Skin and coat supplements play a crucial role in the care and health of dogs and cats. A shiny, healthy coat and radiant skin are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also an indicator of the pet's well-being.
Various factors such as diet, environmental conditions, genetic predisposition and allergies can affect the skin and coat of our furry friends. This is where skin and fur supplements come into play to compensate for possible deficiencies and promote optimal health.
FORTAN Cervico for dogs and cats - Prevents eczema, itching, hair and skin damage FORTAN Cervico contains biotin, B vitamins, zinc and high-quality proteins: increases performance and general resistance strengthening of the musculature stimulation of the skin metabolism prevents eczema, itching, hair, skin and horn damage to the claws optimal pigmentation Biotin prevents eczema, itching, hair, skin and horn damage of the claws of dogs and cats and ensures optimal pigmentation. Furthermore, biotin plays an important role in protein and energy metabolism. Biotin is not produced by the organism of the dog and cat itself and must therefore be supplied with the food. All vitamins of the B-complex for dogs and cats FORTAN Cervico contains all the vitamins of the B-complex, enriched with vitamins B1 and B12. This ensures an optimal supply of all vitamins that are particularly important for cell division. Furthermore, the vitamins of the B-complex contained in FORTAN Cervico - B1, B2, B6, B12, B15, nicotinic acid, pantothenic acid, folic acid and others - are important for carbohydrate, protein and amino acid metabolism, for coat, growth and energy utilisation. Zinc The trace element zinc is a component of numerous enzymes in protein and carbohydrate metabolism. It is indispensable for the normal development of skin cells. The zinc requirement can increase in long-haired dogs, especially during the hair change, as a result of increased need. In dogs and cats, skin and coat changes are usually the first symptoms of zinc deficiency. The phytic acid contained in cereal or soya components impairs zinc absorption and thus makes it necessary to supplement zinc in the feed rations. High-quality proteins FORTAN Cervico contains high-quality proteins from valuable yeasts, composed of amino acids such as arginine, asparagine, glutamic acid, glycocolla, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophane and valine. Vital amino acids must be supplied with food, as they cannot be produced by the body itself. The high proportion of amino acids contained in the food improves the utilisation of animal and vegetable proteins.
FORTAN Biotin plus MSM for dogs and cats - Bright and shiny coat Biotin, the vitamin not only for skin and hair, has a decisive effect on metabolic and cell division processes in the organism of our pets. It influences carbohydrate and protein metabolism and also plays an important role in the cell nucleus. Biotin is also needed for the synthesis and breakdown of fatty acids (e.g. conversion of linoleic acid to omega-3 fatty acids) and for the breakdown of some important amino acids (methionine, isoleucine, threonine, valine). Its most visible effect: radiant, shiny coat, by improving the structure of the coat and skin and the growth of the dog's undercoat. No matter whether you feed your pet mainly dry food, wet food or BARF - your pet usually gets certain amounts of biotin in its diet. However, in some cases or in certain situations, such as the change of coat in long-haired dogs or cats, a nutritional biotin deficiency can occur. Signs of biotin deficiency are particularly brittle, dull coat, hair loss, itching, dandruff, tendency to eczema or brittle claws. Important: for pregnant and lactating dogs or cats: cover the increased biotin requirement with a high-dose cure.
FORTAN Germ Oil Plus for Dogs and Cats - Many healthy, unsaturated fatty acids Biologically valuable plant substances have always been used as ingredients in animal feed. With its high-quality animal and vegetable oils, FORTAN Germ Oil Plus represents a primordially healthy diet: Maize germ oil Evening primrose oil Linseed oil Sesame oil Cod liver oil Apart from breast milk, evening primrose oil is the only known source of the biologically particularly active fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid. FORTAN Germ Oil Plus compensates for the lack of gamma-linolenic acid with its evening primrose oil content. Cod liver oil with 85% unsaturated fatty acids and its natural content of vitamins A and D has proved particularly effective in combination with evening primrose oil in cases of diet-related allergies. Necessary for barfing Prevents diet-related allergies For increased need of vitamins A, D and E Improves skin and coat condition Essential fatty acids must be supplied to dogs and cats in the diet, as the animal organism cannot produce them itself. These fatty acids have properties that are otherwise only found in vitamins. Growing, pregnant, lactating and ageing dogs also need doubly and multiply unsaturated fatty acids as well as vitamins A, D and E. A beautiful, shiny coat thanks to highly unsaturated fatty acids Arachidonic acid, which is extremely important for animal nutrition, is formed in the animal body from the fatty acid linoleic acid. Highly unsaturated fatty acids give a beautiful, shiny coat. A deficiency of vital fatty acids leads to characteristic skin changes, growth disorders and poor food conversion. Germ Oil Plus and Cafortan - an ideal combination Vitamin A is necessary for bone growth and serves to maintain the health and function of the upper skin layers. Vitamin D regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin E fulfils important functions in the control of carbohydrate, creatine and muscle metabolism. When FORTAN Germ Oil Plus and Cafortan® are fed at the same time, the effect of the special vital fatty acids in the animal organism is promoted.
FORTAN Salmon Oil for Dogs and Cats - Creates Vitality and Well-Being Salmon oil is rich in essential omega-3 (14 %), omega-6 (18.2 %) and omega-9 fatty acids (44.9 %), all of which are important for balanced nutrition & health, as well as building healthy skin and a shiny coat. Too little omega-3 in the feed promotes growth disorders and impairs skin function and coat growth, and can lead to immune system disorders. Salmon oil can be added to normal dog and cat food as a daily feed supplement: Ideally suited for refining and improving the absorption of dry food. Ideal as a supplement for barfing.
