IN HONOR OF NATIONAL ADOPT A SHELTER PET DAY NHV NATURAL PET PRODUCTS OFFERS TIPS FOR HELPING RESCUE PETS FEEL AT HOME

“The most important thing is to have patience with a new pet entering a household,” says Patra De Silva, President of NHV Natural Pet Products. “Remember that animals who were abandoned or suffered poor treatment in the past can have some bad habits or traumas. The best way to help them is by giving them a lot of love. They may have a fear of people at the start, but they will learn that they no longer need to be afraid.”

National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day is April 30th. Adopting a rescue animal is very rewarding, but there are some special considerations to keep in mind with shelter pets to help ease the transition to a new home.

Positive reinforcement is a key tactic when dealing with pets adopted from a shelter. “Reacting negatively to something they have done can bring out undesirable behaviors,” says Patra De Silva, President of NHV Natural Pet Products— makers of veterinarian-approved and formulated natural supplements from organically grown and wild crafted herbs. “Calmly correct your pet and reward them with small treats or lots of praise and petting the moment they show the right behavior.” Consistency is important, so everyone in the house should use the same hand commands, to avoid confusion.

Resource guarding can be a difficult issue. It is important to respect your pet and to understand the reason they have developed that behavior. Provide a safe place for your pet to eat and make sure no one – a family member or another pet — interrupts them during meal time. Usually as a pet learns that meal time is safe, their resource guarding behaviors will significantly reduce over time.

Going to a new place can cause stress for a pet. Spraying lavender oil infused water in the room will help keep your pet calm.  NHV Natural Pet Products offers the 

NHV Shelter Pet Happy Start Kit which includes NHV Matricalm, to calm nerves in dogs and cats who may be anxious in new surroundings; NHV Plantaeris, which can help soothe your new pet’s GI tract as they may experience gastrointestinal trouble due to stress; and NHV Multi Essentials, to help deliver the nutrition they need to be strong and healthy, since pets may not eat as well as they should in a new situation.These supplements will work well together to give your pet a healthy start in your home. NHV offers a 15% discount to registered animal shelters as well as a 10% discount for those adopting pets from a shelter (discount codes will be provided to pet owners at the shelter).

Be sure to check your new pet for fleas, ticks and parasites. De-worming with a natural formula like NHV Inulin-PK will be very beneficial, even if parasites aren’t confirmed. It’s an all-natural herbal product that works to repair internal damage.

NHV NATURAL PET PRODUCTS provides veterinarian-formulated supplements derived from natural botanicals to support the health and well-being of pets including dogs, cats and small animals. In addition to the safe and effective manufacture of a full-line of Veterinarian-approved pet supplements that contain organically grown and ethically wild crafted herbs and botanicals, NHV also offers vet consultations to provide professional support and guidance for disease prevention and treatment for over 100 pet health conditions.
