Throughout it all, we can always rely on our dogs.  As we journey through the seas of life, we all encounter various obstacles, disappointments, and heartbreaks. Life's tumultuous moments may be uncomfortable, but they are also inevitable, crucial milestones that shape us into the person we are meant to be. Imagine the vast and endless ocean, with its endless waves crashing against the shore.  Now imagine a ship navigating through the choppy waters, braving the storms, and reaching the safety of the harbour. The ship is you, and the storms represent the challenges in your life. Chall ..read more

How to find out if there is something missing in your dog's diet One of the most common questions I have been asked since launching GreenMin is how can one know if there is anything missing in your dog’s diet.  I am happy to let you know that you need to do no more guessing. With a HairQ TEST you can check your dog’s mineral levels from a hair sample and see if his or her diet is complete.   What is a HairQ TEST? The  HairQ  test uses  the most  advance  inductively coupled  plasma – mass  spectrometry method (ICP-MS) and is pe ..read more

Synthetic supplements for dogs can cause serious problems

by Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

It is very apparent from nature that living organisms are extremely capable of selecting nutrients that they need and throwing away the ones that are in excess. The body does it without any outside regulation and with ease.   How many supplements are too many? The problem of excess nutrients only arises when synthetic chemicals are offered instead of food-based concentrates and supplements. These supplements including synthetic vitamins and minerals can correct symptoms of severe deficiency - for example scurvy - Vitamin C deficiency and Beriberi vitamin B1 hypovitaminosis.

A complete guide Especially now, in the COVID era, dog lovers seem to be more concerned about kennel cough, also known as canine tracheobronchitis.

Is ice cream ok for dogs?

Should your pooch be deprived of this delicious guilty pleasure? In almost 30 years working as a veterinarian, I have yet to come across a dog that does not like treats. Most people love treating their dogs and who can resist those eyes, right?! When it comes to opinions on treats, there are three groups of dog lovers. The first one says that dogs should not get any treats at all, the second group advocates for their dog to have a little piece of everything that they eat and the third group believes that dog treats are ok as long as they are dog specific and not human food. Most people would e ..read more

Is your dog a narcissist or an angel?

And one tip on how to feel better about shoddy customer service I will probably get a bit of flack from my team, as well as from some of you, for not writing about "health issues” but let me try to satisfy as many of you as possible. As my life progresses, I have become increasingly aware that health, well-being, and life in general, are much better when we learn how to properly communicate and interact with others. This is why I feel compelled to share a few words with you on the topic of empathy. Perhaps we can blame nature and the process of evolution for turning us into the s ..read more

Are you a trustworthy friend?

A few thoughts on the topic of trust and a little self-assessment exercise  I recently watched a program in which a medical doctor who is also a university professor, was discussing a diagnosis with his rather well-known patient. As he was going through the treatment options, he said something that I am having a hard time forgetting: “We have to acknowledge that we do not have our life in our own hands.” Wait a minute!!! That statement doesn’t ring true at all! Most of the time, we do have our life in our own hands. Our decisions make a big difference in how well we do both mentally a ..read more

How resilient are you? Here is what we can learn from our pups  Today, I am eager to share something with you, and at the same time, I am worried that I will wind up sounding like an old guy talking about “the good old days.” But I have to accept that I can’t please everyone because whenever I write something a little more punchy, a few friends always ask if I am writing about them. Frankly, I don’t have anyone specific in mind, but this may be about all of us when I think about it. Do you find that the easier life is for people, the more they seem to complain? One of the driving forces beh ..read more

Health is like a Jenga tower

by Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

I will never regret knowing this core principle of health  If you are perplexed by the comparison between health and Jenga, let me explain. There can be many definitions of health, but I hope you will be willing to go all the way down to the atomic level where everything in the world and the universe is the same. The only difference between a tree and your dog is the arrangement of energy particles. The variables are infinite. Health is an optimal arrangement of the body’s energy particles, nothing is added, nothing is subtracted. A healthy body can be compared to a completely assem ..read more
