DOG & CAT SUPPLEMENTS

 

YOUR LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL. EVEN IF THERE ARE CONDITIONS.

For pets, peace of mind is all about their mental and physical health. If your pet needs some extra love in certain areas, try supplements to help ease and even prevent symptoms. They’re also great for protecting and strengthening against the development of long-term health conditions. Check out the different types of cat and dog supplements and how they can support your pet in feeling their best.  

 

Growing up is hard. For puppies and kittens, it’s also a nutritionally demanding stage. Offering them extra support will help them grow into their most vital, healthy selves. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain and eye development, while probiotics support digestion and immunity.

  • If your BFF is starting to feel a little creaky, hip & joint supplements can help. Providing the building blocks of healthy cartilage and joint fluid, plus active ingredients like herbs and CBD, may help reduce inflammation. For prevention, some vets say to start supplements as early as 2-3 years old for large breeds or at 5 years for cats and other dogs. They’re also great for active pets. It may take up to 30 days to see results. Continue daily maintenance to keep them healthy and comfortable.

  • Your pet knows when they look their best. Turns out, dogs and cats can only produce some of the fatty acids they need for optimal skin and coat health. The ones they can’t produce are called “essential” fatty acids, and these must be obtained through diet and supplements. These fatty acids strengthen pets’ skin and coat, and other ingredients like CBD can help reduce inflammation.

     


     

  • Destructive behavior or situational anxiety can be very difficult on your pet and both can be signs of stress or anxiety. No matter the scenario, calming aids can offer support. Ingredients range from herbs and trace minerals, to CBD and amino acids. Remember to test calming supplements before a stressful event to gauge effectiveness.

  • Your cat’s sitting pretty, cat napping, purring…then, hairball. It can really ruin a moment. When cats groom themselves, they ingest hair. This can lead to the formation of hairballs, which can cause digestive discomfort and even vomiting. Supplements can strengthen the skin and coat to reduce the amount of ingested hair. They can also lubricate the digestive system, which can help ease the passage of hairballs when they do come around.

  • Just because your pet loves eating everything doesn’t mean they have a stomach of steel. Digestive issues are among the top reasons pets end up at the vet. Additionally, 60-80% of a pet’s immune system is in the digestive system. Digestive enzymes help by breaking down food to unlock vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Probiotics add beneficial bacteria that assist in digestion and nutrient absorption, plus strengthen the immune system.

  • Even though pets can handle being exposed to a lot of stuff they still need immune support. For starters, immune supplements may offer prevention against yucky infections. When your pet isn’t feeling great, immune supplements may help eliminate harmful waste that builds up due to infection and inflammation. Immune-boosting superfoods like medicinal mushrooms, berries, and leafy greens are common ingredients along with antioxidants, trace nutrients and CBD.

  • If you think you’re a lazy flosser, just imagine how your pet feels. Dental health is vital to their well-being. Gum disease and inflammation can cause pockets of bacteria to form (ew). This can lead to abscesses, loose teeth, severe pain, and kidney, liver, heart and brain issues. It’s never too late to start, but it’s good to start dental supplements as early as possible. Ingredients like tea tree oil, green tea extract, marine algae and grape seed extract help break down plaque buildup. Dental chews can also provide mechanical plaque and tartar removal.

  • Even though it’s kinda cute when pets sneeze, seasonal or environmental allergies can be uncomfortable for them. Symptoms include sneezing, watery or irritated eyes, hot spots, recurring ear infections, chewing on paws, and any other excessive licking, chewing, or scratching. Allergy supplements may help to prevent allergy symptoms and boost the immune system. Recent studies even indicate that probiotic and omega-3 fish oil supplements may help prevent allergies from developing when given to puppies in the first year of life.
  • Teaching your furry friend how to use a litter box or wait to go outside was no small feat, but it’s also just the beginning. It’s important to stay aware of your pet’s urinary health as they get older, especially if they’re on a dry food diet or don’t drink enough water. Urinary tract health supplements could help fight off and prevent infection. They may also ward off even more serious conditions such as crystals and stones.

  • Whether it’s from the natural effects of aging or specific health conditions, even pets can show cognitive signs of aging. Some supplements, like CBD, are considered neuroprotectants. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements are important for brain health and can reduce inflammation. If your pet is getting older, cognitive supplements can offer them the support they need to stay sharp between the (furry) ears. After all, they’re always puppies and kittens at heart.

    • Your pet takes up a whole lot of room in your heart. When it comes to their own heart health, supplements can be a great way to offer extra support. Fish oils contain omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA that may help to stabilize heart muscle cells. Other amino acids like taurine and l-carnitine are found in most foods but can also be supplemented. Hawthorn berry can be beneficial in improving blood supply and stabilizing cardiac activity. Don’t forget that poor dental health can affect the heart, so it’s important stay on top of regular teeth cleanings.

Solutions include brushing, sprays, gels, and powders.

DIGESTION SUPPLEMENTS

how can i help my dog or cat's DIGESTION OR tummy troubles? 

Digestive aid supplements and probiotics are great for supporting digestion and maintaining a strong immune system. Dogs and cats have a much shorter digestive tract relative to their body size and the digestive system is one of the first lines of defense against pathogens.

Most pets can benefit from being on a probiotic, which work to keep harmful microbes at bay, improve digestion and boost immunity.

SKIN & COAT SUPPLEMENTS

Essential fatty acids are important in keeping your dog or cat’s skin and coat healthy. Turns out, some of these acids must be obtained through diet and supplements. Omega 3 can only be obtained in supplement form. If your pet has inflammatory issues, you’ll want oils higher in omega 3s and lower in Omega 6s. If you have a young pet or senior animal, look for supplements higher in Omegas.

JOINT HEALTH & AGING SUPPLEMENTS

WHAT CAN I GIVE MY dog and Cat TO HELP MAINTAIN THEIR JOINT HEALTH?

You know how your knees start killing you when you take your dog for a run? Your furry friend may be feeling a little creaky too. The most common form of joint problems is osteoarthritis (OA), the degeneration of cartilage and the formation of new bone at the joint. Most cases of OA in pets occur in association with some predisposed joint disease or injury within the joint.

Hip and joint supplements usually contain glucosamine and chondroitin (some also include MSM and other beneficial nutrients). These supplements work to help lubricate the joints, help maintain healthy cartilage, and help prevent pets from having pain in their hips and joints from aging.

When to start on a hip and joint supplement depends on their size and activity level. Highly active pets and working dogs can benefit from supplementation for most of their lives. This means supplementing small breed dogs at the age of 6-8, medium breeds at 5-7, and large breeds at 4-6. Some giant breeds like a Great Danes can benefit as early as 3 years of age. Cats usually benefit from supplementation starting around 8-10 years of age.

WHAT ARE SOME SUPPLEMENTS THAT CAN SUPPORT SENIOR DOGS AND CATS AS THEY AGE?

Oil supplements (Omega 3s) can help support pets with heart disease and inflammation both inside the body and on the skin.

Probiotics can help maintain a healthy immune system and healthy digestion.  

Antioxidant-rich supplements are beneficial for cell repair, slowing signs of aging (including both memory loss and cognitive dysfunction) and reducing inflammation.

OVERALL WELLNESS & IMMUNITY SUPPLEMENTS

how can i support my Dog and cats immune system?

Immune supplements are great for when your pet isn’t feeling great and as a preventative measure against illness. They keep your pet’s organs working properly by ensuring the regeneration of vital parts and contain antioxidants, which are powerful nutrients.

For brand new puppies, immune supplements are a must. Like the rest of their body, puppy immune systems are still growing and developing. Plus, they’re being challenged by disease-causing agents in small doses from vaccinations. Building a puppy’s immune system also provides added protection against parasites, viruses and bacteria.

What is collagen and why IS IT GOOD FOR cats and dogs?

Collagen is the primary protein in a pet’s connective tissue, skin, and bones. As pets age they lose some of their capacity to produce collagen and supplementation can help. Collagen helps rebuild cartilage, is a primary protein in a pet’s connective tissue, skin and bones and provides 18 of the 20 amino acids the body needs to create protein.
