Kala Dermatrix Supplement for Dogs & Cats
DERMATRIX is a great tasting fatty acid supplement containing all the nutrients needed to promote a healthy skin and shiny coat, and reduce normal shedding in dogs, cats and other companion animals. It contains a high concentration of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids (EFA) from plant and fish sources, MSM (OptiMSM, methylsulfonylmethane), vitamins and minerals important for skin and fur health. Daily supplementation with DERMATRIX prevents nutrition deficiencies which may result in lackluster coats and unwanted shedding in dogs and cats.
DERMATRIX is nutritionally superior to other Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) supplements on the market because:
• DERMATRIX tablets contain Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. Other products usually contain only inexpensive fish oil (Omega 3), and therefore lack important plant derived EFA's;
• Each tablet is a highly concentrated source of essential fatty acids of superior quality, so a bottle will last longer;
• DERMATRIX contains fewer calories per daily serving and no vegetable fillers, so they have better nutritious value;
• The dry-oil formulation make them easily digestible;
• The chewable tablets are a treat to your pet;
• They are scored so it is easy to break them for smaller pets.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane): 99.9% pure OptiMSM: 200 mg/tablet. MSM (organic sulfur) helps maintain overall nutritional body balance. Sulfur is required for the production of collagen and keratin, both essential proteins for the maintenance of healthy skin/coat.
EFA (Essential Fatty Acids): DERMATRIX contains high-quality human-grade ingredients. EFAs promote shiny hair coats. The proprietary mixture of EFA's contains 39 mg of Omega 3, 298 mg of Omega 6 and 50 mg of Omega 9 derived from vegetative and fish oil sources.
Plant Seed Oil: 700 mg (Source of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9)
Fish Oil: 100 mg (Source of Omega 3)
Vitamins and Other Nutrients for Skin Health:
Vitamin A (1500 IU) This nutrient plays an important role in the formation of new skin proteins such as collagen, and in regulating the rate of new cell development. It also protects against infections.
Vitamin B Complex (45 mcg B1; 20 mcg B2, 30 mcg B6 and 0.2 mcg B12): This vital nutrient complex is required for proper immune performance, energy production, and manufacture of skin proteins.
Vitamin E (10 IU). An antioxidant helpful for the immune system, and as a natural preservative.
Zinc (5 mg): an important mineral for healthy skin and for maintaining immune functions.
