 DERMagic Skin Rescue Lotion
(click for more information)

This fresh-smelling topical lotion offers pets fast and effective relief from skin irritations, hot spots, black skin disease, scaly skin, flea allergies, dermatitis, and dry skin conditions. Organic whole-leaf aloe vera gel and vitamin E rush healing energy to the deepest layers of the skin. Sulfur, known as the “healing mineral,” reduces itching and flaking associated with seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff, is toxic to the scabies mite, and is both antibacterial and antifungal. Rosemary essential oil disinfects and stimulates hair follicles. And, sesame oil is naturally antibacterial for common skin pathogens such as staphylococcus and streptococcus, as well as common skin fungi (including yeast infections), and is a natural antiviral and anti-inflammatory agent.

BIG COUNTRY RAW HERRING OIL

Big Country Raw's pure Atlantic Herring oil is an excellent alternative to salmon and flax oil. Boasting high values of vital Omega 3 Fatty Acids, this oil promotes healthy skin and glossy coat, a healthy immune system, cardiovascular health and healthy brain development.

BIOFATS

Comprehensive essential fatty acid source for cats and dogs with added potent antioxidant base. Healthy supply of active omega-3 and essential omega-6 fats which cannot be supplied at requisite levels in dry, processed foods. The body cannot manufacture these essential fats; they must be supplied abundantly by the diet, providing the body with substrates for hormones and cell membrane structure.

ESSENTIAL FAT COORDINATION
Cats are true carnivores, requiring meat and animal products in their diets. Dogs are omnivores, consuming a combination of high-protein foods (meat) and vegetation. The amino acid requirements for dogs and cats are similar, with the exception of taurine, essential only for cats, but the status of essential fatty acids differs more. Cats require dietary sources of the (omega-6) fats arachidonic acid and linoleic acid. Dogs only require linoleic acid and produce all others from this single one. Humans differ again by requiring both linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha linolenic acid (omega-3). Therefore, fat proportions in supplements designed for humans are not appropriate for feline and canine supplementation.

ZINPRO SUPPLEMENTAL TREATS FOR DOGS

WHAT TYPE OF SKIN & COAT PROBLEMS BENEFIT MOST FROM ZINPRO?
Even if a dog is fed a premium pet food or a special diet, and is still having skin & coat problems they may be Zinc deficient. 
Some of the signs and symptoms are:
* Chronic hair loss, excessive Shedding (not associated with seasonal shedding)
* Dull coats with Slow & Sparse hair growth
* Dry Flaky Skin, & Itchy Conditions
* Poor quality Footpads, Elbows & Nails
* Hot Spots, Rashes
* Dogs that experience allergies and the resulting symptoms
* Skin Scabs on the abdomen & thighs

As a dog owner you may have been presented with various skin and coat problems with your dog. Considerable attention has been given to the involvement of the trace element of zinc, in pet nutrition. Zinc is the second highest requirement of the trace minerals in a dog’s diet. Only iron is required in higher amounts.
Zinc is involved in most of the enzymes systems of the body. However its main involvement is with:

1. Protein synthesis, skin.
Skin and coat are mainly made up of protein, which require substantial amounts of bioavailable zinc to aid in the maintenance and repair (healing) of skin tissue.
2. Autoimmune system:
The body allows the animal to fight off infections, as well as instrument its own healing process. A readily available source of zinc is necessary for the dog to heal skin which has been injured due to scratching, flea bites, allergies. NOW zinc is available for your dog in the form of a dog biscuit. The product is under the brand name Zinpro Dog Biscuits. The organic bonding makes Zinpro, a highly available source of zinc, and is free from the intestinal upsets that plagues the use of other inorganic sources.
Tests using Zinpro Dog Biscuits in many dogs with chronic skin and coat problems has resulted in an improvement after about 4-6 weeks after initial usage. Skin quality often improves, and as healthy hair grows from healthy skin, the hair coat usually shows improvement as well. Zinpro is not a drug, It is a mineral, non toxic, and safe. Zinpro does not contain cortisone and can be used as, the biscuit of choice.

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID
CHOLESTEROL SUPPORT
HELPS WITH CONSTIPATION


EPA
Eicosapentaenoic acid is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. It is an important fatty acid in the maintenance of cardiovascular health and the regulation of inflammation. EPA is a precursor to a series of chemicals whose job it is to regulate the inflammatory effects of arachidonic acid. Too much arachidonic acid leads to pain and inflammation in conditions such as arthritis. 
Arachidonic acid also causes inflammation in arteries and leads to the development of atherosclerotic plaques. Deficiency of EPA can result in cardiac arrhythmias, high cholesterol and excessive aging. EPA has been used to treat heart disease, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
DHA
Docosahexanoic acid is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. It is an essential component of the brain and central nervous system. It seems to concentrate in areas where there is lots of electrical activity such as the synaptosomes, where nerve cells communicate, and the photoreceptors of the eye. This is why a deficiency of DHA can result in poor brain development, attention/deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, memory problems and poor visual development. 
Supplementation of DHA is especially important in pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and children. Some infant formulas are now fortified with DHA because, in the past, formula has contained less essential fatty acids than breast milk.
Why are Essential Fats Essential?
Without the healthy fats cells become porous and chemical or nutrient imbalances can occur. The essential fats also produce chemical messengers, such as hormones, in the body thus, omega 3-6-9 oils help to optimize hormone levels in both men and women. Essential fatty acids have been used to treat eczema, psoriasis, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, menopause and PMS. They also improve hair and skin, prevent blood clots, improve memory and regulate hormone levels.

There are three categories of EFAs, omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9. Vegetable-based combination oils usually contain alpha-linolenic acid, ALA, for omega 3, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), for omega 6 and oleic acid, for omega-9. The sources of the oils are several of the following: flaxseed, borage, black currant, hemp, pumpkin seed, primrose, sunflower or safflower. Some combination oils include fish oils derived from fish such as herring, cod, mackerel, tuna or salmon. These oils give the added benefit of containing docosahexanoic acid, DHA, and eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA, two other types of omega 3 fatty acids.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

As written in an excellent, 1997 article by Wendy Volhard:

"...If your dog has itchy skin, the beginnings of a hot spot, incessantly washes its feet, has smelly ears, or is picky about his food, the application of ACV may change things around.

Taken internally, ACV is credited with maintaining the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive tract. To check your dog's pH balance, pick up some pH strips at the drug store, and first thing in the morning test the dog's urine. If it reads anywhere from 6.2 - 6.5, your dog's system is exactly where it should be. If it is 7.5 or higher, the diet you are feeding is too alkaline, and ACV will re-establish the correct balance.

If you have a dog that has clear, watery discharge from the eyes, a runny nose, or coughs with a liquid sound, use ACV in his or her food. One teaspoon twice a day for a 50 lb. dog will do the job.

After your weekly grooming sessions, use a few drops in his or her ears after cleaning them to avoid ear infections. Other uses for ACV are the prevention of muscle weakness, cramps, feeling the cold, calluses on elbows and hock joints, constipation, bruising too easily, pimples on skin surfaces, twitching of facial muscles, sore joints, arthritis and pus in the urine. There are also reports that it is useful in the prevention of bladder and kidney stones. Fleas, flies, ticks and bacteria, external parasites, ring worm, fungus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, pneumococcus, mange, etc., are unlikely to inhabit a dog whose system is acidic inside and out.
