Antioxidants & your Pet
Dr. Jane Bicks talks about Antioxidants & your Pet
Free radicals are extremely reactive chemicals. They are produced within
the body and are by-products of normal daily biochemical reactions.
They are also produced outside the body and are by-products of the normal
every day environment like chemical flea and tick products, heavy metals,
exhaust fumes, parasites, drugs, ultraviolet rays, house and garden
pesticides, bacteria, fungus, and more.
Over 1 million free radicals can be ingested in one breath.
Free radicals can wreck havoc in the body by eating cells, destroying DNA,
proteins, enzymes and depressing the immune system. Many scientists believe
they are the cause of accelerated aging, cancer, and many other degenerative
Perdue University Veterinary School data shows that over the last 30 years,
24% of over one million dogs treated were diagnosed with one or more chronic
diseases including cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Antioxidants defend against free radical damage by combining them and then
neutralizing them so they can no longer damage cells!
Scientists believe DNA is critical to maintaining the health of both cats
and dogs. It is thought that around 80-90% of human cancers are due to DNA
damage. (Doll & Peto 1981)
A study conducted by Waltham (pet food company) in 2001 investigated free
radicals and DNA damage. Results of the study concluded that dogs fed a
special blend of antioxidant rich food had 26% less DNA damage than dogs fed a
typical commercial blend of food. Cats had 17% less damage than cats fed a
typical commercial blend of food.
