Zinpro is a patented organic source of zinc for animals. Zinpro is made by linking the amino acid methionine with zinc to form a structure (zinc methionine) that can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.Dogs need zinc for healthy coats and for normal pigmentation of the coat hair. This results in a brighter hair color and adding longer life to hair. Zinc may be added to some animal food sources but this does not necessarily mean that it is available (absorbed) and utilized. Some familiar sources of zinc (zinc oxide or zinc sulfate) may not be readily absorbed during digestion and much of what is ingested is excreted without benefit. Also, extra supplementation of these inorganic sources tends to cause digestive upset such as diarrhea.Zinc is present in every body tissue and every tissue fluid. Among the trace minerals of the body only zinc is found in greater concentration. Zinc serves two broad functions:- Enzyme Function (necessary for a strong immune system and good digestion) and- Protein Synthesis (cell reproduction in skin, coat, footpads, nails which are mostly protein - 85%).Zinpro is not harmful. It is not a drug. It causes no side effects and is not toxic.WHAT TYPE OF SKIN & COAT PROBLEMS BENEFIT MOST FROM ZINPRO?Even if a dog is fed a premium pet food or a special diet, and is still having skin & coat problems they may be Zinc deficient.Some of the signs and symptoms are:- Zinc responsive dermatosis- Poor hair quality - dull coats- Chronic shin problems - hotspots, allergies, dry flaky skin, skin scabs - Excess shedding of hair - chronic hair loss - Animals with zinc absorption difficulties - Animals fed high cereal or high meat diets- Many large breed dogs and many arctic breeds- Animals with zinc absorption difficulties- Dogs with excessive skin wrinkles, that tend to develop a wet skin condition (Spaniels, Sharpies, Bulldogs and Terriers- Poor quality Footpads & Nails- Dogs that have been diagnosed as having Allergy conditionsOTHER QUESTIONS & ANS
