As fall approaches, soon it will be the time to expect increased shedding. Summer coats will be shed to accommodate the heavy protective fur for the colder months. While your companion animal’s coat always requires high-quality nutrition, this is especially true during these months of change.

For all of the hair support systems to function properly, they require a variety of nutrients, including fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and a great deal of protein – and lots of it! In fact, at optimum nutrition levels, almost 95% of the protein that’s ingested by your pet is used to support hair production and maintenance. Nutritious foods like Life’s Abundance and Instinctive Choice help to provide the protein content necessary to help maintain a healthy coat.

Just as it is important to feed a high-quality, nutrient-dense food, it is also advisable to give your companion animals a balanced supplement that provides the additional nutritional support necessary to achieve the utmost in a healthy coat and skin.

What should you look for in a skin and coat supplement? First, you should make certain the supplement is made by a reputable company – preferably a member of the NASC (a national association that regulates the quality of supplements). Secondly, review the list of ingredients – it should contain ample oils, but not from a single source (like all fish oil or solely vegetable oil). Oils come in several forms and not all are well-suited for companion animals. Liquid oil in a pump dispenser is not recommended because it can turn rancid quickly. Many find that capsules are difficult to give to their pets. Along with the necessary oils, the supplements should contain a spectrum of vitamins for proper nutrition. Lastly, but equally important, the supplements must taste good to your pets.

HealthyPetNet’s Skin & Coat Formula is a unique formula that provides a perfect balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These oils are certified-free of contaminants and are microencapsulated to increase absorption, so your pet receives the full nutritional benefit. Additionally, Skin & Coat Formula contains Vitamins A, D and E, all of which are necessary for the maintenance of healthy skin and a glossy coat. Skin & Coat is manufactured in a human pharmaceutical plant to ensure the highest product quality. And, it has a delicious roast beef flavor that both cats and dogs love.

No matter the season, HealthyPetNet’s Skin & Coat Formula can help to make your pet’s coat healthy, glossy and beautiful – and keep it that way, all year long.






Hyperthyroidism has become a frequently diagnosed illness in cats in recent decades. And new research implicates an environmental source.

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE’s), chemicals used only in recent decades as a flame retardant, have been shown in research to cause injury to the feline nervous system, as well as interfere with the production of certain hormones. Scientists are concerned that these chemicals could also lead to similar symptoms in humans, too.

PBDE’s have now been phased out of commercial production, but many of the products that contain them, like fabrics, furniture, foams, some plastics and other items, are still in use.

This evidence suggests that if your cat is suffering from hyperthyroidism, it could be the result of an object in your home – one that could be removed, and possibly lessen the severity of the illness.

Once again, a new school year has begun. With busier school and activity schedules, it’s also the time when pet parents may find themselves with less time to spend with their companion animals. Here are some easy tips for making the most of the time that you do have:

• Set aside a few minutes in the morning to groom your dog or cat. While brushing or combing, talk about your upcoming day. If your pets don’t enjoy grooming, then just spend a few minutes petting them. Whatever your daily morning interaction, try to do it at same time and in the same place. Your companion will find comfort in the regimen – and so will you!
• If you have a dog, do something that he or she will enjoy after you return home from work, like a game of catch, hide-and-seek, or take a long walk. If you have cats, we recommend playing with a ball or using fishing poles with dangling feathers – your cat loves the chase!
• Incorporate teeth cleaning, ear cleaning and/or nail trimming into your new routine. Too often, these health necessities are viewed grudgingly as chores. Commit to making this time as pleasurable as possible, like time at the spa.
• Massage is a wonderful way to connect with your companion animals. Check out one of the many pet massage books currently on the market to help you develop your technique. There is evidence to suggest that massage can improve your pet’s health, and it will relax you as well.

Just remember – spending quality time with your companion animal can bring about dramatic changes in temperament, improving the bond you share with your pet and your overall quality of life.




According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, current estimates suggest that more than one-third of companion animals in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Many pet parents don’t realize that this excess weight also brings with it an increased threat of health problems.

Beginning an effective weight-loss program now will not only help them to feel better, but it’s also an excellent way to try and protect them from all-too-common conditions often linked with obesity, like hip and joint problems. HealthyPetNet is pleased to bring you a superior weight-loss product for dogs – Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula.

Our Weight-Loss Formula is made with whole foods like premium chicken and catfish meal, eggs, whole ground flax seed, oatmeal, stabilized rice bran (which contains more than 72 antioxidants), B vitamins, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, fresh veggies and much more. This incredible mix of ingredients works to support strong muscles, a healthy heart and digestive system, a strong immune system and overall wellness.

According to clinical trials, our Weight-Loss Formula resulted in successful weight loss, increased vitality, decreased hunger and healthier skin and shinier coats. And after your dog loses weight with the Weight-Loss Formula, there’s no need to revert to his or her regular food. Weight-Loss Formula is a complete food for dogs, and is especially recommended for breeds that have a tendency to gain weight, like Labradors, Golden Retrievers and Cocker Spaniels.

According to a new national ranking, obesity rates continue unchecked in the U.S. In fact, Mississippi became the first state to exceed 30% overall rate of obesity. Clearly, traditional methods for losing weight are not meeting the needs of Americans.

To this end, Life's Abandance is pleased to announce the development of a new dietary supplement to help people control their weight. Ultralogix Weight Control Formula naturally and effectively helps support a healthy weight-control program. It is an all-natural alternative to pharmaceutical-based products that can have unwanted side effects. This dietary supplement is extremely safe, with no potentially dangerous weight-loss ingredients.

This Ultralogix formula features PentaChrome™, a proprietary blend of five potent Chromium sources, which works to support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels. We’ve included Green Tea, an herbal antioxidant and an excellent source of catechin polyphenols, which help to increase energy levels. We’ve also included L-Carnitine, which is essential for the conversion of fat into energy that can be used by the body. Ultralogix Weight Control Formula also contains Serotain™, which the body effectively converts into Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood. And this potent formula incorporates Hydroxy Methyl Butyrate, a naturally-occurring amino acid that helps promote the growth of lean muscle mass and prevent muscle loss while dieting.*

This Ultralogix supplement is suitable for males and females aged 13 and up, and every bottle contains a one month supply of 90 tablets.

Using a safe and effective dietary supplement like Ultralogix Weight Control Formula can have a dramatic impact on the way you feel and look. For optimal results, you should incorporate exercise and eating a balanced diet along with taking Weight Control Formula.
