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?

In the dog world, flexibility training is often overlooked. Flexibility allows for better range of motion which can aid in reducing the risk of injury and improve overall performance. Stretching your dog’s muscles also improves circulation of water and nutrients throughout the body and promotes relaxation. In addition, stretching is an integral part of muscle growth...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: We've all learned since we were kids that stretching and exercise go together. Flexibility improves strength, allowing the muscles more length over which to contract. The same is true of the canine athlete.

I often get requests for posts.

 

I usually do my best to meet the request, and when I had more time on my hands, it was usually done within a week of the request.

I don’t mind doing posts that readers request...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Labrador retrievers are great dogs - fun, happy, loving, and great water dogs. But how and where did they originate?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Trauma, mental or physical, shapes our lives. These three surprising friends experienced both types of trauma and have formed a permanent, and unlikely, unbreakable bond.

In a crisis, the dry pellets of the remedy may be dropped directly into the patient’s mouth.

If the situation does not allow for that or if you are not comfortable with a dry dosing method, simply drop 1-3 pellets into a volume of water (the exact amount is not that important). Stir or shake well...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: What are the logistics of giving homeopathic medicines to animals? It's not always as hard, or easy, as it might seem.

English grandfather, Roger Wilday, was walking his German Shepard, Jade, in a park last week, when his dog suddenly ran over to a cluster of bushes and refused to come when Wilday called him. Wilday finally went over to Jade to find out what she was so adamant about showing him...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Amazing stories of rescues warm our hearts and renew faith. This wonderful dog finds and saves a baby. Miracle.

You’re a smart discerning dog owner who knows the value and importance of buying a top quality pet food for your dog.

Perhaps you went to your local pet shop and picked out a a bag of food labeled natural/organic, grain-free, etc...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: TV dinner - not the most healthful. Kibble, even the "high" quality stuff, might just be fancy TV dinner for our pets.

Is your dog itchy? Suffering from itchy skin and constantly scratching. Natural Remedies could be the answer. Natural remedies and herbal treatments can offer a gentle, non invasive solution to this problematic  condition...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: 60-80% of most conditions seen by veterinarians deals with skin. Itchy, flaky, dry, shedding skin. Which one affects your dog?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Kids always promise to walk the puppy, feed the puppy, clean up after the puppy, if only we'd get a new puppy! In this lucky family, the big dog takes care of at least the walking part. Smart, if you ask me!

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Polar bears are usually loners, except when the mother bear is raising her cubs. This polar bear mama and her adorable twin cubs display behavior that reminds us of ourselves, as well displays bear specific behaviors. Watch how much fun they all have together.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The Iditarod. Makes people think of sled dog races. The word is actually a small town in Alaska where the race moves through, not even the start or finish line. But what about the dogs? The dogs at Denali National Park are ambassadors - examples of what great athletes the Alaskan dog is. Thousands of visitors come each summer to meet these beauties. Let's see them too.

Animal Holistic Health & Relationships
