Your pet's skin is one of the largest organs of its body.
The skin and coat of your companion animal is so much more than the fluffy exterior that covers them and that you love to pet and cuddle. The skin regulates their body temperature while it provides protection from harmful influences outside of the body like bacteria. It contains blood vessels, nerve endings, sweat and oil glands and helps with the elimination of waste. The coat helps to protect from environmental factors such as the sun, rain, cold, heat, and insects.
Healthy skin and coat comes from within. You can literally tell a lot about the whole health of your cat or dog simply from their skin and coat.
A luxurious thick shiny coat says better overall health than a thin, old, dry or dull coat.
The Nature's Intelligence stamp is on all of our labels. It is our guarantee to you that you are choosing the best for your family. Our products are made with mindfully selected whole foods and gratitude for what nature provides.

Feeding the Skin for health
The skin is an organ that must continually regenerate itself. Special nutrients that are necessary to help with this process are not able to be made by the body so must be obtained by supplementing the diet. Omega 3 fatty acids are at the top of list to achieve this. Essential fatty acids are necessary nutrients for moisturizing the skin from within and to prevent the breakdown of collagen.
