It’s important to look at how we can take natural, p ..read more

Granted, biscuits and other dry food are by far the easiest and most convenient way to feed your cat. But are they providing your pet with all the nutrition they need?

There are three main problems with a dry food diet, all of which can be solved by switching to a raw food diet.  Firstly, the water content of biscuits is too low. Cats have a very low thirst compared to other animals. While dogs will actively drink water multiple times a day, cats rely on their food to get the majority of their water intake. Dry food (biscuits) usually contain 5%-10 ..read more

One of MicroMed’s core values is treating causes, not just symptoms. Many cat owners are seeking help for issues such as itchy skin, allergies, or incessant licking. Although these are definitely things that can be (and should be!) treated, you often aren’t addressing the ‘root cause’ and are only treating the symptoms.  When the issues become persistent and ongoing, seemingly no matter what you use to treat it, then we need to delve deeper.  One of the most common underlying causes, aside from a microbial imbalance, for itchy, scratchy cats, is Leaky Gut, known as Intestinal Permea ..read more

Simone had tried everything to help her itchy dog, using countless remedies, medications, and therapies. After many frustrating visits to the vet while never getting any real answers, endless googling trying ‘every home remedy for your itchy dog’, she was reaching the end of her tether.  Sound like you?  You probably know that an itchy dog can be due to fleas, parasites, allergies, or other bacterial/fungal issues.

A number of years ago, I was blown away by training I undertook using a Darkfield microscope, to analyse my own freshly taken blood. The view of my own blood was fascinating, an almost 3 dimensional world of cells, organisms and exciting, unknown shapes. I suddenly began to understand the fragility and co-dependence of the life force all around and within us. A world formed by the decisions we make that impact the health and wellbeing of every cell in our body. Fast forward to 2020, and the emergence of a highly contagious virus, of microscopic size. A living organism composed of strands ..read more
