Experimentation or Healthcare?

For the longest time people have placed their trust in the whole medical machine (yes I said machine as in Matrix) thinking they were working towards the “protection and safety” (nice propaganda words) of our pets so they could have long and healthy lives. The truth is quite distant from what people have believed. Sadly, from years of propaganda supporting the lie, people have come to believe that this grand experimentation IS healthcare. We (as in animal naturopaths and other natural animal health practitioners – natural...

Spending on pets is up, but are they healthier as a result?

Spending on pets is up, but are they healthier as a result?

On the surface this might show more concern and care for pets, and we’re certain that pet owners feel they are spending more because they believe they care more for their pets than previous generations may have. However, just because more money is being spent does not necessarily equate to better health or quality of life for pets. THE PROBLEM Here is a news item from 2014 on this topic – and not much has changed in fact it’s only gotten worse! http://news.medill.northwestern.edu/chicago/news.aspx?id=177553 Much of the extra...

The Why Not the What

Posted by on 11:27 am in Animal Naturopathy, Dr. Kim's Views, Storytelling, The DOGgone Truth | Comments Off on The Why Not the What

The Why Not the What

This is the presentation by Simon Sinek that this post is based upon – I watched it a couple of years ago for the first time and have since watched it a few more times. It bears repeating to remind us of our WHY: It made me really think about what moves me to continue in my work as an animal naturopath. More importantly it pushes me back to WHY I started in the first place. Let me take you back with me in a shortened version. 🐕 A dog named Shadow, we renamed Shadrach came into our lives right after the tragic loss of one of my cousins....

The Digging Garden

The Digging Garden

We all know it’s in a dog’s nature to DIG right? At least if we don’t we ought to KNOW that…it’s sort of a duh ya know! What I have always done – well after Shadrach came along that is lol – is have a place in my yard where they CAN dig. At my former home I called it the Digging Garden lol. To help my dogs learn they can dig there but not dig up the grass is I just stop them in the act. Then I take this dog over to the place where they CAN dig and start digging using their paws – seriously I...

Those DOGgone Oily Dogs and Flies

Those DOGgone Oily Dogs and Flies

Recently on Facebook and Instagram I posted a different kind of photo of me and my dogs during our weekly aroma massage. It got attention and in fact a couple of people asked me if I’d be willing to let them be a “flies” (as in on the wall lol) of my weekly massage. Here is what I wrote that got people to ask me this (the photo is the one with this post): Every week my dogs receive an aroma massage. Every week is unique because I never know what positions they’ll take or how they’ll respond to me due to my own attitude or...

Integrative Medicine – What Does It Mean?

Integrative Medicine – What Does It Mean?

The following article, Pet Owners Turning to Acupuncture for Their Furry Friends, shines a spotlight on how pet owners are seeking alternative care for their pets. In the USA only veterinarians are allowed to perform acupuncture as it is considered a form of “invasive surgery“- even though it isn’t surgery but rather a method to open the body’s energy meridians much as acupressure does sans needles. Many veterinarians who tout themselves as integrative or holistic veterinarians are merely adding in natural modalities...

Animals Can Self-Medicate

Posted by on 3:16 pm in Animal Naturopathy, Dangerous Drugs - Toxic Chemicals, Dog Behavior and Nature, Dog Health - Immune System, Dr. Kim's Views, Feature, Laws of Health, Raw Feeding, The DOGgone Truth | Comments Off on Animals Can Self-Medicate

Animals Can Self-Medicate

When allowed access to their natural environments, animals can self-medicate even if that can’t be proven scientifically since it is subjective – at least according to science it is anyway. To sidetrack a bit it always amazes me how humans feel the need to have to “prove” the intelligence and cognition of animals. It is our arrogance thinking that we are the only intelligent, cognitive creatures on the planet that has gotten us into all of this trouble in the first place…believing or thinking we can somehow improve upon nature’s intelligent...

Who Cares?

Who Cares?

I haven’t shared one of our gorgeous sunrises in a while so here a set from October 2 and October 13. These sunrises wowed me in the real! ☀️☀️☀️. I take these photos while we (my husband, me and our two dogs) are out for our morning walk/exercise in the fresh air honoring at least two of the eight laws of health every day. We get sunshine (another law of health) full on also in the summer at the same time.  I wanted to share them with you because this is such a beautiful time of day and we get to just marvel at the Master Artist’s...

When Our Dogs Leave

Posted by on 10:10 am in DOGgone Truth, Faith-Based, Feature, Human-Dog bond, Pet Loss | Comments Off on When Our Dogs Leave

When Our Dogs Leave

These are three podcasts I did over the years, the last one most recently when my closet friend, Bre Altherr lost her primary Teacher/Heart Dog, Merlin two weeks ago. Here is an edited version of what I wrote to her just this week: We miss so many things when they’re gone. Then eventually all you can remember are all those good, funny, loving times and be grateful for the time you had even as you still miss their physical presence. So you do things like create classes written in first dog by one of them. Or you write their stories that...
