Christmas Greetings From Dr. Jane Bicks

Christmas Greetings From
Dr. Jane Bicks, DVM

FIRST . . . Who Is Dr. Jane Bicks

Dr. Jane  Bicks is clearly defined by her absolute dedication to the health and wellness of companion animals.  She is a “nationally recognized authority on holistic treatment of animals.*  Dr. Jane regularly consults with pet industry experts to ensure that Life’s Abundance innovative health formulas exceed the highest of quality standards, effectiveness and safety.

Additionally, she closely monitors discoveries in nutritional science.  Once they are verified, she makes the corresponding improvements to Life’s Abundance formulas.  Much of her career has been spent researching and developing premium pet products.

She is the author of three national books on pet care.  Her books include Revolution In Cat Nutrition, Rawson Associates, New Youk, 1986, Dr. Jane’s Thirty Days to A Healthier, Happier Cat, Berkley Publishing, New York, 1997, and Dr. Jane’s Guide to a Healthier, Happier Dog, Berkley Publishing, New York, 1999.

She has served on several professional boards including the Cornell Feline Health Center.  Dr. Jane served as the President of the Veterinary Medical Association in NYC and was appointed by former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to help start one of the largest animal shelters in the United States.  She has also appeared on many network television and cable programs and numerous radio stations as a veterinary expert.

Her work to promote the betterment of the companion animal community was the inspiration for Life’s Abundance’ very own foundation, which is why it proudly bears her name. The Dr. Jane HealthyPetNet Foundation is dedicated to the promotion, maintenance and management of America’s small animal rescues, each of which are committed to saving abused and neglected animals from the desperation of homelessness.  Dr. Jane serves as a board member and the guiding force behind the good work of this much-needed foundation.

There is very little at Life’s Abundance in Jupiter, Florida, that has not been positively changed by Dr. Jane’s love and commitment to our pet companions.

SECOND . . . Read Her Report On 2014

The season of giving is upon us once again. Many of us will be spending time with family and friends, and probably doing a bit of frantic last-minute shopping. Although the holidays are a blur of such activities, it’s also the time of year many of us pause to reflect on our own lives, and consider the impact we’ve had on the lives of others.

As I look back on 2014, I feel truly honored and grateful to be part of a company devoted to the health and well being of companion animals. From our unbeatable customer care providers to our top-notch warehouse workers, from accounting to marketing, and everyone in between, we’re all pet people. It’s not uncommon to see a dog or two in our offices on one of our ‘take your pet to work’ days. Helping companion animals lead healthier, longer and happier lives is not just our company commitment … it’s a personal mission that guides our work every day.

I’m amazed by what we have been able to accomplish in the last twelve months. This year alone, we introduced six new products to our pet health line up, including two dental health products and four all-natural buffalo chew treats. And there is so much more on the horizon! In the next couple of months, we’ll launch more products, including two ultra-pure fish oil supplements for companion animals.

Plus, we have a brand new web site! A vast improvement over our old site, it’s so easy to search, which makes our products easier to find. In fact, I can do everything on my smart phone! And, I’m very pleased to say, our blog readership has tripled this year, which means our message is reaching more pet parents than ever before.

I continue to be honored by the accomplishments of our non-profit
– both as its namesake and by the amazing goodness it achieves. Thanks to your continued business and generosity, The Dr. Jane Foundation has been able to help fund the everyday activities of courageous animal rescues across the country. Some may say that putting an end to pet homelessness, abuse and neglect is a pipe dream, but I also know that there’s nothing we can’t do if we put our minds to it.

THIRD . . . Her Personal Greeting to You

No matter where you are this holiday season, know that I’m holding you and your pet kids in my heart. I’m thankful of the great privilege that is working on behalf of you and your families, for the trust you place in our company and our products, and for all you do to make the world a better place for companion animals.

From all of us here at Life’s Abundance,
we wish you and yours
a joyous holiday time and good cheer
throughout the New Year.

Dog Supplements Essential for Nutrition

Dog Supplements
Are Crucial to Daily Diet

Dog Supplements
Our holistic veterinarian and product formulator,
Dr. Jane Bicks—has never met a dog she didn’t love.

“The more we learn about the way bodies function, the more amazing they seem to us. There is a growing amount of anecdotal evidence that suggests a mammal’s body has a highly complex, natural intelligence.   As a holistic veterinarian, I review such evidence, interpreting it within the context of established scientific knowledge. Based upon these observations, it seems that a dog’s body “prefers” nutrients as they exist in real foods, in their more natural state.  On a cellular level, their bodies are familiar with the nutrient components. Therefore the body knows to absorb and assimilate exactly what it needs. That is why I believe that small amounts of nutrients in real foods can have a profound affect on a dog’s body. In light of this information, I formulated a new approach.  Adding dog supplements to the overall nutrient intake, Life’s Abundance Wellness Food Supplement for Dogs has been created”.

Dog Supplements Are Vital
In Maintaining Overall Health

Dog supplements are important to your dog’s diet.  They can play a crucial role in maintaining overall health.  We know that some dogs require additional nutritional intake to help them maintain a healthy body.  These requirements are due to age, breed, environment and other factors.  Based on this premise, our holistic veterinarian has formulated a brand new formula to enhance your dog’s daily diet.  The perfect complement to a healthy diet is Life’s Abundance Wellness Food Supplement for Dogs.  It is formulated with a broad array of naturally nutritious ingredients from real food to help maintain overall health. The nutrients contained in these superior dog supplements are sourced from foods, like poultry liver, cranberries, carrots, eggs, pineapples and many others.

Dog Supplements Are Now
Nutritious Chewable Tablets

In these chewable dog supplements, each tablet includes the following nutritious ingredients:

  • Poultry liver, which is rich in vitamin A and D, protein and selenium.
  • Natural vitamin E, which is an antioxidant.
  • Taurine, which is an essential amino acid.
  • Stabilized rice bran, which is a rich source of vitamins and minerals.
  • Cranberries, a rich source of vitamin C, dietary fiber and manganese.
  • Carrots, a rich source of beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamins C, D, and E, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and iron.
  • Dried egg, one of nature’s most nutrient-dense foods, plays an important role in a balanced diet. Eggs are considered a complete protein source, providing essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals (vitamins A, B, E, biotin, and sulfur). Eggs also provide healthy fats, such as omega-6 for healthy skin and a glossy coat.
  • Flaxseed meal is a rich plant source of antioxidant lignans and omega-3 fatty. Flax seed meal also has a very high level of protein and essential amino acids. In addition, flax seed meal contains significant amounts of fiber, vitamin E, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6 and is extremely rich in the minerals potassium, calcium and phosphorus.
  • Direct-fed microbials, ingredients similar to those found in supermarket yogurts.
  • Ester-C*, a unique and patented form of vitamin C (calcium ascorbate).
  • Tomato pomace, a good source of lycopene and vitamin C.
  • Alfalfa meal, which is a good source of protein, vitamin A, niacin and calcium, and a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, pantothenic acid, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese.
  • Pineapple, which is a good source of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Like all of our superior-quality dog supplements, these delicious compressed tablets are scored in-half for easy splitting.  And with a tantalizing liver flavor, your dog will be wagging a happy tail when it comes time for his or her supplement!
