It’s Not Too Late… For 2019 New Year's Resolutions for Your Pet



AskAriel.com is passionate about pet nutrition and holistic care.  It is our goal to provide you with valuable pet nutrition information and effective natural supplements to keep your pets happy and healthy.  We want to do all we can to support you in achieving these healthy New Year's Resolutions in 2019.  
Diet - Review your pet’s current diet. Does it contain fillers and common allergens that are making your pet itch? Does it contain a lot of starchy carbohydrates that are causing your pet to gain weight?   Foods that are not right for your pet could be contributing to your pet's  health issues (i.e. digestive issues, skin problems or autoimmune disease).  Click here to learn more about pet nutrition
Exercise -  It's good for you and your pet. Commit to increase the amount of exercise your pet is getting. It could be an extra walk for your dog or additional play time for your kitty.
Spend More Time With Your Pet -  Pets never live as long as we want them to.  When you consider that a dog's years is roughly equivalent to 7 years of a human's---time flies.  We all have very busy schedules and can delude ourselves into thinking that our pets will be there forever.. .... but they don't.  Before you know it, your puppy or kitten is now a senior.   Spend a little more time each day to hug them, kiss them and thank them for all the wonderful joy they bring into your life and your home.  
Take Charge On Any Health Issues -  Is there something new or different that you noticed in your pet that is giving you concern?  Taking time off to visit your veterinarian can be stressful and expensive.  But, making that visit happen can end up SAVING you money because vet bills tend to be less the sooner a condition is diagnosed and certainly it's much better for your pet.  As a New Year's Resolution, contact your veterinarian now to find out when the last time your pet had laboratory testing.  Blood and urinary tests every 6 months for senior pets and every year for younger pets is essential.   

Don't make the mistake of thinking that your pet's condition is just a minor issue or due to old age.  Taking a proactive approach can not only help your pet feel better with conventional veterinary care, but most importantly holistic treatments can work most effectively at the early stages of disease.    Click here for information on holistic care for common pet health conditions.

Tips to Increase Your Cat’s Water Consumption


Dehydration is a common problem in cats.  Cats maintain proper hydration either through moisture in their food or drinking enough water.  But many cats are water avoiders which can lead to dehydration.   Why is this a problem?  Water helps cats digest food and eliminate waste. When cats are dehydrated, they can develop urinary tract infections or urinary crystals and they can also become constipated.  Senior cats, especially, require proper hydration to help protect their kidney function. A dehydrated cat may appear lethargic with poor skin elasticity.  While the current temperature, activity level and type of food all have an effect on a cat’s hydration, a bout of vomiting or diarrhea can cause a cat or dog to become dehydrated quickly.
 
Tips to Increase Your Cat’s Water Consumption
·        Incorporate high moisture canned or raw food into your cat’s diet--avoid or limit dry food if at all possible
·        Use an automatic water fountain as many cats prefer running water
·        Keep fresh clean water available and change the water frequently
·        Try using different types of water bowls
·        Use a variety of water such as bottled or filtered to determine your cat’s preference since some cats can be very particular about the water they drink

Keeping your cat hydrated will help ensure your cat stays happy and healthy.  If you suspect your cat may be dehydrated, be sure to seek out the advice of your veterinarian.

Healthy Pets Start With Good Nutrition


Healthy pets need good nutrition. When was the last time you looked at your pet’s food label? Are there ingredients you can’t pronounce? Is the first ingredient starchy carbohydrates such as some type of grain or flour? Look for familiar real food ingredients such as poultry, fish or meat along with vegetables and healthy oils such as olive or fish oil. With the start of the New Year, take a fresh look at your pet’s diet and consider making a change.  To learn more about pet nutrition, please visit www.AskAriel.com

“This is Pumpkin, who has been using your supplements (Immune Harmony, Power Probiotic, QuentaSAN/NotaSAN and Silver Support Spray), for about 8 months or more. He has Stomatitis, rodent ulcers, and many autoimmune issues. He has not had ANY flare ups since using the products, switching his food, and taking him off steroids which the Vet kept him on. Again, I thank you more than anything... He is my angel, and you have given me the chance at giving him the healthy life he deserves. Thank you.”
