Nzymes Neurological Support Program for Dogs
Purpose of the Neurological Support Program for Dogs
The Nzymes Neurological Support Program for Dogs is designed to help you get off to a good start for your pet who is struggling with such issues. This page is to provide guidance for using Nzymes products; to make recommendations on better food/snack choices; and to help you find natural alternatives for flea/tick/parasite control.
Our Goal is to help you achieve the success you are looking for. Much of that will have to do with the products. Some of that will have to do with the other recommendations we are making in this program. And some of that will come down to the individual animal. By following these protocols, many pets have returned robust health, and improved daily functioning. Even though these recommendations are common sense based, and very straight forward, nothing carries a 100% certainty.
Seizures in dogs can come from a variety of causes. Most are considered idiopathic, in other words, they just happen. Some however spawn from a genetic factor, a birth defect, or a tumor. Still others may occur due to trauma – an accident or injury. Even for these very difficult cases, this program stands a reasonable chance to make a positive impact in the life of the pet.
Toxins & Seizures
We feel the largest contributors to seizures in dogs is due to Toxic Build-up. The FOCUS of this program is to take every possible step to reduce the toxic load on the pet. “Idiopathic” may be the label, the there is always a REASON for the seizures to occur with the dog. This avenue is not often explored by vets, as they are more apt to prescribe an anti-convulsant.
Getting Started with Nzymes
The key to understanding the Nzymes products is simple. They are providing rich elements to the diet that your pet cannot get from his food alone. The Live-Food Nutrition in our Antioxidant products enable your pet to manufacture a whole series of enzymes. It is those enzymes that flush toxins from the cells. The Trace minerals/Amino acids are involved in cellular replication and regeneration. They also supply bio-electric energy for the body’s electrical system. Combined, they provide dynamic support for neurological health.
1. How to Use Your Nzymes Products for Best Results
Whether you are using the Neurologic Support Kit for Dogs, the Antioxidant Treats for Pets or the Sprouted Granules, consistency is a key to success. Be sure to give the products to your pet every day as directed. Recommended usages are provided on the packaging. In the case of the Treats or the Granules, we generally recommend doubling the product usage for the first two weeks. This is to get the product going in your dog more quickly.
Note: If your dog has a sensitive stomach, then you may need to introduce the products more slowly to avoid vomiting or diarrhea. In time, you can slowly increase to normal daily amounts.
Neurologic Support Kit for Dogs
The purpose of this special kit is to provide the ultimate in nutritional support for neurological issues. It combines 2 bottles of our Antioxidant Treats and a bottle or our Tracite Minerals.
In addition to missing the live enzymes from the foods, most dogs are also faced with mineral deficiency. Even the best pet foods cannot supply the valence of mineral content found in the Tracite. Commonly prescribed anti-convulsants strip vitamin and mineral content even further. These are vital building blocks your pet’s body needs for daily demands. Trace minerals/aminos are involved in all cellular regeneration and synthesis.
The Tracite Minerals are given twice daily, and can be added to your pet’s food or given via the Oral Syringe. To use the syringe, add 3-5 cc’s of water to the tube, add the proper amount of drops (per label) and release along the teeth line.
The Treats can be given by hand or crushed and added to the food twice daily.
Antioxidant Treats for Pets
The Antioxidant Treats are our most popular item, and have been used to support a wide variety of pet health issues. This is due to the simple fact that antioxidant enzymes are at the forefront of cellular function, and so touch on many aspects of health.
The Treats start with our Super-Food protein as the primary ingredient. We add to this Rice Bran, which carries a natural source of B Vitamins. The treats are enhanced with antioxidant Vitamins A, C, & E, and the important mineral, Selenium. Lastly, defatted Beef Liver is added both for flavor, and as a rich protein source.
These tasty treats are easy to give, and are ideal for a pet who may be down, and not eating regularly. Follow the weight chart on the side of your bottle to determine the regular daily usage. For most cases, we recommend doubling the daily intake for the first 2 weeks.
Nzymes Sprouted Granules 1 & 2 lbs
The Sprouted Granules are the primary ingredient in all of our Antioxidant products and are made available in a raw, bulk form. It is the Granules that provide the Super-Food nutrition to the products. This raw form make them ideal for pets of all shapes and sizes. The Granules are also the economical choice for multi-pet families.
Even though they may seem plain, they are packed with powerful nutritional properties, and are very supportive of neurological health. The Granules are added to the food daily via teaspoon. Simply follow the weight chart on the side of the package to determine the proper usage for your pet. We recommend doubling the normal, daily usage for the first two weeks.
The Sprouted Granules are available in both 1 and 2 lb sizes.
Footnote: Both the Antioxidant Treats and the Sprouted Granules are whole-food items, and may be safely doubled for as long as necessary. Dogs who are older, or more compromised often require the extra support.
2. Avoiding Problem Foods and Snacks
When it comes to seizure/neurologic activity in dogs, some of the key contributing factors can be the ingredients found in main-line pet foods and snacks. Yet customer feed-back has demonstrated that vets rarely explore this avenue or suggest that there is any connection between particular foods/snacks and the condition. This could be due to their training being more focused on medications and procedures than on nutrition.
The BIG Problem with Main-Line Pet Foods – These foods are commonly treated with preservatives, additives, artificial colors & artificial flavors. They contain by-products, high-starch carbohydrates and low quality vitamins and minerals. Feed stock are often fed with antibiotics, growth hormones, and are hatched and raised in cages. Salmon are often farm-raised in ponds amidst their own excrement. Are you beginning to see the picture?
Wheat flour and wheat gluten are often found in their ingredients, and are HUGE no-no’s for seizure pets. Do you suppose the source ingredients they use are Non-GMO or Glyphosate free? Most likely not. It is simply not the nature of the industry.
Ask yourself, “What is the #1 thing going into my dog every single day?” It’s the food. What you are feeding to your dog are the materials with which he must replenish his body day by day. There is NO substitute for quality ingredients. This goes for pet foods, snacks, chew-bones, and dental sticks.
Feeding a Quality food is essential. We have a page on our site called Foods Recommended by Nzymes. We have no relationship with any of these Food companies. If they meet our criteria, we will list them. Here’s what we are looking for in a Quality Pet Food:
- Human Grade Ingredients
- Meat Based
- Naturally Preserved
- Sequestered or Chelated Vitamins and Minerals
- Utilizes Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes
- Avoids High-Glycemic Carbohydrates (low-sugar)
On our Foods page, we list kibble, canned, freeze-dried and raw. We also list snacks that are OK to use. At the bottom of the page, we list foods that are OK to give and foods to avoid (from the table)
We CANNOT stress enough how important it is to feed a quality food. This is doubly important for any pet facing a neurologic issue.
3. Natural Remedies for Fleas, Ticks & Worms
The next most critical thing to get under control is Parasite Prevention. The transdermal liquid you drop between your dog’s shoulder blades, or the monthly pill you poke down his neck, are actually low-dose poisons. They don’t “repel” fleas. The fleas die when they feast on the poisoned blood of your dog. The same goes for ticks. How would that prevent a tick-bourn illness, like Lyme? The tick must still bite your dog to get his lethal dose.
For dogs with seizures, the last thing they need is another poison to deal with. These items are neurotoxins, and seizures are noted as possible side effects. This is not something you would want to continue to use.
There are natural alternatives. One popular choice is “Bug-Off Garlic” from Springtime. Please click the link in the photo for more information and on some personal experiences with the product.
The Nzymes Tincture of Blackleaf contains Black Walnut properties derived from the husk. Black Walnut has shown to be a natural repellant to parasites of all types.
In Conclusion, These Steps are Removing Stressors from Your Dog
Following the steps outlined above can go a long way towards unloading the weights bearing down on your pet’s system, and pushing back on the threshold of neurologic events. Each step listed here is important. The Nzymes products can play a very important role, but the other steps also lighten the load on the system.
Used together, these 3 steps have helped 1000’s of pets regain healthy functioning. As stated earlier, nothing is 100% certain regarding outcomes, but you have 100% of our support. Please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org ; 877-816-6500
NOTE: Using This Program While Under Medications or Other Natural Remedies
If Your Dog is Currently Taking Medications
The Nzymes products are 100% natural and whole-food based. As such, they do not conflict with medications. Many of our customers start out with us at this point. We DO NOT recommend discontinuing the medications. Any changes should be made under the direction of the prescribing Vet. Since the Nzymes will naturally detoxify the body, it is a good idea to start more slowly, at 1/2 recommended usage, and then gradually increase to the normal recommendations for use.
In time, if your dog is going weeks or months episode free, we suggest consulting with your vet about the possibility of decreasing the medications. The goal would be to eventually stop them altogether, if possible. It is always best to work with your vet so that he/she is aware of your pet’s progress and vitals.
If Your Dog is Already Using Natural Remedies
There are a good many natural products out there these days that can be quite supportive of neurological conditions in pets. These would include Omega-3, Mushrooms, Turmeric and others. We are often asked if the Nzymes can be used along with these other natural products. The answer is Yes. Just like with medications, the Nzymes are all-natural, and will not conflict with these other natural aids.
