Create a wellness plan for your pet.
Creating and executing a wellness plan can be an essential and beneficial process for dogs, both for the pet owner and their pet. Preparing and understating the use of canine vaccinations, potential complications or ailments that may arise, and steps to mitigate discomforts are key components to a successful plan. A wellness plan does not need to be a comprehensive report, but rather an approach and a mindful prioritization of pet health. Some of the initial eating habits and dietary plans when bringing home your pet can transition into some of the most long-term consequential health actions. One of the long-term preventative focuses is on dental health, over 70% of dogs suffer from gum disease by the age of three years of, one way of promoting dental health, while mitigating dental brushing would be adding molecular iodine to your pets’ daily water. Dr. Babette currently offers IoVet Oral, a form of molecular iodine that has been double placebo tested by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VHOC). Such things as establishing healthy eating patterns, mitigating excessive ‘treating” or simply taking into account the ingredients of formula or recipes into account for total health.
The nutrition and diet of our pets are essential. Much of general health and the interconnectedness of health stem from a nutritious and balanced diet, specifically being gastrointestinal(GI) and digestive health. Dr. Babette consults on nutritional health and gut health utilizing specific techniques and practices of pet nutrients, one specifically being Food Therapy(CVFT) learned through the Chi Institute. The techniques from the Chi Institute curriculum focus on Chinese food therapy which advocates specifically using carefully selected food according to its energetic properties to restore and maintain health. The connection between what our pets intake and their long-term healthcare imperative, it’s key to establishing healthy habits, maintain those and supplement our pets’ nutrition in a multitude of ways, just as we would for ourselves.
While establishing proper dietary habits earlier on is key it’s never too late to put a focus back on rejuvenating and bringing new healthy nutritional opportunities for our pets. Dr. Babette offers numerous pet focused dietary and health supplementary products in her store, some include specific GI boosts to help gut health, relieve dietary stress or dietary changes.
