It’s important to make the connection…….
Of the many referrals and inquires we receive from horse and dog owners across Canada, they’re often looking for advice and products to help their horses and dogs feel better; concerns such as overweight, underweight, laminitis, lethargy, skin irritations, dry dull coat, allergies, coughing and respiratory ailments to name a few. We are always happy to help, knowing that our products can often assist with all of these issues. Once a client describes the ailment they’re trying to address, my first question is always, “What is your horse or dog eating at the moment, how much and how often?” It’s interesting to hear that a number of owners either don’t know what their horse or dog is eating, or don’t really understand what’s in the feed that they’re purchasing.
Connecting the dots between food and poor health is the link that is often missed.
Many commercially prepared pellets and feed products are largely comprised of fillers, such as soy and corn for example. This can have a negative effect on an animal’s overall health. Most soy is genetically modified – which can cause allergic reactions in horses, resulting in respiratory, skin and digestive issues. Some of this may be an allergic response to allergens found in soy, or it may be related to the fact that most soy is genetically modified, which can cause a whole host of negative health issues. Furthermore, soy contains significant levels of isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen, which mimics estrogen in the body and influences negative behaviour, affects breeding, and can interact negatively with their hormones, both for male and female horses.
Our goal at Prime Hemp is to restore and maintain each animal’s health based on time-tested natural healing methods. Diet is always at the heart of it. Two out of three human diseases can be prevented, improved or cured by diet alone. We have found that the same holds true for horses and dogs. Our all natural, non-GMO, pesticide-free products provide the necessary nutrients for the body to heal and recover from many diseases, such as arthritis, anemia, diabetes, digestive diseases and autoimmune diseases are just a few of a long list of health conditions that are related to diet.
We understand that each individual animal and situation is unique – we tailor an appropriate all natural diet plan for you based on your animal’s condition and nutritional needs.
