Frequently Asked Questions with Dr. Royal

How should I introduce a new supplement to my pet?Do your homework and choose the supplement that’s right for your pet’s needs. Don’t overdo it with too many supplements at once or you can become confused about the results or any unusual reactions. Start with one or two supplements, then add more if they’re well-tolerated.

Why would I want to give my pet a probiotic or digestive enzyme supplement?Dr. Royal typically considers using probiotics and/or digestive enzymes if a pet has had occasional loose stools, burping, noisy intestinal sounds and digestive issues, or has experienced a disruption to their normal gut microflora, which can be caused by dietary changes and other common factors.

My pet’s a picky eater, how can I get him/her to take a supplement?Sweet cream or lightly salted butter both work well as a pill vehicle. Place the pill in between two pats of butter or a dollop of sweet cream and watch it disappear. Other foods that can help with pet compliance include meats, cream cheese, shrimps, sardines, yogurt, liverwurst, and most meat varieties of baby food.

Why would I need a supplement if my pet is eating a healthy, balanced diet?Today’s pet foods do an admirable job of providing balanced nutrition, but certain animals may be lacking dietary nutrients based on their medical condition, age or breed. Feed supplements can help bridge the gap between nutritional basics and help promote more complete nutritional health.

Are human and animal supplements the same?No, dosages and ingredients can be very different for animals. Additionally, some of the natural ingredients routinely used in human supplements can be toxic to animals, even though they have no adverse effects on humans.

Can NOW Pets supplements be given with other supplements and/or medications?It’s always best to ask your veterinarian before using supplements and medications concurrently. Most food-based supplements are safe and can be used with many medications. Ask your holistic veterinarian for advice on combining supplements with medications.

Are pet supplements made for life-long use or should I just use them once in a while?Many supplements are for temporary use, to get through a condition or other health issues, but some supplements are just a great idea for daily health maintenance. Ask your holistic veterinarian for advice.

How can I accurately assess the quality of a pet supplement?The best way to gauge the quality of a pet supplement is to research the manufacturer and ask questions. Any company providing food, supplements or medication for your pet should be able to answer any and all questions you may have. If a company gives evasive answers, or avoids your calls and questions altogether, you may want to reconsider using their products.

How should I give supplements to my pet?Always follow the manufacturer’s suggested usage on the packaging. Many pet supplements are designed to be palatable and can be hand-fed to your pets. If they’re having none of it, try the finicky pet method. Sweet cream or lightly salted butter both work well as a pill vehicle. Place the pill in between two pats of butter or a dollop of sweet cream and watch it disappear. Other foods that can help with pet compliance include meats, cream cheese, shrimps, sardines, yogurt, liverwurst, and most meat varieties of baby food.

How long until I see results from my pet supplements?With some supplements you can see results in as little as a day or two. Others may not exhibit results for a few weeks. Check with your holistic veterinarian or the manufacturer for information on expected results and their approximate timing.

Are pet supplements suitable for both dogs and cats?Some supplements can be taken by both cats and dogs, but most are specifically formulated for one or the other. Check the label when in doubt.

NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products.
