Our Store is Now OPEN!
The “Go Natural” theme at “No Horsing Around” along with a growing public desire for alternative options to promote good health for our animal companions has prompted us to establish a product line to help our clients achieve and support this goal.
Our basic approach includes a good, wholesome and well balanced diet inclusive of supplements and body work in order to keep our animal’s immune systems strong, so they will be more capable of warding off potential health issues before they can become a real problem. For animals that do develop imbalances or illnesses we want to offer alternative products and services that work with and support an animal’s natural ability to heal themselves.
Every product we carry has been researched and then tested in-house not only to familiarize ourselves with the products and their potential effectiveness, but to give us the means to more successfully help our clients find the item that might best address the needs of the individual animal. WE'VE DONE THE RESEARCH SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO! Of course results may vary since all animals are different and we can only tell you what we’ve experienced with our own animals.
So how do we choose our products?
All of the products we carry have to meet certain criteria in order to be offered through our store. Ideally we look for “all natural” products that will help an animal heal themselves; which means you will find items containing herbs, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, and other ingredients that compliment the physiology of our animal friends. Of course we also recognize that throughout history, science has made some amazing discoveries when it comes to animal health so we will always keep our minds open to investigating and promoting new products.
Part of our selection process includes a thorough investigation of the ingredients. If there is even just one ingredient that is considered “toxic” in that it may cause harm or have residual effects we will not carry the product. Basically, if we wouldn’t use a product on our own animals (or ourselves!) we simply would not recommend it to our clients. Have you read the ingredients on your favorite products lately? You may be surprised – or shocked may be the better word!
Additionally, we will not carry products that we believe would be detrimental to the overall health of your animal – short term or long term. For instance, we will not carry certain horse treats because research has shown that too much sugar and starch can have negative health effects on our equine friends including PSSM (polysaccharide storage myopathy), laminitis and IR (Insulin Resistance) to name a few. Again, if it’s not something we would feed to our own animals we certainly aren’t going to recommend that you feed it to yours!
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that “No Horsing Around” is truly dedicated to helping you and your animals live a long, happy and healthy life; and we aim to support that initiative through our products as well as through the services we provide.
