Why magnesium is good for your pets

Why magnesium is good for your pets

We all know that magnesium is important for our health, but did you know our pets need it just as much as we do? To produce the energy to keep active, our pets also need proper magnesium support. Dogs in particular are notorious for rejecting tablets… so what better way to increase their magnesium levels, than with nourishing products! As magnesium is most effectively absorbed through the skin, our latest skincare range for pets is ideal. Free from unnecessary ingredients, they target the source of pain and leave your fur babies squeaky clean.

Why do our pets need magnesium?
Just like humans, magnesium is vital for animals to function at their best and maintain a healthy immune system. Involved in over 300 enzyme systems, magnesium is essential for the absorption of important vitamins and minerals. It’s also responsible for regulating liver, muscle and heart functioning. So if your pets become magnesium deficient, this can lead to issues such as severe muscle pain, disease of the skeletal muscles and an irregular heartbeat.(1)

What are the symptoms of a magnesium deficiency?
We all want our pets to be healthy and happy, so it’s important to remain on the front foot when it comes to detecting a magnesium deficiency. Some common symptoms to look out for include muscle problems, stiffness, anxiety, seizures and hyperactivity. Depending on the age of your pet, their behaviour can also indicate feeling weak or sluggish.

What are the benefits of transdermal magnesium?
Are your pets prone to anxiety or overactivity? Magnesium is ideal for calming them down naturally as it regulates energy production. Magnesium actually helps with the enzymatic control of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the substance used to store and release energy within the body.(2) As dogs and cats age, their muscles can also tend to become stiff or sore. To reduce this uncomfortable muscle pain, topical magnesium can be used to target any areas of tension.

Which magnesium products work best for pets?
As magnesium is most effectively absorbed through the skin, we have created a collection of magnesium infused skincare products specifically for pets! To ensure your pets’ magnesium levels are optimal, switch out their basic shampoo for our Pet Wellness Magnesium Wash. Filled with naturally derived ingredients like sweet orange essential oil, this wash acts as a natural flea repellent while combatting strong pet odours. Another great option when you’re on-the-go, is our Pet Wellness Magnesium Spray. Simply spray over your fur baby to ensure they’re smelling beautiful and feeling healthy.
