Wholesome Hearts Low-Fat Dog
Treats are all-natural, low-fat
dog treats with high quality proteins and
harvest-fresh fruits, vegetables and multi-grains.
And they are fortified with L-Carnitine for a
healthy heart and fat metabolism, making them
perfect for dogs that could stand to shed a few
pounds. Wholesome Hearts contain sliced apples,
squash, yellow field peas, tomatoes, cloves (which
have extremely high antioxidant values),
cranberries, pumpkin, ginger and nutmeg. The rice
germ/bran included in this recipe has been studied
at the University of Illinois for its ability to
support immune system functioning and skin and coat
health, and is chock full of protein and B vitamins.
Some of HealthyPetNet’s treats are formulated to
help promote the health of a specific part of your
pet’s body. Healthy teeth and gums are an important
consideration for your dog’s overall health – if a
tooth is loose due to tartar and plaque, bacteria
can enter the bloodstream and enter the heart and/or
kidney, with health consequences. It is always
a good idea to brush your dog’s teeth, but sometimes
that is not always possible.
Gourmet Dental Treats for Dogs
contain a variety of whole grains and protein, and
calcium and phosphorous for strong bones and teeth.
And, the parsley in these treats freshens your dog’s
breath right away.
At HealthyPetNet, we strive to provide treats that
provide crucial nutrients without adding any
chemical preservatives, artificial colors or
flavors, fillers or “leftovers”. Our baked treats
are made in a bakery in small batches, so your dog
will always enjoy the freshest snacks possible.
So give your dogs something that they’ll not only
enjoy, but will contribute to their long-term health
as well. Visit the
of our web site to find out about our other
nutritious lines of healthy treats.
A Japanese company has
developed a patch that, when applied to a cat or
dog’s paw, will reveal whether or not they are
stressed. It may sound too good to be true, but the
folks at Life Care Giken contend that the degree of
detectable perspiration is a clear indicator of the
level of stress a companion animal feels. In a
matter of mere minutes after applying the patch, pet
parents will find one of three results: lightly
stressed, heavily stressed or relaxed. The company
also markets skin tests for humans too, including
one that checks stress levels, and even one that
claims to check your alcohol tolerance!
Vitamin E refers to chemical compounds that are
classified in two groups: tocopherols and
tocotrienols. These compounds are widely known for
their antioxidant properties.
In a recent study by the University of Louisiana at
Monroe, researchers found that some of Vitamin E’s
protective effects are not tied just to their
antioxidant power. One of the most compelling
results involved the therapeutic use of these
compounds to fight cancerous cells.
The study showed that Vitamin E was potent in
activating the mechanism of cell death (apoptosis)
in cancer cells, but it did not cause the same
effect on normal, healthy cells. Preliminary
findings also indicate that Vitamin E may make
cancerous cells more susceptible to chemotherapy.
Researchers hope that Vitamin E will play a more
prominent roll in the treatment of cancer in the
