1) What ingredients are best to help boost the immunity of pets and why?
Anti-oxidants included in brightly colored fruits and vegetable, called carotenoids, benefit vision, skin, bones, heart and immune system. As well prebiotics and probiotic support the immune system, specifically the large intestine, as a large part of the immune system resides here.
2) Dry patches and lack lustre fur are common in the winter- what ingredients can help with this?
Cooler weather usually brings dry air. Drier air can also dry out a pet’s coat and skin. A dog or cat food with omega oils, will help support a healthy coat and skin.
3) For dogs with allergies what are the recommended ingredients that might help with sensitive digestion and food intolerance issues?
Allergies and intolerances are based on exposure to a particular protein source. Typically they are ingredients that are traditionally used in pet food. Often times determining what the offending agent is can be a bit tricky, however using an novel single protein source, such as duck, salmon or turkey, reducing your carbohydrates to one or two novels sources, and limiting the remaining ingredients, can work quite well. For your canine friend, we recommend our GO! SENSITIVITY + SHINE Recipe.
