Just like humans, domesticated animals like dogs and cats are affected by the health hazards of modern living. Pollution, poor nutrition, stress and unhealthy lifestyles can lead to a variety of illnesses and conditions that are very similar to those experienced by humans.

In fact, many, if not most pet health concerns can be addressed by helping your pets to live a healthier lifestyle. While it has its place, conventional medicine for animals and ‘modern technology’ have failed our pets in many ways.

According to pet expert and author CJ Puotinen, most holistic veterinarians and animal health care professions list annual vaccinations and commercial pet foods as the major contributory cause in the rising rates of chronic illness in pets today. This has led many veterinarians to search for alternatives and to espouse more holistic methods of keeping our pets healthy.

Natural remedies for humans have been used with great effect for the pets in the family. Therefore, how could  the need for remedies especially designed and formulated for pets, with pet friendly doses and remedies which could be easily administered to dogs and cats, be ignored?

Out of this obvious need was born PetAlive – a range of herbal, homeopathic and nutraceutical remedies to help with a variety of ailments commonly experienced by pets. Formulated by a clinical psychologist, all PetAlive remedies are pharmaceutically manufactured to the highest standards, are 100% guaranteed, safe and effective to help your pet battle common illnesses and ailments and maintain optimum health.
