Binky's Supplement - Dog Health



Nothing is more important to me than the health of my Binky Boo!  I try to do everything I have control over to keep her healthy and happy. To do that I start off her day with a NuVet Plus vitamin, followed by breakfast with Complete Probiotics, and Krill Oil. I put those two in some cooked chicken, which she always accepts. She's quite picky with food. Because the chicken is cooked I also add some Digestive Enzymes. Mid day, during grooming she chews on a eco-friendly bamboo tooth brush to keep her mouth occupied as I brush her hair. On the toothbrush I put 1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil, that she licks right up. 

When needed, or at least once a week I give her a portion of the Liver and Kidney Support for pets to keep her organs in tip top shape. Other supplements I have for her to help support her organs and immune system include Curcumin for pets and Organic Mushroom Complex for pets. I also have some Zen Pet to give her before stressful events, that she hasn't tried yet, all purchased on the Mercola site.
 

NuVet Plus® is the culmination of 8 years of research and development, formulated with the goal of creating a nutrient-rich formula that would surpass mere vitamin replenishment.

I'm still not 100% on board with putting Binky on a parasite preventative medicine for her entire life, but at this time this is the custom protection prescribed by her vet. 

Ensuring adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids has a profoundly supportive effect on your pet's overall health.

It's so important that I had to figure out a unique (and easy) way to help you supplement your pet's diet.

If you've ever taken on the task of cutting open fatty acid oil capsules, you will be thrilled at this next bit of news I'm about to share.
You no longer have to deal with messy pills.

For my Krill Oil for Pets, we use a revolutionary dispensing method that keeps freshness in and contamination out.

A technologically-advanced airless pump delivery system locks air and contaminants outside the container.

And there's no guessing. One or more gentle strokes of your fingertip delivers the precise amount of Krill Oil spray (just one spray for every 5 to 10 pounds of body weight). No mess. No sticky, oily fingers. Just the right amount of healthy omega-3 fatty acids exactly where you want it!

You'll even save money since there's no waste. You're assured that the oil at the bottom of the container is just as fresh and pure as the first spray.

Plus, my Krill Oil for Pets is completely sustainable, and is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), a global leader in sustainability standards.
In a recent sustainability report of 24 fisheries by NGO Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), the fishery that supplies the krill for our Krill Oil for Pets was awarded the only “A” rating for sustainability and management strategy.

The fishery uses patent pending technology that helps ensure unwanted by-catch (non-krill species) aren’t caught, and that the krill are kept alive until processing in order to maintain freshness and nutrients. You can even trace Krill Oil for Pets back to its sustainable place of harvest using the coordinates on the bottle! 

To be frank, today’s commercial pet foods lack healthy natural enzymes. In essence, the food is dead, over-processed and in-organic. Production of both canned food and dried kibble require very high temperatures, which destroy any live enzymes present in the food. Enzymes are needed to help unlock these food nutrients and aid in digestion.



$14.97  Healthy Pets Digestive Enzymes (5.26 oz): 1 container
 As your pet ages, production of enzymes declines. And this can lead to unwanted consequences for your pet.
Using only the finest ingredients available, I’ve selected these enzymes to include in my Healthy Pets Digestive Enzymes:
  • Betaine HCl - break down proteins into peptides and amino acids and fats into triglycerides
  • Bromelain (pineapple) – one of the safest and most powerful  enzymes to help break down and digest protein
  • Papain (papaya) – a natural plant-sourced enzyme that works  together with bromelain to digest protein
  • Pancreatin – an animal-based pancreatic enzyme providing all three of these enzymes:

    • Protease – helps break down proteins into amino acids for digestion
    • Amylase – for splitting and breaking down long-chain carbohydrates, including starch and glycogen (the energy-storage molecule in animal tissue) for digestion in the small intestine
    • Lipase – helps break down and digest fats
When used this way, after meals, the enzymes circulate throughout her body via the bloodstream, helping to:
  • Support the healthy circulation of blood through arteries
  • Maintaining normal immune function
  • Clear cellular debris while cleansing tissue
  • Stimulate healthy new cell growth
  • Promote normal cell growth
  • Promote a healthy immune response
  • Support normal detoxification processes
  • Clear away undigested proteins, cleansing the lymph and blood
Unlike so many animal supplements available today, the ingredients used in my Healthy Pets Digestive Enzymes are human grade – meaning, they’re not any different than those you or I would take.
Mercola Healthy Pets Liver and Kidney Support is a product that I've personally formulated, based on my extensive research and experience. I've brought together a total of 14 nutrients to support your pet's kidney and liver health.

And I'm excited to say there's nothing like it on the market…

Liver & Kidney Support contains a blend of 14 ingredients:
  • L-Glycine
  • Phosphatidylcholine
  • Meriva Curcumin Phytosome
  • Taurine
  • Milk Thistle
  • N-Acetyl L-Cysteine
  • Resveratrol
  • Schisandra Extract
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract (decaffeinated)
  • L-Glutathione
  • Chlorella
  • Superoxide Dismutase
  • Dandelion (leaf)
  • Silica
You can use Liver & Kidney Support daily, monthly, quarterly, or yearly, depending upon your pet's exposure and overall vitality:
  • If your pet spends time outdoors and may be exposed to toxins.
  • If your pet is relatively healthy and not exposed to a great deal of toxins indoors or out (a "green" home and lawn).
Liver & Kidney Support's ingredients are safe for regular, daily use.



The first-ever bioavailable curcumin formulated for dogs and cats, my Curcumin for Pets offers your pet a major stride in supporting his health.

What is curcumin? Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Along with curcumin, there are two other important curcuminoids in turmeric. You’ll find all three in my Curcumin for Pets.


How might your pet potentially benefit from Curcumin?
  • Support for a normal immune response
  • Increased protection from free radical damage
  • Support for normal healthy digestion and gut defense
  • Support for a normal inflammatory response
  • Support for comfortable, flexible movement
One of the biggest challenges with curcumin in humans and dogs and cats is its poor absorption and bioavailability. Curcumin tends to be unstable at intestinal pH levels and is quickly eliminated from the body.

We use advanced technology to enhance the bioavailability of Curcumin for Pets. MicroActive® technology creates micro-particles of curcumin that helps protect the fragile, active nutrients until they reach the absorption site. And it provides “sustained release” of nutrients over time so your pet may benefit from more efficient absorption.

No matter what you feed your pet – raw, canned, or dry food – Organic Mushroom Complex for Pets provides extra support your pet may need.

  • Does not contain additives, fillers, gluten, and unhealthy levels of heavy metals

Many everyday events can stress even laid-back pets - thunderstorms, fireworks, car trips, vet visits, grooming, boarding, and guests.
I've created Zen Pet to help comfort your pet during occasional stressful times using a custom blend of all my favorite calming agents. Safe for both cats and dogs, I have used each of these ingredients for years:
  • Organic Holy Basil (or Tulsi) - From our certified organic growers in India
  • L-Theanine - Stimulates mentally alert, yet calming, alpha brain waves
  • Organic Rhodiola rosea - A true adaptogen harvested in Siberia
  • Ashwagandha (or Indian Ginseng) - Another exceptional adaptogen to help your pet's body adapt to physical, chemical, and environmental stress
  • German Chamomile - A popular herb with calming qualities
  • 5-HTP - Converts to serotonin which supports feelings of well-being
  • GABA - Helps tell the brain to slow down during times of stress
  • Vitamin B6 - Supports a healthy nervous system and mood, and helps with serotonin production
Zen Pet is intended for occasional use before or during stressful events. Although it works best if given to your pet a day in advance, you can still use it at the beginning of the event. Simply stir chicken-flavored Zen Pet into your pet's food or feed with a treat.
