The advancements made in dietary supplements are immense – both for humans and for pets. Everyday, without fail, I faithfully take my minerals and vitamin B12, swallowing them down with a nice cool glass of lemon or cucumber infused water – all of this helps me feel ready to take on the day. My dogs, all four of them, stare at me while I’m enjoying my tasty drink and my health-packed goodies…and I feel a bit guilty. I feed them a quality, mostly raw food diet, but I also want to ensure that they get enough Omega-3. So just to be sure… I decided to search out some great natural pet supplements for optimal animal health. Enter stage right: NOW® Pets dietary supplements
Putting The Wag In Our Dogs Tail #NOWpetsSweeps
NOW Pets is a new line of quality pet supplements from NOW®, specifically formulated to support optimal health and wellness for dogs and cats. Formulated with the guidance of Dr. Barbara Royal, DVM, CVA, a renowned Midwestern veterinarian and pioneering expert in holistic animal care, the NOW Pets line offers products specifically tailored to address today’s most common pet health concerns. For two weeks I had my pups try two specifc supplements to address what I think is needed for my fuzzy family members – these included:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
My Shih Tzu’s are all young, healthy and vibrant and I’d like to keep it that way for as long as possible. My littlest dude, Spike, a 4 pound Chihuahua, gives me a bit of concern due to his age – he’s 12. I work in healthcare, so I understand the importance of a healthy immune system. NOW Pets Omega-3 Support is formulated to provide the important Omega-3 fatty acids dogs and cats need to help support joint health, normal brain function, and a normal immune response to seasonal challenges. Interestingly enough, after taking this supplement for a couple of weeks my younger pups are easily jumping up, on, over and through their beginner agility training toys…. who knew we were going to try agility? I didn’t, but honestly their focus and stamina seemed to improve every couple of days – so now, we’re trying something new and I think I need to up my own intake of Omega-3 just to keep up with them!
Gastro Intestinal Care
I know….not as sexy a topic as Omega-3, but life is real. And for our little Lulu, her tummy can sometimes be problematic. NOW Pets G.I. Support aids in reducing the occasional loose stools due to transport, boarding, or dietary changes to a pet’s daily routine, and helps with occasional gastric distress. Lulu doesn’t really need those excuses, sometimes it’s a little too much protein at one time. How did we learn this about our darling little girl? Well, you don’t want to know. My husband is still recovering. Let’s just say, we’ve learned from trial and error. What we found was that by adding a good quality G.I. support supplement our little sweet angel stays just that, and our carpets stay clean. For some odd reason she would have a reaction in the middle of the night, just like a human child with cold or flu symptoms – the night time is when her rump liked to party. But not any more – and trust me, we all sleep a little better now!
