Here are some helpful resources to help you make informed decisions on your pets diets and the use of zeolites for optimum health.
The old adage “we are what we eat” holds true for our animals as well as ourselves. There are many opinions about the best diet for ourselves and our animals, it is most important to determine what works best for you and your pets. Commercial pet foods tend to be filled with chemicals, preservatives and lots of unknown by-products. After reading Dr. Martin Goldstein's’ book, The Nature of Animal Healing, our pets lives were changed forever and I believe that they are all healthier because of it.
Our dogs, primarily eat a diet of cooked (organic) ground beef, turkey or chicken with rice, shredded fresh vegetables out of our garden and a little bit of natural kibble. For our 2 twin black and white Shih Tzu's, they also get 1 drop of Zeolites morning and night.
Our horses are all dressage athletes. They are stabled in 36’X36’ covered pens and watered exclusively in large barrels so that their consumption can be monitored and they have a large supply of clean fresh water.
I have lived and had show horses in Upstate New York, Ohio, Australia and Arizona. Diets do change depending upon the environment and availability. I currently feed a small amount of alfalfa hay, free feed bermuda hay (so they can graze all day just like mother nature intended) , alfalfa pellets (nothing puts on a better topline) and they get garlic each morning and 5 drops of Zeolite 3x a day.
One of our horses, an Oldenburg mare has always been a little hot and distracted in her work and in her stall. I spoke with one vet who had used a lot of Zeolites in her practice and she said that they found that this type of behavior she believed to be linked to mercury and that the zeolites might help. After just a few days on the zeolites, I noticed a marked difference in her behavior in her stall as well as in the ring. She is much more focused, less reactionary and calmer in her acceptance of new things. I also noticed a big difference in her condition, recovery time and strength. Our Grand Prix horse certainly showed marked improvement in condition, nutrient absorption and energy.
All people and animals need to drink plenty of clean, fresh water especially when taking zeolites. The only way that toxins, chemicals and heavy metals are removed is through excretion of urine and sweat. You will notice that your animals will tend to drink more when they are on Zeolites . Be sure to monitor their water and provide plenty of it. As a human, you should drink no less that 1/2oz of water per pound of body weight ( if you weigh 100#s you should drink 50 oz of water daily). Animals are much better than humans at maintaining a good hydration level and we have never had any issues with this.
