Natural Pet Care Products – Do They Work?

It seems like there are hundreds of pet care products out there: but which ones are best for your pet. I am sure that like me you only want the very best for your pet. Therefore, here are my opinions about natural care pet products, why they are better than other prescribed medicines and why your pet will benefit from being given natural products to treat their illnesses.

I know that it surprised me when I learned that these products really do work and, best of all, work far better than many other remedies on the market today. I guess that it is only natural to want the best for your pet and when it comes to their health, you are probably just like me and want something that does not have unpleasant side effects. That’s why I use products that are based on herbal remedies. That is right; the same herbal remedies that have been proven to cure what ails you also work just as effectively for your pets. It is just a matter of getting the right ones for the job.

There is a great benefit from using natural medicines; they do not contain any unnecessary chemicals. If you get some expensive tablets from the vet, they will probably contain some artificial drug to treat your pet’s illness. Add to that, the mixture of other ingredients that are in the tablets such as binding agents and I am sure you can see that your pet will be swallowing many artificial agents. On the other hand, natural pet care products do not have any of these additives in them. I know that these are a better option for treating my pet and I recommend them to anyone who has a pet that needs treatment.

So, natural remedies are a better option than other prescribed medicines because they do not give any harmful side effects to your pet. In addition, herbs can be given to your pet to help prevent them from getting ill without running the risk of long-term damage that artificial drugs can often cause.

The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Natural Pet Supplements

When it comes to natural pet supplements, everyone has their own opinion. Some say they are very essential for dogs, some say they are not, some say they only give short term results, and some say they give long term results. So, naturally, a lot of dog owners are confused. So, here is an attempt to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about pet supplements.

What are pet natural supplements?
They are dietary supplements which can be helpful for your dog. Homeopathic veterinarians believe that natural herbs resemble many of the foods dogs would eat in the wild. There is a growing body of clinical support for this approach.

What do they contain?
Natural pet supplements, as the name clearly suggests, contain natural substances which have therapeutic effects and are essential for your dog’s health.

What do they do?
For dogs that respond, they have the potential to improve your dog’s immune system, strengthen its vital organs and improve their functioning, increase its disease resistance capacity, cleanse its body, neutralize the free radicals that damage its body, keep blood sugar and blood pressure under control, and prevent a number of health problems. In short – they help your dog live a long, healthy life.

Are they safe?
Yes, they are. High quality natural pet supplements usually contain substances that are approved by the FDA and so they are perfectly safe for your dog. The only thing you need to look for is that the product meets the guidelines set by the DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health Education Act).

But the market is filled with such supplements. How do I choose the right one?
It is a very good question. As you know, if you want the best results, you should choose the best product. When it comes to pet natural supplements, the quality of the product is directly proportional to the quality of its ingredients. So, you should look for a product that contains natural substances like Astragalus membranaceous (Huang Qi), Viscum album (mistletoe), Echinacea purpurea, Withania somnifera (Indian ginseng), Sylibum marianus (milk thistle), and Uncaria tormentosa (cat’s claw). A number of clinical studies have confirmed that these substances are highly potent and completely safe to use.

Should I make any changes to my dog’s diet?
It depends on what kind of diet your dog is on. As long as you are using a premium food that is AAFCO certified and the label says “nutritional adequacy was validated by animal feeding tests based on protocols from the American Association of Feed Control Officials.” Also, you should make sure your dog drinks plenty of clean water and urinates properly. Home made foods may not do as good a job of providing a dog with the nutrients needed, unless prepared under the guidance of a veterinary nutritionist.

How do I give these supplements to my dog?
Most of these natural pet supplements come in the form of capsules. Depending on your dog’s preference, you can either give these capsules directly or mix them with dog food. Since they do not have a repugnant odor or taste, they can be easily mixed with food and given to your dog.

Are these supplements meant for short-term use or long term use?
Without a doubt, they are meant for long-term use. Depending on your pet’s size, age, and health, you should give an appropriate dose of these pet natural supplements every day without fail. This will help your dog stay young, active, and healthy for a long time.

Are these supplements costly?
No, they are not. A month’s supply of these dietary supplements will only cost around $40. Considering their benefits, it can be worth the price for dogs that respond to their use.

Should I consult my vet before giving these natural pet supplements to my dog?
Yes, you should. Your vet is the person who knows your dog’s health condition better than anyone else. So, you should consult him before giving any dietary supplement to your dog. This way, he will be able to monitor the results over a period of time and advise accordingly.
