For as long as I can remember, pets have been one of the great sources of joy in my life. Whether it was our family dog growing up or my own dogs that I used to bring to work with me, animals have always had a special place in my heart.
One of my favorites, a Chow Chow named Chewie, was especially loved around the office. She never failed to bring a smile to my staff or my patients. Most of all, she never failed to lift my spirit. No matter how challenging my day was, seeing the unconditional love in her eyes made all my stress just melt away.
I’m sure you know what I mean.
Our pets give us so much. They go with us on adventures, comfort us when we’re down, and help us heal when we’re broken. Every day, they remind us that life should be lived in the moment and with enthusiasm. And most importantly, they give and receive love—no questions asked.
It’s no surprise, then, that we want to give our four-legged companions the best and longest lives we can. This is the reason why I started Ageless Paws.
Helping Your Pet Age the Healthiest Way Possible
As a cardiologist who’s spent a career helping human patients, I’ve learned a lot of things about aging and how to get the most out of our years.
One of them is just how important our pets are to our own health. For example, did you know that heart attack survivors have better recoveries when they come home to a pet? Or that pets help keep our stress hormones in check, which protects us from disease?
I’ve also learned that much of what I know to be true about keeping people healthy can be used to help keep pets healthy, too.
When Chewie started getting up in years, I made sure she got plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from healthy fish and nutritional supplements, to keep her joints flexible. I also started giving her regular doses of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to support the ability of her cells (especially the ones in her heart) to produce and burn energy. I’d seen incredible results prescribing CoQ10 for my human patients. And though I’m not a veterinarian, I saw a noticeable difference in Chewie, as well.
Here at Ageless Paws, it’s my goal to share information like this with you—to help you understand not only the health challenges that your dog or cat may face, but also the healthy, natural options you have for addressing them.
Helping You Find the Best Pet Health Products
When I first started prescribing nutritional supplements for my patients, one of the biggest challenges I faced was finding appropriate products made by reputable sources. In some cases, there simply weren’t any—so I worked with formulation experts to make my own.
Today’s world of pet nutritional supplements is not that different. Walk into any pet store, and you’ll find a handful of products that look like they may work, but their quality and efficacy isn’t always clear.
As a pet parent, that’s a risk I don’t want to take!
At Ageless Paws, though, you can breathe easy. Our products are curated from the healthiest options I can find. With the exception of our human-grade liquid CoQ10 for dogs and cats which I gave to my own pets for years, all of our nutritional supplements are veterinarian-formulated. I also have them evaluated by veterinarians to make absolutely sure that they don’t include potentially harmful ingredients—and more importantly, that the other ingredients are appropriate and actually supportive to your pet.
Supplements aren’t the only thing you’ll find here, though. We also carry treats that are as close to nature as possible. That means maximum nutrition for your pet and full confidence for you, knowing the treat you’re sharing is also good for your pet.
When it comes to your pet, you don’t want to cut corners. The time they spend with us is so precious…Cherish your pet and the emotional rewards you get back are immeasurable.
From my heart to yours,
