Free veterinary consultation for Banixx customers – Dr. Richard Porter DVM

Banixx is delighted to announce an alliance with Dr. Richard Porter where he will give free veterinary consultation over the telephone. Banixx Pet owners will now be able to contact Dr. Porter via email or telephone and obtain veterinary advice and consultation at no cost.

Dr. Richard Porter attended Veterinary College at Iowa State University with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He went into practice with the main focus on large animals. As time grew, he became interested in health and wellness as his small animal practice evolved. He recognized as a large animal practitioner that the farmers wanted him to keep the animals well with diet and supplements. He pondered why, in small animal medicine, they were taught to just treat the symptoms. Diet and wellness were sometimes added as just a side note.   Dr. Porter also was a veterinary consultant for KV supply, where he spent a great deal of time listening to others and researching about health and wellness concerning animals and humans. Across the nation, Dr. Porter has used his knowledge and wisdom not only to save countless pets lives but also to advise their owners what is needed for them to live a long healthy life.

The new Banixx® Medicated Shampoo, developed at the repeated request of customers, was formulated to aid horses in the recovery of multiple anti-fungal/anti-bacterial skin conditions such as Rain Rot (Rain Scald), Scratches, Girth, Mane, & Tail Itch, and Dermatitis.

Spay/Neuter Initiatives

Supporting the work of animal rescue organizations will always be a priority for Banixx. However, we also believe that an integral part of solving the problem of animal homelessness and overpopulation is developing affordable spay/neuter options and better education for pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering.

Banixx is working with animal rescue facilities to award monthly spay/neuter certificates for those who cannot afford the surgery. Working through its long-term relationship with Danny & Ron’s Rescue, of Camden, S.C. we are learning how best to fund these initiatives.

Ron Danta says this about Banixx:
“We use Banixx on everything that comes into our care, and, believe me, we see some pretty difficult cases. For all of these cases, we apply Banixx and it just goes to work! We get results in record time and just love the fact that Banixx has no sting and no smell to it. This prevents further angst for our dogs and puppies, who, for the most part, are already traumatized.”

Banixx Donates To America’s Military Working Dog Association

Banixx collaborated with Military Working Dog Team Support Association in order to provide seven cases of Banixx Pet Care to our Military Working Dogs in Afghanistan and several cases for Dog Handlers at the Fort Hood Army Base.  One amazing aspect of the Banixx product is that its efficacy is in no way affected by exposure to heat, sun or freezing; which is also important when shipping to geographic areas where temperature extremes are the norm.  Banixx also has zero odor and zero sting, so it will not raise alarm or cause anxiety for these hard-working members of our military.

7 Healthy Fruits and Vegetables Your Dog Might Actually Like

Nowadays many of us are eating better and getting more exercise to lead a healthier lifestyle and the same should be true for our four-legged friends. The growing obesity trend in America is also starting to affect the canine population and they face the same health risks as their human counterparts when it comes to being overweight.

Eating more fruits and vegetables also offer similar rewards when it comes to living healthy, but many people assume that dogs won’t eat their greens or don’t care for fruit. In many cases, this couldn’t be farther from the truth, so check out these seven produce favorites for your pet:

#1 – Watermelon: You may have seen an adorable video recently of a cute, little French Bulldog who gobbles up watermelon while sitting inside of the enormous fruit. At over 90% water, this melon contains more lycopene per ounce than a tomato, and this powerful antioxidant can help to reduce heart problems and stroke instances.

Banixx Helps Country Acres with Some Needy Standard Bred Horses

Here is Jazz, rescued from a sad life of servitude in New York state [left]… now, in a wonderful foster home while she recovers with the help of groceries and Banixx. This was certainly a case of rain rot, but as per usual, Banixx was 100% effective for rain rot treatment.

Here is Jazz, today [right], who was rescued by Country Acres and nursed back to health by Karen W.

Jazz has just had her 27th birthday, thus recovery took a little longer than it would have taken had she been a younger horse.  But, clearly, with Kathy’s dedicated care, Jazz was able to rise to the occasion!
