YARDLEY, Pa., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pet ownership is at an all-time high of 68 percent of American households, with six out of ten pet owners considering their pets family members. And as cherished family members, "pet parents" desire to give their dog or cat the best care possible for their overall health and wellness.
To help satisfy the desire of pet parents to provide better care for their loved ones, the makers of PetArmor® have launched the new VetTrust™ line of pet health products. The comprehensive line features 14 products that focus on some of the most common pet health concerns including joint health, ear care, skin and coat care, and general health and well-being. New VetTrust™ products allow pet parents to purchase vet-quality pet health products at Walmart and other retailers that offer the same active ingredients and benefits as the leading veterinary brands, but at significant savings.
"The new VetTrust™ pet health product line is the answer for pet parents who are looking for vet-quality active ingredients and performance at an affordable price for their pets," said Alex Kaufman, President and CEO of FidoPharm. "After all, the convenience of being able to purchase vet-quality products at a retail store makes it easier for pet parents to provide on-going, consistent care and better support their pet's health. VetTrust™ products are available at a much lower price than the leading veterinary brands, yet provide the same benefits."
As pets get older, it's common for them to experience joint aches and stiffness just as people do. While some conditions can't be avoided, a regular maintenance program can help.
VetTrust™ Joint Health Chewable Tablets and Soft Chews contain glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM, the same active ingredients found in the No. 1 veterinarian-recommended brand, at a significantly lower price. The proven combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM delivers maximum cartilage support to help maintain strong bones, normal healthy cartilage and joint mobility to help pets maintain an active or normal lifestyle.
Maintenance of a pet's ears is essential as ear infections are the second most common veterinarian diagnosis. The VetTrust™ ear care products are designed to discourage bacteria growth and clean dogs' and cats' ears by loosening wax and debris.
The VetTrust™ Cleansing Ear Wash contains the same active ingredients as Epi-Otic® Advanced, the leading veterinarian recommended ear cleanser. VetTrust™ also produces a Medicated Ear Rinse formulated with the same antifungal active ingredient as the leading veterinarian recommended medicated ear flush to kill existing fungus and prevent further bacterial growth.
Skin, Coat & 'Hot Spots'
The VetTrust™ portfolio offers a number of products to help pet parents clean and condition their pet's skin while providing relief from allergy signs such as 'hot spots,' commonly caused by itching, allergic reactions and excessive licking.
The VetTrust™ Medicated Hot Spot & Itch Relief Spray formulation of hydrocortisone and pramoxine provides rapid relief of pain, itching and reduced inflammation associated with hot spots. By reducing the itching and irritation, the spray can also help reduce excessive licking and chewing to allow healing to begin.
Like the leading veterinary recommended itch relief shampoo, the VetTrust™ Itch & Allergy Shampoo contains an anti-itch ingredient that quickly relieves pain and itching.
Additional VetTrust™ skin and coat care products include an Antibacterial Antifungal Shampoo & Spray, Skin & Paw Conditioning Lotion and Skin & Coat Soft Gels and Soft Chews. All products contain the leading veterinary recommended active ingredient.
General Health & Well-Being
Similar to people, a pet's diet can benefit from vitamin and mineral supplements.
The VetTrust™ Multi-Vitamin Chewable Tablets and Soft Chews contain 18 essential vitamins and minerals to support a dogs' well-being, at a significantly lower cost than other brands.
Both cats and dogs can benefit from the VetTrust™ Calming Chewable Tablets containing a combination of amino acids with three different B-vitamins, which are used by the body during periods of stress to support relaxation and balanced behavior. The Calming Chewable Tablets help maintain contentment during separation, travel, motion sickness and tension caused by changes in a pet's daily routine.
The complete VetTrust™ line is available nationwide at Walmart and other retailers, and retails from $4.98 - $14.98. For more information on the VetTrust™ product line, visit www.petarmor.com/vettrust.
