solid gold's seameal supplement for cats and dogs

I first heard of seameal supplements through chatting with Branden of The Water Dish when he came to deliver our food donations from them for April.

Ever since Scooter starting showing signs of ill digestive health, I researched on the available digestive supplements available that could help. This was spurred by the fact that after deworming Scooter, no worms were eliminated. We inspected his poo under close scrutiny. Andy said his poo smelled of durian, which he stole from us around the time his third eyelid started showing. He probably cannot digest durian. Our other cats are also prone to digestive issues - last year Slinky had constipation, and she withholds her poo when she is stressed about toilets being dirty or when there are new cats in the house. Sayang was rescued stricken with gastric flu. So, I reckoned that apart from fish body oil supplements for their general health and coat lustre, we could get them digestive supplements.

Most of the digestive supplements are expensive, and don't sound very appealing to me in terms of the ingredients. But I chanced upon Solid Gold's seameal supplement, read about it - and was pleasantly very surprised at its proposed benefits.

Not only does the seameal promote digestive health, it has a whole list of other benefits. To summarise them:
  • Digestive enzymes for digestive health. This cannot be found in most proprietary pet foods because they will be destroyed during the heating processes.
  • Sea vegetation promotes immune system defenses
  • Reduces allergies and inflammations
  • Contains flavonoids which are antioxidants, useful in fighting toxins
  • Flaxseed oil containing Omega 3 and 6, useful for general health and coat lustre
  • Seameal itself also helps improve coat appearance
It is a really superb mix of benefits, all of which I am concerned about in my pets' health. The only doubts I have of it are the addition of lactose - most cats especially Oriental breeds are lactose intolerant - and lemon powder, possibly for flavouring, when cats usually don't like citrus. However, I am still optimistic about it because it may turn out both palatable and digestible for cats, and the only way is to find out by trying.

And so I will, my next order will include this supplement! It sounds really great and appealingly affordable, as most supplements seem to cost more. And they have different sizes available, for starters like me who may wish to try a small size, and larger quantities for those who want economies of scale.

  1. Brendan from The Water Dish had also recommended it to me and i went ahead to purchase it during my last order! not all my cats took to it immediately though 3 out of 6 went STRAIGHT for it like it was kitty crack! now the rest take it too, and i must say it does work, especially combined with the raw meat diet i'm now giving them. their coats are more lush and there's less shedding... and in fact, i think it's had an effect on wee Kei, who's been SUPER-HYPER since taking it! hee! so go for it - give it a try, and i'm sure your kitties will love it too!
