"For the part can never be well unless the whole is well"
Welcome to the Onpets community!
Onpets is your one-stop site for comprehensive, unbiased, socially responsible, authoritative information on animal wellness, training guidance and life style issues pertaining to you and your animal companions. Veterinary care is evolving as our awareness grows about the efficacy of prevention and integrative/holistic approaches to animal wellness. Onpets provides timely information from vets and other animal welfare experts about:
- clinical treatment alternatives, including acupuncture and natural alternatives to alleviate the effects of Prednisone and natural alternatives to chemotherapy
- functional veterinary medicine, including advice about natural allergy management
- nutrition, including canine nutrigenomics and the benefits of probiotics for your dog and cat
- humane training methods – see our training series
- lifestyle issues, including the benefits of taking your pooch to work
Many of us travel and eat out with our four-legged babies and include them in our activities and lives, just as we do our human children. We have information on pet-friendly parks, re-purposing old furniture for our companion animals and integrating new rescues with your existing household pets.
We care deeply about animal rescue and welfare so Onpets features rescue organizations and rescued animals and invites you to share your stories with the rest of the Onpets community.
Who are we?
Onpets was founded by animal lovers for animal lovers. Yvonne, our Founder, has 5 rescued dogs, including a wolf-mix, and one feral, TNR (trap, neuter, return) cat who adopted Yvonne 9 years ago.
Yvonne’s canine soul-mate, Rila and her little Alpha-in-training, Minnow (both pictured above on the beach in Nova Scotia), both died last year at almost 18 years and 16 ½ years of age respectively but they live on in the work Onpets is doing and motivate us every day to provide the best information out there for you and your companion animals.
Our lives have been immeasurably enhanced and enriched by our companion animals and we hope we can contribute to the quality and richness of your relationships with your own furry babies and help our Onpets community members provide a more fulfilling and complete lifestyle for themselves and their companion animals.
