Wholistic Video Lesson
Our 90+ years of "wholistic" experience helps you and
pet(s) achieve Freedom From Illness
article is dedicated to the memory of our 18 year old Chihuahua mix dog,
Mikki, who we escorted over the Rainbow Bridge this past Thanksgiving.
These senior pet care tips are what she taught us during her 1.5 years
of geriatric and hospice care and what we learned from our previous cats who lived to be 17 & 21
years old. These wholistic tips are meant to complement your
Regular Senior Veterinary Checkups—most
senior degenerative symptoms
do not show up until it is almost too
late. More frequent blood tests, as your pet approaches the senior
years, can help start treatment earlier than later when it may be
too late. With early warning perhaps one can try nutritional, herbal
or homeopathic remedies before the need for medication.
Warning Signs—be aware of
any changes in your pet’s body (such as lumps), appetite, behavior
(such as limping, favoring one side) and habits (such as getting up
slower, not wanting to jump up). They may indicate an early warning
of a degenerative condition. Consult your vet.
Good Nutrition—we feel one
should start good wholistic nutrition from Day 1
for a pet. This
begins with a species-appropriate diet as well as supplementing what
nutrients are missing from any
cooked foods. With a senior pet it is
most important they get extra Essential Fatty Acids (Omega oils) and
Regular Daily Walks—do not
just let your dog out into your yard to go potty. Senior pets need
exercise to encourage good oxygenation of the blood and flexibility
of the joints. Fresh air, sunshine and exercise are good for both
you and your pet. Encourage your senior cat to play and jump up on
furniture, especially a cat tree, as long as it is comfortable.
Weight Control—to prevent
many senior degenerative conditions do not let your senior pet get
overweight. Just like people, the extra weight can shorten their
life, accelerate the onset of arthritis and potentially lead to
diabetes, heart problems and other degenerative conditions.
Rotate Flavors—senior pets
become notoriously picky food eaters, especially
if they have
Chronic Renal Failure (CRF). Rotate flavors so they do not get bored. This is also a good idea if you have younger pets. Each meat
has a different nutritional content and it would be good to expose
your pet to many different meats to diversify the friendly bacteria
and enzymes in their gut.
Many Variety of Flavors—senior
pet’s taste buds change daily, especially with CRF pets. Do not
assume today's disliked flavor is forever. Buy small cans of many
different brands and flavors. If one flavor is disliked today, put
it in the refrigerator and try again in a few days or next week.
Preserve Taste—if you store
partial cans of food in the refrigerator, transfer the leftovers
into a glass or ceramic container rather than reseal the pet food in
its original can. Some pets may object to the residual taste left
when the food starts oxidizing in the can.
Good/Bad Days—geriatric pets
will have both good and bad days. Do not get
discouraged if they
have 2-3 bad days in a row. Gauge their status by how many
consecutive bad days they have over a month’s time. Click on Iris'

administering sub-Q fluids may seem like a daunting task at first,
they will definitely extend the life of your Chronic Renal Failure
(CRF) pet and give them a better quality of life. One can gain an
additional 6 months to possibly 2 years of quality time with your
companion pet. To save time and money, learn how you can do this at
home. At first, once or twice a week will be enough. Towards the
last stage, the need progresses to even twice per day.
small dogs, and especially cats, may be
sensitive to drugs. Our first
choice when senior symptoms develop is to try a homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathic remedies are safe, with no danger of overdoing or side
effects. For best results, consult a classical homeopathist rather
than just matching an over-the-counter homeopathic remedy to the
