Gastric Distress and Other GI Disorders Affect Millions of Animals Each Year!
There are 5 common causes of gastric distress and immune diseases. The sooner you take a proactive position regarding them, the greater the likelihood your animal will be healthier and happier and live a full, disease-free life.
Common causes of unhealthy intestinal system
1.Weaned too Early – Most store bought kittens and puppies come from very large breeders. Frequently, they are weaned too soon. Mothers milk is essential to establishing a healthy immune system. If your kitten was not allowed to fully nurse, it may appear healthy when you buy it, but preemptive weaning is a primary suspect of disorders and diseases later in life, that seem to have no known cause.
2.Improper diet – Commercial Food – Today, a virtual epidemic of GI related health issues ranging from picky eaters, eating disorders, gastrointestinal upset can be traced directly to commercial pet food! According to industry statistics, GI upset is the number 3 reason people are taking their animals to the vet.
Domestication and convenience has removed your pets natural diet. One would hope that we could rely on pet food manufacturers to make sure the ingredients in pet foods are beneficial and nutritious, but unfortunately they are not.
Your pet’s wild relatives eat fresh kill, and supplement this by eating microflora and microorganisms from vibrant chemical-free grasses and soils. Collectively they are called soil based organisms (SBOs). The closer you come to duplicating your pets natural diet the sooner it will get healthy and stay healthy. You can substitute fresh kill with high quality (antibiotic and hormone free) raw or lightly cooked meats, chicken, and fish.
In the wild, pets do not eat grains, heavily processed low quality overcooked meats, meats containing injected hormones and antibiotics, or farm raised fish. Yet, these are among the primary ingredients in most commercial cat foods. It might surprise you to know that many commercial pet food manufacturers actually spray dry foods with rancid, recycled restaurant cooking oils, just to give them some flavor!
Note: Due to decades of chemical treatments, it is no longer advisable to let your pet eat grass and dirt. Yet they need SBOs more than ever! Pet Flora© consists of 29 active SBOs* scientifically formulated to provide your pet with these much needed microflora.
Your pet would also benefit from digestive enzymes to assist in the digestion and absorption of essential nutrients. Super Pet Enzymes was carefully formulated with your cats digestive needs in mind.
3. Chlorinated drinking water – No human or animal should drink chlorinated water. Not only does it contain amounts of chlorine comparable to swimming pools, ammonia is also added to act as a buffer. Give your animal filtered water, free from chemical residues. Make sure to replenish it twice a day.
4. Household Cleaning Agents – People don’t realize that the more convenient the cleaning agents, the more likely they contain toxic chemicals. Your pets are getting full whiffs. Additionally, if your pet is lying on the flooring, it is absorbing these chemicals through its skin and paws.
Natural is always best. Fortunately there are a lot of natural cleaning formulas available that use more gentle ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and more.
5. Stress – Like most humans and animals, our pets prefer peace and quite to yelling or screaming. Travel, leaving familiar territory, beyond which are unfamiliar noises, different air quality, humidity, water, even food- any one of which can throw off your pets delicate GI balance. Also pets are very empathetic and us, as owners, can transfer unnecessary stress to our animals.
