Thorne Research Canine Geriatric Basics

Supports Healthy Aging for Older Dogs

Animal Health - Features Adaptogenic Herbs - 120 Capsules

Thorne Research Canine Geriatric Basics is a pet supplement that promotes gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health while maintaining healthy cognitive function.

Older dogs have increased requirements for specific substances not provided by a balanced diet. As aging progresses, a greater number of animal health problems can arise whose duration and severity may be mitigated through targeted supplementation of health-promoting vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and plant extracts. Canine Geriatric Basics is formulated to provide this additional supplementation.

It is formulated with specific amino acids to help geriatric patients by enhancing the production of neurotransmitters. L-tyrosine produces the catecholamines dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. DL-Phenylalanine has been shown to block enkephalinase, thereby increasing the levels of endorphins and enkephalins in the central nervous system.

Promotes a good quality of life in older dogs.

  • Now with Alaska pollock fish skin flavoring!
  • Supports healthy aging including vision and musculoskeletal support
  • Potent antioxidant support
  • Maintains healthy cognitive function
  • Promotes cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
  • Adaptogenic herbs to promote resistance to stress

Canine Geriatric Basics contains flavonoids, coenzyme Q10, and other potent antioxidants for slowing oxidative damage to the aging canine body. The canine aging process may also adversely affect the brain, resulting in decreased production of neurotransmitters, decreased synaptic density, and degeneration of neuronal membrane integrity. Phosphatidylserine positively affects neuronal membranes through support of lipid membrane components and by improving the amount and function of acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. Acetyl-L-carnitine increases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

Bilberry has been added for its beneficial effects on vision. Because aging animals are more susceptible to the detrimental effects of stress, the adrenal adaptogenic herbs Eleutherococcus and ashwagandha have been added to help modulate these effects.

Note: Geriatric patients may have a variety of problems specific to the individual, for which products such as Hepagen-C, Arthroplex, Gastriplex, or Bio-Cardio may be indicated. In most cases, Canine Geriatric Basics can be combined with these products for maximum beneficial effect.
