Here we go again!

Pet Food Recalls Continue!

It was on March 15, 2007, when the FDA first announced that they had learned that certain pet foods were sickening and killing cats and dogs. Thy found contaminants in the vegetable proteins imported into the United States from China and used as ingredients in pet food.

A portion of the tainted pet food had been used to produce farm animal feed and farmed fish feed. Both the FDA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture discovered that some of the animals that ate the tainted feed had been processed into either human food or pet food.

Focusing on Wellness

By Dr. Kim Bloomer, co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy

If you look at healthcare today, it’s all about disease. It’s not about understanding wellness at all.” ~Leroy Hood

In a recent short article I wrote I was focusing on the difference of the common “health” mindset in our country (possibly the world at this point). I put quotation marks around the word “health” because we have somehow gotten it all skewed to be synonymous with the word “disease” rather than wellness.

Yes!  Our emotions most definitely affect the health of our companion animals.

We know that human medicine has recognized the correlation between emotional disturbances and physical health for many years now. It is almost common knowledge that prolonged stress directly affects the immune system.  In time it will result in a number of physical dis-eases such as digestive issues, heart problems and cancer.

By Dr. Kim Bloomer, co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy

Trust. We all want it. We all desire to be trustworthy. It’s not by accident this is probably the most critical part of all the laws of health. All the previous components of wellness: nutrition, exercise, pure water, sunshine, moderation, fresh air, and rest hinge upon this one thing: trust. ALL of the components of maintaining and promoting health build upon and depend upon all the others and that requires trusting them regardless of what things appear to be like on the surface.

In my previous post on water I stated that there are two things we can only live for a very short time without and water is one of them. The second thing is air – and we can only live at the most a few MINUTES without that! AND just like water, not all air these days is created equal – wait what? Yes, thanks to the added chemicals being put into it – yes you hear me correctly.

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason VND, co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy

Moderation – The Key to Health and Longevity

“Everything in moderation.” Nothing holds more truth than this ancient phrase which reminds us to calm exaggerative tendencies, to not go to extremes in anything.

There are many actions we can take to promote great health in both our own lives as well as our companion animals.We often tend to overlook some of the simplest and most obvious though.

Sharing Holiday Meals With Our Pets

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason, co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy

Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations are holidays meant for gathering around the dinner table with family and friends to share in your thanks for all that you have. For most pet owners, the dog and cat are valued members of the family and saying ‘no’ to their pleading eyes may be something you find hard to resist. We may even be tempted to share the family feast with our dogs in an offering of thanks and love. However …

Earthing For Pets

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason, Vice President and co-founder of The American Council of Animal Naturopathy.

Just like us, our pets are bioelectrical beings whose bodies function electrically.

The Earth is an electrical planet, vibrating with healthy frequencies and a slight negative surface charge required for a healthy immune system. The word “negative” in this context means an abundance of electrons that can move quickly and reduce charge.
