Order the GREEN bottle of Shampoo ..  it's called HOT spot shampoo... it's for all skin that is dry or itchy.. SOOTHING and Healing -- GET it from the NuVET Folks 




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why do the  NuVET Supplement Treats Help the Shedding????

Without proper nourishment shedding problems can go beyond its skin and coat and will continuously be in a state of stress.
If you feed your dog dry commercial dog food, be certain that the first ingredient listed is meat such as beef, poultry, lamb or fish.

A dog sometimes creates an impulse to lick at a specific area of shedding coat, characterized by persistent, obsessive licking and chewing at the target area. Commonly, though, most cases have a suspected cause such as boredom, separation anxiety, frustration, confinement, or even a minor physical origin such as a tiny abrasion that captivates the dog’s interest. If the dog persists in traumatizing the shedding problem area, then symptoms such as “hot spots” can develop. Repeated episodes of self-mutilation, partial healing, then repeated trauma and healing, result in severe and disfiguring scarring. Deep bacterial infections are common and permanent skin damage results when a dog shedding problem escalates from a few hairs to big tufts of fur.

Ensuring healthy skin and hair is important.
Dry skin can lead to dog having an extreme shedding problem. These skin conditions can be very itchy or painful and prompt your dog to scratch himself excessively.

Only Natural ingredients used for easy digestion

Every ingredient we use is easy for your dog's body to absorb. In this way, all nutrients are quickly used by your pet's metabolism, providing the full benefit of each crucial ingredient.

This supplement will not interfere with any drugs your dog may be taking.  Even if your dog accidentally eats too much, he or she will generally be safe from adverse reactions.

Only using natural, human-grade, water soluble ingredients, this supplement will NOT irritate your dog even if he or she has a sensitive stomach.

Re: Alopecia - My itchy dog:

I ran out dogfood and gave my aussie doodle kibbles and bits. She stated biting herself and chewing the hair into little balls of fluff. Should I try benadryl?

Cat food recipes; diabetic cat?; cats with kidney stones and struvites; home-cooking for cats; Cat Health and Nutrition questions; NuVet Feline Supplement ; feeding your new kitten; Natural Feline care;
Hello, I would be glad to help on kitten and cat feeding. Need help with choosing a new cat food? CAT food Reviews? I can also explain the good and bad of cat food ingredients.... Does your cat have troubles with digestion? Just ask me. Basic cat medical questions are welcome, too. Need help with supplements, vitamins or special diets, and recipes too - Cat food recipes... Please make sure you give me your cat's weight, brand of food you are feeding and detailed problem-  Please know that I am a Nurse and not a Vet.. See your local Vet for any urgent issues





Cats with kidney issues; 

Supplements and good home Cooking will do the trick:

Home-cooking is the best you can do..

Show your VET the Recipe... ( you can educate him/her) on proper feeding with home-made special diets:
My Advice is NOT in place of Vet Care;



First - good to have daily for cats with urinary problems ; 

Cranberry Supplement -   Give 1 dosage  per day per cat -  Open and hide in food.
this one is good ; ( powder )
Solid Gold  Company ;




As for food : 

here are some recipes for cats with urinary problems/  helps to keep away the UTIs and stones.

ALTERNATIVE to  Hill's RX food ; home cooking for cats with crystals ; stones; feline UTI; 

You need a low/ med  protein and low phosphorus food. 

A low-grain food for UTI and struvite control in cats:  

WE have had great luck with this diet:

Cats with Kidney Problems 


4 parts carbohydrate:   
Pureed barley flakes -  ( barley flakes can be found in the baby food area)
( you can also do some white rice but cats do like Barley flakes better ) 


2 parts protein:   
Lightly broiled chicken or beef ** (you can also use baby food chicken )
You can use a Dash of Olive oil with the beef
Do NOT fry 


1 part vegetable: 
Chopped alfalfa sprouts are best.  CARROT Juice is a great item to try - Just 1/8 cup 
CATS are not too fond of veggies...

MUST be pureed to digest  *( YOU can skip this if your cat doesn't like the veggies)- just try the carrot juice.  

2 teaspoons soft butter 

Cook at 350 for 15-20 minutes .


I cook all my meats.

A must for cats on home cooking ; 



NuVET supplement each day:
Most of my clients use NuVET Plus Feline -- 

Please add   1/2 to 3/4   teaspoon NuVet Cat powder  per day - per cat / of the NuVET feline powder/  this is a vitamin and much needed for cats when home cooking. 
  ( Will Balance out the home cooking )
**********
Otherwise, they will not get the vitamins and minerals they need to stay healthy.  **********


Order: ( sold here at NuVET Labs in California)
NuVET for cats:
  ( A PORTION of the proceeds will go to Peaceful Surroundings Pet Sanctuary when you order using my link and code ( 81098 ) 
NuVET is Excellent: (* Holistic and Not in the pet stores )

I have an alternative recipe to the Hill's i/d food for cats; 

We have had many clients with Pancreas and liver disease use this recipe with success.

Feed your cat an easily digestible, low-fat diet if the diagnosis is pancreas or liver issues;
*Pass this recipe by your VET. 
 Disclosure;  Please remember I am not a Vet  

Cooked or boiled chicken (no skin or bones) and rice is a safe choice. 

*Do not feed your cat treats, particularly those high in fat.


Feline Feeding: 

CAT food recipe:



Meat 98%  ( lightly cook all meats)

   ground  turkey  1 pound- cook
      or
   ground  chicken -  cook  1 pound 


Rice -  White rice / 2 cups to every pound of meat.  ( boiled white rice)

(STAY away from Beef for now)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Vegetables 1%: 

OPTIONAL --- not sure how your cat will do with this:  *( do a test)

   puréed juiced, raw or steamed -- this should ideally be a salad. 

only feed salad occasionally --- Cats mainly need meat:

YOU can puree up a few veggies - Very small amount - 1/2 cup of puree to 1 pound of meat...

Many cats seem to do well with mush-up sprouts 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~








** a good quality supplement for your cat:  ( NuVET feline )

MOST of our Clients use : 
NuVET Feline Formula

Give 1/2 teaspoon per day - mix into some meat or tuna.
( Start off slowly with just 1/2 per day and work into the full NuVET dosage down the road)
Most cats take 3/4 to 1 full teaspoon per day.
