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

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Frequently asked question: Why DO dogs eat grass? It's not necessarily to make themselves sick, might be they need some salad to cool their tummies.


Animals & Pets

It was February, 2003. Katie, a 7 year-old German Shorthair hunting dog had returned home in some apparent discomfort from a long day’s hunting with her owner, Stan. Thinking he could ease her soreness, he gave her some ibuprofen, totally unaware of the fact that the ingredients are toxic to dogs and could lead to kidney failure and death...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: This article provides a number of lessons to pet owners. For one, the use of human medications in our pets can often have unintended and terrible consequences. Secondly, that the damage done by "side-effects" is often seen as irreparable, when in fact there may be answers outside of mainstream medicine.

Is your food killing you? Is your pet’s food harming his/her health?

These are bold questions for sure, but they are important to consider in this day and age where industrialization and mass consumerism have led to automated processes in the food industry that result in lower quality products and heavily modified produce...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Controversy continues about labelling GMO foods. This argument has focussed on people food - but what about our pets? Dr Basko leads the charge - what's in your pets' food?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Cats and dogs have many interactions. Watch the tables turn on this tough pup!

As usual, I spent time in meditation to be a channel and set aside my own thoughts and ego before calling to Suzi. I felt the connection very softly. Like she was standing back a bit and wondering who I was...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: My family and I fostered a fun rat terrier, Suzi, but she made potty in the house. While I had fun reading the Princess and the Potty to my daughter when she was little, I didn't like the idea of an adult dog who pooped all over my house. It was a serious downer. But, I couldn't catch her at it to show her where was right to potty. So, I asked Pam for some help, unsure where things would go. Pam usually makes 3 connections. Here is the first connection between Pam and Suzi.

There is very little emphasis placed on wellness by today’s medical community.  In fact, wellness seems to have become an arcane concept that is largely ignored by the medical and pharmaceutical industries in America today...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Wellness - a tribute to my teacher and mentor Dr Glen Dupree. Maintaining wellness is at the heart of homeopathic care. Thank you Dr Glen for your teaching.

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: The emotional support given by our pets is unmeasurable. Jeff Butts shares here how much help his little friend was - when no one else was there for Jeff. Congratulations to Jeff!!

I figured that since I’m always harping on people to feed their pets healthy food, and thus most of my clients are home cooking…then what’s next!?

The next level is…Fasting and Cleansing...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The start of the new year is always a great time to plan on healthy cleanses. Now, with Dr B's help, our pets can join in! Not sure they want to, any more than the two-legged family, but the health benefits outweigh the short discomfort. Let's fast and cleanse together!

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Border Collies are a very intelligent, high energy breed who need a job to keep out of trouble. Zoe has found the perfect outlet for her smarts and her energy. I do think she may need a chiropractor after some of her tricks!!

Over the past few years, I have seen an increase in the amount of referrals I receive for patients with cancer.

On my radio show and within past newsletters, I have often talked about the causes of cancer and how to best prevent the disease...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi:  Cancer - what a scary word. Worse when it applies to our four-legged family!! How do we deal with a cancer diagnosis? How do we help our best friends live with quality and dignity while inside we're worried to bits about "what's next?" As veterinarians, and more so as holistic vets where we care for the whole package, we help our patients' families get through these hard times. Dr B has great insight.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Corporate farming can never give you this. In this documentary, see organic dairy farmer John Branson with his cows. The hard work, he admits, is rewarded by the cyclical relationship of trust and respect he has with the animals, his favorite is Rosie, he's commited to serve. In the end keeping the cows happy brings better milk, a happier animal, and a legacy that can serve as a model for the future.


Animals & Pets


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: This is a cute interpretation of what the cats are saying - but what's really fun - listen to the range of sounds. Cats have up to 60 different sounds (words?) in their vocabulary. They can really tell us how it is!!

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...
