Cave Creek Arizona Veterinarian Contributes to Book About Canine Cognitive Dysfunction

PRESS RELEASE:

Cave Creek Arizona Veterinarian Contributes to Book About Canine Cognitive Dysfunction

Dr. Ava Frick, DVM, of Animal Bodywork & Nutrition, is very aware of the need for pet parents to learn more about cognitive issues in their dogs.

As a contributor to, F. Barish-Stern’s book, “Shamrock’s Story, From Hurricane Katrina to Doggy Dementia & Alzheimer’s, Dr Frick explained how the disease manifests itself in the brain tissues.  She said it involves the autonomic nervous system and the fight or flight, or calmness balancing of the hypothalamus, parathyroid, thyroid and adrenal glands. Dr. Frick stated that when there are deficiencies in the dog’s body, such as from exposure to environmental contaminants, food that is not healthy or balanced for the dog, and excess toxicity from heavy metals, these all play a major role in the messages that are sent to the brain.

Barish-Stern set out to write this book after experiencing this disease with her dog and explains what she has learned, in order to help pet parents understand more about cognitive issues in their dogs.

Dr. Frick believes, “Helping to share insights about the aging dog’s cognitive difficulty and ways to avoid it not only is a way to support dogs but their human companions as well. Knowledge is a powerful tool. This book has amassed a wealth of knowledge, from all over the globe, and now it is there as a reference and guidebook of understanding and what can be done about it.”

Dr. Frick offers chiropractic and physiotherapy (for any animal) and nutritional guidance (cats, dogs, horses, rabbits) to keep your animal healthy, or get them there. Here practice, Animal Bodywork & Nutrition is located at 37608 N. Cave Creek Road, #103,Cave Creek, Arizona. She can also be reached at

As our dogs get older they often suffer chronic health conditions that make the end of their life a struggle and painful.

The most frequent causes of death in our beloved dogs are cancer and kidney disease. In addition, 80-90% of senior dogs suffer from arthritis.

Early signs that your senior dog may be very in pain or struggling include disorientation, preferring to be left alone, avoiding activity, dull coat, loss of housetraining habits, wandering at night, and poor appetite.

These symptoms could also be indicators of heart disease, kidney disease, or liver disease.

Unfortunately, this is common-place in the pet industry today! And we believe there is a better solution.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that Dr. Ava Frick, one of the world’s most renowned Integrative Veterinarians has partnered with Pet Summits to bring you the very first Senior Dog Care Summit. It’s completely free and online from April 8 – 12.

Dr. Frick has practiced for 24 years in animal chiropractic, rehab and nutrition. Her research and books in the fields of equine exercise, hair tissue mineral analysis, nutrition, and veterinary microcurrent therapy (to which she is considered the world’s leading authority) have been internationally published.

She has been honored as Hartz Veterinarian of the Year Runner-up, received a humane society Visionary Award, and was one of the first inductees into the Animal Chiropractic Hall of Fame.

Over the year’s she has helped thousands of animals recover from health issues and diseases they were told they could never recover from.

Step Two: LifeExtend Method Nutrition

STEP TWO

Next comes the need to fill in the gaps to whatever food you are feeding. (Hang in there pardner, I am getting to the food part!). Here are my go to items:

  • For the Fast Oxidizer it is Frick Formula #1. This is good for 90% of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds, and horses, based on my published research. [ Insert how to get to buy it on the site] And if you want to find out where your animal fits, visit the FUR ANALYSIS page and get started!
  • Those fast oxidizers generally also need some fatty acids. Visit my Standard Process InSITE page and order either Tuna Omega-3 Chews or the Cod Liver Oil perles.
  • Other base options are:
    • Platinum Performance Canine
    • Platinum Performance Feline
    • Platinum Performance Equine
    • Standard Process Complete DF for horses
    • Standard Process Canine or Feline Whole Body Support
    • EndoMet Megapan
    • EndoMet StressPak
    • These can be ordered via the Direct Dispense section of this site at www.avafrick.com/shop/

CHECK LIST:

  • Options to feed – Air dried, dehydrated, freeze dried, raw frozen, canned, baked kibble, extruded kibble, human grade fresh, home-cooked
  • Review the label on what you are currently feeding. Can you identify everything there? Is the ingredient list compatible with health? If there are words on that label you don’t understand, look them up so you get the whole picture.
  • The best would be home-cooked. Next human grade fresh.
  • Shop organic if possible. Many pet foods now have organically grown plants and use animals fed free range, drug and antibiotic free, and organically too. And if you home cook you can select from foods in those aisles.

Raw is a diet primarily of uncooked meat, edible bones, and organs. There are some Prepared or Packaged Raw diets that also include fruit and vegetables. Natural enzymes and beneficial bacteria are found in raw pet foods, undamaged by any heat application.

Freeze-Dried Raw has a freeze drying process that is widely appreciated as the most effective method of food preservation; it imparts the greatest shelf life and the least nutrient damage. The food is not heated; moisture is removed using a very high vacuum, preserving the natural ingredients.

Benefits of Raw and Freeze Dried Raw

  • Palatability is great! – pets like it, Yum Yum 
  • Superior digestibility – leads to improved stools & better overall health
  • Shinier coats & healthier skin
  • Cleaner teeth & breath
  • Improved weight control
  • Increased immunity
  • High energy levels
