My Pet Care Philosophy

My philosophy for pet care is: the more natural the products, the better. The more we can assist nature without adding chemicals or manipulating the natural order of things, the better. I use play, herbal remedies and training to achieve the results we are all looking for. Often, pets are given "cheap" food in the mistaken belief that it must be OK or it wouldn't be on the shelf. Just because "Twinkies" are on the shelf, doesn't mean they are good for you! High quality food will overcome deficiencies to a degree, but sometimes supplements need to be added, tonics and herbal preparations used, to overcome malnourishment and nerve damage. Proper balance is when the pet is healthy, has a good coat, listens to it's owner, responds in the desired way, and training is easy.
