Your pet’s Quality Nutritional Supplements and What You should be looking for

A short time ago, we discussed the issue of salmonella in the news and the effects it can have not only on us but on our furry companions as well.

Included in that discussion was a brief reference to the importance of dietary supplements. Well, let it be known, we have lived enough of life as well as seen and heard a great deal in the living experience that it would be very difficult to shock us.

Here’s what happened..

Well, we are not shocked, but very surprised at the amount of email we received with questions around supplements for pets, and whether or not a particular supplement was good or better than another.

The first inquiry came from “Barbara” and approximately 77 more followed. We say approximately because they are still dribbling in. That, we must admit, is quite a surprise.

We have tried to answer all individually but please accept our apologies that the nerve this issue has touched has made doing so a bit cumbersome, so allow us to share a bit of information for one and all to read. So… if this is a repeat in some ways please bear with us.

Quality Nutritional Supplements for Your Dog:
In addition to the best diet you can provide, one of the BIG secrets to keeping your dog healthy and combating the hundreds of toxins is with a QUALITY supplement. There are some essential supplements that should be part of every animal’s daily diet such as Antioxidants and Essential Fatty Acids that support healthy skin and coat as well as the digestive tract – which happens to be the first line of defense for the immune system. Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics are vital for good digestion, optimal nutrition and in maintaining a proper balance of disease-fighting bacteria in the digestive tract.

Here is what you should be looking for
1. When choosing a natural supplement, read the label and be sure that none of these are on the label: No wheat, No Soy, No Dairy, No Sugar, No Artificial Ingredients, No Additives and NO Fillers.

2. If you can’t pronounce what you see written on the label, then what you see written is probably NOT a natural ingredient. ALL ingredients should be derived from Natural Sources. Some of the more common Natural ingredients include Vitamins, Minerals, Flax, Fish Oil, Amino Acids, in addition to naturally derived animal and plant related components. This includes ingredients such as Herbs, Mushrooms, Colostrum, Glucosamine, and Digestive Enzymes.

3. AVOID BHA, BHT and Ethoxyquin whenever present. You want your supplement to be NATURALLY preserved. Vitamin E and being “air tight” is the preservative of choice.

4. DON’T use supplements that are chemically flavored or colored as they are linked to cancer and several chronic canine diseases. Artificial color and flavors are added as a way to produce a “cheaper” supplement that is more “appealing” to consumers and extending shelf life. So, if you are to give ANY supplement to your dog, ensure that it is NATURAL.

Let’s Be Clear

We are not here to knock any supplement, but as many of our subscribers know, we have our preference out of the many available and for very good reason.

Dr. Jones is offering a supplement that is above and beyond most if not all that you will find available and is 100% Natural and certified toxin free.

If you look at the listed ingredients and the explanations as to why each is included, and we suggest that you do, you will appreciate the distinct difference compared to other supplements.

In addition, ALL ingredients are Human Grade – which means a Higher Standard than almost ALL other dog supplements.

Once the ingredients are blended, they are tested again to ensure they match the label claims and that happens before formulating the product by an independent 3rd party lab.

You should also take comfort in knowing that all manufacturing takes place in an FDA approved facility and complies with the official standards known as “Good Manufacturing Practices” (GMPs).

Here is a wonderfully precious unsolicited letter that we are proud to share with you:
I just wanted to let you know that I was a little skeptical about
your dog food supplement and I questioned myself why I wanted to
be suckered into something like this but truthfully I am totally
amazed at the results I have seen in my Beagle-terrier mix 7yr.
old female dog.

Just to give you a little background info. We live on a dairy farm
and my husband ran over her and broke her pelvic area with one of
our very large tractors and I thought that this was the end of her.
We took her to the Vet and with a lot of meds, pain killers and
patience she got well. Again 2yrs. ago she went paralyzed in her
hind quarters and off to the Vet we went. Somehow this miracle dog
pulled through and walked but not quite the same. Lately she has
been not so playful and laying around a lot, that is when I told
my husband that I found this Canadian Vet’s dog supplement I wanted to try.

My husband & I can hardly believe this is the same dog.

Thank you for recommending such a wonderful product. ”

Take a look at this one:
“I have a nine year old Toy Poodle that was having some stiffness
in her back legs. Since she has been on your Canine Health Formula
she runs up and down the porch stairs like a puppy. She is always
game for a walk and isn’t stiff in her back legs when we are finished
walking. I love the peace of mind that comes with knowing I have the
proper supplements in one easy jar to add to her food. She is a
pretty picky eater but has still eaten her food with the supplement
mixed in. I add a little water so it makes a gravy and she eats it
right up.

Thanks for all the good your do for precious animals and the
peace of mind you give us owners with your book and information.

J. Bradley, Salt Lake City, Utah”

Here is Another
I read the testimonials from others about how their older
dogs were young and vibrant again, but never in a million years
thought that it would really have that much of an effect on my
dog. Dozer is a 102 pound 3 year old American Bulldog. He is
pretty active for a big guy, but as it goes for Bulldogs, he
isn’t much of a runner and is about 10 pounds over weight. I
walk him every night along with my 1 year old Stella, who is a
Pit/Lab mix. She is VERY active, but let me tell you that in
just the few weeks that he has been taking your supplement we
have noticed a significant difference in him. He has some problems
with his back right leg, from a car accident when he was about 2.
He limps on it, if he has been walking too long, or if it is
really cold outside.

Well, in just the first couple of weeks he was actually running
on his walk trying to keep up with Stella. He has been acting
like a puppy now, jumping, rolling around on his back, and just
overall a really spry boy! He has not been limping hardly at all,
(but then I have also been trying your massage techniques too),
and last week my Mom actually said I need to quit giving him
those supplements because his testosterone seems to be escalating,
and he has been driving her crazy laying on his back talking
(dog talk) constantly throughout the day while I am at work!
I told her that he is fixed, so this shouldn’t be the case at all!

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that your supplement is WONDERFUL!
Dozer and I would like to thank you, and also say that we love your
holistic approach to give our animals a better, longer life!!!

Thanks again-
Mary E, Leavenworth, Washington”

Want to Know The Reason Why?

One of the reasons among the many that we are so thrilled with the Dr. Jones product is an ingredient we have done a great deal of research on.

Dr. Jones is really ahead of the curve. Before we tell you what it is, you might well be interested in this ingredient for yourself and your other two legged loved ones.

This is too good not to share. Sometimes it takes time for things to come full circle, but modern day scientists have re-discovered an absolute miracle of nature that has been around for at least five thousand years. According to more than a few credentialed health practitioners, conventional medicine has tried to hide what is called the “first food of life” and the true key to living a disease free life, or as close to it as possible, from the general public. It is Bovine Colostrum.

Colostrum is so complex and the benefits are so exciting and widespread we are only beginning to understand how it all works and all the beneficial possibilities. Scientific studies reveal colostrum may help prevent certain types of cancers and..

1. Maintains a healthy gastrointestinal tract, the key to a disease-free life
2. Maintains nutrient absorption at a peak rate
3. Accelerates healing of body tissues
4. Facilitates increase of bone mass
5. Excess body fat is burned off while lean muscle tissue grows
6. Newly found energy replaces fatigue and lethargy
7. Supports vital factors for your body’s ability to heal itself
8. Protects against infections and common health problems that people accept living with
9. Unsurpassed immune system stimulation and modulation
10. Antioxidant and anti-aging properties that keep you younger longer
11. Beneficial treatment for diabetes by balancing blood sugar levels
12. Ameliorates or completely eliminates symptoms of cryptosporidiosis
13. Controls acute and chronic diarrhea

Before 1950, colostrum was intensively studied and appreciated for the miracle benefits to be had from its powers to build the immune system.

Then, as a tragic consequence of the developing and emerging pharmaceutical industrial complex, interest in natural remedies took a back seat, almost disappearing except for a few die-hard scientists in the holistic movement. The truth was and is that there is more money in developing and selling sulfa drugs, antibiotics and other synthetic drugs.

There have been thousands of scientific studies done with Bovine Colostrum and that includes human clinical trials done worldwide. Bovine Colostrum has been found to be both a safe and therapeutic nutritional supplement that will help maintain your health and even the health of your pet. Colostrum is a multifunctional complex of bioactive ingredients produced by mammals for mammals.

If you walk into a natural foods and supplements store, you will see they have their shelves stocked floor to ceiling with products that are nearly all derived from plants.

Generally speaking, most of the supplements have only one function and, it is important to note, most of these plant-derived supplements or herbs have little if any scientific research to back up their health claims.

The same is not true of Bovine Colostrum because there are thousands of scientific studies from all around the world and every leading research institution attesting to the health benefits of colostrum and its many ingredients.

Even though you may not be familiar with it, it’s been around for thousands of years and is considered to be one of the most important nutritional supplements available for enhancing and helping in tissue repair, joint-related problems, allergy and skin difficulties, neutralizing poisonous toxins, fighting viruses and bacteria, balancing intestinal flora, and, in general, boosting and strengthening the immune system.

Athletes who use colstrum experience an increase in strong lean muscle mass with more definition along with greater aerobic capacity, endurance, and faster recovery. The presence of Leptin found in Bovine Colostrum is a protein hormone with important effects in regulating body weight, aid in appetite suppression, metabolism and reproductive function.

Dr. Zoltan Ronan in The American Journal of Natural Medicine, March 1998, referred to the growth factors in colostrum by citing a study that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (323:1-6, 1990). The study cited was done by Dr. Daniel Rudman who treated 26 men between 61 and 80 years of age with GH. Dr. Rudman found a decrease in body fat and an increase in bone density and lean muscle mass, along with thicker, more elastic skin, bringing Dr. Rudman to conclude: “We’ve reversed 10 to 20 years of the aging process. fat diminished, muscle tissue increased.”

Please forgive the length of this post but we are very passionate about the benefits of bovine colostrum and wish to share with you a note from another subscriber, Susie, and just a few of many others.

Susie, an oncology nurse in south Florida on behalf of her Corgi dogs writes,
I wanted to let you know that you are the best of friends, as far as E and D and Me are concerned. Miss Dix looks a bit better tonight. It must be the Bovine Colostrum. She is much more comfortable, and I think her skin is healing. Such wonderful news!
The Happiest of New Years to you!

Dr. B.S. Austin DVM, Longwood, Florida writes,
My use of bovine colostrum is based on good science, experience and common sense as I was introduced to veterinary medicine while working on a dairy farm during high school and later as a milk test supervisor for the University of Georgia Dairy Department. I have been a veterinarian for 52 years – the last 44 years in small animal practice – and have been involved in numerous clinical trials. I have seen old, favorite treatment modalities replaced with new and better protocols. The use of bovine Colostrum in my practice has favorably impacted a greater diversity of diseases than any other product except the ‘silver bullet’, cortisone.

Jake, a 125 pound Rottweiler, was presented with a sarcoma half the size of a tennis ball just lateral to the fetlock. Excision necessitated transpositioning the skin to cover the defect. Ten days post surgery the graft had failed, and the exposed tissue appeared to be recurring tumor. Treatment consisted of debriding dead tissue, two capsules of colostrums twice a day, and powdered colostrum liberally applied under bandage to the wound every other day. Healing was complete after six weeks. Six months later there has been no evidence of recurrence of tumor, and no further surgery was needed.

Nancy is one of those unfortunate women who are addicted to picking up strays. In spite of reasonably good care, antibiotics and appropriate vaccines, she was continually plagued with upper respiratory infections in both kittens and puppies, non-responsive to anything except tincture of time. Addition of colostrum to her regimen had kept Nancy happy for the
last ten months.

For about six months now, we have been seeing an unusual number of cats with recurring cystitis in spite of various antibiotics or diets. Approximately two months ago, we started giving these cats one capsule of colostrum twice a day, maintaining them on the cystitis diet and discontinuing antibiotics. To date all have responded (at least 2-3 per week).

The most gratifying results have been in ‘curing’ inflammatory bowel disease and controlling the many forms of allergic dermatitis/otitis/pododermatitis and the accompanying yeast and/or bacterial infections. Clients continue to amaze me with their reports of the improved quality of life in their senior citizen arthritic dogs and cats.

Ulla Pedersen, Director, Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary and Eldercare Hospice, Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Pet Health and Elderly Pets writes,
Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to caring for elderly animals and, at the end of life, the Sanctuary offers compassionate hospice care. Prior to coming to the Sanctuary, most of our animals have suffered severe neglect, abuse and abandonment, and many are frail with a variety of ailments and disabilities.

The Sanctuary has always practiced high standards of nutritional care. However, about a year ago a holistic veterinarian suggested that the one real improvement we could make would be to add colostrum. I was concerned about the expense but decided to give it a try for our resident dogs. He was absolutely right. After only a few weeks, I noticed a marked improvement in their vitality. Minor eye and ear infections disappeared, wounds healed, and their coats gained a new luster. However, most of all they seemed to brighten in spirit. In fact, visitors often comment, “They all look so happy!” I feel that having added colostrum to their diets is a major improvement and has made a real difference in the lives of our senior dogs.

Michael McCann, ND, McCann Wellness Center, Cottage Grove, Minnesota writes,
One young 12 year old boy in California was suffering from a severe case of mucosa colitis and losing weight. He was literally dying. His doctor was planning surgery to remove his colon. His father called me and asked what could be done naturally. I recommended that he start taking double doses of colostrum. After 5 days, the bleeding from the rectum ceased, and within 7 days he began to have normal bowel movements. From that point on he has gained 32 pounds of weight. His parents were most delighted to see the change.

Here in our town of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, a local minister had uncontrollable diabetes and was taking three insulin injections daily. I shared with him the benefits of colostrum, and several months later he came back to me and was convinced that something besides injections had to be done. He purchased the colostrum, and within one week the miracle of healing kicked in and he was no longer giving himself insulin injections. Now he will not go without colostrum to regulate his insulin secretion. He is totally convinced of the benefits of taking colostrum.

Then his wife came to see me. She had a staphylococcal infection and numerous ulcer-type sores on her body. We placed her on double doses of colostrum and natural zinc ointment. Within two days the sores began to heal, and in one week they were gone. She had visited no less than two medical doctors who could not help her. Now her countenance has changed with joy and health restored.

A lady in our church had bouts of heavy asthma-like breathing. We put her on colostrum, and she noticed how easy her breathing became. She found that she has more energy and continues her daily schedule with ease and comfort.

Again, please accept our apologies for the length of this post but we wanted you to understand the benefits that we are so excited about.

Bovine Colostrum can benefit People as well as Pets!
