Digestive Support for Dogs and Cats
FOS or fructooligosaccharides, and MOS or mannanoligosaccharides are natural occurring carbohydrates. FOS provide nutrients for beneficial bacteria (“prebiotic” effect). Research has shown that dogs supplemented with FOS had decreased harmful intestinal bacteria. Controlling harmful bacteria can help reduce odorous components in feces, diarrhea, & other digestive disturbances. MOS enhances microbial populations and modulates systemic immune function. BREWER’S YEAST is an excellent source of B vitamins.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS (from flax and fish) modulate inflammatory processes and are effective in helping alleviate skin allergies and in dogs and cats. Gleam contains both flax derived alpha linolenic acid as well as fish derived docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and ecosapentaenoic acid (EPA).
GAMMA LINOLENIC ACID (from evening primrose oil) is also very helpful, especially in combination with omega-3 fatty acids, for skin problems in pets.
