Long Hair Cat

Do you have long haired cat? Are you demoralized by inextricable knotting?

You know that there is a solution, and incidentally it’s the food.

No one has ever discovered the cause that makes this annoying but dangerous cluster of hair, I can assure you that I saw many cats stop having this problem by eliminating from their diet all the foods that contain meat derived from intensive farming, obviously first of all the various brand kibbles.

What makes these knots form? Simply an inflammation of the sebaceous gland, which puts abundant sebum secretions, that ends up becoming a great glue.
It can only be eliminated through careful use of scissors.
If you cut the knots and change to food to one that uses fish from the sea as its protein, you will see that in most cases, the problem will not reappear, indeed, the hair will be shiny and smoother than you have ever seen, with no need for daily brushing.

If you like it, let me know how it worked for you!

Is Inflammation a Body Healing Process?

Conventional medicine tends to automatically seek to suppress symptoms during sickness, when inflammation is an indication of the body “repairing” itself.

When you take an anti-inflammatory drug, that natural defense response in the body is smothered, which seems to cause a continuation and increase in chronic and/or degenerative diseases.

In practice, inhibiting this natural response of the body to defend itself from illness or negative stimulus, we prevent and force the elimination of the defense system, causing the body to rebalance with an increase in chronic or degenerative diseases.

Consider this metaphor: City trash is eliminated by burning in an incinerator. While it removes the trash from the city, the burning itself creates new issues in generating smoke, heat, noise and toxic emissions. But if we “switch that off” by turning off the incinerator, have we really done the best thing? In that case, we leave the trash in the city and pollute the environment. Likewise, by switching off inflammation in the body with medicine, we still leave harmful toxins in the body.

If the stimulus of the disease persists, the body is forced into a state of chronic inflammation. It’s debilitating and painful, but effective (if the waste continues to be produced, the incinerator will obviously be forced to work continuously).

Anti-inflammatory drugs may be the only choice in some cases where it’s not possible to remove the cause of the inflammation, or when this is either unknown and/or unidentified.

Food intolerances, the field in which SANYpet is the undisputed leader, can cause their own inflammatory issues and/or increase in secretions and excretions. Such phenomena can affect any organ, as each individual has a different sensibility.
Where food intolerance exists, there can be acute inflammation every time that food is ingested. And, if that food is part of the daily diet, the inflammation will inevitably become chronic. If we fail to remove the cause, we cannot eliminate the effect.

In sum, it is important to determine what is causing inflammation in the body before initiating anti-inflammatory treatment.
Sometimes it’s best to let the body defenses operate naturally, so as not to create even more issues or further development of chronic or degenerative conditions.

Inflammation: An Enemy to Fight or an Ally to Respect?

It’s becoming more and more frequent to see various advertisements in the media (newspapers, magazines, television, and radio) inviting us to use anti-inflammatory, painkiller, and anti-diarrhea medications.

It is difficult to comprehend the scope at which the vast majority of doctors are prescribing these drugs for even the most mundane of processes. Obviously this mechanism has been influenced by pharmaceutical companies. The meaning of the medicine, the symptoms, and what happens in the body during a sickness has come to be completely misrepresented.

Is it a logical therapeutic practice to block a bodily process that forty million years of evolution has elaborated? Would it be logical to treat a muscle tear with an anti-inflammatory and immediately start running? Or would it be better to not strain the injury until it has healed?

No one disputes the effectiveness of these therapies and we see the result. People with a fever, pain, or constipation taking miraculous tablets and all of their symptoms quickly disappear. Society wants efficiency and our constant presence at all costs.

Do the effects of these drugs have consequences, and what could be the damage?

Although there is no immediate evidence, the systematic suffocation of the body’s natural responses leads to the continuation and increase of chronic and / or degenerative diseases. In practice, restraining the body from having a normal defensive response means preventing the complete elimination of the morbid stimulus. This forces the defense systems to elaborate a new balance, which is certainly less effective than the original, with inevitable movement from the acute and chronic towards degenerative diseases.

An analogy may clarify this concept: the elimination of a city’s waste happens by the contribution of an incinerator. When operated, the population is inconvenienced by smoke, heat, noises, and the nuisance of emissions.
Similarly, the pain, discomfort, and distress of inflammation are byproducts of a necessary process.

Do we really think that by turning off inflammations we are doing what’s best?

In the same way that turning off the incinerator would leave waste in the city to pollute the environment, turning off the inflammation with drugs leaves harmful toxins in the body. The situation is even worse if the pathological stimulus persists, because it forces the body to process a chronic inflammation.
This unpleasant process is disabling and painful, but the best and only way to manage a morbid stimulus. If the waste continues to be produced, the incinerator will be forced to work continuously. In this case, the administration of an anti-inflammatory would be even more fraught with possible consequences.

All of this obviously doesn’t mean that this category of drug needs to be demonized. However, it must be clear that their use is contrary to the natural laws of the body. To face a machine as enchantingly complex as a living being, requires our compliance.

The anti-inflammatory should be an exclusively selected drug for those cases in which it is impossible to remove the cause of the inflammation or when it’s either unknown, unidentifiable, or not treatable in the correct way.
Therefore, it should be used with extreme caution and an awareness of the effects that may result in the body.

Nutrition for Breeders

It is fundamentally important for breeders to provide proper nutrition, especially for the females.

The best pet foods are those containing proteins with a high biological value, are easily digestible, and do not come from intensive farming. Instead, source your proteins of fish, deer, and lamb from natural settings and it will have a positive impact on fertility and libido.

A poor quality of nutrition and lowered digestibility have negative effects on breeding: hypo fertility in both males and females, absent or silent values, false pregnancies, fewer puppies, fetal resorption, neonatal mortality, birth defects, low milk production, and poor quality and quantity of colostrum.

The most frequent clinical signs of an unfit breeding subject is muscle atrophy and excessive reduction of subcutaneous fat content. As an effective control, it’s useful to use the BCS (Body Condition Score) to assess the body condition of subjects. A complete and balanced nutrition must be prioritized for optimum breeding results.

In the male, it’s advisable to use substances derived from nature that increase libido: Tribulus Terrestris, Lepidium Meyenii, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, and Zinc. These are the most effective and have none of the collateral effects of synthetics.

Gastrointestinal disorders, such as nephritis, manifest in the form of diarrhea and frequent vomiting.
This can be due to the intake of food made from raw materials of poor quality. More frequently, the cause is the body’s reaction to the chemical and/or pharmacological residues contained inside.
Each individual has a specific capacity for absorbing these residues; beyond this capacity, inflammation occurs. The mechanism is simple, the inflammatory process acts as an incinerator that destroys the body’s toxic xenobiotic. Turning off the incinerator increases the accumulation of waste.
Similarly, “turning off” the inflammatory process pharmacologically causes a progressive accumulation of toxins and other undesirable substances. In fact, the only functional therapy for inflammation by way of food intolerance is eliminating the toxic waste, not “turning off” the inflammation.

The essential nutrients that fulfill the needs of the subjects are:

Proteins: an important substance effecting various biological systems including: organ and tissue cell regeneration, the functionality of the immune system, the production of enzymes and hormones, and serving as a source of energy. The quality of the protein is as important as the quantity, and to have the correct metabolism, all of the essential amino acids have to be present. Therefore, it’s necessary that the proteins have a high biological value. Examples of high quality protein sources are fish, lamb, deer, wild boar, and venison.

Fats: besides having the nutritional value of providing energy, fats also make food more palatable. The presence of essential fatty acids in the nutrition is important, such as linoleic acid and linolenic acid (Omega-6 and Omega-3) in the correct ratio; the ideal ratio interval for dogs ranges from 1: 1 to 1: 4. It’s particularly important to have a high percentage of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the diet, as it helps to limit the inflammatory phenomenon, as well as affects the function of the cell receptors in cell membranes, the skin, the neural level, and the overall appearance. In nature, Omega3 is found in large quantities in fish. Also, linseed oil is a rich source of these fatty acids.

Fiber: are polysaccharides, important components of nutrition because of their functional and metabolic effects. It increases the sense of satiety, improves the function of the intestines, and helps to prevent associated disorders (for example constipation).

Carbohydrates: biochemical compounds that provide energy and are useful in the maintenance of metabolic processes for puppies or dogs of late pregnancy, breastfeeding, or high athleticism.

Vitamins: are non-synthesizable organic molecules from the body and therefore must be integrated through nutrition. There are fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) and water-soluble vitamins (C and B groups), which are all involved in the metabolic process.

Minerals: nutrients that must be present in the nutrition, since each element plays a precise function within the body. Minerals are involved in the bone composition of the skeletal system, muscular contraction of the muscular system, and has an important role in the nervous system.

Probiotics: useful compounds to increase and maintain the intestinal bacterial flora in dogs with gastrointestinal disorders from sudden changes in diet or as a result of prolonged drug use.

The Meaning of Symptoms

Many therapeutic protocols are born from an aberrant interpretation: the symptoms are universally considered as expressions of disease, while in fact, they are the exact opposite.

All the symptoms that appear in the course of a disease are expressions of the body’s reaction mechanism and are thus evaluated.

Let’s try to reflect on some common symptoms:

  • Inflammation is the healing process of the body.
  • Vomiting is the mechanism by which the body clears the stomach from harmful or toxic substances or elements.
  • Diarrhea is the mechanism by which the body gets rid of poisoning or damaging substances as fast as possible.
  • Cough is the mechanism by which the body can expel phlegm formed in the course of the defense from the larynx, bronchi, and lungs.
  • Fever is the defense system that “burns” the germs and prevents their growth.
  • Pain is the mechanism that induces the body to not fulfill determined movements or activities, in order to avoid further damage to the damaged organ.
  • Muscular contraction is a mechanism by which the body faces a temporarily injured district.

Let’s look to the example of “lumbago”, a disease almost all of us have incurred during our life, and reflect on the meaning of the symptoms that appear during this very painful and debilitating disease.

The muscle contractions of the spine act as a “cast”. In this way, the body prevents movement that would risk to expand the damages.

The pain is the most effective tool that the body can achieve to prevent the affected subject to move freely, also in this case amplifying stress on the affected area.

The inflammation is the process by which the body “repairs” the injury in place.

Any medical textbook teaches this to students, but then veterinarians and pharmacists often work in exactly the opposite direction.

The more revealing example perhaps is the very real meaning of inflammation.
