digestive supportImagine this: You’re going out of town for a weekend and you drop your dog off at a friend’s. You bring some food along—you really like your pup to have a regular diet because you’ve noticed his demeanor and comfort are affected by what he eats. You leave, knowing that your dog is in good hands.


Your friend has a barbecue. Her friends shove chicken bones in the dog’s bowl. Corn cobs at the dog’s feet. Potato salad under the table.

For many of your customers, conjuring up this scene doesn’t involve imagination; this is reality. Digestive support products are especially important to your patients because, although they may have the very best intentions for their animals’ food choices, your customers aren’t always in control.

On top of that, it’s a good bet that many of your emergency visits involve the digestive tract in one way or another. Insurance companies agree. We all know how curious cats and dogs are, and how oblivious many pet owners and pet owners’ friends can be.
