Adrenal Harmony Gold for Dog Cushings 661822000144

Cushing's Disease

Cushing's disease results from an excess of adrenal gland hormones. It is a common side-effect of drugs such as corticosteroids, which are often prescribed to treat canine arthritis, allergies and other ailments. Cushing's disease can also result from a benign tumor on one of the adrenal glands or the pituitary gland.

Symptoms of Cushing's disease include:

  • Increased thirst and appetite
  • Frequent urination
  • Loss of hair
  • Skin problems
  • Panting
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased susceptibility to infections

If left untreated, Cushing's disease can lead to other conditions like diabetes and heart problems.

Conventional Therapies

Note: Your dog's Cushing’s could be caused by a corticosteroid drug - it may be possible to wean your dog off the drug; however, this must be performed under professional supervision to avoid complications. You can speak to your vet about this. Corticosteroids sometimes have side effects that are worse than the condition they were used to treat, and make your dog more susceptible to bacterial and viral infections. Every day, we get calls from customers looking for an alternative to steroid drugs.

Antineoplastic drugs - During its evaluation as an insecticide, a leading antineoplastic drug was discovered to have adrenocorticolytic effects. The most obvious and rapid response is a reduction in water intake, urine output, and appetite, which usually occur at the end of the initial course of therapy. Muscle strength and exercise tolerance improve over the first 3-4 weeks. Skin and hair coat changes take longer and the progress is variable. After the first re-evaluation, rechecks should be scheduled every 3-6 months for the rest of the pet’s life to determine whether the dose needs to be adjusted depending on the results of ACTH response testing. Overall, based on the results of three survival studies, the mean survival time of canines with pituitary-dependent Cushing’s disease, that were treated with this drug, is 24 to 30 months with a total range of 1 day to 13 years.

Surgery - If your dog's Cushing's disease was caused by a tumor, surgery might be an option. Only your vet is qualified to consult with about this option.

3-beta-hydroxysteroid-dehydrogenase drugs - These drugs have been shown to be an effective treatment for canine and feline Cushing’s syndrome. These are a synthetic, orally active steroid analogue. They act as a competitive inhibitor of the 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenate enzyme system and thereby inhibit the synthesis of cortisol and aldosterone as well as other steroids. The blockade is reversible and appears to be dose-related.

A word from our veterinarian:

It is important to note that long-term use of corticosteroid drugs (usually prescribed for inflammatory discomfort such as skin allergy or arthritis) can result in a rebound effect and excess production of cortisol by the adrenal glands can ensue. Excessive production of cortisol can also be caused by a tumor, either of the pituitary or the adrenal glands.

What is Adrenal Harmony Gold?

Adrenal Harmony Gold was developed by our holistic veterinarians to support your dog with Cushing's. The therapeutic actions of the ingredients are:  adaptogenic, antioxidant and will support the nervous system. These herbs are particularly suited to targeting the adrenal glands and its functions, but also exert an effect on the pituitary and hypothalamus glands. "Adaptogens" are a classification of herbs considered to support the adrenals, helping the body adapt naturally to stressors and produce normal, healthy levels of cortisol. Unlike drugs, adaptogens will not stimulate or depress adrenal function but, rather, help the adrenals normalize their hormone production. Antioxidants counter oxidative (free radical) damage that can lead to degeneration.

Together, the ingredients in Adrenal Harmony Gold target key cellular mechanisms to help maintain normal balance. 

What is Adrenal Harmony Gold used for?

Adrenal glands play a vital role in the health of your pet. The adrenal glands are two small glands situated on top of each kidney and they are involved in a multitude of physiological processes. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands are responsible for sending messages to the adrenals so they can secrete the right amount of hormones and maintain equilibrium within the body.

Some of the main adrenal gland functions are to:

  • Help the body respond to stress and inflammation through their production of corticosteroid hormones.
  • Play an important role in regulating water and electrolyte balance (affects urine output and thirst).
  • Produce hormones that affect blood sugar (affects appetite).

Adrenal Harmony Gold targets the HPA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal) axis to strengthen the body's internal feedback mechanisms. This in turn, can affect areas of the body influenced by the adrenal glands. Expect improved quality of life within the first two weeks of starting this formula. If you have not seen an improvement within two weeks, the dose may be safely increased. The "Directions" tab has more details.

Can my dog take Adrenal Harmony Gold with medications?

Do not give Adrenal Harmony Gold if your pet is taking blood-thinners. A veterinarian who has performed a complete medical check of your dog can help to establish safety of medications taken with other products or specific diets.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Life Gold - Dog Cancer Support 661822000021

Give your Dog the best chance at a High Quality of Life!

You have talked to your vet and they have told you what your options are.  For certain cancers there are conventional treatments that may help, but in most cases the prognosis is not good.   

As with human cancer, the precise causes of dog cancer are not usually known. We know that genetics may be a possible contributing factor, and other factors may be linked to:

  • Diet (e.g. food additives, etc.)
  • Environment (polluted water and air, etc.)
  • Advanced age and stress

All these factors can weaken a dogs’s immune system and their natural ability to fight cancerous cells.

Keep your dog’s immune system strong, help to keep his or her mood positive, and you will support your dog's ability to deal with cancer. You’ll also keep him/her happier and more comfortable.

What is Life Gold?

Life Gold is a proprietary formula developed for dogs when their quality of life has been compromised.  More immune system and anti-oxidant protection may be needed at this time.  Dogs with a suppressed immune system can be more at risk for the increased effects of oxidative damage.  In the later stages of damage, there may be signs such as weight loss, lack of appetite, weakness, unexplained vomiting, abnormal growths or swellings, and many other symptoms depending on the area(s) affected.  If you see any of these symptoms or anything else that concerns you, seek the advice of a veterinarian immediately.

With knowledge that draws on both traditional and scientific research of herbs, we have engineered an all-natural extract using herbs from around the world.  This product really is GOLD when your pet's quality of life needs support.

Life Gold helps to ensure that the body's vital systems of detoxification are working well. The liver, kidneys, bowel, lungs, and skin all work to remove the body's waste products. The herbs in Life Gold also help the lymphatic system, a vital part of the immune system.

Life Gold supports your pet's long-term vitality.

What is Life Gold used for?

Life Gold addresses a growing need to adequately address the effects of free radical activity in dogs.

Life Gold provides support for antioxidant function in the body and may reduce free radical damage.  It is safe to use long-term and effectively helps the body to excrete toxins normally through the channels of elimination.

Even if your pet is healthy, Life Gold can be used once or twice each year, to ensure that the body's detoxification systems are working optimally and to help reduce oxidative stress.  This provides a foundation for long-term health.

PetWellbeing.com encourages a consultation with your veterinarian if you find lumps, enlarged lymph glands, notice wounds that don't heal, lameness, abnormal bleeding or other symptoms that are alarming.

What are free radicals?

Simply put, free radicals are unstable molecules in the bodies of animals (including humans) that are seeking to stabilize themselves by "stealing" from other molecules.  When they do this, they create new free radicals.  If free radicals continue in this type of cascading reaction it can eventually cause damage to the cells.  Antioxidant support neutralizes these free radicals by stabilizing them. (Oxidative stress is the same as free radical damage.)

How do free radicals get into the body?

Some free radicals are normally present in the body but more accumulate as we age.  Free radicals can increase when we are exposed to radiation, cigarette smoke, herbicides and toxic chemicals including many household cleaners and outdoor pollution.
Take special care to reduce your pet's exposure to toxins such as avoiding food that contains herbicides/pesticides or meat produced with growth-promoting agents. Inhaling cigarette smoke or riding in the back of a pick-up truck (where they breathe in the exhaust), cumulative radiation from many x-rays and strong chemicals from flea and tick management can all be contributing factors to oxidative stress.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes!  Life Gold comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Why choose Life Gold for your dog?

  • Certified organic and ethically wild-harvested:  This formula is entirely prepared from organically grown and herbs harvested in the wild. Harvesters selectively pick plant parts in limited amounts, leaving future plant populations intact.

Kidney Support Gold - Maintains Healthy Kidney Function In Dogs 661822000076

About Dog Kidney Disease

In humans, the heart is the organ most likely to cause health problems as we age. In canines, it’s the kidneys. Kidney problems are among the top causes of illness and death in older dogs. Two common types of canine kidney problems are:

  • Chronic renal (kidney) failure
  • Kidney stones

Renal (kidney) failure, as its name implies, is when the kidney fails to filter impurities out of the blood and concentrate the urine. Acute kidney failure is often the result of ingesting toxins, and is sometimes reversible. Chronic kidney failure sneaks up more gradually, and is a leading cause of death in dogs.

Treating kidney disease in canines

If your dog is suffering from any form of kidney disease, you should see your vet to discuss conventional treatment options. These include intravenous fluid treatment, dialysis (artificial blood filtering), various drugs, and even kidney transplants.

A low sodium diet is often recommended, as high blood pressure often accompanies kidney failure. A reduced protein diet is also often recommended.

 

What is Kidney Support Gold?

This unique formula is a gentle yet powerful combination of herbal ingredients, tested by our holistic veterinarians. Kidney Support Gold is comprised of scientifically researched extracts for supporting total kidney health. The result is a formula that is excellent for aging dogs and is an essential part of your canine's long term health regime for helping to maintain normal kidney function.

The effects of the herbs in Kidney Support Gold have been studied for their "tonic" actions. Tonic herbs are restorative, help maintain vitality, and provide nutrition to the body in a way that it can readily absorb.

What is Kidney Support Gold used for?

Kidney Support Gold is for long term use when supporting normal renal function is imperative. This formula is created by using current research of time-honored herbs used in traditional Asian medicine for the kidneys and overall vitality.

  • Supports the health of nephrons (parts of the kidneys that help it to filter blood).
  • Helps to maintain normal protein excreted in the urine.
  • Helps the body's immune system respond normally to bacteria and viruses.

Additional Support:

Be sure that your dog is receiving adequate water intake. This is vital to the health of the kidneys. Ensure that a fresh, clean water source is available at all times, encouraging your dog to drink by providing different bowls or "pet fountains". Sometimes flavoring the water can entice your pet to drink more and lower the risk of dehydration.

Your veterinarian can advise you about giving your canine a diet low in protein and phosphate content, both important aspects of supporting the kidneys.

Kidney Support Gold is a safe, natural alternative for your dog's general vitality. It really is Gold!

Young at Heart for Dog Heart Disease 661822000038

What is Young at Heart?

Young at Heart is a liquid formula for canines, combining eight unique herbs. Together, these herbs have a gentle action on the body to support the health of the heart muscle, heart valves and blood vessels. Young at Heart is designed to be used every day and can safely be used by dogs of all ages, as needed. If your dog is taking prescription medications, please review the precautions.

What is Young at Heart used for?

The heart of a canine is anatomically similar to that of a human. However, the type of support required by a dog for normal heart function is not necessarily the same as it would be for the human heart. Young at Heart is a formula designed for your canine's entire cardiovascular system. In particular, it helps to support and maintain the normal muscular integrity of a healthy heart, the valves of the heart, and regular circulation of blood through the blood vessels. Additionally, Young at Heart contains herbs to support the heart's rhythm and healthy blood pressure.

Lets take a look inside the heart:

The heart is made up of three different layers:  The pericardium (outer), myocardium (middle) and endocardium (inner). The pericardium makes up the outer layer of the heart and serves to protect the more delicate tissue layers beneath.

The myocardum is the muscle tissue comprising most of the heart. There are four chambers inside the heart:  two atria and two ventricles. The atria are the uppermost chambers and the ventricles are situated below them. The pumping action of the heart occurs within the myocardium, due to cardiac muscle fibers that interlace into two networks. One network contracts the atria and the other contracts the ventricles. These chambers receive circulating blood and pump it to the rest of the body with each heartbeat.

The endocardium is a smooth, thin layer inside the heart that also covers the heart valves. Atrioventricular valves lie between the atria and ventricles inside the heart. These are the bicuspid (left side of the heart) and tricuspid (right side of the heart) valves. They are there to ensure the blood keeps flowing through the heart in the right direction. Other valves are positioned inside the major arteries that leave the heart and they keep blood flowing to the rest of the body (and not backing up into the heart).

This is a simplified version of the heart's anatomy but it helps to demonstrate some basic information about how the heart works. As your canine ages, he or she may require support to keep the muscular integrity of the heart, and the valves working normally. Certain breeds are known to be more susceptible to specific kinds of heart conditions.

Can my dog take Young at Heart with medications?

Do not use with blood pressure medication, cardiac drugs, cardiac glycosides or blood thinners.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! Young at Heart comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

Why choose Young at Heart for my canine friend?

  • Certified organic and wild-harvested: This formula is entirely prepared from organically grown and ethically wild-harvested herbs.
  • Good Manufacturing Practices: All our formulas are manufactured in a facility that adheres to Good Manufacturing Practices.

Blood Sugar Gold - Dog/Canine Diabetes Support 661822000014

What is Canine Diabetes mellitus?

Diabetes results when a dog's pancreas fails to produce enough of the hormone needed to digest and metabolize carbohydrates and sugars. Sugars build up in the bloodstream rather than enter the body’s tissues where they would otherwise provide energy. (This is why diabetic dogs are often lethargic.)

Excess sugar in a dog's bloodstream can lead to several other conditions, including heart, liver and kidney disease, increased infections, slow healing, cataracts, blindness, etc.

Risk factors for dog diabetes include:

  • Obesity
  • Poor diet (high carbohydrate kibble)
  • Steroid treatments
  • Diestrus (several cycles in one breeding season)
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetic predisposition

Diabetes is more common in:

  • Female dogs
  • Pets fed a strictly dry kibble diet
  • Overweight dogs
  • Middle-aged and older canines

Common symptoms of dog diabetes mellitus include:

  • Increased thirst, frequent urination
  • Weakness, lethargy
  • Signs of pain in the abdomen
  • Cataracts (eyes cloudy rather than clear)
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle wasting

Diagnosing and Treating Dog Diabetes

If you think your dog might have diabetes, you should take him to a vet. A veterinarian can diagnose canine diabetes mellitus by examining sugar levels in the dog's blood and urine.

A recommended lifestyle change usually includes a healthy species appropriate diet. If your dog is overweight, you should help him lose weight gradually through diet and increased exercise but keep in mind that strenuous exercise can also cause an imbalance, so ensure exercise is consistent and moderate. Conventional treatment may also include regular injections of medication. Your dog's feeding regime will be determined when a glucose curve is done by a veterinarian. This will indicate the best time to give medication and when to feed your dog.

What is Blood Sugar Gold?

Our unique formula has been developed by our holistic veterinarians to support stable blood sugar levels in dogs. Using effective herbs for blood sugar maintenance, it also contains herbs to support liver and eye health. Used consistently over time, Blood Sugar Gold may assist your dog's body to maintain healthier blood sugar levels. 

If your veterinarian wants to know more about this product - download the Professional References.

What is Blood Sugar Gold used for?

Blood Sugar Gold may be used in tandem with other protocols for maintaining healthy canine blood sugar levels. It is imperative to monitor blood sugar levels closely when using natural products that have an affect on blood sugar. Natural products can be surprisingly effective. How quickly your canine responds will be unique, and it is extremely important that blood sugar levels stay within a healthy range. 

High blood sugar, as a primary health problem, causes a number of secondary problems to occur, as previously discussed. These include weight gain, thirst and hunger, among others. Once the primary issue begins to stabilize, the secondary issues may also begin to improve.

Before you begin administering Blood Sugar Gold to your dog, please read and follow the cautions .

Can my dog take Blood Sugar Gold with medications?

Blood Sugar Gold may heighten the effect of blood-sugar-lowering drugs. Monitor blood sugar levels closely if administering the product with blood-sugar-lowering drugs. A veterinarian can help to ensure optimal blood sugar levels are maintained. Please feel free to print the BSG Professional Reference and bring it to your next vet appointment, in case your vet has questions about the product. 
An examination from a veterinarian is recommended prior to taking this product. Blood Sugar Gold is never a replacement or substitute for prescription medication.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! Blood Sugar Gold comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

SPARK - Daily Nutritional Supplement 661822001301

What is SPARK?

SPARK is a comprehensive supplement added to food, designed to supply more nutrition. Nutrition that canines and felines can't always get from their diet. A leading naturopathic veterinarian developed SPARK to be a complete, all-in-one delivery of 43 natural ingredients, all researched and synergistically combined for their ability to maintain excellent health.

The 8 main components of SPARK:

 

Non-synthetic sources of vitamins and minerals Probiotics & prebiotics
Fiber Vitamin D
Fruit & vegetable "superfoods" Sea Vegetables + Greens
Enzymes for digestion Amino Acids

Many of the ingredients are termed "superfoods" because they are rich in vitamins, minerals and micronutrients available from food sources. These ingredients are easy to absorb and assimilate, and they maintain good health right down to the cellular level.

Unfortunately, many pet foods are highly processed and lack the vital nutrients that pets need to thrive. There is a big difference between surviving and thriving. SPARK was developed to give pets the best possible nutrition, so you never have to wonder if they are getting everything they need. Simply sprinkle it on their food. Most pets not only love the taste, they crave it. Take the 60-day challenge and see how your pet enjoys SPARK.

SPARK is gluten free.

What is SPARK used for?

Our pets rely on us to provide them with what they need. Giving them daily, optimal nutrition is one way to show how much we care. Good nutrition keeps the immune system stronger, coat and teeth stay healthier, and energy levels and enjoyment of life are easier to maintain. A healthy diet and SPARK give you more peace-of-mind that you are giving your pet the best chance of a good life, for the long term.

  • Use SPARK for pets of all life stages
  • SPARK can be added to the diet of any feline or canine
  1. Feed SPARK to your pet for 60 days
  2. Notice any healthy benefits after 60 days or less
  3. Notice how good it feels to provide your pet with optimal nutrition
  4. Give us your honest opinion in the Reviews section. 

We are confident this will become a regular part of your pets' health regime once they've tried it. And like all Pet Wellbeing products, SPARK comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

A Note from our Veterinarian...

If you are going to give your pet one supplement, this should be it. I have seen remarkable benfits and I recommend it for the majority of canines and felines of all ages (once they are weaned), and breeds. Cats or dogs that are hyperthyroid should not take this supplement. If your pet has a kidney condition please feed the suggested amount only, using caution.

SPARK gives you the assurance that your pet is getting everything he or she needs. Have you ever witnessed your dog or cat munching grass outside? Though they cannot digest common grasses very well, there is something in the grass that they crave. Most pet foods on the market include a minimum daily requirement of synthetic vitamins and minerals, rather than a full spectrum of nutrients. As a veterinarian, I am dismayed at the ingredients that go into some pet foods, even some of the "good" brands. Even though I recommend a more holistic diet, I encourage feeding SPARK with every type of diet.

The key is:  SPARK provides all the building blocks and the foundation for optimal health.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! SPARK comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

 

Why choose SPARK for your canine or feline?

Good Manufacturing Practices:  All our formulas are manufactured in a facility that adheres to Good Manufacturing Practices.

Thyroid Support Gold - Cat Hyperthyroidism Support 661822600139

Hyperthyroidism is very common with middle-aged and older felines; in fact, it has become one of the most common ailments that vets see in cats. It results when the thyroid gland (located near the cat's windpipe) produces too much thyroid hormone.

Hyperthyroid pets often lose weight, have increased or decreased appetites, and become nervous, irritable and vocal. For several days, they may be hyperactive and have a rapid heart beat, then lethargic, apathetic and uninterested in food, play or grooming. Unfortunately thyroid imbalances are extremely common in cats, the biggest one being hyperthyroidism.

Symptoms of feline hyperthyroidism

  • Weight loss
  • Poor coat quality
  • Increased appetite
  • Increased water intake
  • Increased urine output
  • Occasional vomiting or diarrhea
  • Hyperactivity, irritability, increased yowling

If you suspect your cat has an overactive thyroid, you should consult your vet.

Western Medicine and Hyperthyroidism in felines

  • The conventional treatment is an oral medication given daily, prescribed by a veterinarian. Effects of may include loss of appetite, lethargy, vomiting, liver toxicity, and skin disease. Cats allergic to sulfonamides most likely will not tolerate this medication. Thyroid Support Gold should not be taken at the same time as conventional hyperthyroid medication.
  • Some felines have their enlarged thyroid removed surgically, which requires anesthesia. Cats with high thyroid levels may first have to become stabilized on medication before surgery. If surgery is elected you may consider radio nucleotide imaging; it can add to the expense but it can also prevent missing abnormal thyroid tissue or it can help prevent removing healthy parathyroid tissue by mistake. Surgery is expensive and is not 100% successful. Anesthesia may be risky in unhealthy patients.
  • Radioactive iodine treatment is the most costly treatment and involves 3-7 days of hospital isolation (although anesthesia is not required). Unfortunately it is not uncommon for the treatment to have to be repeated as the procedure is not 100% successful and an abnormal thyroid gland tumor can return.

What is Thyroid Support Gold?

Thyroid Support Gold is a natural supplement designed to give gentle support to a feline's thyroid gland. The principal herbs in this formula specifically address thyroid hormones. The adjunct herbs support other parts of the body that can be affected by thyroid hormones:  heart function and the nervous system (including activity levels and sleep). There is also some naturally-occurring Vitamin C (from Amla) that provides support for the thyroid and immune system.

What is Thyroid Support Gold used for?

Our holistic veterinarian created the ideal balance of complementary botanical ingredients to maintain long-term, normal function of the thyroid gland. Specifically, Thyroid Support Gold works to sustain the normal equilibrium of metabolism. When the metabolism is affected by the thyroid hormones, it will influence the appetite, thirst and body weight. Skin and coat are affected as well. Normal thyroid hormone levels and a healthy metabolic rate can significantly contribute to the comfort and wellness of your cat for a better quality of life.

The action of thyroid hormones indirectly affect the heart rate, force of the heartbeat and affect the level of nervousness in the body. For this reason, Thyroid Support Gold has been formulated to support a feline's entire body as it relates to thyroid function. Herbs for healthy function of the heart muscle, heart rate and a normally calm temperament are part of what makes Thyroid Support Gold a comprehensive and effective formula.

The action of Thyroid Support Gold is effective yet works gently. Supporting your cat's hormone levels requires a long-term outlook. Please expect that natural supplements for supporting normal thyroid function are going to work gradually over several weeks before you can expect evidence of the results.

Can my cat take Thyroid Support Gold with medications?

Do not use with drugs prescribed to treat hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid function).

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! Thyroid Support Gold comes with a 90-day, money-back guarantee.

Healthy Tip from Dr. Jan 

Combine Thyroid Support Gold with Milk Thistle for support of hyperthyroid (hyper-metabolic) conditions. The support for the liver provided by Milk Thistle, when the enzymes are elevated on blood panels, is very important and can support nutritionally and phytochemically. If intervention with natural products like these is taken early, the progression of hyper metabolism can be diminished.

A Note From Our Veterinarian...

Hyperthyroidism is not uncommon in cats, usually older cats. The increased metabolism caused by excess thyroid hormones means that your cat loses weight while having an increase (or decrease) in appetite and excessive thirst. Your cat may also appear agitated, hyper and nervous (or lethargic) with dry, lusterless hair and thickened nails. Diarrhea and vomiting can also be present. Your cat may show signs of heat intolerance by seeking cool places. Irregularities to the eyes and retina can develop. Sometimes, cat hyperthyroidism can be caused by a growth on the thyroid gland, either benign or malignant. A thorough check from a veterinarian can determine whether your cat’s hyperthyroidism is tumor-related and direct you to the best course of treatment if it is.

Life Gold - Cat Cancer Support 661822000519

Give your Cat the best chance at a Good Quality of Life!

You have talked to your vet and they have told you what your options are.  For certain cancers there are conventional treatments that may help, but in most cases the prognosis does not leave you with many options.   

As with human cancer, the precise causes of cat cancer are not known. We know that genetics may be a contributing factor, plus there are potential factors like:

  • Diet (e.g. poor diet, food additives, etc.)
  • Environment (polluted water and air, etc.)
  • Advanced age and stress

All these factors can weaken your cat's immune system, limiting his or her body's natural ability to fight cancerous cells.

Keep your cat's immune system strong and his/her mood positive and you will support the ability to deal with cancer. You’ll also keep him or her happier and more comfortable.

What is Life Gold?

Life Gold is a proprietary formula developed for cats when their quality of life has been compromised. More immune system and anti-oxidant protection may be needed at this time. Cats with a suppressed immune system can be more at-risk for the increased effects of oxidative damage. In the later stages of damage, there may be signs such as weight loss, lack of appetite, weakness, unexplained vomiting, abnormal growths or swellings, and many other symptoms depending on the area(s) affected. If you see any of these symptoms or anything else that concerns you, seek the advice of a veterinarian immediately.

With knowledge that draws on both traditional and scientific research of herbs, we have engineered an all-natural extract using herbs from around the world.  This product really is GOLD when your pet's quality of life needs support.

Life Gold helps to ensure that the body's vital systems of detoxification are working well.  The liver, kidneys, bowel, lungs, and skin all work to remove the body's waste products.  The herbs in Life Gold also help to support the lymphatic system, a vital part of the immune system.

Life Gold supports your pet's long-term vitality.

What is Life Gold used for?

Life Gold addresses health situations that require us to adequately handle the effects of free radical activity.

Life Gold provides support for antioxidant function in the body and may reduce free radical damage.  It is safe to use long-term and effectively helps the body to excrete toxins normally through the channels of elimination, thus alleviating some of that stress on the body.

Even if your pet is healthy, Life Gold can be used once or twice each year, to ensure that the body's detoxification systems are working optimally and to help reduce oxidative stress.  This provides a foundation for long-term health.

PetWellbeing.com encourages a consultation with your veterinarian if you find lumps, enlarged lymph glands, notice wounds that don't heal, lameness, abnormal bleeding or other symptoms that are alarming.

What are free radicals?

Simply put, free radicals are unstable molecules in the bodies of animals (including humans) that are seeking to stabilize themselves by "stealing" from other molecules.  When they do this, they create new free radicals.  If free radicals continue in this type of cascading reaction, it can eventually cause damage to the cells.  Antioxidant support neutralizes these free radicals by stabilizing them. (Oxidative stress is the same as free radical damage.)

How do free radicals get into the body?

Some free radicals are normally present in the body but more accumulate as we age.  Free radicals can increase when we are exposed to radiation, cigarette smoke, herbicides and pesticides, toxic chemicals including many household cleaners, and pollution.
Take special care to reduce your pet's exposure to toxins, such as avoiding food that contains herbicides/pesticides or meat produced with growth-promoting agents. Inhaling cigarette smoke, cumulative radiation from multiple X-rays and strong chemicals from flea and tick management can all be contributing factors to oxidative stress.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes!  Life Gold comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Blood Sugar Gold - Cat/Feline Diabetes Support 661822600016

About Feline Diabetes mellitus

Diabetes results when a cat's pancreas fails to produce enough of the hormone needed to digest and metabolize carbohydrates and sugars. Sugars build up in the bloodstream rather than entering the body’s tissues where they would otherwise provide energy. (This is why diabetic cats are often lethargic.)

Excess sugar in the bloodstream can lead to several other conditions, including heart, liver and kidney disease, increased infections, slow healing, cataracts, blindness, etc.

Risk factors for feline diabetes include:

  • Obesity
  • Poor diet (high carbohydrate kibble)
  • Steroid treatments
  • Stress and shock
  • Age

Diabetes is more common in:

  • Male cats, generally
  • Cats fed a diet of dry kibble, only
  • Overweight cats
  • Middle-aged and older felines

Common symptoms of Feline Diabetes mellitus include:

  • Increased thirst, frequent urination
  • Weakness, lethargy
  • Signs of pain in the abdomen
  • Cataracts (eyes cloudy rather than clear)
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle wasting

Diagnosing and treating Feline Diabetes

If you think your cat may have diabetes, you should take him to a vet. A veterinarian can diagnose feline diabetes mellitus by examining sugar levels in the cat's blood and urine.

A recommended lifestyle change usually includes a healthy species-appropriate diet, high in protein and without complex carbohydrates. If your cat is overweight, you can assist with weight loss through diet and increased exercise. Caution:  weight loss should be gradual. If cats lose weight too quickly or stop eating, they can become prone to a serious illness called hepatic lipidosis (also called fatty liver syndrome). When this happens, excess fat builds up in the cells of the liver. Be very careful when transitioning your feline to a new food to ensure he is eating adequate amounts daily. Cats cannot fast and must ingest some food within each 24 hour period at an absolute minimum! Treatment will almost certainly include regular injections of medication. Your cat's feeding regime will be determined when a glucose curve is done by a veterinarian. This will indicate the best time to give medication and when to feed your cat.  Also closely monitor any adjustment in diet. Especially if moving from a higher carbohydrate kibble diet to a higher protein, lower carbohydrate diet. Lower carb diets may reduce the percentage of body fat and lower requirements for medication. 

What is Blood Sugar Gold?

Our unique formula has been developed by our holistic veterinarians to support stable feline blood sugar levels. Using the best known herbs for blood sugar support and maintenance, it also contains herbs to support a healthy liver and eyes.

If your veterinarian wants to know more about this product - download the Professional Reference.

What is Blood Sugar Gold used for?

Blood Sugar Gold can be used in tandem with other protocols for supporting healthy blood sugar levels. It is of utmost importance that care is taken to monitor blood sugar levels when using this formula, particularly if using with blood-sugar-lowering drugs. The effectiveness will be individual. Although the ingredients in this formula are herbal, they are surprisingly effective at lowering blood sugar in cats, especially if an appropriate diet and exercise are part of the program. Cautions are stated to ensure that your cat's blood sugar stays within a healthy range while using this product. That is the most important thing, whether your cat is administered a drug, Blood Sugar Gold, or a combination of the two.

Blood Sugar Gold contains herbs that support the pancreas. It also consists of herbs that support liver function. Part of the liver's role in maintaining blood sugar is to store and release glucose into the bloodstream, as needed. The liver's function is closely tied to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. 

Symptoms brought on by high blood sugar levels (such as increased urination, thirst and low energy) may start to subside for your feline as blood sugar levels start to stabilize.

If your cat has been diagnosed with diabetes, it is essential that his blood sugar levels are kept within a healthy range. Do not substitute Blood Sugar Gold for blood-sugar-lowering drugs. Blood Sugar Gold contains hypoglycemic herbal ingredients, and they may have a large or small affect on your cat's blood sugar levels. For this reason, it is extremely important that levels are monitored when giving this supplement. A glucose curve, taken every two weeks, is recommended.

Can my cat take Blood Sugar Gold with medications?

Blood Sugar Gold may heighten the effect of blood-sugar-lowering drugs. Monitor blood sugar levels closely if administering the product with blood-sugar-lowering drugs. A veterinarian can help to ensure optimal blood sugar levels are maintained. Talk to your veterinarian about how to monitor blood sugar levels at home, and also about monitoring frequency until levels have stabilized. A Professional Reference information form is provided on our webpage. You can take this form to your vet if he/she would like to know more about BSG. 

If your cat's blood sugar levels are too high, please do not rely on BSG as the only therapy for your cat. Most cats will require a drug to manage their high blood sugar. In some cases, BSG will allow the injection amounts to eventually decrease or be eliminated. Careful and gradual is key. Keeping your cat's blood sugar levels on target is essential to life.
An examination from a veterinarian is recommended prior to taking this product.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! Blood Sugar Gold comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.
