The natural way to keep your pet healthy

Whether your pet is an OAP (old age pet) or a young pup, as an owner you want to make sure they enjoy a healthy and happy life with you.

With many pet owners now looking for natural alternatives to support their pet’s health, natural animal health company, Nutravet offer some key natural ingredients to help.

Natural supplements can benefit dogs and cats throughout all stages of their lives and can help to maintain their joints, gut health and keep their skin and coat shiny.

A spokesperson for Nutravet comments: “There is so many pet supplements on the market and it’s important to know which is best for your pet with regards to their health and wellbeing.

“On the face of it some pet supplements can appear good value for money, however many are very low strength and low purity. The Nutravet range is recommended by vets worldwide and are of the highest quality and provide the best value.  We aim to help animals live a healthy active life, today and tomorrow and want to offer pet owners the highest quality natural healthcare product to aid and support their pet’s wellbeing.”

Nutravet offer key ingredients to help support your pet’s health:

Boswellia extract – a plant extract that supports the natural systems that control inflammation. It plays an important role in maintaining smooth and comfortable joint movement and does not cause the damage to cartilage that many anti-inflammatories do.

Glucosamine HCL and Chondroitin sulphate – these two ingredients are often combined for joint support products. Glucosamine combined with chondroitin can help to give extra joint protection and is also an important building block for cartilage, as well as supporting joint structure.

Glucosamine HCL is the highest quality, purest form of the natural ingredient and has more glucosamine per gram for improved cartilage formation. Chondroitin Sulphate E from squid cartilage is the most ethically sourced form of Chondroitin.

Probiotics – they can have a positive effect on an animal’s digestive system and play a crucial role in your pet’s overall health. Probiotics help to promote friendly bacteria within their gut, as well as replenish the natural balance of gut bacteria. The high strength formula of Nutrabio administers 4 billion Enterococcus faecium cells per 2ml notch to support the guts own healthy bacteria.

Probiotics for dogs can help to maintain long-term gut health and help with conditions such as, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic or infectious diarrhoea and pets with a history of gut-related problems. They are also important during recovery or post-operative care where drugs can cause digestive and tummy upset.

Omega-3s – these are essential fatty acids that the body needs but cannot produce naturally. Often dogs and cats unwittingly receive an unnatural diet, which is too high in omega-6 fatty acids derived from high levels of cereals and vegetable proteins.

Special omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA from refined fish oils are particularly important to counteract the omega-6 imbalance. Supplementing your pet’s diet with omega-3, can not only support their skin and coat health, but also maintain healthy brain function.
