Almond Flour For Baking

Wanted to pass on a nutrition tip that is great for anyone who likes to bake. This is especially nice if you eat gluten-free. Try using some almond flour in place of regular flour in your baking. Today I baked some gluten-free, sugar-free cookies and they were tasty. Almond flour is just ground up almonds but you can make cookies out of it or replace some of your baking mixture with it. Has a delicious RICH flavor. I also use coconut oil in place of some butter and combined with the almond flour is very delicious. Almond flour has many benefits. It is higher in protein than regular flour and MUCH lower in carbohydrates. When we eat high carb foods, we have a tendency to crave more and more as our insulin goes up. Ever find after you eat one brownie that you have to eat 3 more--that is why!!! So by using some almond flour in your baking, you can reduce your overall carbohydrate intake and the insulin surge that follows eating high carbohydrate foods (especially if you use lower glycemic sweeteners rather than sugar for the baked item).

Cat Immune Supplement Helps Chronic Upper Respiratory Infections (URIs)




SyImmune Cream Topical Immune Support Especially For Cats and Small Dogs

If your cat has chronic upper respiratory infections (URIs), this is a great product to try.  It is easy to use---simply apply to your cat's ear tip or neck.  It is especially helpful when the infections are due to feline viruses such as feline herpes or feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).  When a cat has a chronic virus, it can be very discouraging and owners may feel there is nothing they can do but let nature take its course.  This is not the case.  You can give your kitty a hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory, grain-free diet and use supplements to help boost their immune function.  If you are able to give your cat supplements and your cat has chronic infections such as upper respiratory infections, then we encourage you to use this product along with Notatum, Olive Leaf Extract and Power Probiotic


"We used SyImmune on our kitty Oliver along with the Immune Harmony, Argentyn drops and Power Probiotic. Oliver has chronic URIs due to feline herpes. I cannot believe how much this regimen helped him. Thank you Ask Ariel"

Exercise---It's Great For You and Great For Your Pet

Exercising may be one of the best ways for you and your pet to feel better!  When our pets don't feel well, we have a natural inclination to focus on medication, food and supplements but we forget how important exercise is for your pet's general well being.  Exercise can help with mobility, depression and circulation.  For example, I often talk to clients whose dogs have arthritis and because their dog is "slowing down", they have stopped walking them.  That is the worst thing you can do.  Exercise improves blood flow, circulation throughout your body and improves your immune function.  For example, pet owners with tiny pets may often treat them like "pocket pets" and carry them around with them everywhere they go.   One of the most common ailments of these "pocket dogs" is that they are constipated, develop knee problems and other health conditions as a result of lack of exercise.  They may go everywhere but being carried is not the same as walking on their own.

Walking and exercising is good for you too.  Sometimes when you are feeling down, the very best thing to do is to take a walk and "clear your head".   Walking can increase blood flow to the brain and overall, just get your body feeling better overall..  Being sedentary decreases blood flow to all parts of your body which further weakens you.  It is the same for your pets.  If you have a diabetic pet, for example, try to find ways to keep them moving.  Exercising can lower blood sugar levels and help reduce the amount of medication your pet needs.  Cats with diabetes can benefit from playing with a laser toy or by putting food bowls at higher places so they are challenged to move around.

No matter what stage of life, exercise is good for you and your pets.  So....with the nice weather here, please make an effort to help your self and your pets by exercising every day and making it a priority!

Pet Odors

Summertime can bring hot weather, humidity, bugs and allergies-- all of which can make pets itchy and sometimes even smelly. While pets need occassional baths to clean up odors, for the most part, pets should feel and smell nice. Peculiar dog odors are generally a sign that something is “off” and it is important for you to find out the source of the odor. Cat or dog odors are not just cosmetic--they are warning signs alerting you of a potential problem. Here are just a few odors to watch out for:

Smelly Skin and Coat—Allergies—both environmental and digestive, contribute to skin problems. Both yeast infections and bacterial infections can cause an odor especially when it is hot and muggy. Pet owners often get discouraged because their pet will have an odor even after giving them a bath. It is a misnomer to conclude “my pet just smells” or that it is somehow related to your pet’s breed. The odor is a sign of imbalance and possibly infection.

Many times pets have an odor from allergies (even an allergic rash from fleas!) which can also leave a white powdery or greasy film on your hand when you touch your pet. Common food allergens include grains such as wheat, oats, gluten and corn. Too many carbohydrates such as rice and potatoes, when given to a young pet, can contribute to yeast overgrowth. Some meat proteins such as chicken and poultry can be big allergens too. In addition to food allergies, cat and dog allergies can be environmental too. Using a natural anti-histamine such as AllerEase can help control an allergic response.

At the first sign of a skin odor, please take your pet to the veterinarian to determine the cause. Your pet could have an infection, parasites or an underlying endocrine disorder. Change your pet's diet to address the problem. Use supplements to prevent reoccurences and to give your pet a healthy skin and coat. We offer multiple product packages to combat skin and coat problems including K9 Yeast Defense Package and our Pet Allergy & Skin Package.

Stinky Ears—If you smell near your pet's ears and there is a strong odor, take your pet for a checkup right away. During the hot summer months, pets are prone to ear infections. Many dog ear infections are due to yeast overgrowth. Using dry kibble is often a contributing factor, especially if it contains the grains mentioned above or is high in carbohydrates. Dry pet food, while convenient for you, can greatly contribute to yeast overgrowth. Pets need fresh foods such as green vegetables, meat and Omega 3s to optimize health. Using a natural antifungal protocol such as K9 Yeast Defense along with Power Probiotic and Amazing Omegas can dramatically reduce ear infections, especially if you make the diet changes as well.

Bad Breath—Pets need dental cleanings just like we do. If you have recently had your pet’s teeth cleaned and there is still a bad odor, then your dog's bad breath needs to be addressed. Dog bad breath can be a sign of an underlying health condition such as acid stomach, poor digestion, dental or gum infection or kidney disease. It is not just a cosmetic issue—it can be a very real sign that you shouldn’t ignore. If you have an older pet, get a blood test and urine analysis. Poor digestion from food is also a very likely culprit. Dogs with bad breath often have other problems such as poor coat quality, scratching and itching and allergies. Be sure you are using a hypoallergenic pet food. To give your pet better breath and help with digestion, try our Bad Breath Kit.

Gas, Belching and Vomiting—This is something our pets may do on occassion. But frequent rumbly tummies, gas, burping and regurgitation are a sign that something is wrong. Often these signs are due to the food you are feeding. Finding the optimal food depends greatly upon the age and health conditions of your pet. For example, pets that have IBS may do just fine with potatoes while other pets with chronic ear infections do not. If your pet has digestive issues, scheduling a telephone consultation to determine the best diet and supplement program is highly recommended. It is very common for pet owners to report that years of gas and belching were early symptoms that their pet was suffering from inflammatory bowel disease. For example, cats can be susceptible to developing intestinal lymphoma after years of eating foods they have been allergic to. It is always a good idea to revisit your pet's diet with a veterinary professional if you notice any of the above digestive symptoms. Also, using the Power Probiotic and Soothing Digestive Relief can give your pets quick and immediate relief for these symptoms.

Immune Harmony: Supplement to help your cat or dog LIVING with cancer

"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!"

-Jodi Scanlan Pennsylvania January 2011


Pets with cancer require a special diet. You can learn how to prepare a homemade cancer diet for your pet. Click here for more information.

Immune Harmony

Immune Harmony 60 capsules

This is a fabulous product---very unique and well tolerated by most pets. This product is helpful for all immune conditions and can be used to treat cat and dog cancer in conjunction with chemotherapy and/or prednisone. Rather than overstimulating your pet's immune system, this wonderful product helps the body to rebalance immune function. Thus, you will see improved results over time not instantly as if you were using an antibiotic. It slowly builds in your pet's system and helps them feel better overall. We have many highly allergic pets that were scratching and itching horribly last summer, that now with continued use, are seeing their pets having a much easier time this summer. Immune Harmony does not treat symptoms immediately but over time as the pet's immune function improves, most clients report solid long-term improvement . If your pet has chronic allergy symptoms, a serious immune condition such as cancer or an autoimmune related disorder, research shows that Immune Harmony should be utilized. This is a unique one-of-a-kind product that has been scientifically tested in various world-wide studies. Immune Harmony is the only supplement that offers 300 mg of plant sterols plus powerful antioxidants (Enzogenol®) that protect the body from free radical damage, and an essential fatty acid complex (BiolysateTM) that supports the digestive system and assists in the bioavailability of these health-promoting nutrients.

Dogs and Cats with Cancer—Dogs and cats with cancer have compromised immune systems. If your pet is undergoing chemotherapy, this can also weaken your pet’s immune response. Many oncologists may prefer for you not to use immune stimulants while your pet is undergoing chemotherapy. What makes Immune Harmony so great is that it is an immune modulator, not an immune stimulant. Safe to use for pets with cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy or not. The product works over time to help build the body’s immune response.

How do the ingredients in Immune Harmony help to rebalance and support the immune system? Hundreds of studies performed in the United States and worldwide have found the sterols contained in Immune Harmony to be effective in preventing disease and maintaining health. It is also very safe, since no known toxicity has been found. The research has found beta sitosterol to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and immunomodulatory properties. Immunomodulatory means to regulate or balance the immune system. If someone has a weak immune system (e.g. cancer), beta sitosterol can activate the T-cells (immune cells that go to the thymus to be activated) and natural killers cells; these cells fight foreign organisms that invade the body and also fight cancerous cells. On the other hand, if the immune system is over active, as is the case with allergies or autoimmune disorders, beta sitosterol can calm down the immune system.

In the area of cancer, scientific studies indicate that beta sitosterol has a powerful inhibitory effect on breast, prostate, and colon cancer. Recent studies provide evidence that increased consumption of polyphenols can reduce the risk of prostate, breast, lung and digestive cancers. In addition to the plant sterols, Immune Harmony includes some beneficial ingredients that enhance the effectiveness of the product, making it especially unique. To learn about the ingredients in Immune Harmony or for more information on the product and how to better treat cancer in your cat or dog please visit our website. Click here for more information.

Natural Treatments for Pets with Cancer





Malignant Mammary Tumor Testimonial

"Cookie is my senior cocker spaniel/dachshund mix rescued a few years ago. Just over a year ago, she had a malignant mammary tumor removed and it was suggested that she have chemotherapy immediately thereafter so it wouldn't come back. Instead, I did some research for alternatives, found Ask Ariel, and then decided to try the OncoPet and Immune Harmony cancer package. It is obvious that Cookie's health only got better from that point on and I am grateful to Susan Davis for her advice and fabulous products! Cookie also benefits from Phosphatidyl Serine for her Cushing's Disease, Amazing Omegas, and Power Probiotic. Thanks also to the Ask Ariel team for superb customer service and fabulous bonus gifts. It is clear that you all care very much about your customers and their furbabies! Thanks again!!" Gina Berardino Florida 2011Click here to view all of Ask Ariel's holistic supplements for cancer.

Natural Treatments for Pets with Cancer

By far, the best results we have seen in cancer patients has been when the pet owner was able to catch the cancer early (as a result of regular laboratory testing) AND when a combination of both conventional and holistic medicine is used. While holistic veterinary medicine cannot cure cancer, it can make a tremendous difference. It is unfortunate that many times, people don’t discover the wonders of giving their pets the best nutrition and supplements until their pet has been diagnosed with a serious illness. The best way to help prevent cancer is to start at the beginning of your pet’s life, giving them optimal nutrition, vitamins, Omega 3s and building a sound immune system. But, even if your pet has been recently diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, it is not too late to make important changes that can give you more time. It is analogous to the advertisements you might have heard about lung cancer and that it is never too late to stop smoking!

One misconception that can be misleading for pet owners is that there is not “one” diet or “one” set of nutritional supplements for a pet with cancer. The reason is that cancer can have many forms, arising in different parts of the body which will affect the pet’s nutritional needs differently. All pets do need nutritious whole foods rich in Omega 3s, vegetables and some quality protein (varies depending upon the pet’s condition). Common sense should be the guiding factor in feeding your pet. Be sure to avoid giving your pet anything with artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. Never give animal fat such as chicken skin or fat from a piece of steak for example. Avoid foods made from simple carbohydrates such as biscuits, bread or crackers. Use caution with protein--giving your pet endless amounts of protein is not advisable, everything should be in balance as in some cases (e.g. if the pet has a liver condition) too much protein can be harmful. We strongly urge you to seek the advice of a veterinary professional for dietary advice. Telephone consultations are available at Ask Ariel if you would like assistance in developing a home made diet and determining a holistic plan for your pet with cancer.

Listed below are some of the more common forms of cancer in pets. As you can see, cancer can develop in different parts of the body and depending upon where it is found, the pets need for nutritional supplements vary.

Lymphoma - is cancer of the lymphatic tissue. The lymph system is a core part of the body’s immune system. The lymphatic system is an extensive drainage network that defends the body against infections. It is comprised of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry lymph (a clear, watery fluid that contains protein, salts, glucose and other substances) throughout the body. The lymphatic system also serves as a low pressure drainage system that collects interstitial fluid throughout the body and returns it to the bloodstream. The most common sign of lymphoma is a painless enlargement of the lymph nodes.

Mast Cell Tumors – Mast cell tumors are among the most common tumors in dogs and are the most common type of skin cancer found in dogs. The most common location to find mast cell tumors is, by far, the skin, followed by the spleen, liver, and bone marrow. Both normal and cancerous mast cells contain chemicals that can be released into surrounding tissues. When these chemicals (particularly histamine) are released into the normal surrounding body tissues, side effects can include digestive problems (for ex: bleeding ulcers), skin rashes, shortness of breath and other symptoms. Mast cell tumors vary greatly in their size, shape, appearance and texture. The only way to definitely identify them is with a biopsy and pathology report.

Hemangiosarcoma – Most commonly found in the spleen, liver and heart and the prognosis is determined by the location of the disease. The cancer arises from the blood vessels and results in the production of abnormal blood vessels that can be weak and prone to leaking. As the cancer progresses, the cancerous vessels can rupture and results in blood loss. As the spleen is the organ most commonly affected by this type of cancer, rupture can lead to blood loss into the abdomen. This is an emergency situation and can result in weakness and collapse. Many pets with hemangiosarcoma often require a splenectomy.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma – Cancer that occurs in the mouth, underneath the tongue or along the gums of the middle-aged and older cats. Common signs of squamous cell carcinoma in cats includes difficulty eating, interest in food but not wanting to eat, drooling and odor from the mouth.

Osteosarcoma -- Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone tumor in dogs. Osteosarcoma beings in the bone but can spread throughout the bloodstream very early in the course of the disease (metastasis). The most common areas for this cancer to appear are the wrist, shoulder, knee and hip. The first sign of bone cancer is lameness due to pain from the cancer. Swelling often occurs at the tumor site.

Transitional Cell Carcinoma – Tumors usually form at the bladder opening and can cause blockage causing painful urinartion. Pets often strain while trying to urinate. Transitional Cell Carcinoma can be difficult to diagnose because many of the symptoms such as straining to urinate, blood in the urine or frequent urination are often due to a urinary tract infection. This can delay the discovery of the cancer, especially since antibiotics can often result in some improvement of symptoms. Thus, at the time of diagnosis, bladder cancer can be fairly far advanced and have spread to other parts of the body.

Adenocarcinoma – Anal sac adenocarcinomas are tumors arising from the apocrine glands present on either side of the rectum. These tumors can range greatly in size from a very small mass that can be found only after a rectal examination or a large mass protruding from the rectum. While the tumor appears locally, it is quite common for them to metastasize, often to the lymph nodes inbetween the spine and colon. Symptoms vary depending upon the gender of the pet and can include increased thirst, weakness, persistent licking at the site, difficulty defecating, decreased appetite.

Nutritional supplements should address the most critical needs facing the pet which will vary over time. In other words, the supplements that a pet needs at one point in their cancer care most likely will not be the same at a later time. This can be very confusing for pet owners who seek to find a few master remedies that will help to keep their pet comfortable and increase their longevity as much as possible. For example, the most pressing issue at the beginning of cancer therapy may be to help a pet with digestive problems, diarrhea or vomiting and not use any supplements at all specifically for cancer until the pet’s digestive condition stabilizes. Again, we encourage you to seek the advice of a veterinary professional in selecting supplements for your pet as their needs will vary, especially if your pet is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.

Some key objectives in using nutritional supplementation for cancer are:
1) Supportive care for digestion (many pets with cancer have digestive issues)
2) Supportive care for the organs affected (e.g. liver support supplements if the pet has liver cancer)
3) Immune system support
4) Detoxification to help release toxins
5) Antioxidants to neutralize free radicals (limited use with approval from your veterinarian if undergoing chemotherapy/radiation)

When selecting products specifically for your pet’s cancer, be sure to check whether the products are deemed safe to use during chemotherapy and/or radiation if your pet is undergoing treatment. Good manufacturers will have researched this issue carefully and will advise you. For example, OncoPet Cancer Vitamin and Regeneration Cancer Formula (dogs only) are two formulas that have been used extensively with cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. We also offer a premium, comprehensive Pet Cancer Supplement Package that includes our two cancer selections: Immune Harmony (great for autoimmune, cancer and allergy conditions) and OncoPet Cancer Vitamin (broad based cancer support).

There is no question that we have seen by far the best results when patients use a combination of both conventional and holistic veterinary medicine when treating their pets with cancer. Regardless of the treatment protocol, a nutritious diet and some carefully selected supplements can only help to strengthen the pet and keep them feeling more comfortable. Research and education are key, as well as working with your veterinarian and other veterinary professionals to ensure that your pet is receiving all of the treatment alternatives possible—both conventional and holistic.

Purrfect Pet CoQ10 is Perfect for Feline Kidney Disease (CRF), Canine Heart Disease and Senior Pets













Purrfect Pet CoQ10
60 Softgels

Give Your Pets The Very Best CoQ10!

Especially helpful for:
*Pets with kidney disease
*Pets with cancer
*Senior pets--gives them energy
*Pets with heart conditions
*Pets with gum bleeding and stomatitis
*Cardioprotective support during chemotherapy or radiation

Get great quality at an affordable price--a little goes a long way! Purity and potency guaranteed. Third Party Tested. CoQ10 varies greatly in quality and effectiveness depending on where and how it is manufactured. Supplements are not regulated by the FDA. Other CoQ10 products might look the same, but could contain cheap materials and artificial ingredients that can be harmful to your pet!!! Be sure to use a gelcap, with CoQ10 from Japan, third party tested to ensure it is safe and healthy for your pet.

Easy to Administer to Cats and Dogs--Gelcaps can be squeezed on food for small pets or put into a broth and syringed in if pet is extra finicky! The CoQ10 is in an oil base that most pets will eat or give as a whole capsule to larger pets.

Critical antioxidant---essential for feline kidney disease and canine kidney disease, cancer, heart disease and overall good health. CoEnzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that is found in every cell of the body. It is critical for the production of energy and facilitates the activities of enzymes (the catalysts for all chemical reactions, e.g. energy production). As we age, our body's supply of CoQ10 diminishes, especially if taking cholesterol lowering drugs such as Lipitor. Numerous research studies on this vital nutrient have found it to be especially beneficial for diseases such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, gum problems, diabetes and more.

Buyer beware---CoQ10 is not the same---depending upon where and how it is manufactured, this vital nutrient may or may not be "bioavailable" and/or usable by the body. Purity and potency are extremely important when selecting a manufacturer of CoQ10. Purrfect Pet Coenzyme Q10 softgels use an advanced technology that provides an efficient and natural method of nutrient delivery, offering enhanced absorption and assimilation versus ordinary capsules and tablets containing Coenzyme Q10. This soluble, pre-emulsified form of CoQ10 is a great choice when you want to ensure better absorption of this powerful nutrient. Also, it is free of PEG, polysorbate 80 and Titanium Dioxide, which are often found in other CoQ10 softgel products.

This formula gives pets energy!!!! Watch them perk up especially when used together with the Resveratrol Synery.

The formula was just recently enhanced and is now backed by a clinical trial that yielded impressive results. Study results show peak absorption of Purrfect Pet CoQ10 is 8 times greater than dry powder and two times greater than its toughest human-grade competition when compared to dry powder, liposomal, nanoparticle, and partial dissolved in oil formulations. Purrfect Pet CoQ10 underwent other clinical trials as well, including a 36-hour peak absorption study to determine the total amount of CoQ10 absorbed and a 28-day steady state study to determine the amount of CoQ10 in the blood plasma available for use by the body cells. In these studies, Purrfect Pet CoQ10 was compared to a standard dry powder CoQ10 product. The results of the 36-hour absorption study showed that Purrfect Pet CoQ10 had a total absorption of 11.65% compared to dry powder having an absorption of 1.32%, which makes Purrfect Pet CoQ10 783% more absorbable than dry powder. The results of the 28-day steady state study showed that at the end of 28 days there were 8989 ug/ml of Purrfect Pet CoQ10 available for use by the cells, compared to 1623 ug/ml of dry powder CoQ10. This makes Purrfect Pet CoQ10 441% more bioavailable than dry powder CoQ10.

Purrfect Pet CoQ10 is designed for optimal absorption, stability and cost-efficiency. Oral supplementation with CoQ10 is often desired to improve immune function, mitochondrial metabolism and energy production in the support of fatigue-related disorders, the enhancement of athletic performance, periodontal problems and the support of cardiomyopathy and neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s. CoQ10 has also been demonstrated to be an effective antioxidant, reducing lipid peroxidation. It is extremely helpful for pets with kidney and liver disease as well.

If your pet has kidney disease, cancer, a heart condition, periodontal disease or liver issues--this product should be an important part of the treatment regimen.

Stop Dog Ear Infections and Yeast




















K9 Yeast Defense on Sale Through Friday June 3rd

Pets That May Benefit From K9 Yeast Defense

1) Pets with chronic ear infections or pets that chronically scratch at the ears

2) Pets that have taken multiple rounds of antibiotics or steroids for skin problems

3) Pets that chew and lick on the groin area and genitals excessively (and UTI has been ruled out via lab testing)

4) Pets with chronic itching and skin problems that have previously been diagnosed with yeast overgrowth

5) Pets that have a musty odor, even after bathing (this can also be due to bacterial overgrowth)

Yeast thrives in moist locations of the body (e.g. intestines, ears, genitals, etc) and moist climates, especially where there is a great deal of humidity. Often, when pets have allergies, chronic itching and skin problems, your veterinarian may diagnose both a bacterial overgrowth and yeast overgrowth. Antibiotics will address the bacterial overgrowth but can often lead to further yeast overgrowth. It is important after using antibiotics or steroids, to give your pet Power Probiotic to replace good bacteria as antibiotics kill off ALL bacteria--both good and bad. Please note that diets high in grains and carbohydrates can also promote yeast overgrowth. For optimal results, pets with yeast will respond best by using the Complete K9 Yeast Defense Package along with Notatum (natural anti-inflammatory and anti-infective) and Amazing Omegas.

Please note that some pets with the symptoms above may have a bacterial infection as well and so it is always best to check with your veterinarian.
