They’ll run quicker. Fetch faster. Even leap tall bookshelves in a single bound. When pets take supplements, you’ll notice the difference —it helps them live their life to the very fullest by easing and even preventing symptoms. And from dental health to mental health, there’s an all-natural solution for dealing with almost any issue.
YOUR CAT’S HAVING TROUBLE GOING? URINE LUCK.
TRY URINARY TRACT SUPPLEMENTS.
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. Urinary tract health supplements help fight off and prevent infection. They also ward off even more serious conditions such as crystals and stones. And even if your pet has no history of urinary problems, it’s a great idea to use supplements as a preventative measure.
These supplements are made from hemp, a different species of cannabis than marijuana. Hemp products range from zero THC to only trace amounts (that means .03% or less) but have lots of soothing CBD. They can help maintain normal emotional balance, calm anxiety and overexcitement, as well as ease physical problems like immune function, inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, seizures and pain. There are lots of delivery options including oils, biscuits, soft chews, capsules, salves, gels and even products that mix it with food, such as peanut butter. We carry only high quality full-spectrum, organic hemp products made with C02 extraction—but for now, they’re only available in store.
A SHINY COAT JUST SCREAMS “PET ME.”
TRY SKIN AND COAT SUPPLEMENTS.
As the star of your social media accounts, your pet wants to look their best. But dogs and cats can only produce some of the fatty acids they need to keep their skin and coat healthy. The ones they can’t produce are called “essential” fatty acids, and these have to be obtained through diet and supplements — except for omega 3, which pets can only get 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 omega 3 DHA rather than omega 3 EPA, as DHA is key in the development of brain and eye function.
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. Joint supplements can keep your dog jumping onto the furniture well into his old age. 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. They’re recommended preventatively for large breed dogs starting as early as 2-3 years old and preventatively for all dogs 5 years of age or older. They’re also a good idea for pets with active lifestyles and pets who are performance, agility, and service dogs.
WHAT’S EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN BELLY RUBS? BELLY DIGESTION.
TRY DIGESTIVE AID SUPPLEMENTS.
Just because your pet loves eating garbage off the street doesn’t mean they have a stomach of steel. In fact, digestive trouble is one of the top ten reasons pets end up at the vet. Supplements like digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics can help. Digestives enzymes are key for breaking down food to unlock vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Probiotics flood the system with beneficial bacteria that assist in digestion and nutrient absorption plus strengthen the immune system. Together, these two kinds of supplements make digestion a lot easier.
If you think you’re a lazy flosser, just imagine how your dog feels. Dental health is a vital part of your dog’s overall well-being. Gum disease is a buildup of plaque (a combination of food and bacteria) along the gum line that then inflames the gums. When inflamed, gums separate from the teeth and form pockets that collect even more bacteria (ew). It not only leads to abscesses, loose teeth, and severe pain, but the bacteria can actually spread through the bloodstream to affect the kidneys, liver, heart, and brain. Most dogs will have irreversible gum disease by 2-3 years of age, so it’s important to start supplements as early as possible. And it’s never too late to start as well, since it prevents further damage. Our dental health products use natural ingredients such as tea tree oil, green tea extract, marine algae and grape seed extract to break down plaque buildup.
Even though dogs can handle being exposed to a lot of stuff (they literally lick the sidewalk, after all), you still need to take good care of their immune systems. When your pet isn’t feeling great, immune supplements can help eliminate harmful waste that builds up due to infection and inflammation. Immune supplements are also important as a preventative measure. 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.
Attacking the toilet paper roll. Going to town on your guest’s pants leg. They’re different ways of saying the same thing: I am so stressed out. Some pets are triggered by situations, such as car rides, visitors, or loud noises. Some pets have more serious issues like fear aggression or physical illness from dealing with anxiety. Other pets are just naturally a little more sensitive. Calming aids can help in all these scenarios.
