Healthy Living

I ran across an interesting blog today that focuses on natural health. You might think this unrelated to the Indulged Furries, and it sort-of is, but not completely. We’ve had some successes using natural products to help with the furries’ medical conditions. For example, we used lactulose, a sugar, to help manage Ed’s kidney disease, and also as a laxative for Felix’s intestinal lymphoma. Fresh catnip was a fantastic appetite stimulant for Smokey during her battle with cancer.

What I was surprised to see on the Healthy Fellow blog was an article about Animal Assisted Therapy. And who’s pictured? A Golden Retriever of course! Bentley never had the opportunity to be an official therapy dog, but he’s therapy for me!
