About the author:
A graduate of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Charles Danten practiced veterinary medicine for eighteen years, ten of which were spent in his own veterinary clinic near Montreal, Quebec. At different times during his career, Dr. Danten cared for companion, farm, and zoo animals. A growing awareness of the undesirable aspects of human-animal relationships led him to sell his clinic and leave the profession altogether.

Slaves of Our Affection
 

The Myth of the Happy Pet

Authored by Charles Danten
Edited and translated by Erin Lestrade
Edition: 1

This provocative exposé puts our most revered interactions with animals under the microscope. Meticulously documented, it raises poignant questions about the nature of our relationships with animals and reveals little-known aspects of the industry behind it all.
Pet food manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, veterinarians, shelters, humane societies, animal activists, factory farms, and even pet owners are at the core of a subtle exploitation that operates under the guise of love and compassion.
