Dr. Goodpet - Golden Age Formula - 8 oz. (227 g)
Dr. Goodpet Golden Age Formula provides vitamins and minerals for senior dogs and cats. The way to ensure that your aging cats and dogs get all the vitamins and minerals they need is to fortify their diet with Golden Age Formula, a human-quality powder supplement from Dr. Goodpet. Golden Age provides senior dogs and cats with essential nutritional support to keep them vital and healthy. It helps maintain healthy skin, coat, and bones, and provides nutritional support for the immune system. It also helps correct nutritional deficiencies in the diet.
Golden Age features high levels of antioxidant vitamins C and E, well known for their major protective properties. It contains the same high-quality vitamins and minerals used in human products. The formula is further fortified with some 70 trace minerals for better digestion, growth, strong bones, teeth, claws, skin and hair coat.
Finally, the product is flavored with chicken meal, a taste animals love, and which serves as an additional source of protein. You won't find potent combinations of ingredients like this in other pet supplements!
What it doesn't contain is also important to you. There is NO yeast, wheat, corn, salt, sugar, or other harmful additives in Golden Age. Many animals are sensitive to these ingredients, used widely in pet food and supplements, and develop allergic reactions such as scratching, skin problems, and diarrhea.
Vitamin & Trace Mineral Supplements
Supplements boost the health of animals and help make up for nutritional deficiencies in the diet. We offer age-specific formulas in powder form: Maximum Protection for adult animals; Optimum Growth for pups, kittens and pregnant females; and Golden Age for older animals. Treatamin, our multi-vitamin in tablet form, can be used either as a general daily supplement or a tasty reward.
Can you faithfully pin your hopes for your animal's health on products like this?
Hopefully, you buy your animal a premium quality food. Food that has no preservatives and artificial colors. Hopefully you share some nutritious extras with your pet -- things like carrots, broccoli, whole grain rice, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.
Nutritionally-oriented veterinarians agree that if you want to improve your pet's health you need to provide better than adequate nutrition. That translates to more than what is available in those bags of pet food. You need to fortify your animal's diet with extra vitamins and minerals.
That will help strengthen your pet internally so it can fight off the effects of contaminants and stress. Supplementation may also help your pet compensate for possible genetic defects that are becoming increasingly common, particularly among pure breed dogs and cats.
The effects of inadequate nutrition, pollution and genetic defects take their toll on our pet population. That is why dogs and cats become sick and die before their time. There are estimates that one-third of our pets have allergic symptoms. The veterinary costs of dealing with genetic defects are estimated at $1 billion a year!
We can do something to help our pets. Medical research is continually showing that supplementation helps people. Animal breeders supplement their animals with vitamin and mineral supplements. They will tell you that pet food is not enough to protect animals or enable them to achieve optimal health. Well-meaning pet owners who supplement their animals' diets may, in fact, be helping them very little, and possibly causing problems. This is because many pet supplements contain low-quality vitamins and potentially allergenic ingredients such as brewer's yeast and artificial flavors and dyes.
Dr. Goodpet Laboratories has created unique vitamin and mineral formulas for different stages of your pet's life. These formulas boost resistance to flea and other allergies and help correct imbalances and nutrient deficiencies in the diet. Unlike other pet supplements, they contain the same high-quality vitamins and trace minerals that are used in human products.
They contain NO yeast, beef, milk, wheat or harmful additives. Many animals are sensitive to these ingredients, used widely in food and supplements. Many can develop allergic reactions to these ingredients, such as scratching, skin problems, and diarrhea.
Dr. Goodpet's formulas are fortified with some 70 different trace minerals. Minerals are vital to digestion, growth, repair of tissues, to strong bones, teeth, claws, skin and hair coat. Normally you will find only major minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium in supplements, but not trace minerals. Trace mineral compounds contain such essential minerals but also rare-earth elements that are present in "trace" or minute amounts. In many cases, their need in sustaining mammalian life has not yet been defined. According to Natural Pet Magazine, "it has been found that supplementing pets' diets with a trace mineral combination can show tremendous improvements in coat and body weight maintenance as well as controlling food allergies, flea allergy dermatitis, and endocrine-immune imbalances."
Dr. Goodpet supplements are PACKED with trace minerals. They also feature high levels of zinc and vitamins C and E, well-known for their many beneficial properties. Most pet supplements do not contain vitamin C. The reason: dogs and cats, as do most mammals, produce their own vitamin C internally. However, dogs and cats are minimal producers compared to other animals. Vitamin C is a marvelous substance that performs many tasks in the body. It is a natural pain reliever and detoxifier. It is a major contributor to immune function. And it plays a major role in the building of collagen, the connective tissue that literally holds the body together.
For years, holistic veterinarians have found that when you supplement pets with vitamin C they are healthier, and better able to withstand the stress and pollution in their lives. Dr. Wendell Belfield, a San Jose veterinarian, pioneered the use of vitamin C for pets. His clinical research has shown how vitamin C supplementation helps for problems ranging from common viral illnesses to disc disorders. He has reported using vitamin C to prevent hip dysplasia, a crippling condition in many dogs."
The Dr. Goodpet Story
There's a real health epidemic affecting our pets. Too many dogs and cats get sick and die before their time. That's what health writer Martin Zucker learned from veterinarians and breeders while researching five different books on pet health.
In 1984 Zucker teamed up with Louis Gottlieb, a businessman with many years of experience in the pet industry, to create Dr. Goodpet Laboratories, a part of their family-owned and operated company Very Healthy Enterprises, Inc.. Starting with a single product in 1984, the company has grown steadily and now sells over 30 products, with new items being added all the time to thousands of customers nationwide, including veterinarians, breeders, groomers, trainers, pet owners and leading pet and health food chains.
Dr. Goodpet's homeopathic remedies have the distinction of being the first in the U.S. made exclusively for pets. Based on advanced European combinations used for many years, these remedies help relieve such problems as itching, flea-bite allergies, scratching, skin conditions, motion sickness, hyperactivity, diarrhea, foul breath, ear infections, pain and stiffness from arthritis, and minor eye irritations.
Dr. Goodpet vitamin and trace mineral supplements feature unique age-specific vitamin and trace mineral formulas for young, adult and senior animals, and for pregnant and lactating females. These products help boost resistance against illness and allergies, develop healthier skin, and compensate for nutritional deficiencies in less-than-perfect commercial pet food.
