San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2014 -- Cats and dogs both have nutritional needs that are rarely met in the pet foods commercially available in stores. Though they can survive on this food, it is not designed for them to thrive. In order to protect the delicate balance in their bodies, they require a specific degree of special nutrients. For decades, the people of Nova Scotia have fed their pets dried kelp, which has the unique blend and balance of nutrients required, and Pet Kelp is a company now offering this to a nationwide customer base.
In addition to nutrient rich kelp, the individual formulations have additional ingredients to optimize them for different purposes, including digestive and probiotic formulas, joint & bone and mobility, skin and coat, and overall wellness. These include things like dried blueberries, flax flour, glucosamine and chondroitin.
The formulations are scaled in dosage for any size of cat or dog and a single pack can last up to nine months when mixed with regular dog food. The supplements (http://www.petkelp.com/supplements/) are part of a broad range of products, including Kelpies treats and jerky treats that provide a healthy alternative to pet foods and treats.
A spokesperson for Pet Kelp explained, “We Nova Scotians have a proud heritage of using ocean kelp, which accumulates nutrients from the sea as it filters the water, resulting in over 70 vitamins and minerals being contained in the kelp. By sun-drying it we lock the nutrients in, and then we powder it to make sure it will blend seamlessly with your pet’s normal food. The range of products we offer are designed to keep pets healthy, hardy and happy, and we are confident the new range of supplements is going to be the easiest way to keep dogs healthier for longer.”
