What is Respo-K?
Respo-K is the premium homeopathic cold medicine for your cat or dog. It is a safe and effective, non-addictive, natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients especially selected to temporarily relieve cold symptoms in your pets. Formulated by our team of experts in natural medicine, Respo-K effectively relieves the symptoms of respiratory irritation and acts as a decongestant for cats and dogs.
Respiratory difficulties and colds can easily be transferred from pet to pet whether you’re in a multi-pet household or a single-pet household. Everyday occurrences, such as taking your dog to the dog park or your cat to the groomers, can result in your pet catching a cold and beginning to show symptoms almost immediately. Additionally, if he or she is showing signs of respiratory irritation or nasal discharge, those germs can be transferred between pet just by sharing the same toys or food bowls.
Discharge from the nose and eyes, congestion, lethargy and lack of appetite are some of the first symptoms to look out for before administering Respo-K, to ensure the entire household stays healthy.
A powerful homeopathic formulation for the discomfort associated with respiratory upset, Respo-K uses a unique, proprietary blend of highly diluted natural substances to help reduce frequent sneezing and watery eyes, as well as fits of coughing in both cats and dogs. Sambucus nig has a long history of providing successful relief for pets experiencing obstruction in the nose, hoarseness and mucus in the larynx.
However, our team of herbalists, naturopaths, homeopaths and responsible pharmacists know that a couple of ingredients do not provide a full solution. Therefore, we have created a unique blend of five scientifically selected ingredients that enable Respo-K to provide a natural, effective and safe choice for optimal lung functioning and easy breathing.
Respo-K also includes Ferrum Phos, a highly effective ingredient for congestion of the lungs, as well as Hepar sulph calc, which is especially useful for dry, hoarse or rattling coughs.
For more than 200 years, homeopathy has been used to provide relief for a broad array of symptoms from a number of health conditions (acute). It uses the premise of like-treats-like to help with this symptom relief, demonstrating that these natural ingredients can provide gentle relief for the same symptoms that at full-strength they cause.
Unlike conventional medicine, homeopathic remedies have no known side effects, no interactions with prescription medicine or herbal remedies, and no contraindications with pre-existing conditions.
Respo-K is presented in two convenient forms, tablets or spray, and either form may be taken depending on your pet's preference. Both forms are easy to administer without fussing or fighting. The tablets can be crushed and sprinkled on the tongue, dissolved in water or given as whole tablets, while the spray can be administered directly into your pet’s mouth or sprayed on their food or water.
AmazaPet™, our homeopathic medicine for wheezing and chest discomfort, is a great complementary remedy to Respo-K.

Respiratory health through systemic support
There are many ways in which respiratory health can be encouraged in dogs and cats. A pet should be given a healthy, balanced diet all year round, and unhealthy treats should be avoided.
Regular exercise will help to promote respiratory health in your pet. However, pets of advanced age should be allowed to rest and be given ample opportunity for quality sleep. Don't overexert a pet – especially if they don't quite seem themselves.
The natural way
Natural cold remedies for cats and dogs can help to support the health of the respiratory system, including the nose, throat and lungs, and promote a healthy immune system. Dog and cat congestion remedies have also been used for generations to encourage respiratory health and support the lungs and sinuses.
Dietary recommendations for optimal health and immune functioning:
- Many holistic vets will agree that the more raw food (as opposed to cooked meals or dried commercial pet food) the animal eats, the fewer general health problems there will be. Ideally, the best diet for a cat or dog is one which most closely resembles that which he would find in the wild.
- For cats, who are largely carnivorous, this should consist of mainly raw meat (minced beef and chicken, chicken livers) mixed with a little bone meal and a small amount of some grated carrot or finely chopped greens like spinach.
- Dogs will do well if more chopped and grated raw vegetables are added to their diets. We also recommend raw meat and raw bones for dogs, mixed with grated raw vegetables and chopped salads.
- A teaspoon or two of olive oil added to the meal every day (depending on size) will also be beneficial. Do not give your animals any milk at all – nor products containing sugar.
- Remember that you should not try to change your pet's diet overnight, especially if the animal is elderly. Slowly introduce new foods and allow the digestive system to become accustomed to the new diet.
