Natural Solutions for Dealing With Your Good Dog’s & Cat’s Anxieties

Health, News

 

 

HuMom pulled the Howloween box from the closet yesterday; we all know what that means.  Silly costumes that amuse the humans will be forced upon us furleggers & feathered furiends. Giggling spiritedly dressed children & alike will be roaming the streets & knocking on our doors.  CEO Olivia here today to bark about this trickery or treatery celebration & it’s pawsible effects on your good dog & or cat.

Not all of us furlegged or feathery critters enjoy the company of others outside the pack.  In fact a recent study done in Finland (author MIlla Salonen) analyzed the behaviors of 13, 715 good Finland dogs (264 different breeds). The study’s data  found 72.5% of the dogs experienced anxiety-like behaviors.

I’ll chew this down for you it.  32% had noise sensitivity & they were frightened of at least one sound; for 26% it was fireworks.  General fearfulness affected 29% of the good dogs. While 17% of dogs surveyed were afraid of other good dogs, 15% feared strangers & 11% had a fear of a tale of their own.  It’s a stressful world out there even for us pampered pups & felines & that’s why with Howloween & Howlidays approaching we wanted to share with you some natural solutions to helping your good dog or good cat with their anxiety.

E-Z Rest is an easy – to – use, better absorbed liquid formulation that has been specifically formulated with us dog’s & cat’s anxieties in mind.  The 3 herbs Albizia julibrissin (Silktree Flower), Biota orientalis (Arborvitae Seed), Ziziphus jujuba (Jujube Fruit) in E-Z Rest are referred to as nervines (herbs that specifically help support the nervous system) that act on the central nervous system which in turn help calm your furlegger’s anxieties.

EnduraStress helps to bring a sense of calm, concentration & mental focus to support your furleggers. The 5 herbs in EnduraStress Panax quinquefolius (North American Ginseng Root), Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng Root), Astragulus membranaceus (Astragulus Root),  Codonopsis pilosula (Bellfower Root), & Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha Root) are adaptogenic herbs meaning they have health benefits for dealing with stress.  They are synergistic (interacting or cooperating giving rise to a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts) in the formulation to reduce physical & mental stress.

CBD Oil is this dog’s choice but I have used both EZ Rest & EduraStress & found them to be a pawsome choice to help relieve anxiety & stress.  CBD is also known as adaptogen. We know adaptogens assist the body in adapting to the different stress & anxiety faced by us furleggers. CBD does this while also pawmoting long term resilience of body & mind. Since taking CBD I have had over 7.5 months seizure free & that’s why it makes sense that I would rely on CBDs pawsome support.

CALM for good dogs alleviates your dog’s anxiety, stress, & fear with their holistic 550 mg full spectrum (CBD) tincture, CALM tincture is formulated with lavender essential oil, to improve your good dog’s  health & well-being while naturally relieving separation anxiety, stress, noise anxiety, fear of thunder, fear of storms, fireworks, & more.

CALM for cool cats alleviate your cool cat’s anxiety, stress, & fear with their holistic 120 mg full spectrum extract (CBD) tincture, CALM tincture is formulated to improve your cool cat’s health & well-being while naturally relieving separation anxiety, stress, noise anxiety, fear of thunder, fear of storms, fireworks, & more.

Knotty Toys for Good Dogs is a proud affiliate partner with Charlotte’s WebCharlotte’s Web hemp extract products with CBD were dogsigned with your good dog’s best life in mind. Created to help keep your dog calm & relaxed while pawmoting healthy hips, joints & skin.

Stress & anxiety can have dogbilitating effects on a human’s health.  Stress in dogs & cats acts much the same way. Not only can it exacerbate existing physical conditions, but it can lead to a number of problems often considered behavioral.  But luckily, there’s a lot you can do to support your good dog or cool cat.  By paying attention to their behvior, you can identify the signs & causes of their stress & help your furlegger chill out with one of knottytoysforgooddogs.com natural solutions.

Canine Culture, News

 

For those of you that have been  following our blog you know that I have lived with canine epilepsy since I was 9 months old; I’m 11 years young as I paw this today. CEO Olivia here to bark about another Canine Epilepsy Warrior named Rosie.

 

 

Epilepsy Warrior Rosie the Labradoodle  who is celebrating 4 month seizure free; congratulations my furiend & fellow Epilepsy Warrior,  & her huMom have written a pawtastic children’s book.  This pawsome picture rhyme book may have been written for children ages 2 – 5 but anyone who love us good dogs & reading about wooftastic road trips will pawsitively enjoy this pupblication. Rosie shares her wagnificent dogventures as she travels in her blue van through the different cities of Arizona.  Rosie teaches us about animals, plants, climate & state facts;  she even includes interactive games throughout her pawsome book.

 

 

 

 

Epilepsy Warrior Rosie & her huMom hope to raise enough money to help pay for Rosie’s blood work & medical cost with the sale of her pupblication.  We know the expense of caring for an Canine Epilepsy Warrior all to well; it can be pawsitively challenging.  So we ask for those who can to take a look & pawhaps purchase Rosie’s book to help them.  It would make a pawfect Holiday or Birthday gift for someone you love.

Olivia’s Special Blend is Coming!

Health, News

 

Last week I barked about what goes into each of my wooftastically pawpared meals in blog post ‘Food Is Love‘.   Hi CEO Olivia here & this week I want to bark about WellyChef which is what huMom uses as my food base, . We have been using & selling WellyChef for years.  Before that huMom would have to go out & purchase multiple veggies & ingredients, wash & prep it all to create my food base before adding the proteins & supplements.  That took too much time away from my love & play time.  Now, she can feel confident that John Leveris, the founder of WellyTails who holds a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Honors Degree with specialization in Animal Nutrition & Genetics from the University of Guelph (1982) has done all that work for her & all she needs to do is simply add water which means more time for me. Recently, WellyChef changed their ingredients slightly which isn’t a big deal for most good dogs but for us Epilepsy Warriors it is. Those changes include rosemary extract which is used as a natural preserve & can be a seizure trigger for those who live with canine epilepsy. The other change is the addition of the new ingredient quinoa which is naturally low in sodium & rich in fiber & protein, making it a filling, nutritious replacement for refined grains. It has considerably more calcium, iron, & protein than other grains.  Although a pawsome ingredient for most good dogs & considered a health food, quinoa is high in carbs & rates high on the glycemic index &  should be extremely limited on a low carb or keto diet which is what this Epilepsy Warrior follows.

 

New WellyChef Veggies & Fruit Quinoa & Chia Seeds

 

THE GOOD NEWS is, huMom has reached out to John at WellyChef & explained all this to him.  Being a wooftastic guy who cares about all dogs, he created ‘Olivia’s Special Blend’ of WellyChef & it is being shipped to us today!  We’ll have it available at our store knottytoysforgooddogs.com in the next coming weeks. If you want the regular WellyChef blend, that is still available also at knottytoysforgooddogs.com.  Check out this pawtastic receipe booklet WellyChef designed to help us create a homemade dog food that meets all AAFCO Adult Dog requirements.  It so simple to do with WellyChef Homemade Dog Food Done Right Base Mix.
