Supplements for a Healthy Pet

Your pet's diet is the most important part to promoting a healthy life for your cat or dog. However, adding supplements, appropriate for your pet's specific needs and lifestyle, can help lead to a long, healthy and happy life.  The following supplements should be considered for your cat or dog.

Digestive Enzymes
When food is not properly broken down it may cause responses in the body that can lead to inflammation, allergies, digestive issues and other chronic conditions . Improving digestion and utilization of nutrients can help to prevent and eliminate many of these responses.  We would suggest K9 Digestive Enzymes and Power Probiotic  to help your dog's increase absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
For cats, use Lypozyme or Soothing Digestive Relief.

Essential Fatty Acids
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are important in the diet, but cannot be produced by the body. They help cardiovascular function, nourishes the skin and coat, as well as the lining of the digestive tract.  In addition, omega 3 fatty acids reduces the inflammation process in the body.  Essential fatty acid supplements are not all created equal, Amazing Omegas For Pets is a powerful supplement, whose quality and purity just can't be compared.  It is  third-party tested to ensure the product is free of mercury and delivers the highest nutritional value.   
Extra Support for Puppies and Kittens
Puppies and kittens are more vulnerable than mature animals to parasites and disease because their immune systems are still developing.  Puppies and kittens diets can be helped by supplementing with Colostrum for Pets to help boost their immature immune system.   Colostrum for Pets has been shown in research studies to enhance the digestive system, immune function and repair of skin collagen, bone cartilage and nerve tissue. 

Aging Animals
As animals age they need extra support to stay healthy and maintain their best quality of life. Often the first sign of aging is stiffness.  We would recommend starting pets on extra joint support such as our,  Arthritis & Joint Support Kit , which is recommended by veterinarians and promotes joint repair,reduces inflammation and increases mobility.

Also, adding a  senior vitamin and extra antioxidants to your cat or dog's protocol can help fight the damage caused by free radicals and give their immune system a little extra help.
