Animals & Pets

by Arnold Plotnick, MS, DVM, ACVIM, ABVP

Some cats view a Christmas tree as the world’s greatest scratching post. Set up your tree on a wide, flat, stable base, and consider anchoring it to a window or wall using fishing line. Ornaments should be pet-safe, i.e. made of fabric or wood. Glass ornaments may fall and shatter, cutting an animal's foot. Tinsel, ribbon, or popcorn strands, if swallowed, may cause intestinal obstruction...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Holidays are great times for fun; the many decorations and knick knacks, while beautiful, can make for risky situations. Cats are notorious for mischief. These helpful hints should help keep our cats safe.

Editor's Note: This video provides a thoughtful collection of clips illustrating the vast well of knowledge that is shared amongst the many species of the animal kingdom. Problem-solving skills and communication are often attributed as an indication of human intelligence. Watch as these animals show us that we are more alike than many people think.


Animals & Pets

by John Phillip

Researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have published the result of a study showing that a diet rich in slowly digested carbohydrates, such as leafy green vegetables, legumes and other high-fiber foods, significantly reduces markers of inflammation associated with the onset of chronic disease...


Editor's Note: Everyone is concerned with carbohydrates these days. There are many different diets on the market that cut them out all together. But fiber, which reduces inflammation in the body, is essential in optimal health and certain carbs provide just that. John Phillips discusses how not to “spike the glucose level” with certain carbohydrates obtaining valuable fiber sources. Lowering inflammation markers in the body helps reduce chronic diseases.


Holistic Nutrition

 by Danielle Nierenberg of World Watch Institute’s Nourishing the Planet

Agricultural production is only the first step in moving the world's food from farm to fork, according to Nourishing the Planet, a project of the Worldwatch Institute. The other links in the food chain - harvesting, packaging, storing, transporting, marketing, and selling - ensure that food actually reaches consumers. Inefficiencies in these activities, rather than just low yields or poor farming techniques, are often to blame for food shortages and low prices for growers...


Organic Living


Editor's Note: As I get closer and closer to taking the gluten free plunge I'm rapidly stock piling recipes for when I start craving things like pizza and other foods with wheat.

Healing Recipes

by Kathy Garland

Many people are not aware of the effect that sound has on their dog in their home environment. Although there has been no direct research on noise pollution and dogs, studies with rodents and people suggest it’s possible that it is a contributing factor to a compromised immune system...

Our human lives are full of choices. We often obsess over the ingredients in the lotions we buy and search for the safest cleaning products for our home. Our pets, on the other hand, live a largely choice-less existence. Whether you shine your floors with chemical cleaner or use a non-toxic vinegar and lemon solution is not a choice our cat makes...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Many of us don't think of fleas and other annoying critters in the winter, but they are still out there, hiding. And, those who live in climates where fleas are a problems year-round, they know! Some helpful hints for a more natural approach to flea control.
