Milk: It does a body good. Milk thistle? It does a dog's body even better! This herbal medicine is known for helping your canine's liver. It can reduce inflammation and prevent disease in the organ. (petMD)
Great 1010 info on the basic supplements any dog would need at some point in their life. One of the standards for my oldest dog Chuck is chondroitin. Without chondroitin he def. feels the wear and tear after a day of playing with the younger dogs.I have a tried a few different sources for chonodrotin but those from Dr Kruger (not sure if this will work but you can copy and paste it) http://drkruger.com/healthy-joint-dog-formulaOne supplement I was surprised to not see on the list is honey. Especially if you live in an area where there is a lot of ragweed, honey can really help with dog allergies among a host of other items as well.Cool article PawNation! Keep em coming
Good read, but I think you might have missed one of the best canine health supplement in the world today - Kingly Pet Deer Atler Velvet.Have a look on what they do, it is pretty amazing. Their product naturally forms 390+ ingredients including - Omega 3 and 6 (Fish Oil is Omega), Glucosamine, Chondroitin, iron, calcium, protien, etc, etc, etc.My dog is on it and has never looked and moved this good!Cheers,J.
Most Dog and Cat foods don't have enough vitamins in there food.Check out www.nextgenpets.com They have natural nutritional supplements for cats and dogs that can be thrown in together with pet food, to help boost there immune system and prolong there quality of life.People take supplements all the time to add to their diet, and increase there quantity and quality of life .. so why not for your pets too?
is there anythingat all you can recommend for my chocolate lab that has allergies that are weather related - not food related?? other than steroids!!
My dog has fleas now I think he has ticks up by his ears and to make it worse he has worms, Im on a very fixed income to say the least what can I do to make this go away like yesterday, oh he wont go on the carpet and he hates going out side mostly when it starts to rain. I do not have a yard or a fenced in area what do I do for this little guy I know it has to be painful for him
try rage citrus drops for fleas on ur pets or rub an orange peel & the flees will jump off
Canned pumpkin and metamucil are not really good solutions...Try Slippery Elm (in grocery stores) instead for diarrhea. For constipation, fiber isn't a good answer...because dogs (carnivores) shouldn't eat high amounts of fiber as it isn't healthy for them....just try a different food (avoid ingredients like corn, artificial colors, and heavy grains) or add in some dog-safe homecooked or raw food regularly, guarentee your dog will have more normal bowels soon.
DO NOT give your cat hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting. There is no safe way to make a cat vomit at home. It must be taken to a Vet and given an injection (often Dexdomitor) to induce vomiting. Many cats have died from people assuming you can do this, And be very careful when giving it to a dog.
are these treatments good also for cats?
My dogs ate corn free natural dog food and took Shaklee nutrition right along with me. They lived a LONG time and were lean and healthy. In the end they outlived their brains and became confused but the vets said they outlived what would have been a natural life for them by about 3 years.
