Sun Dog Cat Moon is the name of our new secondary veterinary clinic…
That hot mess express called “detox” is finally over!! The goat smelling doodle is gone and my babies are looking good!…
They are still consuming the alternative to raw ZIWI Peak dog food, and their coats are thick and ultra fluffy. Their energy level is off the chain – but it’s not going to “cure” Harley’s environmental allergens.
So I’ve been on the hunt for an alternative to conventional medicines for dogs!
HOLISTIC / CHINESE CARE –
We believe in seeing a specialist for ourselves when it comes to health care so why not for our pets?
Sun Dog Cat Moon came highly recommended –
At Sun Dog Cat Moon, we fully believe in the strength of medicine, and while this approach is often sufficient for treating pet illnesses and emergency situations, there is more that can be done to treat chronic conditions like arthritis, autoimmune problems, organ failure, or debilitating diseases. We integrate all available proven modalities to ensure your pet receives the best and most thorough care.
In our years of experience with animals, we’ve seen countless examples of the power of an integrated approach and how it can transform pet health and happiness. By using simple and cost-effective methods such as harnessing the healing power of food, exercise, and making improvements to a pet’s environment, you have the ability to achieve optimal pet wellness.

So I gave them a call, grilled them over the phone and called back a few days later to make ta consultation appointment.
A lengthy exam for both Dood’s proved what I suspected –
- Harley is in great shape for his age but does have chronic environmental allergens
- Jaxson has allergies also, but not nearly as debilitating as Harley.
THE WAY AHEAD –
Dr. Kellie drew diagrams and gave detailed information with her diagnosis. I appreciated her use of laymen terms making it easier to digest and comprehend.
She of course suggested “allergy testing” but I declined. That’s just not in the budget right now. #keepingitreal
Turns out she was able to relate. She said I sounded a lot like her sister who once told her –
Kellie, I’ve got a family, bills, and life stuff. I don’t have $$ for allergy testing, just fix my pet!
Right then and there I knew we were a pawfect match.
The ear infections and areas of constant scratching and itching are classic environmental symptoms although we can’t be 100% sure w/o testing.
Scratching and itching, she described are “secondary” symptoms due to what’s going on inside which is “primary.” #makessense
We’ve got to address the primary with conventional treatments (antibiotics). Then we can look at holistic methods to strengthen the primary which will reduce or rid him of the secondary. #stillwithme
We’re due back in two weeks (once the antibiotic regimen is completed).
It’s been six days now and I like what I DON’T see – alot of scratching and licking!
I’m tickled to Doodle with our plans for a more natural approach to keeping these allergens at bay.
In another one of her diagrams, she touched on a holistic way to re-build his immune system.
But first – we’re focusing on the “primary.”
I intend to maintain a relationship with their other Doodle Doc.
He will administer their preventative care for two reasons –
- I like and trust him.
- He’s so much cheaper!
Sun Dog Cat Moon does it all –
- Preventative – to include dentistry, surgery, and diagnostics
- Chinese – therapies like; nutritional, herbal, massage, acupuncture, food, laser, and meditation
But they require me to dig deep in my pockets. #downtothestitching
No need to dig deep for an annual physical or immunizations. #youfeelme
LIVING AND LEARNING –
Dr Kellie and I touched on nutrition just a bit – she suggested I increase their fiber intake with Cauliflower…
Apparently cauliflower has vitamins and antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and support digestive health.
Small portions, not everyday and she prefers I offer it cooked vs. raw…
Stay with us, as I share more high in fiber veggies that I introduce to the Boys.
Have you thought about holistic veterinary care for your pets?
I cherish being a pet parent – ❤️
