This is a brown marine plant that is high in minerals and contains vitamins A, B, E, D and K. It also contains sodium alginate (algin), which helps remove heavy metals from the dogs system. Kelp is a good source of iodine that helps promote thyroid function and can benefit animals who suffer from hypothyroidism.
Kelp is ideal for balancing glandular functioning in dogs. Iodine is essential for stimulating the thyroid gland. Kelp can help maintain a shiny and healthy skin and coat in dogs. Dogs with dry skin, skin allergies and alopecia (hair loss) can benefit from eating kelp. After a diet that includes kelp for at least six months, these animals will often have shiny, thick coats. Their skin problems can improve; dryness and itchiness will also reduce.
The protein content in kelp is effectively used to manage tissue repair in dogs. Three weeks or more of use can also control flea manifestations in dogs.
Another benefit of iodine in kelp is that it helps to better manage dogs’ weight by improving their metabolism. Experience shows that with improved metabolism due to better glandular functioning, the overall health of dogs on kelp improves, their energey increases and they suffer from few infections. The high fiber content in kelp has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-rheumatic properties that benefit our pets.
