What does the name “Kalahari Resorts” conjure up for you? Perhaps an African adventure, given that the Kalahari desert is a dry, sandy savannah in Southern Africa? In parts of the U.S., the name refers to a popular resort chain with destinations in Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Oddly, the Kalahari Resort in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains is far from a sandy desert; instead, visitors walk into a 220,000 square foot waterpark — the largest waterpark in the U.S.

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Animal abuse comes in many forms - living an unnatural life is definitely one form! Great success here in education and retraining to save many lives.

 

 

Animals & Pets


by Jennifer Summerfield, DVM, CPDT-KA

“Hello!” The voice on the line is earnest and cheerful.  “I’m calling to sign my dog up for obedience class, please.” Of course, I say.  We have new class sessions starting every few weeks, and we’d be happy to help her sign up.  I ask for a bit more information about her dog, and what skills she’s hoping to work on in class. “Well, he’s a nice dog.  I mean, he’s great with the family.  But whenever strangers come around, he just goes crazy!

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Obedience classes teach great life skills and help dogs become part of the family. However, there are times when an obedience class will not solve a behavior issue; this is when other types of training are needed.

As you know, I love to be part of a family’s decision and the search for a new dog. In my book, I even recommend you visit your vet before getting a new pup. But, as I speak with my clients — many of whom have older or “senior” pets — many are asking that question, “Is it the right time for a second dog?” I don’t know that there’s one correct answer to this questions, I wanted to share this with you, exactly as it was shared with me: A note from a virtual client.

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: In some families, one dog (or cat) will always be the perfect number. In other families, multiple pets are a great thing. When one pet passes away, it leaves an emptiness; when to fill the emptiness is specific to each family. Here are some tips to consider.

Many pet owners remain unaware of the power of acupuncture therapy. Some might have heard of acupuncture and suppose it is only useful in the rehabilitation of paralyzed animals that have undergone surgery or arthritic animals. I am hoping that the story of a young Miniature pinscher mix puppy named Baby Girl can convince many skeptics of the amazing healing ability of this ancient modality.  

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Acupuncture is an amazing tool to help the body heal, young animals tend to heal faster. Here's a great story of hope.

I hear this a lot from my clients. Because when our dogs don’t sleep, we don’t sleep. They can keep us awake with loud scratching, pacing, whining or labored breathing. We either lie awake fuming — don’t they know it’s time to sleep? — or worrying — does this behavior warrant a trip to the veterinarian? Can it wait until morning? Or should we go right now?

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Except for puppyhood, not sleeping at night can be a sign that something is wrong. Other reasons: bladder infection, Yin Deficiency in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, and even sleep apnea. Seek holistic help for many of these conditions.

The attractions of the biggest creatures in the world are well-known, whether it’s Tyrannosaurus Rex or a Whale Shark. But what about the tiniest creatures? Here are five of my favorites:

I know that this topic isn’t typically found on a veterinarian’s website, but who you choose as a veterinarian will play a large role in your pet’s medical care. So, how do you choose the ABSOLUTE BEST veterinarian for you?

 

 

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Whatever the reason for needing a new veterinarian (moved, first pet, prior vet retired, etc), it can be daunting to find a new one. From asking friends with pets to online reviews (all of which can be inaccurate), here are some pointers to finding a vet who works with your style of healthcare.

Lets start with why its important to cut dog nails.

1. They can snag on carpet and other surfaces. The nail may rip off and cause pain and discomfort for your dog.

2. Nails that are too long can cause undue stress on their skeletal structure.

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: For some, this is easy - for others - WOW! Dogs can be wiggly and not like to have their feet touched. Here are tips for proper nail trimming execution.

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?

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.

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...
