Protecting Our Pets

From the Editor

As a devoted pet owner I try my best, as I am sure we all do, to give my pets the proper nutrition, shelter, and love so they are happy, and healthy.

However, I know that there are times where pet owners are unaware of the hazards we are exposing them to, either through human food “treats” or an unsafe environment.

For instance, many of us are familiar with chocolate as a potentially fatal food… but did you know that even turkey can cause many health-threatening conditions?

Before you indulge your pet in any special foods, be sure to check out our list of harmful foods.

Foods that Kill - Common Treats that Can Harm Your Pet

Keeping good care of our pets doesn’t only mean supervising what they eat. It also means keeping a watchful eye on their surroundings, which is especially important during the winter months.

I know many people keep outdoor pets inside the garage or basement when it’s cold outside; mistakenly assuming it is a safe haven. However, there are likely many potential hazards awaiting your pet in this often overlooked place. Be sure to find out what to secure or remove before allowing your pet to spend time in the garage or in the basement.

Much like humans, pets’ bodies need a little extra attention due to harsh winter weather conditions as well. Their immune system, coat and skin are especially vulnerable to infection and ailments, so we should all pamper our pooches and kitties during the winter months and pay careful attention to these noted areas.

Keeping Fluffy Frostbite-free - Protecting Your Pet during Winter Weather

Keeping your pet’s health in top condition can go a long way in preventing other illnesses and problems. For instance, did you know that liver, kidney, and heart inflammation are often triggered by poor dental hygiene and periodontal disease?

Oral health is of utmost importance in pets, just as it is for humans. Unfortunately, dental health should be a very large concern to pet owners, as more than half of all pets suffer from gum disease and other related problems.

However, there are many steps you can take to provide your pet with proper care, and we have compiled some helpful suggestions to begin or enhance your pet’s oral care routine.

Foods that Kill! Common Treats that Can Harm Your Pet

Optimizing Your Pet’s Health Through Proper Nutrition

Most pet owners don’t know that their refrigerators are likely to contain common human treats that can kill or severely harm their pets!

While for pet owners the passing holiday season means overeating and an expanded waistline, for our pets, being overindulged with too many table scraps could result in a fatal outcome.

Recently, the ASPCA ran a report on toxic foods for pets, and for most of us, the foods that can hurt your pet are a shocking surprise.

Brushing Up on Your Pet's Dental Hygiene

Optimizing Your Pet’s Health Through Proper Nutrition

Did you know that dogs and cats need dental care as much as we do? Just as dental health is linked with overall health in humans, so is true with cats and dogs.

With Pet Dental Care Month approaching in February, it’s important that pet owners know that when proper care is not given to their gums and teeth, our pet’s body becomes vulnerable to disease and illness.

Conditions such as liver, kidney, heart inflammation and infection are many times triggered by poor dental hygiene and periodontal disease. That being said, dental disease is one of the most common forms of disease in pets.

More than half of all pets suffer from gum disease, calculus and dental problems. The numbers are slightly higher in dogs where it is estimated that by age three, 80% of dogs develop symptoms of oral disease. In cats, 70% develop dental problems by their third year of life.

Keeping Fluffy Frostbite-free

Optimizing Your Pet’s Health Through Proper NutritionFrom inclement weather to hectic travel schedules, your pooch or kitty has probably endured some stress as the holidays wrapped up and the full, blustery force of the winter season kicked in.

Restoring health after illness or guarding against harsh winter conditions can go a long way in the well-being of your pet.

Perhaps your pet had to be boarded while you and your family left home this past holiday season, or it was exposed to new animals (and potential illness) while visiting distant friends or relatives.
To boost immunity and energy levels after such conditions, consider supplementing your pet’s diet with PetAlive KC-Defense, an effective respiratory tonic to prevent against Kennel Cough and other viral infections.

“Hi. My question is regarding your pet products. I was wondering if you have something that would help with kidney function in a dog? Namely, if he were to eat something toxic like grapes or any other substance that would produce kidney failure. Thank you for your time. "

— Nichole


Hi Nichole,

We can recommend our Kidney Dr. remedy. Although this is aimed at human use, it is just as safe and effective when used in pets. Kidney Dr. is a 100% herbal remedy containing herbs known for their ability to improve the functioning of both healthy and diseased kidneys and act as a tonic for the entire urinary system.

The recommended dosage for a small dog is 2-3 drops given 2-3 times a day.

For more info, please go to:
Kidney Dr.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Warm Regards,

The PetAlive Team at Native Remedies


“I have a 10 yr. old female dog. She is constantly chewing. Her eyes have always watered. When she breathes, you can hear a sound that sounds like congestion (rattling sound). I assume that she has allergies. Her breath is horrible. (She does need her teeth cleaned). I’m wondering if (for one thing) the extremely bad breath is from her overall health. Is there a product that she can use for overall health?"

— Melissa


Hi Christine,

We certainly understand your concern for your pet and we commend you on your research into natural alternatives to prescription medications. It could be that the bad breath is a symptom as well as due to bad dental hygiene. We can recommend PetAlive Immunity and Liver Support to help boost her immune system and prevent infection. It will also improve her energy levels. We can also recommend our PetAlive Gumz-n-Teeth to help with her dental hygiene, but we would still recommend taking her to have her teeth cleaned.

Our Feature Story:
Daisy’s DilemmaOptimizing Your Pet’s Health Through Proper Nutrition

Recently, we received an email from Dawna, a customer who was using our PetAlive Cushex Drops for her English Bulldog, Daisy. 12-year-old Daisy was experiencing some painful symptoms. We saw an opportunity where we could really help one of our furry friends – here’s what happened.

Dawna’s Letter to Native Remedies

Dear Native Remedies,

Several months ago I purchased Cushex drops after spending hundreds of dollars on test after test for my 12-year-old English Bulldog.

Shortly after I rescued her six years ago, the symptoms began: hair loss, pendulous belly, urination, excessive hunger...Each vet had a new theory, but none was accurate. Finally this year the final round of tests confirmed Cushings Disease. Then I researched the pharmaceutical options... not much better than the disease itself.

 It was at this point that I found your product. Having used homeopathic treatments for 20+ years, I was excited to try this, but frankly, thought I would be requesting a refund. I am about to finish the third bottle.

Although Daisy has not been cured, she seems to have stabilized, and most important, she is energetic and happy. Herein lies my dilemma, which you may not be able to help me with.

My 13 year old daughter has been hospitalized since 3/06, which has not only been stressful emotionally, but financially draining. The hospital is 3 1/2 hours away from where we live. I am not able to replenish this product for Daisy, and fear that without it, she will loose ground. I am happy to document this situation with a doctor’s letter. Are you able to help us continue to provide this product for Daisy?

Dawna P.

How We Helped

Daisy, Dawna’s 12-year-old English Bulldog, was obviously responding well to the Cushex Drops. To help continue her improvement, Native Remedies sent Dawna and Daisy a one-year supply of Cushex Drops (12 bottles), as well as a request to keep us updated on her progress.

Dawna promptly replied and was happy to promise updates on Daisy’s improvement. Her reply also contained the following statement, “I can not tell you how much this means. My faith in human kind plummets sometimes; you have reinstated it. Thank you!”

We were happy to help Dawna and Daisy out and we will keep you informed


We Wish You Good Health!
