Specifically, they are both packed with L-tryptophan and a high proportion of magnesium, substances that are important for the function of the nervous system and muscles. They have a relaxing effect on the behaviour of cats and dogs, reducing their anxiousness or nervousness in stressful situations (i.e. travelling, fireworks or vet visit).
Psyllium Plus Cat
If you have a cat, you're probably familiar with, the dreaded, hairballs! All cats groom themselves and as a result they swallow hair. Hairballs occur when this hair gathers in the intestinal tract and the body is unable to remove it. Hairballs can be problematic and uncomfortable for a cat, so how should one manage them?
Psyllium Plus Cat is a product specially formulated to improve the digestive function of cats. Psyllium comes from the ripe seeds of the plantago, a type of plantain. The seeds contain mucilage, a clear and colourless gel. It is an ideal natural means of cleaning the colon. Psyllium Plus Cat has a high proportion of psyllium in combination with specific herbs, for optimal support. It is good for the transit of substances in the intestine and promotes proper functioning of the intestines. For cats, psyllium can be used daily to prevent hairballs and improve functioning of the digestive system.
You don’t need to be a pet owner to know that there are many health benefits to eating oily fish. They are packed with vitamins and minerals. They are also a rich source of fatty acids, including the renowned omega-3 fatty acids. Cat Fish Oil and Dog Fish Oil contain oil extracted from fish, thus they have the health benefits of oily fish. Fish oils comprise as much as one-third fatty acids. Hence, adding it to your cat’s diet is an efficient way to boost their dietary intake of these popular molecules.
The health benefits of Fish Oil include:
- EPA, an omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory. It helps any condition that causes inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin, and joints—such as arthritis. It will also ease inflammation due to allergies and reduce itchy skin and dandruff. This can also be an effective way to potentially decrease the incidence of hot spots on your pet.
- Promotes a shiny and healthy coat. Fish oils are a natural way to improve the skin health of cats, even reducing shedding.
- DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, is important in brain and eye development in puppies and kittens. Giving fish oil to pregnant or nursing pets can benefit the babies once they're born.
- Slowing the growth of cancer, some studies have shown that fish oil has slowed the growth of cancer.
