New Isotonic Rehydration Drinks for Pets Available Now
Tonisity is delighted to announce its new range of products for the pet industry. Animal health and nutrition companies have identified a gap in the market for effective over-the-counter isotonic drinks for pets. Quick, reliable rehydration is key to ensuring effective hydration in pets and avoiding potential health issues.
In initial trials comparing fluid intake versus water, dogs drank four times more DoggyRade than water. In similar trials testing fluid intake in cats, cats drank three times more KittyRade than water. The new pet products include isotonic rehydration drinks for cats and dogs and a meal enhancer for dry pet food.
- DoggyRade is an isotonic drink that encourages fast hydration in dogs. It increases fluid intake, helping dogs to rehydrate quickly after exercise and older dogs to drink more regularly. Water alone does not replace electrolytes that are lost through exertion. DoggyRade contains the necessary electrolytes to help dogs rehydrate and contains prebiotics which help to support gut health, improve digestion and nutrient absorption.
- KittyRade is an isotonic drink that encourages reliable hydration in cats. It is well known that a major cause of medical problems in cats arises out of insufficient fluid intake. KittyRade increases fluid intake, helping cats to stay hydrated. Cats are fussy drinkers and are sometimes reluctant to drink plain water. KittyRade’s aromatic chicken smell and delicious taste entice cats to drink. It contains prebiotics which helps to support gut health, improve digestion and nutrient absorption. It includes glutamic acid, an amino acid that is beneficial for intestinal function and also contains taurine, an essential amino acid for cats, which promotes eye and heart health.
- YummyRade is a meal enhancer to improve the taste and palatability of pet food. It provides a flavor boost that entices both dogs and cats to eat their food. This can be particularly helpful if pets are on bland diets or just fussy eaters. Many gravy toppers are high in calories and fat-based, but YummyRade is extremely low in calories and fat. You can use it to make your pet’s food tastier, without worrying about weight gain or creating digestive issues. It also contains prebiotics to support good health.
Tonisity’s CEO, Arie Halpern, stated, “When people exercise, we take sports drinks to help replace the fluids and electrolytes that we have lost. The same principle applies to pets. They need quick rehydration to help avoid dehydration and return to normal quicker. Our range of isotonic drinks are designed specifically for each species, with a view to improving hydration and avoiding potential health issues.”
Tonisity’s Director of Research and Development, Dr. Ava Firth DVM DACVECC stated, “I am confident that our new pet product range will benefit dogs, cats, their owners, and their veterinarians around the world.”
