Free Videos Teach Easy, Affordable Holistic Pet Food Recipes

July 27th, 2015 · No Comments · Pet Health

Last week we told you about Dr. Judy Morgan, DVM, and her popular book “From Needles to Natural.” Today Dr. Morgan will show you how easy it is to create a holistic diet and lifestyle for your dogs. In her home cooking dog food book “What’s For Dinner, Dexter?: Cooking For Your Dog Using Chinese Medicine Theory” and free video series, you’ll learn how to use holistic Chinese Medicine theory to keep your pet healthy using fresh, wholesome food ingredients.

People are recognizing the importance of a balanced diet and avoiding preserved, synthetic, processed and pesticide ridden foods. We check the labels of food we eat and count calories, grams of proteins, carbohydrates and other nutritional facts but completely ignore it when it comes to our pet’s food.

Basically, our pets are just like us. If you spend a lifetime eating garbage, it’s going to eventually catch up with you. It’s easy to spot your own trouble areas but it can be harder to recognize what is unhealthy for your pet. My goal is to help educate all pet owners on how to formulate the healthiest possible diets for their animals. So let’s get started! — Dr. Judy Morgan, DVM

In Dr. Morgan’s helpful free webinar series “Home Cooking for Pets,” she brings “What’s For Dinner, Dexter?” to life with pet food nutrition basics, home cooking videos and health tips. Here’s a few helpful videos to get started. For more free pet home cooking information, visit the “Home Cooking for Pets” area of her website.

Avoid Spills, Trim Your Tripawd’s Fur Between Toes

July 2nd, 2015 · 2 Comments · Pet Health

Putting dog boots on your Tripawd is a nice option but it’s not always practical. One of the best ways to help your Tripawd dog or cat avoid falling on slippery floors is to clip the fur between their toes.

Shaving pads and trimming your dog’s feet allows their paw pads to grip floors much better. But figuring it out how to do it is tough. We tried using scissors on Wyatt Ray’s feet once but that was tricky and dangerous. Here’s a better way to trim foot fur:

When it comes to safety, shaving a Tripawd’s feet and paw pads are all it takes for extra peace of mind on slippery floors. Here’s one highly-rated pet groomer to get you started. Give this a try and let us know how it worked.

Mast Cell Cancer Basics for Tripawds with Dr. Hohenhaus

May 11th, 2015 · No Comments · Pet Cancer

Is your dog or cat facing amputation because of mast cell cancer?

If so, get the mast cell cancer facts in this Tripawd Talk Radio podcast with veterinary oncologist  Ann E. Hohenhaus, DVM, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology & Small Animal Internal Medicine) at The Animal Medical Center in New York City, a non-profit veterinary center that has been a national leader in animal care since 1910.

Mast Cell Cancer Facts for Tripawds

Listen below as Dr. Hohenhaus teaches us everything we need to know about mast cell cancer including:

  • What is the difference between a “mast cell” and a “mast cell tumor”?
  • How do does mast cell cancer present in dogs and cats?
  • Are there things we can do to prevent it, or catch it before it spreads?
  • What do vets do to diagnose mast cell cancer?
  • Is mast cell cancer treatable? If so, how?
  • What is the prognosis for this cancer?
  • Are there new treatments to help make mast cell cancer easier to live with?

After the show, Dr. Hohenhaus was kind to respond by email to a mast cell cancer question we didn’t get time to ask:

  • When is radiation therapy recommended for Mast Cell Cancer and how do we know if it will work?

Her response was:

Radiation therapy for the treatment of canine cutaneous mast cell tumors has been studied in a number of research publications starting in the early 1990’s. The results from these studies is similar. In dogs where mast cell tumors cannot be surgically removed with clean margins, radiation therapy administered to the area where the tumor has previously been removed prevented recurrence of the tumor in a large proportion of dogs. Dogs treated with radiation have experienced survival times well in excess of 2 years.
Radiation therapy is a local treatment and if the mast cell tumor is expected to spread systemically, chemotherapy is also indication.
