How the heck are you?
Here at Stardust Doggy Care, we’ve been a bit quiet on the old Blog, Vlog and Podcast front since just before Christmas.
The reason for this being that sadly on 2nd January, we suddenly and very unexpectedly lost the leader of our family, my beloved Gran.
Her death wasn’t Covid related but it was very sudden and a complete shock to us, so it’s taken a wee while for us as a family to process the loss.
This does not mean however that I have been sitting on my laurels, Gran would not have that at all and quite frankly would come back and haunt me if I became lazy or used her as an excuse!
What her passing did do, however, was put everything into perspective.
Whilst I absolutely loved working with my doggy gang and taking them on adventures every day, it was becoming more difficult to work this around our family life and I also wanted to devote more time to focusing on my passion of natural dog care, which I was struggling to do around my other commitments.
The upshot was that there was just never enough time to do everything and as Gran’s death proved, life is just way to short.
So I made the decision to close the Dog Walking side of Stardust and focus on the holistic therapy and natural dog care products.
What is holistic therapy I hear you cry, well put simply;
Holistic Therapy aims to treat the patient as a whole, rather than individual symptoms.
It is the treatment of the mind, body, spirit and emotions.
In doing this we regain the physical and energy balances within the body
Dogs respond well to holistic therapies such as Reiki and Massage as they are gentle non- invasive practices.
As dogs are tactile animals, they enjoy the sensation of touch and being spoken to gently during treatment.
As many dogs can develop a fear of the Vet, where possible and necessary alternative therapies can be used for treatment to reduce anxiety.
All of the Stardust products and therapies use Essential Oils and the reason for this is that they provide a multitude of benefits.
How do they do this, well…………
Essential oils are nature’s medicine and have been used for millennia in treating the sick.
Extracted correctly from the plant source, they are 100% natural and safe to use on dogs.
It is important to note that not all oils can be safely used around dogs and only certain quantities are safe, therefore it is vital to seek the help and advice of a qualified practitioner.
There is a lot of conflicting information out there, so someone in the know (like me) will be best placed to provide you with the accurate help and advice for your pupper. .
Over the last year I have created a range of natural dog health care products, which target a range of ailments and if used regularly, they will benefit your dog and save you money in the long run.
Natural health care is becoming more and more popular as we seek to enlighten ourselves about what we put into our bodies and our dog’s bodies too.
Alternative therapies such as Reki and Massage can work wonders for our dog’s physical and mental wellbeing.
I firmly believe that prevention is better than the cure, so as dog owners, if we get ahead of the game and start protecting our dog’s health now, we can help them live long, happy and healthy lives and who doesn’t want their pupper around a bit longer? It’s a no brainer right?
