Home Modifications

Some pets benefit from modifications to their homes to minimize risk of injury, and maximize quality of life. This can be extra helpful after acute injury, if they have chronic health issues, or just as they age.




Holistic Dog Journals

To best advocate for your pet, it is helpful to empower yourself with knowledge about nutrition, exercise, relaxation and other areas of holistic animal wellness. Some of the publications I have found helpful are:

Whole Dog Journal
