Benefits of Spirulina and Chlorella
- Great sources for vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants

Improved nutrition strengthens the immune system, and helps prevent cancer in your dogs. National reports indicate that there are over 175 carcinogens in human foods.
With pet foods being less regulated, the possibility of higher carcinogens does exist. Feeding fresh food is always best, and adding supplements like Chlorella and Spirulina gives your dog a fighting chance against cancer and other dog diseases.
Cancer cells will not multiply and grow unless the right conditions exists.
Feeding your dog a healthy diet, supplemented with green super foods creates a less favorable environment for those cancer cells. As usual, get veterinary advice for making any dietary changes, and always opt for the highest quality dog food brands.
