Let's Talk Dietary Supplements for Our Pets! #NOWPetsSweeps

~This post is sponsored by NOW®Pets and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™.  I am being compensated to help create awareness about NOW Pet Supplements but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers.  NOW® is not responsible for the content of this article.~

NOW® Foods, NOW® Pets parent company has been in business for more than 45 years and is one of the natural product industry's oldest and most respected manufacturers of supplements, natural foods, sports nutrition and personal care products.  Due to their expertise in natural products and ingredients and their access to high quality, natural raw materials, NOW is a natural fit for premium pet nutrition.

The NOW® Pets line of quality pet supplements was created to support and maintain pet health and well-being.  Developed under the guidance of Dr. Barbara Royal, DVM, CVA, a renowned veterinarian and pioneering expert in holistic animal care.  NOW® Pets offers products which are specifically tailored to address the most common pet health concerns.

NOW® Pets products are intended to support all aspects of your pets' health.  NOW® Pets products support immune system health, joint structure and function, cardiovascular health, healthy moods, and a conditioned, quality coat.  Ingredient combinations are based on recommendations from Dr. Royal and are also supported by the latest findings in clinical research.  The supplements are certified by the National Animal Supplement Council - NASC Certified.

There are 8 dietary supplements in the NOW®Pets natural pet supplement line for dogs and cats.

1. NOW®Pets Weight Management - Designed to support proper weight and a healthy appetite.  This supplement is recommended for overweight dogs and contains natural botanicals and carnitine (which is a science-backed ingredient) that helps with weight management.

2. NOW®Pets Immune Support is formulated to assist in supporting your pet's immune system and innate response to pathogens, as well as helping to enhance liver and kidney functions.

3. NOW® Pets Joint Support is formulated to assist in alleviating joint discomfort associated with routine activity levels.

4. NOW®Pets Omega 3 Support is formulated to provide Omega-3 fatty acids that dogs and cats need to help in supporting joint health, brain function, and normal immune response to seasonal challenges.

5. NOW® Pets Pet Relaxant is formulated to promote contentment and relaxation during changes that may occur in your pet's daily routine including separation anxiety, travel, motion sickness, or just plain old tension!

6. NOW® Pets Urinary Support is formulated to help maintain normal urinary pH, which may help to reduce occasional urinary crystal formation.  (This, in particular, is something I worry about constantly...very popular issue in Bichon Frises).  It also help maintain normal urinary tract function and perhaps assists in supporting normal kidney detoxification processes.

7. NOW® Pets L-Lysine Pure Powder helps to support a cat's healthy immune system, normal respiratory health, and also assists in maintaining ocular health.

8. NOW® Pets G.I. Support helps in reducing occasional loose stools due to boarding, transport, and even dietary changes to your pet's daily routine and occasional gastric distress.

I have been using the NOW® Pets Joint Support supplement for Chloe and LadyBug for a couple of weeks now.  It seems to me that their weak muscles (that were preventing them from running and climbing stairs) have gotten a bit stronger...they do not seem to have the same level of anxiety.  I am very pleased with this result!

We decided to take the RV for a test drive since it just returned from the shop.  Chloe LOVES the RV and will do anything to go for a ride in it.  The opposite is true for LadyBug and she puts up quite a fuss.  This is relatively new as she used to be quite good.  Actually, it takes a couple of days for them both to get used to trips...We make frequent bathroom breaks along the way!  I tried the NOW® Pets Pet Relaxant and they both seemed quite good on the test I am hoping that we will see continued improvement!

thanks for a super review... we will look if we can find something for Easy... he turns 7 this year and we maybe should support his joints that way...
