I have a few things that I am never without around the house for my pets.
A good Probiotic like Fortiflora. I have a cat with Eosinophilic granuloma which is an auto immune disorder of the skin. We tried all kinds of things the vet recommended including large doses of Prednisone. What has worked is Fortiflora...it is an immune system booster. When your gut is working better your whole body is stronger. I use it when ever my pets are stressed or exposed to anything no good for them ...as in ate a mouse! Drank from the stream. Got into someones garbage, having loose stools, etc. I have also heard that adding a little ground sage to their food is not a bad idea if they have eaten something nasty.
The next item I always keep on hand is Rescue® Remedy liquid. It acts as a sedative to reduce stress. I carry a small bottle in my purse in case of an accident as stress is very detrimental to an animal in cases of trauma or injury.
I started to get a red streak up my arm. I began putting the ASAP gel on it and drinking two tsp. a day and it was gone in 3-4 days. Usually cases like that end up on I.V. home antibiotic pumps for a week or two. Not fun.
Kitty got a shot of long acting Abx. and I soaked his toe in the ASAP and then put the gel on it as well...it is all healed up! This stuff is a really good antiseptic and kills most viruses and bacteria.
Their website is under construction but when they get it finished you can read about all the hospitals and research than has been done on this product. It is impressive.
OK, I'll get off my soap box now. I do not sell any of these products or profit in any way. I just wanted to share some of my favorite pet health products with my friends. I also bought VIP pet health insurance for Ryker and hope we never have to use it!
Good health and long life to all our furry friends!
Salvia - I saw a really nice Salvia up in Grand Rapids at the trial gardens last Fall. I might try it in my miserable little flower bed. Last summer nothing seemed...
