Natural First Aid Kit for Pets
Recommendations to Have on Hand for Healthy Pets
There are a few supplements that are good to keep on hand at all times.
This is because they address very important factors in a pet’s healthcare and have proven invaluable time after time,
in first aid situations where quick resolution is needed.

to replace or circumvent any needed veterinarian care. Know what you can handle and what needs the input of a professional
Activated Charcoal: I discovered Activated Charcoal when someone recommended it to help with the healing of my miracle kitty Lazarus too.
I was amazed to read that Activated Charcoal can absorb up to ten times it’s weight in poison. It would seem to me
this would be a must for any first aid kit for animals, or humans either for that matter. Dogs and cats are always
getting into things they shouldn’t and dogs, in particular, will eat just about anything so I keep Activate Charcoal

Nature’s Way Activated Charcoal (from Indian Hardwood) is one of the finest natural adsorbent agents known. Each particle contains many small chambers and cavities that bind-up unwanted material or gas. Activated Charcoal is commonly used to adsorb digestive gas and toxins including poisons. Activated Charcoal is listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia. Poison Control Center recommends this for use in poisoning.

I’ve ever suggested Willard Water to has loved it, without exception, and I’ve suggested it to quite a few. My whole
family uses it. Animals response very, very well to Willard Water and, in particular, it seems to calm aggressive and
angry animals so I find that it is effective whenever an animal is stressed by a vet visit, or any other trauma.
Remedy : If you have a longhaired cat in the house, I don’t have to tell you about hairballs. What a mess. And
it can’t be pleasant for the cat either. I was thrilled when a company I greatly respect for their “people” products
came out with a new line for our animals friends. PetAlive FurBall Dr. has been specifically formulated for cats
