Looking to add a natural health product to your pet care roster?

Consider adding functional mushrooms to the mix.

With pet parents seeking natural options to keep their furry companions healthy and happy, the market for pet supplements has grown by 6% annually since 2020. That’s a $1.9 billion market … and it’s still growing.

What Do Functional Mushrooms Do?

Functional mushrooms contain adaptogens: the naturally occurring substances that support the body in its response to physical and mental stress. 

Adaptogens don’t just play a role in human health; they are equally important to dogs, cats, and horses.

Research on functional mushrooms indicates that the adaptogenic components increase longevity, support a healthy lifestyle, optimize weight and metabolism, and reduce allergies in humans and animals alike.

With 80% of veterinarians reporting inflammation-related disorders (like gum disease, allergies, and arthritis) in their animal patients – mushrooms present a pathway to improving the most commonly reported ailments.
