Keep your canine healthy with a daily dose of Omega Caro-E Canine.

Researchers at the University’s Functional Foods Research Unit have developed the unique supplement to ensure that your best friend stays healthy.

Prof Spinney Benade and Dr Maretha Opperman, who are the inventors of the Omega Caro-E supplement, have found that it’s just not humans who can benefit from their unique supplement formula. According to them canines can also do with a healthy dose of fish oil, carotenes and vitamin E.

Benade says Omega Caro-E canine includes additional ingredients which are needed by canines, such as iodine and anti-oxidants.

The researchers have also taken into consideration the taste of the product and opted for a smoky meat flavour. The supplement will be available in a liquid form as an emulsion

The researchers are currently developing a similar product for felines.
