Faithful Old Friend

Gotta dog for a buddy or a cat for a confidante? If so, you’re not alone—an astounding
number of households in this country harbor furry “children.” Lucky for both of you that
proper nutrition and holistic healthcare can help keep four-footed family
members healthy and happy as the years go by.

She greets you cheerfully after a long day of work, and doesn’t mind that you’re a bit crabby after that meeting with your boss. She understands when you’re busy with the seemingly endless tasks of everyday life, and waits patiently for your attention. She doesn’t care that your hair’s a mess and your breath is not so fresh first thing in the morning because she loves you uncondition­ally. And you feel the same about her. No, we’re not talking about your mother—although hopefully there’s equal adoration for her—we’re referring to your family’s beloved four-legged companion.

For most pet owners, companion animals really are like another member of the family and they treat them as such. According to figures from the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, 63% of American households own a pet. Those 71.1 million homes are estimated to spend over $40 billion this year on pet products. If the billions we happily spend on our pets is any indication of our feelings towards them, we obviously love them an awful lot and we want them to be as happy and healthy as they can be for as long as possible.

As an Energy Times reader, you’re already aware of the importance of a healthful natural diet, immunity-boosting supplements and complementary medicine for your own whole-body well-being; it just so happens that our furry friends benefit greatly from a holistic approach to health as well. By providing Fido or Fluffy with natural, unprocessed food, eliminating unnecessary medications and vaccinations, and maybe even treating her with massage, acupuncture or homeopathy, your pet can live happily and disease-free well into her twilight years.

Feeding Frenzy

As you may have suspected, a fresh, wholesome diet is likely the most important factor in an animal’s abil­ity to ward off illness and disease. Contrary to what the pet food industry wants us to believe, processed commercial food is not necessarily the healthiest choice. Besides using difficult-to-digest grains as filler (dogs, like humans, are omnivores; cats, especially, are carnivores), commercial pet food is full of preservatives, salt, artificial flavors, residues from chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and questionable “meat” products. “Most of the non-natural foods on the market use waste products from the animal and plant processing industry that are not fit for human consumption,” says Shawn Messonnier, DVM, a holistic veterinarian based in Plano, Texas ( www.petcarenaturally.com ). Messonnier explains, pet food companies can use slaughterhouse scraps such as feet, beaks and feathers (labeled as byproducts), road kill, euthanized animals...
