Brewer's yeast is often recommended as a supplement for pets, but many people are unsure of why exactly it is so good for animals. Considered a high energy food, yeast is rich in essential B vitamins, minerals, and high quality proteins, which contain many essential amino acids. Thesework together to promote a healthy coat and skin while also helping to control shedding. Brewer's yeast is also fed to pets to help control fleas, because it seems to create an odor that helps to deter fleas. It can also help neutralize your dog's urine, helping to eliminate urine spots in your lawn.
B vitamins are involved in energy production, and they also stimulate the nervous and glandular systems. They help to extend the lifespan of cells and increase the animal's ability to obtain oxygen. B vitamins are also known to raise your pet's ability to withstand stress.
Brewer's yeast contains high amounts of the minerals chromium and selenium. Chromium is an important part of the glucose tolerance factor, which helps to maintain the blood glucose level by converting body fats back to glucose when the body needs it. This action can be beneficial to pets with diabetes. Selenium works with vitamin E to encourage proper muscle development of the heart and digestive system, as well as external muscles.
Various studies and articles, including some published in the Whole Dog Journal, state that small amounts of garlic act as a natural flea repellant, and may also be used for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Garlic acts as an immune booster for pets by promoting the production of white blood cells and may benefit pets with diabetes by working to reduce blood-sugar levels.
Brewer's Yeast & Garlic also utilizes Manganese in its formula. Manganese is a trace mineral found in tiny amounts in the body, mostly in the liver, pancreas, kidneys, and bones. Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, and it also plays a role in blood sugar regulation, carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and calcium absorption. Manganese is necessary for normal nerve and brain function.
It is recommended to use a calcium supplement and cod liver oil to provide vitamins A and D and to allow for the proper absorption and use of phosphorus and calcium, along with any brewer's yeast supplement.
For cats and dogs, provide 1 tablet daily for each 20 lbs. of body weight.

Double the daily amount during stress, convalescing, or in summer months (flea & tick season).

Even my picky eater eats these tablets with no problems at all. I do notice that all of my dogs come home with only 1 or 2 ticks on them instead of the dozens that they had before. I think it's an affordable, great product and I will continue to use it for my dogs.
all the kids love them!
i have been giving brewers yeast to my dogs for years, but this one, even the cats love! great product!!
9 ouf of 11 LOVE the taste . . .
We do a lot of cat and dog rescues. At present between my office and my home I have a total of 10 cats and 1 dog. I received a sample pack of these tabs with an order I placed for the dental probiotic powder from PSC. I was initially worried that they wouldn't like taking them. But found I darn near have to beat 'em off of me the minute I take the bottle out of the cabinet. The dog and 8 of the 10 cats absolutely LOVE the taste of these pills. In fact the minute they hear and smell me open the bottle they come running from all corners of the house. It's a regular stampede to the kitchen for them to get their "treat". The same happens with the cats at the office. The price is right and with so many that love it, I'm glad it comes in a big bottle.
Work Great and Dogs Love Them
Before I bought these my dogs would be itchy even though they were bathed and had no fleas. Within a few days of taking these they were no longer scratching and the skin on their tummies was all cleared up. If I do not order them in time and they run out they go right back to being itchy and scratching. Keep them put away though because the dogs think they are treats and will eat them all.
My cats like these....great for flea control too!
I have 2 spoiled cats, a domestic tuxedo and a flame point Siamese. The domestic will not eat these, but the Siamese (who needs all the vitamins he can get) LOVES these!
They are a daily treat, eaten quickly with that "give me more Mom" look.
Great also because my cats go out on a screened patio daily, and I know the yeast and garlic ward off the bad fleas!
At the beginning of the flea and tick season my dog was covered in fleas. I tryed a lot of different products and began to feel hopless of finding relief for my dog. Then I ordered these tablets and paired them with another product from your website and finally the fleas are a lot better. I woul love to say they're gone, but the amount of fleas there are have cut down drastically! My dog loves the garlic and yeast tabs and thinks they're treats, but gag, they stink. :) I highly recommend them!
My Dog thinks he gets a "treat" every morning!
This summer (2012) is going to be one of the WORST flea and tick seasons ever. Not a concern for my dogs as we use our flea and tick medicine paired with a brewers yeast tablet everyday. My dog sits by the hall closet every day that I'm getting ready for work to remind me to give him his yeast and garlic tablet before I leave.
