Will My Dog Benefit from Supplements?

Dogs who have or are at risk for certain health problems can benefit from supplements. Veterinarians commonly recommend nutritional supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin as a part of treatment plans for osteoarthritis.

“Dogs with joint pain and arthritis, allergies or other skin problems, flaky or dry skin, chronic diarrhoea” can benefit, explains Dr. Sara Ochoa, a small animal and exotic veterinarian in Texas. Any dog who suffers from a chronic condition, such as joint pain, skin problems, or digestive problems could benefit from a supplement.

Supplements are great for many different problems. These are some of the most common symptoms that would make vets recommend supplementing your dog’s diet:

Joint Pain

For dogs with any joint or ligament injury, certain supplements can help. Glucosamine and Chondroitin will help with inflammation of the joints.

TRM’s Stride Plus is a complementary feed supplement for the nutritional maintenance of healthy cartilage and joints in dogs.

It combines the highest quality Glucosamine HCL, Chondroitin Sulphate, Hyaluronic Acid and MSM in a convenient and palatable liquid, which is easily dispensed on the dogs feed and can improve mobility and pain management.

Skin & Coat Problems

Omega 3s and EFA are great for skin problems or flaky skin. Omega 3s are a common fatty acid supplement that’s becoming very popular to use in dogs.

TRM Pet’s CANIGLO is rich in the Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6. These cannot be made by the body and must be provided in the diet.

An adequate intake of Essential Fatty Acids will help maintain a healthy, soft shiny coat and good skin condition. Your dog will feel good inside, and look great outside. This supplement has been proven to help with allergies, skin disease, heart and kidney disease, lymphoma, and much more and is a great supplement to add to your pet’s diet.

Digestive Issues

Probiotics are good bacteria that are naturally found in your pets’ intestinal tract and can be ingested as a paste, powder, or in a capsule. These can be put on your dog’s food to help restore the natural bacteria in your dog’s gut.

TRM Pet’s Canigest Combi contains two EU approved Probiotic strains, combined with Prebiotics, Pectin, Kaolin and Glutamine Peptides. E. Faecium stabilises the internal gut flora of dogs and cats and L. acidophilus has potential to reduce the moisture of stools from dogs and cats receiving the additive.


The Benefits of the Forager Slow Feeder

Horses were designed to spend much of their day grazing on forage and that lifestyle has many health and behaviour benefits. The Forager Slow Feeder approximates Mother Nature’s methods within modern horse management routines.

4 Key Benefits of the

Haygain Forager Benefits:

  • Regulates the pace at which your horse eats
  • Reduce forage waste by keeping hay contained
  • Aids in prevention of gastric ulcers, obesity, and laminitis
  • Prevents Muscle tension in the back and neck







The Haygain Forager Slow Feeder Design Features 

  1. Digestive Health
  • The Forager comes with 2 interchangeable regulator grids to best suit your horse’s needs and preferences.
  • EasyOn regulator grid clicks in securely for easy filling.
  • Unique external steel ring keeps grid level as it lowers and prevents the horse from tipping it as they eat.
  • Strong top ring has four rubber fixings for structural stability.
  • For extra stability, the Forager base can be filled with sand and/or the cylinder can be secured to the wall.
  • Fully collapsible for easy cleaning and transport. Designed for durability and safety, the cylinder panels will break apart under extreme pressure.
  1.  Physical & Psychological Health
  • The Forager allows horses to eat with their head in a lowered position. This facilitates natural drainage of respiratory particles.
  • Eating with a natural, head-lowered position maintains a natural posture for the horse’s head, neck and jaw. Conversely, eating from a wall-hung hay net requires an unnatural neck-spine alignment. This can be exacerbated as the horse yanks hay from the net.
  • Longer mealtimes make for happier horses that are less prone to boredom behaviours including cribbing, pawing and stall walking.
  1. Clean Forage & Reduced Waste
  • The Forager contains hay in a durable, ventilated cylinder that keeps it clean and prevents the waste of hay being trampled into bedding and manure.
  • Ideal for keeping hygienic Haygain Steamed Hay clean and appetising!
  1. Weight Management
  • Extended mealtimes are especially beneficial for horses that require restricted diets. Intermittent feeding that is common in modern horse management can trigger fat storing responses that can lead to obesity.
  • The Forager’s external ring lowers as the horse consumes its meal. This makes it easy to monitor consumption, which is part of managing our horse’s weight.
