As you suffer anxiety and stress caused by everyday life events so do your canine companions  and feline friends. Pets suffer skin problems caused by environmental or food allergies. Herbal Pet has a natural solution to sooth your stressed out animal and give them relief from sore itch skin.

Cat and dog anxiety
Cat and dogs can also experience anxiety, fear, over-excitability, lack of concentration and even depression. Separation anxiety is a very common problem in dogs. Cat and dog anxiety during thunderstorms or fireworks is also a huge problem.
The Serenity Formula was formulated in order to naturally and safely address these problems.

This is how it works:

  • Tyrosine and 5-HTP are both amino acids, naturally present in a pet’s diet. But, in an anxious pet, they have a gently calming effect. 5-HTP is the direct precursor to serotonin. And serotonin is the calm, happy chemical in your pet’s brain.
  • Inositol, a B vitamin, is one of the most underused and underrated vitamins. Inositol has outperformed pharmaceutical antidepressants in clinical trials for humans. It works in the same way for pets.
  • Magnesium, if deficient in your pet’s diet, produces symptoms of anxiety. I’ve added chelated (because chelated minerals are better absorbed) magnesium to correct this.
  • A blend of gently calming herbs such as chamomile, well known for its ability to calm both mind and stomach.
About Serenity Formula : A blend of herbs, vitamins, amino acids and minerals formulated to gently calm your pet in stressful situations, without causing drowsiness.

Contains : Contains 5-hydroxytryptophan and tyrosine (amino acids which act as antidepressants), thiamine (a vitamin which has been found to have a calming effect), magnesium (chelated for better absorption) and herbs such as chamomile (gently soothe without causing drowsiness). Use this product daily or in special circumstances only, whatever the needs of the individual pet.

Dose : One half teaspoon (small breeds, cats) to one heaped teaspoon (large breeds) per day, sprinkled on the food. One 200g tub will last one large dog about 1 month and a small dog or cat about 2 months.

Use this if your pet:
  • is going to be in a stressful situation ( moving house, shows, travelling).
  • experiences anxiety during Guy Fawkes, Divali, New Years’s Eve or thunderstorms
  • suffers from a nervous condition or shows nervous behaviour (excessive barking, whining).
  • is underweight (due to nerves).
  • has undergone a lot of stress in the past  (rescue dogs)
Recommended Retail Price : R159 / 200 gr tub
Stockist : You can buy The Herbal Pet products from a number of pet shops and vets or from The Herbal Pet online store:

Cat and dog allergies
  • More than ever before, our dogs are suffering from allergies. Causes range from food allergies to allergic reactions to chemicals in the environment. Typical treatments are steroids ( Cortisone), antibiotics and antihistamines. Often, giving these drugs is an appropriate and necessary action.
  • There are no simple answers, but allergies can be helped by:
  • Feeding a better diet – fresh, varied food is best, or a high-quality, low-quantity protein food
  • Washing frequently with natural, non-toxic shampoos
  • Keeping dust levels down
  • Switching to a ceramic feeding bowl, not plastic
  • Supplementing with vitamins, minerals and certain herbs
  • Herbs and vitamins which have been shown to help with allergic conditions are:
  • Vitamin C
  • Citrus extracts
  • Echinacea
  • Garlic
  • The Herbal Pet has combined all of these with a multivitamin base in Allergy Formula
 About : A blend of herbs, vitamins and minerals formulated to treat allergies and skin conditions, as well as give a general immune boost.

Contains : Herbs, Ginseng, Sutherlandia (a proudly South African herb, effective in several conditions), Echinacea (been proven to increase the immune response to disease), garlic (been shown to be more effective than 9 kinds of antibiotics) and a citrus extract .

Dose : One half teaspoon (small breeds) to one heaped teaspoon (large breeds) per day, sprinkled on the food. One 200g tub will last one large dog about 1 month and a small dog or cat about 2 months.

Use this if your pet:
  • itches and scratches a lot
  • creates sores by scratching
  • suffers from allergic reactions to food, grass, etc.
  • is into contact with strange dogs or cats (kennels and shows, )
  • has hives or a rash or raised bumps on the skin
  • is recovering from an illness
  • This is a nutritional product and is not intended as a substitute for veterinary products or advice.
  • Discontinue immediately at any sign of an adverse reaction.
  • Not for use in pregnant bitches.

Mani Madness with Nail Candy Mani Pedi Pen

Mani-Pedi-Pens are an innovative and unique way to design and create airbrushed style artwork using nail polish in a pen form.  This allows the user to draw on their own nails, using our patented “art tip.”

Mani-Pedi-Pen has both a brush for painting your nails and an art tip for drawing! The secret is in the construction of the “art tip.”  It provides functionality of the plastic squeeze bottle which gives each design a unique touch.

By gently squeezing the bottle while either drawing or dragging the pen, this allows you to create any type of design you desire.  This product is great for all ages. Mani-Pedi-Pen gives you the ability to let yourself be inspired and recreate the most simplistic or intricate designs.

Mani-Pedi-Pens include:
Two colours that each have a nail polish applicator brush and our patented “Art Tip” for each individual color, so you can add nail dazzle brilliance and fun for hours!

Nail art is the latest fashion trend. Far and away the best product to do nail art with is the very modern, practical and high quality Mani-Pedi-Pen. Filled with salon quality nail polish free of DBP, Toulene and Formaldehyde, each two colour pen contains a brush (for base painting) and a designer “micro-tip” for detail, all in one patented and convenient unit.

Gently squeezing the bottle (while writing or drawing with the pen) allows one to create any type of design. Mani-Pedi-Pen fans can craft any level of designs because it is all dots and lines! This in turn inspires fans to develop their skill from simplistic flowers and touch ups to the most intricate of designs. The Mani-Pedi-Pen helps translate fashion trends from all age groups modified to nail designs.

'Everyone wants the “red carpet” look but it’s too expensive! Why not achieve the same look
from your favourite designers and transform your finger tips at the same time!' Marlize vd Merwe (Brand Manager, Bajo Brands.)
