We often hear the saying “you are what you eat”. Scientific research increasingly reveals this is as true for pets as it is for humans.
The food you feed your pet nourishes the gut, and in turn affects not only gut health, but also immunity and overall well-being. Our dogs and cats don’t “catch colds” like we can, but their immune systems are still incredibly important. Good bacteria, or probiotics, in your pet’s gut are key.
Why is gut health so important for our pets?
There are many reasons why we need to maintain a healthy gut microbiome for our pet. This includes:
- Stronger Immune System
- Supports a happier tummy and firmer, less smelly stool
- Makes them have less anal gland issues
- Gives them better smelling breath
- Promotes healthier skin and coat
- Makes their urine have less odour and acidity
- Helps them “bounce back” more quickly after illness
- Supports improved overall health
Signs of poor gut health
Signs of digestive system disease can include:
- Excessive drooling
- Vomiting or regurgitation
- Loss of appetite
- Abdominal pain and bloating
- Straining to defecate
Relationship between gut health and immunity
Did you know about 70% of your pet’s immune system is related to the gastrointestinal tract? A healthy gut-friendly diet helps keep the gut, and in turn the immune system, happy and healthy.
A healthy gut microbiome can help strengthen the immune system, and help your pet fight off harmful bacteria, viruses, and everyday toxins as well as prevent allergies!
In a perfectly functioning gut, the mucosal lining of the intestines is permeable in order to absorb nutrients from digested food into the bloodstream. However, damage to this lining caused by toxins, stress, and inflammation can cause the intestinal lining to become leaky, leading to toxins, allergens, bacteria and yeast to seep into the bloodstream. This is called leaky gut. Overtime, leaky gut can lead to several health issues including thyroid disorders, anxiety, allergies, cancer, chronic inflammation, and arthritis, among others.

Unfortunately, our pets can’t tell us when they’re feeling unwell, so it’s up to us to proactively support their health at it’s very core.

Specially formulated with:
Glutamine: is an amino acid used in supplements to help treat and prevent gastrointestinal damage and inflammation in the pancreas (pancreatitis). There have also been numerous studies to show it may be helpful for conditions such as bowel disease, parvovirus and chemotherapy.
Vitamin C: Just like humans, Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant to keep us healthy and alive. This is the same for our pets! It helps by removing potentially harmful free radicals in the body and reducing inflammation.
Magnesium: This mineral plays a crucial role in your pets body as it is needed for almost all of their bodily functions, including their mood! It helps to relax the body internally, helping with digestive and urinary issues.
Calcium: Our pets need calcium for the same reason us humans need it. Calcium is the building blocks for strong and healthy bones as well as general health. Animals that are deficient in calcium should require a supplement to ensure there are no imbalances in the body!
Zinc: Is an important part in your pets diet as it contributes to a healthy immune system, improves skin & coat health and can help with thyroid function.
B-Complex Vitamins: These vitamins are integral to your pet’s nervous system, the immune system, their metabolism and brain function. In particular, B Vitamins can help with diarrhea, dehydration & infections to just name a few.
Biotin: This vitamin is essential in maintaining healthy skin, coat and nails for both cats and dogs. Biotin supplements are also important for improved energy, healthy digestion and normal growth.
Vitamin D: is an important mirco-nutrient that is needed by all animals. One of the main functions it helps with is bone and teeth development. It can also help with hormone balance and digestion. Due to the limited amounts of vitamin D our dogs get from the sun, including it in your pet’s diet is essential!
