What is Lyme Disease and what are the symptoms?
Lyme disease is an infectious tick-borne disease that mainly affects dogs, although it is not unknown in cats and other animals. It is caused by a type of bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi.
Arthritis may develop in the short to long term and a few dogs develop severe progressive renal disease, which often leads to death.
The most common initial symptoms of Lyme disease include:
* Joint Swelling
What is the conventional treatment?
The conventional treatment of Lyme disease usually involves antibiotics (usually for a period of between 14 to 30 days, but sometimes extended antibiotic use is recommended). In fact, a notable symptom of Lyme disease is that it does usually respond to appropriate antibiotics.
However antibiotics have a general weakening effect on the immune system which can cause further problems, especially in the long-term.
Topical insecticides that repel ticks and vaccination against Lyme disease are also often recommended. However these can lead to excess toxin build-up and cause further weakening of the immune system in the long term.
How can natural remedies help?
As part of a holistic approach to treating your pet, natural remedies can help to build and strengthen your pet's immune system (a very important factor in Lyme disease), encourage the elimination of toxins and generally improve the overall health of your animal.
Natural remedies can also help to relieve specific symptoms associated with Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses such as liver problems, infection, inflammation and fever.
Used in conjunction with conventional treatment they can support and strengthen your pet's immune system and lessen the toxic effects of medication.
What is TF-Defense?
TF-Defense combines herbal and homeopathic ingredients which are known to assist in the effective treatment of Lyme Disease and other tick borne illnesses in pets.
It will also help to strengthen immune system functioning to help your pet fight against the infection.
TF-Defense, and companion remedies, are a natural alternative to the lengthy antibiotic treatment often prescribed for the treatment of Lyme Disease - which often leads to a weakening of the immune system and other related health problems.
However, TF-Defense may also be used along with conventional veterinarian treatment for Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
What are the ingredients of TF-Defense?
PetAlive TF-Defense contains the following 100% herbal and homeopathic ingredients:
Carduus marianus (Milk Thistle) is regarded as one of the most important herbal liver tonics and restoratives. Medical use of Milk Thistle may be traced back more than 2000 years. More recently, Milk Thistle has been subject to many clinical trials which clearly demonstrate its effectiveness. Scientific analysis of Milk Thistle shows that it contains a flavonoid complex called silymarin, which is largely responsible for the medical benefits of this herb. Silymarin is a powerful anti-oxidant and can block the entrance of toxins into the liver and remove toxins at the cellular level, thereby resulting in regeneration of liver cells and improved liver functioning. This would have a direct impact on overall systemic health as the liver is one of the most important organs in the body and is often affected by Lyme Disease which leads to further weakening of the system
Crotalus hor. (C200) is a proven homeopathic remedy which is very effective for the treatment of any illness that includes hemorrhage as well as severe septic infections, especially when there is a breakdown of red blood cells (leading to severe strain on the liver and possible jaundice.)
China (C6) is a homeopathic remedy well known for its beneficial effect on fever and exhaustion, especially following illness or severe fluid loss. It is also a very effective remedy for malaria.
Ferrum Phosphate C6 (Ferrum Phos.) is one of the most important biochemic tissue salts to use when there is any infection or inflammation in the body. It helps to distribute iron and oxygen throughout the body, strengthen cell walls and fight infection.
Aconite (C6) A homeopathic remedy which is often used to treat conditions of shock and anxiety. It is also prescribed for otherwise healthy pets who develop a sudden illness of acute nature, often accompanied by fever, fear, anxiety and panic attacks.

What else can I do to help my pet?
* Prevention is better than cure. Check your pets carefully and regularly for ticks especially after they have been walking in potentially tick-infested areas such as long grass.
* Toxins and chemicals can have a general weakening effect on your pet's immune system so avoid exposure to them as far as possible. These include pesticides, herbicides, commercial flea collars, flea powder, insecticides and second-hand cigarette smoke.
* The liver is often affected by Lyme disease. Ask your veterinarian to explain the side effects all medications that are prescribed for your dog. If there is a chance of liver damage then find out if there is an alternative medication or if not, what you can do to minimize the effects of liver damage.
* Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food (preferably organic). The liver is involved in getting rid of toxins in the body so the less chemical additives and preservatives in your pet's diet, the more his liver's workload decreases.
* Acupressure massage is helpful in improving immune functioning
* Use Immunity and Liver Support capsules to boost your pet's immune functioning and resistance against disease and infection
* Vaccination is often recommended for the prevention of Lyme disease. However talk to a holistic vet before immunizing your pet as over-vaccination may stress the immune system unnecessarily.
