Avoid Excessive Vaccinating

Modern Medicine Is Not Always So Miraculous

Our Position On Vaccinations Is "Only When Absolutely Necessary"

Our position on vaccinations is that they are necessary, but also dangerous and not something to be administered lightly.  As a pet owner, you should be aware of the fact that it is possible to over-vaccinate your pet.  In keeping with our holistic health beliefs, we believe that pet owners should vaccinate, but as little as possible - and always within the confines of the law.

Why Do We Live So Unnaturally?

We understand why so many pet owners choose to feed their pets pre-processed dog food.  It's convenient.  It's easy.  It's fast.  A lot of people simply do not have the time to prepare fresh food even for themselves much less for their pets, so they turn to pre-packaged food as an alternative.

Does Your Pet Have An Ear Infection?

Excessive Scratching Might Indicate An Ear Infection

Ouch!

Ear infections can be very painful.  Almost all pets are affected by an ear infection at one time or another during their lifetime.  If your pet is robust enough, they will be able to fight off the infection as their immune system asserts itself. 

But if your pet is unhealthy and has a weak or compromised immune system, they may develop chronic ear infections that they will battle their entire life - until a change occurs.

Exercise is Detox

Exercise Is Always The Right Answer

Pets need more exercise than people!

You need to get moving!  One of the easiest ways to "Detox" your pet is to engage them in regular exercise at the appropriate activity level for their breed and age.  You may also see some benefits too, like improved personal health, an even closer, more play-based relationship and the knowledge that you are a responsible, enlightened pet owner who does everything to make sure their pet is happy...and healthy.
