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. For the latest recalls, go to:

Dog Food Recalls or FDA website

SLO (Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy)—Impossible Veterinary Outcome

SLO (Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy) is thought to be an autoimmune disease where the body mistakenly attacks its own toe nails with antibodies. It can be very painful for the pet to walk, bleeding sometimes occurs, as the nails deteriorate and eventually come off. If the claws do regrow, they will be misshapen, dry, brittle and crumbly. Suspected causes are genetics, vaccinations, allergies, immune mediated origins and even hypothyroidism are a possibility. Treatment often includes antibiotics for any bacterial or fungal infections, steroids, Pentoxifylline and nutrition, such as Vitamin B, Vitamin E, biotin and Omega oils. SLO is considered a lifelong-illness, which may flair up at any time but is manageable with treatment.

While our clients have had a fair amount of success with other autoimmune conditions such as IMHA and AIHA, they have had more success with SLO. That may be because the anemia conditions, IMHA and AIHA, are so devastating that 50% of dogs die within two weeks of diagnosis. With SLO, the veterinarian has more time for testing in order to make an accurate diagnosis and the dog’s body has more time to allow medications and nutritional supplements to work. Here is one client’s case history:

Because the disease attacks the nails it unfolds over a period of time which felt very long and any effects of healing take even longer because of the slow growth of nails and any visual improvement. First, one nail pulled away from the quick and lifted up like the hood on a VW beetle. It was extremely painful and Tessa would cry out in pain if she tried to walk. Because she had gone through two TPLO surgeries for cruciate tears I, at first, assumed that was the problem. I kept trying to figure out the source of the pain and I found the lifted nail covering before her vet appointment. The vet numbed her nail bed, removed the nail covering, and found that 3 other nails had begun to separate from the core. The details become confused here but my vet recognized the condition and we talked about the potential prognosis. I was given no hope that it would actually go away because of it being an autoimmune disease. After two runs of heavy antibiotics she was just OK (she would not run, play or take walks) but she was feeling less pain until a new nail would begin to break away.

With her vet’s advice the client gave:

  1. Antibiotics

  2. Biotin

  3. Niacinamide

  4. High dosage Omega 3 & 6 oils

  5. LifeOne, an herbal supplement designed to enhance the immune system

After showing her vet BioPreparation's nutritional information, the vet gave her the go ahead to add it to what they were already doing. The client subsequently reported:

It took many months, actually a couple of years for it to all play out as nails came off over several months until every nail had come off and of course then they began to grow back in slowly and in the order they had come off. My poor girl was so uncomfortable and I felt powerless, wondering what her life would be like if this just kept happening. At first the new nails were thin and rippled and they just did not look healthy. None came off a second time. Over a year or two the nails got thicker, had a normal shape and eventually developed a "normal" looking texture. Each time we would go see the vet, she would shake her head in surprise but she stayed cautious that this might just be a remission or a good moment. The last time we went in and after the nails had been stable for over a year, her comment was that if she didn't know and hadn't seen the effects of the SLO she would never suspect Tessa had had this experience. I pray it is cured and every day I appreciate not seeing any problems. We stopped the antibiotics after two rounds. Once the nails came back in and began to look stronger we lessened the number of capsules she takes of the biotin, niacinamide and Omega 3/6 and I have her on one BioPreparation-f3+ twice a day. I hope I never have to experiment with this again to try to figure out what worked. I suspect it was either a combination or maybe even one product. I am thankful I found the BioPreparation-f3+. I can't prove that the BioPreparation-f3+ "cured" Tessa's SLO but something has happened that is/was totally unexpected and Tessa has been symptom free for at least 1.5 years.—MAP

We have seen the above scenario with IMHA, AIHA, SLO, Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and many other serious health challenges. This is not scientific proof of BioPreparation’s efficacy alone because the client did give the prescribed medications and isolated supplements. The addition of super nutrition from BioPreparation seems to be the key to allowing the body to get itself back into balance and on the road to full recovery. Because BioPreparation (and BioSuperfood) are whole superfood products that do not treat the symptoms, we may never have scientific proof for any one specific disease condition. That is what drugs and isolated supplements do, supplement the symptoms. Instead, BioPreparation and BioSuperfood supply over 5,000 individual nutrients, including antioxidants which are super nutrients for the brain. When the pituitary (master gland) pineal and hypothalamus in the brain are balanced and working in synergy, they will scan and regulate all the secondary glands, organs and body’s systems back to normal functions. This is the body/brain doing the healing and not the product, as with drugs and isolated supplements.

Another factor to consider is that research shows only 20-25% of isolated supplements’ nutritional benefits are absorbed and utilized by the body. This means you and your pet are pooping out the other 75-80% of the nutritional benefits and thus your money. With whole food products the absorption and utilization rate can be as high as 90-95 %. This is why symptoms frequently come back after the isolated supplement is discontinued. For proof, read our Vitamin C web page. When using whole food products (like our BioPreparation, BioSuperfood, ALPHA-G and Seacure) ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body are nourished and functionality may thus return to normal. A healthy, balanced body has no need for symptoms. Now that is true “wholistic” wellness towards Freedom From Illness.

So, if your current medication and isolated supplement protocol from your vet or doctor is not giving you all the benefits desired, please consider our "wholistic" whole superfood product approach. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will get the same results you already got.
