PROMOTE HEALTH RATHER THAN TREAT DISEASE

By Dr. Kim Bloomer & Dr. Jeannie Thomason, co-founders of American Council of Animal Naturopathy “The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds.” ~Albert Schweitzer As animal naturopaths, we know and teach that no matter what the dis-ease of the animal’s body (or mind), no matter what “label” (aka diagnosis) a veterinarian might put on it, that focusing on the symptoms as anything more than a road map to guide us will NEVER facilitate healing or wellness in our...

6 Secrets the Pet Food Industry doesn’t want you to know

By Kristin Clark, CSAN (Certified Small Animal Naturopath & Carnivore Nutrition Coach) Pet food companies specialize in making their particular product sound like it’s the answer to keeping your pet healthy, happy, and thriving.

Herb Sense

by Anthea Appel, CAN  certified graduate/practitioner of small animal naturopathy Before I knew any better I used to buy my herbs at my local health food store, or supermarket, or at the Farmer’s Market, or even worse, in those little capsules sold at my local pharmacy.

Animal Chiropractic Can Help Keep Pets Healthy and Happy

By: Dr. Erin O’Connor Certified A.C.A.N. Practitioner Animal chiropractic is a gentle, yet highly effective treatment modality. It allows an animal to utilize their very own healing capabilities by restoring normal motion and position of spinal and/or extremity joints.
