“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care”
How could we not agree with one of our Founding Fathers?
Our motto for the Holistic Family (us humans and all our dog friends) is: “you are what you eat” and that prevention of disease is the cornerstone of a happy and balanced life in humans and canines. And in these days of outrageous medical bills – visits to the Vet, x-rays, MRI’s and medications can set a family’s budget back very seriously.
The humans of Wholistic Pet Services, LLC cook at home and keep healthy and centered by integrating Traditional Chinese Medicine methods such as acupuncture, Jin Shin Do acupressure, and eastern nutrition with yoga, meditation, and massage.
Many of the holistic modalities that are used for humans today can be successfully applied to dogs. Here at Wholistic Pet Services we keep informed of the latest developments and discoveries in the holistic and alternative nutrition and rehabilitation fields. We try the remedies out on ourselves and our dogs first before suggesting to our clients.
Our ultimate goal is to develop and support a healthy immune system. A strong immune system guarantees that many infections and problems will not appear in the first place!
Over the years we have noticed that several behavioral issues that present in pets can be solved – or significantly alleviated – by changing the dog’s diet.
We are usually able to diagnose imbalances within the first few days of the pet’s stay with us and give you advice on a new diet and natural remedy regime. We will provide options that range from cooking at home, purchasing commercial raw food, and the best kibbles currently available in the market.
As part of the natural regime, we will suggest ways to fend off ticks and fleas with a protocol of herbal powders and sprays that we have successfully used on our dogs for many years. We can also guide you on natural methods of combating chronic pain for senior dogs.
Wholistic Pet Services offers “mini cooking courses” for owners who wish to do the best for their dogs AND for their wallets. We will show you how to buy and cook “raw” at home – using the same ingredients you use for your human family. This can save you a lot of money, as purchasing ready-made “raw” food combinations can be extremely costly.
