After losing 2 of my beloved Standards to conventional “medicine” ie. vaccination fraud, vaccine induced disease, steroids and antibiotics at 5 and 6 years old I swore I would never use it again. I took a leap of faith and dove head first into learning about holistic medicine and homeopathy and haven’t looked back, it’s been over 10 years now and it has not failed me yet.

  1. Dear Stacey:

    Fabulous website! Thanks so much for sharing. As you know, we are already “on your program” re vaccinations. Only problem we seem to be having is Coco with his chronic problem with yeast in one ear. We clean it twice a day and find that he is much better if Carol tapes his ear each night to allow air circulation. He is such a joy and we are ever grateful to you. Hope you still have the pictures you took at the barn party.


    1. Hi Donna! Thank you! Have you seen my Nutrition page?…. Raw would be ideal, but I would change his kibble for starts, rotate the brands after each bag only high quality kibbles such as Orijens, Taste of the Wild, Solid Gold (no fish), and Great Life. I have tried those when in a pinch for raw and they are descent. As for treating a ear yeast infection Iv’e never had to, thankfully. So I asked my friend who delt with one recently. She said “My vet gave me Mometamax for Abby. It was gone in two days. She said use apple cider vinegar to clean and colloidal silver to wash the ears.” You can find colloidal silver at a great price at Whole Foods look for the “Wellness” brand, excellent stuff. I hope this helps, let me know how it goes. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. Give Coco a kiss for me. Stacey
      Hi Donna,
      My friend Rosie just sent me this link on the reiews of the RX she used -it has goods reviews but I see some users have lost their eardrums and or hearing from it…..I don’t know if I would use it on my dogs. Here’s the link


  2. Hiya Stacey and Dave!
    It was so nice to see you both again and enjoy such an invigorating discussion regarding our philosophy and pet health – interesting how we share the same ideals! Nutrition and spay/neuter issues are always at the forefront of animal concerns.

    You have a lovely website!

    I really do hope that we can get together this spring and catch up again! The sunset views from my hill are pretty awesome – would love to share them with you sometime.

  3. You have a wonderful website and I can just image that the pictures are from DeAnza Trail? It was a pleasure meeting with you last week and I have passed your information to many of my friends.



  4. Dear Stacey,
    I am sorry to say that our beloved JB “Jet Black” (8) died this week after having 3 seizures and being put on phenobarbital for it. We don’t know what he had but most likely some kind of brain disorder or brain tumor we will never know because he died in 1.5 month of having the first seizure. We are heart broken as he was our son and my (not Mark’s) first dog and only baby. More to share with you if you want to email me. I am feeling better today but was initially devastated as he went so fast at the end.

  5. Hi, my vet says my 7 mo old standard pup has excessive and deep ear hair. My dog cries when the vet was pulling hair, so wants to sedate her. The vet also doesn’t want me using anything in her ear but to wipe with a vinegar/water solution on a gauze pad- only. She has already been on a course of antibiotics for ear infection- (ear was very dirty and smelled) I do my own grooming. If I took her to a groomers, they would do an ear wash, and my vet is telling me no, just wipe out with the gauze. I’m needing to educate myself, my first poodle, I’m in love, but looking like I picked the most sensitive hight main thence dog ever!


    1. Regina,
      I have used colloidal silver in the ears as a ear wash, it is a natural antibiotic. Her ears are painful so very slowly and carefully remove hair from her ears. Is your vet holistic? Sedation for an ear cleaning is not something I would agree to myself either. I would refrain from further vaccinations and feed her a species appropriate raw food diet, no kibble. If you don’t already subscribe to Dogs Naturally Magazine you should consider subscribing and visit them at They are also on FaceBook and have a post that you may ask questions and answers to. Amber Technology has a natural antibiotic called Vibactra Plus that you can give to her orally. I hope this helps you and your puppy Regina. Yes, Poodles are a bit of work to maintain, but once you master her ear care you will be so pleased 🙂
      All the best,


      1. Molly,
        There are so many wonderful raw food companies for us out there now. Watch Kodi’s arthritis be a thing of the past with a diet change and the Dasuquin supplement 🙂
        Happy New Year,


  6. Hi Stacey, So wonderful to get your holiday card! Our Kodiak Bear (Kodi) is the love of our life and our happy goober. Can you recommend a treatment for his arthritis? It has been slowing him down a bit. (Kodi’s 7 now, born 2/2) Thanks so much, Sean and Molly Tragni


    1. Hi Molly,
      So nice to hear from you. Is Kodi fed kibble? He shouldn’t have arthritis at his age. Please look at my nutrition page and go from there. There is a great supplement that can help Kodi out with arthritis it is called Dasuquin I would get Kodi on this supplement and also on a species appropriate raw food diet. Give Kodi a kiss for me 🙂
      I hope you have a Merry Christmas,


  7. Hi Stacey~ If one is overwhelmed with how to correctly prepare a raw diet, which commercial brand might you recommend? I’ve used Primal, Nature’s Variety, Stella & Chewy’s, etc. If I don’t prepare my own, which packaged raw would you recommend I feed?
    Thanks so much!


    1. Variety is key Aimee, so changing up brands as you do is good. I feed brand and wild game.
      All the best,
