What is Viacutan Plus?
Viacutan Plus is a balanced combination of plant and fish oils providing very high levels of biologically active GLA to be used as a dietary supplement to help condition the skin and coat in dogs and cats.
What are Essential Fatty Acids?
Essential fatty acids are nutrients with cannot be made in the body and have to be provided in the diet. They are essential for the formation of new cells and to keep the skin in good condition.
What is GLA?
GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) is normally formed from the break-down of essential fatty acids in the body. It is also found in large quantities in certain natural plantseed oil extracts e.g. Evening Primrose oil and Borage (Starflower) oil.If not enough GLA is made from essential fatty acids in the diet, deficiency may arise. Elderly or allergic dogs, or those recovering from various illnesses can lose the ability to convert fatty acids in their diet to GLA. Cats cannot carry out this conversion process at all, consequently they must obtain all of their GLA from a dietary source. Vicuna Plus has been specifically developed to address the needs of dogs and cats.
What happens when there is a lack of GLA?
One of the main roles of GLA, in both humans and animals, is the maintenance of a healthy skin. When there is a lack of GLA ( and other essential fatty acids) the skin can become dry, scaly and itchy. Scratching makes the condition worse and can lead to hair loss, redness, swelling and thickening of the outer layers of the skin. A vicious cycle of itching and scratching often results, which can be difficult to break.
How can Viacutan Plus help?
