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 that they enjoy a happy and healthy life with you. Many pet owners are now looking for natural alternatives to help support their pet’s ongoing health, due to concerns over the long-term effects of drugs.

Natural pet supplements can benefit dogs and cats throughout all stages of their lives and help to maintain their joints, gut health, skin and brain health. There are 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.

A spokesperson for nutra vet says: “On the face of it many pet supplements can appear good value, however many are very low strength and low purity. The nutra vet range is recommended by vets worldwide and are of the highest quality and provide the best value.

At nutra vet we aim to help animals live a healthy active life, today and tomorrow and want to offer pet owners the highest quality natural healthcare products to aid and support their pet’s wellbeing.

Key ingredients for maintaining a pet’s health, include:

Boswellia extract – is 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 – 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, which is used in nutra quin+.

Probiotics – can have a positive effect on an animal’s digestive system and play a crucial role in an animal’s overall health. Probiotics help to promote friendly bacteria within your pet’s gut, as well as replenish the natural balance of gut bacteria. The high strength formula of nutra bio administers 4 billion Enterococcus faecium cells per 2ml notch to support the guts own healthy bacteria.
Probiotics 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-3’s- are essential fatty acids that the body needs but cannot produce naturally. Often cats and dogs 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 oil 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.

If you are worried about your pet’s health, consult your vet as they will be best placed to offer the best advice with regards to your pet’s health needs. Whether it’s maintaining a pet’s joints and mobility or helping them recover from surgery, nutra vet have a natural solution to help.
