The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is — STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is
with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower
percentage of recalls.

Every feline pet parent knows what a challenge
it is to get a pill, whether a vitamin supplement or drug, into their
cat (or small finicky dog).
If you are lucky enough to have a product that is somewhat palatable to
a cat, here are some of the suggestions we have used and collected from
our clients on how to pill a cat.
Insert a small pill into the back of a
cat’s mouth. Hold the cat’s mouth shut and stroke the front of their
throat until they swallow it. We do this with our tiny Moxxor Omega oil capsules. Regular fish
oil capsules are just too big and
not the best source for Essential Fatty Acids (Omega oils)
anyway. See our
October, 2015, newsletter article on why.
For larger pills crush the pill into a
powder using a
and pestle. Always start by adding just a pinch of powder per meal and
hold that amount for 3-5 days. If this amount is accepted, then
increase by one additional pinch per meal every 3-5 days thereafter. You can
mix the powder into any wet food in two ways:
a. Drop several small dots of powder on the food. Now cover up the
dots (without mixing) with more wet food.
b. Some pets like the powder mixed thoroughly in their food so that
the mixture is homogeneous and they cannot see or smell anything
foreign in their food.
Try encapsulating the powder in ground
meat, soft bread, cheese, cottage cheese or any soft food.
Mix the powder in softened butter or milk.
Pet stores now carry a product called Pill
Pockets that one can put the powder or small pill in.
One can buy smaller #3 or #4 size capsules
and transfer the powder (BioPreparation comes in larger #2 size
capsules) into for pilling.
Mix just enough water to make a paste with
the powder and smear it with a finger in the cat’s mouth.
If all the above fails, one can always mix
the powder in water and squirt it with a syringe or eye dropper
several times per day.
Remember, for optimum results, it is best to
spread the total daily amount of powder equally over the entire day. For
example, for one capsule per day give ½-capsule in the morning and ½-capsule at night. For even better results, feed four ¼-capsule amounts
Tips on Using Partial Capsules
Here are some hints on opening up capsules to
sprinkle the powder on cat’s food:
Make sure your hands are clean and DRY. If
the product is in a capsule, twist the two halves of the capsule to
break the heat seal.
Now gently separate the two halves of the
capsule by holding the long end at the bottom and pull the short end
of the capsule off the top. The short half will contain
approximately ¼-capsule while the long half will contain ¾-capsule.
Now rotate one of the capsule parts ¼
turn until just a pinch of powder falls onto any wet food. Mix as
mentioned above in Step 2 (a. or b.) of the above list.
Gently put the two halves of the capsule
back together for later usage.
Store the partially used capsule in a
candy dish, bottle cap or tiny pill container for later use.
If some of the powder sticks to an ‘empty’
capsule at the end of usage, leave the two halves of the capsule
together but leave the whole capsule out at room temperature in a
suitable container for at
least 24 hours. After 24 hours, open up the two halves of the
capsule and knock together, pointing the open ends downward to
release the remaining powder in the capsule parts.
