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 Mary Oquendo

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.

 

Animals & Pets


by Elyse Horvath

Dogs, like people, are intricate beings. Organs, bones, muscles, and fluids, and all of this housed and protected by the largest organ of the body: the skin. Whether thick or thin, tough or delicate, skin is alive with its own ecosystem, needing a balance of strength and elasticity, of moisture and amino acids, a certain spongy give that can produce goose bumps when caressed, or give cushion to a fall...

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: What function do paw pads serve? They’re not just for walking/running – and, even the pad way up high on their wrist serves a purpose. Dogs’ pads need care and protection just as the rest of their body does.

 

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: 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: Spring in the air means babies in the trees, and on the ground when they fall out, or get pushed out, of the nest. Dr Karen Becker shares her experience with baby bird foundlings.

 

Animals & Pets


by Alissa Wolf

This psychic doesn’t wear a turban and gaze into a crystal ball, or predict the meeting of tall, dark, handsome men.

This rather angelic-looking strawberry blonde prefers business suits, and her clients usually have four legs and a tail...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There are many paths to animal communication, just as there are many paths to each of our career choices. When we get where we are meant to be, the match is clear to all those around us. The beauty of Emerald DuCoeur's match as an animal communicator is pet parents understand their pet and work for a better life, or afterlife, together.

 

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.

 

 

Animals & Pets


by Bruce Wagman

I have had dogs on my mind lately. They are the main players in many of my (and many animal lawyers’) cases, and they are the species I get the most calls about. This week I had a call about a sheep owner shooting a roaming dog, with the caller wondering about the implication of the California statute that allows a livestock owner to shoot any dog on his land, even if the dog is nowhere near livestock...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Legal concerns about pets are usually the last thing pet owners think about. But when “the law” descends, all of a sudden pet owners “know.” The law does not consider feelings and emotions; unfortunately, it is part of our everyday.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Mellow cats and vacuums - we love watching the anomaly. This compilation has some great footage of mellow cats.

 

Animals & Pets


by Angie Bailey

Have you ever had that “stuck” feeling? Like you’re just not quite sure how to move forward and you’re a little afraid to move at all, for fear you’ll make the “wrong” choice? I know there have been times when I’ve found myself in that position and, honestly, at those times I felt paralyzed...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: I love a lesson from my pets. Cats have their own special lessons to teach us. One is: less is more - don't hold tight. Here's a lesson about resourcefulness.

 

Animals & Pets


by Dr. Tim Hunt

Children can learn so many valuable lessons by caring for a pet. Having pets at a young age instills kids with a sense of confidence that they can take care of an animal and help it to live a thriving life.

 

A pet gives a kid a way to share their feelings with another living creature that will never respond in a judgmental or bullying way. Animals are unbiased companions, just what many kids need...

Winter isn’t the only time of year we have to worry about “catching” a cold, but it is the primary time for it. We’re spending more time in closed quarters, with windows and doors shut tight and no way to escape the germs. It is only a matter of time before someone in the house becomes sick. It could be you, but did you know that it could also be your dog that comes down with this common respiratory infection?

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...
