Katy's Journey Home

                   

Katy belonged to a loving family and all was well until they moved and abandoned her, tied to a tree in front of a vet’s office. Concerned for her safety and not wanting to see her destroyed, the veterinarians kept Katy for six-years. They tried to adopt her out a few times…

A Salute to a Gentleman

Why Gentle Barn + Puremedy? About 10 years ago, one Autumn morning in Topanga, CA I sipped my tea and turned on my favorite show, CBS Sunday morning. Little did I know my world was about to change forever. Ellie Laks, the founder of The Gentle Barn just glowed as she introduced the television audience to some of her animals and told us their stories. She talked about how she started The Gentle Barn organically, giving a home to some severely neglected petting zoo animals. Within 2 hours we were face to face. I had met a true soul sister. I brought her several cases of my Original Healing Ointment to use on her rescued animals to help them heal. Since then, all of their animals use Puremedy when they have a cut, wound, burn, stitches, infection, insect bites, fly bites, skin rashes, inflammation, or just a spot that the Veterinarian is unable to diagnose. Not only do all of her animals use Puremedy, but her family and friends do as well.
