Helping My Dog Abby Live Longer!
Abby loves her daily Brazil nut :)
Dr. John W Finley, supervisor of the Trace Element Absorption and Bioavailability Laboratory and the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, and one of the leading researchers on selenium stated: "Selenium is an essential trace mineral of fundamental importance to human and canine health. Adequate selenium is necessary for the normal functioning of the immune system and thyroid gland."
Selenium is receiving considerable attention for its possible role as an effective naturally occurring anti-carcinogenic agent too!
Since Abby is an older dog she also takes Hyaluronic Acid and Fish Oil (without vitamin D) for her joints. It's working so well she's able to go on longer walks again (phew!) Gotta get the weight off my yo yo dieter :)
