Animals & Pets

by Michel Selmer, DVM, TCMVP

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.

In this material, I am not going to try to pursue shamanism as it relates to personal totems, power animals, or to any of the more exotic practices that we might read about in books like those of Carlos Castaneda, and other worthy writers, although these are, of course, very legitimate int...erests. I am not going to skin animals, dig (or take) herbs, draw magic circles, or perform any of the many rituals that you might find in a book on traditional shamanism.

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.



Animals & Pets

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?

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Not only do I think this is an amazing theme song for human daily life, I believe dogs and cats live the Happy Song from day to day.
