Thank you for the opportunity to be of service to you and your family.
By Diane McLaren C.C.Ir., R.N.C.P.
They love you unconditionally, play with you, console you, protect you, keep
you company, rarely complain and they never talk back to you. You love
them back and welcome them as members of your family.
So just as you have begun to take a more pro-active and holistic approach to
your health, many pet owners are now discovering the benefits for their pets too.
A diet that reflects enhanced nutrition through attention to what you eat,
and what your pet eats on a daily basis is important. Adding
natural herbal supplements help to strengthen not only your health, but your pet’s too!
Herbs also fight illness!
Your pet relies on you to see to their needs including attention, quality foods, fresh clean water, exercise and their general health. As an
integral part of your family, you want your pet to enjoy great
long-term health and this month I want to share a few easy tips for prevention,
for every day, and for limited periods of time for certain conditions or
- Healthy pets generally do not incur expensive veterinary care costs
- Healthy pets have more energy and live longer
- Healthy pets enjoy a better quality of life long into old age
“So what can I do to help my pet?” “Can I really use herbs for
Your pet will respond very well to the correct selection of quality herbs
because our herbs are natural plant based products that your pet's body system
will recognize as food. (Your system benefits for the very same reasons)
Pets are like us, and they benefit tremendously from adding a few herbal
supplements to insure optimal health and vitality. Herbs can be used in liquid
or capsules format, just open and mix with their foods. Tablets can be crushed and
mixed with foods. Chewable, they usually love them as treats.
Dosage is according to weight. Usually 1 capsule a day/25 lb. Note that
liquid extracts can be applied directly to paws and the belly too).
Tip 1 - Provide Quality Pet Food
Just as we humans are discovering that the highly refined foods are hazardous
to our health, our pets are experiencing similar reactions from the general
processed foods widely available at most supermarkets. In the wake of the
massive pet food recall, attention to pet food ingredients is essential.
It's "fun" to share our table foods with the pets but when you do,
introducing foods your pet has a very hard time digesting. I do not
represent nor distribute pet food products but I do recommend you consider natural
products based on natural wholesome ingredients. The cost is a bit higher,
but your pet will be much healthier and medical costs much lower.
This applies to humans and pets alike: avoid any product that contains
by-products, chemical preservatives artificial flavours or artificial colours.
I feed our 10-year old Beagle (Stanly)
available in Canada and the USA. If not available in your town, they make a good
Tip 2 - Provide Fresh, Clean Water
Always ensure you pet has fresh clean drinking water available. I like
to add a few drops of Liquid Chlorophyll to their drinking water. They
like it too!
- The spearmint flavor helps reduce “doggy” breath
- Gives daily nutrients and minerals
- Very mild cleansing
- Improves digestion and colon, cleans and builds the blood
alkaline balance and it's great to avoid
burning the lawn
Tip 3 - Everyday Nutritional Support
A well-rounded herb which you can think of as general
mineral is Morinda (aka Noni), my top pick for pets of all ages
and specifically for puppies up to 3 years and elderly animals
because it supports the
immune, nervous, respiratory, muscular and skeletal systems.
- Help for those pets who are excitable
- Provides bone support for growing puppies
- Supports for elderly pets who need help climbing the stairs, or
sofa, or simply to breathe better
A great everyday powerhouse of health building herbs is
Zambroza for its remarkable ability to strengthen and build the immune system.
With over 138 anti-inflammatory properties,
it's the best choice for anti-oxidant features that combat the effects of stress
and fatigue plus its anti-viral, anti fungus and anti-bacterial properties.
Tip 4 - Natural Heartworm Care
Spring through fall is the season for heartworm and the combination of using
both our High Potency Garlic and Black Walnut Extract
will work wonders. I do this for 6 months, from ground’s thaw to first
Our High Potency Garlic is odor controlled, not odorless. It is
essential to have the odor which is caused by one of the active ingredient
called allicin for maximum therapeutic benefits. In order to control the
garlic smell, the garlic is coated with chlorophyll. This way, you get the
full allicin potential and the therapeutic benefits. (I grind this with a
mortar & pestle and mix with food and my dogs never have ‘garlic’ breath)
The Black Walnut Extract is liquid and a few drops mixed in the food is all it
- Oxygenates the blood
- Controls parasites, ringworm, worms and toxins
s tooth enamel
- Antiseptic and healing properties
- Supports the thyroid
CAUTION: NEVER GIVE BLACK WALNUT TO A HORSE – IT'S TOXIC!
Tip 5 - Addressing Digestive Flatulence (Gas)
It works for people and it's great for the pets. For
digestion/flatulence (gas) Garden Essence and/or
Stomach Comfort are great choices that provide instant relief for you
and your pet. Even when eating good quality food, some pets are gassy so by
simply adding Garden Essence (open and sprinkle to their food), it really helps
them digest their food better, therefore eliminating gas.
Our dog Stanley loves the Chewable Stomach Comfort, we use them as a treat,
and he will do his “tricks” to get one. They also help with gas and digestion.
On the other hand, Elmo does better with Marshmallow and Pepsin
while Isaiah has great success with Garden Essence.
Just as in people, there is no one right answer so you may have to experiment
to discover which works best for yours. Remember, these are plant based
herbs and your pets body will ingest them safely because they are real foods.
Tip 6 - Little Wet Accidents
It happens and when it does, there are steps you can take to help your pet
overcome the problem. For younger animals, if they need to urinate
frequently and it is not because of an infection, the Chinese
combination KB-C helps to internally strengthen the urinary system. It
can also be rubbed in circular motion on puppy’s belly.
For older animals with a leaky bladder Cornsilk strengthens
their bladder and removes inflammation. If your pet is suffering from an
infection, Cranberry and Buccu plus
Echinacea & Golden Seal will clear the infection and help
prevent further reoccurrences.
- Strengthens the urinary system in young pets
- Strengthens the bladder in older pets
- Clears infection and helps prevent further reoccurrences
Tip 7 - Natural Clean Ups Around The House Just Got Easier
No matter how hard we try to care for our pets, accidents happen at some point
and for cleaning up naturally, there is no better product than Nature’s
Fresh Spray. In fact, this product is great for a wide
variety of typical cleaning needs at home and in the car.
- Adresses pet odors plus those created by foods, smoke, urine,
feces, vomit and mildew

other organic substances
- Safe for all fabrics and not harmed by water
- Unscented, non-irritating, hypoallergenic

“I wanted to mention how great Nature’s Fresh Spray has worked on his (the
new puppy) messes! We’ve even used it on carpet, bedding, bathroom
floor…anywhere! And it’s gotten out all the stains and the smells! I’m really
quite impressed by the product!” E.A. Mississauga
