Latest Dog Supplement News

Latest dog supplement news

Dog owners are starting to see the benefits of nutritional supplements in their pets more and more everyday.

Pre, probiotics, and postbiotics are a fantastic way to balance and support the gut microbiome; leading to healthier, happier pets that have fulfilling lives.

Postbiotics are found to be more stable throughout the various manufacturing processes that are used to create them, and therefore are gaining popularity for their consistent effectiveness [1].

Increasing the bioavailability of ingredients (how easily the body can absorb the nutrients) is key to creating a more effective nutritional supplement.

Trace minerals are essential elements for canine health, though they can be tricky as they’re often reactive with other ingredients.

Chelation is the process by which a mineral is bound to another substance, making it more readily absorbed by the body and occurs naturally in plants.

Mimicking this process is a useful tool in supplement formulation; allowing trace minerals to remain viable and deliver optimum benefits to dogs [2].

Latest ProDog supplement news

At ProDog Raw, we keep on top of the latest nutritional research and are continually planning new formulations and ways to improve our existing products.

Colostrum news

Our latest colostrum supplement has been very well received, with many benefits reported by those customers that have added it to their dog’s dietary regime.

Thanks to its abundance of growth factors and other immune-boosting elements, bovine colostrum is helpful to maintaining optimal health [3].

Colostrum is particularly supportive to dogs with gut health issues, allergies and other conditions that stem from poor immune function.

Meanwhile research supports the health benefits of adding colostrum supplements to the human diet, and the same can be said for our dogs.

ProDog’s range of nutritional supplements provide enrichment to any dog’s diet.

Our all-natural supplements meet the health and dietary needs of all types of dogs; whether they’re in need of support for specific ailments or you simply want to ensure they’re getting the most out of their diet.

Our supplements are always created with premium quality, species-appropriate ingredients that are derived from whole food sources.

We never use fillers or bulking agents, so you can rest assured that your dog is getting the very best nutritional support for their unique needs.

New product development

Alison Frost, Head of Product Development at ProDog Raw has lots of exciting new plans

“We’re developing a natural parasite repellent, which is currently in its trial stages. This will be a safe, all-natural alternative to chemical parasite treatments, which we’re really excited about! “

Alison Frost, Head of Product Development

Alison goes on to say:

We’re also seeing lots of exciting developments into the connection between the gut, the immune system, and brain.

New findings are continually being published which highlight the crucial role the microbiome plays in all aspects of health, including longevity.

As we all want our dogs to live longer and healthier lives, this is an area we are always looking into for new ideas to develop more nutritional solutions for our canine customers
