Roxi was my second large breed dog. She was a rescue from a breeder. I say “a breeder” because she almost died the first week we had her. Like all of our dogs, Roxi had been followed by a vet on a regular basis. I am writing about her because she died from taking Human medication for arthritis in her joints. She was only 7 when she developed a sudden GI bleed. Immediately she was taken to animerge but surgery couldn’t help her, She continued to bleed and had to be mercifully euthanized, I vowed that day that I would never treat another one of my loves with human medication if i could help it. Enter my Bella. Since the age of 4 months she has been taking holistic tinctures for all her medical issues. She was traumatized by the airplane ride to me. My vet totally believes in holistic treatments. She was put on a tincture to calm her anxiety. She naturally grew out of the anxiety. Then she started to have digestive issues. Bella’s vet placed her on a tincture of herbs that worked like a charm. She has no other issues and is a happy AND HEALTHY 4 yr. old. While i realize that there are times that traditional human meds may be the answer-such as antibiotics, however, there are many herbs that can be utilized without harm or death to your dog. Ask your vet about Holistic tinctures. If you need more information feel free to contact me via my email address. HOLISTIC IS THE WAY TO GO!
