Driving Safe & Sound

One of the best ways to drive along with your pet is keeping them safe from jumping around your car.. Pet boosters and saftey seat belt harness are all ways to keep your pet and yourself  protected from any accidents along the road.

Because i have a small pooch i decided to purchase the car booster from amazon.. look how well behaved my dog looks 😉

The Dog Whisperer – Is On Its Final Season

A reality program about the various dog behaviors that human families encounter. It also showcases host Cesar Millan’s expertise in dealing and resolving the animal behavior cases by applying rules, boundaries and limitations. It also gives light to the reality that, more often than not, the owners need training more than their pets.

“Cesar Milan has given the world an awareness of the needs of dogs and the responsibilities of dog ownership. Too many don’t walk their dogs, don’t work with them on training and then wonder why they’re unruly. Left in a back yard or inside without interaction for hours and without training or controlled exercise and then owners are surprised when the dog has behavioral problems. Too many dogs are surrendered to shelters and destroyed every day because people underestimate their dogs needs. Or the people and dogs that coexist in a frustrating home environment vs experiencing the benefits of a mutually healty, happy relationship. I believe Cesar has made a huge, positive impact and there is still a lot of work to do in this regard around the world. I hope to see his great work continue and reach more people positively impacting the lives of people and their dogs.” – Sarah Hikel- (comment)

Why Dog Digestive Enzymes Important

 

Here are some of the many benefits of enzymes:

  • Supports the immune system
  • Aids the absorption of vitamins and minerals from food
  • Promotes normal body weight without hunger cravings
  • Promotes respiratory health
  • Helps reduce minor food sensitivities
  • Helps promote normal cell growth
  • Supports healthy teeth and gums
  • Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range
  • Reduces occasional bloating, gas, heartburn, and constipation
  • Lessens skin irritation and excessive shedding
  • Provides more energy due to better utilization of nutrients
  • Helps remove toxins from the body
  • Promotes comfortable movement of joints

The four basic digestive enzymes are:

  • Protease – helps break down and digest protein
  • Amylase – helps break down and digest carbohydrates and starches
  • Lipase – helps break down and digest fat
  • Cellulase – helps break down fiber

What happens if your pet doesn’t have enough enzymes in his digestive track?

First, his body robs critical metabolic enzymes from other important tasks, such as immune function, as digestion of food reigns as a high-priority, survival activity.

Second, a lack of digestive enzymes may result in incomplete digestion, allowing partially digested food particles to enter the bloodstream directly from the large intestine.

Less-than-optimal health may be at least partially due to your pet’s body’s response to undigested food particles circulating in the bloodstream.

Where does your pet get the enzymes she needs for digestion and other metabolic functions?

From two sources:

  • Your pet’s diet
  • Your pet’s body

Enzymes help:

  • Support the healthy circulation of blood through arteries
  • Maintaining normal immune function
  • Clear cellular debris while cleansing tissue
  • Stimulate healthy new cell growth
  • Promote normal cell growth
  • Promote a healthy immune response
  • Support normal detoxification processes
  • Clear away undigested proteins, cleansing the lymph and blood

Healthy Pets Digestive Enzymes:

  • Betaine HCl – breaks down proteins into peptides and amino acids and fats into triglycerides
  • Ox Bile Extract – safely used for many years in human and pet enzyme products to support the liver’s production of bile and offer supplemental bile for bile-deficient pets, critical for digesting fats
  • Bromelain (pineapple) – one of the safest and most powerful enzymes to help break down and digest protein
  • Papain (papaya) – a natural plant-sourced enzyme that works together with bromelain to digest protein
  • Pancreatin– an animal-based pancreatic enzyme providing all three of these enzymes:
  • Protease – helps break down proteins into amino acids for digestion
  • Amylase – for splitting and breaking down long-chain carbohydrates, including starch and glycogen (the energy-storage molecule in animal tissue) for digestion in the small intestine
  • Lipase – helps break down and digest fats
