Joint Support for Canines

Carolina Dog, Schatzie in her bedAbout a week ago my dog Schatzie and I had a close encounter of the coyote kind! Two in fact. Schatzie warned off one and the young one that was left behind in the chase seemed scared and confused. So I took Schatzie in another direction so we could give each other space with no harm no foul other than a limping Schatzie girl. She’s much better today though thanks to a good ‪raindrop technique‬ application, AgilEase, and a little homeopathy for possible soreness. All of those work to also provide joint support in our dogs AND us.

The next day we did go a little slower in our walk/run but by the second day Schatzie was back to her normal Running Wolf self.

I am still giving her the AgilEase daily, as well as King for support. They are both raw fed but due to some challenges they have had over the last year, they have needed extra support. I have to say the AgilEase (a new product from Young Living) has REALLY impressed me. Normally it can take at least 30-60 days to see some improvement with a nutritional supplement and 90 to see marked improvement. I saw it within a week of using this with them!

Here is the product information page on this product for those curious:

And on the Raindrop Technique, here is a lesson I provide through my ReBARKably SCENT-Able Canine course.

Additionally my dogs sleep on grounding mats and also have magnetic mattresses in all of their beds (they have four in the house):

Of course we follow all eight laws of health for our dogs as well:
1. Nutrition – species appropriate and raw
2. Exercise – daily
3. Water – pure, with no chlorine or fluoride
4. Sunshine/supplements – sunshine as they desire (dogs need it for different reasons than us since most of their Vitamin D is acquired through their raw meat/bone/organ diet), whole food supplements when needed
5. Moderation in all things
6. Fresh air
7. Proper rest – in total dark without all sorts of electronic contrivances running
8. Trust – in the 7 previous laws and trust in God

Just thought I’d share what is working for us.

Until next time…

Have a pawsitively tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!
