The CORE 4 is a series of 4 critical supplements which come in 3 products/bottles and they arenecessary to enhance your current feeding program and promote wellness and longevity for your cat.
The CORE 4 is the most "basic" supplements that all my pets are fed on a daily basis (including our human family). We have found if you start your cats out on this supplement package, and remain on this life long program the cats will stay healthy til the very end.
The CORE 4 for Cats consists of the following supplements which come in a KIT format.
1) Probiotics- a blend of beneficial bacteria also known as "intestinal flora" which boosts the immune function and protects the lining of the gut, helping to prevent pathogenic overgrowth (bacteria/fungus/yeasts) which compromises the protective lining of the gut. When this happens there is the potential for Leaky Gut Syndrome and Toxic Gut which can lead to bloat, compromised health, systemic yeast infections and suppressed immune systems.This is true in humans too.
Probiotics that have a component of some of the microorganisms being microencapsulated is very important, so they able to pass the stomach juices and break down further in the intestines to help resolve difficult digestive issues caused by Candida, Coccidia, Giardia, parasite infestation, E coli, Salmonella, Clostridium, and Herpes Virus. BakPakPlus is the product of choice.
2) Digestive Enzymes-there are many enzymes that help to break down the food for better digestion. The three that are of most importance are amylase (carbohydrates) protease (protein), lipase (fats) and they are often found in combination Probiotic products. They are critical in getting the most out of your nutrition.BakPakPlus is the product of choice.
3) Dietary Enzymes- are from whole living fresh foods and sprouted foods have the most activity. Only in whole fresh foods are the enzymatic qualities still in tact. Using dietary enzymes in a diet is one way to put the "living component" back into a processed pet food. Dietary enzymes have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and they detoxify the body quickly, which speeds any healing and repair at a cellular level. Nzymes granular or chewable pet treats are the product of choice.
4) Ox-E-Drops - The primary reason this liquid concentrate is in The Core 4 - 4 Cats, is because it helps to keep a healthy the pH in the gut so pathogenic bacteria and fungus such as Candida Albicans(yeast overgrowth) does not over growth and make pets prone to systemic yeast infections. Ox-E-Drops are a safe and stable aqueous compound which offers many internal and topical uses. It has powerful oxidizing properties that act as a bactericide, viricide and fungicide.
Note: I use it in my pets drinking water and diluted drops in their daily meals. It can be used in a 2% solution (1 cup distilled water + 1 teaspoon of Ox-E-Drops) and used to clean ears, spray on wounds, colonics .
For eye washes use 1/2 teaspoon Ox-E-Drops in 1 cup of water.
Because Ox-E-Drops decontaminates water, it should be taken with you when you travel, no need to haul water from home. It can be used internally and in a vaporizer (60 drops to 1 gallon) for respiratory problems in dogs and cats.
