Bladders aren’t the most attractive of all organs. (We’ll give that trophy to the brain.) In dogs, bladder health is difficult to maintain; whether you’re a practicing veterinarian or a dog owner, you’ve probably noticed the frequency of concerns over canine bladder wellness.
There are several factors that contribute to bladder health. Aging and spaying are likely the most common; in female dogs, bladder health tends to be even more difficult to navigate due to hormone level fluctuations. Germ accumulation is often a factor in bladder health (dogs lick and scratch like no others) and dietary influences also come into play.
Vetri-Science has decided that this category of health deserves its own type of support. Designed to support proper elimination of toxins and normal hormone levels, especially in spayed females, Vetri-Bladder Canine Chews are our way of telling these pups and their owners that they’re not alone. This new supplement contains soy protein extracts that yield isoflavones, phytoestrogens that help maintain normal bladder muscle tone and support proper bladder emptying.

Another ingredient inthese chews is something we couldn’t pass up: red clover powder, one of the richer sources of isoflavones in supplementation. The estrogen-like effect of red clover isoflavones may attach to estrogen receptors throughout the body, specifically the bladder, supporting hormonal balance. This attachment can also support the body in addressing incontinence, through supporting bladder strength.
It’s important to talk to your clients about their dogs’ bladder wellness. Because bladder health can affect other systems and dogs’ overall comfort, Vetri-Science knew we had to provide a comprehensive, intelligent option for support—we hope you feel the same.
