We are all quite familiar with a broad range of natural healthy supplements that help to strengthen and nourish us in order to make up for deficiencies we believe we cannot help. It depends on the lifestyle and unfortunately there is very much a degree of truth to this. Health advocates, particularly those that have put their weight behind natural alternatives in healing and remedial practices as well as embracing the organic lifestyle are having none of it.
Let’s be honest, and who can blame them. We seem to have become quite lax in the way we go about our everyday health and nutritional requirements and in our turn have embraced the short term benefits and quick fix remedies that many of these supplements, approved or not, bring. But if animals could choose, would they still be doing the natural and healthy thing. Perhaps, but the world that we and they live in suggests that this is no longer possible.
We are still their custodians and it is a well-known crux that domestic, wild and commercially used animals cannot be left to their own devices. They simply would not be able to survive. Today’s era has also seen to it that their recommended daily diets have been affected. Fortunately for them they now have their supplements to. Domestic dogs and cats can be treated to bacon flavored natural supplements while their equine brothers and sisters can have their horse supplements when there is simply not enough hay, grass or oats to go around.
Product labels, however, should be inspected with care and scrutiny. Make sure that the natural supplement has been recommended by the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. While you take care of yourself, you can certainly take care of your animals.
