Fall is my favorite time of year! Air is crisp, apples are on the trees, leaves are changing color, and the weather is in transition. We’re leaving behind the heat and humidity of summer, but the cold, frigid air of winter is not yet upon us. But with that transition comes the potential for hurricanes, tornados, and other massive storms. While tornados sneak up on us, hurricanes do not. The key to weathering (Ha Ha) these storms is preparation.

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There are many things pet owners need to worry about as we enter cooler seasons - from weather to holidays to family celebrations. Read on to see how to keep your pets safe.

The holidays have arrived, and if you are one of the fortunate ones with friends and family that you like to spend time with, the holidays mean parties, dinners, gift exchanges and get-togethers...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: No matter your background or belief, holidays bring stress. Stress in the human family leads to stress in the pet family - they can see what's going on with us - we wear it on our sleeve. How can we help our fur-legged family make it through our holiday stress? Here are some great ideas. Bonus - they ideas work for people too.

Yesterday a hummingbird flew into my 2-legged’s bedroom and crashed against one of the walls. She then fell to the floor where she laid stunned and in shock. I came over and barked to call my 2-legged’s attention to this accident.

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Happenstance brings a hummingbird to the care of Beaujangles, his human and their friends. How love and energy helped a winged friend live.

First things first:  Regardless of your dog’s age, or the cause, this is a medical emergency. The causes can range from infection, to trauma, to disc disease.

Important note: In cases of disc disease, the longer your dog lays there, the more permanent the damage to the spinal cord may be.

  

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Panic situation: Dog can't walk! What to do and what could be the cause? Alternative medicine gives many hopeful options for the down dog; options that are far less expensive and at least as effective, if not more so, than conventional veterinary medicine.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Communication comes in many forms. Body language can go along way to explain a given perspective.

There are many, many possible causes for this. So, let me go through a few of the most possible. First, how long has it been? If everything else seems to be “normal” with your pet, it’s okay to go up to 24 hours without eating. It’s possible he has the flu. 

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: What seems like a fundamental question may not really be. Often, pet owners don't know when they should take action and seek medical care and when it's okay to wait. Since pets don't talk to explain what they are feeling, we humans need some other surrogate measures to know how to proceed.

It is the Law of Similars which most directly separates Homeopathy from conventional or allopathic medicine. The second law furthers this separation by demanding the medicines of Homeopathy be tested to the fullest so that we can adhere to the Law of Similars. This second law states that all medicines used by the Homeopath must be proved.

 

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: It is fascinating how little drug knowledge is needed before a pharmaceutical drug is allowed on the market as compared to the level of knowledge regarding for homeopathic remedies. 200 pages of symptoms vs a 4 page tri-fold. 200 pages of information is a bit more detailed.

The day before Thanksgiving, 2010. A young woman I’ll call Anna winds down the CAS driveway and pulls up to the main barn. Animal Care Director Abbie Rogers and I go out to meet her; we’ve been expecting her and her passenger.

In a crate in the back of her hatchback, a large white turkey...

 

Editor's Note: Kathy Stevens, Founder and Director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, NY, and I am blessed to say, my friend, offers a different perspective of our all too often tainted view of farm animals, and implores us, by introducing the voice and soul of her friend Henrietta, to chose a compassionate cuisine this holiday season - and everyday thereafter.

Dogs are man’s best friend for a reason: Many dogs would do anything for us, and, in turn, we bet a lot of you would do anything for your dogs. In some cases, that means making sacrifices to your homes, travel plans and daily routines so your furry friends will be happier and healthier.

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dogs play such a vital role in our lives - sharing everything with us from our bed to our food. What have you given up for your dog?

 

 


 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The health benefit from watching videos of animals is extraordinary! May your serotonin levels rise.

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...
