Dogs and cats frequently suffer from skin conditions which can be caused by a variety of different reasons such as fleas, food intolerance or allergy. You may notice your pet licking excessively, itching or nibbling at the skin. The skin itself could be inflamed and red, or scurfy and dry. There may be hair loss or even pustules and broken skin. Herbal medicines such as Mixed Vegetable tablets and the use of appropriate supplements have been shown to be very useful in the treatment and control of skin conditions, with negligible side effects and they can be given alongside any other conventional medicine prescribed by your vet.
Here are a few tips on avoiding some skin conditions in your pets:
Don't let your pet sleep in your bed...tempting as it might be! Dust mites in your bedding can cause or aggravate skin problems.
Wash your pet's bedding regularly.
Try to feed your pets a natural diet using hypoallergenic food.
Don't treat your dogs with any synthetic processed treats, especially those with artificial colourings as they can cause or exacerbate the problem. The handmade, natural biscuits from The Little Pet Biscuit Company are perfect and contain no artificial colours or flavours.
Arthritis and Rheumatism are conditions which are more commonly seen in older dogs and cats. The first sign may be stiffness when getting up after sleeping or exercise. Osteo-arthritis can occur in younger animals and your pet will have inflammation of the joints, maybe with swelling, pain and restriction of movement. Rheumatism affects the muscles and will be more noticeable during the colder, wetter winter months. There is no cure for either condition, but herbal medicines, given in conjunction with the correct diet and suitable supplements are effective in relieving pain, making movement easier and may delay the progress of the condition.
If your pet suffers from Arthritis or Rheumatism, then exercising may be painful or uncomfortable for them. Keep their exercise regime gentle and only do as much as your pet feels comfortable doing. Don't cut it out altogether though, as a little is good for their continued mobility and well-being.
Mixed Vegetable tables contain natural anti-inflammatory compounds which will relieve pain and help improvement mobility.
Older cats and some breeds of dog are susceptible to problems with their kidneys and urinary function. Bladder and urinary problems should always be referred to your vet to rule out any serious conditions.
Diets may be a factor in kidney conditions and in general, dried processed foods should be avoided as they may aggravate the situation.
Herbal medicines can help maintain kidney function and Mixed Vegetable tablets have a mild diuretic action which, when fed daily, will improve urinary flow and help keep the kidneys functioning effectively.
Mixed Vegetable tablets are also useful in the treatment of Cystitis and Urinary Tract Infection as they assist in the removal of uric acid and maintain a good urinary flow. If given in conjunction with Garlic & Fenugreek tablets then this will help to treat any infection present.
Bladder and urinary incontinence most commonly occurs in spayed bitches and they may leak urine involuntarily. Mixed Vegetable tablets have been found to be very helpful in these cases as their mild diuretic action helps ensure the bladder is emptied completely when your pet urinates.
Diet plays an important parts in the maintenance of these conditions, for example, red meat and dairy products are thought to aggravate arthritis. If your pet is overweight, then this will cause undue stress on their joints.
