A HUGE Thank You Is In Order! 
Hurricane Harvey Relief

Just this past week, we sent out a plea on facebook to help us in collecting food and other supplies for animals impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  In just 2 1/2 days, our Bark Avenue family and friends collectively donated over 2,200 lbs of food PLUS supplies including bowls, toys, beds, collars, treats, kitty litter, bottled water, a shop vac, doggie bandanas, clothes and much more! 

These supplies are going to be delivered to a veterinarian clinic in Beeville, TX called Credence Veterinary Clinic where the supplies will be distributed to several shelters that were in the direct path of the storm. Many of these shelters still have no electricity and others have a very limited supply of food to go around to all of the rescued animals. The generosity of our community is overwhelming. Together, we are making such a difference in so many pet's and families lives! To give you an idea, when the recipients received the donations that were collected, they were in awe and cried tears of joy!  So heartwarming that all of us are making a difference.

To keep the momentum going, we will continue to be a donation site for these needy animals over the weekend. The group that is taking our supplies down south will be loading up and taking another load next week as they had more donations than they anticipated.  If you would like to donate any items to those impacted by Harvey, feel free to drop items off at Bark Avenue through the weekend. 

Another way that you can support the pets effected by Harvey is by purchasing a bag of RAWZ dog or cat food. For every bag purchased, RAWZ will donate a bag of equal value to help the Hurricane victims. This offer will go through October.

Highlighted Brands This Month:

  • RAWZ - Super premium meal free food that is supporting Hurricane Harvey victims by donating a bag of food for every bag purchased. 
  • Bones & Co - Austin based company that not only makes premium raw food, but supplements also including Goat's Milk, Bone Broth and Bark Boost, which is comprised of cold pressed vegetables making it a super anti-oxidant blend.

  • 4Life Transfer Factor -  This is an immune system modulator, which means that the key ingredients are able to go into the body to adjust the immune system either up or down depending on the issue.  Transfer Factors have 3 major functions
    • They alert the immune system when there is an invader, be it a pathogen or parasite
    • They alert the immune system to attack the invader
    • They alert the immune system to remember those invaders so that the immune system knows what to do should they come in contact with that invader in the future (see article below regarding ways to improve the immune system)

Keep Your Dog Healthy with 5 Immune System Boosters
Dogs Naturally Magazine

Hotspots. Diabetes. Ear Infections. UTIs. Cancer.

What do these prevalent pet diseases have in common, you ask?

Answer: The immune system, or more accurately, an unbalanced immune system... Because at the root of all disease and illness is an immune system that just isn't working the way it should.

Conventional medicine often treats each of these diseases as individual instances of illness to be suppressed with medications like steroids and antibiotics.

On the other hand, holistic medicine views them as part of a larger picture to be addressed as a whole - and largely based on proper  immune system function.

Suppressive medications like steroids hide the real problem and further suppress the immune system, which does nothing but make the patient worse in the long run.

Since the immune system is such a major player in the world of true health and vitality, we should think about  boosting it whenever we can.

How can we boost it?
Will Falconer DVM recommends the following immune boosters that can help with immune intelligence, which means the immune system not only knows what to attack and when, but it knows when to stand down and to return to its quiet state of alertness.
"A runaway immune system can attack self. We call this autoimmune disease. We'd ideally want balanced immunity."
- Will Falconer
5 Ways To Give Your Dog A Boost!
Here are five immune boosters for your dog recommended by Falconer that you can add to your dog's meals:

1. Transfer Factors
These are tiny proteins in the cytokine class, purified from  colostrum, egg yolk and other sources that confer immune intelligence to those taking them. These proteins increase recognition of invaders as well as rapid attacks on them. And they've proven invaluable in autoimmune disease down regulation as well.

2. Echinacea
Echinacea is an herb known particularly for its effectiveness in treating acute infectious illnesses. Unfortunately there are many poor quality supplements on the market, so finding a quality manufacturer is key. Falconer says one supplement that does stand out is MediHerb's Echinacea Premium.

3. Reishi
The reishi mushroom is known for a host of immune system benefits, including inhibiting tumors, and analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral activities. Plus it helps with liver detox.

4. More Mushrooms
Reishi isn't the only mushroom with immune enhancing effects. There are several, including:
  • Cordyceps enhance stamina and potently boost the immune system.
  • Agaricus blazei is a known cancer fighter.
  • Shiitake comes in handy for viruses, and is often available fresh, so it could be added to food for its medical benefits as well as for taste.
  • Maitake boosts immunity, helps with obesity and contains a host of vitamins.
Falconer uses 4Life Research's transfer factors, which combines transfer factors with several of these potent mushrooms for a synergistic effect.

5. Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract checks cell proliferation in tumors and hastens cancer cell death. It also has antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant properties.
Falconer adds one final note on administering  immune boosters - favor change over consistency.
"It's a good idea to stop and start and change immune boosters, in addition to varying the dosage. The immune system seems to benefit from vacations and changes more than if something is given constantly."
- Will Falconer
