How To Give Your Pet A Pill--New Tips!


For some people, giving their pet a pill is an easy task.
They are able to mix their pet’s supplement or medicine
in food and the pet gobbles it right down. This is the
exception NOT the rule. In most instances, giving
pets supplements or medication does require some effort.


Step 1--Prepare yourself mentally that you will need to take control of the situation and that this is going to require some extra effort. Consider the positive benefits of administering the pill (e.g. your pet's health may improve!). Many people struggle with the issue that if their pet doesn’t want to take something, then they don’t want to upset them. When you consider that your pet's health may deteriorate without the pill, it is important that you as the caretaker take charge. Pets sense your hesitation and if you are thinking “Gee, I don’t know why I am giving this to Buster”—then you won’t administer the pill with the same tenacity as if you really thought it would help Buster feel better. Thus, step #1 in administering pills is to understand why you are using the supplement or medicine and then you will be more comfortable knowing that you are helping your pet.

Other tips you may find helpful:

1) If the product is a vitamin supplement (this does not apply to medications from your veterinarian!), start with a tiny amount. Give your pet time to get used to the new smell or texture. Try opening a capsule and sprinkling just a dash into the food. Hide the tiny amount underneath a tasty treat in your pet's bowl. Over time, your pet will get used to it in the food. Many pet owners make the mistake of putting the full amount in the first time and then erroneously conclude their pet will not accept it. Administering supplements is an ART and requires patience.

2) Try to convince your pet “it’s not a pill, it’s a treat”. You can hide the pill in a special food or treat that you ONLY use at pill time. Try some premium canned pet food, mashed potatoes, baby food, canned pumpkin or a Pill Pocket. Do NOT use peanut butter, cookie dough or full fat cream cheese or other cheese. Many pets are allergic to the ingredients in all of these and they are too high in fat.

3) Be sure when you hide the pill that the food is “bite-size”. You may need to cut the pill. When hiding the pill, be careful not to use too much food—you may find that ½ a Pill Pocket, for example, is sufficient. If you give too much food, then your pet will start to chew the treat and the pill will be spit out. Use the bare minimum of covering---just enough for a quick gulp!

4) Try mixing the powder from the pill with a liquid such as chicken broth or clam juice. Squirt the broth into your pet's mouth. Most pills can be crushed or opened, mixed with water or broth and given in a syringe. This technique works very well, especially with cats. Open the capsule of the supplement or medication, or crush the pill, mix with water, broth or tuna water and syringe into your pet’s mouth. Syringes can be purchased at any drug store or at your veterinarian’s office.

5) It might be better to give the pill at a separate time away from the pet's regular feeding schedule using a treat. Otherwise, if the pet doesn't like the taste, they might become picky with regular meals.

6) Try putting a dab of the liquid mixture on your pet's paw or on your fingers and see if your pet will lick it off. Many times pets might be reluctant to eat the medicine when it is on their food but will lick it off their fur or your fingertips. 7) If all else fails and your pet consistently spits out the pill, then you will need to open your pet’s mouth, place the pill quickly into the back of the mouth, close the mouth and then gently massage the throat to ensure the pill is swallowed (while holding the jaws shut). This is a lot easier than it sounds and sometimes may be your only option. Your veterinarian’s office can show you how. Often, when pets realize that they have two choices: have the pill placed in the back of their mouth or take the treat, they suddenly start to cooperate. Compliance with pills in the end, comes down to your ability to take control of your pet and your belief in the benefits of the medication or supplement. If you don’t feel good about giving the product, then after a few days, you may find you haven’t complied with your doctor or pet health practitioner’s instructions. Understanding the benefits of what you are using will help keep you going as in many cases, giving an uncooperative pet pills does take time and can be stressful.

Labrador Retriever With Cancer Doing Well With Holistic Care

"Happy New Year! Thank you for keeping our Labrador Stanley well. He just celebrated his 9th Birthday! After his cancer diagnosis in early September, we all wondered if he would be here for Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then his birthday. He has not seen his general vet or specialist since his diagnosis. We attribute his wellness to your products! YOU have BLESSED us immensely! Each time we receive an order from you, somehow Stanley knows "his ladies from California have sent him a package." Our heartfelt gratitude to all of you!"

Golden Retriever Scooting, Chewing on Rear End

Q: My 2 year old Golden Retriever scoots on her rear end. She is itching and chewing on her butt all the time. I brought her to the veterinarian and they said her anal glands are fine. She is always trying to lick herself and I have to use an ecollar to prevent her from constantly licking. I have tried topical sprays and they don't help. I feed her an organic dry dog food. Can you help?

A: There are a variety of reasons why your golden retriever might scoot and chew on her rear end. First, you need to be sure you have eliminated the possibility of fleas and parasites (and anal gland impaction). Once your veterinarian has ruled that out, then the scooting is generally either due to yeast or allergies or both. In human health, we often hear of jock itch or vaginal yeast infections. This is due to an overgrowth of candida yeast. Yeast can cause a variety of symptoms including gas, poor digestion, ear infections and ITCHINESS! The same is true of our pets although this tends to manifest itself in the rear-end, ears and groin.
In order to stop your Golden Retriever's itching and scooting on the outside, you need to treat the yeast and intestinal disbiosis on the inside.

First, put your golden retriever on a quality Probiotic. We highly recommend Power Probiotic because it is third party tested and proven to work. Most people don't realize that when you purchase supplements--many times, what the manufacturer indicates on the label may not be what actually is delivered. This is especially true of Probiotics. It is really important to use a multi-strain formula that guarantees potency at the time you open the bottle. The Power Probiotic will help immediately to reduce your Golden retriever's itching and scooting by helping to rebalance the intestinal flora. The Power Probiotic contains the good bacteria to help your dog fight off the yeast.

Next, you need to use a reliable antifungal for your golden retriever. The best program for this is the Myco-zyme yeast package. This consists of Myco-zyme to control the yeast + Probiotic + Notatum anti-inflammatory + Amazing Omegas which helps to restore a lustrous coat, rebalance the flora and also reduces inflammation. Yeast can make a pet very itchy and perpetually put a strain on their immune system. You need to use an antifungal product to help kill off the yeast while the other products rebalance the intestinal flora so it doesn't come back. Generally one round of the antifungal treatment is all that is needed provided you change your dog's diet to ensure it is not promoting yeast overgrowth.

Give your golden retriever plenty of green vegetables such as green beans as yeast thrive in an acidic environment. The vegetables provide fiber, vitamins and minerals which promote a healthy intestinal tract. Try to switch to a canned, homemade or raw frozen diet. Dry dog foods, even organic foods can promote yeast overgrowth since many contain grains.

Dog Arthritis Supplements Help Dog Limping, Dog Stiffness and Canine Arthritis


Save 15% on Our Pet Arthritis Package
$12.50 SAVINGS through Monday January 24th
Sale Price: $67.95

Regular Retail Price For All Three Products: $80.50

The Pet Arthritis Package contains 3 formulas: Amazing Omegas fish oil, Amazing Arthrosoothe and Curcumin Complex For Pets. This is a basic kit that will provide excellent support for dog joint pain, canine arthritis and dog stiffness. This kit really works!!! Please see the many testimonials about how quickly these three products can help dog stiffness, dog dog limping and canine arthritis. Many people think that it is just "old age" in their dogs. Before, you resort to just putting your dog on pain medications......please give them the joint support they really need.

The following signs that your dog needs joint support:

• Difficulty or hesitation to sit down or get up
• Difficulty jumping up or reluctance to climb stairs
• Lameness in one or more limb
• Stiffness in the morning that improves as the day progresses
• Subtle signs that the dog may not want to put weight on the limb
• Sensitivity when touched in certain areas

We always recommend having your veterinarian examine your dog to be sure that other health conditions are ruled out. Sometimes what may look like arthritis or old age, could be something more serious. When you bring your dog for an office visit, your veterinarian will want to do a comprehensive examination and assess your pet’s neurological responses, joint mobility, areas of pain and sensitivity. Your veterinarian may manipulate the limbs to assess your dog’s response and observe the extent to which your pet is able to put weight on the affected limb. Generally an XRAY is taken and additional testing (ultrasound, bloodwork) may be required. It is important that a veterinarian check for all of the pet’s symptoms as there may a variety of conditions contributing to your pet’s discomfort.

The following conditions are just a few of the many causes of joint or muscle pain and lameness:
• Arthritis
• Injury
• Genetic conditions (e.g. hip dysplasia, osteochondritis)
• Immune mediated (e.g. cancer)
• Infection
• Ligament tear (especially in the knee)
• Deferred pain from an organ (e.g. kidneys)

As you can see, there may be a lot more than just “old age” contributing to your dog’s pain and it is important to understand the causes so that proper treatment can be determined. Also, many young dogs may show signs of limping or discomfort which could be due to any of the above factors—in other words, a dog does not have to be “old” to suffer from joint or muscle pain. Depending upon the test results, your veterinarian will advise you on the best course of action. Sometimes surgical repair is the best option. But getting your dog started on canine arthritis & joint supplements will help give your dog basic support and certainly won't interfere with other medications. It is a good line of defense to start with and many times, can bring about miraculous improvement!

For older pets, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Rimadyl, Metacam or Previcox will help the pet feel more comfortable and increase mobility. These medications should be used judiciously however, as over time, they may impact liver function. These medications can be combined with the Pet Arthritis Package and by using the Pet Arthritis Package, it should lessen the need to use the medications as frequently.

Our Dog Joint Support Supplements Really Work!


Our Dog Joint Support Supplements Really Work!

"Tootsie was a stray who came into our local shelter. I brought her home to foster her for Internet MinPin Service a year ago. She was somewhere around 10 years old at the time. She apparently had injuries to her back legs. There was little muscle tone and she could barely walk, often holding one leg up as she tried. I started her on a glucosamine/chondroitin preparation but saw little progress. Three months later someone told be about Askariel products and I purchased the Amazing ArthroSoothe and started her on that. She made amazing progress. Within a month she was able to use the leg that previously she had not walked on. A couple months later she was able to go at a fast walk and a few more months and she could trot. Six months after starting the Amazing ArthroSoothe she was able to actually run. Today you would never know that her back legs had been so bad. She has good muscle tone, runs, uses steps, and never has any more discomfort." Jean Ensor

Amazing Omegas—Choosing the Right Fish Oil For Your Pet Can Make All the Difference


"Tango"


Amazing Omegas—Choosing the Right Fish Oil For Your Pet Can Make All the Difference

“I had tried several other brands of fish oil for my 3 year old Yorkie, Tango. His coat continued to look dry while using the other brands. I started using Amazing Omegas and seriously within a few DAYS noticed a new sheen and luster on his coat. I believe that the difference is the uncompromising quality of this product. The first time I opened the bottle, I immediately noticed the fresh smell of this oil. Tango’s groomer, who is an expert on canine coats, comments regularly about the health and beauty of his coat. We love this product and would highly recommend it.”

Dog Arthritis--Dog Limping, Dog Stiffness--Joint Support Supplements Can Help!


If your dog is stiff, limping or slowing down, it is easy to feel helpless and sad. We don't want our dogs to be in pain. Conventional veterinary care will often focus on using pain and anti-inflammatory medications such as Metacam, Deramaxx, Rimadyl and Tramadol. While these medications can certainly provide short-term relief, there is so much more you can do to rebuild your dog's health and get them moving again.

Most people just don't realize how much and how quickly dog joint suppport supplements can help keep a dog young and healthy-acting---even old dogs can pick up the pace, jump on the bed and be lively again.


The first step is to get your dog's condition diagnosed by a veterinarian. Your dog may be slowing down, limping, having difficulty getting up and down, stiff in the mornings or when it is cold, or just walking and moving slower. Be sure your veterinarian rules out any other potential causes such as cancer. Then, get started on your dog's personal wellness and joint support campaign and watch how quickly you can get your dog moving again!


Step 1: Clean up your dog's diet. Don't give your dog acid-forming foods that contain grains, preservatives or chemicals. Most commercial diets are full of grains. Consider going to a boutique pet food store (rather than the big chains) and look into some of the grain-free options such as Natures Variety http://www.naturesvariety.com  Add some green beans or chopped broccoli to your dog's diet to add fresh enzymes and valuable vitamins and minerals.


Step 2: Give your dog a premium fish oil. Don't skimp on quality or you will see it in the results. Many fish oils contain contaminants and most pet fish oils are highly watered-down. Salmon oil is ok because pets like the taste but if you really want to get your dog moving and reduce inflammation--you need to add some powerful, purified fish omegas to your pet's regimen. We LOVE Amazing Omegas because a little bit goes a LONG way. Amazing Omegas is purified of chemicals, PCBs and toxins and contains a combination of anchovy and sardine oil. So many clients report the incredible difference they see when using Amazing Omegas vs other oils. It really works!


Step 3: Add natural canine joint support supplements to your dog's regimen. Medications (eg NSAIDs---non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications) for dogs can be hard on their liver and kidneys. Use these medications judiciously and try to rebuild and repair your dog's joints and ligaments. NSAIDs are pain relievers--they do not help improve your dog's joint support. That is what supplements do. Use a combination joint support formula that contains more than just glucosamine---should contain herbs such as boswelia and turmeric, as well as MSM and hyaluronic acid. We have terrific results using Amazing Arthrosoothe, especially when it is used with the complete Pet Arthritis Package.
Step 4: Look into getting acupuncture or chiropractic for your dog. Many practitioners offer these services and it can really help.
By following these simple steps, you can see near-miraculous results in just a few weeks. Don't wait until your dog is hardly walking to get started. Be proactive and take steps now to keep your doing moving and healthy.

Cat With Renal Failure (CRF) Improves with Kidney Health


My cat, Petals, was diagnosed with renal failure from her blood work. And, indeed, she was urinating frequently. After I had her teeth cleaned under general anesthesia, she seemed worse. By worse, I mean, she was urinating lots more and thereby drinking more water to quench her thirst. Even though I fed her raw food for cats with good results, Petals craved her favorite treat and I gave it to her not knowing that it contained high crude protein. She began vomiting her meals and grew weak and listless. I thought she was going to die.

For two days she could hardly walk while I kept her hydrated with a eye dropper. I began making funeral plans in my mind--basically wondering at what point should I take her to my vet to put her under. Then my order of Kidney Health from Ask Ariel arrived. I had decided to order it as a last ditch effort, wondering if its power to help kidneys flush out toxins would help my cuddly pet. And help it did! It was like night and day.

Within hours she was eating and not coughing up her wet food. Better yet, she was drinking water on her own and getting stronger. Today she does not urinate excessively. She acts like a healthy cat with a great appetite! Because she is18 years old, I have learned to buy all foods and treats with low protein; and I give her Kidney Health daily. I was so concerned that Petals would not ingest foods mixed with Kidney Health (she's fussy that way). I found that she eats with the same amount of gusto, doesn't hesitate, when her meals contain the Kidney Health powder! I'm so pleased.I believe I'll have my little companion around for an even longer time! Thank you, Ariel! Bless you! Alice

Canine Kidney Disease, Canine Heart Problems Improved

"I would like to thank Susan Davis for all of her knowledge and expertise in nutrition and diet. My Archie and Noonie would not be here today if I hadn't found her! Through her instruction, we have corrected the heart problem Archie had and the kidney problem Noonie had. My vet is amazed and to me, it is no less than a miracle! Susan has taught me how to keep them healthy and happy in their "golden years"

I also want to thank her staff at Ask Ariel Your Pet Nutritionist. They have never failed to get my supplements here on time and exactly as I ordered them. And I must say, Archie looks forward to seeing me open the packages, because he knows there will be a surprise waiting inside for him. He loves the little toys you send and constantly carries them around."

Diet for 6 year old Yorkie




Q: Thankfully, I stumbled onto your blog ;)

Can you please tell me what things I can make for my 6 year old yorkie. I'm not sure what I should or shouldn't be feeding her.

A: This is a terrific question! We work with many, many yorkies and there is no "one" perfect diet that is right for all of them. The reason is that yorkies can have many sensitivities and it is very important to monitor their health. Some yorkies can have a predisposition to liver problems, pancreatitis, IBD and other digestive conditions. So.....without knowing your yorkie's medical history, it would be very difficult to give you specific suggestions.

As a first step however, I would highly recommend getting laboratory tests done on your yorkie including a blood panel and urine analysis. Many times, yorkies, with their sweet nature, may appear playful and fine but in reality, could be having some health concerns. A lot of the time, pet owners may confuse picky eating, especially with yorkies as a more "humanized" cuteness but the reality is--could be an indicator of an underlying stomach acid problem. Since this is quite common, I would recommend using a high quality Probiotic, such as our Power Probiotic to help your Yorkie with overall digestion and good health. This will help prevent digestive problems, especially as she gets older.

If you have already had your yorkie's health completely evaluated, then use some general principles to select the right food and treats for your dog. Do not give Yorkies high-fat foods ever, e.g. peanut butter, cream cheese, cheese, etc--these can be very hard on their digestive system. Use lean meats and plenty of vegetables. Try to use a hypoallergenic, balanced diet. Remember also that what might seem like a small portion, could be a lot for a small adorable Yorkie! If you would like a more detailed, custom diet specifically developed for your yorkie, please know that Susan Davis, our nutritionist, would be happy to help and offer telephone consultations.

German Shepherd is balding, itchy and has skin problems

Q: My grandmother's 1 year old german shepherd is balding. She is very itchy too. My grandmother has changed her food and treats and is giving her fish oil tablets. She has had a male german shepherd who had to be put down before because he went completely bald and had some sort of skin disease that made him really itchy. I don't want this dog to go to. She's just a baby! Please help!

A: So sorry to hear that your Grandmother's German Shepherd is suffering so much with itching, scratching and skin problems. First and foremost, it is very important to take her dog to the veterinarian. Hair loss can be a sign of mange, flea dermatitis or other types of parasites. Since her other dog had a similar issue, it is quite possible there is a pattern either in terms of food she is feeding or exposure. Be sure the home has been treated for fleas and parasites especially.

If the German Shepherd has already had a thorough examination by a veterinarin, take a look at the treats and food she is giving. A lot of times, people like to give their pets not only their dog food, but pieces of their own food all day long. So....for example, the veterinarian may have given your family a hypoallergenic diet but if family members are giving the dog highly allergic table scraps such as chicken, bread and peanut butter---there is the source of your problem. It takes very little--sometimes just a 1/2 teaspoon to trigger an allergic reaction to a food.

Finally, we do offer some supplements that will greatly help. For starters, try the Pet Allergy and Skin Package.The Pet Allergy and Skin Package includes three effective products that are proven to help stop scratching and itching. These include Amazing Omegas, Proaller and Notatum. They work synergistically to control inflammation and reduce allergic response. You might also want to consider scheduling a telephone consultation along with your Grandmother so that we can discuss in depth the foods and treats she might be giving the dog. Please don't worry----as long as you start making some of these suggested changes, her dog will get better.

Shi Tzu with Chronic Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)











Q: I have a 4 year old Shih Tzu who has a lot of urinary problems. She has also been tested for food and inhalent allergies and is currently being given antigen shots to resolve the inhalent allergies. My biggest concerns are her urinary problems. She has regular urinary tract infections, she had bladder stone surgery in September and has constant pH problems. She is currently taking 800 mg of Uroeze a day to try to lower her pH and is tested every few months for urinary tract infections. Her pH is still too high and I'm starting to wonder if her Vet knows what to do to resolve this. She is also taking a thyroid pill and a pill that forces her to go pee more. Her pH is currently around 7.5 and she tested positive for struvite crystals on her last urinary test. I don't want her to get bladder stones again so I'm hoping you can help. Thank you in advance! Kristine

A: So sorry that your Shi Tzu has been so uncomfortable. There is a lot that can be done to help address the frequent urinary tract infections naturally. Most cats and dogs that get frequent urinary infections (UTIs) develop a great deal of inflammation. This can make it very difficult for the pet to get better. Pet owners (and people) will get into a cycle of using antibiotics only to find the infection returns soon after finishing the last pill. In order to address the problem of chronic urinary infections, it is important to look at the type of factors that might be contributing to the bladder inflammation. A pet could have stones, immune weakness and quite frequently (but most overlooked) food allergies. It is very typical to see dogs and cats have chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) also have gastrointestinal issues such as loose stool, skin problems----all due to food allergies. So....the first step in treating your Shi Tzu or any pet with chronic UTIs is to get them off the "offending" foods that are contributing to the inflammation.

It is essential to use Pet UTI Prevention Package for Urinary Tract Infections to help your pet feel better.

There can be a misperception that somehow "food allergies" are separate from inhaled allergies---when in actuality--they are all rooted in the same problem. Allergies are cumulative and the more exposure there is to offending foods and allergens, the more likely the pet's immune system will be compromised. Quite often people and pets with "inhaled" allergies have yeast overgrowth as well as food allergies that are daily causing inflammation and "leaky" gut syndrome. To help your Shi Tzu, you need to work with a veterinary professional to develop an appropriate anti-fungal, hypoallergenic diet that will reduce her overall inflammation.

In addition, some supplements will greatly help. Pet UTI Prevention Package for Urinary Tract Infections which includes Notatum (excellent natural anti-inflammatory), Power Probiotic, Pet UTI Prevention Formula and Renelix would be a great way to help boost your Shi Tzu's immune system to try to ward off the chronic urinary tract infections. Renelix is especially helpful for dogs that get bladder stones and crystals in their urine. I understand that this all may seem overwhelming especially trying to "do it all yourself". Please know that Dr. Gordon and I offer telephone consultations, have had terrific success helping pet owners resolve chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) and would be happy to assist you. Just know though that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and your Shi Tzu will get better---it is just a matter of getting her on the right diet and supplement protocol.
