National Registry Cross Breeding To Black Mouthed Curs

Ovary Removal Instead Of Spaying

When some savvy veterinarians took a fresh look at performing spays, a surgery we’ve been doing the exact same way for decades, they came up with a revised technique that accomplishes all of the objectives of the spay surgery with fewer complications. How cool is that?

Dogs For Autism

Getting a pet may help children with autism to develop their social skills, if the furry friend is brought into the home when the child is about 5 years old, according to a new French study.
Researchers found that children with autism who got a pet after age 5 showed improvement in their abilities to share with others and to offer comfort, whereas those who had a pet since they were born, and those who never had a pet, showed no such improvement.

Nosodes Instead Of Vaccinations~

Nosodes for our children instead of Vaccinations, the same is true for our pets: Truly educating oneself about vaccination requires an open minded analysis of the gray areas – the very areas that pharmaceutical companies and most likely your own doctor don’t like to admit even exist.
