All-natural dog remedies can make vacation travel with dogs easier.
Meridian, ID (PRWEB) May 14, 2011
A new all-natural, topical first aid kit for canines is proving popular for vacations with dogs, says Callie Novak, CEO of Dynamite Specialty Products. The first aid kit, along with all-natural, raw dog food that needs no refrigeration, will makes travel less stressful.
The Topical First Aid Kit from Dynamite contains all-natural remedies and is an excellent adjunct to a traditional first aid kit for both dogs and their human companions. It has eight different products, including Trace Minerals Concentrate to stop bleeding; Would Balm, an all-natural topical salve for bruises, strains, burns and wounds; and Wound Wash, a proprietary blend of food-grade fatty acids, organic lavender essential oil and other ingredients that cleans wounds without stinging.
The first aid kit initially was released several years ago. In the new version Miracle Clay, which relieves pain from insect bites, is premixed and comes in a tube. Other ingredients also have been repackaged for easier use during vacations with dogs, Novak said.
Labels and instructions have been redesigned and rewritten to incorporate answers to customer questions, and the container is now a smaller, soft-sided zippered bag.
Dynamite also now offers a program under which it will ship 12.5-pound boxes of Ultimate Dog Food, the raw dog food that needs no refrigeration, at regular intervals. This means that fresh food is always available, whether it is shipped to a home or to a vacation destination.
No matter how eager your dog is to jump in the car, Novak cautioned, summer vacation travel can be as stressful for dogs as for humans. Some simple natural dog remedies can make life easier.
Why the stress? The same reason that travel can be stressful to humans, even when it’s for pleasure. There are hours of limited exercise while confined in a car or on an airplane. Pets often are confined to crates. There are changes in diet and routine. All take their toll on energy levels and mental and physical health.
Dogs, more so than humans, may stop eating under stress. Anxiety produces the “fight or flight” reaction in dogs, and their digestive systems often shut down as their bodies anticipate the need to either fight back or run away. When dogs are confined, they do not get the chance to burn off the adrenaline and bring their bodies back into balance by running around, thus creating a vicious cycle.
“A good dog probiotic supports natural gut bacteria and helps keep a dog’s digestive system working properly. A daily dose of a dog probiotic is recommended at all times, and it is even more important during travel,” Novak said. Dynamite makes Dyna-Pro dog probiotic, as well as Showdown, a combination of nutrients to support overall health.
Other products useful for summer vacations with dogs also are available from Dynamite, which makes natural dog food and nutritional supplements for canines and most other members of the animal kingdom.
Dogs, too, can suffer from summer sun. An application of Dyna Shield, a naturally formulated and chemical-free spray will provide sun protection, while conditioning the coat and soothing insect bites.
Dogs that exercise heavily need an electrolyte boost just as humans do. Dyna-Spark will help restore the electrolyte balance in dogs that have been exercising on hot, summer days. The supplement is rich in B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, iron and electrolytes and contains no stimulants or additives. It also supports health in dogs suffering anxiety, sickness or injury.
Hiscorbadyne is a a nutrient that blends flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, and related compounds. It helps with oxidative stress on cells. It has been linked to many other health benefits, including capillary support, increased circulation, and support for animals with allergies or weakened immune systems.
Relax, as the name implies, is a homeopathic and flower essence blend that helps dogs relax if they are fearful of new situations during travel. It is especially useful during Fourth of July fireworks. Spray it into the dog’s mouth. It is entirely drug-free.
Tranquil is an all-natural herbal/homeopathic formula that works like a tranquilizer to create a feeling of calmness.
Finally, if your car starts to smell like your dog, pull out Dynamite’s All-Natural Deodorizer. Instead of using chemicals to mask odors, this deodorizer disintegrates the odor molecules. It contains no toxic chemicals or gases or environmental pollutants.
A family-owned business that has specialized in animal nutrition for four generations, Dynamite Specialty Products makes products for virtually every member of the animal kingdom. It has long developed food and nutritional supplements for prize-winning racehorses and show dogs across the country. Its specialists in dog nutrition and animal nutrition can recommend exactly what vitamins, minerals and other supplements best support dogs with arthritis, horses with laminitis, cats whose owners make their own food, and cows with digestive issues. Dynamite has worked with veterinarians and university researchers to produce specialty foods to correct nutritional deficiencies in animals ranging from Canadian muskoxen to peregrine falcons to zoo exotics.
Dynamite uses only natural ingredients, made in the United States for better quality control. Throughout its history of making natural dog food, it has always looked at alternatives to animal by-products, antibiotics, chemical preservatives, fumigants, artificial coloring and other additives that have later caused health problems. Its manufacturing processes are so stringently controlled that Dynamite has a separate mill to produce feed for herbivores, such as horses and poultry that are especially sensitive to contamination from meat needed by other species such as dogs and cats. Dynamite has manufacturing facilities in Idaho and Iowa.
