The Holistic Dog Group on Yahoo

My name is Liz.
I created "The Holistic Dog" e-mail list on January 4, 2001, following a post on the
list about the miraculously successful treatment of tumors with flaxseed oil and cottage cheese

We also maintain an e-mail group (The Holistic Dog ) with how-to's and what-not's. We have a membership of about 600+, many longterm members who have an incredible amount of experience and knowledge about the common ailments, and even the not-so-common diseases.
The content of this site came together thanks to reader contributions and partial research of my own. If you have used herbs or supplements or other natural measures to treat one of your animal's conditions that you don't find on this site, please feel free to join the list and share your experience.
