5 Steps to Holistic Health for Your Pets


08.27.2014 | 01:38 pm

In the past decade, the holistic approach to health and healing has come to the center of attention, and for good reason. The belief of wholeness to a healthy lifestyle has caused many to reexamine their own daily habits and ongoing lifestyles and implement a more rounded approach to their lives. Holistic health is differentiated by its focus of the whole person, including mental and social parts of our being rather than just the physical. As we begin to understand the importance of this approach and how an overall sense of wellness is essential to health and life longevity, why are we not also placing the same emphasis on the lives of our loveable pets?

A holistic philosophy, when it comes to our four-legged roommates, is a focus on the whole quality of life of your pet. From environmental stressors to quality diet and nutrition, your pet’s happiness and health is all based on the choices you make. Luckily, it’s easy to give your furry friends a long, enjoyable life; just make decisions that are best for the whole of your pet’s life.

Stress-Free Living – Just as people under a large amount of stress are more susceptible to sickness and long term damaging health effects, stress also plays a large part in the health and wellbeing of our pets. Every pet is different, and what can negatively affect some isn’t even noticed by others. Pay attention to the signs of anxiety in your individual pet, such as constipation, excessive shedding, hot spots, pacing, panting and shaking. Take account of what causes your pet anxiety and tension and take care to remove it from their lives if possible. Often times, defining a regular routine can be just the ticket to easing daily stresses.

Let’s Get Physical – Part of a daily routine should include some form of exercise. For humans, exercise is a proven releaser of stress, and the same goes for your pets. Talk with your vet about the amount of exercise your buddy needs and offer some variety, including playing fetch, going for walks, or just playing in the back yard.

The Happy Place (favorite places, parks, lakes, etc.) – Every dog has a happy place. Maybe it’s the park or the beach, and just saying the words sends your dog into a happy dance of wiggles next to the door, ready to go. For some, it’s the four simple words “go for a ride” that cause the happiest of reactions. Remember: your daily life includes activities outside of your home, but for your buddy, you’re all they’ve got. So make sure they are able to visit their ‘happy places’ as frequently as they can; it’s always good for the soul to reconnect with a place you love.

You Are What You Eat – In recent years, there has been a greater focus given to clean eating and healthy diet choices, and a holistic method of wellness for your pets should include health from the inside: their diet. You check the ingredients of your own food, so do the same for your pet. It’s crucial for your pet’s healthful life to be receiving the right food, with balanced and natural ingredients.

Rewards and Praise – Pets’ tastes are not complicated; they love food, sleep, play and you, and the attention you pay them can determine not only the quality of their lives but also the longevity. Take time to spend with your pet every day; remember that a good head scratching can go a long way. Include your pet whenever you can, choosing an outdoor dog-friendly restaurant every once in a while or planning a vacation that doesn’t result in Sparky visiting the boarder for a week. Praise your pets for their good actions and reward them when they are doing their best to show you just how much they really love you. ­

The holistic approach to pet wellness is, at its core, showing your pet the good life, one of physical and mental health with little stressors and plenty of adoration. You know how much you love your pets, and knowing you are doing everything you can to keep them around for as long as you can…that’s a good feeling.

Your furry buddies depend on you to make the right choices for their health, so consider taking a holistic approach to their happiness, health and well being.

Q. My dog needs to lose 4 lbs. She is a miniature Pinscher Dachshund and she weighs 14 lbs and is just beginning to have a little tummy. I feed her 1/2 cup of kibble morning and 1/2 cup at night but she is not losing weight. I can’t get her to run and chase a ball but I do take her to the park and walk her. Do you have any suggestions for how to encourage weight loss?

Sorry to hear that your pet is overweight. It’s a common problem that can lead to more serious issues, so I congratulate you on recognizing the problem and making an effort to resolve it. As long as you have had your pet’s annual checkup and your veterinarian has indicated that excess weight and a reluctance to exercise are the only issues, we can focus on getting the weight off. Exercise is important for losing weight and keeping it off. Choose a type of exercise that your pet can tolerate every day. Regular exercise conditions the muscles, lungs and heart, and burns calories.  As the weight comes off and your dog’s body condition improves, you can increase the intensity or length of the exercise.

Diet is also a factor to consider. Feeding pets more calories than they need is a common problem. Many feed to satisfy the pet’s appetite and not to just maintain a slightly lean body mass. It is difficult when you know that your pet is asking for more but it is essential to feed only enough to satisfy the caloric needs of the pet.

Holistic Select Weight Management Chicken Meal & Peas Recipe is designed to help reduce calorie intake and at the same time help satisfy appetite. In addition, there are supplements like glucosamine and Omega 3 fatty acids that can help reduce the discomfort associated with arthritis, which is common in overweight pets.

You have already began an essential part of getting weight off. You have set a goal for the amount of weight loss needed and you know the starting weight of your pet. Begin with what the feeding guide on the bag recommends for a 10 pound dog and weigh your dog weekly. We recommend losing approximately 2% body weight per week. In your dog’s case that would be approximately 4 ounces. That means it could take you up to 16 weeks for your dog to lose 4 pounds.

If the pet is not losing enough you must reduce the amount of food  even more. If she is losing too much weight too quickly you must increase the amount fed. The ideal portion size varies from pet to pet.

Q. We have a 14 mo. old Black Lab mix (we think Coon Hound).  He barks quite a lot for no apparent reason–not all day, but a lot.  Any suggestions?

Every dog will bark to some degree. Some hound breeds bark more than others. Excessive barking is certainly annoying and should be controlled. The first step is to determine what has caused the dog to bark and then work to reduce the urge to bark. Protection of territory, fear, alarm, boredom, play, attention seeking, and other reasons can trigger a barking episode. It often takes a good deal of time to solve a barking issue so don’t give up. Shouting can encourage barking so speak calmly. Try saying “quiet” in a soft manner and when the dog responds, reward him with praise and maybe a treat. There are often local pet training classes that you could seek for help as well.

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips


07.02.2014 | 03:50 pm
Fourth of July Safety Tips
Whether it’s the Fourth of July, New Year’s Eve or a community celebration, it’s important to keep your pets safe from the hustle and bustle of the holiday. Loud noises, fireworks and bright flashing lights can put stress on your furry friend. The following tips will help you make sure your companions are comfortable and content while you enjoy yourself:
Keep your pets indoors
Unless you have the toughest dog around, most pets are anxious around loud noises. If your dog is crate trained, put her in her crate, cover with a blanket and toss in her favorite stuffed animal or a treat-filled toy.  If your pet likes to hide under the bed or in the closet, let her do so. Leaving the television or radio on can distract from the fireworks.
Have your pet properly identified
Animal Control states that there is a 30% increase in lost pets the first week of July. Always make sure your pet is micro chipped and has a collar with proper identification listed including their name, name of owner, phone number and address. Animals found running at-large may be taken to the local animal shelter, where they will have the best chance of being reunited with their owners if they can be identified.
Lighter Fluid, Matches and Citronella candles are dangerous
Lighter fluid is dangerous to pets and can be irritating to skin. If ingested, it can produce gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous system depression. Chlorates found in matches are a harmful chemical substance and if ingested, can cause your pet difficulty breathing, can damage blood cells or even cause kidney disease. Citronella candles contain oils that produce stomach irritation and  central nervous system depression. And if inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumonia in pets.
Keeping cool during the hot summer
Pets overheat easier than humans. Animals are susceptible to heat stroke, just like people, a condition that can be lethal for dogs. Be sure your pet has plenty of shade and cool water, and limit outdoor playtime and exercise. Cool wet towels wrapped around your pet can help to bring down body temperature.

Q. Have you any advice for the owner of a large-breed geriatric dog suffering from arthritis?  I have tried a number of things already, including adding Glucosamine and Chondroitin to his food.

A. You can help alleviate your dog’s discomfort by ensuring that your dog maintains a slightly lean body condition. Also, regular exercise is essential, even for dogs with arthritis. Arthritis is a painful disease of the joints, but since the muscles support the joints they need to be kept in shape. Rather than heavy exercise, I would recommend that you take your dog for a regular walk every day, going at his pace. This will help maintain muscle tone without overexertion.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are good supplements along with Omega 3 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory properties. I encourage you to work with your veterinarian to determine the correct dosage of these supplements.

Nutrition also plays a role in helping to maintain lean body condition. Holistic Select Senior Health Chicken Meal & Rice Recipe is a lower-calorie,  meat-based diet which includes the supplements mentioned above.  You may still need to supplement your dog’s food, but I would recommend discussing this with your veterinarian.
