IN THE PRESS: Your Natural Dog Offers Free Holistic Pet Wellness Event Online
Your Natural Dog is pleased to announce its first free virtual event that focuses on healing pets holistically, using medicinal herbs, plants, mushrooms and food—instead of pharmaceuticals.
Do No Harm, The Opioid Crisis in Veterinary Medicine
September 22, 3 pm ET Hosted by Angela Ardolino and Dr. Josie Beug, DVM
How our pets are suffering from the overuse of opioids, allergy medications, antibiotics, and steroids and what are effective alternative treatments.
Just like humans, our pets suffer from the overuse of antibiotics, steroids and opioids which do more harm than good. And our pets can’t tell us they’re suffering, so we don’t know if these pharmaceuticals are helping or hurting until it’s too late.
According to the FDA, prescription medication error is one of the leading causes of death in veterinary medicine. “We want to do something about this epidemic and have decided that educating pet parents and caretakers is the way to go,” says Angela Ardolino of Your Natural Dog. Ardolino will host the event along with a panel of respected holistic veterinarians, including Dr. PJ Broadfoot, Dr. Ruth Roberts, Dr. Sarah Urban, Dr. Ava Frick, Dr. Tejinder Sodhi of Ayush Herbs and experts like Maria Ringo of Carna4 and Dr. James St. Clair of Top Dog.
This event, the first in a series, will help to educate pet parents, pet caretakers, healthcare workers and even veterinarians about the power of medicinal herbs, plants and fungi that have been proven effective for thousands of years, for everything from pain and inflammation to cognitive decline and cancer.
