You are what you eat. You’ve heard that before, right? Turns out, the same is true for our canine companions. Research continues to accumulate about the importance of giving our pets really good nutrition that gives them the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients they need to live long, healthy lives. Now many pet parents are looking beyond healthier foods and adding nutritional supplements to their pet’s diets.
Here at VetRxDirect, we’re seeing a steady rise in orders for nutritional supplements that help improve everything from joint and bone health to allergies and skin conditions in dogs and cats.
Nutritional supplements to support eye health – like Ocu-GLO Rx are really gaining popularity too. Our dogs can’t tell us when their eyesight gets worse. But veterinary ophthalmologists know that over time, just like in humans, a dog’s ocular health can deteriorate. And, as they age, many dogs get degenerative eye diseases – like glaucoma and cataracts – that can certainly reduce their quality of life.
The big culprit in so many of these diseases is oxidation. It’s a natural process that causes cellular damage over time. Think of an apple that shrivels up and gets brown if it’s left out on the counter — that’s oxidation.
Many of the dietary supplements, including Ocu-GLO feature antioxidants, substances that help prevent disease by blocking the damage caused by oxidation. Ocu-GLO, which was developed by veterinary ophthalmologists, contains a unique blend of 12 powerful antioxidants that provide the nutritional support needed for good eye health in your dog. It’s packed with some powerhouse antioxidants including vitamins, Lutein, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
