Using Essential Oils for Strained Puppy’s Leg

Here’s a video I recorded back in 2012 and finally uploaded this week on how I helped my Great Dane puppy, Meshach, heal from a sprained foreleg using YL: What I didn’t explain in the video is how exactly I used the oils on him. I do share what oils I used and also what supplement. I used a couple of drops of each oil one at a time from the raindrop technique kit and layered it on his leg – massaging each oil in. And then I added in two additional oils – lemongrass and copaiba. I explain why in the video. Then I did a...

Fulvic – Humic Acid for Immune Support in Our Pets

Just a couple of years ago I began doing some research into a supplement I had little knowledge of but was intrigued because of my Facebook friend, Nikki Brown’s, Canine Angel newsletters mentioning this supplement. I knew she was/is a raw feeder so I was very intrigued as I read her articles on why even our raw fed pets could utilize this type of supplementation. Even though I was aware of the soil depletion due to monoculture farming as well as using a very toxic approach to pests and weeds, I wasn’t aware we had a simple...

Aromatherapy for Reverse Sneezing in Dogs

Aromatherapy for Reverse Sneezing in Dogs

Have you ever heard that funny sort of snorting sound from your dog like he is snuffling up air in short bursts; a backward inhale? Well it could be reverse sneezing. Many of you have probably rushed to your veterinarian to find out what in the heck is wrong with your dog – and if you’ve not ever experienced it before it’s not a bad idea to get your dog checked out. It could be a collapsing trachea, a sign of vaccinosis, even post-operative problems from anesthesia (although most veterinarians will most likely not connect...

How Dogs Enrich Our Lives

There are SO many ways dogs can and do benefit us so I wanted to share several articles with you on what science has discovered in some of those ways, besides the obvious one of companionship although companionship would be THE most beneficial of course! But they help our health as well. In addition, there is information on how dogs process things through their brains and mouths that might shed some light on some of their behavior for you. Dogs and Dander This is a very interesting article on dogs and how they help our children with colds and...

Raindrop Essential Oils in a Bottle

Raindrop Essential Oils in a Bottle

The following is a testimonial from my team member, Randi Shoshara, YL ID# 961705 who gave me permission to share. She is a holistic dog groomer: “So here is that testimony I was talking about. It was powerful. I made the raindrop in a bottle, kept it with me for me, then ended up at a friend’s house and she had water in the knee. It was triple the size of her other knee. She was telling me how uncomfortable she was for weeks. She is also a waitress on her feet all day much like me for dog grooming. I don’t normally do this...

There is nothing new about raw food

There is nothing new about raw food

It’s funny how all of a sudden many mainstream news sites are sharing the trend toward raw feeding of pets – dogs & cats that is. BUT they always have to show how many veterinarians don’t agree or how pets could get sick with salmonella or e coli, or it may be imbalanced, blah, blah, blah. Animals have ALWAYS eaten raw food! Okay so let’s examine some facts: 1. Dogs ARE carnivores. Nothing in their DNA or anatomy has changed other than our outward appearance…contrary to much popular myth floating around in...

Anyone Can Claim Their Oils to Be “Therapeutic Grade” . . .But Only Young Living Can Claim “Young Living Therapeutic Grade™”

Anyone Can Claim Their Oils to Be “Therapeutic Grade” . . .But Only Young Living Can Claim “Young Living Therapeutic Grade™”

by David Stewart, PhD The term, “Therapeutic Grade,” applied to essential oils was originally coined and defined by Gary Young and Young Living. Years ago some aromatherapists and competing companies criticized Young Living for using this term saying, “There is no such term.” They were right in that no government or regulatory agency had defined the term, but Gary and Young Living did define it. You can use any word or term you like so long as you define what you mean by it. You will find “Therapeutic...

Dogs Need Detoxification Also

Written on March 17, 2013 for Bark N Blog then moved to this site on this date. Once upon a time in an earlier time in the USA, every spring was not just a time to do some deep cleaning, but to also deep clean the body of toxins accumulated during the long winter – which didn’t include fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. Dogs and people both need detoxification several times per year! Our bodies and that of our dogs have not evolved contrary to popular scientific myth. They are adapting yes but that doesn’t mean the former...

Seven Months Raw Fed Schatzie

Posted by on Jan 10, 2014 in Animal Naturopathy, Aromatherapy & Essential Oils for Animals, Feature, Raw Feeding | 0 comments

Seven Months Raw Fed Schatzie

Seems like I often focus on my little American Bully, King, more than my American Dingo (aka Carolina Dog mix) Schatzie. King has been with us for nine months now and Schatzie seven months. In that seven months we have of course raw fed Schatzie. She took to it like the carnivore she is as did King. I want to share before and after photos as well as differences in her health since being switched to raw. King is just the cutest, high energy, intense little boy while Schatzie is calm, gentle, and shy – such polar opposites and yet they...

Vaccines: One Is Too Many

Vaccines: One Is Too Many

Recently a new vaccine protocol appeared on the horizon from a well known veterinarian and vaccine researcher. Most in natural animal health believe that the only good vaccine is the one not given (as I believe based on reason, truth and facts). However, many of those same people will support these minimum vaccine protocols because as they have oft stated “a limited or minimal vaccine protocol is a step in the right direction” because people are supposedly too indoctrinated to hear the blatant truth and too afraid to not vaccinate...
