The relationship between our teeth & sugar probably began before we could even walk. Pediatricians tell parents not to put their baby to bed with a bottle of sugary juice because it will destroy the child’s teeth...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Oral health is not just a matter of clean teeth - it actually starts with what we feed our pets. Just like us, the better we eat, the better our teeth.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The best teacher is a teacher who loves the students. Dogs love unconditionally. Yori, a service dog to autistic students, helps his mom teach her students and show the children love – helping them learn.

As a grieving pet parent, the grief journey is one that requires work,… “he who mourns, mends.” This work needs to come in the form of doing active mourning...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Like most people, I don't enjoy reliving pain. However, Coleen reminds us to experience the pain once so we can properly mourn the loss of our pets. See Part 1.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: This dog is so cute - poor thing really wants that treat! Something to realize: if your dog used to catch treats and can't anymore - something is wrong. It may be an early sign of blindness. Enjoy this puppy, but do keep it a the back of your mind - just a thought of warning.

Manual Ligament Therapy is an osteopathic technique that was originally designed by Arik Gohl for use with people. It is based on the work of Dr. Hugh Logan (Logan Basic Technique) in collaboration with other chiropractors and osteopaths. Manual Ligament Therapy utilizes the sensory attributes of ligaments to alleviate tightness...

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Manual Ligament Therapy is of great benefit to many patients. Not only is it an effective stand-alone treatment, I have found that it can also be used to help manipulative therapies "hold" better, as a general relaxation technique for anxious pets, and a soft technique excellent for fragile geriatric patients.

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Sparta the kitten is a feisty boy! With 66 million views, it might be worth seeing just how mean Sparta really is, or is he?

This article is intended to provide a limited scope introduction to prolotherapy for pain relief in the dog and cat. Prolotherapy is an injection-based treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Historically, prolotherapy dates back to the time of Hippocrates and modern prolotherapy was developed beginning in the 1930’s by George Hackett MD, a general surgeon. Dr Hackett published one of the first textbooks on prolotherapy in 1956...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Though a longer article, this piece is very informative and readers will gain a lot of valuable information on a option that is frequently not mentioned as an option for pain management.

Animals & Pets

by Karen Gellman, PhD, DVM and Judith M. Shoemaker, DVM

In our last chapter on posture, we explored why standing up is so important for animals and people. So, what are some of the reasons our dogs have trouble standing comfortably or “stacking” correctly? The upper neck, the feet and dentition/skull shape turn out to be the biggest players in abnormal posture, because they are areas rich in nerve cells that report on the animal’s relationship to gravity, and are vulnerable to changes from domestication. In this part, we discuss the relationship of the head and neck...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: In part one, Drs Gellman and Shoemaker introduced us to the concept of neutral stance and correct posture in dogs. In part two, they discuss how abnormal postures can occur, both naturally and man-made, and how to help avoid them.

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...
