New Structured Water Website


It is my hope to educate and raise awareness to what Structured Water is and to the many benefits of drinking, showering, and using Structured Water in multiple ways. In that effort, I have created a new website! Click the button to check it out.

We have the best selection and prices of Structured Water devices!





World's Oldest Dog





Sadly, we don't see this very often these days due to all the toxins our pets are exposed to on a daily basis in their food, water, air, on the ground, as well as other sources. But it IS possible. Meet Maggie, the world's oldest dog, who lived to be 30!

In this article you can get free access to the entire video interview Rodney Habib (PlantPaws.ca) did with Maggie's owner by clicking on the "full article" button, or by going here: http://www.worldsoldestdog.planetpaws.ca/ and find out why Maggie lived to be 30 years old. This is a great example of what is possible.

Maggie was also in USA Today,  The Huffington Post, Fox News and more.

Courageous and Determined Pet Owner


Although this took place in Australia, this courageous and determined pet owner speaks for many of us here in the U.S. too -- those of us who have done due diligence in researching pet foods any way. And for those of you who have not done any serious research on the foods (and treats) you buy and feed your pets, I know that if you had (or do), you would (or will) have come to the same conclusions and be standing there right beside this woman!

In 2016 I wrote about some of the problems with prescription pet foods, and another article about a class action lawsuit against the major makers of prescription pet foods. Also in 2016, a movie came out about pet food called Pet Fooled, which is now available to see here.

Not to mention, just this year two new documentaries came out -- The Dog Cancer Series: Rethinking the Canine Epidemic, and The Truth About Pet Cancer, both of which have dozens of experts discussing the role that food has on a pet's health.

I applaud Maria in Australia for being brave and determined to bring attention to the problems with prescription pet foods. One person CAN make a difference.

Are Your Pets Eating Food Coloring?

Learning how to read the labels on pet food is one of the best things you can do for your pet. 

For instance, do you buy those "colorful" foods because you think it will be tastier or better for your pets? Better think again! It's just a marketing ploy to get you to buy it. The colors are for your benefit. Pets don't care what color their food is; besides, studies have shown that they don't see the same color spectrum as we do.

Do you know what you're really feeding your pet(s)?

Essential Oils and Pets




There is so much disinformation out there in regards to essential oils and pets. Especially when it comes to cats. Even the mention of essential oils and cats can send people into a frenzy. According to Melissa Shelton, DVM, "much of what we 'think' we know about cats and essential oils is misinterpreted and outdated. The simple evidence is that in the absence of gross mis-use and overdose of essential oils, they really are quite safe."

(For those so inclined, click here to read the most current research review in regards to safety of essential oils with cats, also pertaining to other animals.)

The key things to using essential oils with any pet, including cats are:

👉The essential oils must be 100% pure, high quality, veterinary grade. Not all oils are created equal! They need to be screened specifically for use in veterinary applications.

👉They must be used in species appropriate doses and regimens. (i.e.,Cats are not small dogs.) Essential oils need to be regarded similarly to how we use drugs.  There are species considerations, dosing considerations, and interval considerations.

Obviously, some research and knowledge on the subject is required. Essential oils are powerful but safe if used in the correct ways. Sound a little too complicated or like too much work? No worries! Dr. Shelton has done all the work for you. You and your pets can experience the wonderful benefits of essential oils by purchasing essential oil products created by Dr. Shelton herself. The specific application and dosing instructions are found on her website for all her products.

Dr. Shelton attained her degree from The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999.  She is the owner of Crow River Animal Hospital in Howard Lake, MN – where her work with the medical use of essential oils for animals began in 2008.  In 2011, she dedicated her practice solely to the research and advancement of veterinary aromatic medicine.  (She prefers to call it aromatic medicine instead of aromatherapy.) Dr. Shelton is devoted to providing accurate, honest, and documented information regarding essential oil use in the animal kingdom - and is a popular speaker at veterinary conferences. 

 In 2014, she introduced animalEO, a line of veterinary essential oil products for animals.  She has presented on the use of essential oils throughout the United States, Japan, Australia, and Canada.

She has also authored several books, including The Animal Desk Reference: Essential Oils for Animals and Essential Oils for Natural Pet Care: A Veterinarian's Desk Reference for the Top Health Concerns of Cats, Dogs, and Horses. I have both of these great reference books which sadly got damaged in the flood last year but I am so grateful I was able to salvage them.

I love essential oils and my pets and I have been experiencing the benefits of them for over twenty years.

Please visit Dr. Shelton's website at www.animalEO.info for more information.

The Truth About Pet Cancer Docu-Series


Losing several pets to cancer myself, I know the pet cancer epidemic is real. Our pets don't know how to protect themselves, so it's up to us to become educated pet guardians to help them live the healthiest lives possible.

Did you know …
  • In the 1970’s, Golden Retrievers on average would live to be 17 years old. Now, they average only 9 years.
  • Just 50 years ago only 1 in 100 dogs got cancer. Now, it’s worse than 1 in 2 dogs will be diagnosed with cancer this year. That's a ridiculous statistic.
  • Cancer is the leading cause of death among cats. In fact, 1 in 3 cats will be affected by this devastating disease this year alone.
  • So when I found out that Truth About Cancer were running a series about cancer in our pets, I wanted to tell you about it.
The Truth About Pet Cancer is a great docu-series which discusses in detail how to AVOID your pet getting cancer as well as what to do if your pet already has cancer. It includes interviews with over 30 Pet Health Experts including world-renowned veterinary oncologists, holistic veterinarians, and animal health specialists, just to name a few.

The Truth About Pet Cancer is available to watch for FREE! It begins Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 8 PM Central and airs 7 (one hour) episodes in 7 days. Each episode is available for viewing for only 24 hours, for free.
