Dear Health Freedom Advocate,
I’m a proud pet owner and my wife and I have a couple of wonderful dogs and a couple of cats.
Of course, we love our animals, so I’m not surprised at how often we get calls here from customers asking if they can give our supplement products that work so great for them to the family pet.
Sometimes the answer is yes, and other times the answer is no. It all depends on the type and size of the pet, the type of supplement, and any other extenuating circumstances like if the pet is on medication.
Different types of pets have different needs. What might be good for a cat might not be beneficial for a dog. And vice versa. As you probably know, we often tell our customers to consult with their doctor before taking a particular nutritional supplement. I think the same thing goes for pets. Before starting your dog or cat on a supplement regime, please do check with your veterinarian.
Having said all this, I’d like to share a personal story about pet supplementation.
Jake was a cat we had some years back. Jake started having difficulty walking, had poor balance, and his hind legs appeared to be in pain. At that time in our life we could not afford the several hundreds of dollars for medication the vet recommended. After consulting with a few of my friends, I put together a formula for Jake that included aspirin, vitamin E, coenzyme Q-10, and vitamin B-6, amongst other things. After two weeks Jake was fine, fending off all the other neighborhood cats, and he lived several more healthy years.
Our dog Marta was similar … her weak and painful hind legs got so bad we had to assist her in exiting the house when nature called. I gave her Joint Freedom™, and Omega Advantage™, and she was soon back to her young self, and I think this added a couple of years to her active life.
So you see, pets and supplements do mix. If you love your pets like we love ours, please do consider providing them with quality supplements.
