All THE EXTRAS

IN THE RAW we believe that adding a few simple supplements will round out the diet. There are a host of products on the market, but be wary of trying too many varieties at once. You will bombard your pets system! Too much is just as bad as too little.

*Quality Vitamin & Mineral supplement: This can be very simply found in an equal blend of kelp & alfalfa. Kelp and alfalfa provide all of the necessary fat and water-soluble vitamins and minerals. It is a powerful combination that contains a multitude of health benefits.

*Calcium: If you have a pet whose digestive system cannot tolerate bones or the bulk of your pet's meal consists of red meats then you will have to provide a good quality calcium supplement regularly.

*Essential Fatty Acid Oils: *Dogs: Combination of plant & fish based oils such as cold pressed borage, flax, grape seed, hemp, cod or salmon. *Cats: Animal and fish based oils ONLY! Recent studies suggest that cats do not assimilate plant-based oils very well. "EFA'S" are used to nourish and support the hair, heart, joints and skin.

Start simply and monitor how your pet looks and performs. You can adjust your supplements at that level, which would better test the performance of the additive on your pet. Rotate your supplement brands for maximum nutritional benefit. Consult your animal health care practitioner, veterinarian or nutritional consultant for advice in these areas.
