Be Careful With Holiday Treats--Pets Can Get Sick!


Thanksgiving is coming and we need to be especially careful about overindulging our adorable pets.  It’s hard to resist begging eyes, but human treats are not good for pets. Candy, cookies, ice cream and lattes can make your pet sick. Even though our pets may seem and act human-like, their digestive and immune systems are different than ours. Sugar weakens immunity, making them more susceptible to diabetes, cancer, skin and ear infections. High fat foods such as gravy, pies and cheese can cause IBD or pancreatitis, especially in small pets. There are so many wonderful freeze-dried treats available and some pets even like veggies. Please be careful to keep human goodies away from pets to keep them safe and healthy.

Morkie With Collapsed Trachea Gets Better

Piper was suffering with digestive problems, mild allergies, anxiety and collapsed trachea. Her mom, Cassandra, searched online and found Ask Ariel's natural supplements for collapsed trachea. Food allergies and poor digestion can aggravate collapsed trachea symptoms. Cassandra purchased Ultra-Flex Collagen to strengthen the trachea and Power Probiotic to help with digestive discomfort. Here is what Piper's mom had to say: “I just wanted to take time to thank you for your wonderful products. My 6 year old Morkie, Piper, was starting to suffer from several symptoms of collapsed trachea and I was getting really nervous. One night I researched online and found your products and client testimonials so I purchased the Ultra-Flex Collagen and Power Probiotic. Within just a couple of the days of use, almost all of her symptoms had subsided. I plan to purchase some additional products you recommend for collapsed trachea but wanted to let you know that I am amazed and truly grateful for your products - they work!!!"

Causes of Feline Squamous Cell Carcinoma


Feline Squamous

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a cancer that can affect the skin and oral tissue in cats.  White and lighter colored cats are more inclined to develop these tumors.  White cats who sit frequently on window sills are at higher risk and the tumors may appear on areas where there is little protection from ultraviolet rays such as the ears, eyelids, nose and lips.  Squamous cell carcinoma can also develop inside the mouth and is the most common form of oral cancer in cats. The signs of oral SCC are foul mouth odors, difficulty eating and ulcerated lesions in the mouth. Oral tumors are very aggressive and can spread to the jaw bones. While the cause of oral feline squamous cell sarcoma is unknown, exposure to cigarette smoke and flea collars as well as feeding canned tuna may be risk factors.   Immune Harmony and the Immune Support Kit provide essential immune support for cats with SCC.
