Gold Standard Herbs at Poochie Moochie


     At Poochie Moochie here in Edmonton we're proud to carry the whole line of Gold Standard Herbs by Dr. Steve Marsden. He is one of the world's foremost holistic veterinarians. He is a conventionally trained veterinarian who received his doctorate in 1988 and went on to become a naturopathic physician and board certified Chinese medical practitioner. He and his wife Karen Marsden have used these skill sets right here in Edmonton at their holistic veterinary clinic for 20 years!

     When a dog or cat has health concerns and is brought to a traditional Veterinarian the approach is to treat the body as something to be managed. The treatment is basically a single set of medical procedures and medication that are given to every single patient with a certain set of symptoms. For example a dog with a skin condition is given antibiotics, steroids and is encouraged to be put on a prescription diet.

Symptoms are the body's way of telling you what's going on inside. Suppression happens when you use large doses of medication that force the body to act a certain way. These medications work to hide symptoms. They don't cure anything.

Drugs kill the harmful bacteria which is why you see these drugs working, but it also kills the friendly bacteria which means long term your pet's immune system is wiped of it's natural defense, often resulting in your pet having to stay on these medications for life.

Traditional Chinese Medicine's approach is to start at the root of the problem, by first addressing the disharmony that's causing these symptoms to occur.

When herbs enter the body, they clean, balance, help assimilate nutrients, support glandular systems and strengthen the immune system. They actually change the tissue and environment of the body.

The most important thing is that herbs don't damage your dogs microbiome.

The top concerns of the patients that Dr. Steve Marsden was treating was allergies, GI upset, pancreatitis, lameness and stress. He found himself reaching for the same herb prescriptions with amazing results, leading to vet bills being cut in half!

Since many pet owners struggle with the same issues in their own pets, but don't have access to a holistic veterinarian it made sense for Dr. Steve to offer these same formulas to the general public. And just like that, Gold Standard Herbs were born.

There are 6 products in the Gold Standard line up.

1. Halscion - This supplement supports calmness & normalizes brain circulation to promote better cognitive thinking. It also normalizes the gut-brain-skin axis to help prevent and heal gastric ulcers, stress induced colitis and diarrhea.

2. Cessorex - This balances the immune system and is used to soothe and treat allergies. It works to correct the microbiome and seals leaky gut.

3. Adoptrex - This supports normal gut and pancreatic function. In dogs with clinical pancreatitis they aren't able to switch foods, supporting your pets body with this supplement prevents flare ups, therefore allowing for the possibility of diet changes.

4. Voltrex - The ultimate joint supplement for all types of joint inflammation it supports normal blood flow to joints and ligaments so healing can occur without compromising pain relief.

5. DM Formula - The first and only product specifically formulated to help stabilize and reverse symptoms in dogs with Degenerative Myelopathy.

6. Lumbrex - This is for dogs with spinal issues including disc disease and luxating patella, it works by normalizing circulation through the spinal column which in turn works to improve blood flow to the liver, kidneys, brain, ears and skin.

Patience and trust in holistic medicine is a must. Because these herbs are working to actually heal the body it can take a couple weeks to see the desired effect.

For the best results it is recommended to feed these supplements alongside a fresh food diet and support your dogs body with Probiotics.

At Poochie Moochie Edmonton we do extensive research into each of the products we bring into our store and would love to help you take care of your pets body holistically.
