Hi everyone, CEO Olivia. Today I’m continuing my bark out about my supplements. Just like humans, we dogs can suffer from food allergies. Corn, soy & various grains are common examples. Symptoms can include hives, inflammation, upset tummy, vomiting & diarrhea. In the case of hives, scratching can lead to skin infections, aggravating the immune system even more.
Furthermore, not all commercial dog foods are very nutritious. They lack beneficial bacteria because it’s been cooked out of them. This can lead to stomach issues such as indigestion & gas. I must confess, I used to be a little on the gassy side.
What’s a good dog or cool cat to do?
Suzie Q, the cats & myself get Probiotic 8 Plus with our meals. It has been blended to promote healthy gut flora in good dogs & cool cats. It also provides us with B vitamins, trace minerals, & enzymes that make digestion & absorption of nutrients more efficient. The herbs in Probiotic 8 Plus are beneficial to the colon, preventing diarrhea & loose stools. In simple terms it makes the gut run smoothly with peak efficiency.
Probiotic 8 Plus is a green powder. huMom simply sprinkles the right amount into our food. Jerry Underfoot always waits for his “sprinkles”.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. As I’ve mentioned, this month I want to discuss the supplements I take to help me cope with my AED’s (anti epilepsy drugs) & to keep me in good health. In today’s environment, we could all use a little help, not just we epi-warriors.
Today I’m barking about my Kidney supplement. My medications can be harsh on my organs, especially my kidneys & liver. Four times a year, my huMom gives me Kidney Tone which is made by Omega Alpha. We have been using Omega Alpha products for several years now(note: Yes, we have started to sell Omega Alpha products this year but we are not being paid to endorse them. We sell them because we use them & believe in their effectiveness).
The kidneys filter & remove toxins from the blood. If they are stressed from overwork they can be compromised & won’t function well. Over time this can lead to serious organ damage that can be fatal.
Kidney Tone is a detoxing formula made for both good dogs & cool cats. Everyone here takes it seasonally, even the cat’s Dottie & Jerry Underfoot. It’s a liquid herbal concoction based on both Chinese & western medicine. Just like soap makes for cleaner dishes, Kidney Tone helps cleanse the kidneys with it’s special herbs & antioxidants. Keeping the blood clean prevents disease like cancer from having a toxic environment suited to it’s growth. The less toxic you are the better you can absorb nutrients as well.
Kidney Tone also helps me pee out more toxins & can help keep my urinary tract healthy.
Do any of my fellow epi-warriors take supplements? If so, please share.
Next week I will be barking about my liver cleanser.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. My huMom & I were looking over my seizure activity journal & noticed since I began supplementing my meals with Taurine the amount of Grand Mals I’ve experienced has gone down. It’s becoming more common for me to only show what used to be my postictal behavior such as dashing about & being very agitated, which might suggest I’m close to an event threshold but not breaking through or I could be having focal seizures.
This morning I leaped out of bed. I was very agitated & needed to run. At times I would crouch down & whine. HuMom gave me Keppra, which is my cluster buster & once it took affect I was calm. But again, I had no Grand Mal & it seems the Taurine may be helping me. We will discuss this with my good vet.
This month, on Monday’s I’m going to discuss the supplements I take to help me fight the monster & keep me in top health. My kidneys & especially my liver need all the support I can give them & I do this with all natural, herbal products. I also have probiotics added to my meals because my meds are hard on my digestive system & we all know a healthy gut is important.
I’d also like to know what supplements my fellow epi warriors might take.
CEO Olivia ❤
