Cranimals - What don’t they do?

Posted on: July 30, 2012 by Global Pet Foods HRM

Ah summer - sunshine, warmth and fresh fruit!  ‘Tis the season where markets and grocery stores display the bounty of mouthwatering Nova Scotia sweet strawberries, tart raspberries, plump blueberries and juicy peaches!  We are lucky to be able to indulge in so much fresh local produce, not only because it is delicious but also because it packs such a nutritious punch.  They are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, fibre, phytochemicals and the list goes on and on.  With every bite we are fighting cancers, building our immune system and making our organs stronger.

What about Fido and Fluffy?  If your quart of berries is too delicious to share, how will they reap the benefits these fruits have to offer?  Sure, you might catch Fido picking wild blueberries right off the bush when you’re out walking, but we think it would be great if our pets could have that nutritional boost on a regular basis.  This is exactly what the people behind Cranimals think too!  Cranimals is a line of organic whole food supplements and biscuits made with farm fresh fruits.  The supplements focus on cranberry, red raspberry and blueberry extracts, which contain thousands of antioxidants.  There are no fillers, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives to get in the way of the organic fruity goodness. 

The ways in which your pet can benefit from Cranimals products are almost too numerous to list.  The combination of phytochemicals, polyphenols, antioxidants and flavinoids found in the fruits slows the effects of aging on the brain, minimizes bacteria in the mouth and prevents plaque and tartar build up, lowers blood pressure and improves heart function, maintains eye health, protects against degenerative diseases such as arthritis and cancer, has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, maintains urinary health and prevents the formation of crystals - just to name a few.  Kind of makes you want to eat more berries!

The people at Cranimals don’t just make supplements.  They make biscuits and chews as well!  If your dog is high strung, stressed, or suffers from anxiety, try the ZenDog biscuits.  These scrumptious snacks are made with organic pumpkin extract, which contains tryptophan, which in turn increases the “Zen” hormones in the body.  As all turkey lovers know, tryptophan makes a body feel happy and relaxed.  There are some other fruits thrown in too for their additional nutritional benefit.  New to the Cranimals line-up are functional chews called Cranivores.  Take your dog’s favourite bully stick, fill the center with Cranimals original cranberry supplement and you have a Cranivore! - the ultimate dental chew.  It delivers plaque fighting cranberry phytochemicals right to the teeth, gums and mouth of your dog and naturally reduces gum inflammation, plus they are not stinky and they will keep your dog busy!

For more information on the whole line of Cranimals products take a peek at their website or ask your friendly local Global Pet Foods employee.

Enjoy the summer fruit season.  We do hope you’ll enjoy the health benefits of every bite!
