Hi my name is Lyn. Everyone calls me Aunt Lyn-

I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a little about myself and my family, because along with YOU and the rest of our loyal clients – we all form Aunt Lyn’s.

First, my brothers Louis, Gary, and I appreciate and want to thank you for visiting with us. We really do hope you enjoy our website, not just as a place to shop, but to visit, read our blogs, newsletters, and mostly to share your Aunt Lyn’s experiences by posting pictures of you and your dog in our review area. 

We are more than just a store. We are a family owned business that takes pride in our products and services.  You and every one of our online friends are part of the Aunt Lyn’s community – that’s how we see it and it’s how everyone who works at Aunt Lyn’s feels.

So, let me explain how Aunt Lyn’s began and the driving forces, philosophies and values that got us where we are today.

 

Entrepreneurship – Starting Small

Aunt Lyn’s began when our Grandpa Louis and Grandma Domenica decided to leave their family and home in Italy and travel to America. This was way back in the early 1900’s. They had very little in the way of material goods but they had drive, a strong work ethic, and took pride in whatever job they had to do in order to make it. They quickly settled into the community, raised a family, and had many friends.

Grandpa Louis saw that there was a need in the neighborhood for good quality Italian bread just like they made back in Italy. He started baking bread and selling it from a pushcart along the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn, New York. 

With the help of Grandma, they saved their pennies and eventually bought the building they had rented. The bakery, with its coal fired brick ovens, produced delicious loaves of bread that were in great demand in the community and throughout the boroughs.

In addition to selling bread, Grandpa sold flour and other bakery supplies to other bakeries in New York. With the help of his children (Mike, Josephine, Santo, and Pat), bread, cookies, cakes, and pastries were supplied to restaurants and grocery stores throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the other boroughs.

By watching how Grandpa and the rest of the family grew the business, my brothers and I learned that good things can start small-like a delicious loaf of bread or a small bottle of Wellness Oil and can grow into something larger.

This is how Aunt Lyn’s began - by helping people and their pets. Through good word of mouth, great products, and a sterling reputation, Aunt Lyn’s has expanded throughout the community and is continuing to grow.

And now Aunt Lyn’s is expanding through the Internet, and we are delighted that we can reach and help more people and more pets than we ever could before. We hope that one day, by continuing to work hard and persevere, everyone will know about the benefits of the quality products we provide.

 

Customer Service and Quality Products

To continue the story of our journey to where we are today , lets fast forward to 1960’s...

 

That's when my grandpa and grandma retired, an our Dad, Santo, along with his sister, Josephine - our Aunt Jo, took over the management of the bakery.

No one worked harder than our Dad – 7 days a week with no time off.  He made certain that the quality of the products remained deliciously consistent and that every baker, pastry chef, and drivers knew just how important the quality and timeliness of delivery were.

Josephine managed the retail side of the business and was the person that greeted the customers that came into the store, just like her mom had done , before her. She made sure the sales staff were courteous and helpful and held everyone to a high standard of cleanliness.

The work ethic of our dad and aunt showed us the value of being consistent and dependable in both product and delivery. We never forget that every product we sell is being purchased because someone cares about his or her pet.  We want to make sure every single item meets or exceeds that person’s expectations. Our dad always used to say that even though we were making thousands of loaves of bread a day, one person was going to buy and eat one of those loaves. To that person, that loaf had to be perfect.  That’s the way you keep customers coming back.

Aunt Lyn’s continues to follow this advice. We make, source, and sell the best products. If, for any reason, you’re unhappy with your purchase you can return it within 30 days for a full refund.

Love What You Do and You’ll Never Work a Day in Your Life

 

The bakery business, much like dog care , can be hard. If you’re committed to giving people fresh bread every day, you have to prepare and bake the bread during the night. It’s also a seven-day a week, no-holidays-off business. Despite the crazy hours, I never heard anyone in the family complain. The reason – they loved the business.  Something about the smell of the fresh bread, the complements we got from the customers and just the satisfaction of doing a good job made it seem more like a hobby than a job.

What we do at Aunt Lyn’s is a labor of love. Knowing that the products we sell help pets feel better and stay safe motivate me to work hard and constantly look for new ways to help.  Is it hard work? Sometimes, but so what?

We continue to follow this advice. We make, source and sell the best products we can.

 

Training

 

When people ask how we got started in the dog business, we say it can be traced back to our Uncle Pat. He was a trainer and breeder of dogs, but he loved all animals and had an assortment of pets from monkeys, birds, and snakes to everything in between. He also saw to it that every pet he owned was well trained, well cared for and, most importantly, loved.  We should mention that Uncle Pat gave us our favorite childhood dog, Gemini.

We can’t say that he was the sole influence on why we love dogs, but he certainly played a big part. He is the one that taught us the importance of having well trained dogs, giving them the best you can afford, and looking after them the way you would look after yourself. At Aunt Lyn’s we learned these lessons well. In fact, the Behavior, Exercise, Socialization, and Training (B.E.S.T.) program we use today had its start with Uncle Pat’s approach to dog training and care.

 

Nutrition

Our mom was an early adopter of the concept of eating healthy. At supper we always had fresh vegetables to go along with the meat serving, and as you might imagine, fresh bread on the table. However, Mom's nutrition went far beyond , "eat your veggies" that all children hear.

Mom was way ahead of her time when it came to making the right food choices. We would tease her about growing alfalfa in the kitchen and she would make whole-wheat muffins, waffles, and pancakes because she felt (and rightly so) that bleached flour or processed wheat was not the best. She also avoided buying packaged foods, which were starting to be all the rage at the time.  She preferred making dishes from scratch to avoid the chemicals and preservatives that food processors love to include.

All these ideas seemed strange at the time, but her approach was certainly the right one. Mom is now close to 90, has a social life most millennials would envy, and walks miles every day.

At Aunt Lyn’s we’ve adopted mom’s approach to healthy eating and staying active. Every animal in our care is fed a diet of natural and whole foods.  We avoid packaged products and make sure every dog gets the exercise he or she needs.

 

Herbal Natural Remedies

Our Grandma Pedrini , Granma Livia - had a way with animals.  Gemini, for example, absolutely loved her and she loved him.  Gemini would know she was coming for a visit when she was still a block away from the house. When she walked in the door he would be wild with excitement.

She always looked after him using herbal treatments as a way to keep him healthy and to treat him when he wasn’t feeling well. For example, she would make sachets of oregano, rosemary, and other secret ingredients to place on his collar to keep fleas away - he never had any. She would also feed him specially prepared meals made from table scraps and mixtures of herbs - it must have worked. He lived to be over 20 years old!

By the way, Grandma’s treatments were not reserved for just the animals.  She used them on herself and the family as well.  Now you know how our interest in herbal remedies was formed. Today our Wellness Remedies help with more than just fleas, but the ideas of the formulations started back in the day, watching Grandma make oregano, rosemary, and the secret ingredients sachets.  Oh, just as an aside, Grandma lived to be over 103.

 

Animal Advocacy

Everyone in our family believes that animals should be respected, treated humanely and should never be abused, neglected or mistreated. In fact, a cousin of ours who recently passed away, was chief operating officer at Texas Humane Heroes, in Austin, Texas. Ron was a strong advocate for animals and animal rights. He and his team were able to save many dogs and find them loving homes.  If you’re looking to make a donation to a no-kill, private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that cares for dogs and cats, you should look into Texas Humane Heroes.

 

Having Faith

 

Having faith in a higher power is a core part of my beliefs. Some customers feel that because faith is so personal, it shouldn’t have any place in business – they’re wrong.  Our faith affects how we treat people (honestly and fairly) and run our business (with the highest integrity). It is also helps during those hard times when you lose a loved one – person or pet.

Speaking of pets, because of our faith, every now and then someone will ask us if we believe dogs go to heaven. We like to tell this story in our response:

There was a little girl who was sitting on her front steps crying like she was never going to stop.  An old priest walked by and asked what was wrong. “My dog died today and someone said dogs don’t go to heaven”, she sobbed.  The priest smiled and said, “God wants you to be happy in heaven, so if your dog will make you happy – I guarantee he’ll be there.”

To honor all those family members who shaped our lives, and all those pets that shared our love, we will run special promotions during the year named after them. 

So, in addition to the usual July 4th sale everyone has, don’t be surprised if you see saving promotions named after our Dad Santo, Grandma Livia, Aunt Jo and our beloved family dog Gemini, and  all the others mentioned above. 

We hope these pictures we've posted reflect, that by us looking back and remembering the people, pets, values traditions, and most importantly lessons they taught us ....this  is our way to not only honor them but expressing to you that they are  with us still, in our hearts minds and actions - walking  with us together-towards the future  . 

We hope you've enjoyed reading about our journey and we hope it prompts you to reflect on all the pets and people who have imprinted your life in a positive way.

God Bless You and God Bless America.

From Everyone  at Aunt Lyns

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil in its raw form is one of the healthiest fats to consume. It aids in weight loss, increases energy, speeds up metabolism, and boosts the immune system. It also benefits the digestive system and helps memory and cognitive function.

Topically it aids in dry skin and scalp issues. Also promotes healthy looking skin. Coconut has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Many people use coconut oil for medicinal purposes.

In dogs, the Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) in coconut oil balances the thyroid which helps overweight dogs lose weight and sedentary dogs feel energetic.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is made from the fruit of the olive tree and is naturally high in healthy fatty acids. Some of the benefits include, promoting a healthy heart, fighting certain types of cancer, and supporting brain health. Olive oil can be used to treat or help prevent diabetes, and it helps balance hormones.

The oils used in Aunt Lyn's Wellness products, whether essential oils or carrier oils like olive oil, are given to the pet in small but effective quantities. use olive oil in small amounts as a carrier for EO's we also feel good knowing that the benefits of our Carrier Oils go far beyond what you purchase our products for.

Here is some further information on using olive oil to optimize your furry friends health: "Rich in monounsaturated fats, olive oil prevents and lessens the effects of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It contains oleic acid, in addition to some compounds (squalene and terpenoids) that are believed to be effective in preventing cancer, which kills a staggering 50% of dogs over the age of 10".

Mineral Oil

Mineral oil has various positive effects on skin, hair, and health. Mineral Oil can also eliminate ear mites which in turn helps reduce excessive scratching of the ears.

At Aunt Lyn's we use just the right amounts mineral oil to get the maximum benefit from the essential oils. And remember, there are health benefits in the both the essential and carrier oils.

Mineral oil is also well know to treat constipation in both people and pets. While we do not have a blend to treat constipation in dogs, if you are interested in reading further on this subject here is the link that will help: https://www.cuteness.com/article/administer-mineral-oil-dogs#close

Thieves Oil

Thieves Oil is made up of five essential oils, clove, rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus and cinnamon bark. It is known to reduce stress, neutralize bacterial and viral pathogens, improve digestion, strengthen bones and reduce inflammation. It is also well known for lowering fever, healing skin conditions, aiding in weight loss and strengthening the respiratory system.

In this case a picture is worth 1000 words .

The many uses of Thieves Oil :

Oregano Oil

Known primarily for its ability to add flavor to many foods, Oregano Oil is also used to treat a number of physical ailments. The herb boasts strong antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

It is often used as a digested and respiratory aid (lessening mucus), and has been used for centuries to help get rid of intestinal parasites. Oregano is known to have powerful antioxidant and anticancer activity.

“In a study at Georgetown University, essential oil of oregano inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus (staph) bacteria in the test tube as effectively as antibiotics did.” - Prescription for Dietary Wellness: Using Foods to Heal by Phyllis A. Balch, CNC

In nature, dogs would eat herbs and grasses that were naturally and readily available to them, in order to help keep their gut balanced and parasites in check. In today's world - many urban dwellings have no yards and even in suburban areas the landscape is not filled with the raw wild herbs that are needed. This is one reason why more and more people are turning to essential oils - essential oils for both themselves and their beloved pets.

“In one study, 77 percent of patients treated for enteric parasites were parasite free after taking oil of oregano in tablet form for six weeks. At this writing, it has inhibited the growth of at least ten different microbes, including Candida albicans (yeast).”

Clove Bud Oil

Clove oil, derived from the clove leaf is widely known as a herb, but clove oil has many uses in daily life, especially for ailments that typically strike. Some of the many benefits are, relieving tooth and gum irritations, moisturizers dry skin and treats other skin issues, improves blood circulation. It can also be used as an insect repellent.

At Aunt Lyn’s, we use clove oil for all the therapeutic reasons listed above. If not treated, dogs may lick and gnaw on their wounds, hot spots, itchy feet and ears. This does not aid healing. It can actually delay healing and cause infections. Clove in tiny amounts will deter the dog from licking and aid the healing process.

Be careful with using clove oil – and any essential oil – as it must be diluted properly. If you are interested In learning more begin here http://articles.mercola.com/herbal-oils/clove-bud-oil.

Yarrow

Yarrow is a plant that flowers similar to chamomile and chrysanthemum. It contains flavonoids, plant based chemicals that increase saliva and stomach acid which helps improve digestion. Traditionally, it is used in three ways:

Yarrow is a powerhouse with regard to your dog’s medicinal needs. In our opinion, it is one of the best staples to have in your first aid kit and we use it often when blending remedies.

Here are a few of its benefits; antiseptic, anti-Inflammatory, astringent, analgesic, expectorant, insect repellant, and worm expeller.

Ginger

Ginger comes in two primary forms, fresh and ground. Whatever ginger you choose, you can count on it doing great things for your health. The root is full of vitamins, minerals, and compounds that help your body grow and repair itself, and your brain to stay in tip top shape. The root is also packed with phenolic compounds that improve your digestive system. It is also able to reduce nausea and bolster your immune system. Additionally, it helps relieve muscle discomfort, reduce inflammation in joints, improves cognitive function, and reduce levels of bad cholesterol.

We love ginger for ourselves and our furry friends can benefit too. It can relieve arthritis, bloat, and studies have shown success using Ginger as a preventive in both cancer and heartworm. It is a terrific anti inflammatory and even can relieve nausea.

Lavender

The essential oil of lavender when applied externally treats joint pain, muscle aches, and a variety of skin conditions including insect stings, acne, eczema, and burns. Lavender essential oil when inhaled can relieve headaches, anxiety and stress. A tincture of lavender taken by mouth can relieve joint pain, depression, migraines, indigestion, and anxiety.

Our canine friends can benefit from lavender in a huge way. Of course, it is one of the more pleasing essential oil scents that also repels certain pesky bugs. Lavender from different parts of the world and different varieties can help calm agitated high anxiety or stress canines.

“Traditional treatments for travel-induced excitement in dogs may be time-consuming, expensive or associated with adverse effects. Aromatherapy in the form of diffused lavender odor may offer a practical alternative treatment …” (Wells, D.L. 2006. Aromatherapy for travel-induced excitement in dogs, JAVMA 229(6): 964–67.)

Rosemary

The Rosemary leaf and twigs of the rosemary plant are used for culinary and medicinal purposes. It is used as a spice when cooking and also used for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics. Traditionally, rosemary has been used medicinally to improve memory, relieve muscle pain and spasm, stimulate hair growth, and support the circulatory and nervous systems. Rosemary is often used in aromatherapy to increase concentration and memory, and to relieve stress.

Rosemary is one of many herbs that when blended properly can repel both fleas and tick. It is also a great spice to add to your dogs homemade food because it can boost his or her immune system.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice with a peppery flavor and mild smell. It is extremely popular as a seasoning, as well as a healthy and great remedy for many illnesses. It can help fight against obesity and it is used as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce joint and muscle pain caused by several diseases. It also treats bowel diseases, helps relieves cystic fibrosis, prevents some cancers, helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and protects your heart and liver.

Turmeric is a staple in Aunt Lyn's home, for herself and her dog friends. Turmeric has been thought to prevent cancer, to aid digestive issues, and to help clean teeth by keeping plaque away and bacteria that causes bad breath in our canine companions.

Basil

Basil is from a native plant originally from India. It is one of the most popular culinary herbs. While known for its many varieties, it is popular for its distinct aromas that come from their essential oils contained in its leaves. Medicinally, it has been known to help treat common colds, headaches, stomach disorders, inflammation, heart disease, various forms of poisoning, and malaria. Basil can be also used as an aromatic nerve tonic. It clears the head, relieves intellectual fatigue, and gives the mind strength and clarity.

Basil is another herb we sprinkle on our homemade dog food and treats. It helps our canines with inflammation, digestion, and fresh breathe!

So add this herb into your precious pet’s food.

Parsley

Parsley is a surprisingly healthy food for a number of reasons. Having been used for centuries, it is more than just a garnish. It is an incredibly healthy herb that contains a wide range of helpful vitamins.

It is full of vitamin C, which is best known for giving your immune system a boost. Parsley contains ample amounts of folic acid. Foods high in folic acid can help the body regulate blood pressure and produce and maintain cells.

Vitamin K is also found in parsley and is incredibly important nutrient in helping the body respond to injuries. Why?

Because it helps in the clotting process, giving the body a chance to stop the damage and begin the healing process.

Vitamin K has also been shown to help reduce the risk of bone damage and build bone durability. Parsley is known to aid in digestion, can reduce inflammation around the joints to reduce pain and could possibly act as a diuretic.

Using parsley for our dogs enables us to share many of the same health benefits listed above for people.

At Aunt Lyn's we always make sure to sprinkle parsley in our homemade dog food for an immune boost and for fresh, clean breath.

Eggshells

There are surprising uses for eggshells. They are known to be packed with protein. They also contain nutrients that promotes healthy joints, like collagen, chondroitin, glucosamine, and hyaluronic acid. The calcium rich shells can act as a natural supplement for certain animals. The gently abrasive shells can be used externally as an exfoliant. As a household cleaner, the abrasive particles will safely buff away stains and grease. The calcium in the shells can also help your plants grow faster and healthier, and take the bitterness out of your ground coffee.

Regarding our canine’s health, many people make the mistake of feeding their four legged companions either cooked or raw eggs (if the dog is on a raw diet) and then throwing out the eggshell. The eggshell contains not only beneficial vitamins but also helps balance the nutrients in the egg yolk and whites. Not including the eggshell reduces the beneficial effects of the egg and could potentially result in a depletion of the calcium reserve.

Another super benefit our dogs and pups can get from eggshells is the ability to naturally express their anal sacs. Having this occur naturally is always much better then doing manually expressing our dogs anal sacs, ourselves or having our veterinarians do it. Either way it is an unpleasant experience for us and our dog!

So add those eggshells!

Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal powder is an amazing substance and with many benefits. It adsorbs more poisons than any other substance known to mankind. As the absorption ability is one of the major benefits of activated charcoal, this substance is routinely used in hospitals and by physicians. It can do various things because of its ability to attract other substances to the surface and hold them there. This is called “adsorption” (not absorption). The powder is used for many uses such as cleansing the mouth and the digestive tract. Charcoal is used as a remedy when many different types of poisons have been swallowed. Physicians recognize activated charcoal’s benefits and use the substance for several purposes. To treat insect bites, poisoning, diarrhea, foot and mouth disease, disinfect and deodorize wounds, filter toxins from the blood in liver and kidney diseases. Additional uses are for treating acne and skin issues, indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, bowel diseases, and high blood pressure.

With our favorite furry canine pet partners, activated charcoal can be used to take the “sting” out of bee stings, fire ants, and other bug bites. It draws out the toxins that can cause a histamine reaction.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been a major component of alternative medicine for thousands of years. It is rich in nutrients making it a well-rounded food that will ensure your body has what it needs to be healthy. The bark contains a number of oils that provide the body with many benefits. Some of the benefits are that it controls blood pressure, boosts brain function, improves essential colon function, protects against heart disease, improves blood circulation, treats respiratory infections, helps prevent some cancers, reduces bad cholesterol, treats neurodegeneration diseases and alleviates arthritis pain.

Cinnamon is a “hot” oil and you need to be very careful when using on your dog. While all essential oils must be diluted with a carrier oil, it is even more important that cinnamon oil be diluted and not used at full strength.

With the proper essential oil blend, cinnamon can do wonders in keeping fleas and ticks away, and it also help boost the effectiveness in other natural blends in helping with respiratory and or allergy issues.

Chamomile

Two distinct plants, German and Roman chamomile, are both known as chamomile and are often used interchangeably. They both look like miniature daisies and are traditionally thought to possess similar medicinal benefits.

The modern use of chamomile dates back to 1921 when a German firm introduced a topical form. This cream became a popular treatment for a wide variety of skin disorders, including eczema, bedsores, skin inflammation caused by radiation therapy, and dermatitis.

Chamomile in the form of tea is said to reduce mild tension, stress, and aid in indigestion.

A medicinal use of chamomile in pet health is to reduce vomiting, especially pups who vomit when excited. It can also be used in many essential oil blends to calm anxious dogs.

Eucalyptus

The eucalyptus tree originated in Australia and Tasmania. There are many different varieties of eucalyptus, with somewhat different constituents. The most common type used medicinally is eucalyptus globules. Eucalyptus oil has a long history of use as a topical antiseptic. It has also been used as a lozenge, and with inhalation therapy for asthma, coughs, sore throats, and other respiratory conditions. Other combination therapies containing eucalyptus oil can be found in aromatherapy.

Eucalyptus leaves include tannins which are used for treatment of inflammation. The oil derived from the leaves and branch tips contain cineole, which is a natural antiseptic.

Some additional benefits are the relief of nasal congestion, headache, and overall malaise.

With regard to our dogs, eucalyptus can be used in blends to keep away dangerous fleas, ticks, and even those annoying horse flies

Castile

Castile soap contains vegetable-based ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, hemp oil, and jojoba oil along with water, and other essential oils. As they are based on vegetable oils rather than animal fat, pure castile soaps are suitable for vegans.

Castile soap is gentle on the environment as it is free of artificial foaming agents, fragrances, chemicals detergents, petrochemicals, and toxic antibacterial agents.

Aside from its super natural formulation, one of the biggest reasons to use castile soap is its versatility such as a nourishing body wash and healthy dog shampoo.

At Aunt Lyn's, we use environmentally and pet safe castile soap as the base in our exclusive Holistic Shampoo. Together with castile and our proprietary essential oil blend, our shampoo becomes not only a great smelling wash but an antibacterial, antiviral, and bug repealing powerhouse.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil is a type of essential oil commonly used in aromatherapy. Sourced from the peel of the citrus lemon plant, lemon essential oil is said to offer a number of health benefits.

Lemon essential oil is typically used to ease stress, fight fatigue, insomnia, and address conditions such as acne, athlete's foot, depression, warts, and varicose veins. In addition, lemon essential oil is said to stimulate the immune system, alleviate pain, and promote weight loss.

Some key benefits noted from available studies; lemon essential oil reduced anxiety, was effective in improving mood, and promoted the breakdown of body fat. When diluted with a carrier oil, a drop or two of lemon essential oil can be applied to the skin and added to your bath.

At Aunt Lyn's, lemon is used to ward off viral and bacterial maladies and as a general disinfectant when combined in our essential oil blends.

Dandelion

Dandelion is a Powerhouse Nutritional Source for your Canine:

This nearly perfect whole food source of vitamins and minerals is easily absorbed by the body and is a great supplement to any dog’s daily diet.

Whether you are using to boost the immune or as a preventive or to help a pet with an existing condition like  with Crones, Kidney Stones, Arthritis, Gall Bladder or Heart issues, Dandelion will help eliminate irritants and toxicity.  Have you notice gas, dandruff, skin issues ?

Nettle (Stinging Nettle)

Another Powerhouse nutritional supplement that helps canines in  a multitude of ways. Beside providing necessary vitamin and minerals Nettle is also antibacterial, and has antihistamine properties.

Nettle provides nutrients to the whole body without adding excess stress to the liver, kidneys and digestive system. Because of its high iron content, it is especially beneficial to dogs with anemia.

It is also an energy booster for dogs who are weak and lethargic due to chronic fatigue. The herb nourishes the body and balances the liver, glands, and nervous system.

The completely dried herb can safely be used long term as a tonic - just sprinkle it onto your dog's food.

Try Aunt Lyn’s K9 Essential Herb Blend which contains organic Nettle among other nutritional herbs beneficial to maintaining  your dogs  health.

Milk Thistle

Traditionally used herb that is widely accepted by conventional science to have significant medicinal value. It has been called “milk thistle” because of a feature of the leaves, which are prominently splashed with white spots.

 

Milk Thistle  contains naturally occuring holistic chemicals:

The mixture of these three substances is called silymarin.

 

Silymarin has recently been advocated for use in pets because the benefits that have been examined in humans have also been approved as beneficial for pets. It can be used in dogs, cats, horses, goats, ferrets, and rodents to aid in liver or kidney damage, hepatitis, jaundice, leptospirosis, and parvovirus recovery.

 

Milk Thistle is also is a powerful preventive and restorative

First, milk thistle is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants protect us from chemicals in our bodies called free radicals. 

Additionally researchers have found that milk thistle can actually prevent or reduce medication induced liver damage. If you have been giving your pet medication and are concerned about the aftermath of chemicals residing in the body, milk thistle will help flush those out.

 

What about Allergies?

If the liver has been weakened due to a bevy of reasons, it is unable to break down toxins. In order to combat allergens, the body produces histamine. The liver plays a role in this process; it removes the histamine from the body. If the liver is weakened and congested with toxins, the liver struggles and histamine builds up in the body, leading to more allergic reactions.

Milk Thistle is also used to prevent and as a curative aid for Pancreatitis Kidney Disease and decrease the effects of Cancer.

This is way Milk Thistle is included in Aunt Lyn’s K9 Essential Dry Herb Blend, along with the other nutrients contained in these proprietary blend Aunt Lyn’s cover the bases on Allergies, Liver, Kidney, Gastrointestinal issues, as well as a powerhouse Immune Booster.

 

 

Ginger – Helps Nausea, Bloat, Arthritis, to name a few. Its Inflammation reducing properties are well documented. Studies have also shown it to be used as a preventive for certain Cancers, as well as Heartworm Prevention.

Aunt Lyn’s  K9 Essential Dry Herb Blend includes  Ginger for all its beneficial properties. 

Oregano is a great Herb for your dog and tasty! Oregano is high in antioxidants, flavonoids and research has shown it to have  antimicrobial and antifungal properties. This herb has been used to help with digestive problems both as prevention and a curative for, stomach upset, diarrhea,  gas, heartburn, bloating.

Green Teas

You may not know it but all Green Teas are not the same. Some have medicinal properties, whether preventive or curative, that address specific health issues and other green teas address other issues.

 

Aunt Lyn’s uses several kind of Green Teas, all organically decaffeinated  and each with a specific preventive and/or curative property.

 

Green tea’s provide anti-oxidants, and can aid with digestive health. Others promote fresher breath or help  with digestion. Other Green tea’s can also help reduce cholesterol and high blood pressure. Our Green tea blend  contained in Aunt Lyn’s K9 Essential Dry Herb Blend, targets all of the above but with special properties to address Allergy issue and reduce histamine.
