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.

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.

 

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.

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.

“Life is life – whether in a cat, or dog, or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man’s own advantage.”
 
~Sri Aurobindo

 

 

Animals & Pets


by Ihor Basko, DVM, CVA

After our dog Makana died just short of her 20th birthday about 1 year ago, we were so very heart broken that my wife Jane and I never thought we could have another dog...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: How we fill our heart after it is broken from the loss of a pet is different for each of us. This is Dr B's story.

 

Animals & Pets


by Rebecca Braglio

Does your dog absolutely panic when you try to leave the house? Do you come home to find your house destroyed? Are your neighbors complaining about the incessant barking? Your dog may have separation anxiety, a frustrating, serious, and difficult to treat disorder experienced by dogs when their guardians leave them alone...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Is it something in their past? Is it fear of the future? Is it an imbalance in their brain neurotransmitters? There are many approaches to helping dogs with anxiety issues.

 

Animals & Pets


by Judith Orloff, MD

Question: I have a strange circumstance here and was hoping you could give some insight. I am in the sixth month of a high risk pregnancy. When I became pregnant I was encouraged to terminate the pregnancy...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: It would not be the first time a patient had the same diagnosis as the pet parent. Nor would it be the first time they used the same medication to treat their illnesses. How can this be?

 

Animals & Pets


by Kathy Warnes

Although the elderly couple wore anxious expressions as they carried their burden into the waiting room of the veterinary clinic, they managed to project an air of desperate optimism. Their story had to have a happy ending. If it didn't, what would they do...

 

 Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Soul mates come in many shapes, many species. This soul mate to an elderly couple did not spend enough time in his cat body, carried to the vet in a laundry basket.

 

Animals & Pets


by Steven D. Farmer, PhD

Malidoma Patrice Somé is a healer, teacher, and elder of the Dagara peoples in the small West African nation of Burkina Faso in West Africa. He travels extensively giving classes and workshops, and in one of his teachings, he describes how the Dagara believe there are three levels of intelligence on Earth. Plants are considered to be the most intelligent beings, animals second, while humans capture the ribbon for third place...

 

 

Animals & Pets


by Elyse Horvath

Dogs, like people, are intricate beings. Organs, bones, muscles, and fluids, and all of this housed and protected by the largest organ of the body: the skin. Whether thick or thin, tough or delicate, skin is alive with its own ecosystem, needing a balance of strength and elasticity, of moisture and amino acids, a certain spongy give that can produce goose bumps when caressed, or give cushion to a fall...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: What function do paw pads serve? They’re not just for walking/running – and, even the pad way up high on their wrist serves a purpose. Dogs’ pads need care and protection just as the rest of their body does.

 

Animals & Pets


by Karen Becker, DVM

Pet dogs are among the most beloved, well cared-for animals in the world, but sadly, there are other canines that don’t receive the same concern. In fact, human persecution has managed to push six wild canid species to the brink of extinction...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dogs' ancestors are in peril. While our domesticated dogs have adapted and thrive well in our world, ancestral dogs are losing ground every day. These 6 species are important to our world.

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...
