Brewers yeast in your pets diet

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Brewers yeast hardly sounds like something that’s meant for your pet. It’s a one cell fungus used to make beer. It can be used as a dietary supplement for your pet. Brewers yeast contains B vitamins, zinc, proteins and amino acids. It’s known for boosting the immune system and promoting healthy skin and a shinny coat. It’s also been sold as a flea remedy. Some animals are allergic to yeast and diabetic pets must avoid it because yeast can interfere with the insulin cycle.  Before trying brewers yeast as a new supplement, talk to your veterinarian. He or she will determine if brewers yeast could be a beneficial component of your pets diet.

Remember, your pets count!
