Nutraceuticals for the Health of Your Pet

Nutraceuticals for the Health of Your Pet

When it comes to medications, vitamins and supplements for your pet, it can be difficult to know which brands to trust.  Your pets depend on you to make good choices regarding their health. At Rivertown Animal Hospital in Stillwater, we are pleased to offer Nutramax products.  Nutramax Laboratories manufactures a line of products for joint health, liver support and many other vital functions for dogs and cats.

Why We Trust Nutramax

Currently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate any type of Nutraceutical.  Nutramax does extensive research and testing on all products before releasing them for sale to veterinarians and pet stores.  They use superior ingredients to ensure the well-being and longevity of your beloved pets.  The company, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is a trusted name in the pet care industry.

Nutramax Products That We Recommend

The majority of our clients report good results with the Nutramax products recommended by their veterinarian at Rivertown Animal Hospital. We specifically encourage our clients to give their pets the following:

  • Dasuquin Advanced: In January 2015, Nutramax Laboratories released its Dasuquin Advanced product. It improved upon its already successful Dasuquin product. Both contain glucosamine, avocado and soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), and chondroitin sulfate. Dasuquin Advanced also has alpha-lipoic acid and Boswellia serrata extract. This extract offers superior inflammation control while alpha-lipoic acid aids in producing the suppression of inflammation.
  • Proviable: Proviable kits contain live probiotic microorganisms, probiotics, and prebiotics. Taken daily, they may help your dog or cat have firm stools and encourage proper intestinal balance.
  • Omega 3: This supplement helps to promote coat and skin health for your dog or cat, as well as general overall wellness. This can include the heart, nervous system, brain, kidneys, and joints. The primary ingredients in Nutramax Omega 3 are fatty acids taken from cold water fish and salmon.
  • Cranberry Supplements: This cranberry extract product helps to support a healthy urinary tract in your pet. Its compounds are especially helpful in limiting the growth of bacteria.
