Animal Naturopathy


My friend, Thomas Sandberg, is going above and beyond to do a few things to help dogs (and cats) live and BE well. First he started the longest running, albeit anedotal (which I LOVE) study on raw feeding, Long Living Pets Research Study – there are actually THREE studies ongoing which you’ll find when you go to the site. Now he is currently raising funds for his Long Living Pets Research, Rescue and Rehab Center. His...
