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).

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!

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: It makes interesting viewing to combine a squirrel who is doing its natural behavior with a dog who is supressing his natural behavior: squirrel hides nut, dog allows it to happen.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Sit, stay, maybe roll over. Really? My dogs have sit accomplished. But, play dead? This dog is an amazing actress, many humans can't even do it this well!!

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: Bottle-fed baby kitties are often sole kittens. Thus they don't have much snuggle time with litter mates. Stuffed animals can replace the need to snuggle. This kitty never stops the snuggle-fest.

 

Animals & Pets


by Bret Glass, MA

Sometimes I just need a one day vacation. A moment to catch my breath, to be responsible only for me, to experience the freedom of being rather than doing. Don’t get me wrong…

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Sleeping in. What is that? A thing of childhood? The lost art of ignoring canine and feline pleas to get up and go out. While sleeping in is tough, going to bed early can be a viable alternative.

Cat got your hand? Careful—cat bites aren’t as harmless as some people think. In fact, according to a recent study...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: How bad can a cat bite be? Bad! I've seen blood infections and the need for intravenous antibiotics. Here's some information why.

 

Animals & Pets

In the dog world, flexibility training is often overlooked. Flexibility allows for better range of motion which can aid in reducing the risk of injury and improve overall performance. Stretching your dog’s muscles also improves circulation of water and nutrients throughout the body and promotes relaxation. In addition, stretching is an integral part of muscle growth...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: We've all learned since we were kids that stretching and exercise go together. Flexibility improves strength, allowing the muscles more length over which to contract. The same is true of the canine athlete.

Looking into those adorable puppy eyes makes it easy to fall fast and hard for the dog of your dreams. Don’t let that love at first sight fool you into forgetting to plan...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Pet parents understand the true value of their pets (and the cost!). For one who may be on the pet fence, this infographic sums it all up.

My name is Mary Oquendo and I am half of Hands And Paws-Reiki For All. One of the most common questions I am asked is, “How did such a nice girl like you become involved with all that hoodoo stuff.”...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There is a reason each one of us explores alternatives - from an illness to a sudden, life-changing event. Here's one groomer's path to alternative therapies for pets.

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...
