Natural Pet Products

I used this picture of Maggie initiating play with Codie as an example of a pet that just might need a pill to "chill out". She is over the top when it comes to being at the top of any scale on assertion, agressive behavior and inability to ride in a car just taking the time to relax and watch the world go by. She must be on alert ready to strike at the possibility of another dog coming up along side of us. She certainly would not make an ideal RV dog.

I have been searching for product that I can truly say is quality no matter what it is that I sell. I have been reading about different natural remedies for pets and ran across Ark Naturals. It is a product that I can believe in. I am making it the best price I can, so I can share what works with my customers. I will not be an on-line drugstore for our pets, but will offer only a few items that work for my life surrounded with my four dogs and two cats.

I carry Happy Traveler by Ark Naturals because of Maggie. I know many of you in my e-commerce world have pets that you need to travel with. It would be nice to find a natural pet product to help calm them and make them better traveling companions. I also use this product for Codie. She cannot handle thunder storms. We don't have many of them in our part of the world, but when we do, Codie lands on our heads in bed trembling beyond belief. She weighs 85 pounds so it isn't a pleasant experience. We don't have the heart to banish her from her usual sleeping place beside our bed. I can just imagine this poor dog alone in the family room knowing that her life will end at the next crash of thunder. On stormy nights she will have her natural pet remedy warding off the stress of loud thunder and lightening. We have found our stormy nights restful with the sound of falling rain instead of tramatic with a terrified dog on our faces.

Ark Natural's Happy Traveler

  • Nervous behavior and symptoms associated with motion sickness

Sadie, like many active labradors, has had two "football knee injuries". She tore her legiments in both her knees. She should be on Glucosamine for the rest of her life. It is hard to get her to take the human counterpart. The pills are very large and the available chewables just don't taste good to dogs. Ark Naturals has a Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewable that Sadie gobbles down like dog candy.

Ark Naturals Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewable is fantastic for helping dogs maintain healthy joints. The combination of ingredients in Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewables work together to maintain the structure of the cartilage in your dog's joints while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dog's joints.

The general use of Glucosamine is for dogs that are experiencing arthritic pain. Sadie will have no pain, but she may develope arthritis as she matures. The vet removed quite a bit of arthritis from her knees when he did her surgery. Sadie is only four years old. It is true that dogs age much faster than we do!

Ark Naturals Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewables

  • Vet recommended serving of glucosamine and botanical extracts improves joint mobility and provides comfort for pet's visible discomfort.
  • Each tablet is scored - easy to use.
  • Supports cartilage/joint function
  • Alleviates pain associated with exercise

Active ingredients:

  • 500 mg of glucosamine per wafer (99+%)
  • chondroitin sulfate
  • boswellin extract
  • curcumin (turmeric) extract
  • bromelain extract
  • yucca
  • vaitamins A,C.E, B6, B5
  • methionine
  • calcium
  • zinc
  • magnesium
  • manganese
  • copper
  • selenium
  • dried liver powder.

The suggested maintenance level of one Ark Natural Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewable per day works wonders. The Joint Rescue Super Strength Chewable is an all natural joint health formula with 500 mg. of glucosamine per wafer. Pets love the natural liver flavor. Humans love the EASY once a day recommended use!

Once your pet is comfortable and you see no signs of pain or immobility, you may try giving the tablets every other day. Watch your pet and go back to giving it every day, if you see pain and lack of mobility returning. You may also use the maintenance level for normal dogs before they loose mobility and suffer pain. We all have friends and family that swear by the use of Glucosamine; which has remarkable abilities to turn back the hands of time on their abused old joints. It is nice that we can do the same for the pets we love.

Watch for these product for sale. Listing may take some time:

Now we come to Functional, Active Dog & Training Products by Ark Natural

What is a funtional product?

Functional products contain potentially healthful ingredients the result of which may produce attributes such as more freedom of movement and also provide a health benefit beyond the ingredients in the product itself.

Ark Naturals use incredible tasty and healthful at the same time ingredients. The irresistible flavor insures that your dog will be on his best behavior to get his reward. Secondly, it's an efficient way to deliver nutraceauticals that support hip and joint function.

Each strip contains:

  • 56% Real Meat
  • 1000mg of sea cucumber (chondroitin)
  • 500 mg of glucosamine
  • 200 mg of msm

We have chosen to carry Ark Naturals Sea Mobility Venison Jerky; which is a flavor pets will love as much as chicken or beef. I cut the individual strips into 1" pieces to reward in small doses. It is less expensive and is just as affective. It is so much better than a reward that is not healthy. I reward myself with chocolate, but I care more about my pets!

I am starting to own my front gate. I make the dogs quiet down, sit down and act like young ladies when the UPS delivery comes. I reward them with a morsel of healthy real meat, chodroitin, gluscosamine and msm. I am empowered. I own the gate, the dogs are quiet and they are even healthier in the process.
