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.

Use PetAlive Respo-K

  • For acute treatment of colds and respiratory infections in pets
  • To reduce symptoms of sneezing, coughing, watery eyes and nose
  • To decrease recovery time from respiratory infections
  • To strengthen your pet's immune system and prevent recurrence
  • For prevention of secondary infections of the sinuses or lungs

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 cat’s 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 pet’s 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 pet’s 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.

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.

Excellent product!

Comments about Native Remedies PetAlive Respo-K:

I bought this and the Sinu-rite (I actually don't know which works as I give them both together) and ONP Immune Strengthener for my cats. When I adopted them one was very sick and she gave it to the other. Nothing the vet prescribed worked for more than a little while but when I started giving them these three things they got better and stayed better! I have kept them on a half dose of the Immune Strengthener and give this whenever they start sneezing.

    Comments about Native Remedies PetAlive Respo-K:

    Excellent product. It helped me save my cat's life, along with her regular medications. She has chronic respiratory issues and I use it daily in less quantity as a preventive. I give her a crushed tablet mixed in wet food 2 or 3 times a day. If the cat begins to present any symptoms of disease I increase the dose to help her regain her good health condition. If I don't use it as a preventive she presents symptoms of disease regularly.

        Comments about Native Remedies PetAlive Respo-K:

        My cat suffers from chronic respiratory issues and feline herpes infection in her eye. This usually manifests as "teary eyes" and sometimes I can hear a little congestion in her breathing. Lately, she's not been feeling well (dull coat, sleeping near her litter box, generally lethargic). She gets Lysine powder supplement on her morning wet food every day which seems to help, but not always. I started her YESTERDAY using 1 Respo-K tablet crushed, 3 times a day (either mixed in wet food or in a little puddle of cream) and saw results within hours! I'm amazed! Her coat is soft and shiny. Her eyes have stopped tearing and she seems to feel better all over, peppier and happier. Nothing short of miraculous!

            My frenchie girl is 5 years old and has been suffering from breathing problems her whole life. I've spent thousands and thousands of dollars trying to do everything I can for her but she still has problems. This stuff is by no means a life saver but it was absolutely made a difference in her breathing. She takes it twice a day, 5 days a week, with meals and has been on it for over a year. I like to think her breathing has improved since she started it. I would definitely recommend.

              I've been using this product for a few years and for a little while now have been adding FCV Protect. Every 12 hrs. I crush the Respo-K tablets and mix with FCV Protect and moist cat food. My cat eats it right up with no problem unlike his reaction with drugs. He will not take them even if they are mixed with food of any kind.

                  I have had problems with winter with my one cat. I tried this product and it really didn't help. I am back at trying other natural things. The antibiotics from the vet don't help either. But they aren't for viruses.

                      I have a cat she is aprox 16 yrs old. She came down with a upper resp/nose/eye infections. We have spent a thousand dollars treating her at the vets for the last 5 months. We have tried every antibotic, steroids, pencillian with no help. We really thought she was going to die. Within one week of taking this along with HomeoPet Nose Relief and Only Natural Pet Ultimate Daily Feline Vitamins she is amazingly better. We are so pleased to see her breathing good, her eyes are back to normal looking and no more snot oozing out of her nose. She looks so much better just within a week. Amazing. Grateful! I am so grateful I tried this route. I will for sure turn to natural products much faster next time. Matter of fact I just ordered a natural product for my dogs itching. Hope it works this great!
