Kidney Disease

Essential Kidney Kit for Dogs 661822001608

A combination of the three essential products to support functional, healthy kidneys and optimize your pet's immune system.

This kit contains Kidney Support Gold, Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains and Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil.

  • Helps maintain proper fluid balance
  • Supports normal weight, appetite and energy levels
  • Promotes good immunity
  • Probiotics and essential fatty acids provide the best support for the kidneys

Veterinarian Comment: "In my practice, it's not uncommon to see a remarkable improvement when these three products are administered together. They each work in a different way with great results for the pet. I'm happy that PWB finally offers these together."

Kidney disease, or renal failure, is when the kidneys fail to filter impurities out of the blood and concentrate the urine. Does your dog have to go out much more frequently? Is he or she drinking much more than usual? Your pet's kidneys are the most likely organs to cause health problems as they age. Kidney problems can manifest in two types of kidney disease:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Acute kidney disease
  • Chronic kidney disease sneaks up gradually over months or years and, tragically, is the leading cause of death in dogs. Acute kidney failure is often the result of ingesting toxins, and is sometimes reversible.

    If your pet suffers from any form of kidney disease, visit your vet to discuss treatment options. These can include intravenous fluid treatment, eventually dialysis (mechanically filtering the blood), various drugs, and possibly even a kidney transplant. A low sodium / high phosphorus diet will likely be recommended, as high blood pressure accompanies kidney disease. Signs of kidney failure can include: loss of appetite, weight loss, increased drinking, increase or decline in urine volume, diarrhea, vomiting and, in later stages, anemia.

    Kidney Support Gold

    This unique formula is a gentle yet powerful combination of herbal ingredients, tested by our holistic veterinarians. Kidney Support Gold is comprised of scientifically researched extracts for supporting total kidney health. The result is a formula that is excellent for aging dogs and is an essential part of your canine's long term health regime for helping to maintain normal kidney function.

    The effects of the herbs in Kidney Support Gold have been studied for their "tonic" actions. Tonic herbs are restorative, help maintain vitality, and provide nutrition to the body in a way that it can readily absorb.

    Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains

    This is a high potency probiotic supplement for pets, supplying nine different strains of probiotics with added prebiotics. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains contains beneficial strains specific for dogs and cats, at a highly effective potency.

    Beneficial bacteria exist throughout the bodies of humans and animals. They are vital to our existence and regulate numerous physiological processes. These organisms are passed from a mother to the offspring during birth and begin to populate the body inside and out, including the mucosa of the digestive tract and the layers of the skin. Throughout life, there are many things we come into contact with that can harm this microbiome or microflora, as it is sometimes called. Stressors can include medications, infections, environmental toxins and unhealthy foods.

    Ingesting beneficial bacteria through foods and supplements supports the microbiome to stay strong and healthy. Probiotic bacteria are a normal and necessary part of the body's defense against harmful pathogens. Without these beneficial bacteria, the body is less resistant to infections, has difficulty digesting foods and displays less neurological stability. A strong immune system and absorption of nutrients are definitely of benefit to animals with Chronic Kidney Disease.

    Why are probiotics administered for kidney support?

    The gut flora of patients with chronic kidney disease is different. These animals benefit from GI support and supplementation with probiotics can help. Some studies suggest that probiotics lower the levels of uremic toxins in the body.

    Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil

    Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil from Pet Wellbeing is rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Our salmon oil, from pink and sockeye salmon, is sustainably caught in the cold, Alaskan waters. It is triple filtered and cold-processed in a human grade, certified GMP facility. Each batch produced is third party tested for mercury and other heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins and bacteria to ensure the purest product for your pet.

    Kidney Support: The amount of omega-3 in Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is the most appropriate amount to support pets with kidney issues, and is vet-recommended for these pets.

    Kidney Support Gold - Maintains Healthy Kidney Function In Dogs 661822000076

    About Dog Kidney Disease

    In humans, the heart is the organ most likely to cause health problems as we age. In canines, it’s the kidneys. Kidney problems are among the top causes of illness and death in older dogs. Two common types of canine kidney problems are:

    • Chronic renal (kidney) failure
    • Kidney stones

    Renal (kidney) failure, as its name implies, is when the kidney fails to filter impurities out of the blood and concentrate the urine. Acute kidney failure is often the result of ingesting toxins, and is sometimes reversible. Chronic kidney failure sneaks up more gradually, and is a leading cause of death in dogs.

    Treating kidney disease in canines

    If your dog is suffering from any form of kidney disease, you should see your vet to discuss conventional treatment options. These include intravenous fluid treatment, dialysis (artificial blood filtering), various drugs, and even kidney transplants.

    A low sodium diet is often recommended, as high blood pressure often accompanies kidney failure. A reduced protein diet is also often recommended.

     

    What is Kidney Support Gold?

    This unique formula is a gentle yet powerful combination of herbal ingredients, tested by our holistic veterinarians. Kidney Support Gold is comprised of scientifically researched extracts for supporting total kidney health. The result is a formula that is excellent for aging dogs and is an essential part of your canine's long term health regime for helping to maintain normal kidney function.

    The effects of the herbs in Kidney Support Gold have been studied for their "tonic" actions. Tonic herbs are restorative, help maintain vitality, and provide nutrition to the body in a way that it can readily absorb.

    What is Kidney Support Gold used for?

    Kidney Support Gold is for long term use when supporting normal renal function is imperative. This formula is created by using current research of time-honored herbs used in traditional Asian medicine for the kidneys and overall vitality.

    • Supports normal fluid and electrolyte balance.
    • Helps in the maintenance of normal levels of blood urea and creatinine (products of metabolism excreted by the kidneys).
    • Supports the health of nephrons (parts of the kidneys that help it to filter blood).
    • Helps to maintain normal protein excreted in the urine.
    • Helps the body's immune system respond normally to bacteria and viruses.

    Additional Support:

    Be sure that your dog is receiving adequate water intake. This is vital to the health of the kidneys. Ensure that a fresh, clean water source is available at all times, encouraging your dog to drink by providing different bowls or "pet fountains". Sometimes flavoring the water can entice your pet to drink more and lower the risk of dehydration.

    Your veterinarian can advise you about giving your canine a diet low in protein and phosphate content, both important aspects of supporting the kidneys.

    Kidney Support Gold is a safe, natural alternative for your dog's general vitality. It really is Gold!

    Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains for Healthy Digestion in Dogs 661822000380

    What is our Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains?

    This is a high potency probiotic supplement for pets, supplying nine different strains of probiotics with added prebiotics. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains contains beneficial strains specific for dogs and cats, at a highly effective potency.

    Beneficial bacteria exist throughout the bodies of humans and animals. They are vital to our existence and regulate numerous physiological processes. These organisms are passed from a mother to the offspring during birth and begin to populate the body inside and out, including the mucosa of the digestive tract and the layers of the skin. Throughout life, there are many things we come into contact with that can harm this microbiome or microflora, as it is sometimes called. Stressors can include medications, infections, environmental toxins and unhealthy foods.

    Ingesting beneficial bacteria through foods and supplements supports the microbiome to stay strong and healthy. Probiotic bacteria are a normal and necessary part of the body's defence against harmful pathogens. Without these beneficial bacteria, the body is less resistant to infections, has difficulty digesting foods and displays less neurological stability.

    Be sure when comparing the strengths of different probiotic supplements, that you are comparing the same milligrams or grams.

    FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) are added as a prebiotic and soluble fiber to support the health of the probiotics as well as the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.

    What is Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains used for?

    Increasing research demonstrates just how important a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria really is. Of all the cells that comprise the immune system, approximately 70% of those cells are located in the intestines. When pathogens are orally introduced into the body, the cells in the gut provide a major part of the body's natural defenses and ability to fight harmful bacteria and viruses. This is true for humans as well as animals. Put simply, healthy gut flora help maintain a strong immune system.

    The key to maintaining a healthy balance of flora is to incorporate probiotics into a daily regimen and/or make probiotic-rich foods part of a regular diet. Probiotics are found in lacto-fermented foods, such as fermented sauerkraut (i.e. not the kind made with vinegar or wine). Fermented dairy products such as unsweetened yogurt and kefir also help supply the body with beneficial bacteria.

    Why do so many animals require probiotics for optimal health? As mentioned, the factors that can damage this vital microbiome in the digestive tract range from unhealthy foods to environmental toxins to medications. A single course of antibiotic treatment, though sometimes absolutely necessary, can wipe out the intended harmful bacteria it is meant to destroy but also the beneficial bacteria, leaving the body vulnerable to recurring infections, digestive problems, allergies and more.

    Besides the maintenance of good health, there are many conditions that benefit from the use of probiotics:

    • Sensitivities, particularly diet-related
    • Immunity
    • Bowel health and Digestion
    • Urinary tract
    • Skin disorders
    • Physical and emotional stress
    • Anxiety
    • Before and after kennel boarding
    • Diet change
    • If taking medications, especially antibiotics

    Always seek the consultation of your veterinarian, as needed.

    A Note from our Veterinarian...

    I can't stress enough the importance of regular feeding of probiotics to your dog. It might help to think of probiotics as a food and in many ways. They are a part of food that most people eat very little of in their modern diets and something dogs receive little to none of, unless your dog enjoys regular servings of fermented sauerkraut. I know my dog doesn't!

    Probiotics are safe and effective and Pet Wellbeing's Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies the correct strains, in the correct potency, to deliver a comprehensive product. Unfortunately, there are too many probiotic products available that offer a shortage of strains (or strains that may not be very useful to pets) in less than ideal quantities. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies 10 billion organisms per gram

    Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains will remain freshest if refrigerated after opening.

    Probiotics are easily mixed with food, although most dogs will happily lick the powder up, given the naturally pleasant taste. Probiotics are ideally given after a meal but really can be given at any time, including with food. It is far better to feed at any time of day, than not at all, including on an empty stomach. There will be no issues tolerating probiotics on an empty stomach.

    My recommendation is to incorporate probiotics into your pet's diet any time and not wait until there is a big need. It is some of the best insurance you can provide for the future health of your pet.

    Can my dog take Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains with prescription drugs?

    As a general rule, it is not recommended to administer anything else if you give your dog blood thinners.

    Does it come with a guarantee?

    Yes! Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains comes with a 90 day, money-back guarantee.

    Why choose Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains?

    • Selectively chosen ingredients:  This formula is entirely prepared from ingredients from trusted sources only.
    • Every batch tested:  All raw materials are tested for identification and purity. Every batch of our Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains is tested to ensure the highest quality and purity. Every single batch.

    Ark Naturals Gentle Digest for Dogs & Cats 632634100087

    Why should I use prebiotics and probiotics for my dog?;

    When we hear the word "bacteria" a lot of us assume this is a harmful organism however certain bacteria are not only friendly but necessary for your pets health!

    Bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifido-bacterium bifidum, and Lactobacillus bulgaricus are a few of the helpful microorganisms that can reside in your dog or cat's intestinal tract where they play an important role in defending the body against disease and illness. This friendly bacteria can sometimes get outnumbered due to an array of different circumstances such as:

    • Use of medications such as antibiotics
    • A less than adequate diet
    • A compromised immune system
    • Aging
    • Chemical pollutants
    • Stress

    How do I know if my dog needs Gentle Digest?

    Some of the most common symptoms of an upset digestive system are:

    • Diarrhea
    • Gas
    • Constipation
    • Skin problems
    • Yeast overgrowth including ears
    • Lethargy
    • IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
    • IBD ( Inflammatory Bowel Disease)

    Why should I choose Ark Naturals Gentle Digest?

    • Gentle digest contains patented Lactobacillus bacteria sporogenes. These are microencapsulated lactobacillus spores which are resistant to heat and stomach acid. Sporogenes germinate within the optimum growth environment of the intestines to deliver a maximum concentration of viable (live) lactobacilli. Many probiotic products on the market for both humans and pets are useless because they contain virtually no live bacteria.
    • Gentle digest also contains fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) from chicory root. FOS are small sugar polymers that serve as preferred foods for lactobacilli, hence encouraging their growth.
    • Aids digestion and absorption of processed pet foods. Pets may also suffer digestive difficulties due to wheat, corn, soy, sugar, and starch commonly added to pet foods.
    • Normal levels of lactobacilli in the intestines are known to enhance the absorption of essential trace elements including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron in both animals and humans.

    Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil 16 oz 661822001233

    What is Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil?

    Decades ago, it was discovered through scientific means that human populations with higher intake of fish experienced less joint inflammation and less heart disease. This lead to greater discoveries and studies, and it is now widely known that DHA and EPA (the two main Omega-3 essential fatty acids in fish oil) are responsible for blocking inflammatory responses in the bodies of both humans and animals.

    DHA and EPA are so important for the health of pets, that minimum levels have been established for all dog and cat foods produced and sold in the U.S.. As our pets age, they have decreased ability to deal with inflammation. Their immune systems often change and joint stiffness is considered an all-too-common problem for senior pets. Joint problems change a pet's quality of life, their enjoyment of exercise, and can lead to a daily level of discomfort that is difficult to live with. Kidney Support: The amount of omega-3 in Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is the most appropriate amount to support pets with kidney issues, and is vet-recommended for these pets.

    What is Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Used For?

    A dog or cat living with joint discomfort and limited range of movement (even slight) will greatly benefit from much larger amounts of Omega-3's than is available in any standard pet diet. They will benefit from therapeutic levels of Omega-3's because certain amounts of these nutritional elements are required to block the inflammatory pathways. Fish oils are the richest source of Omega-3's. Likewise, if your pet requires renal (kidney) support, make sure he or she is taking salmon oil.

    Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil from Pet Wellbeing is rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Our salmon oil, from pink and sockeye salmon, is sustainably caught in the cold, Alaskan waters. It is triple filtered and cold-processed in a human grade, certified GMP facility. Each batch produced is third party tested for mercury and other heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins and bacteria to ensure the purest product for your pet.

    Watch for these signs of joint problems in your pet:

    • Limping and stiffness
    • Slower walk
    • Trouble getting to a standing position
    • More tired and sleeping longer
    • Tenderness around certain joints; may react
    • Licking joints
    • Reluctance to jump
    • Mood changes

    In addition to support for your pet's joints, Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is an essential part of nutrition for a healthy heart, for brain and memory, and for a resilient immune system. Consider adding Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil to your pet's food every day.
