spotlightinterviewbanner
Over the next 5 weeks we are going to be bringing you a 5 part pet product review series with products from NHV Natural Pet Products but first we are bringing you an exclusive interview with the President & owner of NHV; Patra. Adding the supplements from NHV to your pets diet is a great way to keep them healthy & happy, just like humans taking vitamins & supplements. NHV’s website has an abundance of products  for cats, dogs and small exotics. You can also go on their website and search remedies by condition and breed. I want to share this paragraph from their website as it gives some great info about NHV.

“If you’ve ever seen a sick dog eat grass then you know how powerful nature’s remedies can be. Here at NHV Natural Pet Products, we believe in supporting your pet’s health and well-being with vet-formulated herbal solutions designed to promote health and stimulate healing. All of our products and supplements are made with 100% natural ingredients, formulated by a master herbalist and a holistic veterinarian with more than 20 years’ experience developing plant-based remedies. They are free of additives and preservatives, made with the finest organically grown or ethically harvested herbs, and manufactured with vegetable-based glycerin.

All of our products are manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility where they must meet stringent in-house standards before being tested a second time by a third-party lab. It’s all part of our commitment to producing supplements we know you’ve come to love and trust” (Paragraph Credit: http://www.www.nhvnaturalpetproducts.com)

*Why was it started?
Growing up, my life was highly influenced by alternative, herbal, eastern, and natural medicines. I was inspired at how herbs and nature could make such significant improvements for well-being, and how limited the side effects (if any) were.

I had begun a company for humans prior to starting NHV, and when my own dog began feeling ill, I gave her some of the products we had made for people. Her response to the supplements was so positive that I wanted to share this with other pets and pet owners. In order to make this a reality, we hired a holistic veterinarian and a herbalist full-time to research and develop supplements that were safe for animal use. All of our supplements are vet-formulated and vet approved.

*Do you have any animals? If so, name, breed and something interesting about them?
Yes, Lady is my Beagle mix rescue dog from Sri Lanka. She is 20 years old and has been using the NHV supplements for her conditions —cancer, Cushing’s disease, pancreatitis, and general old age.
You can read her stories on our blog: http://blog.nhvnaturalpetproducts.com/category/ladys-blog/

Solara is my Tortoiseshell cat. She is a feisty, independent girl who loves attention on her terms. She is also on our NHV supplements (Resthyro, Tripsy, and Multi Essentials). I also have a number of koi fish.

Our staff are also animal lovers and have their own furry family of dogs and cats.

    This sounds like a wonderful company! I love holistic remedies. Personally, I believe that natural means should be the first line of defense with medical problems.

      I totally agree with you! I also use home remedies for many things. I just started using essential oils last year and cant leave the house without my mini kit in my purse.
