What a week !!! But … it is give away time

Spread the love

It is Wednesday, middle of the week.

What a week we have had, raining non stop that we have hardly gone out and between working and trying to get Layla out when the rain stops it has been exhausting but today the sun is shining and hopefully it will be for a couple of days.

As you all know I watch Layla very carefully health wise as she is getting older like me and am always looking for ways to keep her healthy. I had noticed she was losing weight all of a sudden and was concerned so I took her to the vet a week a ago to find out what was going on. This was a vet I have never used but due to different reasons I had to go to her and it was the biggest mistake of my life. I have never met such a cold person in my life who all she was interested in was how to make money. She did not answer my questions, told me that she had a gum infection and did nothing about it, and in a nutshell I walked out of her clinic nearly in tears and worried big time.

I yesterday went to my regular vet and I walked out of there smiling and relaxed. She gave Layla a proper examination, we did a blood test to check her on the inside and I also found out she had put on one pound phew. I sat with her talking about what I am feeding her, where I am getting the information and she was really happy with what I am doing. She checked her gums and gave me some antibiotics for them although they are not as bad as I thought. I also learned something from her which makes sense and that is :

01. It is better to give her an animal oil than coconut oil.
02. Because of the heater in our building, her skin is drying and she told me to put in her food fish oil and it will help. I do that anyway but am stopping with the coconut oil.
03. Vaccines – she does not think it is necessary for Layla to get this year flu shots, the Leptospirosis shot or any other and that her rabies is good for another 2 years.
04. I showed her the 4Paws Pet Blend Hemp Oil Supplement for Cats or Dogs, and because it has cod liver oil and cold pressed organic, virgin hemp seed oil she liked the product and told me to carry on giving it to her and that is the fish oil that she is getting.
05. I also showed her the 4Paws Topical Relief Balm, and all she said is if it is working that is good.
So, with all this and I being happy with the products for Layla and I am loving the products also we are doing a give away this week for the following products worth $ 125.00 and will be open for Canada and USA residents over the age of 18 years old.
We have become an affiliate with this company so if you are interested in buying their products below is the link :

So that has been our week and we hope everyone is staying warm and safe in this cold weather.
On this note I am going back to sleep as the vet visit exhausted me,
Woof with love from Layla

  1. My senior cat has hyperthyroidism and because of it her fur and skin tend to get very dry. I’d love to try the hemp oil supplement for cats for her. I do give her a little fish oil, but would love to find something that works better for her. She also gets stressed, so the calming part sounds really good to me.

  2. These products sound great, I’d be most interested in the hemp oil supplement. I’m so sorry you had a negative experience with the Vet on staff that day, she sounds awful! I’m glad you went back and saw Layla’s regular Vet, she sounds so great. I hope her gum issue heals up quickly.
    Love & Biscuits,

  3. Glad your baby is doin ok! Great info here, thanks for the insight on coconut oil! I use that sometimes and will try switching. Also love Reatorative Botanicals human products, excited to try to pet products for my senior guy!

  4. I’m so glad Layla is doing better, gained weight and you got to see a vet you love and trust. It’s frightening walking out of a vet’s office with no answers, and no confidence. I love the sound of both products, they both sound amazing and I know Jack would benefit from both, but especially the topical relief balm. According to the vet he has seasonal allergies and I prefer natural solutions when possible. I entered so let’s hope!!

  5. The hemp oil supplement sounds great! I would like that. I’m sorry you had a negative experience with that other Vet but your regular Vet seems terrific, stick with her. Love to Layla.

  6. So glad your regular vet appointment was better. It is so important for us to like our veterinarians! Did she mention why she recommended against coconut oil? I would be very interested as I do give it to my dogs. Does she have a specific alternate she would recommend?

    • Heather she said that we animal oils are so much better for them than coconut oil, so I have switched as I do see the logic in it and she liked the Hemp oil with cod liver oil that I am giving her so have taken her off the coconut oil

  7. We love using hemp oil as a kitty calmer for two of our spastic cats and one with food allergies. Thank you for having this offer!

  8. Layla I’m happy to hear your doctor’s visit went well! Very nice. Only one pound too?! I myself can’t say the same, LOL…I’m working on that. It’s nice to hear that these lovely products are working so well for you too. Good luck to the participants.

  9. I knew animal based oils were the way to go for cats, but I didn’t realize that it was necessarily the same for dogs. Makes sense though.

    Thanks for a great giveaway, I’d love the opportunity to try the products.

  10. This stuff was OK with the vet? Then you must be very happy to give it to Layla. Praise indeed so keep going. Animal based oils makes sense I suppose, maybe animals don’t work so well with plant stuff all the time?

  11. these sounds like great products. congrats on becoming an affiliate of this company. i think the products that i like the most are the pet balm and the comfort balm6 advanced for my back when it starts acting up from doing too much yard work.

  12. So sorry about that poor vet experience. I’m so glad you were able to get back in with your vet. The products sound great! I’m a huge advocate of hemp oil for my dogs and have also become an affiliate (different company) after seeing such success with it. I am quite happy this is a choice for us for our pets, now! Congrats on your affiliation!

  13. The calming hemp oil sounds great for both me and hubby. This is all new to me but sounds amazing!
    Layla looks so beautiful and glad she is doing better!

  14. I’m so sorry that you had to deal with that first vet. I’m glad that your regular vet was able to put your mind at ease and help Layla.
