Old Friend is the ultimate daily herbal tonic for the senior dog.
As our canines advance in years, we do our best to adapt and meet their needs at every stage of life. We spend considerable time and energy to make sure they have healthy food, exercise and stimulation. Above all, we tend to their health needs and to their comfort.
Old Friend was designed by a holistic veterinarian to support and maintain great health for your dog as he or she ages. Common to the aging process are the degradation of connective tissue and joints, cardiovascular, adrenal, liver, pancreatic and cognitive function. All animals, even those having lived healthy and vibrant lives, can experience changes in these common areas. In general, energy, movement or vitality may decline, either slightly or broadly. By supporting key body systems and decreasing general inflammation, your pet has a huge advantage to live life to the fullest.
What is Old Friend used for?
With youth comes the innate qualities of vigor, enthusiasm and spark. As our canine friends age, their energy and sharpness may lose the edge they used to have. Old Friend can be administered alone or added to an existing health regime. Old Friend provides an additional boost, suited to the needs of dogs in their golden years.
If your dog could use support in these areas, consider this product for your old friend:
Better energy levels
Joint mobility, jumping & running
Strong immune system
Mental sharpness & good cognitive function
Stable blood sugar levels
A Note from our Veterinarian...

Energy levels increase and stabilize. Mental alertness is heightened, allowing better focus and ability to play and have fun.
Can my dog take Old Friend with medications?
Do not use with blood thinners. May affect blood levels of certain medications or lead to alteration of thyroid hormone replacement dose.

Who makes Old Friend?
Old Friend is made by Pet Wellbeing, founded in 2001. Our goal? To bring the wisdom and experience of our caring holistic veterinarians to your pet. When your pet is healthy; you're happy.
To fulfill our vision, our on staff, holistic veterinarians have developed formulas using time-honored, traditional uses of herbs and integrated the latest scientific research. It is our aim to produce the best products for your pet that we can.
Decades ago, it was discovered through scientific means that human populations with higher intake of fish experienced less joint inflammation and less heart disease. This lead to greater discoveries and studies, and it is now widely known that DHA and EPA (the two main Omega-3 essential fatty acids in fish oil) are responsible for blocking inflammatory responses in the bodies of both humans and animals.
DHA and EPA are so important for the health of pets, that minimum levels have been established for all dog and cat foods produced and sold in the U.S.. As our pets age, they have decreased ability to deal with inflammation. Their immune systems often change and joint stiffness is considered an all-too-common problem for senior pets. Joint problems change a pet's quality of life, their enjoyment of exercise, and can lead to a daily level of discomfort that is difficult to live with.
Kidney Support: The amount of omega-3 in Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is the most appropriate amount to support pets with kidney issues, and is vet-recommended for these pets.
What is Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Used For?
A dog or cat living with joint discomfort and limited range of movement (even slight) will greatly benefit from much larger amounts of Omega-3's than is available in any standard pet diet. They will benefit from therapeutic levels of Omega-3's because certain amounts of these nutritional elements are required to block the inflammatory pathways. Fish oils are the richest source of Omega-3's. Likewise, if your pet requires renal (kidney) support, make sure he or she is taking salmon oil.
Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil from Pet Wellbeing is rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Our salmon oil, from pink and sockeye salmon, is sustainably caught in the cold, Alaskan waters. It is triple filtered and cold-processed in a human grade, certified GMP facility. Each batch produced is third party tested for mercury and other heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins and bacteria to ensure the purest product for your pet.
Watch for these signs of joint problems in your pet:
Limping and stiffness
Trouble getting to a standing position
More tired and sleeping longer
Tenderness around certain joints; may react
Reluctance to jump
In addition to support for your pet's joints, Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is an essential part of nutrition for a healthy heart, for brain and memory, and for a resilient immune system. Consider adding Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil to your pet's food every day.
Skin irritations and disorders are the most common pet ailments. A healthy pet has bright, odorless hair and skin, free of debris, grease and irritation. A pet's skin may be irritated if it has a rash, is dry and/or flaking, greasy, red, or itchy.
The causes can be numerous from food allergies to fleas and ticks and other irritants. If your pet vomits after a meal, this is an indication that he may have a food allergy. Pet owners should pay close attention to the pet's environment such as its bed or sleeping space which should be cleaned or changed frequently.
Omega 3 Skin & Itch is a human grade, high potency DHA and EPA supplement for pets derived from 100% cold water fish caught in the North Atlantic. Anchovies, mackerel, herring and sardines are sustainably caught using dolphin-friendly fishing techniques. The oils are molecularly distilled at a low temperature to preserve the potency. There are no additives or preservatives. The finished product is subject to testing for mercury and other heavy metals and toxins including PCB's and dioxins.
Clinical veterinary research has shown that EPA and DHA available from fish oil provide the necessary nutritional support for excessive shedding, dry skin, constant licking and scratching and dermatitis. These fatty acids are bio-available immediately for a fast improvement in your pet's coat and skin. Omega-3 fatty acids are also used to support joint comfort and mobility, cardiovascular health, a healthy nervous system and brain, and good immunity.
