NEW from Kauffman's Animal Health


FORTITUDE® CANINE

FORTITUDE CANINE Supplements with DHA GOLD® Provide Natural Whole Foods to Assure Buoyant Health and Longevity for your Canine Best Friend.

Kauffman's Animal Health is proud to introduce two new canine whole food supplements both featuring DHA GOLD, a high quality vegetarian source of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).  According to veterinary nutritionist Edward Moser, VMD, DACVN: " the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA, has important metabolic consequences in nervous and brain tissue and in the modulation of inflammatory and immune response.  This conditionally essential fatty acid may not be present in your dog's diet."

FORTITUDE CANINE products have no chemical preservatives, no wheat or soy derivatives and have proven palatability and results. "We had excellent results in our palatability studies," said Melissa Giordano, Animal Health Specialist for Kauffman's, "but the proof for me is how well my own dog has done on the FORTITUDE CANINE JOINTsupplement.  My 10 year old St. Bernard loves the taste.  He gets excited about eating his meals and is showing a marked improvement in mobility; he's even playing with our other dog, an energetic two year-old."

Whole Foods - Nutrition SimplifiedFORTITUDE® CANINE with Algal DHA

A Natural Whole Food Supplement for Dogs including Algal Oil DHA

FORTITUDE CANINE is a palatable, natural whole food supplement for dogs, supplying a blend of omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA from DHA GOLD® and ALA from flaxseed; a minimally processed antioxidant-rich blend of greens, sprouts, fruit and vegetables; and a pre-biotic / live probiotic blend for digestive health.  Feeding a dog a natural whole food supplement introduces numerous health promoting, non-synthetic substances into the gastrointestinal tract that work together for buoyant physical and mental health and longevity. According to the National Research Council Committee on Animal Nutrition 2006, functional fats like DHA and ALA are essential especially for certain life stages and conditions; only small amounts of them are required but they may not be present in your dogs current diet.

This supplement is recommended for:

  • Growing pups, reproducing and aging dogs, as well as for desired improvements in skin health, coat sheen and appearance.

Features:

  • Whole Ground Flaxseed - supplies the functional Omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA); as well as natural protein and dietary fiber.

  • DHA GOLD® (Algal Oil) - is a vegetarian source of the Omega-3 conditionally essential fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).  No fish or fish oil are used.  Algal oil high in DHA is naturally synthesized by the algae, Crypthecodinium cohnii.  It is grown under controlled, sanitary manufacturing conditions, producing a clean, safe algal oil free of ocean contaminants.

  • Natural Whole Food Blend - Green blend: alfalfa, barley grass sprout, parsley; Fruit and vegetable blend: dehydrated blueberries and carrots.

  • Live Direct-Fed Microbial Blend (Probiotics) - lactic acid-producing bacteria: Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria; with yeast culture and chicory root (source of the FOS-inulin).

  • Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols (vitamin E)

  • No Animal or Fish Products. Vegetarian. No wheat or soy.

  • Natural flavoring.

Benefits:

  • The National Research Council publication Nutrient Requirements of Dogs and Cats, published in 2006 reported ALA (18:3 n-3) a conditionally essential fatty acid. ALA may not be present in your dog's diet.  ALA helps promote healthy skin and coat and is involved in the modulation of the inflammatory and immune response of the dog.

  • The Omega-3 fatty acid DHA (22:6 n-3) plays a major role in brain and retinal development.  It also modulates the inflammatory response of skin and joints; and the immune systems.  DHA may not be present in your dog's diet.

  • Antioxidant compounds, chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, carotenoids, flavonoids and natural dietary fibers.

  • Living lactic acid-producing bacteria Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium (probiotics) and their favorite substrate (the fructooligosaccharide prebiotic - inulin; supplied by chicory root) promote a balanced microflora for healthy digestion and immune function.

  • No chemical preservatives.

  • No fish products which can be a source of ocean contaminants.

  • No animal, wheat or soy products which are common causes of adverse food reactions in dogs.

  • Proven palatability (Summit Ridge Farms, 2009).

Whole Foods - Nutrition SimplifiedFORTITUDE® CANINE JOINT with Algal DHA

A Natural Algal Oil DHA and Flaxseed ALA Supplement for Dogs with Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate and Antioxidant Vitamins.

FORTITUDE CANINE JOINT is designed to provide regenerative nutritional support to dogs affected with lameness due to osteoarthritis and slow, ongoing cartilage loss.  It includes a similar blend of the conditionally essential omega-3 fatty acids (DHA from DHA GOLD® and ALA from flaxseed) as FORTITUDE CANINE to modulate inflammatory and immune response.  In addition, natural glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate from shrimp shells and chicken cartilage, respectively are included for nutrition and protection of joint cartilage and provision of relief of clinical signs of osteoarthritis.  Antioxidant vitamins E and C are included to decrease the damage done to the joint environment by free radicals.  This blend provides a positive synergistic effect on joint structure and function. Feeding an adult dog this natural supplement will supply the conditionally essential Omega-3 fatty acids DHA (algal vegetarian source) and ALA (from flaxseed) to the diet; add benefit with glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and the antioxidant vitamins E and C.

This Supplement is recommended for:

  • Adult dogs showing signs of lameness due to osteoarthritis and slow, ongoing cartilage loss.

Features:

  • Whole Ground Flaxseed - supplies the functional Omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA); as well as natural protein and dietary fiber.

  • DHA GOLD® (Algal Oil) - is a vegetarian source of the Omega-3 conditionally essential fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).  No fish or fish oil are used.  Algal oil high in DHA is naturally synthesized by the algae, Crypthecodinium cohnii.  It is grown under controlled, sanitary manufacturing conditions, producing a clean, safe algal oil free of ocean contaminants.

  • DHA is a fatty acid involved in modulating inflammation in the joints and skin; it also is a structural component of neural tissue.  DHA inhibits the production of COX-2 enzymes and competes with arachidonic acid incorporation into cell membranes.

  • Synergistic positive effect on joint nutrition, structure and function

  • Protect the joint structures from the cell damaging effects of free radicals.

  • No chemical preservatives.

  • No animal, wheat or soy products which are common causes of adverse food reactions in dogs.
