  • Selected active ingredients and top microencapsulation technology.
    • Target

      Dogs

    • Objective

      Sustaining gut physiology.

    • Product description

      plus4pet®Dog is a microencapsulated blend of botanicals and organic acids. Intestinal health is the basis of every individual’s general health. Stressful periods or events can impair gut physiology that needs to be restored. The patented synergy between the active ingredients is specifically formulated to support intestinal health and well-being. Botanicals and organic acids can help restore a physiological status, sustaining the intestinal barrier functionality, beneficially modulating the microflora and the immune response.

  • Essential active ingredients and cutting-edge microencapsulation technology.
    • Target

      Dogs

    • Objective

      Sustain the healthy status of skin, fur, eye function, growth, reproductive performance, and immune system function.

    • Product description

      plus4pet®AD3E is a microencapsulated vitamin complex for healthy pets.
      Puppies need vitamin A for growth, muscle, and neurological development. It is also fundamental for pregnant females. Some breeds are more exposed than others to vitamin A deficiency.
      Vitamin D is essential in mammals to regulate calcium homeostasis, phosphorus balance, remodeling of bones, dental health, immune system regulation, vision, and muscle growth. Dogs are less efficient than other mammals in converting vitamin D from its precursor, so it is critical in supplying dogs with the diet.
      Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant agent, it supports the immune system function, improves the skin status, and supports reproductive functions. However, this vitamin is strongly degraded by the stomach and the environment: microencapsulation technology protects the active ingredients and improves their delivery to the intestine.

  • Top microencapsulation technology and selected, high-performing active ingredients.
    • Objective

      Supporting joint function and alleviate pain associated with arthritis.

      Articular diseases affect 20% of the canine population over the age of 1 and the large-breed dogs have the highest risk to develop some degenerative and painful problems at this level. Chondroitin and glucosamine help support joint function and alleviate pain associated with arthritis: glucosamine regulates the production of collagen in cartilage, while chondroitin reduces the activity of injurious enzymes in joint fluid. These two molecules are involved in the synthesis of the cartilage’s building blocks, the glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. Moreover, both glucosamine and botanicals may have an anti-inflammatory effect on joints. The other dietary components, the environment, heat treatments, and the gastric digestion strongly affect the bioavailability of the active compounds for the animal at the intestinal level, reducing their effectiveness.

    • Target

      Dogs

    • Product description

      Plus4pet Condrois a premixturefor dogs that uses spray-cooling microencapsulation technology, which ensures the protection of the active ingredients from the interactions with other molecules into the feed, from the environment, during transportation and against the thermal treatments needed to produce pet-food, maximizing the protection of the active ingredients and allowing an extended shelf life of the product. At the same time, the Plus4pet Condro has different and studied particle sizes of the microbeads. In this way it ensures the stomach bypass and the slow release of all the active ingredients along the whole intestinal tract of the dog, maximizing their bioavailability and effectiveness.
      The product is in free-flowing and readily miscible microbeads.

    • Target

      Dogs

    • Objective

      Global physiology and health.

    • Product description

      plus4pet®Omega is a microencapsulated algae oil.
      Omega-3 fatty acids, like DHA, are extremely important for dog physiology and health. These compounds are important for the skin and coat health, but also needed for the brain development of puppies, to reduce the negative impact of arthritis and sustain the immune system and heart function. These fatty acids can also help reduce anxiety and hyperactivity, as well as sustain the animal fighting cancer

  • sezione2
    Top microencapsulation technology and highly available vitamin C.
    • Target

      Dogs

    • Objective

      Support health status and the physiological function of kidneys.

    • Product description

      plus4pet®C is a microencapsulated vitamin C.
      Vitamin C is a fundamental antioxidant agent for all mammals that can reduce and prevents damages caused by oxygen free radicals. Dogs synthetize this vitamin in the liver, but a high amount of ascorbic acid in the organism is important to sustain the immune system function, produce collagen, and properly absorb the other nutrients at the intestinal level.

  • sezione3
    Cutting-edge microencapsulation technology and highly available vitamin E.
    • Target

      Dogs

    • Objective

      Improve immune and reproductive system function.

    • Product description

      plus4pet®E is a microencapsulated vitamin E.
      Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant agent, it supports the immune system function, improves the skin status, and supports reproductive functions. However, this vitamin is strongly degraded by the stomach and the environment: microencapsulation technology protects the active ingredients and improves their delivery to the intestine.
