A few weeks ago, taking advantage of some rare downtime, I eagerly picked up a recent issue of The New Yorker. Paging through the magazine, I came across an article featuring Homer Sean Brock, a chef who specializes in down- home southern cooking. A photo of Mr. Brock holding a baby pig stopped me in my tracks...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: I had a pet pig as a kid - Cindy. She used to jog with me, and play with the dog - even gave "kisses" and took a cookie from my mouth. What if everyone thought of pigs as pets?

Editor's Note: Author and Reiki Master, Kathleen Prasad illustrates the many shared benefits of performing reiki on our animal companions.

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: It's obvious in this video how well Rafiki responds to the massage, but what is more interesting is how practical this treatment can be. Giraffes are very serious anesthetic risks, in large part due to their long necks. It has been found that massage performed on giraffes undergoing an anesthetic procedure have improved circulation and better recovery.

Fatty liver is also called hepatic lipisosis. In hepatic lipidosis, something makes your kitty stop eating – from a virus, to vaccination, to stress to an illness...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Fatty liver diagnosis, especially in cats, is a scary one - it may mean weeks to months of assisted feeding, expensive trips to the vet, and sometimes there is no recovery.




Animals & Pets

As a homeopath I am often asked to help treat an ailing animal. Prescribing for an animal is not a lot different from prescribing for humans but being able to have a conversation to understand them is different indeed...


Editor's Note : Robert Field is a regular contributor to ATH. In this piece he writes about his experience treating animals with homeopathy. Read one of his other articles here.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Frequently asked question: Why DO dogs eat grass? It's not necessarily to make themselves sick, might be they need some salad to cool their tummies.


Animals & Pets

It was February, 2003. Katie, a 7 year-old German Shorthair hunting dog had returned home in some apparent discomfort from a long day’s hunting with her owner, Stan. Thinking he could ease her soreness, he gave her some ibuprofen, totally unaware of the fact that the ingredients are toxic to dogs and could lead to kidney failure and death...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: This article provides a number of lessons to pet owners. For one, the use of human medications in our pets can often have unintended and terrible consequences. Secondly, that the damage done by "side-effects" is often seen as irreparable, when in fact there may be answers outside of mainstream medicine.


Animals & Pets

by Ihor Basko, DVM, CVA

Is your food killing you? Is your pet’s food harming his/her health?

These are bold questions for sure, but they are important to consider in this day and age where industrialization and mass consumerism have led to automated processes in the food industry that result in lower quality products and heavily modified produce...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Controversy continues about labelling GMO foods. This argument has focussed on people food - but what about our pets? Dr Basko leads the charge - what's in your pets' food?


Animals & Pets


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Cats and dogs have many interactions. Watch the tables turn on this tough pup!

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...
