Natural Canine Cushings Disease Treatment Helps Standard Poodle


Max is a 12 year old Standard Poodle with Canine Cushing's Disease (hyperadrenocortism).  In this condition, the adrenal glands overproduce a hormone called cortisol resulting in symptoms such as panting, excess water consumption, increased appetite, bloated belly, hair and skin problems and a weakened immune system.  The Ask Ariel Canine Cushings Support supplement helps to reduce overall cortisol levels, thereby improving the dog's symptoms of Cushings Disease.

We are greatly appreciative that Max's family shared his success so that other pet owners know there is hope for this challenging health condition.

 "Max has been using the Canine Cushings Support formula for 4 months with good results.  Max's appetite has gone from voracious, always hungry to pretty normal.  His thirst was almost unquenchable, drank so much water!  We are so happy we found a remedy to help him with his Cushing's Disease."

House of Representatives Introduces PAWS Bill to Help Veterans

Cole and Kaya
On Wednesday, March 16th , Representative Ron DeSantis (R- Fl) introduced Puppies Assisting Wounded Servicemembers Act (PAWS).  This pilot program would give trained service dogs to veterans that have severe levels of PTSD and are under the care of a VA primary care doctor or mental health professional. It would authorize the VA to spend up to $27,000 per dog to obtain them from an accredited organization and covered under the VA health insurance plan (pet care insurance).
Rep. DeSantis stated “Thousands of our post-9/11 veterans carry the invisible burden of post-traumatic stress, and there is an overwhelming need to expand the available treatment options,” and “The VA should use every tool at their disposal to support and treat our veterans, including the specialized care offered by service dogs.”  A strong supporter of the bill is Corporal Cole Lyle, a six year Marine Corps veteran who currently has Kaya, a service dog, to help him battle PTSD. He stated that Kaya “helps him overcome the struggles of PTSD on a daily basis”. 
Studies have shown that service dogs can lessen anxiety/stress and reduce the need of medications in those suffering from PTSD. The PAWS Act would allocate $10 million to fund the pilot program.

Happy Tail: Dog Lost at Sea Reunited with Owner

Luna-waiting to be reunited with her owner

On February 10, 2016, Nick Haworth was out fishing with his trusty companion, a one year old German Shepherd named Luna, when she fell off the boat into the Pacific Ocean near San Diego, California.  He contacted the authorities and told them she was a strong swimmer and would be heading toward land. The closest land was a Navy facility on San Clemente Island (2 miles away). The Navy aided in the search to no avail and Luna was presumed lost at sea. Haworth posted on his Facebook page "RIP Luna, you will be greatly missed.”  

That all changed on Tuesday, March 15th, five weeks after being lost, when Luna showed up with tail wagging to greet the navy crew as they showed up for work.  She did not miss a step and jumped right in the car when they whistled for her. After being examined, it was determined that Luna was uninjured, but a bit malnourished (a diet of small rodents seemed to help her survive). Haworth was out of town when he first received the news, but they were reunited on Thursday when he returned. What a happy ending to the story!

Ask Ariel Pet Supplements Help Family Of Pet Lovers

Many thanks to Ask Ariel client Mary P from Washington DC who sent this lovely note:

"I wanted to share a few things with you and just say thanks for helping my family!  My whole family has seen how well Chloe is benefiting from the wonderful advice and dietary supplements you have developed and decided to give their pets your supplements.  Anthony, my son who is in the Air Force, spent Christmas with us this year along with his seven year old Boxer Dawkins. I was very pleased to see that Dawkins is on Ask Ariel supplements. Also, God Bless you for considering those in the military too! They don’t make a lot of money and every little bit helps and we so appreciate the military discount.   My daughter, Natalie, has her Boston Terrier on your Ask Ariel Probiotic too.  I will continue to tell all my friends/family about you and your products and that Chloe, Henry and Dawkins are living proof!  Thank you so much!  Happy New Year and God Bless."
