Dogs have become the victims of
an environment depleted of nutrients
in their food. By nature dogs are hunters and acquire their food from a
wide variety of game, from mice and rats to elk and deer, depending on
their size. The nutrients they get from their prey are directly
associated to the vegetation the prey animals feed on. If the prey
animal is not able to acquire nutritious feed then the nutrients needed
by the dog are also not available.
The dog by nature is not big
consumers of herbs as is a horse or
cow, but they still need the nutrients in a usable form as they always
have needed to be replaced. You see, as the plant grows, it garners
certain vitamins and minerals out of the ground that the plant needs to
grow to its optimum health. It then changes these nutrients to a form
it can utilize through the osmotic process, which then prepares the
nutrients for a usable form for the grazing animal. When the grazing
animal is eaten by the hunter, whether it is man or beast, they acquire
the usable nutrients as they come from the prey.
This is how it was all designed
to work from the beginning. How it
is working now is the dog no longer hunts for a living, in most cases,
and when it does, it does not hunt animals that are fed on a wide
variety of natural feed sources. Most often the feed these animals are
fed are raised on chemicals and synthetics, which are then passed on to
the consumer, in this case the dog.
Most domestic dogs rely on
someone to feed them and in most cases
they are being fed corn or rice. Some are lucky enough to get a food
source which contains some real beef, lamb, or chicken, most of which
are by products of undesirable meat sources such as barnyard
fatalities. Many of these fatalities occur after having been injected
with everything known to the chemical world.
The next best thing for a dog
to eat, to get the nutrients they
need, is a clean food source and supplement with the nutrients in their
usable form, found in Silver Lining Herbs.
Silver Lining got its start
from the horse industry, but by popular
demand has grown into the dog world. For years the dogs of family and
friends have benefited from the use of these fine products that are now

recommended for all dogs to support normal health and vitality. K9
Foundation is the formula upon which all of Silver Linings other canine

always be used in conjunction with the K9 Foundation Formula to
maximize their efficacy. The exception to this rule is the K9 #20 Keep
Cool Formula which will be most effective when used alone.

The liver is the great
detoxifying organ of the body. Few organs have greater impact on
over-all health and vitality. Just one example of the detoxifying
function of the liver is its removal of histamines from the blood.
Histamines cause the outward symptoms of itching, sneezing and swelling
in an allergic reaction. A healthy liver quickly removes these noxious
allergy chemicals from the body and minimizes their effect. Some
medications, chemicals and diets can overload the liver and over-tax
its detoxifying operations. This formula is a wonderful support to the
livers normal functions. *Note: It may be wise to use the #24 Immune
Support or #34 All-R-G Support.
