FAQ's *

Why should my pet take herbs and supplements?

Herbs and supplements may work to help address the root causes of underlying disharmonies within an animal. Herbs and supplements are gentle, safe yet effective and have been used successfully for thousands of years to help support health and wellness.  (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Are Natura Petz Organics products created by veterinarians? 

Our formulas are developed and evaluated by holistic veterinarians, herbalists and scientists for maximum utilization by dogs, cats and horses as well have been formulated to be used in conjunction with other Natura Petz Organics products to realize potential maximum therapeutic benefits. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Are Natura Petz Organics products pharmaceutical grade?

The purity, potency and efficacy of our products are scientifically formulated at bio-available, pharmaceutical grades to help your pet enjoy optimum health and wellness. The active plant chemical components are available in both single and multi-blend formulas to provide the best metabolic support possible for condition or disease specific applications. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

How do supplements work for animal wellness?

Supplements work using a system of observing signs and symptoms, the information which is then translated into a pattern or series of patterns. These patterns correlate to specific conditions or diseases. The goal of supplement use is to bring the animal body into a state of balance, relief and correction, so that health is maintained. 

Plant and marine based supplements contain natural plant chemicals which work systemically with our pet’s bodies and affect them at a cellular level, working synergistically to get to the root of the condition or disease. Our pets need all-natural supplements in their diets just like we do.  

Without supplementation, our pets are often deficient in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, alkaloids and amino acids; making them more susceptible to disease and degeneration. 

You will feel good about giving your pet products that benefit health and repair the body from inside out.  (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

How are herbs and supplements different than synthetic medications?

Our focus on natural products instead of synthetic options is deeply embedded in the practice of holistic veterinarian care and traditional medical systems. Natural products can help treat the underlying conditions that cause the symptoms of disease rather than suppressing symptoms. Symptoms are an indication of illness; signs that your pet’s body is fighting to return to a state of balance. Suppressing symptoms often causes more serious symptoms to emerge. Natural medicine treats systemically and symptomatically to try to get at the root of the actual health problem. Natura Petz Orgnaics nutrient rich herbals, plant and marine extracts and supplements may help optimize your pet’s state of well-being today as well as may help lower the risk or delay the onset of disease. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

What is an animal health or nutritional supplement?

An animal health or nutritional supplement is a product intended to support maintenance of normal biological structure and function in animals and to help provide a complete and balanced diet for dogs, cats and horses. These types of products are typically manufactured in therapeutic dosages for animal health and wellness and include products that contain glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM and other plant and marine constituents. Nutritional supplements typically contain oils, extracts, vitamins and minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and digestive enzymes and are also used to support animal health and wellness and potential disease mediation. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

How soon will my pet notice benefits from using supplements?

Herbals and supplements work differently than synthetic medications and usually require more time to work because they cleanse, nourish and regenerate your pet’s body and tend to work systemically rather than only symptomatically. 

Typically your pet should experience results from most herbals within a few weeks of use, and with more pronounced effects realized around 4-6 weeks. 

For many diseases and conditions, it is recommended that your pet use the products between 8-12 weeks to fully experience long term benefits. 

For chronic diseases and conditions such as Degenerative Joint Disease or Lyme disease, supplement use may be ongoing.  

Blood is the foundation of your pet’s health and determines the quality of its cells, hormones, tissues and organs. Our products are concentrated with whole food ingredients and have the ability to quickly provide nutrients for building blood, to help improve lymphatic drainage and help encourage toxin elimination from the blood.

It normally takes 10-14 days for blood plasma to recycle, so some improvements may be visible within that time. White blood cells typically renew between 30-60 days, so immune function usually begins to improve after 30 days.

On average, it takes 120 days for red blood cells to be renewed, so after 120 days, a more significant restorative and regenerative change may be noticed.

(* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Can my pet use Natura Petz Organics herb formulas every day?

Most of our formulas function as tonics, detoxifiers and reparative agents, and can be used daily. Some herbs are meant to be used on a short term remedial basis, whereas others can be used long term as well as used daily. For products that are meant to be used on a short term, or more remedial basis, we list that information on the product page.

Some products are separated by age, breed and type of animal and our products are split into 5 categories: All Life Stage (ALS), Adult, Senior, Puppy and Kitten.

Please read each plant label for indications regarding use. You may also refer to our plant summaries for extensive information regarding each plant and marine product. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Could my pet experience a reaction to any of the products?

Occasionally, some products may lead your pet to experience what is referred to as by veterinarians as a “healing episode" or "healing crisis.” A healing crisis should not be viewed as a negative reaction and is a normal part of the healing cycle through plant, herbal amd marine products and supplemental use. 

When your pet begins experiencing a healing process, it is partially due to the positive stimulation  of the body’s metabolic rate, which encourages toxin elimination, and is sometimes associated with fatigue, stiff and aching joints, and eye and nose draining and may even provoke hot spots, in the body's attempt to eliminate toxins. These reactions indicate that toxin elimination has begun from congested tissue and is a healthy and normal result of the detoxifying and purifying nature of herbals and supplements.  

In herbal regimens such as Lyme disease, you may want to discontinue administering products for a few days if your pet experiences a healing crisis, to allow normal microbial die off, and then resume at half dosage for a week. As your pet’s body acclimaties to the regimen, you may increase up to the recommended dosage. 

Your pet is less likely to experience these types of symptoms if you first start your pet with a detoxifying starter pack, such as our product Shake Ur Groove Thing, which contains plant products that synergistically flush out toxins from the liver, kidneys, tissues, and cell linings, and then after detoxification, it is recommended that you introduce a reparative herbal into your pet’s health regimen for optimal results, such as Love Your Liver or Hepa Protect. 

If your pet begins a healing regimen, be certain to supplement your dog or cat’s diet with additional water (filtered, fresh water is recommended daily) as well as plan for more bathroom breaks, to help rebuild the immune system and eliminate waste and toxins. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

How can my pet get the most benefits from supplement use?

Encourage your pet to drink plenty of filtered, fresh, water daily and eat a balanced, species appropriate diet. When possible, avoid processed foods. Water is essential for every function of your pet’s body. It helps transport nutrients and waste products in and out of cells and is necessary for all absorption, circulatory, excretory and digestive functions. Fresh, filtered, clean water daily also helps your pet utilize water-soluble vitamins and nutrients derived from supplements. Water also helps maintain body temperature and electrolyte balance, which is essential in healing and reparative regimens and is particularly important for aging or immuno-compromised dogs and cats.  

Like humans, exercise can mobilize our pet’s natural killer cells, which seek out and destroy irregular cells that are often linked to cancer cells and cells infected by viruses, allergens and pathogens. Exercise also increases oxygen in the blood and can help reduce stress in our pets. Stress depletes the immune system, so keep you and your pet moving for better health.* (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Where do Natura Petz Organics products come from?

Our individual ingredients are sourced from Peru, a country so rich in marine and plant biodiversity, that many of our supplements are found nowhere else on earth! Natura Petz Organics manufactures 100 percent pure, all-natural products from the Amazon rainforests, the Andean Highland and Lowland mountains, and the Humboldt Current, part of the Pacific Ocean marine ecosystem. Combined, these natural sanctuaries represent the world’s largest and most sophisticated natural "pharmacies."

The Peruvian Amazon rain forests, Andean Highlands and Lowlands benefit from superior soil quality and optimal growing conditions (drainage to the soil, sun and rain patterns, lack of pollution, etc.)  (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

How are our plants grown?

Our plants are grown in their organic state and are grown sustainably and wild harvested and processed without the use of pesticides, fumigation, genetically modified organisms, synthetic fertilizers, or ionizing radiation. Each supplement we manufacture retains the highest level of unaltered active plant chemicals possible, resulting in an absolutely natural product free of synthetic chemicals, fillers and preservatives. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Are Natura Petz Orgnaics products safe?

Our supplements are sourced from ethical, certified growers and every batch is tested to ensure purity, authenticity, and safety for your pet. Our supplements are part of a complete, traditional medical system, and have been thoroughly researched. We proudly bear the highest industry certifications granted. We take an uncompromising approach in providing products with the highest efficacy, safety and superiority, and in serving our customers and their animals with integrity. We give our products to our own pets and view them as medicinal “toolboxes” for natural animal wellness. 

Also, our products are manufactured according to the highest standardized (non alcohol) and scientific formulations, and has been especially created in dosages to safely and effectively help to address a range of conditions, including arthritis, muscle and joint support, allergies and itching, skin and coat support, wound healing and hot spot treatment, anxiety, emotional distress, as well as specialty adjunctive regimens related to UTI and bladder infections, liver and kidney dysfunction, adrenal, digestive and circulatory support, breed specific issues, flea and parasite relief, respiratory support, energy support, senior and convalescing animal support, and debility and other age-related products. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Can Natura Petz Organics products be used together?

All of our formulas are natural and synergistic in nature. In most cases, your pet can use capsules and liquids together interchangeably. Liquid formulas can be mixed together in drinks or added to food. Capsules and flavored powders can be taken orally or opened and sprinkled or mixed into food. 

How do we manufacture our products? 

Every batch of herbs that we use to make our pet formulas is tested to ensure purity, authenticity, and safety. From the soil our herbs are grown in to our finished bottled products, we monitor every step of the process, using only certified, ethical growers, abiding by the most stringent testing and manufacturing guidelines in the world. 

To ensure that only the most authentic herbs and supplements go into Natura Petz Organics blends, all raw materials used in production are subjected to a battery of tests including Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC), a sophisticated means of identifying the makeup of individual substances in a given compound. This unique fingerprint confirms the chemical composition and authenticity of each and every herb we use and allows us to use only the most high-quality herbs available. 

Our supplements undergo an additional analysis, called High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), a test performed on all pharmaceuticals to confirm the consistency and concentration of the compound. This step assures that each herb is at its maximum potency and effectiveness. 

Further testing for moisture content, dissolution, heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium) and microbial content are performed on every batch, including Aristolochic Acid and Chloramphenicol testing, guaranteeing that all herbal blends meets the absolute highest standards for purity and safety. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Why is whole food supplementation preferred over standard vitamin and mineral supplementation?

The key benefit of whole-food supplementation is that our pet’s bodies are designed by nature to extract nutrients from natural whole-food complexes. Natura Petz Organics products are made from a wide variety of natural, whole foods that are enhanced through our superior preparation techniques. This technique preserves 100% of the vitamin and mineral complexes, trace elements, synergistic factors, and enzymes in their complete, bioactive, and health promoting forms. 

Natural forms of vitamins may lose up to ninety per cent of their potency when separated from their natural synergists and as a result, some manufacturers sell products at unnaturally high quantities. Simply put, potency and efficacy have more to do with quality than quantity. 

When foods are processed to retain their natural, unadulterated and bioactive compounds, their ability to be absorbed and metabolized is markedly enhanced. Whole food, nutrient-dense supplements devoid of synthetic fillers, chemical additives and preservatives provide a superior ability to nourish all bodily systems as a whole, with nothing more and nothing less than nature intended. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

What if my dog/cat won't eat the powder?

Though most single and multi-blend herbs are very palatable when mixed during mealtime, occasionally dogs and cats are hesitant to eat the supplements because of the unfamiliar taste and smell. 

If a dog or cat is hesitant, simply try adding a pinch of the capsule or tablet powder during mealtime to gradually acquaint them with the blend. Slowly increase the amount given each day until they eat a full dose without hesitation. 

Alternatively, you can mix supplements with cheese, lunch meat (with no nitrates or salt added please), applesauce, yogurt, cottage cheese or any other dense or moist food. . (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

What is the significance of the Peruvian Amazon Rain Forests, Andean Highlands and Lowlands and Pacific Ocean?

The significance of the Amazon cannot be overemphasized. The Amazon represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests and comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world. The Amazon is estimated to have been in existence for at least 55 million years. The Amazonian rainforests have unparalleled biodiversity, with 1 in 10 known species in the world living in the Amazon Rainforest, constituting the largest collection of living plants and animal species in the world. 

The diversity of plant species is the highest on Earth with some experts estimating that one square kilometer containing over 75,000 types of trees and 150,000 species of higher plants. One square kilometer of Amazon rainforest can contain about 90,790 tons of living plants. To date, an estimated 438,000 species of plants of economic and social interest have been registered with many more remaining to be discovered or catalogued. 

Additionally, the ideal climate and pristine soil conditions represented in the Peruvian Highlands and Lowlands produce pure, organic herbal medicines that compliment and benefit the plants found in the Amazon. 

Further, Peru is benefited by the Humboldt Current, which feeds into the Pacific Ocean, and represents the greatest marine biodiversity on the planet and as a result, produces some of the most nutrient-rich marine product available. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Natura Petz Organics industry affiliations

Natura Petz Organics is a member of U.S. herbal manufacturing and natural products industries, in addition to many international natural product associations and consortiums and we are proud to represent the following groups plus many more: 

Are Natura Petz Organics products sustainable?

Lots of companies talk about sustainable business practices. At Natura Petz Organics, sustainability extends far beyond reusing and recycling. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our mission, philosophy and operations. Much of the herbal supplement and nutrition industries are driven by consumerism. 

Also, much of the herbal supplement and nutrition industry relies on non-organic farming and non-sustainable harvesting practices. As a result, many plants labeled as medicinal are adulterated with trace pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.  Despite our best efforts, our pets are exposed to excessive environmental toxins commonly found in water, food and the air. 

Natura Petz Organics works only with certified and ethical growers and harvesters who respect the plant and marine life that comprises our products. Because our products are solely produced in Peru, we validate that only ecological cultivation and harvesting methods are used in our production and have the certifications to prove what we say is true.

Natura Petz Organics products may not only help support optimal health for all bodily systems, but also include what nature has created in perfection; detoxifying, cleansing and balancing natural plant and marine chemicals that keep the good stuff in and filter the bad stuff out. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

What are plant life cycles and carbon foot prints?

In all natural ecosystems, there are plant and marine lifecycles that define the amount of products available for use without compromising ecological balance. Most companies do not consider the balance of plant life cycles and in many cases, native plants have been threatened due to lack of vigilance in growing and harvesting techniques. 

We can’t take more from nature than what it can naturally renew and support. Natura Petz Organics only works with ethical, certified growers who possess multi-generational knowledge and expertise in ecological cultivation and harvesting methods. We not only limit our carbon foot print, we do not take a step beyond what nature can support.  (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Is Natura Petz Organics involved in international research?

We also collaborate with global organizations that are firmly dedicated to protecting our vital natural resources within the plant and marine kingdoms and educating consumers about true sustainable sourcing and harvesting techniques. 

We hope we have helped you to better understand our company philosophies toward animal health and wellness. If you have a question you do not find answered here,
