Note: This supplement does not contain calcium, phosphorus, or vitamin D3. These deficiencies have been reported in strictly indoor piscivore species. We recommend that if your animal is not exposed to natural sunlight daily, then these vitamins and minerals should be tested and supplemented separately depending on blood levels.
Animal Necessity™ is at the forefront of the development and promotion of holistic, protocol-based approaches to animal wellness. Our latest supplement is based on research studying the mineral and vitamin degradation components in frozen fish.1 Our veterinary professionals created Opti-Marine™, a unique high quality formula to support healthy marine animals.
Opti-Marine™ is formulated to support Cetacean, Pinniped, Aquatic Avian, and Turtle species! Backed by clinical research, this multi-vitamin is optimized for the specific needs of marine animals. It helps supplement nutritional ingredients depleted during frozen storage of fish feed and includes the beadlet form of lutein for proven daily ocular support. It also includes cyanocobalamin (B12) and folic acid B complex support, including choline and inositol for brain and liver health.
