The more healthy their living environments and circumstances are, the less likely, however, there will be a need for them to utilize natural supplements, composed of essential vitamins and other compounds that their bodies are not able to produce, just like humans find it incumbent to do today. Human beings’ living environments have been drastically altered over a period of time spanning four centuries. With increased levels of pollution and drastically reduced availability of natural food, humans have become prone to regular illnesses and diseases.
To compensate for a number of deficiencies, many adults have felt compelled to take natural supplements, if they haven’t been medically advised to do so. But with increased urbanization and less natural space being available for wild animals to roam, animals have become more susceptible to diseases which they are no longer naturally able to control or circumvent. Many wild life species have also been threatened, but thankfully, many are being nursed and cared for until such time as they are able to return to a habitat that is natural and safe for them.
Because of the nature of such custodianship, horses under human care and management generally do have more than enough acreage to roam. But the problem of being too close to urban centers remains. Regular veterinary inspections, if under proper custodianship, are par for the course in a horse’s life. In this life, one appetizing treat it can look forward to is that of specially formulated horse supplements which are usually added to the equine creature’s regular diet of oats.
Domestic pets, cats and dogs, are also being fed natural supplements to help them cope and overcome precarious conditions that may have negatively affected their health. It gets added to regular meals as a tasty, meaty tidbit.
