Holistic Support for Growing Pets
Bringing home a new furry friend is one of the most thrilling feelings in the world! It is essential that your home is appropriately pet-proofed and that you get everything you need for the smoothest start— including the right diet plan, and supplements. Of course, when a new puppy or kitten comes home, that's when reality sets in, and you realize just how much work it is to take care of this little bundle of joy! Puppies love to chew and eat everything in sight, and kittens will hide anywhere they will fit! For all of the shenanigans that your little furbaby is bound to get into, we recommend adding natural supplements to their daily meals as soon as they are vaccinated and weaned. This proactive care plan is beneficial for supporting their overall well-being and giving them a healthy start. It may even be beneficial in slowing down or preventing disease (which may develop due to age, genetics, environment, or poor nutrition). NHV Puppy and Kitten Starter Kit contains Inulin-PK (a deworming aid), Multi Essentials (natural plant-based vitamin and mineral support), Petomega 3 (omega-3 fish oils), Plantaeris (diarrhea support) and First Aid Spray (for minor cuts and wounds).
How the NHV Puppy and Kitten Health Starter Kit Support Overall Health and Vitality
Puppies and kittens have very sensitive GI tracts, and they love to lick, gobble and chew on things that they aren’t supposed to (like poop), so they are prone to having worm or parasite infections, and upset tummies. Ingredients like elecampane, celandine, milk thistle, and wormwood in Inulin-PK are very gentle aids that encourage the healthy elimination of worms and parasites while helping to maintain a healthy gut. Multi Essentials helps your pet get extra vital nutrients and minerals, which may improve nutrient absorption and metabolism, leading to increases in energy levels and overall vitality. In Petomega 3, the EPA and DHA omega 3s provide critical building blocks for healthy skin development in the coat, eye, heart, and brain, as well as support healthy immune response. Plantaeris contains herbs like thyme which promotes digestion by relaxing muscle cramping and Mullein soothes and lubricates delicate intestinal mucosa while providing gentle support for diarrhea. Ingredients like neem, aloe vera, and tea tree oil in the First Aid Spray contain natural disinfectant properties for cleaning wounds and preventing infection, and the sedative properties of California poppy help reduce stress to encourage faster healing.

Are rawhides ok for puppies?
Chews and bones are a great way to keep your pet happy and stimulated, however, some can be dangerous. Rawhides can break off or get lodged in your pup’s gastrointestinal tract. They often expand when moistened, which makes it harder for your pet to digest them and can result in tummy aches or more severe obstructions.
Do I need to pet-proof my home for my new pet?
While it is entirely up to the person whether or not they want to pet-proof their home, it is highly recommended because you want your home to be safe for your new pet. Puppies love to chew on anything they can get their paws on (including potentially toxic house plants) while kittens may try to chew on loose wires or hide in tiny spots (where they can easily get stuck in).
