Is Ascophyllum nodosum suitable for pets with sensitive stomachs?

Whilst Ascophyllum nodosum is usually well tolerated, each animal is different. Ensure that your pet’s gastrointestinal system is at its best before introducing Simply Seaweed. Introduce the product slowly, gradually increasing the dose as toleration is evident.

Probiotics may help with transition – products such as SkinnyDog Kefir, Protexin or lactose free yogurt.

How long until results become noticeable?

Whilst most pet owners see an improvement in breath within a few weeks, results will vary depending on severity and dosage and may take up to 12 weeks to become noticeable.

My pet does not like the taste… any suggestions?

In our experience, dogs are not usually bothered by the product being added to their food. Cats, however, can sometimes be a bit fussy.

Some suggestions are;

  • Reduce the dosage
  • Start by introducing a very small quantity of the product, gradually increasing the amount up to the recommended dosage
  • Hide the Ascophyllum nodosum in a small amount of lactose free yoghurt, chicken stock, gravy, margarine or peanut butter
  • For cats, try mixing the Ascophyllum nodosum with Brewer’s Yeast before adding to the cat’s food
