"This Group has some wonderful people and a solid sense of community."
Our Members are of all walks of life from around the world sharing experience and knowledge with each other about caring for our pets– naturally.
Discussions on all aspects of caring for companion animals, focus is health including: Feeding (rawfeeding /BARF, home-made /cooked food), Supplements, Grooming, Exercise, Training, Complementary Alternative Veterinary Medicine (CAVM),Conventional Vet Med (AKA Integrative Vet. Med.), Holistic Healing Modalities: Acupuncture, Acupressure, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Massage, Traditional Herbal Medicine (THM), Flower Essences, Essential Oils, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Reiki, Ayurveda, Kinesiology, etc.
Nutrition, the Foundation of Health, is the most popular topic. Some dogs & cats are unable to tolerate a raw diet, so this is a good forum to discuss home-made food
"Because nutritional biochemistry is constantly evolving, some have questioned whether a manufactured diet can ever contain 'complete' nutrition. One example can be found in the fatal consequences of dietary taurine[amino acid] deficiency that occurred in cats being fed, interestingly, a high-quality premium diet(Pion and others, 1987)... scientists cannot know everything necessary about animal nutritional requirements." -from: "Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine, Principles and Practice", edited by Allen M. Schoen, DVM, MS, and Susan G. Wynn, DVM.
"If a diet is unnatural, disease will keep company with those subjected to it." -Juliette de Bairacli Levy, author of "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat", published in 1955.
