Time races on .... Summer is upon us, and Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are history! Can Pet Day be far behind? Even if it’s not an official holiday, we are making it so, because our pets are also much-loved family members that deserve our care.
Native Remedies has a significant amount of pet health information regarding our cute and often cuddly pets that we may sometimes overlook. They remind us that, while it’s uncommon for pets to be carriers of disease, they can be, especially if they roam around outside and then come into the home and bring with them whatever attached itself to them while outside. Think about ticks hitching a ride on your pet and then jumping onto a child, once inside. Lime disease is a feared summer-time threat and Ringworm is a very contagious fungal infection which is spread through direct contact.
Native Remedies makes these common-sense suggestions in relation to handling your pets:
….. and gives you some suggestions what to be aware of if something seem amiss with your cat or dog:
**** Symptoms of lime disease may include: Swollen joints, muscle pain and weakness, lesions, lameness, fever, vomiting, poor appetite, fatigue;
**** Symptoms of Ringworm: Patches or circular areas of hair loss, inflamed, scaly skin; scratching and itchiness;
**** Natural pet remedies include: Milk Thistle because it supports liver functioning and the removal of toxins, while homeopathic ingredients such as Crotalus hor., China, Ferrum phos. and Aconite support the immune system, liver and red blood cells.
**** For Ringworm Natural Remedies suggest: Shampoos and anti-fungal creams to reduce infection. Tea Tree Oil, Neem, Marigold and Witchhazel promote healthy skin and coat to support the immune system. Also they advise that you thoroughly clean areas your pets have been in contact with, such as food and bowls and sleeping area.
Go ahead, celebrate Pet Day with treats for your furry friend and help him/her and you with natural pet remedies that will keep all of you enjoying the summer.
