From anxiety issues to urinary tract infections, veterinarians are using natural nutritional supplements — sometimes called “nutraceuticals” — to help support healthy body function in pets and, in some cases, reduce reliance on drugs (pharmaceuticals).

 

At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, our line-up of nutritional supplements supports dog and cat health in these areas: liver, gastrointestinal tract, joints, urinary tract, skin, and emotional health.

Our favorite nutritional supplements for pets include Cranberry PlusDasuquin, Denamarin (not shown), Free Form Snip Tips, Solliquin, and Vetri Mega Probiotic.

Nutritional supplements often are used alongside traditional medications and other supportive treatment. Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian, recommends supplements for his patients: to promote good health, reduce symptoms, and lessen the chance of recurrence of certain medical problems.

Always consult your pet’s veterinarian before starting your pet on a nutritional supplement. Unless directed otherwise, stick to supplements specially formulated for pets (skip the human products).

Nutritional supplements can enhance your pet’s health, but often are not sufficient to treat or cure a particular disease or disorder. Be sure to partner with your pet’s veterinarian to determine if a nutritional supplement can help your dog or cat.
