Natural Supplements for Cats and Dogs
For humans looking to supplement their diet with vitamins and minerals, the options are endless. But what about supplements for your dog or cat?
A carefully chosen supplement can bring balance to an ailing dog or cat so their body’s natural healing abilities can kick in. In her appointments, Dr. Laurel uses applied kinesiology to make individualized recommendations about what supplements might be helpful to your furry friend.
Sunvet Animal Wellness Clinic only carries high-quality supplements. We trust that their potency and efficacy are consistent; therefore, the treatment outcome is dependable. Many of our items are considered nutraceuticals, which means they are supplements created from whole foods and sold in medicinal forms like pills, capsules, or tablets. These powerhouses have specific medicinal or physiological benefits that go beyond plain old good nutrition.
We want our furry patients to get the maximum benefit from any supplement they consume!
Does that mean that any issue your animal might have can be cured by supplements? Certainly not, but there are supplements that can provide ease, support or needed nourishment for just about any condition.
Top benefits of natural supplements for dogs and cats include…
For Musculoskeletal dis-ease – decrease inflammation, increase joint lubrication, and plump up cartilage cells.
For Skin issues – decrease inflammation, raise the animal’s allergy threshold, and help with both yeast and bacterial infections. Skin issues are quite often connected to gastrointestinal issues, so supporting the GI Tract with high-quality nutraceuticals can help with these issues as well.
For Gastrointestinal issues – decrease inflammation, coat the stomach and upper small intestine, address gut flora imbalance, further support a normally functioning intestine, and help supply nutrients to the body that would normally be acquired by a well-functioning digestive tract.
A key part of our holistic veterinary care philosophy is the idea that to be truly holistic, a veterinarian must consider all treatments available. For some of our patients, depending on the issue and their specific situation, a more conventional veterinary approach is what is in their best interest.
For cases like this, we also carry a full array of conventional veterinary pharmaceuticals to augment our holistic and natural approach to pet wellness,Including conventional medicines for thyroid disease, pain management, and treating infections, to name a few.
