Grieving

Grieving is something we all do.  Whether it is from the loss of our first Teddy Bear, our loving grandparent or parent, or our beloved pet, at some time in our lives, we will experience grief.  Grief has been a problem for longer than we can imagine.   Professional therapists now focus on grief counseling as


Karma and Your Pet’s Health

You reap what you sow.  What goes around comes around.  You get what you deserve.  These are all statements that reflect the meaning of karma.  Karma, in a nutshell, means that whatever you put out in your world, will come back to you.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t describe how that will show up.  Most of us


The Mirroring Effect

The special relationship we have with our pets goes way beyond what most of us believe.  They offer us so much and in so many ways.  They give us unconditional love and the ability to love them back in the same way.  They provide healing energy that benefits our health and they mirror us so

Back To The Basics

I did a phone consultation with a lady the other day who has a dog with cancer.  Following her vet’s recommendation, she took her dog to the veterinary college to work with their oncologist.  The oncologist told her that if she were to have any hope of extending her dog’s life expectancy beyond a couple


All You Need Is Love

I am a fan of Dr. Karen Becker, the veterinarian who works with Mercola.  She is a great veterinarian and a true advocate for alternative and natural methods for pet health care.  I also sympathize with her duties of having to supply tons of information for her readers.  I know, before I became a vet,


Seizures; A Symptom, Not A Disease

I can’t imagine anything more frightening for a pet caretaker than to witness their beloved pet having a seizure for the first time.  Seizures appear so violently.  They come on without warning and cause uncontrollable thrashing of the body as we sit by helplessly, unable to do anything about it.
