Synthetic Fragrance – The Most Overlooked Toxic Chemical

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason The most overlooked toxic chemical used on a daily basis in our homes are products that contain synthetic “fragrances” It’s time to turn up your nose at any products that “smell”!   Synthetic Fragrances are the most overlooked toxic chemical in our daily lives.  While many of us have been taught to read labels on everything we want to buy and use in our home, around our pets and family, the sad truth about synthetic fragrances is that manufacturers are not required to list their fragrance ingredients on product labels.   IF they do list...

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! In biology class we learned that the body (of all vertebrates) are run by a network of hormones and glands that regulate...

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). When I was growing up, I remember that animals were treated a little differently than they are today. For example, for the most part animals lived outdoors and had a particular function or “job” to perform. Cats were mousers. Dogs were guardians. Chickens produced eggs. And so on. All of them lived outdoors. The only pet that I know lived indoors with me when I was a toddler was my Pekingese dog named...

Toxic Dangers of Lawn & Garden Chemicals

I often share and educate about the dangers of chemicals in products we use every day, from laundry soap to air fresheners. But how many us really stop to realize that a lush green lawn, might also be toxic to us and especially our dogs? As “natural rearing breeders” we may be feeding our dogs a species specific raw diet and not vaccinating; we may have stopped using toxic chemical cleaning products in our home but what about our yards and gardens?   Lawns are beautiful and they even have some wonderful benefits: Lawns absorb water, which helps reduce storm runoff and improve...

Toxic Lawn & Garden Chemicals

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason Lush Lawn or Thriving Dog – Do We Have A Choice? Several years ago, there was a study that was conducted over a 6 year period at the Foster Hospital for Small Animals at Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. This study was done to see the results of dogs being exposed to lawn pesticides, specifically those applied by professional lawn care companies. Guess what? It was found that dogs that were exposed to lawn pesticides had a 70% higher risk of canine malignant lymphoma (CML) by as much as 70%! The dogs in the study that were found to have...

Heartworm Prevention – Bewareness

A few years ago, in honor of the U.S.A’s National Heartworm Awareness Month, Dr. Will Falconer decided to slightly rename it to: “Heartworm Bewarness Month”. I totally love the message in renaming it. Wouldn’t it be great if we all begin to call it Heartworm Bewarness month? What do you say, will you join me in getting the word out on the dangers of heartworm medications and the truth about heartworms and how to naturally prevent them? This the time of year that veterinarians and the drug companies that support each other to put out commercials and send out post card...
