Caring for a critically ill or dying pet can be a bit scary and we often ask our families to take on a nursing role. This handout is a very helpful way to learn how to monitor your pet's status. Thank you PetHospice.com!

At PetHospice.com, one of our goals is to create resources that can help pet parents better care for their pets. For pets with disease such as a splenic tumor, it is important to monitor heart rate, respiratory rate, respiratory effort and gum color. Changes in these parameters can reflect a decline in your pet's condition. Here's a handout that shows how:

We are often asked how long to expect before our patients are healed from an injury. This is a great quick resource to check out!

https://www.facebook.com/rehabvets/photos/a.10150131943040359/10157099248205359/?type=3&theater

We love this helpful and handy chart from AARV member clinic River Canine Rehabilitation out of Missouri where AARV member Kara Amstutz, DVM, CCRT, CVPP practices. Any way in which owners can understand the different types of tissue injuries that require different average healing times helps everyone on an animals rehabilitation journey! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ

Grieving the people weโ€™ve loved and lost

This article is a beautiful exploration of grieving all those who have gone on before us. Animal or human, loss is loss and we all grieve in our own way. We are here to support you if you need back up at all!

Let's visit with Yarrow on this week's herb walk Tuesday! I have a little one in my garden that is trying to survive. Such a beautiful and useful plant!

Yarrow (Achellia millefolium).
This lovely perennial weed is grown in many herb gardens for it has a multitude of uses. Cut the flowering tops (use only white-flowering yarrow) and use your alcohol to make a strongly-scented tincture that you can take internally to prevent colds and the flu. (A dose is 10-20 drops, or up to 1 ml).
I carry a little spray bottle of yarrow tincture with me when I'm outside and wet my skin every hour or so. A study showed Yarrow tincture to be more effective than DEET at repelling ticks, mosquitoes, and sand flies.
You can also make a healing ointment with yarrow flower tops and your oil or fat. Yarrow oil is antibacterial, pain-relieving, and incredibly helpful in healing all types of wounds.

Day 4: Ways to counter anxiety and stress

Breathe Deeply
Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth.
โ€œDeep breathing counters the effects of stress by slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure,โ€ psychologist Judith Tutin, PhD, says. She's a certified life coach in Rome, GA.

This is one I was using earlier in the year, when things were getting on top of me. In fact, it was my 10 year old son who calmly told me to โ€œbreathe in for 4, breathe out....โ€ when I had a mini meltdown!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Susun Weed

Susun Weed

One of the most cherished of the fertility-increasing plants is red clover (Trifolium pratense). Common in fields and along roadsides, it has bright pink (not really red) blossoms from mid-summer into the chilly days of fall. A favorite flower of the honeybees, the tops (blossoms and appending leaves) are harvested on bright sunny days and eaten as is, or dried for medicinal use. The raw blossoms are delicious in salads and nutritious when cooked with grains such as rice or millet.

To make a fertility-enhancing infusion, I take one ounce by weight of the dried blossoms (fresh won't work for this application) and put them in a quart size canning jar. I fill the jar with boiling water, screw on a tight lid, and let it steep at room temperature overnight (or for at least four hours). Dozens of women have told me that they had successful pregnancies after drinking a cup or more (up to four cups) a day of red clover infusion.

It is especially helpful if there is scaring of the fallopian tubes, irregular menses, abnormal cells in the reproductive tract, or "unexplained" infertility. It may take several months for the full effect of this herb to come on and pregnancy may not occurs until you have used it for a year or two. You can improve the taste by including some dried peppermint (a spoonful or two) along with the dried clover blossoms when making your infusion. Treat the father of the child-to-be to some red clover infusion, too!

Happy first day of May! With warm spring weather we get May flowers but we also get fleas and ticks! Make sure you check your pets after theyโ€™ve been outside, especially if theyโ€™ve been in heavily wooded areas or tall grasses. We also recommend using flea and tick preventative methods (see the next photo for our suggested types.) Prevention is key to keeping your pet healthy!
