Your Pet: “I Will Care For You”

I just returned from the annual American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association conference in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. It was wonderful to be surrounded by so many like-minded practitioners who are dedicated to integrating the best of conventional and complementary veterinary medicine. You can get more information on the expo by going to www.ihpe.info, or you can link in from www.DrDoMore.com. I’m looking forward to next year!

Dr. Do More is great organization whose mission is to make integrative medicine mainstream. You may want to introduce your veterinarian to their site. It has a wealth of information for animal professionals about integrative veterinary medicine. However, the best advocates for animal care are you — the other two-legged guardians of our beloved animal companions.

While at the veterinary convention, I gave a lecture on the energetic aspects of the human-animal bond. We talked about how animals can reflect the energy field of their human companions, and also how they teach us veterinarians. I know each of us has learned and grown because of the difficult cases that have come across our paths. There are no coincidences – we attract the cases we need to become better practitioners, and better humans.

I’d like to take a moment to clarify an aspect of this philosophy. When an animal reflects a negative aspect of our life, it is not because we are making them sick, or not caring for them adequately. They are reflecting problems that we have not resolved. So, by choosing to powerfully face the challenges in your life, and being kind and compassionate to family, friends and strangers, you help your pet. One of the best gifts humanity can give the animal kingdom is to take care of each other.

On that note, Iwant to show you a wonderful video, I Will Care For You. The words of the song were written by a client of Dr. Margo Roman, the founder of the Dr. Do More project. As I watch it, I wonder — who is singing, person or pet? Enjoy.

There is nothing like a pet to make you feel loved and warm inside.

Of course I will care for my pets as long as there is breath in my body. They are my furry family and deserve quality health care and quality food, a good belly scratching, happy play time and my undivided attention.

I have always believed in the human-animal bonding thing. My husband didn't until we got our last cat. Somehow, Ebony made him fall in love with him. I smile when I see him hold Ebony on his chest, and laugh when I hear him asking him questions!!
