Do You Recognize The 3 Early Warning Signs That Your Pet Is Suffering From An Illness?
Pet ownership should be fun, easy and joyful. Unfortunately, our pets can become irritable, lazy and withdrawn when they don’t feel well. As a veterinarian, dealing with sick animals, I understand the stress an unhappy pet can place on us. But, when I think about how awful many pets must feel, it breaks my heart.
Here’s the good news…
You And Your Family Can Fully Enjoy Your Pet Well Into its Late Years, Without The Stresses of:
- Pet Allergies

Weight Gain and Obesity
Stress, Hormones and Health

The Importance of Gut Health
No Guts – No Glory!
“All diseases begin in the gut.” – Hippocrates, Father of Medicine
In ancient times they already knew that gastro-intestinal health is absolutely crucial!!
In recent years this organ system has received more and more attention. As horse woman and man, we know how sensitive our beloved horse friends’ guts are. One of the first questions asked by a veterinarian answering the call regarding colic is about the horse’s manure. But does it end there? Colics are significant incidences that are easily recognized, yet more subtle GI disturbances affect a horse’s health just as much.
In this lecture we will explore many questions on this subject:
- What is a healthy gut?
- What are signs of an unhealthy GI tract?
- Why is gut health so important?
- What are the effects on the brain, the immune system, and other parts of the body?
- Gut feeling – the physiologic bases for it?
- Gut microbiome and probiotics
