Most of these (toxic) chemicals are from soap, makeup, shampoo hair care, perfume and other personal care products. Our dogs and cats are being exposed to these chemicals just by being in the same house with you, they have no way to avoid exposure. Dogs as you may know,  have about 220 million scent receptors (compared to our 5 million). Dogs can smell things that seem...

Thinking about adopting or buying a puppy or kitten? We recommend getting your next pet from a NRB- a Natural Rearing Breeder.   Why? For starters, It is so much wiser and so worth it in the long run to purchase a quality, naturally reared puppy or kitten that is from a chemical free environment and raised “naturally”.

Immunity Vitality & Vital Force in Animals

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason You have most likely read or heard the term “vitality”,  “vital force” and most likely, “vital animal”; quite a lot over the past few years, but what does this mean? It is defined in a few different ways but in animal naturopathy, we define it as: balance, homeostasis, high vibrational frequencies, a strong, properly functioning (or balanced) immune system.   Immunity and Vitality You see, immunity is a joint effort encompassing the entire being – all parts of the organism.

What Titer Tests DON’T Tell Us

Posted by on Nov 30, 2018 in Articles, Featured, Immunity | 0 comments

Excperpt from Dr. Jeannie’s article: Titer Testing – Do titers equal immunity?” What titer tests DON’T tell us about true immunity: Titer tests cannot tell us what the memory cells are doing.  Memory cells are considered essential for viral disease immunity for specific viruses. There is NO test for qualitative measuring of memory cells. Memory cells are what prompt the immune system to create antibodies that are dispatched to an infection associated with the pathogen that it “remembers.” Memory cells don’t...

Toxic Chemicals/Hormone Disruptors In Household Products

As breeders and especially NR breeders, we should be concerned about the many toxic chemicals/hormone disruptors lurking in our homes, kennels, catteries and grooming areas that are, what are called “Endocrine Disruptors”.  Hormone or endocrine disruptors are in everything from household cleaning products (laundry soap, toilet cleaners, etc.), synthetic fragrances, personal care products (shampoo, deodorant, perfume, etc.), food packaging and even pet foods!

Are Your Puppies Truly 2nd or 3rd Generation NR??

It has come to my attention over the last couple of years that many Natural Rearing breeders are breeding their second or third generation (or even multi-generational)NR bitches to CR (Conventionally Reared) stud dogs!  WHY? There are just not enough NR males available for stud it would appear.  This should not be!  How can one say their puppies are second or third or what ever generation NR, when the sire was NOT NR at all, only the Dam was? And then the puppy families are totally confused and don’t understand why their puppy is not...

Why Natural Rearing – From a Pet Owner’s Perspective

By: Dr. Kim Bloomer I’m going to take you on a journey to show you how and why I came to the conclusion that natural rearing is the only way to raise an animal (any animal).

All of them lived outdoors. The only pet that I know lived indoors with me when...
