What Richard says
We and our pets are under constant attack from pollutants in the water we drink, the air we breathe and the soil our food is grown in. In our homes we are susceptible to electromagnetic stress from our electrical appliances, especially from computers and mobile phones. Our pets may not suffer the emotional stresses and strains of daily life that we do, but they are sensitive creatures who are affected by our feelings and emotions. As pets get older, body tissues deteriorate and need replacing, and there are special nutrient needs for young and growing animals, those with immune system weaknesses, during pregnancy and lactation, and in many other areas. Most pets are fed on dried or tinned, highly processed food, and have little in the way of fresh, natural nutrients. For all these reasons, supplements of herbs, minerals and vitamins are often not just advisable, but essential, to achieve and maintain optimum health for your pet.
In the Diet' Dog range of herbal supplements you will find high quality herbs and nutritive supplements that can make a real difference to the health and well being of your pet – for the young and the old, for extra energy or for stiff joints, and from itchy skin on the outside to upset tummies on the inside.
have no hesitation in recommending the Diet' Dog range – these products have been carefully formulated to give best results, haven’t been adulterated by the addition of artificial colourings and other chemicals, are manufactured to a high standard with best quality ingredients, and are presented as palatable granules which can be mixed with food.
