Canine athletes have big drive and are usually very energetic. Thus, these require energetically dense foods that can supply Blood tonifying elements, and, of course, Qi (energy) boosters. Even the most skeptical trainers will be open to using alternative medicine if it means their athlete's performance will improve. In March 2015, Brown, an eight year old male Border Collie and agility athlete presented for an evaluation.


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Athletes are great fun to work with - they are well-trained and well-mannered but can be quite sensitive. Their sensitive nature mean they quickly show problems but also quickly respond to the proper treatment.

If you’re a dog owner, I’m sure you’ve heard this refrain. Conventional wisdom says that young puppies come to us as blank slates.  Full of promise and limitless potential, ready to be molded into your ideal companion as long as you do your part – provide lots of love, the right amount of discipline, and appropriate training along the way.  If you’re a caring, responsible pet owner, there’s no reason that your puppy should not grow up to be a model canine citizen. “Bad” dogs are the fault of bad owners, right?  After all, it’s all in how you raise them.


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Terriers tend to do terrier things while hounds express hound dog-like behavior - how much is pre-determined by genetics?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Not only do I think this is an amazing theme song for human daily life, I believe dogs and cats live the Happy Song from day to day.

Here’s a quick multiple-choice test.

I place Toby, a 12-year-old golden retriever, on the table and turn on the high velocity dryer...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: For those of us who have pets and/or patients with seizures, a full-blown seizure can be quite scary. Can you imagine, how much more shocking it is when in the middle of bathing someone's dog, the poor things has a seizure? Some seizures can be incredibly scary - whole body, screaming, pee and poop everywhere - and some are pretty mild cases of tremors. Here are some suggestions to of what to do.

We get a fair number of calls from people wanting to know how to introduce a new pet into their family, or with problems resulting from bringing a new pet home...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: How to acclimate a new pet to the family is a frequently asked question - here's Cindy's great advice. Not only steps to do ahead of time, but during and after to make the whole family integrate more smoothly.

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: Learning is one way to keep young - always using the brain helps the body work better longer. Dr Waters' rottweilers hold many more keys to longevity. What can a 16 year old rottweiler teach us about life?

Last week we covered the emotional component of dealing with cancer in your pets. In the second part of this series on cancer, we’re going to look at some common treatment options and how to select the best treatment plan for your pet...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There are many options to consider if our pets are diagnosed with cancer. This article reviews the conventional options; there are pros and cons to any treatment method.

You need to neuter your animal, right? I mean, that’s just basic: there are too many unplanned pregnancies, too many euthanasias because of that, and you need to be responsible and just do this. Right?...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: When is the right age to neuter? Used to be 6 months. Then it was 3 pounds. They say mammary cancer is more prevalent in unaltered females. But, young neutering makes dogs taller. (Llamas and horses, too.) So, what is the right answer?


Animals & Pets


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: From a veterinary perspective, big dog/little dog interactions can be scary for the little dog. However, all of these interactions don't have to be dangerous. Quincy and Sadie show us just how cute big dog/little dog interactions can be. Instead, they show us that dogs can tell when they are dealing with puppies and babies - so they deal extra carefully with the puppies.

So you’ve had the time to process your emotions around your pet’s cancer diagnosis, and have taken the steps to consider your treatment options through conventional medicine...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: In this third article about cancer in our pets, Dr Basko provides a very thorough listing of alternative treatments available. In holistic medicine, the entire patient is considered, not just the cancer. By treating the whole patient, better cancer fighting results can sometimes be achieved. Our pets deserve it.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: If humans could do what animals can do the world would look much different. Here's an idea what it might be like.

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...
