Dogs and Cats with Diabetes--Holistic Care for Pets

Pictured above is Maverick, 12 year old Miniature Pinscher mix and an Ask Ariel success story. Maverick has diabetes and nearly died from complications related to the disease and obesity. Maverick's scheduled a holistic nutrition consultation with Susan Davis, Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Dr. David Gordon, holistic veterinarian. We put Maverick on a high protein, all natural diet (some commercial food, some homemade) along with Lypozyme,  Power Probiotic and Kidney Health as well as some additional supplements for other health concerns. The new program helped Maverick so much that he was able to lose a substantial amount of weight, gained new energy and has been able to live a happy, active life using just a minimum amount of insulin.

Here is how the products help:

Lypozyme--Optimizes fat digestion and metabolism.

Power Probiotic--Many patients (human and pets) with diabetes have too much sugar in their bodies. This makes them more susceptible to infections, particularly urinary tract infections. The Probiotic is an excellent multi-strain formula that helps support a healthy immune function, providing much needed "good bacteria" to help fight infection. This product is extremely easy to give to cats by mixing in foods and is virtually tasteless.

Kidney Health--This powerful enzyme formula helps diabetic patients by enabling them to better absorb, digest and utilize the protein in their diet. We all know that protein helps to regulate our blood sugar and how important it is for regulating insulin/hunger. Ever noticed that when you eat a meal high in carbohydrates that you crave food shortly thereafter vs when you eat a meal with protein, you are much more balanced? Well, for pets with diabetes, this is especially important and the Kidney Health really helps.

We have many great reports from owners who have cats with diabetes as well as dogs with diabetes telling us how much better their pets are feeling using this protocol. We would also recommend using the Amazing Omegas as well.
