Pet Owners Have Higher Chance of IBS

A recent research study by East Tennessee State University found that if you are a pet owner, there is a higher incidence of developing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) due to contact with your pets’ feces.

There are 85 million American families that have either a cat or a dog.  

There are 77 million dogs, 58 million cats and several million fish, birds, rabbits and more; and that is just in the United States alone.

Your pet’s poop wreaks havoc on the normal bacteria that lives in your gut.  

Once the microbiome becomes unbalanced, the ‘bad’ bacteria can proliferate and contribute to IBS.  

Some of the symptoms include cramps, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and gas.

CopperPaw Mat, made with EPA-registered CuVerro Shield by Aereus Technologies, kills many bacteria - including the bacteria linked to feces.  

We do love our animals, but being smart about one’s health is an important aspect of being a responsible pet owner.  

By using CopperPaw Mat and CopperFoot Mat, the bacteria are stopped at your doorstep so that they don’t contaminate your couch, bed, floors and YOU!
