Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog is a community for pet owners who are caring for a paralyzed dog, cat or other pet. We offer tips, support, news and where to find products for the daily care of pets with paralysis and other neurological conditions.
The website is dedicated to my dog Sophie and the lessons I learned after she became paralyzed. As an animal advocate writer and co-founder of the Heaven Can Wait Animal Society I thought I understood the needs of pets, until Sophie got sick. Her illness turned my family’s life upside down and changed the way we lived.

ELDH not only provides sanctuary for these dogs, who come from rescues from all over the country, but ELDH places some of the dogs in a very innovative way. They match senior dogs with senior citizens who might not be able to afford to keep a pet. ELDH pays for medical needs for the dogs and more. Listen in, and learn about the compassionate care ELDH gives to the neediest pets, who still have lots of love and life in them.

Ages ago, as were developing as humans, the world was quite different. We foraged for food, hunted, possibly grew our own, but fruits and vegetables bore little resemblance, then, to what they are now. Animals had their own food chains. Fact is, neither you, I, nor our pets can get all the nutrients we need from our modern day, totally processed, additive filled food. This is an entirely different world then the one we evolved in.
The pet food we buy is, for the most part, questionable. The 75 Billion dollar global pet food industry is highly competitive and, in search of higher profits, corners have been known to be cut. Unless we’re very, very selective, we can’t really count on our pets getting everything they need from food. For this, we need supplements.
