There is always new research out there, so many products you’ve never heard of, and so much to learn when it comes to pet health. And if you’re working as an animal health provider of any kind, it’s especially important to stay on top of what’s going on.
These are my favorite (printed) magazines for keeping up with the latest studies and new products:
This monthly magazine is filled with invaluable advice and tips for those who are interested in positive training and alternative pet health. They also do dog food comparisons and publish annual wet and dry dog food reviews.
I always learn something new from each issue. Have you ever heard of Willard Water? Or did you know that giving a dog with strong body odor a little bit of coconut oil every day can help reduce the smell or even get rid of it completely?
Articles in past issues have included: Herbal medicine for animals”, “A guide to animal friendly lawn care”, “Discover the benefits of Gemmotherapy”, and “Feng Shui creates harmony for animals too”.
I know this blog is about alternative options, but I think it’s important to know what’s going on in all areas. Sometimes you need traditional medicine as well, and when you do, it’s good to be well informed.
Very similar to Your Dog, this monthly newsletter comes from the Cornell School of Veterinary Medicine. And don’t be intimidated by the fact that these last two newsletters are published by veterinary schools – they are not filled with scientific terms you have to look up. There are a lot of good articles where you can learn more about behavior, diseases, parasites, etc.
