What Is In An Ear Cleanser For Dogs and Cats? All Natural Ear Cleanser


Most veterinary ear cleansers tend to sting a dog´s ears with their potent chemical ingredients. These cleaners have a synthetic smell to them that is often as unappealing as the ingredients they contain.

The overuse of these artificial cleaning solutions can strip the ear canal of it´s normal protective wax and can predispose your pet to developing a resistant infection.

All Natural Flea, Tick, Lice & Mange Shampoo For Dogs,Cats,Horses,Rabbits,Birds

With Defendex™ You Can. . .

  • Wash away flea, tick, and mange infestation
  • Wash away eggs from sheets, pillows, car upholstery, and other household objects
  • Be certain your pet is not ingesting chemicals or pesticides
  • Receive the product overnight for immediate relief
  • Rest assured that there are no side effects, guaranteed*

There's nothing more frustrating and discomforting than finding lice, flea, tick or mange infestation on your pet. Unfortunately, you can do everything the professionals recommend and still see no results. Worse, some contemporary products contain pesticides, chemicals, and poisons that can be unnecessarily harmful to you and to your pet.

That's why Defendex™ is here. It is an all-natural, hypoallergenic flea and tick shampoo, guaranteed to wash away the infestation on your pet or your money back.

According to The National Center for Health Statistics, over 74% of Americans are choosing to attain great health through natural solutions.


Arguably the most common of skin parasites, the flea thrives in an ideal environment ranging from 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Typically, adult fleas live around three weeks. During this period, a female is capable of laying several hundred eggs.


Ticks are not insects like fleas and lice, but instead are arachnids like spiders and mites. Some cite them as the most irritating skin condition. In the USA alone, there are over two-hundred species of ticks. Ticks are notorious for carrying various types of diseases.



Another irritating skin condition, mange, is caused by parasites embedding themselves into the hair follicles and skin of your pet.

Mange is most prevalent around the eyes, elbow, and knees. It can cause loss of hair, skin damage, and even scaling of the skin. Severe cases of mange can result in anemia.


One of the most common skin parasites are lice. The life cycle a single louse will typically last around 21 days - during which, the louse will feed, lay eggs, and then finally die.

There are two kinds of lice: Annoplura and Mallophaga. Annoplura burrow into your pet's skin and feed on his blood. Mallophaga, on the other hand, simply chew on the exterior skin.

When it comes to ridding an infestation, simply washing your pet won't always do the trick. Many times, parasites are able to lay eggs around your home, on your furniture, and in your sheets.

That's why Defendex™ is a "two in one" product. It can also be used to wash household items, to make sure all the parasites have been washed away.

Defendex™ works on hundreds of different species of skin parasites

Protect Your Pet From Pesticides

Many contemporary pest products contain pesticides, chemicals, and poisons - meant to massacre the bugs. But did you ever stop to think - could these ingredients be harmful to something other than the pests? The answer is yes. Pesticides can be dangerous to not just your pet, your family, and the rest of your household as well.

That's why we are sure you'll love Defendex™. It contains absolutely no pesticides, chemicals, or poisons.

Defendex™ is:

  • A safe and natural solution to fleas, lice, ticks, mange, and all other kind of parasitic bugs
  • Created at standards to be safe for children
  • Biodegradable
  • PH balanced
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Scented with a pleasant peppermint oil


How To Keep Your Pet Healthy In Today's Economy

Are you a pet owner struggling in today’s economy? You’re not alone; as our country’s economy slips further into recession and unemployment rates at the highest in more than a decade, many pet owners are being forced to give their dog or cat the best care they can afford on a limited budget.

Though some may manage this by buying fewer treats and doing more grooming at home, some veterinarians say they’re seeing some pet owners skipping checkups and even cutting back on medications in order to make ends meet. What some pet owners aren’t aware of is the fact that they could be putting their pet’s health at risk.

According to John Hamil, a veterinarian at Canyon Animal Hospital in Laguna Beach, California, infectious diseases, parasitism and degenerative diseases such as heart problems, kidney disease and arthritis can go untreated or unnoticed if your pet skips visits.

Furthermore, waiting until a pet needs emergency care can be a lot more expensive (not to mention nerve-wrecking), than taking necessary steps to prevent or detect a problem.

Some pet owners have been forced to take up a second job which leaves pets spending more time home alone. This change in routines can also wreak havoc on an animal’s digestive and nervous systems and potentially cause numerous emotional problems ranging from separation anxiety and depression, to physical problems such as diabetes and obesity.

Many pet owners have even resorted to feeding pets leftovers in a desperate attempt to keep their beloved animals by their side. If this is the case there are at least some things pet owners should be aware of. Many foods that are healthy for humans can actually be harmful and even fatal when consumed by pets.  
Remember, regardless of what you do to cope with the expenses of having a pet in today’s dwindling economy; natural remedies are always available to help. From preventative care to coping with symptoms, natural remedies can be used effectively to keep your pet healthy and happy without side effects.

Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Pet

  • Chocolate
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Nuts
  • Avocado
  • Pear pips, the kernels of plums, peaches and apricots, apple core pips
  • Potato peelings and green looking potatoes
  • Rhubarb leaves
  • Moldy/spoiled foods
  • Alcohol
  • Yeast dough
  • Coffee grounds, beans & tea
  • Hops (used in home brewing)
  • Tomato leaves & stems
  • Broccoli
  • Raisins and grapes
  • Cigarettes, tobacco, cigars

How To Compare Dog & Cat Foods - Iams,Science Diet,Purina One,Life's Abundance,Beneful and More

Healthypet2 Do you really know what’s in your pet’s food?

Although you may think all pet food manufacturers have your pet’s best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Current pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your pet. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of pet food really contain. Watch this short presentation before you commit to a brand of food for your loving companion.

Here are some simple steps to show you how to compare your brand to Life’s Abundance Dog & Puppy Food.

1. Get your bag of food. Look for the Ingredient Statement on the label.

2. Read the first five ingredients. They play a significant role in the nutritional make-up of a food.

  • Quality Protein? Protein is essential for all bodily functions including those of the brain, heart, skin, skeleton and many others. Life’s Abundance contains at least 26% of high-quality protein including chicken meal. We prefer chicken meal because it is a more concentrated source of protein, as most of the water has been removed.

    Look for identifiable animal proteins such as "chicken meal" rather generic terms like "poultry meal," which can consist of any fowl (turkey, chicken, geese, etc.). You should be aware that some manufacturers use grains such as wheat gluten or corn gluten as less expensive sources of protein.
  • What about grains? Whole grains are an excellent source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other essential minerals. They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your dog. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice and Oat Groats in Life’s Abundance Dog Food.

    Grains like soy, corn, corn gluten, wheat and wheat gluten are generally used as inexpensive sources of protein. Also, these grains are prone to molds, which can be toxic. We will never use these ingredients in Life’s Abundance foods.
  • Are there by-products? Some manufacturers consider by-products inferior sources of protein and, depending on the source, they can be difficult to digest.

    Read the ingredients carefully because current regulations allow some manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your dog.
  • What are the fat sources? We believe the primary fat source in dog food should be animal-based because these fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and generally more available to the body. Life’s Abundance contains chicken fat.

    Animal fats can vary in quality, so look for a species-specific fat like “chicken fat” versus “animal fat” to be certain of the kind of fat your dog is eating.

3. Does your food contain other health-promoting ingredients, such as: a proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals, antioxidant system including vitamins A, C and E, vegetables, fruit, omega fatty acids and direct fed microbials (ingredients similar to those found in supermarket yogurts) to help support healthy immune and digestive systems.

Nature's Recipe


Here’s how to compare your brand to Life’s Abundance Cat & Kitten Food.

1. Get your bag of food. Look for the Ingredient Statement on the label.

2. Read the first 5 ingredients. They play a significant role in the nutritional make-up of a food.

  • What are the protein sources? We believe the primary source should come from quality animal protein, not vegetable protein or grain. Foods that list 2 or more grains in the first 5 ingredients may have more vegetable protein than animal protein.

    Life’s Abundance primary protein is chicken meal. Why? Because chicken meat contains a certain amount of moisture; however, chicken meal is a concentrated source of chicken protein because most of the water has been removed. Therefore, it stands to reason that you get a greater “protein content” in 1 pound of chicken meal versus 1 pound of chicken.

  • What about grains? Two or more grains listed in the first 5 ingredients means your food may have more vegetable protein than animal protein. Grains such as soy, corn, corn gluten and wheat gluten can be difficult to digest, which means less nutrition and more clean up.

    Life’s Abundance lists only 1 grain in the first five ingredients, ground brown rice.
  • Are there by-products? Some manufacturers consider by-products inferior sources of protein and, depending on the source, they can be difficult to digest.

    Life’s Abundance does NOT contain by-products.
  • What are the fat sources? Some fats are better than others. We believe the primary fat source in cat food should be animal based because animal fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and thus are generally more available to the body.

    Life’s Abundance contains chicken fat.

3. Does your food contain other health-promoting ingredients, such as:
    Vegetables, Beet fiber, Antioxidants, Proteinated Minerals, Bacteria cultures.

Your cat deserves the very best food. How does your food measure up?

Natural Treatment For Dog & Cat Skin Problems (Sores,Eczeme,Rashes,Dry Skin,Itchy Skin)

There's nothing worse than discovering a skin condition on your dog. First, you should consult a vet. But many of our customers come to us after finding that conventional products just don't provide adequate results.

Here's the problem - conventional products only confront the symptoms, and not the real source of your dog's skin condition. Look at it this way: if you see a warning light in your car saying low gas - would you confront the symptom and disable the warning light? Or would you confront the source of the problem and fill up your gas tank?

We believe in helping our dogs improve their health naturally, using state-of-the-art technology combined with methods proven over thousands of years.

Skin conditions are some of the most common problems in dogs. Approximately 20-25% of American family pets have skin conditions, including:

  • Sores
  • Eczema
  • Rashes
  • Infections
  • Cuts
  • Dry skin
  • Itchy skin

These conditions can be caused by anything from infection of open bleeds to persistent biting or scratching. Often, a skin problem will start out as nothing more than a minor annoyance. But if left unchecked, they can become incredibly serious. If you've noticed a skin condition on your dog, it's important to take him to a veterinarian immediately.

But when it comes to canine skin problems, many veterinarians are now recognizing the need for holistic treatment. Unlike conventional products which can actually compromise your dog's immune system, Derma-IonX™ works with your dog's skin to help it repair itself naturally.

Derma-IonX™ is the only organic mineral complex that can help your dog conquer his skin problems quickly and effectively. The signature blend of minerals, combined with new oligotherapeutic therapy technology, makes it the most comprehensive pet skin product on the market.

What is Feline Arthritis?

Feline Old Timer for Feline Arthritis

Feline arthritis is any inflammation of the joints including a breakdown in the cartilage cushioning the joints. Cats may become more sensitive to exercise, walking up and down stairs and being touched. Cat arthritis has a variety of causes including previous bone injury, infections, autoimmune diseases and old age. A veterinary examination is critical in identifying the problem. Correct body weight and regular exercise are both key to cat arthritis treatment. Also, remember to keep your cat in a warm, quiet corner at home with a firm, orthopedic foam bed. Try to ensure your cat does not have to go up and down stairs, as this will aggravate the condition. The use of herbs such as those found in Feline Old Timer is recommended to ease the symptoms of cat arthritis, and also to improve the immune system.

Common Symptoms of Cat Arthritis

  • Weakness
  • Limb swelling
  • Stiffness and pain in the joints
  • Lameness
  • Joint dysfunction

Cat arthritis can be debilitating to cats of any age; even a loving pat can be painful. Feline Old Timer is an herbal tonic which helps reduce joint inflammation, restore damaged cartilage and improve the immune system

What Is A Peptic Ulcer?

A peptic ulcer is a sore on the lining of the stomach or duodenum, which is the beginning of the small intestine. Peptic ulcers are common: One in 10 Americans develops an ulcer at some time in his or her life. One cause of peptic ulcer is bacterial infection, but some ulcers are caused by long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs), like aspirin and ibuprofen. In a few cases, cancerous tumors in the stomach or pancreas can cause ulcers. Peptic ulcers are not caused by stress or eating spicy food.

What are the symptoms of an ulcer?

Abdominal discomfort is the most common symptom. This discomfort usually

  • is a dull, gnawing ache

  • comes and goes for several days or weeks

  • occurs 2 to 3 hours after a meal

  • occurs in the middle of the night (when the stomach is empty)

  • is relieved by eating

  • is relieved by antacid medications

Other symptoms include

  • weight loss

  • poor appetite

  • bloating

  • burping

  • nausea

  • vomiting

Some people experience only very mild symptoms, or none at all.

The Correlation Between Depression Treatments and Weight Loss

Conventional medications are known for their side effects, which may range from mild to intense. These side effects can even get dangerous, if not controlled in time. There is a typical correlation between depression treatment and weight loss that needs to be viewed in the right perspective.

It has been seen that some antidepressants have appetite depressant properties. Whereas these antidepressants are approved for treating depression, their use as weight loss solutions is not recommended.

Depression patients are liable to be on medication for a long period of time. The weight loss in most cases is temporary and people tend to regain weight after they stop taking the medication. However, patients taking buproprion, a drug used for treating depression, have reported a substantial weight loss over a period of two years. The drug seems to act on the dopamine receptors in the body that leads to satiation even with smaller quantities of food.

The FDA has detailed strict regulations for how medications should be promoted by manufacturers. There are standards for approval and control that have been detailed for the purpose. But the FDA has no control over physicians who prescribe a drug for a different use from what it is actually approved for. For example, Amphetamines are advertised for treating some types of depression but they are rampantly prescribed for treating obesity. Such practice can prove to be dangerous because these medications have a strong potential for abuse or dependence.

Social views that reflect a certain degree of unwillingness to accept obesity as a disease usually deter obese patients to look for weight loss medications. Obesity is a long lasting and recurrent disease that requires persistent treatment over a protracted period of time. Generally there are two types of drugs prescribed for controlling weight:

* Drugs that suppress appetite or produce a feeling of satiation. These drugs make you feel less hungry by acting on the brain chemicals that control moods and appetite.

* Drugs that inhibit production of an enzyme called lipase. Lipase is a catalyst that helps in breaking down fats into fatty acids for easy absorption by the system. Lesser production means lesser absorption and therefore less fat.

Weight loss medications, even if they are approved and prescribed according to FDA rules, should only be used by patients who have a high medical risk due to their obesity. In addition, drugs can treat obesity only if used in conjunction with natural weight loss routines like exercise, yoga, and an active lifestyle. The same rider applies to those obese patients who opt for herbal weight loss remedies.

If you have problems with your weight it is highly recommended that you explore all aspects of obesity treatment before choosing the one that you feel is most apt.

Should Men & Women Eat Differently To Stay Healthy?

Manwoman When considering what foods to include in (or omit from) your diet, low fat and low sugar aren’t the only things to consider. Nutritional needs also vary depending on your gender.

With the amount of research and studies available, experts have been able to determine that certain conditions are more prevalent in either men or women. It makes sense then to help our bodies by building up an arsenal of defense in the form of vitamins and minerals that can help ward off disease.
Foods Recommended for Optimal Health in Women:
Papaya for a healthy gallbladder and liver.

Scientists from the University of San Francisco, California analyzed the blood of over 13,000 people and found that women who had lower levels of vitamin C were more likely to have gallbladder disease. Papaya packs about twice the vitamin C of an orange, which makes it an amazing tool to prevent gallbladder disease, which afflicts twice as many women as men. Papaya is also great for digestion, which makes it an amazing systemic cleanser, thereby promoting liver health.
Try Liver Dr. ™, an herbal remedy that supports healthy liver functioning
Flaxseed to ward off breast cancer.
According to a report at last year's San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, adding flaxseed to the diet of women with breast cancer effectively slowed tumor growth. This is thanks to the estrogen-like compounds called lignans, highly present in flaxseeds. The easiest way to get these beneficial lignans is to stir a few tablespoons of ground flaxseed in your juice or sprinkle it on your morning cereal. And most importantly, consume the seeds -- there are no lignans in flaxseed oil.
Try Dong Quai ™, an herbal remedy that promotes hormonal balance and helps keep estrogen and progesterone levels within the normal range
Tofu to minimize uncomfortable hot flashes.

Isoflavones, the plant chemicals in soybeans, have a structure similar to estrogen, which may minimize menopausal hot flashes. This was verified by recent studies which suggest that 50 to 76 mg of isoflavones a day may offer some relief from hot flashes. One half-cup of tofu contains about 25 to 35 mg of isoflavones.
Try MellowPause ™, an herbal remedy that helps maintain balanced moods and healthy sleep patterns during menopause
Buffalo meat to prevent anemia.
Due to menstruation, women tend to be anemic more than men. Among other health risks of anemia, low iron levels in blood generally causes severe fatigue. Buffalo meat is not only a great source of iron, but it is also leaner then most other types of red meat. According to Marty Marchello, Ph.D., at North Dakota State University, “The iron content is about 3 milligrams in a 3 1/2-ounce uncooked portion and that portion contains less than 3 grams of fat." Buffalo meat can help boost energy and lower weight. And thankfully, you can now pick it up at many supermarkets across the U.S. or even purchase it on the Internet.
Try AnemiCare ™, a homeopathic remedy that temporarily increases iron absorption to avoid iron deficiency

Collard greens to support bone integrity.
Collard greens aren’t the most popular of greens, but they should be, since they may help fight osteoporosis, which affects many women late in life. Collard greens are high in vitamin K, which is now known to a bone-protective effect as well. According to data from one of the largest studies of women, the Nurses' Health Study, researchers found that women who ate vitamin K-rich foods (at least 109 micrograms of the vitamin daily) were 30 percent less likely to suffer a hip fracture during ten years of follow-up than women who ate less.
Try JointEase Plus ™, an herbal remedy that supports joint and muscular-skeletal system health and mobility
Foods Recommended for Optimal Health in Men:

Tomato sauce for a healthy prostate.
According to a Harvard study, which analyzed the eating habits of more than 47,000 male health professionals, men who eat a lot of tomatoes, tomato sauce, or pizza smothered with the stuff were at a lower risk for developing prostate problems. The carotenoid lycopene, abundant in tomatoes, appeared to be responsible.
Try Prostate Dr. ™, an herbal remedy that promotes prostate gland health, plus urinary tract and immune system functioning
Oysters for optimal levels of testosterone.

There’s the age-old tale of oysters being an aphrodisiac… and there may be science to back it up! Eating just two to three oysters delivers a man’s daily supply of zinc, a critical mineral when it comes to the healthy functioning of the male reproductive system. In one study, 22 men with low testosterone levels and sperm counts were given zinc every day for 45 to 50 days. Both testosterone levels and sperm counts rose.
Try Fertile XY ™, an herbal remedy that supports male reproductive system health and normal testosterone levels
Broccoli and cabbage for a healthy bladder.
Recently, a Harvard study found that vegetables, like broccoli, may offer protection against bladder cancer, one of the most common cancers in the US, and which affects two to three times as many men as women. Researchers analyzed the diets of nearly 50,000 men and discovered that those who ate five servings or more per week of these delicious veggies were half as likely to develop bladder cancer over a ten-year period as men who rarely consumed them.
Try BladderWell ™, a homeopathic remedy that temporarily relieves burning sensations, frequent urination and improves bladder health
Peanut butter for heart health.

Spreading this unctuous butter on to your morning toast can help your heart stay healthy! Although heart disease is the leading killer in both men and women, men fall victim at an earlier age. Pennsylvania State University researchers compared the cholesterol-lowering effect of the American Heart Association's Step II Diet with a higher-fat diet based on peanuts. The AHA plan included more carbohydrates; the peanut regimen contained 36 percent fat. The trial lasted 24 days and both diets lowered "bad" LDL cholesterol.
But, the peanut diet also caused a drop in blood fats called triglycerides and did not decrease HDL, the "good" cholesterol where the AHA diet raised levels of triglycerides and lowered levels of HDL.
Try Cholesto-Rite ™, an herbal remedy that helps maintain cholesterol levels already within normal range, plus promotes complete cardiovascular health

Watermelon for healthy blood pressure.
Until the age of 55, more men are reported to suffer from high blood pressure than women. Luckily, numerous studies have found that food rich in potassium can reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. The findings are so convincing, that the Food and Drug Administration recently granted food labels permission to bear a health claim about the connection between potassium-rich foods and blood pressure. Watermelon is one of the richest sources of this mineral. There’s more potassium in one large slice than the amount found in a banana or a cup of orange juice.
