What is "Animals & Pets?" Animals bring us great joy, health and inspiration every day of our lives. Where would we be without both our pets and animals in the wild? On the All Things Healing Animals & Pets page, we’re committed to bringing you educational articles, opportunities for animal advocacy, training and safety tips, health and welfare, as well as sources of inspiration and compassion.

Introduction to Animals & Pets
Cathy Alinovi, integrative veterinarian and author of Dinner PAWsible, a pet food cookbook for pets, believes good nutrition is the key to curing most reasons pets come to the vet. &ldq...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: You've seen your kids, or your neighbors' kids, you've seen bulldogs - now - Mick the Cat! Skateboarder Extraordinaire. Doesn't that look fun?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Shocking but possible, meat and bone meal does not tell the consumer what species are included. It really can include rendered pets from animal shelters.

When a friend loses a pet, as we read in the last segment, most often they just want a listening ear. Someone who won’t judge them but will rather let them tell the story of the life they shared with a beloved pet...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Silence is awful. Stillness. Worse. The verb "to be" does not even exist in the Turkish language. Being is a given. How to we just "be" so we can help our friends grieve?

Fat has a bad rap, and it is often vilified in the media. (And please note, this article is about eating fat, not BEING “fat.” Being overweight is rarely a healthy state for pets.)...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Mmmm. Bacon. My Beagle loves bacon - reason to get up in the morning. Conventional wisdom has us trained to think eating fat makes us fat; we must eschew fat and eat carbohydrates instead. And yet, our society gets fatter and fatter eating carbs and avoiding fats. Dogs and cats included. Not Ollie the Beagle - the happy bacon eater. He's trim and fit, and eats bacon. In moderation.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: If a little is good, more must be better!! Or, at least fun when you see this dog's glee!!

Our world is full of subtleties that are often overlooked in the rush of modern life.  Oftentimes we see what is most evident and believe that to be all there is – we miss the web of more subtle events and objects that accompany the obvious but are hidden to the casual observer...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The complete list of a patient's symptoms include how the patient thinks and feels about the world. This part of repertorisation is quite difficult in animals. We either omit and risk losing the right remedy, or we guess and misinterpret how our pets feel. Dr Glen teaches understanding. Thank you.

Cats…cats…cats! What do you feed them when there are no rats?!

Dogs aren’t the only pets to benefit from home-prepared meals. Here’s a little bit of info on the truth behind your bag of commercial cat food...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Best food ever invented for cats: fresh mice. Really. Highest known taurine levels. Good exercise in the process of catching dinner. Mice still eat fresh fruits and veggies that shouldn't be adulterated with GMO ingredients. So, what can we do at home if we can't provide fresh mice? Fresh meat is next best. Dr B shares more tips.

Consider the typical patient that comes to my practice from a conventional allopathic practice. These patients have usually been run through the gauntlet of reductionist medicine where they have received a separate medicine (or several medicines) for each of many diagnoses.


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Each patient who comes to my office is his own set of problems and receives individual care/treatment. Not one size fits all medicine. Is this the root of single dose/single medicine - individuals?

We’ve just passed the Spring Equinox, which means that the season has officially changed!

In addition to changes in the weather and changes in the length of the days and nights, dietary changes are in order as well...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: How can it matter what we feed in the spring (or any other season)? Well, think for a sec, though - we ate stews in winter, salads in summer, fresh fruits in the spring but still some soups as we can still have rainy days. What would our dogs like?

This will be an on-going project, defining pet food ingredients in consumer language. What the ‘official’ definition really means and what questions to ask of manufacturers to make certain you are getting the pet food quality you are paying for...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: How do you define chicken? Personally, it's a feathery, clucking animal pecking at the ground to eat worms, bugs and sort through the compost. Learn what chicken means when it applies to pet food.

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Foster families take many forms. In this video, Bugsy, is not the standard babysitter, but the job is done nicely. It's temporary, Malone will rejoin his species when he's big enough to fend for himself.

As a Christian who has adopted a vegan diet, I’m often asked how I reconcile veganism with the Judeo-Christian belief system. People frequently say “God gave mankind animals as food,” or “God intended for us to eat meat.” Do the Scriptures support those beliefs?...


Editor's Note from Erica Settino: So often our moral and ethical choices are thought to be intertwined with our religious beliefs. Here Kasey Mannis, a Christian and ethical vegan, discusses how she reconciles her religious beliefs with what she believes to be her moral obligation to all living beings.

Animal Holistic Health & Relationships

by Linda Webber

As is the case with all animals, their past experiences have helped to shape their personality and behaviour. Most animals have been traumatised in some way. Separation anxiety, shock, physical pain, are all common life experiences. Many owners are unaware of these aspects of their animal’s history, as they predominantly focus on its physical condition...
