It can be stressful managing symptoms when traveling internationally with a dog, especially a senior pup. But don’t let this get you down! Keep reading to hear about Dai Tau Jai’s amazing re-location journey from Hong Kong to Australia.

Meet Dai Tau Jai – “Big Head Boy” in Cantonese

Dai Tau Jai is a youthful-looking chi chi who happens to be 15 but doesn’t look a day over 7! His journey with natural herbal supplements started due to abnormal liver enzyme numbers (high ALT) and intervertebral disk disease

Dai Tau Jai’s furmama Julie reached out to NHV in 2021 about her sweet pup’s liver and spinal issues through our furriend @wolfgang2242. We are so pleased that she was willing to put her faith in us! So we made it our mission to do anything we could to help her senior pup feel as comfortable as possible ever since.

Not only grateful to all the NHV products but also to Steve the Wolfgang who brought us to you that has helped many many furbabies and given them a hope to start a healthier life.

Naturally Supporting Dai Tau Jai

Being part of an international furmily has its pros and cons. Dai Tau Jai had all the support and love he needed from his granpawrent in Hong Kong, but he also missed his furmom that lived in Australia.

The Covid-19 pandemic separated Julie from her daughter for three years. And we were so touched when she reached out for our help with the family reunion!

We may relocate him from HK to Australia for reunion with my daughter who is Dai Tau Jai s real owner that has been separated for three years due to Covid 19. Considering he is going to 15 this year which is a hard decision to make as his condition may vary week by week. Want to gather more advice in this matter especially would love to hear from you that is really much appreciated.

Flying with a pet can be really stressful for the human and furkiddo. Depending on the flight company and size of your pet, they may not be allowed in the main cabin. Not having your eyes on your little one throughout the trip can be scary. To make things even more nerve-racking, Dai Tau Jai’s destination demands a 10-day dog quarantine for any pups flying in.

To help prepare our big-headed boy for his international trip to Australia, we recommended NHV Lesstress. This herbal formula includes calming herbs like Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Passion Flower that act on the nervous and immune systems to help to reduce anxiety, hyperactivity, and excitability.

To help ease dogs into stressful situations like moving or traveling, we always recommend starting on Lesstress at least a month before the trip. This will give their nervous system and hormone levels enough time to feel the full benefits of the herbs ahead of time. If your little one has a sensitive stomach you might want to start with a reduced dosage and gradually increase it to the dosage recommended by weight.
