Dog Health Consultations
Our products have helped thousands of dogs with a variety of different health problems ranging from allergies to anxiety to itchy skin. And in every case we provide general health and nutrition advice to support our products. But there are certain conditions or situations where our dogs are challenged by health problems and symptoms that require more than a supplement or remedy. Health can be very complex sometimes and when the family dog is sick, no one sleeps well. We therefore offer you and your dog full health consultations to provide you with the necessary help to get your dogs back chasing the ball.
These services are provided by Marijke van de Water, B.Sc., DHMS. She is an Animal Health and Nutrition Specialist, Homeopath, Medical Intuitive, and the founder and formulator of Riva’s Remedies who has thousands of success cases to her credit. Don’t live close by? No worries, all pet health services are offered remotely.
Complete Health Consultation
Our comprehensive health assessments are for dogs who are challenged by chronic or complex health conditions such as skin allergies, Cushing’s Syndrome, digestive conditions such as pancreatitis, long-term joint pain, fatigue and immune disorders.
A hair tissue mineral analysis is an accurate and comprehensive lab test that uses atomic absorption methods to identify your dog's mineral and nutritional imbalances. Each hair analysis tests the values of over 30 minerals and elements, 8 toxic heavy metals and 15 mineral ratios. A hair analysis is also an accepted method to determine the level of several toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum and arsenic. Toxic heavy metals are very destructive and routine blood tests cannot detect chronic heavy-metal poisoning.
A hair analysis can also reveal a variety of health conditions including adrenal dysfunction, thyroid and pituitary dysfunction, liver and kidney health, certain digestive issues, blood sugar imbalances, metabolism, anemia and inflammation.
I spent a lot of money on holistic vets, special diets, and other remedies for my dog’s skin rash and environmental allergies so I wish I had found Riva’s Remedies three years ago! We started him on a new diet program, corrected his nutritional deficiencies, and added specific herbal remedies. Marijke will be my go-to for any of the other dogs, my horses, or myself if the need arises.” ... Crystal M. (Ontario, Canada)
