End of an Era...  Apology
. With regret & after c16+ years of working with Mother Nature's incredible ingredients (or similarly body-supportive/gentle creations), due to ongoing health issues (since 06/21 - see Summer 2021 items further down for details...) & a major event (09/22), it's time for R&SLtd to say farewell. Natural products have progressed hugely since we you/your animals have plenty of choice, options nowadays.  
Once stocks are sold, that will be it it may be over a couple of months or fairly quickly. 
BARGAINS bonanza - HERE  All specials are obviously only whilst stocks last! 
  <|>  Where at all possible, please order online for best prices & speedier processing.   (It also saves you experiencing KR being excessively emotional plus KR having 'increased dementia side-effects after talking).   Thank you kindly.
   <|>  Important Note.  If you order something that has gone out of stock (before KR could take it off the web - sadly this is not an Amazon-style automatic updating web management program & KR can only do so much in any 24hr slot!), A)  sincere apologies, B) a refund will be provided.  Need to query before ordering?  Click E-Mail Query
KR would like to THANK every one of you Ruggles & Stopitall Ltd's glorious customers, for your fantastic support & to wish you & your animals fabulously bright & naturally healthy horizons going forward

Help prevent mystery and cold-weather itch

  When?  Invisible Millennium Mites are active all year but especially in the cold.  Often resistant to chemicals...only to return days after their use. 
 Where?  Usually underbelly & inside front armpits &/or upper inside hind legs, top of back, feet, ears, bums, tails & sometimes sides of belly. 
 Who?  M.Mites regularly attack animals with fur, coats e.g. horses, cats, dogs, alpacas, donkeys, goats++  
  Help.  By starting your Ruggle-it prevention steps in good time, you'll build the barrier high to try to breeze through winter threats with no worries.  And remember, it'll deal with fleas/other critters for no extra cost.  Cheap, quick, no harsh chemicals.  Prevent & info HERE

.L  Devils lurking - please act fast
Devil <1>    Ticks are increasing year on year & attack in MORE UK locations.  Also nowadays, not just found in heathlands.  05/22 - already on animals in the UK...
Devil <2>    Use Prevention ahead of returning Harvest Mites.  Usually back each June to Nov'/Dec' annually.  Attack animals + humans.  Bites are insanely itchy They returned 07/22
Tips:  Deter them (as best you can!) before they cause havoc. 
A.   Ticks.  See P18, item #1 of Ruggle-it OANBooklet
B.   H. Mites.   See your relevant species "Prevention"  section in the Ruggle-it OANBooklet.  
   Tip.  Apply very regularly...not worth being frugal if preventing H.Mites!

L  Ants & Severe Itching with Pets?
.In the last few weeks, 'nesting garden ants' are back in the South/South West (possibly back elsewhere). 
Classic indicators - piles of 'dust-like soil' (and actual ants if they're visible, active)  +  possible "diggings" in the 'dust' by Blackbirds who seem to adore them!
TIP.   If pets lie/sit on grass, patios, steps AND are suddenly  itchy (with or without pin-prick bites), act fast with Ruggle-it Cooling Compote [page 15, OANBooklet]  OR  see the lower 1/2 of HERE
TIP.  Put blanket, bed on lawn to try to tempt pet to use it & not lie on the grass.  Shake out well before return to house.
TIP.  If not leaving Ants for Blackbirds, you can use Ruggle-it DIL Oil on the nest to kill/deter them but it'll need repeating (not harmful to Blackbirds although they may not like the taste!)
Other Critters?  Scroll down to 9/6/2020 item - "Pests"

L  Brain, 'Dementia'-like 'crash' AFTER Vacc vax
  ►A.   7th June '21  Personal experience - KR had a debilitating brain (neurological) 'meltdown' 3 days after the 2nd Vaccine
Symptoms - total brain 'mush', severe memory loss, loss of speech, mass headaches 24/7, dizziness, inability to type/spell, inability to form cohesive sentences (spoken/written), no energy +++. 
Minor-stroke-like symptoms - ended up in hospital. 
Others have similar symptoms so some Neurologists & Doctors acknowledge this 'side-effect' but with no idea yet how to 'help us'.  KR has tried many things to try to overcome it...


 ►B.   Misc' Updates
>  01-04/22 @ 7-10 months on.  When doing a lot of talking, KR's brain/neuro function is significantly compromised.  On talk-days, brain capacity nose-dives & can take 1-3 days of remaining mute to re-set...until next lot of talking!
The following endure but there are days that are less debilitating than others.   Memory problems (e.g. what is the kettle for, why is that document open, what did KR just type in a different document), 24/7 headaches, problems forming cohesive sentences (written/spoken), spelling, reaction times, trembling, light-headedness, facial numbness...
22/05/22 @ 11.5 months on.  After 2 hrs unavoidable intense talking, KR was taken to hospital (Exeter).  Seems likely it is career threatening ...
>  11/22@ 1.5 Years on.  Officially described at a course to help family/carers understand the challenges: 
  •  " Try to tell a story with NO words containing "E" in them...& begin to feel how slow, challenging, exhausting & depressing it feels daily! "

D  FREE-Load Key sites.  Must expose back, belly &/or thighs for just 15-20 mins, ideally twice a week, April to Sept' (UK)

Information correct
at today's date from
data provided to us
by Nestle as at today's date



Thank You if you

spread the word on this Orangutan injustice

L Like Chocolates, Quality Street, Roses...?
Why you might wish to AVOID Nestle, Quality Street (and Cadbury) chocolates IF you value Orangutans.
Nestle - currently 40% of all their Palm Oil (in their chocolates, other products) comes from 'unknown' sources with just 8% traceable. L  Correct at today's date from information provided by Nestle.
-  So 40% of every Quality Street (PLUS all their other chocolates & other products) is likely to have killed, starved, or caused harm to Orangutans (let alone forest damage)
The Cadbury chocolate manufacturing division uses NON-ethical Palm Oil.L   But Cadbury's Cake division uses responsibly sourced P.O.J.   Correct at today's date.
-  So we can enjoy Cadbury's cakes with a clear conscience but AVOID all their chocolates...?

Overnight forage gone = forced Fasting
-  Edinburgh's Royal 'Dick' Veterinary research - NEW findings are pretty shocking but brilliantly we can all action this! 
-  More than 4 hours having run out of food = fasting from a horse/donkey's perspective.  That's destructive to the gut...which pretty much runs the whole body.
But it's easily rectifiable!  The Pacefeeder slow-feeder (in stable or field) increased forage time by up to 120%, stopped c72% of bed eating or 'food searching', can aid Laminitic-prone or those on restricted fodder, saved hay.
-  No fasting = happier animal in the morning or whenever you top up the fodder, likelihood of being less demented to get food, happier tacking up (girthing), less likely you've inadvertently increased the risk of ulcers due to lack of saliva

"You were on the phone for ages, nothing was too much trouble back in 2017...& today in 2019 he's fantastic with Ruggle-it, Bio-Kult & your diet help" . 
Here for Monty's story


Caution still water - Toxic Algae
-  Caution dogs & horses & inactive water, puddles - toxic algal blooms. Some useful tips & links (see below) whether 2019 Autumn or Spring 2020. 
-  If in doubt, we suggest bump up the 'pure probiotics' until the sun's heat wanes & algal bloom risks abate.
-   Why?  As a stronger gut/immune is more likely to 'side-step' this
potentially life-threatening issue than a less-supported gut/immune.  Click Here

awareness as UK sun now carries NO ability to convert into Vitamin D3 (sun's angle is too low from UK Sept' to March)
(original posting 27.05.16)

[i.]  Summer 2018 - did you expose your back &/or belly at least once weekly April-Sept'? 
  >  If not, deficiency can be a risk (exposing arms is rarely enough).
[ii.]  Shock Vitamin D3 Test Results

"Out with horses 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year - surely I would not be Vit D3 deficient!  But, the pain in my knees then forced me to give up the horses & keeps me awake at night. 

Finally I did your Vit D Test Kit  - I was so shocked when

the result confirmed I was all but "severely deficient" at 18.1 nmol/L. 

So I now take your Vit D3 capsules & so wish I'd done your test way back!"

Mrs GH, Somerset  01.16

NOTE:  The NHS classify 50 nmol/L as "adequate"...all results under that are varying degrees of deficiency... 
>  If you're aged over 60, then your body works better at test-result  levels above 65-70 nmol/L 
>>  Knowing your Vitamin D3 levels is CRITICAL if the body is not to struggle unnecessarily or fail - joints, skin, energy, immunity, mood, mystery issues...basically every function!]

Rescue Centre's Goat mystery resolved
-  Rainbow Animal Sanctuary (Dorset) said "18 months of increasing hair loss, scaly, red & now sore [badly irritated] skin spread over both sides of Eileen's body.  Tried lots - nothing works. Vet perplexed.  Thank you so much - Eileen is hairy again & settled now - much love from all at Rainbow Sanctuary".   Here + Before & After photos




Harvest Mites cause chaos
-  Perhaps because of the super summer, these devils are causing mayhem with animals (large or small) this year...+ humans of course.  Can attack until Nov/Dec' ....
Stop the attacks + insanely itchy bites & cool the skin - see 15/6/18 item if you missed our 'early warning' back then.

Why avoid standard shampoos
What we knew instinctively...that Staphylococcus & Dermatophilus bacterial infections [serious invasions of the skin] are both associated with overwashing skin...which either destroys the protective flora or causes excess flora.
Mother Nature offers a clever solution...again!  Ruggle-it Shampoo has NO harsh chemicals, no soaps, no M.I. no Tea skin is left nourished, cleansed & non-traumatised.  Precis/article

Caution - animal sunburn risk. 
-  Do NOT Use Neat Ruggle-it Oil or Salve
on horses, donkeys, alpacas - April to mid October (UK)
See FAQ #20
(HERE) - safe alternatives, details (or see OANBooklet) 
Open wounds?  Suggestion.  Apply your Ruggle-it then use a total sunblock over the skin if the animal is out during the above months - open wounds skin has NO UV/sunburn you can literally fry them alive... 
-  After 5 days' of new skin growth, then you can stop the sunblock.



Tale with a Happy Ending...

.. Hope for Scab, Mud, Pastern, Leg, Staph ...
. Since 2009 R&SL highlighted this 'hope' (Dr Ferraro research). 
Latest research from Swiss Vets/research institute, confirm these issues ARE related to out of balance bacteria.
Thus, since 2009 R&SL have urged combining Ruggle-it WITH 'pure probiotics' (to help re-balance bacteria AND help the immune system response to 'have another try' at overcoming the issue once & for all).  Today we reiterate this!
