Sarah shared this wonderful story with us about how she and Harvey found each other.
Harvey and I first met 15.5 years ago, he was 6 months old then, a wild farm kitten, extremely nervy and hostile. The farmer’s wife had put down a big platter of chicken that cold February evening we selected Harvey and his brother Alfie, all the kittens tucked in except Harvey, this scared little mite who hid under a bench, bolted out, grabbed a chicken leg and scooted back under his bench for safety, at that point I said yes, I’d like him, the vulnerable scared one!
We got them both home and my mum had said these pair won’t last the week, runny eyes, runny noses and Harvey with a cough. Lots of TLC and nursing and a trip to the vet and here we are 16 years later. For the first 6 months of Harvey’s life, I fed him behind the sofa at arm’s length while he took his anger out on me, hissing n spitting. It took him a long time to settle and gain confidence.
Now he’s in his senior years, he’s had a rough time this year especially, he lost his blood brother Alfie, who he hid behind a lot and had helped him with his confidence, then, Sofie, a little kitten full of beans and mischief, came along, leaping all over him one minute keen to play, them licking him all over 100% devoted to him the next.
In April this year, he had terrible toothache and had to succumb to having to have some teeth removed as he wasn’t able to eat, and was in a lot of pain. It took him to September to recover from this awful ordeal, and to top it off the vet told us he had kidney failure. His asthma also reared its ugly head as the damp autumn weather arrived.
We won’t be phased or let it defy us though will we Harvey?... We have NHV Natural Pet Remedies by our side, Tripsy, Turmeric, Petomega 3 (these made a huge difference to his coat that had gone dry and flaky), Resp-aid, Milk thistle, Yucca, to name a few… I’m such a big advocate for these products that my fridge is full! And it’s my go-to medicine cabinet.
With Harvey’s health and my own, I’m determined never to give up, and won’t stop at anything to try and resolve a problem.
I can categorically say the NHV products make a huge difference to energy levels, coat health, appetite, movement and pain levels.
We first heard about poor Drake’s itching problem in June 2019. This little guy is a 3 year old French Bulldog. He was a happy playful boy until he was 18 months old. Problems started with Drake licking and chewing his paws and legs, and small bald patches started to appear on his ear, back and face.
Prescription medication helped his condition and reduce his symptoms but didn't completely solve the problem. After a few months, his itching was worse than ever, with him unable to walk due to him biting his legs and paws. At this point, he started wearing a pet cone collar to prevent him from causing more damage. But this was even more distressing, watching him was heartbreaking. Drake's parents tried everything from changing diet, antihistamines, creams, scrubs, bathing in ice to help ease his suffering. Nothing was helping. They were desperate for help.
Three months later Drake’s family got in touch with us and sent fabulous photographs of their handsome boy looking happy and healthy again. He no longer needs to wear the pet cone collar, his coat is healthy and the bald patches have gone. Most importantly, licking and chewing his paws and legs has stopped. His improvement is remarkable.
"It's wonderful to see Drake look so healthy again, we have our happy boy back"

It breaks my heart to write this knowing I will never see my two best friends again, in but the memories I have.
Poppy and Hope were two little dogs who belonged to my friends Morven and Peter. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them 17 years ago.
Everywhere we went I had Poppy and Morven had Hope. Poppy loved walks but Hope not so much and needed a lot of encouragement.
We took them to puppy training classes. We all had to walk round in a circle, Poppy on one side with me and Hope on the other side with Morven. Well, the squeals from both of them were quite awful as they wanted to be together but that wasn’t allowed.
In quiet places, we would let them run free but Poppy would frequently stop and look back checking that I was okay. I would tell her to run on and I was fine. This was just something as she always did.
They both had such wonderful loving personalities. When I went to their home I always got such a welcome from them both (maybe because I always had treats in my bag).
Eleven years ago when I was 65 years old Morven and I walked The West Highland Way (95 miles) over 5 days for charity. By day 5 we were exhausted, cold, wet and had extremely sore feet. On the last stretch to Fort William, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Through the trees, I could see 2 little dogs run towards us. It was Poppy and Hope with their dad, Peter. This fairly spurred me on to the finish line. I have told this story many times but it still makes me cry. The sheer happiness of seeing Poppy and Hope I will never forget.
Forever I will miss Poppy and Hope, never will I forget them.
Somewhere, sometime we may meet again. Love, Auntie Elaine xx

Meet senior gentleman Gus, a handsome 14 year old miniature black poodle from the UK🐾
He’s an active dog for his age and loves to spend time running around the garden with his two brothers. But as Gus was getting older his mum noticed his movement was getting a little slower and he was experiencing some joint discomfort.
Gus’ mum decided to add NHV Turmeric to her sweet boy’s daily diet to help ease his joint pain and aid his movement. And help it did!😁
“Gus used to struggle to stand first thing in the morning, but now jumps to his feet”
NHV Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and nutritive properties. Turmeric helps with general well-being and is useful for a number of different health conditions in pets, including arthritis, inflammation, cancer, liver function, and kidney disorders.
Thirteen months ago we received heartbreaking news from the vet about our dear cat Angel 🐾
Scans revealed she had a large tumour in her bladder. We will never forget the words from the vet that day. "You have 2 options for Angel"
☝️ Let her go, put her to sleep, there is no cure or medication to help Angel's condition.
✌️ Palliative care, take her home, spoil her and give her Loxicom daily for pain relief.
Sitting in vet surgery that evening waiting on Angel's Loxicom (yes we went with option 2) we did what most desperate pet parents do. With tears streaming down our faces we searched Google for help 😣. And help was granted 😊 that was the moment we found NHV Natural Pet Supplements.
Angel has been taking NHV ES Clear, Milk Thistle and Tripsy for thirteen months along with Loxicom from the vet. Last month we started reducing her Loxicom and switching to NHV Yucca. We are pleased to report that this has been a successful transition. She is bright and even more active than before. Angel is certainly living up to her name 🥰NHV Yucca can help
🐾 support inflammation
🐾 muscular support
🐾 ease pain
🐾 improve appetite
🐾 eases digestion problems
As a senior dog Poppy has been taking NHV Turmeric and Old Timer to help with her digestion, mobility and energy levels.
Shortly before Poppy’s birthday, her sister Hope passed away. This left Poppy struggling with extreme anxiety, she had always had her sister Hope by her side and suddenly she was gone 😢
Poppy started to suffer panic attacks, racing around the house looking for Hope. Her parents tried to comfort her but her little heart was racing.
To help Poppy's panic attacks she recently added NHV Lesstress and Coco Furcare to her daily NHV regime.
🐾 Lesstress helps calm her separation anxiety and boost the immune system 🐾
🐾 Coco Furcare helps spread a claiming effect and deodorise her coat (ideal, as she is a very elderly girl and baths can be stressful).
Although Poppy’s parents are heartbroken without Hope they appreciate how lucky they were to have her for so many years and are so grateful to still have love and cuddles from Poppy.
“ NHV supplements gave us an additional 12 months with our beautiful girl Hope, she had a fantastic quality of life right up to the end, we couldn’t have wished for a more lovable companion. Her sister Poppy is struggling without her but is showing fewer signs of anxiety each day. NHV supplements have helped our 2 beautiful girls throughout their senior years x”
Around September 2018, Zimba a happy young boy, developed sores on his legs and lost much of his fur on both sides of his body and back legs. His parents couldn't think of anything that may have caused this.
The Vet gave Zimba steroid injections, this helped in the short term but did not fully clear the sores, or help his coat.
Zimba also tried special diets, but nothing was helping!
His mum and dad found NHV Natural Pet Supplements, and now, they are so pleased to report that Zimba has not needed any trips to the vet for steroid injections since starting NHV, and he has his beautiful ginger coat back.
“We are delighted to see our handsome boy looking happy and healthy. We are amazed how quickly his coat has grown back"
To get Zimba’s coat back to full health he started NHV Skin Relief and Coat Kit, consisting of Stimmune and Ouch Away Spray.
NHV Stimmune to help ease allergy symptoms and strengthen against infection 🐾
NHV Ouch Away Spray to help skin irritation, fight infection and stimulate hair growth 🐾

When Lisa’s dad noticed his beautiful girl, wasn’t quite herself, he took her to the vet who confirmed Lisa had Feline Leukemia (FeLV), which unfortunately has no cure. Lisa had been losing weight, her coat was matting and in poor condition, she lost her usual healthy appetite and she wasn’t as active or playful. Lisa quickly after diagnosis started a daily regimen of NHV Felimm and Multi Essentials supplements, Feline Leukemia Fighter Pack. This kit is specially formulated to help boost the immune system, fight infection, which cats with FeLV can be prone to, detoxify the immune system, stimulate appetite and improve energy levels.
“ Lisa is making great progress, she is playing with her toys, using her scratch post and her healthy appetite has returned. I started noticing a difference within a few weeks. We have now been using NHV supplements for 6 weeks and Lisa coat is even improving.”
Baby, a nervous, anxious rescue cat aged between 7 and 9 years old has been with us for two years.
We don’t know anything about poor Baby’s life prior to being handed into the animal rescue shelter where she spent 3 months.
