Holistic medicine for pets can be helpful for so many different conditions! Here’s a more unusual case I’ve been treating. Sweet Cooper had been struggling with hair loss for about a year before I started seeing him. He’d been to many different veterinarians and a dermatologist with no improvement seen.

The first picture of Cooper is March 2022 and the second is just a few days ago! We are making great progress!! He is getting a combination of integrative treatments including nutrition therapy, Chinese herbs, supplements, bathing and Cytopoint. The Cytopoint had previously been tried with no success but in combination with other therapies he is having great results. That’s why integrative medicine is so wonderful!!

Spring is the time for cleansing. I harvested this beautiful Stinging Nettle today from the creek by my farm. Nettle is a wonderful alterative (cleanser). I use it frequently in dogs for allergies. It is anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory. It just happens to be ready for harvest at the peak of allergy season! Nature truly does provide everything we need…if we just know where to look.

It’s allergy season and here’s a nice home remedy for your dog. Allergies in dogs often come with skin infections both yeast and bacteria. Thyme tea is an excellent natural topical treatment for skin infections. It is anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-allergic and anti inflammatory! Brew 5g of fresh thyme with 1 cup of boiling water, cover and steep for 15min. Cool and apply as a leave on rinse or direct compress over infected skin twice a day. Store unused tea in the fridge and discard after 48 hours.

Is your Slippery Elm sustainably harvested? I have many clients who use this product for their pets. Slippery Elm is endangered in a large part due to over harvesting. The inner bark of the tree is used medicinally and many people strip too much bark at one time, killing the tree. Make sure you are purchasing from a company like Mountain Rose herbs that is committed to sourcing from sustainable sources. Or use Marshmallow Root (Althea officinalis) as a great alternative!

Slippery elm powder is great for any GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, ulcers, poor appetite) and dosing for dogs is 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds mixed into food or yogurt twice a day until symptoms resolve. Give 1 hour after any medications because it can prevent absorption.

I’m in awe of the beautiful ways people choose memorialize their beloved pets. This is a dear friend and client of mine who had to say goodbye to her German Shepherd of 14 years in late 2021. At the in-home euthanasia we did several ink paw prints and she had one done as a tattoo! Just beautiful. Her sweet girl will always be with her.

This sweet girl is one of our new integrative cancer care patients. She is just finishing chemotherapy with UC Davis and we are starting her on a regimen of Chinese herbs, medicinal mushrooms and an organic home-cooked diet full of fresh veggies and antioxidants to give her the best possible outcome!

I know we post a lot of severe cases receiving help with acupuncture but it really is wonderful for early arthritis too! Henry is 14 and has mild arthritis in his hips, knees and elbows. He also has a history of back issues. We have started regular acupuncture to keep him pain free and mobile in his senior years. He also gets a whole fresh diet, regular cold laser therapy from his mom with a My Pet Laser, Adequan, glucosamine and PEMF therapy! He truly gets the best care!!

I’ve recently been doing some volunteer work for Napa Wildlife Rescue incorporating some holistic modalities for a few wildlife rehabilitation cases. Here I am using #coldlasertherapy for a beautiful Red-Tailed Hawk recovering from bumblefoot. Cold laser increases blood flow to the injured feet, is anti-bacterial and decreases inflammation. It speeds healing time and therefore time to release back into the wild! Thank you Napa Wildlife Rescue for all the hard work you do every day!

This absolutely beautiful girl is what integrative cancer care is all about. Fergie has a soft tissue sarcoma on her leg and the average survival time with treatment is 12-18 months. We’ve been treating her for over 3 years!! She recently scored a 10/10 on our quality of life scale. Although the tumor is growing, with Chinese herbs, proper pain medications and anti-inflammatories she has an excellent quality of life. I always tell my clients that when we combine Western medicine and Chinese medicine we always get better results than using one or the other by itself.

Harley is such a cool guy in his Doggles. He wears these for his cold laser treatments weekly. Harley is 12 and has elbow arthritis. The cold laser and acupuncture treatments he gets have improved his energy, attitude and mobility. He just wanted to keep going when he was out for a walk this week!

We’ve been busy with acupuncture lately! Sweet Sophie is one of my new patients who has weakness and pain in her back legs. When I first came to see her she had very poor reflexes and they have improved so much in just a few treatments. She also loves acupuncture and falls asleep with her needles in. Here she is getting electroacupuncture today, just dreaming peacefully!

Our whole goal is to keep our patients happy and comfortable in their older age, so they can enjoy doing the things they love! Levi is 16 1/2 years old! He gets cold laser and acupuncture weekly for his arthritis and hind-end weakness. He is such a sweet boy and truly an inspiration!

The long awaited “after” video of Winston is here! If you didn’t see the “before” video please look back at our last post. Winston was in a cart for over 6 months after a stroke and with acupuncture he is now walking on his own! Check out this beautiful boy!

Winston is absolutely inspiring. He is 15 years old and suffered a stroke in December of last year that caused paralysis in all 4 limbs. He was showing very gradual improvement but had been in a cart since January. Spoiler alert he is no longer in a cart!! I’m sharing his “before” video here but stay tuned for the “after” in the next few days! Dr. O’Hara has been doing weekly acupuncture for him since the end of July and after about 8 treatments he started walking on his own!! Oh my gosh Winston you are amazing!!

Look at these 3 beautiful Bouviers! Porter is in the middle getting his electroacupuncture treatment and his housemates are right by his side for support. He is being treated for discospondylitis and we are using acupuncture for adjunctive pain relief to help increase his comfort and decrease his doses of traditional pain medications while he is undergoing antibiotic treatment.

What is a good glucosamine supplement for dogs? I am out of the one I use and was wondering if you suggest a more holistic one. Thank you
