THE SIMPLE SAFE WAY TO HELP CONTROL FLEAS IN YOUR HOME The MyFleaTrap is a cordless, lightweight and portable flea trap designed for use indoors and in semi-enclosed, external, covered areas. The capture range is 12m and beyond. (Operates best in darkened areas.) The fleas are attracted to the light and trapped on an adhesive disc that you can check on a daily basis. The trap comes with one replacement disc and additional adhesive sheets are available for purchase. (Refill Pack: 2 adhesive sheets.) For best results the trap should be used in conjunction with regular vacuuming - hard floors as well as carpets. Concentrate on dark areas when vacuuming such as under furniture and carpet edges. Also wash all pet bedding using a HOT cycle and treat animals with natural flea products routinely to help control fleas naturally without harming their health or the health of your family.

SHOULD I RUG MY HORSE? This depends if you are looking at rugging from the horse’s point of view or your own. Most horses don’t need rugs to keep warm, so even though we may be feeling the cold, that doesn’t mean your horse is necessarily cold. Horses have the ability to regulate their body temperature. Their hair stands up in cold weather to trap air and warm the horse and lies flat in warm weather to cool them. Rugging interferes with this and in some instances the horse may be colder. We are able to take off layers of clothing throughout the day as we need to. But sadly I see far too many horses left with winter rugs on during the day when the sun comes out and it warms up. Some horses have rugs left on 24/7 and there are those that rarely get them taken off. Special needs horses may require rugging such as elderly, sick, thin or clipped horses and those suffering

from “ itch”. Horses do require adequate shelter from the elements, especially if they are not rugged. This means having a shelter such as a shed for shade and wind protection, large trees or hedges in the paddock and enough room to allow plenty of movement so they can run around as desired. Once you do start rugging a horse, then you need to continue as they become reliant on you to take rugs on and off as the temperature varies. Overheating is a much bigger problem for horses than most people realize. Leaving horses rugged 24/7 also reduces their ability to synthesize Vitamin D from sunlight which is necessary for maintaining normal calcium metabolism. So if you do rug your horse, please ensure that you take it off during nice weather and allow them to get adequate sunshine. They will love you even more for it! If you don’t really need to rug, then let them grow a thick winter coat to keep them warm at night and cool during the day... and wait to see them

CAT FLU RELIEF “My cat was diagnosed with cat flu about 12 months ago and after ongoing vet treatment, she kept getting relapses on and off. After using the Greenpet remedies and changing her diet, no more problems and her symptoms cleared up really fast.” GREENPET MUSSEL TREATS “Our 2 dogs LOVE these! They have 1 or 2 each day, and if I run out, I notice their joints stiffen up a bit. Only problem is they love them a little too much! Twice now, I have left them out only to find the dogs found them and ate the whole packet! :) They were certainly agile that week.” BIO-COMPATIBILITY TEST “Our dog Smudge had red itchy skin all the time. We tried everything to solve the problem - antihistamines, homeopathic remedies, creams and ointments. So on advice I put Smudge on a special diet of lamb, chicken, vegies and rice. Nothing worked. In desperation I did this bio-compatability test and found out that she was allergic to lamb, rice, broccoli - all the things I was feeding her. So armed with this information I changed Smudge’s diet to BARF chicken food and Vet’s All Natural Sensitive Skin Mix - and hey presto she was better within a couple


of weeks. Her skin has been good for a year now.” GREENPET CHIA SEEDS “I have been giving this to my horse for a month now and his coat has never l o o ke d so good. Fantastic product and great service, thanks.” MY FLEA TRAP “I just purchased one of these because we seem to be constantly working on controlling fleas on our dog and cat. We bathe them regularly and use flea sprays but couldn't seem to break the cycle. We never see any fleas in our house so I didn't expect to catch many in the trap but after the first night, we had about 5 fleas, then a few more each night for about 5 days, now we are not seeing any new one's. At last a simple, non-toxic way to help control fleas in our environment. Thanks so much!” VETS ALL NATURAL COMPLETE MIX “About 2 years ago i remember saying to my partner to take it easy on our 10 year old lab, she is on her last legs so don’t force her to walk too far. Well, 2 years later and after being on vets all natural weight loss for most of that she is happier and healthier than I have seen her since she was about five. She now walks twice a day and the walk that we were doing back then has doubled and

instead of struggling at the half way point she looks like she could go again. I mix this with raw kangaroo and she loves it. Not just more energy either though, her coat is immaculate, and for a 12 year old lab it’s really quite amazing how good it looks. So if you’re not sure about this stuff, have a go, give it 6 months to a year and I’m positive you will be happy you did. So will your dog”. ANIMAL COMMUNICATION – Amanda De Warren “Amanda was able to contact my Lola after she passed away. Amanda could name my past animals that Lola was with."She is with Nikki" who was my first dog as a child. Amanda described my loved animals characters exactly. If you are grieving a lost pet I think Amanda can help you.”

KINESIOLOGY + ENERGY HEALING Anne Winning “Our cat was a rescue pet whom we had the pleasure of bringing into our family just under five years ago. Throughout the last five years our cat has suffered off and on (more on than off) with chronically itchy skin. She picks at it for hours, pulling off huge tufts of fur, creating infected scabs which require antibiotics. Recently she has also taken to soiling her own bed. Anne diagnosed anxiety and depression, bought on by feelings of low selfworth and mistreatment from her first human family.

HI FORM EQUIGESIC “My horse had a very painful hoof abscess (his 3rd in as many months) and I didn't want to put him on ‘bute’ again, so I ordered the Equigesic instead and he responded really well and seemed much more comfortable while on this!” TECHNYFLEX CANINE “Bonnie is a 6 yr old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. After 6 weeks taking a daily Technyflex capsule the improvement has been dramatic, no more limping, she looks pain-free.” KINESIOLOGY + ENERGY HEALING Anne Winning “Our elderly male cat had developed breathing and eating difficulties over a period of time. Several visits to the local vet temporarily gave relief but this didn't last. We had been recommended to use cat food purchased from Greenpet and through the web site I found Dr Anne Winning. Anne told me several things about our cat that we hadn't realised and gave me suggestions on how to improve his eating and breathing. I found her emails a delight to read as we sent photos of our cat and she was able to connect with him on a personal level. We were told about natural remedies which was a welcomed change from antibiotics. His appetite has improved and he seems more alert. What I liked was the way Anne included my cat in on the discussion about how to help him. You often wonder what your pets are thinking when they are not well and can only guess but Anne made it possible for us to understand how he was feeling and to take action to help him.”
