Pets Love Noni
Vets have found that our Noni Fruit Leather is great for holistic pet care. It promotes overall health and energy levels, as Bhakti, our farm dog will tell you. The Noni Pet Lotion is great for soothing skin irritations as well as promoting good hair and coat texture. Check out the many testimonials and reviews we have up on the website!
Veterinarians Using Noni Products:
Veterinarians who work with both small and large animals have agreed— our noni products are powerful for healing! “I think noni is a very useful, very safe, very broad acting supplement,” says Dr. Joyce Harman of Virginia, who has been practicing holistic veterinary care, primarily on horses, since 1991.
Veterinarians particularly love noni lotion as a topical treatment, because it’s safe if pets lick some off. Priscilla Dressen, another veterinarian, shared this story: “I just cared for a dog that was wearing a cone for a year, after many veterinarians unsuccessfully treated his allergies with steroids and antibiotics. Once I put the noni lotion on the skin irritation, the dog stopped licking right away! And if animals do lick the noni lotion, I know it won’t harm them, whereas if they lick a triple antibiotic or burn cream they will take in poisonous medication.” You can get more of Dr. Harman and Priscilla’s perspectives in this article.

Another veterinarian, Dr. Adrienne Moore, who works with both large and small animals. “I have found noni lotion to be more effective than any of the other concoctions used by my clients,” she says. “I recently had a case that almost completely resolved after using noni lotion for just three days.” You can learn more about how Dr. Moore uses noni lotion for horses, dogs, and cats in this article.

Here is a short list of what our noni products may do for your favorite friend:
Boosts the Immune System
Supports a Healthy Response to inflammation
Promotes Good Joint Function
Promotes Healthy Looking Skin
Soothes Skin Irritations
Veterinarians point out that animals intuitively known what is good for them. Ever notice how a dog will go eat grass when it needs to throw up and remove something from its stomach?
Here on the farm, you will see many types of animals, including birds, wild chickens, wild pigs, and of course Bhakti, out in the orchards eating fresh, ripe un-fermented Noni. It is raw food that keeps them healthy, and they know it!
Animals “Discovered” the Power of Noni First:
The Ethnobotanists at the University of Hawaii don’t believe Polynesians discovered that noni fruit was edible right away. After all, it has a pretty potent smell! According to the Ethnobotanists, they first used noni lotion topically for skin irritations. It was only after observing animals (birds, pigs, dogs, etc.) eating noni fruit and enjoying such good health that the early Polynesians discovered the benefits of eating the raw fruit.
Being King of the Farm is hard work, but Bhakti has been in incredible health his entire life. He is a walking, running, bouncing testimonial for Noni as he approaches 12 years old. He is the highlight of every Farm Tour as he comes bounding over to visit the group and show off how he eats Noni Fruit Leather. He jumps from person to person, sniffing and smelling, until I pull out the bag of Noni Fruit Leather out of my back pocket. Then he’s all attention! He immediately comes over to me and sits down, looking very intently at the bag of Noni Fruit Leather. Everyone on the Tour is always amazed at his focus and how much he loves eating Noni Fruit Leather.
This October we’re celebrating Pet Month! Be sure to give your animal friends lots of love, kindness and Noni Fruit. My daughter, Lola, was jogging on the farm and took this photo of Bhakti, our Australian Shepard mix. As you can see, Bhakti is King of the Farm, and he knows it. Lola jogs and he sits and watches!!
