Hello,  thank you for subscribing to the Whole Dog News - Newsletter.

I believe in looking at the health care and relationships with our dogs from the dog’s perspective. I believe the dog should honored and cared for as the species he is.  I am here for the dogs.  :-)

The truly holistic or naturopathic approach looks at and works with “the whole animal”, in a natural way that ignites the body’s internal healing force and stimulates its natural abilities to heal itself. To just eliminate the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the cause or dis-ease that produced that symptom or symptoms in the first place.

I am not a veterinarian but a teacher. I do not heal disease, but rather, offer information and consultations that can help you make educated health decisions for your own dogs to bring their bodies into balance and a healthier state.

Dr. Jeannie Thomason Animal Naturopath

Most Arthritic Dogs Do Very Well On Rimadyl, Except Ones That Die

Most Arthritic Dogs Do Very Well On Rimadyl, Except Ones That Die

Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

You might call it a made-for-TV drug. Approved for human use in the U.S. but not marketed that way, an arthritis medicine called Rimadyl languished for nearly 10 years in developmental limbo, then emerged in a surprising new form: Instead of a human drug, it was now a drug for arthritic dogs. And it became a hit.

With the aid of slick commercials featuring once-lame dogs bounding happily about, Rimadyl changed the way veterinarians treated dogs. "Clients would walk in and say, 'What about this Rimadyl?' " says George Siemering, who practices in Springfield, Va.

Essential Oils For Inflammation

Essential Oils For Inflammation

What is Inflammation? What creates it in the body?

Inflammation is actually part of the body’s defense system. It is an immune response to rid the body of harmful stimuli so the body can begin the healing process.

The body increases blood to the injured tissues or affected area for healing. This is why you often see swelling, redness or feel pain and heat in the affected area. This is called acute inflammation.

Inflammation becomes chronic inflammation when the body does not turn off and the immune system's response actually begins to damage the body. This chronic inflammation can often lead to more progressive conditions such as arthritis and even heart disease.

How do Essential Oils reduce and prevent Inflammation?

Essential oils contain many different natural chemical constituents that are documented to help both the physical and emotional body. Essential oils easily penetrate the skin and can be carried throughout the blood and tissues within minutes.

Book - Essential Oils in Animal Care - A Naturopathic Approach 

Our goal in collaborating in writing this book was to help everyone understand the role of essential oils in animal care in conjunction with a whole health approach that must be the foundation for healthy, thriving life for all animals.

This book introduces a dynamic way of using therapeutic essential oils with animals (cats, dogs, horses and birds).

We believe it is time for even the so-called “alternative health” thinkers to learn how to shift attention from the ‘what‘ of the experience to the experience itself, allowing the animal to participate in his/her own healing process as nature intended.

The focus of this book is to take away the fear of using essential oils with animals while empowering the pet owner to realize the importance of a true naturopathic approach to allow optimal health in the companion animals.

Essential Oils in Animal Care: A Naturopathic Approach is available on Amazon HERE
