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.

My name is Mary Oquendo and I am half of Hands And Paws-Reiki For All. One of the most common questions I am asked is, “How did such a nice girl like you become involved with all that hoodoo stuff.”...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There is a reason each one of us explores alternatives - from an illness to a sudden, life-changing event. Here's one groomer's path to alternative therapies for pets.

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.

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?

Ah the love of a good dog…

There’s nothing quite like it! You’ve likely experienced this kind of love before – it’s a profound connection built over time and lots of shared experiences...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Even when I was a kid, I connected best with dogs. I've always wanted to save the world for them. But sometimes, I wonder: Am I saving them or are they saving me? There is a lot to learn

Applied Kinesiology or AK for short is what my vet Dr. Cathy Alinovi calls “muscle testing.” I think it was my first, maybe 2nd visit to her...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Just before completing my initial training in veterinary spinal manipulation, one of my teachers let slip that there was more to learn - this was just a basic methods course. And the pelvis - there was a lot more to know. So I promptly enrolled in an Applied Kinesiology course - as it pertains to spinal manipulation (chiropractic) - and boy did I learn about the pelvis. And, a ton more tools to help my patients. This story shares what my clients thought of this new bag of tricks.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Our pets do some incredibly adorable things. Of course, we pet parents think of even funnier takes on the behavior. And, some dogs can dance!

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.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Each species has its own behavior, its own way of protecting each other, of fighting, of communicating. These King Penguins are not only beautiful, but have very special behavior and sounds not shared by any other species.

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

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...
