    10 articles that will transform your dog’s health and life

    By Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

    Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM has 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. His love of dogs and passion for natural healing and nutrition led him to writing, teaching and helping people create health naturally, without drugs, chemicals and processed food.

    Seize the moment, do not miss the opportunity

    Today’s piece contains some of the most important info from the past few months, so if you’ve missed anything this is another opportunity to keep your dog in great health.

    If you have been reading my weekly news over the past few weeks, you have probably heard me say:

    Whenever unsure, look at what nature does.

    But, there is one more thing that I forgot to mention when aspiring to this natural wisdom. Nature is not always about “doing something”, it is also about doing “nothing.” Seasons are a good example, as we see periods of blossoming and a harvest are followed by fall’s retreat and winter’s rest.

    For as long as I remember, I've felt rather conflicted about resting and doing nothing,

    because I was taught that resting meant I was lazy. In fact, I don’t remember my parents, teachers, or trainers telling me that resting was okay but finally, after five decades, I am learning how to rest. This is mainly thanks to my team of awesome people who encourage me to do so.

    Would you believe it?! My team is making me work less! They are amazing!

    To clarify, to me resting doesn’t mean doing nothing, it is more like doing something I love, with no particular reason or purpose in mind.

    Sometimes, I enjoy reflecting by going through the articles and posts I have created, and I am surprised at how much I have written about dog health and nutrition. It was me who wrote them, but it feels as if it were someone else. It almost feels like the dogs were “dictating” to me, and I just moved my fingers on the keyboard.

    With that said, today I have prepared a summary of thought provoking, health igniting, and hopefully life extending articles for you and mainly your dog.

    I like to believe that “the universe” knows with great accuracy what we need to learn, and this might be why you are reading these lines.

    This may be your moment to seize this opportunity and learn something new to keep your beloved dog(s) healthy.  

    But before I get into sharing the 10 articles of health transformation, I would like to share the message below because it inspired and nudged me to put this compilation together.

    Isn't it lovely!?  Anyhow, below are the 10 articles, and I hope they will make a difference in the life of your dog.

    Seize the moment!
