Respiratory infections in pets

If you have noticed signs of lethargy, coughing, sneezing, fever and runny eyes or nose, then your pet is probably suffering from a cold or upper respiratory infection. This is an infection of the nose, throat and upper airways similar to when humans get a cold or flu. Cats are particularly prone to respiratory infections, but dogs can also contract them, including the common problem of kennel cough.

You may also notice that your pet has stopped eating; this happens particularly to cats because their appetites are primarily driven by smell. If a catís nose is blocked and he cannot smell, he will probably become more picky about what he will eat or stop eating altogether for a few days.

Like humans, pets are also susceptible to secondary sinus and chest infections that can result from an untreated cold or initial upper respiratory infection.

Although respiratory infections usually resolve within about 7-10 days, very young or very old pets may be at serious risk when infected with a cold or respiratory infection. For this reason, one should never ignore a petís illness. Prompt attention and treatment will save your pet much discomfort and, in weaker animals, may even save their life.

What causes respiratory infections in pets?

Various harmful organisms like viruses and bacteria can cause upper respiratory infections in pets and the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses may all be involved. These may be contagious among pets, but the organisms that affect pets are usually different from those affecting humans so catching a cold from your pet, or the other way around, should not be a concern.

Viruses and bacteria will cause illness much more readily in pets with weakened immune systems caused by another illness, poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle or advanced age.

What is the conventional treatment for respiratory infections?

Antibiotics are the usual treatment for respiratory infections and are generally effective in clearing bacterial infections. While antibiotics are not effective in viral infections like colds and flu, they are often prescribed prophylactically in order to prevent secondary infections (which are often bacterial).

Despite their initial efficacy, the downside of antibiotic drugs is that they reduce immune functioning, making your pet vulnerable to recurrence or other illness and infection. A vet may also prescribe medications (e.g. decongestives) for relief of congestion and other symptoms.

How can natural remedies help?

Natural remedies can help to safely reduce your petís unpleasant symptoms during an upper respiratory tract infection, cut recovery time and also strengthen the immune system to prevent recurring infection. Due to the high safety profile of the ingredients, our natural remedies are also free of side-effects.

What is PetAlive Respo-K?

PetAlive Respo-K is a 100% natural blend of herbal and homeopathic ingredients specially selected to treat and prevent colds and respiratory infections in pets.

Respo-K comes in small lactose tablets which are readily taken by dogs and which may be crushed and easily administered to cats.


What are the ingredients?

PetAlive Respo-K contains the following 100% natural ingredients:

Calc. sulph. (D6) is a biochemic tissue salt useful in suppurating conditions including all infections and also speeds up the natural healing process. Calc. sulph. is useful for relief of cough, especially when phlegm is thin or watery and treats sore, irritated throats.

Ferrum phos. (D6) is another biochemic tissue salt that has many uses in the body. The most important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum Phos. to combat all types of infection and inflammation. Ferrum Phos. also helps to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and thus improves the body's ability to distribute oxygen-rich blood and iron to all cells, thereby facilitating healing. Ferrum Phos. is recommended at the first stage of any infection for fast resolution of the symptoms.

Hepar. Sulph. (12C) is a homeopathic remedy for infections, skin ailments, earache, sore throats and rattling coughs. It is particularly useful in inflammation of the throat and larynx, bronchitis and tonsillitis. It also accelerates the natural healing processes in the body.

Verbascum thapsus (Mullein leaves) is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic herb. In herbal literature, Mullein leaves are classified as expectorants (promote the discharge of mucus) and demulcents (soothes irritated mucous membranes). These properties make Verbascum an excellent remedy for infections of the respiratory tract. This herb has also been proven to be especially useful for irritating coughs and bronchial congestion.

Sambucus nigra (Elder flowers) is a widely used herbal remedy for coughs, colds and flu. As a diaphoretic herb (causing perspiration) it is useful for relieving fever. Recent research has shown that Sambucus nigra also contains compounds that are active against several strains of flu viruses.

(PetAlive Respo-K contains no gluten, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives)

How has PetAlive Respo-K helped others?

"I used your Respo-K remedy for my kitten when she got a cold. I was really worried about her as she is still so young and fragile. By the end of the weekend, she was looking much better and was eating again. By Wednesday she was her old self again. I have a friend whose kitten died from something as simple and ďminorĒ as a cold so I am really relieved and grateful. Thank you!" - Tertia

"I wanted to write and tell you about my experience with your natural remedies. I am a big cat-lover and have a house full of pets. Your PetAlive has become one of my favorite websites and Iíve ordered a number of different remedies for my extended ďfamilyĒ. Although I have been happy with everything Iíve ordered from you I must specifically comment on your Respo-K and Sinu-Rite products. I have one cat who often gets respiratory tract infections and itís almost a given that her sinuses become involved. We have battled with this problem and I canít tell you what Iíve spent in vet bills and antibiotics. Last time she got an infection I gave her Respo-K and Sinu-Rite and she recovered much more quickly than usual. I continued to give her the remedies for a little while after she was well again and she hasnít had a repeat infection since. She actually seems much stronger and healthier overall as Iím sure the numerous illnesses were putting a serious strain on her health and energy. I am going to make sure I always have stock of these remedies in my house from now on!" - Moira Higgs

How do I use Respo-K?

Tablet Form

Respo-K tablets may be given whole or crushed and mixed with food or a treat, depending on your pet's size and preferences.

Administer 3-5 times daily for 10-15 days as follows:

Cats and Dogs under 20 lbs: 1 tablet
Dogs 20-50 lbs: 2 tablets
Dogs over 50 lbs: 3 tablets

Continue for 3-5 days after the desired effect has been achieved.

Spray Form

Initially, depress pump until primed. Hold close to pet's mouth and spray directly, or spray onto its food or water. Use 3 times daily.

Cats and dogs under 20 lbs: 2 sprays
Dogs 20-50 lbs: 3 sprays
Dogs over 50 lbs: 4 sprays

Dosages may be repeated more frequently when needed for acute support. For more frequent dosing, use up to 5 times daily for the first 10-15 days.

Both forms of Respo-K may be used in conjunction with KC-Defenseô when dogs are to be placed in kennels to support the immune system and encourage respiratory health. For added long-term respiratory system support, it is recommended that Respo-K be administered in conjunction with AmazaPetô.

Note: Safe for animals of all ages, pregnant animals or animals that are nursing. Respo-K can safely be used along with prescription medications. No adverse interactions have been noted between the ingredients in Respo-K and prescription medications. However, as with any medicine, it is always advisable to consult your vet.

Caution: Please consult your vet if symptoms persist.

How long until I see results?

Your petís symptoms should start to improve within a day or two of beginning the remedy or even sooner. Respo-K will also cut recovery time, bringing your pet back to good health within a few days.

How long does one bottle last?

One bottle of 125 tablets will last between one and 6 weeks, depending on the size and dosage needs of your pet.

A 3-18 week supply is offered at a discount see the Buy 2 Get 1 FREE special below.

Dietary recommendations for optimal health and immune functioning

Many holistic vets will agree that the more raw food (as opposed to cooked meals or dried commercial pet food) the animal eats, the fewer general health problems there will be. Ideally the best diet for a cat or dog is one which most closely resembles that which he would find in the wild.

For cats, who are largely carnivorous, this should consist of mainly raw meat (minced beef and chicken, chicken livers) mixed with a little bone meal and a small amount of some grated carrot or finely chopped greens like spinach.

Dogs will do well if more chopped and grated raw vegetables are added to their diets. We also recommend raw meat and raw bones for dogs, mixed with grated raw vegetables and chopped salads.

A teaspoon or two of olive oil added to the meal every day (depending on size) will also be beneficial. Do not give your animals any milk at all - nor products containing sugar. Animals who follow this type of diet are usually completely infection and allergy free.

Remember that you should not try to change your pet's diet overnight, especially if the animal is elderly. Slowly introduce new foods and allow the digestive system to become accustomed to the new diet.

PetAlive Respo-K is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched, natural, safe and effective.

PetAlive Respo-K is backed by our 60-day money-back guarantee so your pet can experience relief risk-free.
