Dr Mercola Eye Support for Pets - 180g

Availability: In stock

Dr Mercola’s Eye Support for Pets contains a blend of what are considered to be the most important eye health-supporting nutrients.

The unique blend includes bilberry fruit, lutein, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin and vitamins C and E. 

Every pet can potentially benefit from the extra support these antioxidant ingredients bring and supporting eye health is particularly important for the older dog as changes occur in your pet's eyes as part of the normal ageing process. 

Simply add the liver-flavoured powder to your pets food on a daily basis.

The Ingredients in Eye Support

Astaxanthin is considered by many to be "King" of the carotenoids, an important class of antioxidants that includes beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein, as well as astaxanthin which possess antioxidant capacity up to 65 times more powerful than vitamin C, 54 times more powerful than beta-carotene and 5 times more powerful than lutein. Astaxanthin exhibits very strong free radical scavenging ability and helps protect cells, organs and tissues from oxidative damage. It's also far more effective than other carotenoids at "singlet oxygen quenching" – a certain type of oxidation. Animals can't make their own astaxanthin, so they must obtain it from their diet. And there are only a small handful of sources. The only way to get astaxanthin naturally is to eat something that's in the food chain of the microalgae itself, such as wild salmon, krill, shrimp, lobster, or the original source of the red pigment, astaxanthin.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two other strong antioxidants that are important to eye health. In addition to being found in many green leafy plants and colourful fruits and vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the macula, or the part of the retina responsible for vision acuity. The body doesn't produce these antioxidants, so they must be supplied by your pet's diet.

Some of the most important water-soluble antioxidants for eye health are the red pigments - anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are soluble in the aqueous humor, the thick watery substance that surrounds the lens and cornea. The aqueous humor maintains the eye's intraocular pressure and transports antioxidants and other nutrients for the tissues.

Vitamin C and E are two other antioxidants that help support eye tissue. Their antioxidant properties help protect eyes from damaging free radicals.

What happens to your pet's eyes with age? Just like with your eyes, changes occur in your pet's eyes that are a normal part of the aging process.

Clouding of the lens: One change that many dog owners notice in their pet, and not just in older pets, is a clouding of the lens. Often seen in dogs over the age of 6, nuclear sclerosis usually develops in both eyes, and can be alarming to pet owners if they don't know it's a normal and painless process of aging. Nuclear sclerosis comes on gradually, and even though your pet may not see as well up close (much like a middle aged person needing reading glasses), pets adapt well to the minor changes in vision that occur.

Retina: Another normal aging change happens in your pet's retina where the cell layers used for night vision become thinner. If your dog becomes hesitant to go outside at night, this may be why. Extra lighting can help ease his uncertainty.Light-sensitive: Some dogs become more light-sensitive as they age. The muscle in the iris that constricts the pupil weakens with age, making bright light less tolerable. This too, is a normal, slowly progressing change that shouldn't create a problem for your pet.

** As always, any change in your pet's eyes that appears suddenly or anything that you find concerning is a good reason to see your veterinarian**
