Thank you for joining us here at Holistic Livestock! We live on acreage in Southern California. We utilize solar power as our sole source of electricity. Luckily, California has tons of sunshine to keep the solar panels happy and our electrical needs met. Wood burner stoves provide the main heat sources in both the main house and cottage.
There are many links here for you to research and gather information. With all the animals we care for, it is not possible to check these links regularly, so please let us know if you find a link that's not working. Additionally, we appreciate being notified about any holistic links you feel should be added to our site. It is our goal to provide as much holistic information to you, ourselves, and others. Thank YOU!
We have provided many links to give you information about different health care modalities and among them is traditional veterinary information to assist in your research of diseases, etc. We do not necessarily advocate use of traditional vet medicine, but believe some of these sites are useful in obtaining knowledge. If you question any information and are truly seeking holistic remedies, I urge to look into some of the holistic animal health discussion lists where there are many others who have learned from experience, many who are in the animal health field, book authors, breeders, holistic vets, etc., who can help provide you insight into information you are seeking. We strongly believe everything was put on this planet that we need to cure disease. The higher Spirit/Being, God, Goddess, whomever you believe in, did not put needles here for us to inject ourselves and our animals with, amongst many other man made drugs, etc. Our experiences, amongst those of MANY others, are showing without a doubt, that holistic care is truly best. Please take your time and thoroughly research the things you have come here for. Longevity and superior health is what you will gain, as will your companions.
The bottom line goal is not just to treat any dis-ease or illness, but to effect a permanent CURE. Holistic methods can do this, whereas traditional man made medicines usually only effect a temporary relief from illness or dis-ease.
Healthy animals rarely succumb to disease, illness, or bad behaviors. When they do, they bounce back quicker than unhealthy animals. They get plenty of exercise, sunshine, love, tlc, natural rearing foods that are biologically appropriate to the specific animal, clean environments, mental exercise in the way of proper, appropriate training, and avoidance of toxins. They have jobs to keep them busy, whether watching the house while we are gone or making sure the couch or cats don't get eaten while we are away. They are part of our family. Often, they are better than a few humans in our immediate family and deserve the BEST possible health care we can give them.
Here are a few holistic animal health online discussion lists. Many of these discussion lists have animal health professionals (DVM's, AHT's, etc.) and holistic animal health book authors and like minded individuals.
