Pet Alive Sinu-Rite

What are the sinuses? The sinuses are bony cavities in the skull that meet up with the nasal cavities. Inside the sinuses, we find tiny hair-like projections called cilia, which help to move mucus produced by the sinus towards a tiny hole (called the ostium) through which mucus drainage occurs, helping to keep the sinuses clear. The natural way .

The immune system plays a large part in promoting health in all parts of the body, including the sinuses. Using a more holistic approach, natural remedies can help to safely support sinus health and can also play an important role in maintaining immune system health and functioning. Due to the high safety profile of the ingredients, our natural remedies are also free of side effects.

How has Sinu-Rite helped others? “My 9-year old beagle has been suffering for quite a long time with congestion. After a few days of using Sinu-Rite, her congestion has improved. She is not snoring as bad, or having the middle of the night breathing problems, and the discharge from her nose is no longer a thick white “rubber-cement type” mucous. She even seems to have more energy and a better appetite. At this point, I definitely recommend this product, and will check back in a few weeks with another update of this testimonial.” —Janet, MO, USA “We’ve had Indy, a mixed beagle, for a little over a year. We noticed early on that he had dripping and sneezing on a daily basis. He was miserable. We brought him to 2 different vets, spent over a thousand dollars. After numerous [procedures], each time they worked for a while, but it would come back. Finally they recommended more costly tests such as MRIs.. I could not afford the procedures and feared the real possibility of putting him down. Desperate, I finally went on the internet and found PetAlive’s Sinu-Rite. It’s a miracle; Indy is back to his old energetic self and has stayed that way for almost a month now. Thanks to your product we have our Indy back.” —Gerard L, CA, USA “My Rat Terrier started wheezing, his nose was stuffy and he was snorting and kept me up all night. I was so worried he was going to stop breathing so I could not sleep. I starting giving him [medication for children] and that worked very little and dried him up terribly. So I went online looking for Holistic Medication and came across PetAlive. Placed an order for a few items and one was the Sinu-Rite. Well by the second tablet, my Rat Terrier was energetic and could breath and stopped wheezing. This product is so awesome, I was flabbergasted at how fast and effective it worked. Thank You, Native Remedies.” —Rose M., FL, USA

Dogs Deserve The Best we Can give Them

Standard

There are those that question , are some of us humanizing dogs too much?

Expensive outfits, designer Collars, organic treats and feed, human grade vegan grooming products…

When this is in reference to cute , frilly outfits,having for the most part owned Doberman’s, German Shepherds and other large breed dogs, cute, frilly or matching outfits are not my accessory of choice, but an occasional collar charm, a decorative bandana are not out of the question, and if the dogs decked out in pinks and frills enjoy oohs, aahs and extra attention because of it …why not?

When it comes to health care, I do have a strong opinion and that is I feel dogs deserve the best health benefits and treatments that pet owners and science can provide them. Every day their presence in our lives is scientifically proven to provide us with numerous life enhancing and medical benefits. Why would we not want to provide them with the same?

 

As science begins to recognize not only the long known and accepted emotional advantage of pets interaction with their people, but also the documented evidence of how the companionship of our pets lower blood pressure which in turn helps to prevent heart disease ,the health and wellness factor of pets is leading to even more in-depth benefits to human healthcare.

According to an article by the editor of Your Dog, American Association of Pet Product Manufactures, Pet interaction can even ultimately lower health care costs. Since stress has now been identified as one of the leading causes behind many diseases and scientific research has proven that pets lower stress levels.

Service dogs that can sense oncoming potentially life threatening medical conditions can alert their human in time to prevent a potentially more costly health crisis. Other studies our showing that autistic children are benefitting from close interaction with specially trained dogs.

So when I hear someone say, human grade ingredients , natural and organic treats and skin care products may be good for people , but are we going to far by integrating them into our dogs lifestyle, I have to reply , where would our lifestyle be without the enrichment of dogs in it?
