Companion animals, like people, require a healthy population of beneficial microflora to maintain overall good health, good digestion and a healthy immune system.
Cottonwood, AZ (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
“My pet is my best friend.” “My dog is like a child to me.” “My cat’s love is unconditional!” It’s true! Research studies have shown that having a pet reduces loneliness, strengthens social skills of older people, reduces depression, increases self esteem, and reduces stress better than the presence of a good friend. Being attached to a pet makes people feel happier.*
It’s no wonder that pet owners are willing to do whatever it takes to keep their pets healthy.
Pet Supplements Make Market History
Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ) reports that US pet supplement sales increased 8% from 2006 to 2007. Dog owners represent 38% of the animal supplement market while cat owners represent 6%. Even the recession has not blunted the desire of owners to keep their pets healthy with supplements, says Euromonitor International in a 2010 marketing report.
Health issues affect pets as well as owners and digestive issues are a major concern. Pets are susceptible to the unpleasant digestive effects of a modern lifestyle that include junk food, medication, lack of exercise, stress, and unnatural diets.
Nutri-Health Supplements, LLC, a leader in human probiotic supplements since 1987, has applied its knowledge of probiotics to the pet supplement market to help support the digestive and immune health of companion animals.
“Making a quality probiotic product is hugely different than producing any other type of supplement,” says Michael Lee, Nutri-Health Product Development Director. “We have over 20 years of experience in choosing the right strains and maintaining quality standards with human products. We make our pet probiotics with the same suppliers, the same ingredients and with the same attention to detail and quality.”
Nutri-Health Supplements sources its probiotic and digestive enzyme ingredients for pets from the same suppliers that it uses for its human products.
“We have very close relationships with our suppliers for our probiotic ingredients,” says Lee. “We visit their facilities and perform quality control audits to help ensure our supplements have the best probiotics available for both humans and pets. We do not rely on unknown raw material suppliers for these products.”
Probiotics Support Pet Digestive and Immune Health
Probiotics help support a balanced internal microflora colony in animals that promotes healthy elimination, digestion, immune health, bladder health, and colon health.
“Companion animals, like people, require a healthy population of beneficial microflora to maintain overall good health, good digestion and a healthy immune system,” says Trish Mahon, Nutri-Health President. “Giving a daily multi-probiotic supplement to your dog or cat helps support your pet’s natural digestive and immune processes.”
In addition to probiotics, Nutri-Health formulators have included broad-spectrum digestive enzymes for a holistic, balanced digestive supplement for pets. Eighteen enzymes address the digestive needs for all food groups.
“Just like humans, pets need digestive enzymes to help break down all types of food so that nutrients can be properly absorbed,” says Mahon. “Our digestive enzymes are vegetarian and work in both the pet’s stomach and the small intestine for broad-spectrum digestive support.”
- 5 probiotic strains
- 3 billion CFUs per serving
- 18 vegetarian enzymes
