Healthy Drinks During Cooler Weather

Keeping pets healthy during winter months is more important than ever. Autumn and winter weather see a sharp rise in the incidence of common illnesses in both dogs and cats.

Dogs are notorious for developing gastroenteritis. Who hasn’t seen their dog eat grass and then vomit? Cases of gastroenteritis start increasing in late summer and hit their highest rate in December, potentially due to overeating at Christmas!

DoggyRade is an isotonic drink that supports good intestinal health in dogs. It contains natural prebiotics to support good digestion. DoggyRade also supports good fluid intake, which is especially important to maintain good digestion. DoggyRade steps in where water falls short, as water alone does not contain the prebiotics, minerals or micronutrients that help dogs be their best. Even the fussiest of dogs love the chicken taste! In tests comparing fluid intake versus water, dogs drank four times more DoggyRade than water!

For dogs that are ill, there is also DoggyRade Pro, an advanced version of DoggyRade, which supports dogs with intestinal disorders such as acute diarrhea, gastroenteritis, pancreatitis and other illnesses. DoggyRade Pro is fortified with double doses of prebiotics as well as key amino acids to help the intestine recover quickly.

Unlike most dogs, cats are fussy drinkers and can sometimes be reluctant to drink plain water. The onset of autumn weather in September is associated with a sharp increase in the incidence of urinary problems in cats, which continues through winter. December and January also see a large uptick in urinary cases.

KittyRade, an award-winning isotonic drink at the Pet Innovation Awards, encourages reliable hydration in cats. KittyRade’s aromatic chicken smell and delicious taste entices cats to drink. In KittyRade’s latest trials testing fluid intake in cats, cats drank nine times more KittyRade than water.

KittyRade also contains natural prebiotics to help support intestinal health, improve digestion and nutrient absorption. Key amino acids included in KittyRade are glutamic acid, beneficial for intestinal function, and taurine, an essential amino acid for cats, which promotes eye and heart health.

The new pet product range also includes a tasty gravy topper for pet food – both dogs and cats. Many gravy toppers are high calorie and fat based, but YummyRade is extremely low in calories and fat. It’s a great flavour booster that encourages both dogs & cats to eat their food. This can be really helpful, especially if your pets are on bland diets, or fussy eaters. You can use it to make your pet’s food tastier, without worrying about weight gain or creating digestive issues. YummyRade also contains natural prebiotics to support gut health.

All of the products are produced and manufactured in Ireland as ready-to-drink, in a resealable pouch. No mixing or measuring is required!  All products in the range contain natural fibre prebiotics. They are also low fat, low calorie, gluten and grain free, hypoallergenic, non-GMO and low in phosphates. All products are formulated by veterinarians, designed to increase fluid intake and improve gut health in both dogs and cats.
