Supplements of your new puppy and kitten.

The excitement of a new puppy or kitten can be made all the more joyful when they are made comfortable and well taken care of. When a new pup or kitten is ready to leave the litter, usually at around 8 weeks, it’s important that certain needs be met that will help them bond with their new family.
Just like a newborn child, puppies and kittens need food, water, a warm place to sleep, plus lots of love. Commercial and raw food diets can leave big gaps in their nutrition. A quality nutrient supplement will provide essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes crucial for developing pets. The first two years of a puppy and kitten's life are critical for building a strong immune system, bones and organs. 
NuVet Plus® is a scientifically formulated nutritional supplement that helps to ensure the proper development of young dogs and cats in several crucial ways.
1. Boosts the Immune System.Puppies and kittens need a healthy immune system, which is responsible for defense against environmental toxins, by-products and unwanted pathogens. NuVet Plus® contains Blue Green Algae which is a very rich chlorophyll source and has been shown to enhance the health of the entire body, strengthen the immune system and promote intestinal regularity.
2. Strengthens the Cardiovascular system. 
A young canine or feline needs a strong heart to power all that energy. NuVet Plus® contains Evening Primrose Oil, which is high in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that promotes cardiovascular health. 
3. Fortifies Bone Structure. Puppies and kittens, like children, require strong bones to support their active lifestyle. A new pup or kitten that can stand, jump and run must depend on their nutrition to give them a healthy skeletal structure. NuVet Plus® uses Oyster Shell which has the proper ratio of quality Calcium and Phosphorus for optimum absorption. Along with Magnesium, these are the vital elements for the structural framework of bones.
4. Promotes a healthy Nervous System. 
NuVet Labs® knows a kitten and a puppy’s developing nervous system needs help to stay healthy which is why we make sure to include Vitamin B3 (Niacin) as part of our formula. B Vitamins are essential, and B3 promotes growth and proper functioning of their growing nerve network.
5. Supports healthy Glands and Organs
Growing pets need real nutritional sources and one of the best comes from 100% Chicken Liver found in NuVet Plus. Paddle dried to maintain full potency of its Omega Fatty Acids, Vitamins A, C and B Complex, NuVet Plus® provides essential nutrients to fuel red blood cells and make your pup’s or kitten's internal organs strong. 

NuVet Plus is the best nutritional supplement for young canines; perfectly balanced to provide the most effective fundamental and essential ingredients that can help defend your new puppy from toxins and nutritional deficiencies.
