Top 10 Ways Supplements Can Help Your Dog and Cat

Natura Petz Organics Top 10 Ways Supplements Can Help Your Dog and Cat

Plant and marine based herbs and supplements do a lot more than build nutritional layers into your pet’s diet.

They also can help provide powerful tools to support immune health and help fight infections, disease and conditions that commonly undermine health and longevity in our dogs and cats. 

The best class of plant and marine based nutrients are called adaptogens. Adaptogens are healthy plant chemicals that are naturally coded to help identify metabolic, oxidative, physiological, biochemical, physical, emotional, environmental, immune, central nervous and neurological stress and dysfunction in your pet's body. Once an irregularity has been identified, adaptogens nutritionally work to establish balance by carrying out a read/repair/restore function in all body systems.

Below discover how first class adaptogens may support optimal animal wellness in your and cat by helping:

  1. Balance the immune system. Balanced immunity is like armor for your pet’s body. An immune system that is out of balance experiences inflammation, which is a CATALYST for disease. Examples of common immune disorders include allergies, arthritis, urinary tract infections, stone formation and skin disorders. Cat’s Claw  helps support balanced immunity, limits inflammation and its adaptogen content helps provide potential whole body system support toward balance. 
  2. Support digestion. Supplements help support balanced digestion. Immunity resides in the gut. Proper digestive health enables your pet’s body to absorb nutrients. If immunity is compromised, your pet can experience digestive upset, poor nutrition due to decreased nutrient absorption (even if you feed premium food!) and open up the pathway for disease. Manayupa helps support native gut flora and balanced digestive health in dogs and cats. 
  3. Build resistance. Supplemental nutrition can help provide a fortified defense against common threats to your pet’s health including chronic allergies, skin disorders, urinary tract infections, stone formation, fleas and tick bites and more. Sangre de Grado is an important plant that can be used to address infection internally and externally. 
  4. Fight infection. Many plants and marine extracts naturally fight infection due to their anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-septic and anti-fungal . For example, Camu Camu is a water soluble antioxidant, which may help provide a defense again bacteria and viruses, plus it helps stimulate collagen production, which is the building bocks for bone, eye, teeth, skin and coat health in your dog and cat.
  5. Reduce effects of wear, tear, age and genetics. Supplements can help maintain joint and connective tissue health. Some herbs can help rebuild collagen, directly related to joints, bones and muscles; important if your pet has arthritis, is a senior pet, a large breed or a performing/working dog or cat. Sacha Inchi is a plant-based Omega 3 which contains critical macro and micro minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and other essential nutrients to help nourish joint and connective tissue health over your pet's lifetime. 
  6. Support a potential condition. If your pet experiences anxiety, your pet’s body produces excess cortisol and sends stress signals that negatively affect every body system. An herb can reduce the stress siren, calm and soothe each body system, enable your pet to remain calm and to reduce disease susceptibility from prolonged exposure to stress. Passion flower is one of many natural plants that help promote a calm, peaceful, happy dog and cat. 
  7. Reduce health care costs and may help support longevity. Supplementing your pet’s health throughout their lifetime can result in lower overall vet costs. Also, long term studies have been conducted which show how long term use of an herb such as Spirulina may support longevity by supplying critical nutrition, supporting immune health, limiting inflammation, resulting in potential reduced health care costs and more time and improved quality of life for your pet.
  8. Address the unknown. Supplements can help address the unknown and give you peace of mind because you don’t always know if your pet has a dietary deficiency or an un-diagnosed disease. Adaptogens perform a read/repair/restore function in that they address stress and imbalance in the body and then nutritionally work to promote balance in all body systems through the delivery of critical vitamins, minerals, oils, enzymes and more PLUS primary and secondary metabolites, which help address deficiency and support performance in the animal body. Maca is a well researched adaptogen that may help promote whole body system balance in your dog and cat. 
  9. Provide a holistic alternative to synthetic, pharmaceutical drugs. Plant and marine extracts contain natural antibiotics, antioxidants plus a variety of natural plant chemicals which may help work to address the root cause of a health problem instead of suppressing symptoms. Most plants contain 200 or more healthy natural plant chemicals which help address all body systems of your dog and cat. Synthetic drugs are isolated and tend to suppress symptoms, causing the symptoms to disappear, but the problem still exists! Achiote contains natural antibiotics and antioxidants plus a host of other immune boosting and infection fighting natural plant chemicals. Please use our search function if your pet has a specific health need to help you discover a suggested plant or marine product which may help benefit the wellness of your dog and cat. 
  10. Healthier and happier pets. Numerous studies prove that supplements enable our pets to feel better, to thrive, and potentially live longer, healthier lives which benefits your entire pet family! Turmeric has been well studied for its potential health effects to help your dog and cat live a healthier, happier, longer and stronger life.
