Ask a Vet Q&A Session 4/26/2024

Drs. Jeff Feinman and Christina Chambreau join forces to tackle pet guardian questions.

Here are some key take aways:

Diet and Nutrition

  • Feed a species-appropriate fresh, whole food diet for optimal health
  • Cooked or raw is fine, focus is unprocessed and fresh ingredients
  • Tailor the diet to the animal’s needs – more probiotics, digestive enzymes, etc. for gut issues
  • For cancer, feed whatever the animal wants, try a ketogenic diet
  • For dental issues, feed large chunks/bones to naturally express glands and clean the teeth

Parasites

  • Parasites indicate an underlying vital force imbalance
  • Focus on rebalancing energy using modalities like Reiki, supplements, diet
  • Can use medications short-term while addressing root cause

Lyme Disease

  • Positive test indicates exposure, not necessarily infection
  • No need to treat if no symptoms present
  • Can use herbs and energy work to support immune system

Holistic Approaches

  • Work with a holistic vet for chronic or older animals
  • Learn modalities like Reiki, Ttouch, acupressure
  • Use flower essences, herbs, homeopathy as appropriate
  • Track symptoms over time in a journal
  • Avoid suppressing symptoms without addressing root cause

Heartworm Prevention

  • Give prevention monthly in high risk areas
  • Can test twice yearly instead of giving prevention
  • Healthy immune system can kill migrating larvae
  • Detox with energy work like Reiki rather than drugs/herbs
