WARNING:

Cats love the taste of anti-freeze, but if they drink it, they die

“With winter now upon us vets are warning owners of cats of the danger of antifreeze poisoning. Your cat may find it sweet and tasty, but anti-freeze is also deadly.”

“A Wakefield vet has issued a stark reminder to cat owners of the dangers of antifreeze. The warning from Calder Vets comes in the wake of the death of two cats from the same family. Vets suspect the pair became ill after drinking antifreeze.” – Wamiz

Mary knows everything there is to know about the physiology of dogs and cats. For over 40 years she has studied and observed almost every single wild cat on the planet and knows the anatomy and physiology of wolves, all wild cats, and all domestic dogs and cats as well.

Mary is a Certified Pet Nutritionist – she became certified in the early 1990’s.

She is also a Certified Homeopath — a pet expert knowledgeable in proper, complete raw food feeding of both dogs and cats. She knows how to raise animals/pets Naturally without horrible vaccines; toxic heart worm pills; chemical flea, tick & mosquito products or de-wormers.
