  About Canine Health Concern


Canine Health Concern was formed in 1994 by Catherine O'Driscoll, after two of her beautiful young Golden Retrievers - Oliver and Prudence - tragically died.  She asked, 'why?', and the answers that came back were sufficiently disturbing to make her feel that independent research was necessary - free from commercial bias.  Catherine was sent scientific papers which told her that commercial pet food was nutritionally inadequate, and that many deficiency diseases are the direct result of poor feeding.  She also learnt that the annual shots we give to our pets each year, in the belief that we are protecting them from disease, are actually the largest cause of ill health in our pets today.

CHC advocates real food for dogs.  That is, food that Mother Nature has designed, over millions of years, and which has made the species thrive for millions of years.  Members of CHC who have reverted to a CHC-recommended natural diet have seen illnesses disappear and vet bills plummet.   Our diet survey showed an 85 per cent drop in the number of veterinary visits once dogs were changed to real food.

On 8th July, 2006, I took my 7 year old 76-pound Golden Retriever Gabby, and my 15 month old 14-pound Ragdoll cat Lulu, to the vet for their annual vaccinations. The same vaccination that they both received the previous year at around the same time.

This information will be an encouragement to anyone you know who has a dog that has been diagnosed with lymphosarcoma or any other canine cancer. It is the story of a flat coat retriever called Darby. She is a living miracle. No matter where you are in life and what you have contributed to creating or what is happening, you are always trying to do the best you can until you can find a better way. Maya Angelou put it like this, "You did then what you knew how to do, and when you knew better, you did better."
