Homeopathic Remedies for Boarding Kennels and Catteries

With the long weekend fast approaching many of our pets will be going into the kennels or cattery for a little R and R! For some of our pets they love their time away. They get to see familiar staff and other pets and they easily slot into the holiday routine. For others; going into the kennels or cattery, especially for the first time, can be quite traumatic and upsetting. Their whole life has just been turned upside down and they have been thrust into an unknown world. There are new sights and...

Transitioning To Raw Food

A gradual transition to raw food is recommended especially for older pets. To start the transition it is a good idea to make their food 75% current food to 25% new raw food. A sign that your pet is ready to move on to the next stage is that their stools will be solid. Once their stools have been consistent for a few days, increase the % of raw food again by another 25% and so on. Some pets can transition very easily and quickly on to raw food, others; especially older pets can take a bit more ti...

Back to Grass Roots - Our Pet's Diet

Choosing what to feed our dogs and cats has become quite the challenge. There are many books and hundreds of ideas out there about what we should be feeding our pets. So how do you know what is right and what isn't right for your pet? Everyone has their own beliefs about their pet’s diet but one key point that seems to be missing from a lot of the literature is INDIVIDUALITY. Your pet is an individual. What one pet likes another one will not like. Willow hates carrots, my other dogs loved them...

Top 3 Homeopathic Remedies for Teething!

This time can be quite stressful for both the owner and the animal. I can recall going through the teething stage with Willow. In fact I am still traumatised by it as it seemed to go on forever! Depending on the breed teething can take place as early as 5-6 weeks until about 8-9 weeks of age. As chewing can ease the discomfort that is associated with teething, nothing is off limits. People, furniture and pretty much any object that is within reach can be at risk of those sharp little teeth. Out...

Mouth Hygiene - Food for Thought

A lot of animals have terrible mouth hygiene....... but why? Animals move, hunt, and then rest. They are designed to work for their food. They go on a walk or "hunt" before they are fed. This is something that I have always implemented with my dogs, they must earn their food. If the body is not moving, it is not cleansing nor utilising the food's energy. When we constantly feed our animals we are over-feeding a system that is not moving enough. This leads to an overabundance of food which sits ...

Ignatia - Ignited By Love

I immediately think of Romeo and Juliet with this remedy. Those who have loved and lost. Although there are many remedies that can help restore a sense of calmness and well being, Ignatia is considered to be the "grief" remedy. Ignatia is very useful in situations where the animal is suffering from the ill effects of grief, anger, worry or fright. It is also one of the first remedies that I think of in cases of homesickness or when a pet has lost a loved one such as their owner, a litter mate ...

Motion Sickness in Pets

For some animals a ride in the car is the best experience. There is nothing like feeling the wind on your face and blowing through your fur.  Smelling all of those new and marvellous smells and seeing all of those wonderful new sights... it's pure heaven. Unfortunately not all animals experience this joy.  For some it is a nightmare. The motion of the car can cause them to become sick and even the sound of the car can make them anxious and fearful. In dogs, you may ...

My little Pulsatilla

The universe gives you the dog that you NEED not the dog that you want.  Libi was 2 years old when she came to live with Koda and I.  In that short space of time we were her fourth home. She was a sled-dog. Born to run and born to be free.  Her whole face would light up when she was in full flight.  She wasn't a natural leader but she was the cheer-leader and motivator of the team. As Libi got older she became prone to ear infections and the heat aggravated this. &n...
