If you’re a dog lover like me, you’re no stranger to their constant scratching and biting at their dry, itchy skin. Sure it’s common canine behavior. But, when is an itch more than just an itch? Get ready to meet Dr. Bernadine Cruz, renowned veterinarian for over 20 years. You may recognize her from her numerous TV appearances or from her pet radio show in Los Angeles. Dr. Cruz is an author and nationally recognized speaker on pet care. You’ll also hear from renowned chemist David Fielder who will talk about the scientific breakthrough in pet care.
Incredible Discoveries: Dr. Cruz, welcome.
Dr. Cruz: Thank you, for having me.
Incredible Discoveries: I’m a die-hard dog lover. It seems that whether it’s a pedigree or mutt, dogs still share one thing in common; they scratch like crazy. What causes this?
Dr. Cruz: Well, dogs can be itchy for every reason that you and I are; and then some, depending on where they itch, bite, scratch, chew will often times give us reasons why. Their skin is the largest organ on their body; but it has very limited number of ways it can react: dryness, redness, itchiness. And did you know that a dog’s skin is actually thinner and more fragile than ours? So, we really need to take very good care of that skin.
Incredible Discoveries: There are lots of products out there that you can buy at convenience stores, pet stores, doggy spas. Yet our dogs are still scratching uncontrollably. Why do these products fail us?
Dr. Cruz: The problem is many of them address the itch in only one way – they only clean, only moisturize, or only medicate. You need to do all three to get to the root of the cause.
Incredible Discoveries: That’s why you wind up with a cabinet full of bottles.
Dr. Cruz: Many of them provide temporary relief by washing away the allergens and irritants; but they do not provide sustained skin relief by addressing the skin irritation and potential inflammation. Some contain harsh chemicals that aggravate skin conditions – and even steroids.
Incredible Discoveries: Steroids?
Dr. Cruz: Steroids are often used to minimize allergic reactions and reduce skin inflammation; but can have side effects such as increased appetite, change in mood and they can even depress the immune system.
Incredible Discoveries: To think that some of the soaps that itch treatments we trust may actually expose our pets to these potential dangers is very frightening.
Dr. Cruz: And they don’t always work.
Incredible Discoveries: How does AvenaPro 6 work?
Dr. Cruz: AvenaPro 6 unleashes 3 different oat active emollients, to address the underlying causes of itching, called triple oat complex: one to calm the itch, another to protect and moisturize the skin and follicles, and another to clean the hair coat.
Incredible Discoveries: “Active oats” – what does that mean?
Dr. Cruz: It means they have powerful therapeutic properties. It’s very unique. They have the ability to actually get into the skin and restore health. AvenaPro 6 features Avenanthramides, a remarkable all natural oat compound that’s clinically proven to reduce itching and shedding better than the leading veterinary therapy. AvenaPro 6 starts working immediately on contact as the triple oat complex goes deep to quench skin. You may even see results after the first bath. You’ll definitely feel it – smoother skin, fewer flakes, less itching and biting. Most anti-itch formulas take at least 5 minutes to soak in. I don’t know about you but I’ve never met a wet dog that can sit still for that long. But AvenaPro 6 works in only 2 minutes. You’ll never have to chase after your sopping wet dog again.
Incredible Discoveries: I have to ask – what is so magical about this revolutionary formula?
Dr. Cruz: It’s the triple oat complex, a powerful blend of 3 oat extracts: avenanthramides, oat beta glucan and oat peptides. In human medicine the FDA considers these oat extracts a type 2 skin protectant for their therapeutic properties that diminish redness and irritation, and their antioxidant activity which helps repair the skin.
Incredible Discoveries: Oatmeal is something I’ve seen in skin care products that I actually use on my own skin.
Dr. Cruz: Believe it or not, AvenaPro 6 is better than our oatmeal products in a lot of ways. AvenaPro 6 scientists discovered that the avenanthramides found in the hulls of oats are powerful antihistamine compounds. They created a patented extraction process for carefully removing the oat extracts to preserve purity and potency. This purity helps them get absorbed.
Incredible Discoveries: Dr. Cruz, it sounds to me that the key to absorption is solubility.
Dr. Cruz: That’s right. Without solubility there are no benefits. You see, other oatmeal formulas contain a starchy matrix of colloidal molecules that keep the avenanthramides trapped inside. That crude form is over 10,000 times larger than pure avenanthramide molecules. So, there’s little chance of them getting absorbed into the skin. They’re not even water soluble. They harden on the skin without delivering any benefits.
Incredible Discoveries: So, what happens? They cake up on the skin and get washed away?
Dr. Cruz: Yes, they’ll feel good on the skin for a little while; but there’s no lasting benefit beyond that. But AvenaPro 6 avenanthramides are not only smaller because of the way they’re extracted; they’re water soluble, which helps them get carried through the skin’s surface.
Incredible Discoveries: What about shedding and pet dander? If you have kids, you don’t want them breathing in this dead skin.
Dr. Cruz: Dander makes up a huge percentage of the junk floating in the air of our homes. Clinically studies have shown that the AvenaPro 6 system decreases scaling and dander by more than 90%.
Incredible Discoveries: Incredible! AvenaPro 6 does all of this and then some. You know, we pin our hopes on pet store products because the alternative can be a costly visit to the veterinarian, not to mention the costs of prescriptions.
Dr. Cruz: Some severe skin conditions do require a visit to the veterinarian. However, AvenaPro 6 is quite simply the most remarkable over-the-counter skin soothing system for pets that I’ve ever come across. And it’s clinically proven.
Incredible Discoveries: Tell me about the clinical study where AvenaPro 6 was tested against the most popular pet shampoo.
Dr. Cruz: A double blind clinical trial conducted by veterinarians revealed that AvenaPro 6 out-performed the top selling prescription shampoo. They saw a 94% reduction in scaling and dander. They also saw reduced shedding and improved skin and hair coat condition. And this was after only 3 baths.
Incredible Discoveries: In only 3 baths? Well, it was vets and professional groomers who were handling the dogs, right?
Dr. Cruz: No, actual dog owners washed their own pets. They used as much or as little product as they needed to work up a good lather. That’s how easy this product is to use. Use it like any shampoo. Leave it on for 2 minutes to gives the avenanthramides and oat emollients time to penetrate the skin.
Incredible Discoveries: Dr. Cruz, I want to thank you so much for joining us.
Dr. Cruz: Thank you, for having me.
