Nutrition is the base upon which good health is built. If the diet isn't right, nothing you do is going to result in optimal health and vitality. Dogs are facultative carnivores, which means they need real meat, organ and bone in their diets along with some roughage/vegetable matter to keep the bugs in the gut happy. I have been feeding raw since before the turn of this century, back when it wasn't cool. I have raised and fed 20+ puppies and adults myself on a species appropiate raw diet as well as helped countless others make the switch and customize their plan for their own dogs. My experience and credentials range from intense self study, certification classes, master classes with true masters, University programs and good old fashioned personal experience. I firmly believe that proper diet can fix most any issue, and without it nothing will be fixed.
The REAL safe and effective! I do not, and have not, believed in Western pharmaceutical based heroic medicine in many years. I have seen the devastation and corruption deployed in this model and I refuse to entertain any of it's false paradigms. Homeopathy, on the other hand has been tried, tested and proven for over 200 years to be legitimately VERY safe and VERY effective. There will be instances where a proper diet is not quite able to overcome the past damage to a dog's system done by the pharmaceutical system and extensive toxic exposure that is often unavoidable in today's world. Homeopathy is a powerful modality that works WITH the body to help it overcome acute and chronic conditions. It does not work by manipulating or blocking normal and necessary body functions, but with the body's vital force to bring balance and homeostasis back to the entire system. My experience here is based again in home study, acute animal certifications, and I am a graduate of 'The Academy of Practical Homeopathy' and 'The Academy of Practical Homeopthy Mastery'.
Traditional Chinese Medicine was my first endeavor into 'alternative' health systems. This philosophy is thousands of years old and still just as powerful and effective as ever. Energy flow in the body is essential for organ systems to function properly and support a happy, healthy vital dog. One of the most important aspects of TCM is food therapy. Which as you know by now, is very high on my list as well. Acupressure (or acupuncture) is also a prominent component in TCM. It is a very powerful modality that can instantly stop colic in a horse (I've done it) or diarrhea in a dog (I've done it) and offers fast relief for pain and anxiety along with many other issues. I am a graduate of Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage in both Acupressure and Massage for large and small animals. Obviously this is an in person/hands on service.
