Natural Pet Remedies

Natural pet remedies became part of my life in the early 1990s, my passion for helping and rescuing dogs, cats and birds began when I was a child in the early 1970s. Through my love for animal friends I began teaching how to care for them holistically along with others such as Cindy Schleuss, Sarah Fulcher, Cert.CBST and Michele Jarvis Wonnacott In 2003-2012 during my time as founder, owner, and practitioner of Simple Remedies Herbal Solutions in Victoria, BC, Canada, I noticed more people were seeking natural remedies because they felt at a loss with what to do for their sick animal friend. Today 2015, I notice more people are accepting, appreciative and pursuing natural pet remedies because they can see the increase of health and emotional issues our animal friends are suffering.

Scents have an influence on the endocrine system (hormonal system), metabolism, insulin production, stress levels, sex drive, body temperature and appetite. Out of our senses, smell is directly transmitted to the hypothalamus which affects our mood, motivation and creativity. Smell also affects our emotions, feeling and memories.

Natural Pet Remedies

Carola Schleuss, a California State Certified Nutrition Consultant, Certified Bodywork/Energy Therapist and a  Herbalist, has been working with animal friends naturally for over 22 years. During her time (2003-2012) as owner and practitioner of Simple Remedies Herbal Solutions, in Victoria, BC, Canada, Carola had the opportunity to assist many animal friends into better health. Some animal friends were in very poor health and she is thankful to those veterinarians who work with animal friends naturally so she could refer her clients to them when it was out of her scope of assistance. These veterinarians educate their patients on a whole real food diet, provide eastern and western herbal medicine and  homeopathic remedies, use acupuncture, Reiki and massage, and work with chiropractors who adjust animal friends.

Carola is also a contributor to the Herbal Collective Magazine, where she has been writing for animal friends since 2005.

Carola began learning about natural pet remedies by reading many natural pet health books, which began her journey into taking care of her animal friends naturally. Two of her favorite books are the Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine textbook, and Kindred Spirits by Dr. Allen Schoen, in which he shares the story of why he learned how to treat dogs with hip dysplasia and other life-threatening disorders.   

Two of the first books she purchased on natural pet remedies were:  Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats and Dr. Martin Goldstein's The Nature of Animal Healing. Reading these books back in 1995 inspired Carola to begin applying natural remedies and feeding her animal friends homemade food. Today Carola has three dogs and three cats who remain healthy on a whole food diet, receiving Reiki and other bodywork therapies and her special herbal formula Q's Super Greens for Animal Friends in their meals.
