Study shows antioxidant capacity of dog supplement

Pets can benefit greatly from a diet that includes a high level of antioxidants according to data from Brunswick Laboratories of Norton in the US.

This laboratory tested Casey Pets Essential Supplement, a new dietary antioxidant supplement for dogs. Researchers measured the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) level in Casey’s supplement to be almost six times the antioxidant capacity of foods typically associated with high antioxidant levels.

Developed by scientists at the USDA Office, the ORAC value has long been considered a reliable means to measure the levels of antioxidants in various foods. Fruits like blueberries and cranberries range from 65 to 95 on the ORAC scale; in comparison, Casey Pets Essentials Supplement measured at 621. 

“The results of this study affirm the outstanding health benefits of the Casey Pets supplement for dogs,” said Pete Maletto, senior scientist and president of PTM Food Consulting, Inc. “The spice mixture has a profound antioxidant effect and should be seriously considered by pet owners as a way to maximize their pet’s current diet.” The powder is easy to use, and needs to sprinkled over the dog’s food.
