Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays!

Thank you all for your encouragement and support this year. 

It has been a crazy busy year for me but I have been so blessed in the process.

Along with my best friend and colleague, Dr. Kim Bloomer, we developed an online, on demand- Total Wellness For Pets Program for dog and cat owners that were desiring the knowledge to be able to give their pets a naturally healthy, holistic life.  Many of you were asking what you could replace the toxic pesticides, medications, vaccinations and processed pet foods with. And how to switch your pets to a raw diet as well as how to avoid the need for a veterinarian unless an emergency.  The Total Wellness For Pet Program is the answer to all your questions and maybe even some you had not thought to ask yet.   You can go through the program at your own pace - there are no deadlines and the price is about the same as one office call and exam with a veterinarian!

Toxin Free Living For Pets - Thieves Household Cleaner

Toxin Free Living For Pets - Thieves Household Cleaner

As my regular readers know, I am not only an animal naturopath but I am also a natural rearing dog breeder and have been for 27 years now. I came about raising my dogs naturally - gradually as most people do.  I was pretty well versed in natural human health and was raising my son as naturally and holistically.  I had been feeding a raw diet for a few years at the time and only using borax and baking soda in my laundry however,  I was still using toxic cleaning chemicals such as diluted bleach or veterinary disinfectants (I was working as a veterinary technician at that time so was able to purchase them at cost) to clean the dog crates, bedding and all the floors.  Of course,  I always made sure that my husband, son, African Grey Parrot and the dogs were all out of doors and all the windows were open while doing my cleaning which made me feel somewhat better about using these products with toxic fumes. However, what took a couple of years to sink in, was that it was not just inhaling the fumes that were harmful but actually our walking barefoot on the floors or the dogs sleeping on bedding or in crates that had been cleaned with these chemicals - our feet, our skin and the pads on the dog's paws and their skin were absorbing those toxins!

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
