    Question: My dog has, within the past couple of years, grown a large lump on his back, about where his right shoulder would be if he was a human. What should I do? It doesn’t seem to bother him or cause him pain, so I haven’t consulted the vet. But, I was wondering just how it got there and if there’s a way I could get it reduced/removed.

    If this lump has been growing slowly over a period of years, it is probably some sort of skin tumor. Is the growth hard or soft? Does it move around, or stay in one place? Your vet can do a needle aspirate (a type of biopsy) of the mass to try and determine whether he thinks it should be removed. Personally, I try to never remove external growths on my pets as they often serve a purpose.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
