Dr Shawn’s Favorite Supplements for Pets

  1. Omega 3 Fatty Acids-Fish oil is another important anti-inflammatory agent. It’s great for a variety of problems and to ensure proper fatty acid balance in the body (most pets and people have an improper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.) My favorite product is Ultra EFA from RX Vitamins for Pets.
  2. Cholodin-In my practice, using the supplement Cholodin from MVP Laboratories is the best way to treat pets with cognitive disorder. However, pets 5 years of age and older who take Cholodin often never develop cognitive disorder, or develop later in life. Therefore, I recommend it as a way to delay the onset of this terrible disease for dogs and cats. For pets with arthritis, Cholodin Flex is my favorite product (other favorite products for delaying the onset of arthritis include Vim & Vigor (see #1 above,) Glycoflex (From Vetri-Science,) or Megaflex or Nutriflex (from RX Vitamins for Pets.)
  3. Last but certainly not least, DENTAL DISEASE is very important. It’s the most common disease in people and pets, and there are several easy steps you can take to minimize dental disease in your pets. In addition to Vim & Vigor as part of my preventive dental care protocol, my favorite dental care products are made by Oxyfresh. Their special Triple Head Toothbrush makes it very easy to brush your pet’s teeth. Use the Oral Hygiene Solution in the drinking water daily (What could be easier??? You have to give your pet water each day, so you may as well make that water work to maintain your pet’s health!) Rub the Pet Gel along the pet’s gumline each day.
