Without exception there is always a cause to every health issue. Determining and removing the cause is the key to good health and should be what pet owners focus on to improve the health of their animal companions. Identifying and removing the cause is the heart of naturopathic care.
Just like prescription drugs, many natural supplements only suppress symptoms. Supplements and remedies can be used to support the animal in it's healing efforts. After all it is the actual organism - when it has all the resources it needs that will heal itself. Healing comes from within. This is the way nature has designed all living creatures...with an intrinsic ability to heal.
External influences can either assist or hinder the bodies ability to heal.
First things first, make sure your animal's lifestyle is appropriate for their species. Second, give supplements that will support that animal's individual needs if necessary.
