Jaimie, a well-groomed sable collie, had been an active dog. Now, in her older years, arthritis was definitely affecting her quality of life. Her regular veterinarian had prescribed some pain medication but she continued to be limited by pain and weakness in her limbs...




Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Laser therapy is an often overlooked modality. Not only can it be an excellent first-choice therapy, it can be a wonderful alternative to acupuncture in patients who are extremely needle sensitive.



Animals & Pets

by Theresa Gould

Many people do not realize that there are alternative ways to treat common pet ailments instead of rushing to the vet (no offense DVMs!). Taking care of your pet’s health all goes back to providing a healthy, balanced diet and exercise. Too many products used today are toxic not only to the environment but to your health, not to mention the health of your pet...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Essential oils are powerful medicine. They can be used orally, topically and through aromatherapy to achieve amazing results.

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: We all love our pets, but the guys in this video show that there may be some science to explain that love. Or at least some laughter.


Animals & Pets

by Barbara Janelle MA

The horse stands with his head high and all his muscles tense with fear. The white in the eyes indicates pain somewhere in the body; he is holding his breath. I sidle in towards his shoulder, take the line and ask the horse to lower his head--the first step in establishing a working relationship with the gelding. Then slowly my hands enter and scan his energy field...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Horses are the most responsive creatures out there. When I prepare to make an adjustment, if it’s not “just right” the horse will move to make it right. So it makes good sense horses will respond so positively to therapeutic touch.


Animals & Pets

by Mark T Troxel, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)

While it may seem that pets that can’t walk on their own would be suffering or have a poor quality of life, the opposite is true if they are fitted with a canine mobility cart.  Once they get used to the cart, most dogs get around very well and have a great quality of life...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Special needs pets can be just as important to families as special needs children. Many families work hard with their pet's doctor to rehabilitate their friend; carts can make life a joy for both the patient and the family.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Waldo was an inspiration to this awesome rescue group. What a great play environment. Don't all dogs deserve this?


Animals & Pets

from Houndstooth

The relationship between our teeth & sugar probably began before we could even walk. Pediatricians tell parents not to put their baby to bed with a bottle of sugary juice because it will destroy the child’s teeth...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Oral health is not just a matter of clean teeth - it actually starts with what we feed our pets. Just like us, the better we eat, the better our teeth.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The best teacher is a teacher who loves the students. Dogs love unconditionally. Yori, a service dog to autistic students, helps his mom teach her students and show the children love – helping them learn.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Love a hot, bubbly bath! But, this bunny really shows us how to do it!


Animals & Pets

by Coleen Ellis

As a grieving pet parent, the grief journey is one that requires work,… “he who mourns, mends.” This work needs to come in the form of doing active mourning...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Like most people, I don't enjoy reliving pain. However, Coleen reminds us to experience the pain once so we can properly mourn the loss of our pets. See Part 1.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: This dog is so cute - poor thing really wants that treat! Something to realize: if your dog used to catch treats and can't anymore - something is wrong. It may be an early sign of blindness. Enjoy this puppy, but do keep it a the back of your mind - just a thought of warning.

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...
