Liquid Herbal Supplements

Directions for use – Add to feed

Hilton Gold Solutions – Add to feed or orally syringe

A measuring scoop is included in every tub or refill bag of our dry herbal supplements and we advise you to allow at least three weeks for complete absorption.

These products are concentrated, fasteracting, and economical. They are packed in an easy-to-use sturdy plastic bottle with an integrated measuring tank marked from 10–25 ml. A 1L bottle will last a 16.2hh horse up to 33 days based on a dosage of 30mls per day.

Full ingredients together with directions for use and storage instructions are given on the back of each tub or bag. Dosages as follows: Up to 12.2 hh (128cm) 1 scoop daily 12.2hh – 14.2hh (128cm – 148cm) 2 scoops daily 14.2hh – 15.2hh (148cm – 158cm) 3 scoops daily

Some owners may prefer our Gold solutions because they are more quickly absorbed by the digestive system. With picky feeders they can be given directly into the horse’s mouth by syringe, and for larger horses they are a more economical way of feeding a herbal supplement.

15.2hh – 16.2hh (158cm – 168cm) 4 scoops daily

Full ingredients together with directions for use and storage instructions are given on the back of each bottle. Dosage as follows:

Natural Supplements for Dogs Dry Herbal Formulations

Gold Liquid Products

Directions for use

Directions for use

An appropriate measuring scoop is included in each of our dry herb mix packs. A full ingredients listing plus directions for use and storage are printed on the back of each pack.

Our Gold products are made from pure herbal tinctures mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar. Some dog owners may prefer to use the liquid format as it is assimilated faster by the dog’s digestive system and so produces a quicker response.

Quantities are related to your dog’s bodyweight and are as follows: 5kgs / 11lbs Half a 2.5ml scoop per day 10kgs / 22lbs 1 x 2.5ml scoop per day 20kgs / 44lbs 2 x 2.5ml scoops per day 30kgs / 66lbs 3 x 2.5ml scoops per day 40kgs / 88lbs 4 x 2.5ml scoops per day. As a rough guide, when fed at 3 level scoops daily, a 125g bag of our proprietary blends will last approximately 6 weeks, however this can vary slightly depending on the mix. Always introduce the herbs to your dog’s food very gradually, building up to the full dosage over a period of several days. Remember herbs are a gentle therapy so allow 2–3 weeks for complete absorption of dried herbs. Note: If possible try and split the daily amount of herbs between two meals. Dogs have a very fast metabolism and by feeding the herbs twice daily the body has a better opportunity to absorb the herbs’ active constituents.

Some customers may like to start on the liquid product and then switch to the equivalent dry mix for longer term use, which can be more economical. Canine Gold liquid products should be added to your dog’s food and, if possible try, and split the daily amount between two feeds. If your dog is very fussy the Gold products can be syringed into your dog’s mouth. Our Gold liquid products are packed in easy-to-use, sturdy, plastic bottles with an integrated measuring tank marked from 10ml–25ml. Full ingredients listing with feeding guide and storage recommendations are provided on the label. Quantities are related to your dog’s bodyweight and are as follows: 5kg (11lbs) – 1 - 2ml twice a day 10kg (22lbs) – 2 - 4ml twice a day 20kg (44lbs) – 4 - 8ml twice a day 30kg (66lbs) – 6 - 12ml twice a day 40kg (88lbs) – 8 - 16ml twice a day.

Natural Supplements for Cats Product Formulation Hilton cat products are formulated using a combination of the highest quality 1:3 herbal tinctures blended with sweet-tasting vegetable glycerine for exceptional palatability.

Dosage Guide Give 4 drops per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight twice daily. This means that each 50 ml bottle will last an average size 4kg (10lb) cat 30 days using 16 drops twice daily.

If possible try to give the herbs on an empty stomach, preferably 30 minutes before food to help the body assimilate them more quickly. The product can either be dropped straight into the cat’s mouth, added to a small amount of food or broth, or dropped onto the cat’s paws where he or she will lick it off. We have had no problem getting cats to take the products using one or other of these methods, even our ferocious farm cat will happily lick it off her paws!

Our cats are part of our family and as such we want to be confident our home offers them a safe and relaxed environment in which to hunt, eat, groom and sleep as this is the natural cycle of life for every cat. Unfortunately some of our pets have not had a good start in life and come to us after being abandoned or badly treated. Needless to say these cats will have their own emotional problems and who can blame them if they appear fearful, anxious, aggressive or reluctant to trust us again? Cats are natural hunters, one only has to see how young kittens chase after a ball of paper, ambush us from behind a cardboard

box or pounce on a toy mouse to realise that it is hard wired in their DNA to chase insects, birds, leaves, feathers or a stuffed toy. This fact is recognised by the pet industry and there are now literally thousands of commercially available toys that mimic the scampering and flitting movements of mice, birds or insects. To maintain both physical and mental health, it is vital for cats to follow their instincts and spend time each day ‘hunting’ even if this is playing with a toy mouse or chasing a ‘wand’ toy. Regular play will ensure a cats mind is kept stimulated preventing boredom, relieving stress and keeping him/her fit and healthy.

Kitty Kalm We all try to do the very best for our pets, providing a healthy diet, mental and physical stimulation and all the care and love we can give them. Unfortunately despite our best laid plans outside factors can upset our companions, loud noises, fireworks, changes in routine, the introduction of a new cat or baby can all impact on their emotional wellbeing and subsequently their physical health. When these things happen, your cat may find it hard to adapt and relax. This is when Kitty Kalm can offer extra support by providing just the right combination of calming soothing herbs to help maintain a steady, calm outlook and relaxed behaviour. Available in: 50ml and 100ml dropper bottle

Mobility & Seniors Cats are wonderful companions not only are they both beautiful and enigmatic but an absolute joy to watch with their innate sense of balance and grace. Unfortunately, however carefully we look after them we cannot protect them from the advances of age and the impact it will ultimately have on their health. Cats are like us and as they age their organs, musculoskeletal system, immune response and

respiratory system will just not be as effective as it was when they were younger. Much as you may want to, you cannot turn back the hands of time, but you can use natural products to help support and maintain healthy supple joints, muscles, internal organs, digestion, immunity and overall health ensuring you maintain the very best quality of life for your companion.

Kitty Senior Some cats seem to stay ‘kitten like’ all their lives, but even so the passage of time will impact on all cats as they age. For our Kitty Senior product we have selected a number of herbal extracts and blended them with sweet tasting vegetable glycerine to help support, mobility, a healthy heart, good effective circulation, immunity, digestion as well as healthy liver and kidney function in the older cat.

POULTRY & BIRDS

Poultry & Birds

Natural Supplements for Birds In the wild birds know instinctively how to selfselect a wide variety of plants, herbs, grasses, seeds, roots, and fruits to help them maintain overall good health and freedom from internal parasites. Unfortunately our domesticated birds may not have access to these same health-giving plants and this inability to obtain fresh plants and seeds may ultimately affect their overall health and fitness. When you then add to this the stresses of breeding, showing, egg production, internal parasites, and the moult, it is no wonder their health may suffer. Our products are suitable not only for caged birds but also for poultry, as more and more people are keeping chickens or re-homing battery hens for their own egg production. We have our own small flock and know just how quickly they become part of the family, working their way into your heart with their own quirky characters. You will want to do the best for them so they can do the best for you! We believe that by using the appropriate herbal supplements, in conjunction with a good diet, clean hygienic housing, and freedom to exercise, we can greatly enhance the health of poultry and birds. Herbs will reconnect them to their origins, enabling them to maintain prime health as their wild cousins do. Please note that all the products featured in this catalogue are equally suitable for poultry or caged birds.
