The Flu Blues

We’ve already felt the shift in temperature. The leaves are falling and the seasons are changing. This also means that as it gets colder, more illnesses seem to pop up. One especially–the Flu.  Keeping your dog safe is a huge priority, but “safe” can look different to a variety of people. So what exactly are […]

Is it Real Milk?

Grocery shopping is a task in itself, let alone for the specific brand you choose from the items you have on your list. As you ponder the aisles you typically have two options, organic, or regular. The price is a little bit more for organic, but it’s supposed to be of better quality and taste […]

Pet Food “Ingredients.”

When you take a walk down the pet food isle, there’s SO much to choose from. Many brands have claims all over the front and it can get so confusing as to what you should buy.  When you do finally decide what you think is best for a pet food, you do it based on […]

When we are told what is normal, it is common to go with the flow and not question it. […]

Why is Your Pet so Sick?

Skip the diagnosis.  If you take your pet into the Vet, they will typically run a bunch of tests trying to figure out what is wrong.  A common test is to figure out what allergies your pet might have.  You might be told that these allergens are the cause for why your pet is having […]

Predisposed Cancer?

We’ve discussed before the potential side effects of a common drug known as Apoquel.  It seems that a common side effect now is cancer.   Cancer? Seriously? Apoquel works by suppressing your pet’s immune system.  When your dog is having inflammation (itchy skin, etc.), immuno-suppressant drugs like Apoquel work to turn off that inflammation.  The […]

Tossing the Drugs

It’s so common to walk in to a Doctor with a problem, and come out with a prescription.  It’s like second nature for that to be the trick to fixing whatever is wrong. It’s an instant fix, and people notice results fairly quick.  When you take your pet into the Vet, you can walk out […]

Is Your Dog Really Due for Shots?

It never fails.  In some way, shape, or form you’ll get a message saying that your pet is due for their shots.  In conventional medicine, it is common to get these reminders whenever Vets deem it necessary for more shots for your pet.  The reminders say, “Make an Appointment Today!”  Without thinking you might schedule […]
