Collaboration with great folks is fun and rewarding !

The trifecta at work. Dr. Cross, Feral Feline Friends, and Riverside trying a new laser acupuncture protocol for cortical blindness in our little feral friend Handsome. He doesn't hate us that much, which makes things easier. But he is super cute in "cat-oggles".

A broken heart: Risk of heart disease in boutique or grain-free diets and exotic ingredients

Over the last week I have had multiple clients ask about the recent concerns over feeding a grain free diet to their dog. This blog post from a vet nutritionist at Tufts is incredibly helpful for breaking down the facts. I have folks tell me daily that they are shamed or guilted or accused of using food that is gong to kill their pet or the they caused their pet's cancer/disease because they feed a food with grains, they feed a kibble, they don't feed raw, etc. There is no perfect way for all pets. The best path I believe i to look for facts, look for data, complete all this, step back and see how your pet is thriving, and be willing to change your mind as science provides more information. NOTE: I don't sell food. I don't recommend a specific brand. I don't think there is a perfect or "best" food. You have basically 3 options: a prescription food, a commercial over the counter food, or complete and balanced homemade diet. Pros and cons for all that are individual and unique.

A recent increase in heart disease in dogs eating certain types of diets may shed light on the role of diet in causing heart disease. It appears that diet may be increasing dogs’ risk for heart disease because owners have fallen victim to the many myths and misperceptions about pet food.

Ethan, 23 years old

23 year old Ethan is experiencing a peaceful day of self-care with Dr. Cross. While listening to the smooth sounds of streaming relaxation tunes, Ethan is laying on our vibration plate to loosen stiff muscles. The vibration also gives him exercise that is easy on his joints. We love him. And, yes, we said he was 23!

From Jessica Stanley and REY:
"Our little Rey was introduced to your products through Dr. Cheryl Cross in Knoxville, TN. We are seeing Dr. Cross for several issues, but one was working on increasing core strength and pelvic floor muscle strength to help with bladder incontinence. We ordered our own Orbit and K9 Kore Disk for home use. Recently, Rey jumped off the bed and got a minor muscle injury and iliopsoas strain. We have been using the Orbit and Disk to help work through these issues. These products have been amazing and as you can see, she loves using them! Just look at those muscles! We have also started using them with our senior dog to add a little exercise into his life! We love TotoFit!"

SQUIRT IN THE JIGGLE CHAMBER

SQUIRT ALERT! He is seen here enjoying a frozen yogurt in his Jiggle Chamber! The vibration plate used by Dr. Cross can help animals with ailments like arthritis, injuries or joint issues get some exercise when they otherwise woulnd't be up to activity. It also increases circulation and can provide a pretty tiring work out. The yogurt is optional, but you can see that it definitely keeps Squirt interested.
