Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 16, 2004
When it comes to pets, people are returning to basics and checking label ingredients for harmful chemicals. This is confirmed by a 2003 survey that revealed 51% of pet owners are switching to more natural foods and products for their pets. So it comes as no surprise that a ÂchanceÂ encounter with a rescued dog inspired By Vets Only, Inc., a one-year-old holistic pet supplement company. With a mission to help pets lead the greatest life possible, effective products have been formulated that contain high quality, non-toxic and human-grade ingredients. Before release, the products are tested and endorsed by veterinarians, as well as through biochemists and toxicology experts.
Witnessing a pet in pain can be devastating. Millions of dogs and cats are effected every day of their life, making pets miserable and taking away their ability to enjoy the most basic activities. Veterinarians and pet owners agree that one of the biggest problems they face is the difficulty to judge how much pain pets are feeling based solely on their behavior. The problem is magnified by the fact that animals usually do not act as humans would in response to pain. Often overlooked symptoms of pain can include dilated pupils, excessive heart rate, restlessness, lying down without sleeping, rapid breathing and nodding of the head.
According to company founder Bobbie Jo Swartz, animals donÂt have to slow down just because theyÂre old and in pain. They can remain an active part of the family even into their senior years. ÂWhen you consider that 65% of the nationÂs pet population is over five years old,Â she says, ÂitÂs no wonder our products are becoming a hit.Â
The company recently gained interest from veterinarians and consumers who saw amazing improvements in the behavior of dogs and cats with severe pain, with the release of field tested and proven PetaprinÂ. The powerful supplement was developed by a medical doctor and approved by veterinarians as a safe, viable alternative to over-the-counter pain relievers and even some chemical-based prescription remedies with known side effects. The fast acting, all natural chewable pain reliever and anti-inflammatory tablet provides effective relief from joint and muscle pain, arthritis, hip dysplasia, and age-related pain for dogs and cats. Some vets are even using PetaprinÂ pre-surgically to help reduce post-surgical pain and swelling.
ÂThis is one of the best products to be released this decade,Â says Mesa, Arizona veterinarian Thom Myers. ÂThe analgesic releases the same substances into the body as glucosamine to heal joints over the long term and IÂve found that it doesnÂt react with other medications.Â Myers is familiar with Green Lipped Mussel, Feverfew, White Willow Bark and other select herbs, but never in this combination.
In keeping with their mission, By Vets Only is launching a nationwide campaign to help homeless dogs in shelters find the family they deserve. These stressed animals often experience separation anxiety and upset. As a result, they may not present well to the public for adoption.
Customers who purchase any Value Pack, which includes a Shelter Buddy Bottle, will be asked to enter the name and address of a shelter or rescue group in the ÂcommentsÂ section of the online order form. At the end of each month the company will ship the Shelter Buddy Bottle of PetaCalmÂ , an amazing new peanut butter-flavored calming remedy to the shelter specified by the customer. The goal is to reduce the stress and anxiety of dogs in shelters, helping them become more adoptable and find loving homes faster.
