I just wanted to let you know that your product is wonderful.

I always tell my veterinarians about it and hope that they will incorporate it into their businesses.  It’s such a nice feeling to take extra care with your pet,  and it’s an easy thing to do between routine veterinary visits.

Pet kidney health….protecting your dog and cat’s health

An important reason to feed your dog or cat the best quality food you can is to help the kidneys with their job of filtering toxins from your pet’s body through the urinary tract system.  As your animal ages, the kidneys have to work harder to filter toxins, so it is much easier on their system to have less toxins to filter.

Purifying their diet ~  food and water and treats ~puts less stress on your animal’s kidneys.

Bacteria and dog and cat kidney and urinary tract infections

One simple thing I just read about to help prevent your dog and cat from developing urinary, bladder, or kidney infections is to be vigilant about washing out the water dish with hot/soapy water and changing the water atleast once a day.

Bacteria can grow quickly in the water and not just in hot weather.

The article mentioned some nice dishes that are made from recycled plastic. However, I believe stainless steel dishes are the best. Years ago, my cat Oliver developed what the vet called “feline acne”….little bumps on his chin. I was told that is something that is more common when the animal eats or drinks from plastic dishes.

And seamless dishes are the best, too, as bacteria cannot accumulate in any creases.
