Are we compromising our pet's organ functions through the water we are giving them? This book describes the basic supplement needed by our animals to keep them healthy.
A car battery runs because of electrolytes. The health of your pet depends on electrolytes too. Each cell has electrical properties and electric potential much like that of a battery. The electron and electrical force facilitates life. This electrical force is transmitted through the nervous system through chemical neurotransmitters which are made from and stimulated by electrolytes and macro (trace) minerals
When humans think of electrolytes, they immediate visualize rehydrating the body after a sweaty workout with a solution that is predominately sodium and potassium. The sports drink market is huge. But, when we think of our pets, do we want to give them Gatorade or Pedialyte to keep their electrical system running? This book reveals the absolutely first supplement you should give your animal to not only prevent dehydration, but to enchance brain function thereby helping all the body systems to work better.

Electrolytes, more than just for rehydration
Trace-minerals and brain function
The need for trace-minerals in a pet’s diet
Is my water and pet food mineral deficient?
Pets have thought processes similar to humans. Their brain perceives, thinks and reacts creating a response. Like in their human caregivers, the process by which all of this happens depends on the brain to fire in the proper manner and to send signals through the nervous system. This process not only controls all of the body’s functions, but the animal's emotional response and ability to escape, hunt, bark, purr and sits on your lap. If this network of nerves is short-circuited, transmis-sions will go awry and a breakdown of communication will occur. This will result in behavioral, physical and emotional problems as it does in humans.
Electrolyte-forming trace minerals supply oxygen for peak brain function and proper nervous system re-sponse. Only electrolytes can supply the energy for the firing of micro-electric impulses across the synapses of the brain. The body uses oxygen to turn nutrients into energy through process of bio-oxidation – electrolytes help the oxygen create a chemical reaction that ulti-mately allows the body to burn the nutrients as fuel.
Many times we look for a reason for a health issue in our pets and forget that maybe something is sending the wrong message that makes the organ “misfire”. Heart problems can be affected by an electrical response that may have been interrupted. Muscle activity (twitching is a good example) depends on proper neural response as does just about any body function.
