Health & Longevity School for Dog Lovers
Nothing is more precious or rewarding than seeing your dog happy and healthy well into his or her late teens. The purpose of the Healing School for Dog Lovers is to pass on all I have learned about natural healing and nutrition in the course of 28 years of practice as a veterinarian. Based on my experience, even a few simple adjustments in your dog’s life can easily extend his or her life by several years and you and I know that there is nothing more valuable than the gift of extra time with your best friend.

The mysterious connection between your dog's neck and the internal organ health
I love how real-life situations bring me the ideas for each chapter of the Health and Longevity Course for Dogs. Just recently, I went for a dinner with a friend who asked me how life was when I lived in Europe, what the family structure was like and who is in charge in heterosexual marriages. I thought for a moment and remembered a saying that answered the question perfectly. In Europe, a man may be called the head of the...Continue ReadingYou aren't signed in.

One thing will make the most difference to your dog's health
Did you like chemistry in school? I wonder what your answer is to this question. Most people have a love/hate relationship with chemistry. The complex structure of chemical compounds makes most peoples' head spin. I took quite a few years of chemistry at school and I even remember having a chemistry kit where I made solutions bubble up, change color or transform from liquid to a lava-like substance.
