Natura Petz Life's An Itch - Respiratory, Allergy & Skin Support
Life's An Itch - No More Sneezing or Wheezing, Respiratory, Allergy and Skin Support* (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
Do you have an itchy, allergic dog or cat? You're not alone! One in three vet visits are related to allergies and food sensitivities. Did you know that your pet can develop a food sensitivity to being fed the same food and/or protein year after year? Or that your dog or cat might be allergic to something in your home, such as scented dryer sheets or room deodorizers? Identifying the allergen source can be maddening, and meanwhile, your pet is miserable and you need a solution now.
Life's An Itch is used by holistic veterinarians to help address symptoms related to all types of acute and chronic allergies, as it has been proven to help relieve and help eliminate food allergies AND allergy sensitivities, to help modulate inflammation and help modulate histamine and mast cell response in the animal body, may help limit and potentially help disable allergen triggers once an allergy has occurred, may help dismantle the itch/scratch cycle that your dog or cat seems trapped in as well as help address respiratory infections such as bronchitis or asthma.* (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
Life's An Itch! may also be used to help relieve symptoms related to all types of allergies, including Acute Moist (i.e. skin, hot spots); Atopic (i.e. flea, itching, sneezing); Contact (i.e. rash, hair loss); Environmental (i.e. smoke, household cleaners, dryer sheets) and Food allergies (i.e. corn, wheat, soy, colorants, additives, certain proteins.) Life's An Itch contains natural anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, anti-histamine, immune boosting, anti-fungal, antiseptic, antimicrobial and decongestant properties. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
Life's An Itch! contains a variety of healthy, natural plant chemicals including antioxidants, soyasaponins, essential amino and fatty acids, novel flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, choline, macro and micro minerals, alkaloids and coumarin.
Other holistic applications include use to help address and relieve symptoms related to hot spots, skin rashes, scratching, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, rubbing, foot chewing, biting, fur pulling, pain and inflammation by working from the inside out to help cool allergen response.
In addition to addressing allergies, Life's An Itch contains a host of natural ingredients, including adaptogenic plants which work to boost or balance immunity as needed by the body; and antioxidant content may optimize general health and may even help prevent disease.
As a pet parent, you need to realize that healing takes time. Your pet should experience symptomatic relief relatively quickly but it can take a few months to help correct the overall trigger of allergies since herbs heal from the inside out and must stimulate the body systems to heal.* (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)

Alcohol free extract, including Gayana Manayupa, Pulmonaria, Vulgare (Fennel), Eucalyptus and Propolis Honey (newborn puppies and kittens should not use this product as it contains Propolis (honey)
Gayana: The leaves contain naturally occurring coumarins. Coumarin has an anti-coagulant and blood thinning effect and is a precursor to Coumadin drugs. Consult with your Vet if your pet is taking Coumadin drugs or if Coumadin anticoagulant type drugs are contraindicated for your pet's condition.
Pulmonaria: Pulmonaria might decrease the effectiveness of ciprofloxacin (antibiotic, Cipro) the body absorbs. To avoid this interaction, take pulmonaria at least one hour after ciprofloxacin (Cipro). Taking pulmonaria along with estrogen pills might decrease the effects of estrogen pills.
Eucalyptus: This plant has been documented with hypoglycemic effects. Pets with hypoglycemia and/or diabetes should only use this plant under the care and direction of a qualified Vet or owner who can monitor blood glucose levels. Eucalyptus may be possibly contraindicated during pregnancy. In herbal medicine systems, the plant is used as a sedative and may potentiate (strengthen) the effects of other sedatives, pain killers and barbiturates.
Vulgare: None reported. Vulgare may possibly exaggerate allergies to celery, carrot and mugwort.
Propolis Honey: Animals with an allergy to bee stings (bee venom), intolerance to honey, or allergy to ragweed/chrysanthemums should avoid bee pollen products. Honey has been known to cause small to severe allergic reactions in animals allergic to bees/pollen. Reaction can include anaphylaxis, an acute allergic response, which may be life threatening.
Gayana: Ayapana may enhance or increase the effect of blood-thinning medications.
Pulmonaria: Estrogen-sensitive cancers are cancers that are affected by estrogen levels in the body. Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is used to help treat and prevent estrogen-sensitive cancers and Pulmonaria might decrease the effectiveness of tamoxifen (Nolvadex).
Eucalyptus: May potentiate insulin and diabetic medications and barbiturate drugs. Taking eucalyptus along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of some medications. Talk to your Vet before you begin administering Eucalyptus if your pet is diabetic or is using insulin or liver medications.
Vulgare: May increase drowsiness caused by some drugs such as benzodiazepines, lorazepam (Ativan) or diazepam (Valium), barbiturates such as Phenobarbital, narcotics such as codeine and some anti-depressants.
Propolis Honey: None reported.
Gayana: Contains natural coumarins which may enhance or increase the effect of blood-thinning medications.
Pulmonaria: Do not use if your pet is pregnant or nursing.
Eucalytpus: This product contains Eucalyptus Extract, which is safe. (Eucalyptus oil is UNSAFE when it is either taken by mouth or applied directly to the skin without first being diluted. Eucalyptus Extract and Oil is not the same product.) Developing research suggests eucalyptus leaf might lower blood sugar. Use caution if your pet has diabetes or is taking medications for diabetes and monitor blood sugar levels closely. Discontinue use at least 2 weeks prior to surgery as blood sugar control might be difficult during and after surgery. Use caution if your pet is pregnant or nursing.
Vulgare: Some dogs/cats can have allergic skin reactions to Vulgare. Pets that are allergic to plants such as celery, carrot, and mugwort may also be allergic to vulgare. Vulgare can also make skin extra sensitive to sunlight. If your pet has a heart disorder, use caution due to potential sedative effects. Use caution during pregnancy or nursing. One study suggests vulgare aggravates liver damage in animals while another study supports liver regeneration in animals with parts of their liver removed. If your pet has liver disease or liver damage, talk to your Vet prior to starting Vulgare.
Propolis Honey: Do not use if your pet has hypersensitivity or allergies to pollen. Consult with your Vet if your pet has blood disorders or liver disease. Hypersensitivity reaction includes pruritus, swelling, sneezing, anaphylaxis, hypereosinophilia, and eosinophilic gastroenteritis consisting of nausea, and diarrhea. Animals with an allergy to bee stings (bee venom), intolerance to honey, or allergy to ragweed/chrysanthemums should avoid bee pollen products. Honey has been known to cause small to severe allergic reactions in animals allergic to bees/pollen. Reaction can include anaphylaxis, an acute allergic response, which may be life threatening.
