Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: This adorable otter plays like a dog, rolling over, and playing tag. Too cute!

 

Animals & Pets


by Susan Thixton

Understanding the definitions of common pet food ingredients is significant to understanding what your pet is consuming. Let’s define “meat.”...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Meat. What is it? Is it beef? Is it something we would eat? Let's read.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: So often we wish we knew what our animals were thinking. We often make up words and stories for what we wish they say. Researchers at Emory University have made a step toward being able to measure our pets' thoughts.

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: A bit longer than most videos posted in this section, but I highly recommend anyone interested in feeding raw diets to their dogs and cats watch this. Dr Karen Becker does a great job explaining the benefits of and debunking the myths of feeding raw foods to our pets.

“Dinner PAWsible” has a paw up in that it’s not just a pet food cookbook; it’s a nutritional guide written by someone who has spent 20 years doggedly (if you’ll pardon the pun) researching and investigating pet health and nutrition, and a veterinarian who also has conducted a considerable amount of research into this often highly confusing subject...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Feeding our pets should be healthy, fun and inexpensive. Here's a review of my book, Dinner PAWsible that presents an objective view about why the book was written and the benefits of home cooking for your animals. And, looking for more? Check out this article about Dinner PAWsible on the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

 

Animals & Pets


by Michael Watson

The equinox has passed and the weather, at home, and here at the Atlantic shore, has turned decidedly autumnal. Day after day has featured damp and chill. Fog shrouds the ocean. Fortunately, many trees and plants are wearing their fall raiment, providing bursts of brilliant color in the dimly lit landscape. Here and there a squirrel may be seen. Birdsong fills the air...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: It might be through anthropomorphism that we find humor in our pets; maybe they are just funny as all get out!!

 

Animals & Pets


by Glen Dupree, DVM

Homeopathy is generally considered to be a medicine of the individual because of its basic tenets. This individualistic approach would seem to limit the usefulness of Homeopathy in epidemics and in herd health...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There is not one medicine for all species Thankfully, homeopathy gives us medicines that can treat an entire flock or herd. One remedy - one illness. That is beauty. And health.

 

Animals & Pets


by Chris Colin, Smithsonian Magazine

Isolated, his family deteriorating—“I couldn’t show affection, couldn’t hug my kids”—Soliz turned to the Palo Alto V.A. Medical Center. One recent morning, he talked about his progress. Hanging from his belt was a container of doggie treats, a link to the treatment he credits with saving his life. Soliz participates in Paws for Purple Hearts, one of four experimental programs nationwide that pair veterans afflicted by PTSD with Labrador and golden retrievers...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: The therapeutic value of animals in our lives can be found in so many different ways. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating illness. See how dogs can help veterans overcome their PTSD.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: This Nova Science video is long but worth it.  Learn just how smart dogs are!

 

Animals & Pets


by Coleen Ellis

This Buddhist statement sums it up… “Don’t talk if you can’t improve on silence.”

Whether it’s the fact that we are a society of human doings versus human beings or that we as caring individuals want to take the pain away from a hurting heart, for many of us sitting in silence with someone else is uncomfortable...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Silence. Nothing is harder. But, silence is real. It means dealing with, rather than avoiding. Use silence to help friend deal with grief.

 

Animals & Pets


by Ihor Basko, DVM, CVA

Probably one of the most common questions I get in my practice is, “How do I get started?”

A lot of people find me (or my site) because they’re looking for guidance on how to help their pets live natural and healthy lives or searching for some alternatives to the standard medical approach of pharmaceuticals and surgery...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Changing from conventional to holistic medicine takes a mindset change. Once you are ready to transition - where should you start? Dr B has great suggestions.

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...
