The geriatric formula contains effective antioxidants plus Ester-C, a superior form of Vitamin C that does not cause acidity problems. Bovine liver powder (from Argentina) is a natural source of amino acids.
The tasty, chewable tablets are designed to allow quick and complete assimilation of the nutrients into the body.
Dogs are living to a much older age than they did not too long ago. There are many factors contributing to this including better vaccines and veterinary care, but one of the most important factors is better nutrition.
The older dog is undergoing many physiologic changes, and because of these changes, it is recommended that they receive additional vitamins and minerals to supplement their diet.
Geriatric would be considered any dog or cat in their last third of his or her normal life expectancy.

How They Contribute to the Overall Health of your Pet
Support the Immune System
Antioxidants support the immune system by increasing the number of antibodies (=infection-fighting immune cells) which circulate in the blood stream. More antibodies means increased resistance to harmful viruses, bacteria and parasites. Each antioxidant has its own unique function, but they all contribute in increasing the immune function, creating the best defense against infections and diseases.
Protect against Free Radical Damage
An antioxidant's job is to inhibit the effects of oxidation. Oxidants, which include free radicals, are toxic byproducts of human cells as they produce energy to perform specific metabolic functions. Oxidants are neutralized or detoxified by naturally occurring antioxidant enzymes. The daily rigors of life, pollution, poor eating habits, and even the aging process, all contribute to oxidation, thereby creating excessive amounts of damaging free radicals. Free radical damage is caused when free radicals react with DNA, lipids and proteins. Free radicals can damage the structure and function of cells and cell membranes, which may result in inactivation of enzymes and other proteins, and the destruction of tissues and organs. Free radicals are the cause of most life-threatening diseases.
Antioxidants Slow Down the Aging Process
Several theories have been proposed to explain changes in cell functioning and physiological capability. The strongest and best established scientific theory is that free radicals account for many age-related changes. Antioxidants react with free radicals and render them harmless. Their use is the surest way to slow down the aging process.
