Because of our low, mail order, Internet prices and the amazing demand for our "wholistic" consulting and revolutionary products, we limit every inquiry (e-mail and telephone) to 15 minutes in order to help all those in need. After the first 15 minutes we charge our normal consulting fee. Please make use of all the free resources available 24 hours/day, by clicking on the buttons in the left-hand menu of every product page (Ingredients, Usage, FAQ, etc.). Thank you in advance.


Pet Food Recalls

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.

How to Pill a Cat

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.

  1. 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.

  2. For larger pills crush the pill into a powder using a mortar 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.

  3. Try encapsulating the powder in ground meat, soft bread, cheese, cottage cheese or any soft food.

  4. Mix the powder in softened butter or milk.

  5. Pet stores now carry a product called Pill Pockets that one can put the powder or small pill in.

  6. One can buy smaller #3 or #4 size capsules and transfer the powder (BioPreparation comes in larger #2 size capsules) into for pilling.

  7. Mix just enough water to make a paste with the powder and smear it with a finger in the cat’s mouth.

  8. 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 per day.

Tips on Using Partial Capsules

Here are some hints on opening up capsules to sprinkle the powder on cat’s food:

  1. 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.BioPreparation

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Gently put the two halves of the capsule back together for later usage.

  5. Store the partially used capsule in a candy dish, bottle cap or tiny pill container for later use.

  6. 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.
