GREEN ALTERNATIVE PROVIDING EXTRA MEASURES OF NUTRITION.... WITH NATURE'S INTENT IN MIND
Formulated by one of America's leading animal herbalists, Green Alternatives offers a synergistic balance of nutritive
herbs and spirulina in an easy-to-feed formula that is designed to compliment the natural diets of dogs and cats.
When added to your companion's home-prepared or premium natural pet food, this formula provides added measures
of systemic support in a food-like form that the body can freely digest and utilize. Unlike high-potency vitamin
supplements that may provide more nutrients than the body can utilize, Green Alternatives will not place an added
burden upon the liver, kidneys, and digestive system.
