ANIMALS & PETS
What is "Animals & Pets?" Animals bring us great joy, health and inspiration every day of our lives. Where would we be without both our pets and animals in the wild? 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.

by Glen Dupree, DVM, CVH

The first confusion is what to actually call a practice which uses anything other than conventional, Western medicine. The buzz words are Holistic, Wholistic, Alternative, Complementary, Quackery…….None seem to fill the bill adequately...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Conventional medicine teaches examination to the smallest part and treating that affected part. Except the part lives in the whole. Learning how to think of the whole patient is holism. Thank you Dr Glen for your teaching.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Basset lovers know what they are in for when adding a new Basset to the family. For those who don't know, here's some insight into the joys of Bassets. Did I mention many drool quite a bit? And really, all dogs shake . . .

Turns out that 80% of "organic" egg production comes from "mega-farms" that can hold as many as 100,000 hens in tight quarters with only 2'X2' door to give them access to the outdoors that give access to 1-3% of the flock at any one time. Still, according to the FDA, that means that the birds are "cage free", have access to the outdoors and the eggs are "organic..."

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Who but Mr Beaujangles would better sniff out a story about the health of our food system? Here's what's going on in eggs. Thanks Beau!

The recent past has witnessed a steady increase of troubled adolescents interfacing with the law. The phrase “at risk youth” refers to an adolescent who struggles with moderate to severe emotional and behavioral disturbances, often leading them into areas which threaten their future - such as gang culture, violence, petty/felony crime, substance abuse and incarceration....


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Some things just don't need words. At SROL, horses teach kids things the kids could never hear/learn from an adult. Let's see what it's about in New Jersey.

 

Animals & Pets


by Cindy Huff

We’ve become much more aware of relationships in the last few months at home – relationships that are developing and changing – between various members of our animal family...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Why can't we just get along? Perhaps how our pets learn to communicate can help humans in their relationships? What can we learn?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The stereotypical Labrador Retriever loves to play ball and loves to swim. But, not all labs fit the mold. Some may not fetch; this one chooses not to jump in the pool. But, that doesn't mean he's not a thinker.

 

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

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?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: I love to watch puppies play! How much more fun is it when the puppy plays with a big, fun cat, and the cat gives it right back? Wonder what will happen when the puppy is bigger?

 

Animals & Pets


by Jonathan Reynolds

If dogs and cats were capable of visiting the places where commercial pet food comes from, would they still want to eat it? It's perhaps an interesting question, but realistically, most dogs and cats will never visit a factory farm over the course of their lives. They rely entirely on their human caretakers to research, understand, and decide what's best for them...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi:The title really says it all: now that I know better, I don’t feed my four-legged family anything that I wouldn’t feed to the two-legged one. It’s an excellent rule of thumb (only a few caveats – no grapes, raisins or raw onions).

 

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.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: While it is amazing to see these swans feeding the fish, I imagine if something as big as the Koi were pushing into me, I'd feed it 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...
