Helping You Keep Your Dogs Healthier Naturally since 2003.
Are you confused by the ever-growing maze of natural health modalities? Are you giving your dog one thing after another and still not seeing good results? Have you consulted with numerous conventional veterinary practitioners and your pet is still not well?
The Whole Dog provides safe, natural solutions!
For those who have only ever known conventional pet care methods, the natural approach may at first seem to go against almost everything you know. This is because conventional methods have been developed from the human perspective and based on treating symptoms.
The truly holistic or naturopathic approach looks at and works with "the whole animal", in a natural way that ignites the body's internal healing force and stimulates its natural abilities to heal itself. To just eliminate the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the cause or dis-ease that produced that symptom or symptoms in the first place.
Dr. Jeannie Thomason is a certified, veterinary naturopath (aka Animal Health Coach) who has been educating dog owners and providing naturopathic ( holistic, natural) animal care since 2003 via her consultations, articles, webinars and this website . She also offers tested and proven, natural products when necessary.
Dr. Jeannie provides a personalized approach to natural animal health care that is second to none.
Dr. Jeannie is not a veterinarian but a teacher. She does not heal disease, but rather, she offers information that can help you make educated health decisions for your own companion animals. To be sure, the dogs under her care benefit exponentially from her naturopathic approach to wellness, which includes specialized training in nutrition and aromatherapy,
As an animal naturopathic practitioner, Dr. Jeannie’s goal is to help you detect the root of the cause of your pet’s physical, emotional and/or behavior problem and then use nature's laws of health and remedies to assist your pet's immune system to re-balance and then maintain health.
Her aim is to empower you, the owner/care giver with the knowledge and resources to manage the health and well-being of you pets via information available on the website and through consultations
The Whole Dog's focus is on putting the dog's needs first by taking a "wholistic" or naturopathic approach and honoring him as the species he is - a dog. Honoring the dog as such is by far the best gift you can give him.
Natural/Holistic Dog Care Begins With Proper Nutrition
The foundation of true health is proper nutrition. Without proper nutrition every virus, every allergen, every parasite, every bacterium, and every fungus are made all the more pervasive, powerful, and dangerous. Not because they are strengthened in any way, but because the body's ability to fight them off is dramatically suppressed without proper nutrition. Nutrition is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of LIVE enzymes and nutrients) to support life. Most common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a proper, species appropriate diet.
While Dr. Jeannie's passion is to assist you in preventing health problems in your pets. Most of her clients have been owners of dogs, cats and parrots who have not had their pets health improved with conventional veterinary treatments at their regular veterinarian.
Dr. Jeannie states: "Most of my clients have a local or regular veterinarian for conventional surgery and emergency services only, while they will consult with me for chronic or ongoing problems and nutritional help where the ongoing conventional drugs and diets have not been working for their pets; for example demodectic mange, yeast infections, skin allergies, ear infections, intestinal upsets, pancreatitis, kidney disease, idiopathic seizures, cancer, etc. "
Naturopathy is not a single modality of healing, but lifestyle that incorporates nature's array of healing modalities, including nutrition; aromatherapy, herbal medicine, homeopathy; hydrotherapy or other natural modalities.
If you would like to set up a consultation for a wellness and lifestyle assessment of your dog, please be sure to visit the consultation page for more information.
"Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of Nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life."
