Pet Kelp

From the manufacturer:

“Over 70 nutrients provide a dog or cat with the extra minerals and vitamins they need, plus the extra fruits and supplements they deserve- in simple, all-natural, great tasting formulas.

Our proprietary blend of kelps is harvested by us from the icy waters off Nova Scotia. All of our meats, fruits and vegetables are sourced from and produced in either the USA or Canada.

This is a brown marine plant that is high in minerals and contains vitamins A, B, E, D and K. It also contains sodium alginate (algin), which helps remove heavy metals from the dogs system.

Kelp is ideal for balancing glandular functioning in dogs. Iodine is essential for stimulating the thyroid gland. Kelp can help maintain a shiny and healthy skin and coat in dogs. Dogs with dry skin, skin allergies and alopecia (hair loss) can benefit from eating kelp. After a diet that includes kelp for at least six months, these animals will often have shiny, thick coats. Their skin problems can improve; dryness and itchiness will also reduce.

The protein content in kelp is effectively used to manage tissue repair in dogs. Three weeks or more of use can also control flea manifestations in dogs.

Another benefit of iodine in kelp is that it helps to better manage dogs’ weight by improving their metabolism. Experience shows that with improved metabolism due to better glandular functioning, the overall health of dogs on kelp improves, their energy increases and they suffer from few infections. The high fiber content in kelp has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-rheumatic properties that benefit our pets.

Kelp has been used to reduce dental plaque and tartar (calculus) in dogs for several years now, and the results have been impressive. ProDen, the Sweden based manufacturer of PlaqueOff, has conducted extensive trial studies to show that Ascophyllum nosodum, a common brown kelp found in many oceans of the world, can help to reduce plaque and tartar buildup in dogs within just a few weeks. However, the mechanisms by which this kelp works its wonders have remained unclear.

By all accounts it appears that some bioactive component of the kelp courses through the bloodstream to end up in the mouth- perhaps through salivary secretions or by other activities within the tooth sockets. Regardless, it works- and it does so with a broad margin of safety.”

We look forward to seeing you and helping you with your pet’s needs.
