It’s a Sunday night and the vet’s office is closed. Suddenly, your dog or cat develops a raging case of garbage gut! What do you do?

Introducing Coalescence. Patented and proven to help pets with diarrhea.

Diarrhea in companion animals is a common problem but with several causes which are impossible to correctly diagnose. Pet owners want to act fast, but there are almost no good diarrhea treatments on the market, and a trip to the vet’s office can become a costly exercise.

Coalescence is an all natural solution that works fast. It is a patented, GRAS-approved product that adsorbs toxins regardless of the pathogen and helps pets with diarrhea and digestive discomfort in as little as 24-48 hrs.

Coalescence is effective regardless of the cause of infection of diarrhea because it absorbs the toxins produced by pathogens – bacterial, viral or environmental. It contains a patented calcium aluminosilicate ingredient that has been shown to adsorb toxins due to the infectious organisms that may cause diarrhea. In fact, just a single tube has the adsorption surface area of 7 football fields. Use of our Coalescence can avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics and help pets recover naturally.

Coalescence™ also adsorbs and promotes the excretion of toxins within the gastrointestinal tract. It contains an adsorbent to coat the gastrointestinal membranes promoting a firm stool – and it doesn’t cause embarrassing or smelly gas!

Coalescence is safe for use in puppies, kittens, adult and older pets and has a convenient applicator for veterinarians and pet owners.

If you’re like most dog and cat owners, you fear the day your veterinarian says your pet has cancer. In fact, according to a massive study by the Morris Animal Foundation, cancer was the leading disease-related cause of death in dogs and cats by a significant margin, and among the top concerns of pet owners (#1 for dog owners, #3 for cat owners).

We are working on a new cancer treatment that can be given by your local vet at a fraction of the cost of chemotherapy, surgery or other treatments. We know it’s important to you, so it’s important to us.

If you’re a veterinarian, please contact us to find out how you can help and we can help your patients.

What is the best food for my dog?

This is a tough question which comes down to 4 key actions:

  1. Prioritize nutritional needs.
    We all can agree that choosing the right food for life can be one of the biggest factors in longevity and quality of life. We also have to realize that just like human food, the best-tasting food is often not the most nutritious. Usually foods with “tasty bits” are sold to satisfy the human’s emotional needs more than the dog’s nutritional needs and are often the cause of obesity, one of the most common killers for dogs.
  2. Seek the advice of a professional.
    Terms like “all-natural”, according to AAFCO is often anyone’s guess. Choosing the best food takes some research on your own or requires finding someone knowledgeable who you really trust to advise what is right for your individual dog. Please keep in mind, this is not the salesman at the pet store who has only been informed by representatives from the food companies, and it shouldn’t be just some website that made sense to you. Speak with your veterinarian or a trained nutritional consultant at your veterinarian’s office who can help you make this important decision for your dog
  3. Carefully choose commercial dog food.
    Since most of us don’t have time to look for and properly prepare organic chicken, it is more sensible to find a high-quality commercial dog food that is preserved with vitamin E or other natural preservatives. These foods are formulated by trained nutritionist to be the best and help your dog live the longest, healthiest life possible; something that most of us are not trained to do.
  4. Take into consideration any food allergy.
    Food allergy is a very common component of itchy skin in dogs. Chicken, beef, lamb, corn, soy, wheat, egg, and dairy products are have the potential to induce these allergies so if you have concerns of an allergy, see your veterinarian.  Most pet food companies have specialty foods omitting allergy inducing ingredients and are usually sold as prescription foods but are not significantly more expensive than over-the-counter foods of equivalent quality.

In the end, with the wealth of foods that are available to help many different conditions, it’s up to you and your knowledge about your circumstances to choose the right food.  Our recommendation is to gather as much information as possible and be open to changing diets if needed.

What is the BARF diet and should I be doing this for my pet?

BARF stands for “biologically available raw food”; the idea of this approach is that raw food is closer to what a dog would eat in the wild. Unfortunately, dogs in the wild do not live very long, which, is a bit of a flaw in the diet’s logic.  From research as it stands now, there is no real evidence that there are any health benefits to eating raw meat.  There are so many high quality manufactured and tested pet foods, we don’t recommend it for a number of reasons.

Even proponents of the diet will tell you that there are risks if you don’t do it exactly right. Besides bacteria concerns, people who are considering feeding a raw foods diet should think about the physical safety of their pets. Many bones, especially from chickens, can splinter as the pet chews on them. Many pets have gotten bones lodged in their throats or have suffered damage to their esophagus by swallowing broken pieces. In addition, finding organic food sources can be difficult and costly and you must ensure balance the food with vegetables and other sources of micronutrients to meet all of your dog’s nutritional needs. 

How Can I Curb My Cat's Aggression Towards Other People?

When guests come to your home, you want them to feel comfortable and for your cat behave. If your cat tends to act out around other people, there may be a specific reason, and you can learn how to help him overcome this behavior. Here are 3 things to investigate if this describes your cat:

  1. Lack of Socialization:
    Most likely they were not socialized with enough human interaction when they were kittens, thus are fearful of those who are not their owner, or they may have previously had a bad experience with a stranger who frightened them or played too rough. If this is the case, slowly introduce new people, one at a time in a caring and loving manner.  It will take awhile, but over time, you cat will begin to see that friends aren’t always a bad thing.
  2. Is there a hidden injury?
    If your cat is acting hostile towards guests in your home, he could be trying to communicate that something is wrong. If the aggression is ongoing, bring him in for a check-up with your vet so that any medical issues can be ruled out.
  3. Anti-Stranger
    If it turns out your cat is just anti-stranger, try asking guests to stay away from your cat when they first arrive. This will allow him time to gradually warm up and come over when he is ready. Give your guests one of your cat’s favorite toys or treats to give to him once he does approach, or to leave near the place he is hiding, will help your cat make the connection that this stranger equals good things.

If none of these curb the behavior, move to a more disciplinarian approach of firmly telling your cat ‘no,’ then moving to the water bottle, giving him a quick squirt (never in the face) to deter him.  After a few squirts, he should get the message and stop as soon as he sees the bottle.
