If you’ve never heard of the term nutraceutical you’re probably wondering what it is and how can it benefit your pet. Nutraceutical is a term that can be used to describe supplements that are derived from a food source known for its medicinal benefits. There are many products available for people that are classed as nutraceutical that are used to improve health and well-being and also as an aid to prevent certain illnesses. This makes perfect sense that our cats and dogs can also benefit from their use. Beaphar has launched a new range called NutriSupport which are nutraceuticals that support the well-being of dogs and cats. Supplied in soft jellies that pets love they are available in four types, digestion, senior, active and kidney.
