How Kelp Can Incredibly Improve Your Dogs Health
Kelp has been used for years as a healthy supplement for both people and animals. Rich in iodine, healthy vitamins & minerals, high in protein & low in fat, Kelp has a number of benefits when it comes to keeping your four legged adventure buddy in optimal health.
How Can Kelp Support My Dog's Health?
Kelp is made up of about 25% protein and contains 21 amino acids that are easily digestible, making it one of the most efficient ways to increase your pets protein intake. Proper protein intake is critical for muscle repair and tissue development after strenuous physical exercise. Your dog works all day for you, make sure you are giving them supplements that work for them!
Iodine is another key element of kelp that’s vital to effective glandular function. The thyroid, pituitary, and especially the adrenal glands require iodine for necessary regulation. Good gland health is essential to metabolizing food efficiently and correctly, as well as maintaining proper hormone levels.
Improving your pet’s metabolism can lead to increased energy for your pet and even make it easier for your pet to maintain a healthy weight. It can be difficult to make sure your pet gets the correct amount of iodine, but kelp is a very dense source. Kelp has been used for years to treat thyroid problems or iodine deficiencies in people, and our sea kelp supplement for dogs can provide similar benefits to your pet.
Kelp is loaded with vitamins A, B12, C, and E, along with key trace minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, and boron to keep your pet's immune system like that of an Alpha. Many people claim their dogs or cats have improved blood and heart health, reduced effects of aging, more flexibility, and an overall improved immune system.
Additionally, Kelp naturally contains fatty acids to help keep your furry best friend's coat looking shiny and strong while reducing flakey skin and itching cause from dryness or lack of omegas in their existing diet.
What To Look For in a Kelp Supplement
One of the most important factors to consider when looking for any dog supplement is where the ingredients are sourced. Back 40 Dogs Kelp Supplement is organic and ocean-grown off the cold coastal waters of Maine. With a single source of kelp, we are better able to ensure the quality and purity of our product. All of our kelp is grown using completely natural methods to make sure that your pet gets all the benefits of kelp without harmful side effects from chemicals or other contaminants. After harvesting, the kelp is quickly dried at a low temperature to lock in nutrients. As little as half of a teaspoon daily can give your pet a host of vital nutrients.
How Do I Implement Kelp Into My Pet's Diet?
The easiest way to make sure that your pet can experience the benefits of Back 40 Dogs Kelp Supplement is by sprinkling or mixing it into their existing food source. Pets smaller than 30 pounds need no more than 1/4 teaspoon, while dogs over 100 pounds can have as much as 2 teaspoons. It’s important to provide appropriate serving sizes as too much kelp in a pet’s diet can lead to a runny nose, upset stomach, lethargy, and watery eyes. However, appropriate amounts of kelp can provide numerous benefits, and it’s simple to incorporate into your pet’s diet with no changes to their routine.
