Shaklee products can have a huge impact on our pets lives as well. Shadow is a gentle and lovable mixed breed dog that was rescued 6 years ago from the Humane Society. At the time he was estimated to be approximately 2 years old and very healthy. During this past year he began showing signs of serious discomfort with his hips and back legs and he became progressively worse. A visit to the vet resulted in a diagnosis of spondylitis of the spine which causes severe stiffness and pain in the lower back and buttocks.
The prescribed treatment was prednisone and pain meds. We wanted him WELL!His condition worsened to the point that he visibly showed signs of stress in his total appearance and finally was unable to walk without serious pain. We eventually constructed a ramp at the back door to assist him in getting in and out of the house and finally he was at the point, which required that we carry him outside to go to the bathroom. We have been involved with the Shaklee Corporation for 30 years and experienced amazing health recovery results for people using Shaklee’s exceptional nutritional products. We felt it was time to put these products to the test for Shadow as well, before we would have to make the decision to mercifully put him to sleep.
He sits up and begs, he is able to jump into his favorite chair, he goes up and down the back steps without hesitation, he is once again chasing the rabbits and squirrels in the back yard. He plays with his toys again like a puppy and he has been restored to a happy and a healthy pet.
How to Keep Pets Healthy During the Holidays
We spoke with some well-known area veterinarians to get their advice on what families can do to protect their beloved pets. Morris Animal Inn in Morristown is unlike any other pet care facility because they retain a veterinarian on-call 24 hours a day and a full-time Pet Wellness department. Hospital-grade cleaning equipment, smoke and fire detection, and backup generators ensure pet safety. Hypoallergenic options are available to pets with allergies or sensitive skin. Nail trim packages and soothing massage enhance pet comfort.
Older pets or animals with arthritis are given special attention, with frequent short exercises and plenty of quiet time as needed. Pet parents are encouraged to contact Morris Animal Inn as soon as possible when making their holiday plans. These added comforts will decrease any separation anxiety experienced by the pet. Dr. Stacey Rebello at NorthStar VETS in Robbinsville advises that pet owners should be particularly careful of what pets are ingesting during the holidays.
For indoor pets, including hamsters, guinea pigs and/or certain cats, the ingestion of holiday decorations or tree ornaments is not uncommon, but can pose terrible risks. It is helpful to get your pet accustomed to riding in the car ahead of the vacation. Taking brief car rides to a nearby park or around town will acclimate your pet, so that they won’t always associate the car with a trip to the doctor’s office.
