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.

In war-torn Afghanistan, an injured bengal-stripped cat found a friend just in time.

Sgt. Jesse Knott saw the kitty limping around the edges of a concrete barrier meant to protect the base from mortar attacks...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Pets can help our mental health in unmeasurable ways. While it's known that pets can reduce patients' blood pressure, how do we measure what pets do for our mental state. Sgt Knott can tell you.

Although the elderly couple wore anxious expressions as they carried their burden into the waiting room of the veterinary clinic, they managed to project an air of desperate optimism. Their story had to have a happy ending. If it didn't, what would they do...


 Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Soul mates come in many shapes, many species. This soul mate to an elderly couple did not spend enough time in his cat body, carried to the vet in a laundry basket.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Some things in life just aren't fair!! (Ask my daughter, lol!!) These dogs certainly feel treated unfairly when they family cat takes over the bed. Is there enough room?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Sneaky thief or well-trained crew? Decide for yourself.

After being a groomer for 17 years, and having a plethora of pet shampoos at my disposal, this is a difficult question. One thing that stands out to me as a groomer, and a consumer, is pet products do not require ingredient labeling on the shampoos because they are not regulated...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: While our dogs may enjoy the grubby feel, we usually like them clean and shiny. But where do we start? Well, with the shampoo of course - what to look for when picking.

Every dog’s situation is different, so what worked for Jenna may not work for your dog. If one of these natural remedies isn’t doing it for your nervous dog, try another one! This is a laundry list of everything that’s worked and one thing that didn’t work for us but does for too many other dog owners to leave out of the list...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: From thunderstorms and fireworks to traveling in cars and meeting strangers, some dogs can have quite the array of anxiety issues. Even if your dog just has one, tiny little phobia, it can make some situations awkward to say the least. Here are some great tips to help.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: I'm not sure what I want for my 80th birthday, but Dr Jane Goodall knows what she wants. Reintroducing Wounda to the wild is the beginning of making Dr Goodall's dream come true.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Good momma cats (queens) have very strong maternal instincts. It is common for queens to share litters - kind of a nursery school for kitties; this is believed to occur when the females are related - save their genetic line. Regardless, for some cats, it doesn't matter who they nurse.

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.

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!

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...
