Stop Dog & Cat Scooting from Itching and Irritation with our Anal Gland Relief
Historically, animal anal glands produced a scent that was expressed in the animals’ feces for marking territory. Animals that lived in the wild acquired fiber and essential bacteria to maintain a healthy gut. This contributed to “normal’ bowel habits and minimized anal gland issues when living in the wild. Today, most pet dogs and cats receive processed and/or artificially preserved foods. While convenient, some foods may contain less natural fiber and minimal quantities of essential probiotics to maintain a pet’s healthy gut and provide “normal” bowel movements. Animal nutritional literature discusses the relationship between today’s diets and pet problems that include digestion imbalances, food allergies, stress, and even back injuries that can contribute to the inflammation responsible for causing anal gland issues. The relief of anal gland inflammation and “scooting” involves encouraging healthy digestion and optimizing bowel movements that insure anal gland congestion is minimized.
Ingredients in Pet Natural Anal Gland Relief™
DEL-IMMUNE V® POWDER
Del-Immune V® (see www.delimmune.com) is a natural immune modulator. An immune modulator works to turn immune response on and off as needed. This is the same ingredient formulated in Del-Immune V® supplements which are used by more than 100,000 people in the U.S. Made from a special strain of Lactobacillus rhamnosus (DV strain), Del-Immune V® acts as a first responder when support from the innate (primary) immune system is needed. This strain of probiotic has been shown in decades of scientific research to provide immediate immune support. Cell fragments in Del-Immune V® contain biological substances, identified as peptides (linked amino acids), DNA, and other amino acids, which account for modulation of the primary immune system.1 Del-Immune V® activates the primary immune response which in turn supports intestinal health. A healthy, responsive immune system is essential for fighting infection and disease, and provides protection from foreign invaders and immune stress. This is especially important for pets because immune stress may be provoked by changes in routine, diet, or environment as in the case of boarding or travel.
Natural Anal Gland Relief™ provides 25 mg. per dose of a blend of five strains of probiotics. These “good” bacteria help to restore and balance intestinal flora2, minimizing the presence of irritants in the digestive tract and anal glands. Live, friendly bacteria also help to reduce harmful bacteria and inflammation. Studies show that 70-80% of immune function exists in human and animal intestinal tracts. Probiotics in the intestinal tract coordinate and control the activity of more than 1,000 different microbial species within the natural microbiota.
100% PURE ORGANIC OAT BRAN FLOUR
Organic, non-GMO oat bran flour is the fiber source for Natural Anal Gland Relief™ because of its natural beta glucan, fiber content, and flour-like consistency. Oat bran flour provides gentle, soothing action in the digestive tract and colon.
The fiber and beta glucan rich oat bran flour support an increase in stool bulk and can optimize stool consistency, which can result in gentle anal gland evacuation during defecation.3 Beta glucans within the water soluble oat bran flour serve as an immune-protective substance.4 Beta glucans also have a calming effect on sensitive tissues, which is why oatmeal baths and shampoos are used for dry, itchy skin in humans and pets.
