A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear

Tuesday, February 27 - Joy's guest is Stanley Popovich, author of A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear. Every one of us feels fear from time to time. But now, we no longer have to allow those fears to rule us. Through 15 years of extensive research, in-depth interviews with both psychologists and spiritual advisors and a compassionate evaluation of the underlying nature of fear, Stan has collected an incalculable wealth of successful techniques for the management of fear.

Stan will be discussing the following: How people who own pets/other animals deal with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. How these mental issues effect how we deal with our pets, which include abuse, neglect, other things. What are some effective ways pet owners can deal with fear and anxiety. The importance of getting help. The importance of not taking your problems out on your pets. It's not their fault. Animals can help us to manage our stresses. To learn more about Stan, please visit the website,

February - National Dental Health Month

February is national pet dental health month. Did you know that poor dental health can lead to other health problems including kidney, lung, heart and liver issues? Did you know that your pet's dental health is closely related to diet? Many holistic vets state that commercial pet foods lead to poor dental health in our pets. They also state that dry kibble does not actually clean our pets' teeth any more than pretzels clean human's teeth.

“More than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by the time they’re three years old. This can lead to serious health problems,” explained Dr. Brook Niemiec, a board certified specialist in veterinary dentistry. “Make sure every veterinary checkup includes a thorough inspection of your pet’s teeth and gums, and a discussion on how to keep them healthy and clean between visits.”

If you are concerned about using anesthesia, ask your veterinary clinic if they offer anesthesia-free teeth cleaning or could recommend a clinic which does. You can also learn more about dental health for your pets by visiting the website,

Happy Valentine's Day from Pet Essences

Tuesday, February 13 - Joy's guest is Polly Fox, founder of Pet Essences - All natural flower essences for your pet.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Pet Essences! As we prepare to share loving feelings with those we cherish on a day devoted to expressions of the heart, one way to share Love with our animals is through the gift of flower essences from Pet Essences®. Our animal friends and companions could truly benefit from a vibrational treat that facilitates ease and re-establishes balance on many levels. Some give beautiful flowers to their beloved as an expression of Love on Valentine’s Day. Think of Pet Essences® formulas as vibrational bouquets given to your animals to express your Love for them in a way that will enhance their health, happiness and wellbeing.

Animals are particularly responsive to energies around them, so flower essences with their gentle vibrations are extraordinarily effective with animals. They are aware of our feelings and receive the energy of actions we take to express our Love for them, so what better Valentine could we give than an essence providing subtle but profound energetic support? And remember, the energetic pattern of a flower’s energy has been transferred to pure water by the sun, making the flower formulas’ vibrations especially welcome at this time of year!

Pet Essences® formulas support the emotional balance that underlies true health and nourish the body’s innate capacity to heal. The formulas are useful in a wide range of situations encountered while sharing life with your animals. When looking at our catalog of remedies, if you are not sure which ones to choose, we encourage you to let intuition be your guide.

Always remember that flower essences are absolutely safe: they do no harm. If you choose the wrong remedy, you may not get the results you are looking for, but there will be no negative side effects. . If you are not sure your animal has a problem in a certain area, you can rest assured when giving one of the Pet Essences® formulas that if your animal does not need the vibration a remedy introduces, nothing will happen.

If a remedy jumps out at you when looking at a list of our remedies, if your awareness stops on one for some reason, please go with it. Your heart and inner knowing are your truest guides and offer wisdom to those who listen.

Your animals could benefit from a remedy for a weakness that you have not yet recognized. As with ourselves, conditions often brew for quite a while before obvious symptoms manifest. An animal’s body does not need adjusting unless its vibrational rate is lower than optimum, in which case the information systems of the body - the cells receiving the communication of the flower formula - see the need to raise their functioning level to optimum and begin to do so. When you give a flower essence formula, cells identify the remedial vibration of the essence, recognize their mission, and begin their work of balancing and harmonizing the system.

Let’s look at a few specific formulas that would make a great Valentines’ Day gift to your animals.

Emotional Stability offers your animals the support and psychic protection they sometimes need to have their own stable emotional world and be in it regardless of what is going on around them.

Anxiety and Fear takes the fear out of an animal’s emotional experience.

Life Force Zest supports renewed vitality and energizes sustained wellbeing.

Calming Solution is for the demanding attitudes of “pet me, feed me, take me for a walk”.

Meridians helps cells communicate and restores a balanced flow of chi or life force through the meridians of the body. An excellent one to take after surgery.

Internal Cleansing is for helping remove residues from pharmaceutical drugs your animal may have taken at the time of surgery or other health crisis.

Immune System Booster addresses the immune system upon whose strength all wellness ultimately depends.

Endocrine System is to offset the impact of environmental pollutants on the all-important glandular system.

Trauma Recovery helps those animals that may have suffered trauma or neglect.

Depression and Grieving helps when sorrow dampens your animal’s spirit, whether from loss of another animal in the household or from a loved family member leaving home.

Emergency Rescue is for in the event of an emergency of any kind.

Pet Essences® formulas offer the compassionate animal caregiver an ideal expression of Love on Valentine’s Day. Remember to let intuition be your guide and follow your heart this Valentines’ Day.

Welcome Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic

Today, Talk With Your Animals is proud to introduce a new vet clinic to its listening audience. It’s called Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic in Lynnwood, WA. They strive to create an environment where your animal companions can receive the very best of care at affordable prices. By working hard, they keep high-quality veterinary medicine accessible for many. Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic personnel provide a blend of quality traditional and complimentary medicine to a wide variety of household pets including dogs, cats, reptiles, small mammals and birds.

The following quote pretty well sums up their philosophy:

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises.He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him.He is not an interruption to our work. He is the purpose of it.He is not an outsider of our business. He is part of it.We are not doing him a favor by serving him.He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.

When you enter Helping Hands, you will always be treated with fairness and respect. They are very conscious about not wasting your money and you will never feel that you were taken.

They go the extra distance to provide you with things like a written estimate before performing any major procedure. You can always ask a doctor about an approximate estimate before ANY treatment is provided.

The doctors at Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic realize illness does not occur without causes. They attempt to treat the cause of disease rather than merely eliminate or suppress symptoms. Although it is not always possible to identify these underlying causes, it remains their goal since alleviating them provides the best possible outcome. They also strive to answer questions, educate their clients and help you to make wise and informed choices for your animal companions. They will speak to you with compassion and in plain English to be completely understandable. If you don’t understand something, please feel completely free to ask for clarification.

The guiding principle of Helping Hands is to choose methods and medicinal substances to minimize the risk of harmful effects. The clinic embraces the holistic approach to pet health and wellness. They balance traditional treatment modalities with neutraceuticals, herbs and homeopathic medicine.

Helping Hands Vet Clinic provides all aspects of basic medical and surgical care.

There is one on-call and four full time doctors with 16 dedicated and caring people serving as staff members. Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic provides individualized attention during anesthesia recovery at no extra charge.

No appointments are required for examinations or consultations. Walk-in hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday 9 am to 4 pm. Evening hours are available by appointment Monday through Thursday 5:30 to 7 pm. Surgical cases, including dental procedures, must be scheduled in advance. For animals over 7 years of age, they require a doctor consultation before scheduling any procedure involving general anesthesia. Teeth trimming for small mammals can be done during normal walk-in hours.

I’d like to provide an example of Helping Hands pricing using blood work. Most blood work in the Puget Sound area goes to the same commercial labs. While many clinics charge over $100, Helping Hands charges $85 for the same tests. Even though they keep veterinary medicine affordable for many, they never compromise quality.

You can contact Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic by calling 425-672-4343. They are located at 18415 33 Avenue W, Lynnwood, WA. Their website is
