Give Your Pets Some Extra Hugs On National Love Your Pet Day!

It’s National Love Your Pet Day so be sure to give your pets an extra cuddle. Since Legend is 10 1/2 years old, I try to make every day with him our Love Your Pet Day.  

Pay To Spay, Inc Is Making A Difference To Save Lives And Reduce Pet Overpopulation

We would like to recognize Eve Crespin, Founder and President of Pay to Spay, Inc. a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization located in Gainesville, Florida.   Eve is an entrepreneur, interior decorator, community activist and environmental defender, but mostly she is a devoted animal lover making the world a better place for pets.  After working with rescues for over 20 years, Eve realized it would take a different approach in order to truly reduce, and eventually eliminate, the number of unwanted animals born each year, only to be killed in shelters.

Over the years, Eve had told her husband Bill that in lieu of birthday gifts she just wanted him to donate to animal charities. In 2016, he surprised her with the best birthday gift ever…a charity of her own. He had incorporated Pay to Spay, Inc. so that Eve could fulfill her dream of leading by example and walking the walk. Pay To Spay Inc is 100% funded by donations and proceeds go directly toward reducing fixing animals and reducing the pet overpopulation problem.  To read more about the wonderful difference Pay To Spay Inc is making to help animals, please click here.

We also wanted to share the story of how Eve became such a great kitty mom to over 20 fur babies and what brought her to Ask Ariel!

Our cats came to us many different ways. Mostly, when we lived in the Florida Keys for 14 years. I worked with rescue groups and was a foster failure. Also, some just showed up at our house, and others were dumped. When we moved to Gainesville, Florida, we brought our colony of 24 cats with us, because they are our family… I have been using the Ask Ariel Immune Support And Asthma Kit on several kitties now for awhile (along with other products). It has drastically helped with many issues. I found that when I took some of them off this on a daily basis they reverted back to being very sick and problematic. Once on this combo again for a month, they are clearing up.  Thanks for offering such amazing products. “

How Much Protein Should Be In My Pet’s Diet?

When choosing a pet food for your cat or dog, it’s important to look on the label. Pet food manufacturers will include a breakdown of protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber as well as a list of ingredients.  Cats are carnivores and need a substantive source of protein from meat, fish or poultry.  Most active,  young dogs fare better with a low carbohydrate diet with animal-based protein.  Unfortunately most pet foods are high in carbohydrates to keep the costs down. This is especially true of dry food which is made with starchy carbohydrates such as potatoes, peas or legumes (e.g chickpeas).  Not only are these diets harder for pets to digest, but high carbohydrate diets spike insulin levels faster, making pets hungrier contributing to obesity.

To help your cat or dog maintain a healthy weight and optimal health, choose higher protein diets with a minimum of starchy carbohydrates.  Even if your pet has pancreatitis, you can select a food with low fat protein sources that are lean such as fish or venison.  The only time to choose a higher carbohydrate diet is if your pet is suffering from liver or kidney disease and protein levels must be restricted.  Even then you can choose healthier low-glycemic carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes over  pro-inflammatory grains such as oats and wheat.

To learn more about how pet nutrition and choosing the right diet for your pet, please see our library of Pet Health articles.

Remembering Davy - An Amazing Rescue Dog

Today we are remembering Davy a beloved rescue dog that lived to be 19 years old. Davy was adopted by the Marcus family through Ariel Rescue, our non-profit dog rescue charity over 15 years ago. Davy faced many health issues over the years including: Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, IBD, Gallbladder Disease and a Brain Tumor. Through it all his mom Elaine took amazing care of him and did everything possible to help him have a full and happy life. Using a combination of conventional care and holistic treatments (including many Ask Ariel supplements ) Davy thrived. He remained an active dog until the very last few days, going on two long walks a day. He will be missed very much and our hearts go out to the Marcus family.
