4. What does Skin and Coat Tonic contain?

Skin & Coat Tonic contains the following 100% natural ingredients:

  • Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) has been widely used in Western and Chinese herbalism for many centuries. This herb is an effective tissue tonic due to its high silica content. Silica is essential in the maintenance of healthy skin, bones, claws, and fur. It is the main component in all connective body tissues, including the myelin sheaths around nerve cells and the membranes of the brain and spinal cord. It also contains health promoting compounds called sterols (D'Agostino, M., Dini, A., Pizza, C., Senatore, F., and Aquino, R. "Sterols from Equisetum arvense." Boll.Soc Ital.Biol Sper. 12-30-1984; 60(12):2241-2245.)
  • Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis) is also a source of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, D, C, various B Vitamins, iron, lecithin, silicon, potassium, magnesium, zinc and manganese. It has also been researched for its ability to soothe the skin. (Schutz, K., Carle, R., and Schieber, A. "Taraxacum--a review on its phytochemical and pharmacological profile." J Ethnopharmacol 10-11-2006;107(3):313-323.)
  • Spirulina (Arthrospira platenis) is a single celled micro-organism found in the sea and is widely used as a source of chlorophyll. Widely used for its nutritive properties, Spirulina contains protein, vitamins (including B12 and folic acid) and carotenoids. This sea algae has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years as a tonic to support energy, immune system and liver functioning, as well as all round systemic health.
  • Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis) is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. As a source of iodine, it supports the production of thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining healthy metabolism in all cells of the body. Regular use will also support skin and coat condition via healthy thyroid functioning.
  • Kali Sulph is a biochemic tissue salt that is essential for distributing life giving oxygen throughout the body and keeping cell membranes in peak health. Kali sulph also helps to maintain health and balance in the skin and underlying tissue.
  • Lactose (inactive ingredient)

12. What else can I do to help my pet?

  • Brushing your pet's coat regularly will stimulate the release of protective oils, keep your pet's coat healthy and encourage blood flow to the skin.

  • Talk to a holistic vet before immunizing your pet. Over-vaccination may cause unnecessary stimulation of the immune system which can cause problems especially in the long-term.

  • Avoid exposure to toxins and chemicals as much as possible including pesticides, herbicides, commercial flea collars, flea powder, insecticides and second-hand cigarette smoke. These can contribute to and cause skin irritations.

  • If your pet has chronic skin problems, try changing the brand of shampoo used.

  • Embark on a good flea prevention program. Fleas are an external source of skin irritation and may aggravate an underlying skin problem.

  • A tablespoon or two of olive oil added to the food a few times a week can help improve skin and coat health.

  • Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food (preferably organic).

  • Use Immunity and Liver Support capsules to boost your pet's immune functioning and resistance against disease and infection

  • Filtered or bottled water is preferable to chlorinated or fluorinated water.

  • Use food and water bowls that are made of glass, stainless steel or porcelain

  • Regular exercise will help to keep your pet healthy and fit.
