Pets get stressed too. With its brand Lactium, a natural stress-relief ingredient originally developed for human health, Ingredia gives the pet industry the chance to develop innovative and effective products
Moving house, having work done, growing family, new pet addition, going on holidays, or maybe just finding a new job: that’s life! But for our pets, it is a completely different story: I do not know my territory anymore, intruders are moving in, I no longer understand my place in the family, I’m left alone for hours on end...
When stress rises for a pet, it may not only lead to behaviour disorders, but can cause gastro-intestinal or urinary disorders (as in FLUTD), skin or weight issues, cardiovascular troubles or immunity disorders.
Lactium is a milk protein hydrolysate which contains a bioactive decapeptide called α-casozepine. Lactium acts on the GABA-A receptors in the brain. It has no side-effects, such as sedation, addiction or drowsiness. Lactium is safe and can be given at all life stages: puppies, kittens but also lactating queens and bitches.
Lactium is strong with 4 clinical studies conducted on privately owned cats and dogs, that showed a decrease in stress and stress-related symptoms. It is already available in several pet food and pet supplement products on the market, with great veterinarian and consumer satisfaction.
Committed in sustainability and expert in innovation, Ingredia works alongside its customers to help them succeed, now and into the future. To better feed and protect pets, Ingredia offers natural bioactive ingredients clinically proven and sought after for their recognised positive effects on health and well-being.
