We wanted to take some extra time to address the issues of the pet food recall. Before information started hitting the media we at Pet Wellbeing started to receive customer questions regarding our natural cat and dog products that help in cases of kidney failure and liver failure.
After information regarding the tainted food started to come to light we understood why. Pet who have consumed the tainted food are showing signs of kidney failure and liver problems.
We would like to tell you a bit about the support products we offer and share some customer feed back with you.
First I would like to start by saying that you should be working with your vet no matter what treatment method you chose. Your vet will know up to date information on the recalled product and be able to talk you through your pet's condition. Even if they do not support your decision to use a natural product they will be able to monitor your pets progress and provide additional dietary recommendations.Our first product called Tripsy is for dogs with any kidney issues.
The herbal formulation works to help support the kidneys in times were they are in crisis. Tripsy is not a cure for kidney failure. Unfortunately once kidney damage is done it is not reversible. The kidneys are not able to regenerate. What Tripsy does is to help the kidneys to do the job they are new labouring to do.
- Stone Root: Diuretic, anti-inflammatory, acts as tonic for the capillaries, prevents kidney calculi formation in dogs.
- Breakstone Parsley: Diuretic, soothes irritated or inflamed tissues.
- Wild Hydrangea: Urinary antiseptic, soothes irritated tissues and reduces formation of urinary calculi in dogs.
- Gravel Root: A restorative and cleansing herb that acts especially on a dog’s genitourinary organs.
- Marshmallow: Anti-inflammatory; controls bacterial infection; soothes and softens irritated tissues.
- Oregon grape: Contains alkaloids (berberine, berbamine, and hydrastine), resins and tannins; has demonstrated antibiotic and immunostimulatory activities.
- Purple Coneflower: Inhibits bacterial formation of hyaluronidase, induces production of interferon; alterative, immunostimulant, promotes lymphocyte activities and stimulates phagocytosis.
These herbs help to balance urinary output fight infections in essence helping the kidneys do their normal job. Tripsy can be used in conjunction with fluid therapy. If your pet is taking additional pharmaceuticals check with your vet before starting an additional product.Another product we offer for dogs is Milk Thistle.
Milk Thistle works to support the liver. Milk Thistle is a unique herb that carry help to regenerate liver tissue as well as detoxifying the liver. Milk thistle is recommended for pets with liver problems as well as pets that are taking heavy pharmaceuticals and need to support the liver functions. Milk Thistle is a great companion product and can be used with most other products. NHV Milk Thistle contains only the milk thistle herb that has been distilled in a glycerin base. This product is alcohol free and is very easy to administer its liquid form.
We have been receiving customer messages for weeks now.
"My cat, Kate, has been having problems since last July with vomiting, lethargy, peeing outside the box, and not eating. The vet and I thought it might be a UTI and we treated her with antibiotics. She's a little better, but is still very thin and is refusing most wet cat food. I think that she knows the food is bad and wish I'd been more perceptive earlier on. No doubt that the pet food companies are poisoning rats and the poisoned rats are falling into the food vats somehow. She really only wants baby food, so she gets some Gerber's chicken and I'm taking all the wet cat food back to the store. I just ordered a bottle of Tripsy and am hoping that this will be just the ticket. I just can't afford the high prices the vets want to treat her - they want thousands! I'll be sure to contact this site after treatment to let everyone know how she's doing! Thanks and wish me luck!"
The feed back on both products has been great. Pets are see their symptoms visibly reduce in the first 2 weeks of starting the products. There are some pets who will not be able to bounce back from their illness, but the feed back is still positive.
"My cat, Juno has been taking Tripsy now for three weeks. I feel that she will not be with us for much longer, but I just wanted to say that she has been more like her old self recently. I thank you for giving her and us some extra quality time."
We wanted to highlight these products so that people know that there are alternatives out there that work. In a time where pharmaceuticals are the first thing that is offered it is nice to know you have other options.
I hope this extra information has been helpful to people who are making health care decisions for their pets.
