The Research on the Power of Nature

Research – The power of nature: What’s that?

Dear friends, it is with pleasure that I announce the publication – on an international scientific journal (Journal of Immunology Research) – of one of the most important researches realized by SANYpet’s Department of Research and Development – under the guide of immunologist  Prof. Giuseppe Terrazzano – titled “In vitro effects of some botanicals with anti-inflammatory and anti-toxic activity”.

This scientific work not only confirms all the already known antioxidant and antinflammatory properties of medicinal plants, but it’s also the first publication that demonstrates the antitoxic properties of a specific pool of botanicals against oxytetracycline toxicity. We identified the toxic potential of this antibiotic*, legally and widely used in industrial farming.

We have tens of researches that show how our nutraceutical diets (Forza10 Active Line) can solve the majority of chronic diseases in our pets: this is exactly because these pathologies are caused by oxytetracycline residues, that are present way too often in traditional pet food.

I want to be clear on the fact that all pet food companies are – along with the inspection and production chain (health authorities, farmers, meal producers) – victims themselves, since the problem is in legislation itself. As a matter of fact, the law only prescribes control of oxytetracycline residues on muscles, kidneys, liver, eggs, milk and honey, ignoring bone tissue and fat, since they’re not considered as edible.

However, chemical and pharmaceutical contamination mostly takes place through the (unaware) consumption of bone and fat, actual “dumpsters” for toxic substances. We can’t ignore the fact that all food realized with the mechanical separation of meat from bone (wurstel, hamburgers, nuggets, sausages, etc…) can contain bone tissue in various percentages.


Research – The power of nature: Strenghts

I want all pet owner to think about these points:

  • SANYpet, a cruelty free company, was born from clinical observations and experiences on food related pathologies.
  • It has a Research&Development Department that realized tens of researches on the most common chronic or relapsing pathologies of dogs and cats, identifying all the extremely effective recipes of our Active, Legend and Sensitive Lines.
  • It has often worked in collaboration with several universities.
  • It has published more than 20 research on prestigious international scientific journals and is about to publish at least another 5 in the close future, investigating what harms our pets and how to restore their health.
  • It uses exceptional and pristine raw materials for its diets, having also realized two production plants in Iceland for the exact purpose of avoiding any kind of contamination from oxytetracycline.
  • It has suppliers from New Zealand, another land that’s as pristine and uncontaminated as Iceland.
  • It has an in-depth knowledge on the worst pollutants and on how to avoid them and, thanks to the know-how of Dr. Gianandrea Guidetti, on how to best use medicinal plants to restore health.
  • It has important international patents on technologies developed in order to protect the effectiveness of botanicals.
  • It has an in-depth knowledge in regard to the delicate balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, that are extremely important.
  • It has done everything to be the most trustworthy company for the health of your beloved furry friends.
  • Everyone makes claims, we keep our promises, you have the word of Sergio Canello.

Medicine Is an Inexact Science


It’s necessary to remember that medicine is not and will never be an exact science.
Biology teaches us that each of us is equal only to ourselves and that individual reactions are always different.

Knowledge will of course continue making progress, as we clearly see current emergency treatments able to literally resurrect a person who, not more than fifteen to twenty years ago, would have been destined for certain death. However, it’s important to point out that the principle of unpredictability will always exist and that every therapy will constantly involve the risk of unexpected death.

Unfortunately the medicine section in newspapers and certain magazines, often conducted by journalist without a medical degree and unaware of daily clinical reality, spread the wrong message of medicine always winning, creating a belief in patients that the fault of death is always on the doctor or malpractice.

Unfortunately, often doctors lowered their integrity by meeting the unrealistic expectations of their patients by pretending to know everything.
In fact, I suggest skepticism of doctors and veterinarians who always have a ready diagnosis.

Knowledge and experience can at times afford an immediate diagnosis, but there are and will always be many situations where a precise diagnosis will be impossible, even after dozens of tests.
It’s easy to be quick with a diagnosis, but it’s much more difficult  to take each case with an honest and serious approach, particularly when not every answer is clear.

Searching for the Guilty

Searching for the guilty in every human situation has become an imperative for journalists.

In recent decades, the medical field has soared from an unacceptable state of the untouchable doctor to, even worse, a state of systematic criminality upon the occurrence of any incident.

For example, a team of doctors have even been incriminated for not being able to save a newborn that was missing half of its heart! We have gone from one extreme to the other, thus certainly generating a distorted view of reality.

This situation is now widespread in all sectors. Let’s think how we came to incriminate the great risk commission because of the underestimated risk of an earthquake. A magistrate put on trial a technician that didn’t think to evacuate the city facing the succession of shock.

Is it possible that we don’t realize that according to this principle, every city should be evacuated in response to every shock? It is a universally accepted fact that the first shock in 98% of cases is the strongest.
There was no way for him to behave differently from the way he was without causing constant chaos.

Let’s think about cases for negligent custody when a child or an elderly person has a serious or mortal incident: does anybody really believe that carelessness is the cause of every case? Or is it more correct to think of this as a reality of life and reflect upon the many times these fatalities could have happened to our children or parents instead of someone less fortunate.
I recently read with dismay a comment of the Corriere della Sera journalist that sang praises to the courage of a woman who has sued a hospital for the death of her mother who, at night went to turn off her neighbors light, stumbled and died instantly. According to the journalist, the woman, who had managed to convict the hospital to the result of very high compensation, was considered a champion of justice.

Who is able to control every movement of another person, a loved one, or a person entrusted to them?
For example, which teacher can protect their students from an accidental fall, or from a push by another child?

Who is able to prevent every misfortune? I believe that those (especially the journalist who has written the quoted article and even more the judge who issued the sentence) ready to condemn episodes just due to fatality, should, objectively reflect upon their own lives.
Certainly think well before saying that with these incidences there is an inevitable negligence.

Justice is to condemn those who neglect their duty, something quite different from the judge punishing every fatality.

Now, there are orders of the daily process for doctors involved in the death of a patient. I am convinced of this particular judge and journalist, even if I don’t know them personally, that they always blame others and never themselves. I invite you to look at yourself before you look at others.

Be wary of those who tear their clothes and get offended: most of the time, they have more skeletons in their closet than anyone else.

Dog in Its Present Reality

Present reality and dogs

Before talking about techniques and problems related to the education of a puppy, it is essential to give an overview of the changes that have occurred in the last 15 years to the character of dogs and try to give an explanation.

If we consult any serious encyclopedia of dog breeds, we find descriptions of character types that have almost nothing to do with the subjects that live in our homes and cities. If, for example, we read the description of a German Shepherd, we still find it praised as an animal that is exceptionally well balanced, reliable, child friendly, and docile.

Honestly, these characteristics are difficult to recognize in todays German Shepherd. It’s easy for anyone to notice the profound changes that have occurred in this species and most others in the course of a few years.
This problem is related to exasperated selective breeding processes that often prioritize aesthetic factors.

These changes are particularly apparent by the increase of, largely unmotivated, aggression and fear. It’s clear that a certain degree of aggression and caution is part of the normal genetic heritage of each species. It is absolutely wrong to consider such characteristics as a deviation, but it’s also true that in the past few years all of the “experts” have found such an increase in behavioral problems that they are thinking of “veterinary psychiatry”.

It’s also obvious, unfortunately, that these signs of unbalanced behavior in puppies are often deliberately ignored by both the breeders and the owners; as if the problem can be solved by turning a blind eye.

As a logical consequence, adult animals are created that cause all kinds of problems for themselves and their owners.

Having ascertained the existence of such a problem, we must now list the causes and find possible solutions.

Inflammation: An Enemy to Fight or an Ally to Respect?

It’s becoming more and more frequent to see various advertisements in the media (newspapers, magazines, television, and radio) inviting us to use anti-inflammatory, painkiller, and anti-diarrhea medications.

It is difficult to comprehend the scope at which the vast majority of doctors are prescribing these drugs for even the most mundane of processes. Obviously this mechanism has been influenced by pharmaceutical companies. The meaning of the medicine, the symptoms, and what happens in the body during a sickness has come to be completely misrepresented.

Is it a logical therapeutic practice to block a bodily process that forty million years of evolution has elaborated? Would it be logical to treat a muscle tear with an anti-inflammatory and immediately start running? Or would it be better to not strain the injury until it has healed?

No one disputes the effectiveness of these therapies and we see the result. People with a fever, pain, or constipation taking miraculous tablets and all of their symptoms quickly disappear. Society wants efficiency and our constant presence at all costs.

Do the effects of these drugs have consequences, and what could be the damage?

Although there is no immediate evidence, the systematic suffocation of the body’s natural responses leads to the continuation and increase of chronic and / or degenerative diseases. In practice, restraining the body from having a normal defensive response means preventing the complete elimination of the morbid stimulus. This forces the defense systems to elaborate a new balance, which is certainly less effective than the original, with inevitable movement from the acute and chronic towards degenerative diseases.

An analogy may clarify this concept: the elimination of a city’s waste happens by the contribution of an incinerator. When operated, the population is inconvenienced by smoke, heat, noises, and the nuisance of emissions.
Similarly, the pain, discomfort, and distress of inflammation are byproducts of a necessary process.

Do we really think that by turning off inflammations we are doing what’s best?

In the same way that turning off the incinerator would leave waste in the city to pollute the environment, turning off the inflammation with drugs leaves harmful toxins in the body. The situation is even worse if the pathological stimulus persists, because it forces the body to process a chronic inflammation.
This unpleasant process is disabling and painful, but the best and only way to manage a morbid stimulus. If the waste continues to be produced, the incinerator will be forced to work continuously. In this case, the administration of an anti-inflammatory would be even more fraught with possible consequences.

All of this obviously doesn’t mean that this category of drug needs to be demonized. However, it must be clear that their use is contrary to the natural laws of the body. To face a machine as enchantingly complex as a living being, requires our compliance.

The anti-inflammatory should be an exclusively selected drug for those cases in which it is impossible to remove the cause of the inflammation or when it’s either unknown, unidentifiable, or not treatable in the correct way.
Therefore, it should be used with extreme caution and an awareness of the effects that may result in the body.

The Appearance of a New Clinical Picture

A New Clinical Picture

In the last few years, the picture of dog and cat physiology has been rapidly transformed for the worse.

Two violent changes have occurred, the first being a large quantity of diseases and secondly the relative behavior.

This development of strong and intense new disease patterns were absolutely missing in previous years. Skin was the most stricken organ, with dry or wet dermatitis of considerable severity. Numerous animals were affected by various degrees of severity. Frequently, the sore skin hot spot would make the animal do self-biting or furious scratching of the shoulder, back, or croup area. It’s not that the animals were crazy, they were simply trying to get to the specific zone to “massacre” the itch. During the summer, I saw six or seven disease cases a day.

Pyoderma has exploded with these animals. The spaces between their toes were sprinkled with blisters and bubbles full of pus. Even their elbows and chins were often severely affected. Numerous dogs were also affected on the skin of the abdomen, with thickening coming to pachyderm (thick skin like the one of an elephant) and lichenification (thickening marked by numerous furrows).

Many males were affected from dermatitis of the scrotum. The skin of this delicate organ thickened and closed around, it was very sore and the poor animal had to sit carefully, licking with its tongue to cope with the pain.

The otitis was also very serious, usually chronic and unilateral, often with significant tissue degeneration, forcing colleagues to create new surgical techniques to try to resolve such cases (it came to modifying the structure of the ear canal to drain abundant purulent secretions, which had caused impressive cell ulceration and proliferation).
In the more serious cases, there were colleagues who had to completely remove the ear canal.

Dermatitis has clearly always existed, but the new forms and symptoms we observed were markedly different and more violent than the classical form.
For example, it was common to find wet dermatitis that affected almost the entire skin surface of the animal, sometimes just sparing the head.
I happened to see animals almost in meat alive on the whole body, really scary scene. Many granuloma paws, circumscribed lesions and so itchy that the dog or cat constantly licking or scratching. Obviously the picture were different from the sarcoptic mange and the demotic one, also very frequent in that historical period.

At the gastrointestinal level was not better with the appearance of the chronic gastritis and enteritis hemorrhagic.
Even the ocular system was often involved with keratitis (cornea inflammation) uveitis and panoftalmity (pathologies that concerned almost the entire eyeball), also with an itch that made more than one animal to further damage their eye by scratching with its paw.
Stomatitis (inflammation of the mouth) and gingivitis, especially in cats, was very frequent.
The uterus was also affected, with serious secondary infections and inflammations.

The pathologies I just described were not present when I started practicing my profession, in the short period between 1975 to 1980, I have dedicated a large part of my time towards analyzing possible causes of these serious clinical conditions that are afflicting a significant number of cats and dogs.

Through the spirit of observation (which is a particular skill for me, in other scenarios I wouldn’t see an elephant passing by in front of my eyes), I was able to identify a clear relation between certain foods and the practical and instant development of the various diseases just described.

I discovered that the main cause was the essential food element: the meat.

How was it possible that essentially carnivorous animals were having problems with this nutrient?

I understood immediately, it was obviously not the meat itself causing the problem, but rather something alien found inside.

The Research on Fertility

The Research on Fertility: my experience

More than 40 years of experience in the clinical field have allowed me to study and realize the ability of nutraceutical nutrition (treatment through the use of medicinal plants in the nutrition) to bring the body back from physiological conditions. In males, the restoration of spermatogenesis and the libido.

For females, improvement upon the regular rhythm of estrus, the fulfillment of physiological childbirth, the natural number of puppies per litter, and neonatal mortality.

I have verified numerous cases in which the restoration of physiological conditions through proper nutrition ensures a return to normality from childbirth.

As a positive consequence, we are witnessing a drastic reduction of post-partum (also influenced by the degree of elasticity of the blood vessels), with consequence reduction of the state of successive debilitation of the mother and the phenomenon of the mother crushing the puppies involuntarily.

Without postpartum severe bleeding, the state of nutrition of the newborns will be positively influenced by a more complete and rich milk, simplifying the life for all (the owner, mother, and puppies).

A Fortunate Clinical Experience

I tell you my Clinical Experience

As luck would have it, the opening of my clinic coincided with a boom in the ownership of small animals, which determined a very favorable situation from every perspective: very few veterinary experts and many new clients oriented towards bringing their dog or cat to a trained veterinarian.

Consider that between Padova and Province, there were only five clinics, with a total population of over 200,000 people. It should be added those who live in the Venetian, who preferred to drive to Padova rather than having to walk in Venice. Considering prudently the presence of a pet for every four families, every one of us had available a veritable empire.
The owners regularly required inspections, tests and vaccinations for their animals, and (much more than today) they matched their females and the puppies were numerous (now if the animals are not owned by breeders, nearly all are sterilized). There were also numerous acute and chronic diseases and consequently I acquired clinical experience at the highest level.

I can say that, after less than two years of profession, I visited between controls and the first visits, 50/60 animals average per day during the summer and 30/40 during the winter season. Not to mention all the surgical interventions: the work started at 9:30 in the morning and finished around 21/22 at night.
Every veterinarian was a “spin doctor”, ranging from a radiology clinic, to surgery, to the laboratory.

In the garage, I still have all of the surgery equipment for various laboratory tests.
This considerable mass of clinical cases, together with the vision of “all-out” that I have acquired a course of homeopathy in Florence (held by real doyen of this form of medicine, his colleague Franco del Francia, (who died just a few months ago) a person of absolutely high culture) have allowed me to follow step by step the evolution, or better the involution of both canine and feline universe use.

When Medical Malpractice and When Fatality?

Even the most prepared doctor, can never know all possible situations and existing diseases. They will be subjected, as all human beings are, to bad days that may only become clear when it’s too late.

Let’s recall that there are unpredictable diseases or fulmination that result in the death of an animal or a person which maybe just came out from a complete checkup. No control or series of checkups will give you an absolute guarantee that the whole body is in order. A living being is not like a car where you can change the pieces in a mechanical and predictable manner.

Let’s then clearly distinguish medical malpractice, which happens when we work without the necessary care and attention needed for the extreme complexity of the body.

Even the most updated doctors, like all humans, are fallible. In retrospect, every situation gone wrong leads to thinking that it’s the result of an error, and therefore the fault of the doctor who prescribed certain exams, underestimated the problem, or failed the therapy.
Certainly, in many situations this is true, but in others, it’s almost impossible to prevent the problem. Then, how can the therapist take precaution to avoid such situations?
Paradoxically the only defense they have is not to act in good faith, but to follow the Hippocratic Oath, to which every doctor must comply.
This leads to curing the patient and prescribe medicines and exams only when it’s necessary, without abusing it. But as a doctor, nowadays, are we able to practice our profession according to these principles?
We all know how many problems are due to stress and have a real organic root.

Think of the tachycardia, palpitations and to the extra systoles, just as an example. The doctor knows perfectly that their origin is nearly always psychosomatic and after the first thorough control to identify any organic disease, he should avoid to prescribe mountains of exams and drugs. Only those ethically and ideally convinced of their work will do it, risking complaints, processes, arrests, and jail.

All others, with human care will adhere strictly to the existing protocols, a powerful umbrella against such occupational hazards, but often leads to the inability to act according to common sense.
Let’s always remember that it’s much easier for a doctor to take care than not, but it has to be clear that it’s not for sure the best way of practicing medicine, especially when considering the side effects of most drugs and many diagnostic tests.
Here then, appear dozens of papers on informed consent to be signed by patients to unburden the doctor from the more serious responsibilities in case of negative reactions to the therapy.

The Meaning of Symptoms

Many therapeutic protocols are born from an aberrant interpretation: the symptoms are universally considered as expressions of disease, while in fact, they are the exact opposite.

All the symptoms that appear in the course of a disease are expressions of the body’s reaction mechanism and are thus evaluated.

Let’s try to reflect on some common symptoms:

  • Inflammation is the healing process of the body.
  • Vomiting is the mechanism by which the body clears the stomach from harmful or toxic substances or elements.
  • Diarrhea is the mechanism by which the body gets rid of poisoning or damaging substances as fast as possible.
  • Cough is the mechanism by which the body can expel phlegm formed in the course of the defense from the larynx, bronchi, and lungs.
  • Fever is the defense system that “burns” the germs and prevents their growth.
  • Pain is the mechanism that induces the body to not fulfill determined movements or activities, in order to avoid further damage to the damaged organ.
  • Muscular contraction is a mechanism by which the body faces a temporarily injured district.

Let’s look to the example of “lumbago”, a disease almost all of us have incurred during our life, and reflect on the meaning of the symptoms that appear during this very painful and debilitating disease.

The muscle contractions of the spine act as a “cast”. In this way, the body prevents movement that would risk to expand the damages.

The pain is the most effective tool that the body can achieve to prevent the affected subject to move freely, also in this case amplifying stress on the affected area.

The inflammation is the process by which the body “repairs” the injury in place.

Any medical textbook teaches this to students, but then veterinarians and pharmacists often work in exactly the opposite direction.

The more revealing example perhaps is the very real meaning of inflammation.
