Are you prepared for the warm months?: ProHydra - tailored for horses!
When a horse is under extreme climatic conditions, the need to sweat may be affected violently.
ProHydra is developed to provide horses living in warm and humid conditions, with tailored nutrients. About 20% of the horses in Florida suffer from not being able to sweat at all or just sweat very little.
The disease is initially reduced sweating in humid and warm periods and is at that stage known as puff disease, because horses pant heavily, even after work has ceased The signs are very little, patchy or no sweat, elevated pulse and body temperature during work.
The condition can evolve into a cronic condition of no sweating called anhidrosis, dry coat syndrome or non-sweating disease.
The coat will then become flakey dandruff and may wanish completely. In periods where humidity and temperatures are high, the horse becomes lethargic distressed.
If the horse is not helped the condition can be life threatening and at the least invalidating.
If your horse has the above mentioned symptoms, is diagnosed with anhidrosis or the like, using ProHydra as a feed supplement will provide the necessary building blocks for the body to adjust to and cope with high temperature and humidity, improving temperature adjustment and regulation through improved sweating and breathing. ...

One of the world´s most loyal dogs, were born on this day, Nov. 10. 1923 in Japan, and was given the name “Hachiko”.
Every day, Hachiko went on his own to the train station, where he would pick up his owner, a male professor, when he returned from his day at work. One day, Hachiko´s owner died suddenly during a lecture at work, and never returned home.
Every day for the rest of his life, Hachiko returned to the train station, at the exact same time and spot, to wait for his owner. People in the area who knew and loved him brought him food, until his death nine years, nine months and 15 days later, on March 8. 1935, at the age of 11. Hachiko´s earthly remains got cremated, and laid to rest next to his beloved owner. Later on, a statue of him were placed at the train station.

If we pay attention to our dogs, they can tell us many things. They can tell us what food and nutrition they need and how much of it. This is the story of one of our customers- the shepherd lady Anja.
When Anja was 2 years old she began scratching herself. Soon she had numerous flushed and irritated spots on her skin. Her energy and vitality was low. She was repeatedly tested, many allergies were attested, numerous variants of food and medicine tried- but nothing helped her. At the age of 8, her owners considered putting her to sleep. They loved Anja so much who, additionally, now had a hip dysplasia and needed strong painkillers.
One day, her owner visited a dog show with Anja. Since she was too tired and exhausted to walk, they left her in the car with doors open to provide her with enough fresh air. When they came back, Anja was gone. The first thought was that someone had taken her. In panic they started looking around for her until they finally found the dog in front of a bucket at an exhibition stand. Anja had emptied all the food that had been in the bucket. What had happened?
Our dogs know exactly what they need in terms of nutrition. The problem is that they often do not get that from the food we give them. Therefore, for example, they eat horse droppings if they find it. Rather than grumble about it, we should pay attention. That day, Anja discovered what she lacked. And she took it despite her weaknesses and all obstacles. She discovered our product ViVet, which we had brought to our exhibition stand and it was obviously what she needed that moment. Astonished her owner started chatting with us and tried many of our products in the following months.
Anja was given a second chance and a second life. This was no rocket science! In fact, it is quite easy. The key lies in the species appropriate feeding- this is what we want to provide animals with. There is a reason for the behaviour of our animals. We just need to pay attention. ... See MoreSee Less
Hip dysplasia is a development disorder of where the hip, which leads to the femoral head, will no longer be able to fit in the hip socket. This leads to instability, improper lading of the weight to the link structure and deformity of the joints.
The condition is seen especially in large fast growing breeds. Many dogs, especially those with a mild version the disease may not show symptoms of hip dysplasia. The dogs that do show symptoms will typically wobble, and they will jump like rabbits whilst running. The dog will often try to sit down quicker and faster with short intervals to reduce the load off its hips. Lameness may occur in one or both legs. The dog will show signs of pain when getting up, going up the stairs or whilst jumping.
