    #10: Ghost Dog Dairy with Steve & Kathy

    #10: Ghost Dog Dairy with Steve & Kathy

    Goats, Garlic, & Freedom were the topics today on the Pet Wellness Revolution. Steve and Kathy walk us through the benefits of raw goat milk for dogs. Learn more about Ghost Dog Dairy and how you can strengthen your dog's immune system to fight off chronic illnesses, itchiness and digestion issues. 

    How many times have you heard of someone taking their dog to the vet and finding an unexplained tumor or growth?  Why is this so common?  Why do so many pets have allergies, skin and digestion problems?
    Over time, a bland, dry, industrial diet will starve the immune system of even the most vigorous and healthy animals.  Modern veterinary medicine offers surgery and medication to combat these problems, but a natural diet is the real answer. 
    Our farm is on a mission to save pets lives and improve their health.
    Farm Dog Formula is a kefir meal topping made from fresh raw goats milk.  Added to a quality dry food, it works to enhance the immune system and improve digestion.

    #5: How can Chinese herbs help with spleen cancer in dogs? With Dr. Nancy Scanlan of the AHVMF

    #5: How can Chinese herbs help with spleen cancer in dogs? With Dr. Nancy Scanlan of the AHVMF

    How can Chinese herbs help with spleen cancer in dogs? With Dr. Nancy Scanlan of the AHVMF.
    Today we are talking with Dr. Nancy Scanlan, the Executive Director of the AHVMF. She has been the Executive Director of the AHVMF since 2011. She is past President, past board member, and past Executive Director of the AHVMA. She is a past AHVMA Delegate to the AVMA House of Delegates. Dr. Scanlan also is past president and former board member of the Veterinary Botanical Medical Association (VBMA). She is the founder of the California Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (CHVMA). She earned her doctorate of veterinary medicine at the University of California, Davis in 1970. In addition, she is certified by IVAS in Acupuncture.
    The current cancer research study supported by the American Holistic Veterinarian Medical Foundation is being conducted by Dr. Erin Bannink. She is using traditional Chinese herbal medicine to treat dog with a common type of spleen cancer to prolong the canine’s lives. This is a nationwide study on dogs with canine splenic hemangiosarcoma, a disease mostly treated by removing the spleen after the tumor has ruptured and bled. The disease is aggressive in nature, and survival time after surgery is short, with most dogs living only two months afterward. Hear more about the research Dr. Bannink is conducting to help prolong their lives and how your pet could be part of her study!
    NOTE: The audio is broken up a little at times but I didn’t want you to miss this one!

Thank you for speaking up

Thanks for bringing this to pet parents and thinking of innocent and speechless creatures and be a voice to them. I can’t believe the self absorbed, heartless comment made, shameful. Appreciate your work.
