The Nutri-Vet Shed Defense Soft Chews contains 6 different fatty acids, including omega 3, that are derived from fish oil. These ingredients promote good skin and coat health for your dog, preventing excessive shedding. One smoky flavored tablet should be administered to your dog for each 20 lbs. of their body weight for 4 to 6 weeks for best results. Nutri-Vet Shed Defense Soft Chews can be given as treats or be placed in the dogs food.
Salmon oil is an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.
Brewer’s dried yeast is an excellent source of protein, trace minerals and B complex vitamins.
Garlic contains a number of nutrients and sulfur compounds that can reduce the production of inflammatory prostaglandins.
Zinc is necessary for formation of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin).
What is the "Natural Smoke Flavor" in your soft chews for dogs?
Natural smoke flavor is made by spraying smoke from a wood fire with water and condensing it into a liquid. The undesirable components separate from the water-soluble smoke and are then filtered and removed, and the healthful and flavorful parts, being water-soluble, are retained in the condensate. The process is natural and yields only the natural, healthy, flavor-rich smoke elements in liquid form.
Are Omega-3 fatty acids as important for dogs as they are for people?
I think so. Dogs, like people can produce some, but not all of the fatty acids they need. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) that cannot be created within an animal’s body must be obtained from food or supplements. Although most pet foods contain omega-6 fatty acid in the form of linoleic acid, the levels of omega-3 which optimize skin and coat conditions, as well as promote canine health and vitality may not be sufficient.
I noticed that you have tablets, soft chews, biscuits and liquid forms of hip and joint supplements for dogs, why so many? Why so many forms?
I don’t know about you, but I like variety in my diet! We try to make it as easy as possible to ensure your pet eats the supplements we make. What better way, than to have a biscuit in the morning and a liver flavored chewable at bed time.
