WILLISTON, VT. — FoodScience Corporation debuted several new dog supplements and treat products at Global Pet Expo Digital Access, held March 24-26, under its VetriScience and Pet Naturals brands.
Under VetriScience, the company introduced a new formula to its Composure line of calming supplements for dogs. The new formula, Composure Long Lasting, is clinically shown to last up to eight hours to provide all-day support for dogs suffering from separation anxiety, according to the company. The chew supplements can also be used for traveling, boarding, severe weather, changes in routine, or other stressful situations.
The formula includes Ashwagandha herb extract, thiamine (vitamin B1), L-theanine and a branded biopeptide blend as active ingredients to deliver extended support without altering a dog’s personality or inducing drowsiness.
VetriScience also launched its first line of senior supplements, Golden Years, specifically targeting four key health areas for geriatric dogs. The line includes four formulas: Strength & Stability, Calm & Confident, Clear & Bright and Energize & Thrive.
Strength & Stability targets mobility with glucosamine, green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) and MSM, supplemented with L-carnitine and omega-3 fatty acids. Calm & Confident addresses age-related behavioral issues such as confusion, disorientation and increased anxiety. It is formulated with a biopeptide blend, L-theanine and a patented form of phosphatidylserine.
Clear & Bright is VetriScience’s first supplement targeting eye health, featuring antioxidants, astaxanthin, grape seed extract and billberry extract to support healthy eye function and fight oxidation. The Energize & Thrive formula is a multivitamin supplement with branched-chain amino acids, B vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids to support digestive and immune system health, skin and coat, heart and nerve function, and overall wellness.
Pet Naturals launched three new products at Global Pet Expo: Impawsibly Good™ Treats, Heartibles™ heart-healthy treats, and Busy Butter™ Calming Peanut Butter for Dogs.
Busy Butter is formulated with organic peanut butter, thiamine (vitamin B1), L-tryptophan, lemon balm and L-theanine to promote calm behavior in stressful situations. The product is packaged in a squeezable and resealable pouch for on-the-go use. The formula does not include added sugar or artificial ingredients.
Pet Naturals’ Impawsibly Good Treats include three main meat-based flavors — chicken, beef and pepperoni — but each treat is meat-free and formulated with plant-based protein sources such as quinoa, chia seed, brewer’s yeast and oats.
Heartibles dog treats are designed to support heart health. They are formulated with taurine and omega-3 fatty acids, and without chickpeas, lentils or legumes. Available in salmon, peanut butter, cheese and chicken flavors, these treats pair well with specialty diets such as grain-free or raw, according to FoodScience Corp.
