What are types and benefits of health supplements for pets? Dietary health supplements are typically in the form of pills, meant to be consumed orally. These supplements include vitamins, amino acids and other important nutrients. They aim to provide health benefits to the consumer’s body and make sure that their body is getting the right amount of nutrients required.
Most pet owners give their pets supplements for nourishment and growth instead of other medicinal drugs because of the great health benefits that they offer. However, it is best to consult a veterinary first because supplements are not necessary if your pet is already in good health. And if there is a need, your vet will guide you best and prescribe the right kind of supplement needed. For instance, if your pet dog is losing hair, your vet will prescribe fatty acid containing supplements and fish oil. These supplements are meant to help with thick coat formation and they prevent skin allergies as well.
There are several kinds of supplements available for pets. Each is a blend of different ingredients and nutrients.
Multi-vitamins: Sometimes, pets do not get sufficient amount of vitamins from the food they consume. So, multi-vitamins become necessary. But, it is important for you to check which type of vitamin is missing from their diet before giving the supplement. Vitamin A, for example helps develop good vision and eye sight. It is also great for immunity. Vitamin C is a great anti-oxidant and prevents inflammation.
Digestive Enzymes: These are to best for pets that have trouble digesting food properly. If the digestive system and metabolism rate is slow, digestive enzymes help speed up the process. Poor digestion often causes irritability in them and makes them avoid food altogether. These enzyme-containing supplements then come to the rescue.
Probiotics: They are also helpful and effective in this regard. They help cure diarrhea and stomach upset. They help maintain proper gastro intestinal health. This supplement is available in chew and powder form.
Choline: It is a vital nutrient responsible for good memory and muscle control. It is great for a healthy functioning cell membrane and supports proper brain and liver functioning. Choline is often prescribed as a cure for dogs with epilepsy.
Glucosamine: This supplement ensures proper joint and liver care. It provides relief from joint pain, swelling and stiffness. Veterinarians mainly prescribe this supplement as a cure for arthritis and chronic liver problems. It is suitable for older dogs because knee joints tend to become weak as they age. Glucosamine is also given to pets that suffer from chronic inflammation in the urinary bladder.
Keep your pet healthy by feeding them properly and giving them supplements that can address their deficiencies. Just like humans, animals should also exercise regularly. Taking your dog for a walk daily is essential. Moreover, one must talk to their pet’s vet before giving them any kind of supplement. It is important to be 100% sure that you are giving the nutrients in required amounts. We can always assess what type of supplement will suit your pet’s condition best.

Pet products constitute a growing industry. Start-up companies and small business are now hiring contract manufacturers for their pet products and treats. The private label manufacturing services assist in the whole process. Starting from the initial concept of the product to its formulation, designing to packaging and distribution –they cater all.
Before its placement in the store shelf, a pet product goes through many stages. You can get a variety of pet products made as per your requirements. If you make the right choice, it will help ensure a smooth journey.
The first stage is product development. It all begins with a concept. You may already have an idea for your product and know what you need. Once you hire a private label company, all you have to do is to provide them the details with specifications. Then it’s the company’s job to manufacture the product as per your needs. If you have provided a list of ingredients to the contractors, their researchers can suggest if the ingredients will be effective to the product or not?
If you trust a private label manufacturing service with product formulation, the company’s research team takes charge. They look for the best science-based solution for the animals’ health. The researchers ensure to test all possible combinations of ingredients for the product.
The formulator tests all ingredients or raw materials for purity, taste, and quality before adding to the product. Reputed private labels have data systems to track down the origin of the product ingredients. The practice helps to respond quickly in case of an ingredient recall.
Companies can ensure quality standards only if they enforce good manufacturing practices. There are many pet products available in the market. To make your product stand out, manufacturers offer a variety of delivery options. Extruded chews are the most common form of pet products. Others include soft chews, tablets, capsules, powder, liquids, gel an extruded sticks.
Some private labels do not provide services for designing the product. However, one-stop shop service providers help in this stage as well. Two important factors for product branding are its shape and size. Your formula is meeting all the quality standards, but if its packaging is not appealing, it may become a disadvantage.
Third party labels help you to create the best design for the product. Website content and product promotional material are also effective marketing tools. Though the formula is the key factor; a perfect design also plays a part in promoting a product.
An important step is to make sure that the pet product complies with the health and safety standards of the industry. The main body for regulating pet products is the US Food and Drug Association (FDA). FDA, along with the State Department of Agriculture, works together for the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFFCO).
AAFCO develops the regulation laws for labeling, selling, and manufacturing of commercial pet feeds. It also provides a list of verified ingredients for manufacturing pet feeds.
All pet products have to comply with certain labeling requirements –such as weight, or volume. AAFFCO puts a restriction to the claims about the product. No label can ever contain false claims about the effectiveness of the product.
