Depending on their breed, 70 to 80 percent of dogs and up to 90 percent of cats suffer from some type of arthritis as they age. Because nutrition is extremely important to a pet's health, Tomlyn is proud to introduce natural animal health supplements for hip and joint pain, Hip Bones and Hip Flex.
"Part of our strategy is to identify best-in-class products to add to the Tomlyn line," said Teresa Hanson, U.S. director of marketing and communications. "Overby Farm has worked closely with university experts and practicing veterinarians to capture the healthy benefits of tart cherries and berries to develop Hip Bones and Hip Flex for companion animals. The natural enzymes and antioxidant compounds can help ease the discomfort many pets feel from daily exercise and activity."
Hip Bones treats contain tart cherry concentrate that is loaded with naturally occurring compounds that can help alleviate discomfort and inflammation, which is important in maintaining a dog's healthy lifestyle. Hip Bones Jr. is also available for smaller dogs and as training treats for all breeds.
Hip Flex animal health supplements are loaded with whole cherries, tart cherry concentrate, cherry pulp, blueberry and cranberry fibers, and a low-level glucosamine for added lubricity, and are available for both dogs and cats.
Hip Flex Canine, a soft chewable supplement, is ideal for even the pickiest eaters. It does not contain wheat, corn or soy. Hip Flex Feline, which promotes agility, has added salmon and tuna to entice even the pickiest felines.
"At Overby Farm, we've had tremendous success in formulating products for active and aging pets," said Carol Jones Adams, co-owner of Overby Farm. "We will continue working closely with our university and veterinarian partners to develop and manufacture new products, and we're excited about our new partnership with Tomlyn, who will provide us with marketing, sales, distribution and merchandising support throughout the U.S."
