Canine Geriatric Basics Details

An older dog has increased requirements for specific nutrients that usually can’t be provided even by a balanced diet. Canine Geriatric Basics is fortified with several amino acids that support the health of an older dog. This ThorneVET formula also contains flavonoids, CoQ10, and other potent antioxidants to slow oxidative damage in the aging canine body.

The canine aging process can also adversely affect the dog’s brain, resulting in decreased production of neurotransmitters, decreased synaptic density, and degeneration of neuronal membrane integrity. To support brain health, Canine Geriatric Basics enhances neurotransmitter production and positively affects neuronal membranes.

A botanical ingredient, bilberry, has been added for its beneficial effects on canine vision. And the two adrenal adaptogenic botanicals, Eleutherococcus and ashwagandha, have been added to help modulate the detrimental physical and mental effects of stress. An aging dog can have a variety of health problems specific to the individual dog, for which such ThorneVET products as Hepagen, Arthroplex, Gastriplex, and Bio-Cardio may be indicated. In most cases, Canine Geriatric Basics can be combined with these products for maximum beneficial effect.

    This supplement has helped my 13 yr old Bichon who suffers from arthritis. He’s able to run on the beach without pain or limping.. He also has no stiffness or soreness the following day. This has really helped to improve his mobility, pain and inflammation. His alertness has also come back. He’s back to his old self. This is an excellent product. I also like the fact that it has eye health benefits.

    My elderly dog is feeling amazing since he started Canine Geriatric Basics!! He is running, moving more easily, engaging with our family more and even growing new hair. Wow! Thank you for all you do to naturally support our fur babies. Also, I shared this product with a dear friend who has a 12 year old dog, and she wrote to me letting me know her dog is feeling better. Sending gratitude and love.
