What is SlenderPet?
SlenderPet is a 100% herbal remedy specially formulated to assist pets to maintain healthy body weight by supporting liver and thyroid functioning, metabolism, and the body's ability to eliminate fat. Used regularly and as part of a total weight management program, SlenderPet is a very effective remedy for pets.
Weighty issues in plump pets…
In the wild, animals will naturally eat what they need and no more. The task of searching for food and other basic necessities involves lots of exercise, so wild animals remain naturally fit and healthy. The food available to them in their natural habitat is perfectly designed to meet their needs in an environment that has not been tampered with.
Domestic animals are provided with food which they do not have to hunt for and that is not always suited for their bodies. This means they often do not exercise as they should. Hunting also prevents boredom, and bored domestic animals may eat more than they need to keep themselves amused.
Selective breeding programs have often further affected the ability of our pets to properly process the food that we give them. In addition, certain breeds are known to be more prone to putting on weight than others.
The natural way
The first step in encouraging healthy body weight in animals is to examine lifestyle factors like diet and exercise. The second is to determine whether other factors like boredom or a sluggish digestive system could be contributing to making your pet plumper than he should be.
Natural remedies can be very effective in supporting body functioning to process food efficiently. Supporting thyroid and liver functioning, maintaining healthy digestive processes and metabolism, and supporting the liver's ability to process dietary fat will all help to keep those extra pounds off your pet.
Natural medicine can also help to improve all-round systemic functioning and restore health and vigor to pets. Along with an improved diet and regular exercise, natural remedies can help your pet to naturally attain a healthy weight and enjoy a life full of vigor.
"We know that we have to treat the whole animal in order to address the problem. We also have to be sensitive to pets who have become accustomed to associating 'treats' with love and affection, and find other ways to show our love towards them. Many people who 'comfort eat' also inadvertently train their pets to do the same, with very unhealthy consequences, believing that they will be depriving their pets by withholding treats and junk food. Nothing could be further from the truth! Instead of offering that tidbit, caress your pet - you will both feel much better for it!"

What are the Ingredients?
SlenderPet is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Bladderwrack, Dandelion, Milk Thistle, Rice powder, Turmeric.
- Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis) is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. Iodine assists in the production of thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining healthy metabolism in all cells of the body.
- Turmeric (Curcuma longa) was used more than three thousand years ago by Indian healers in the management of healthy body weight. Modern research has shown that Curcuma has a tonic effect on the liver, supporting the flow of bile, which is responsible for the breakdown of dietary fat. It has also been studied for its ability to support overall health (Ruby, A. J., Kuttan, G., Babu, K. D., Rajasekharan, K. N., and Kuttan, R. "Anti-tumour and antioxidant activity of natural curcuminoids." Cancer Lett. 7-20-1995;94(1):79-83)
- Milk Thistle (Sylibum marianus) is regarded as one of the most important herbal liver tonics and restoratives and its use may be traced back more than 2000 years. Milk Thistle has been subject to many clinical trials which clearly demonstrate its effectiveness. Clinical studies have shown that it helps the liver to maintain normal functioning. (Katiyar SK, Korman NJ, Mukhtar H, et al. "Protective effects of silymarin against photocarcinogenesis in a mouse skin model." J Natl Cancer Inst 1997; 89(8):556-566.) Scientific analysis of Milk Thistle shows that it contains a flavonoid complex called silymarin, which is largely responsible for the therapeutic benefits of this herb. Silymarin is a powerful anti-oxidant and can help to promote healthy liver functioning. (Mourelle M, Muriel P, Favari L, et al. "Prevention of CCL4-induced liver cirrhosis by silymarin." Fundam Clin Pharmacol 1989; 3(3):183-191.)
- Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, D, C, various B Vitamins, iron, lecithin, silicon, potassium, magnesium, zinc and manganese. It supports liver and gall bladder functioning and may also assist in the maintenance of healthy blood pressure within normal levels, as it supports fluid balance in the body. (Racz-Kotilla, E., Racz, G., and Solomon, A. "The action of Taraxacum officinale extracts on the body weight and diuresis of laboratory animals." Planta Med 1974;26(3):212-217. )(Hook I, McGee A, Henman M, and et al. "Evaluation of dandelion for diuretic activity and variation in potassium content." Int J Pharmacog 1993;31(1):29-34.) Taraxacum also contains bitter principles which have a beneficial effect on the liver and digestive system. (Kuusi T, Pyylaso H, and Autio K. "The bitterness properties of dandelion." II. Chemical investigations. Lebensm-Wiss Technol 1985; 18:347-349.)

How do I use SlenderPet?
SlenderPet comes in convenient capsule form. Capsules may be swallowed whole by larger dogs. However, most owners find that it is easier and more convenient to open the capsule and mix the contents with wet food or a (low- fat) treat, preventing stress to both pet and owner. Cats especially hate to have medicine forced down their throats and will happily eat the dried herb when it is mixed with a little fish or meat.
Cats: 1/2 capsule twice daily
Dogs under 20 lbs: 1/2 capsule twice daily
Dogs 20-50 lbs: 1 capsule twice daily
Dogs over 50 lbs: 1-2 capsules twice daily
Get optimum results with regular use
While conventional medicine works by often treating the symptoms in your pet, natural medicine strives to create holistic balance in their body to support systemic health, relieve ailments, and help prevent future disease. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, the natural ingredients in our remedies support the overall health and functioning in your pet, rather than just suppressing symptoms.
Pets respond to natural medicine in different ways, some pets experience immediate results while many other pet owners have reported optimal benefits taking effect in their pets within 3-6 weeks. To ensure your pet receives optimum results it is important to administer natural remedies as directed and remain consistent. You may also find that a smaller maintenance dose is beneficial for ongoing support, many pets take a regular maintenance dose as part of a preventative program for continued health and well-being.
Safety during pregnancy and nursing has not been established.
How long until I see results?
Results will vary depending on factors like diet, exercise, and overall health of your pet. We will not promise (like many companies do!) that your pet will lose weight overnight, still be able to eat an unhealthy diet, and never have any exercise.
However, we can guarantee that the condition and weight goals of your pet should gradually be met and you should notice a glossier coat, more energy, and a happier-looking pet as time goes by. As attested by many of our customers and their pets, SlenderPet does the trick, without compromising your pet’s health.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet (see below) will further enhance your pet's health, as well as the effectiveness of SlenderPet.
How long does one bottle last?
Depending on the size of your pet, one bottle of SlenderPet will last 15 - 60 days.
What else can I do to help my pet?
- Do not change diet suddenly. Instead, slowly introduce fresh, raw and unprocessed food into your pet's daily diet, while reducing commercial foods and those with little nutritious value.
- Keep diet varied and interesting, but watch out for foods that your pet may be allergic to.
- Regular exercise helps to build up a healthy appetite and gets all organs in the body functioning well. It also helps to relieve stress and contributes to a healthy, happy pet.
- SlenderPet may be alternated every week with our Detox Plus™ for pets who have toxin build-up caused by poor diet and environmental pollution.
How has SlenderPet helped others?
“I have a chocolate Labrador who loves to eat - ANYTHING!!! She was waddling around like a duck everywhere she went. My vet told me to 'harden my heart' and change her diet and she had to go for a run every day. To be honest, the same could be said for me, so I decided to join her! It was the EcoSlim Drops for me and SlenderPet for her and we are both looking much healthier. We have our run everyday and we are eating well, but no more junk for me and my 'Lady'! ”
“I wanted to write and thank you for recommending SlenderPet for my cat. Along with the dietary changes you suggested, she has never looked better and is also far more active than she used to be. She used to sleep all day and all night and never show an interest in anything. I thought she was just lazy but she is now behaving almost like a kitten again!”
“I have used SlenderPet on my Lab mix since January of this year and am ecstatic to report that she has lost 20lbs so far and is almost at her ideal weight. She has a thyroid problem and no matter what the vet and I tried, her weight would not budge. She is swift on her feet again, even though she is 7 years old… Thank you so much for your wonderful product.”
