- BioFIBRE Nutrition Facts
Flax, Sunflower & Sesame Seed Fibre
Lignan-rich blend that encourages nutrient absorption from supplements and food, and functions as a hormonal support for spayed and neutered pets
Maintains healthy connective tissue with antiinflammatory and analgesic properties
Bromelain is active both in the acid environment of the stomach and the alkaline environment of the small intestine. This may make it particularly effective as an oral digestive aid for those pets that do not digest proteins properly. Since it is primarily the proteins in foods that cause food allergies, bromelain might reduce food allergy symptoms as well
Reduces bacterial translocation, and increases the protein synthesis of enterocytes, enabling them to increase their rate of self-repair. Supports normal immune system function and help support normal recovery from exercise; helps maintain normal body composition. Repairs damaged intestinal mucosal barrier
Amino Acids – Taurine, Cystine
Building blocks in the production of hormones, antibodies, muscle and structural tissues.
Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack)
Supports healthy thyroid function and metabolism.
Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Extract & Coenzyme Q10
Supports reduction of oxidative damage, healthy heart, immune function and insulin regulation
Supports normal digestion, improving the environment in the bowel and preventing pathology to develop and promote healthy microfloral ecology

What does “not for long-term use” mean?
This purposely vague description is neither clearly defined nor is it a fixed duration of time. It may include a time frame of several days, weeks, months or even years. Health Canada requires the use of this statement on our labels as part of the Interim Notification Program (The Program) for Low-Risk Veterinary Health Products (LRVHP). This statement is summoned when certain ingredients are present in a product, such as enzymes or various herbal extracts. In BioSENIOR it is the Bromelain that requires the statement.
Dietary supplements, such as BiologicVET’s, are quite safe to take every day. However, it is best to keep in mind that the long-term use of any supplement should be discussed with your trusted veterinarian. They will help evaluate and assess the pros and cons of supplementation based on your animal companion’s unique and individual needs.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Administer orally. Mix one half scoop (2.5 g) per 4.5 kg (10 lb) of body weight to a maximum of 6 scoops daily. Add to raw, moist or dry food. If desired, add water to make a gravy-like paste. For best results, divide between two meals.

NN.DWY2 Veterinary Health Product (VHP)
Veterinary Health Product Notification Program
There continues to be an increasing demand for Veterinary Health Products (VHPs) in Canada, such as vitamins, minerals, traditional medicines for companion (pets) and food-producing animals. Health Canada’s Notification Program for VHPs builds on a previous program (i.e. the Interim Notification Pilot Program) and reflects the following guiding principles:
- The mandate of Health Canada’s Veterinary Drugs Directorate (VDD) is to protect human and animal health and the safety of Canada’s food supply. In support of this objective, the VDD sets standards and promotes the safe use of veterinary drugs (including VHPs) administered to animals in Canada.
- There is a need to ensure that VHPs are regulated in a flexible and risk appropriate way, in order to minimize the burden on industry and facilitate access to products that may provide additional tools for maintaining health and welfare for animals. For example, many low risk products are used as additional health management tools and may reduce the need to use conventional drugs, including antimicrobials.
- Given the safeguards of the Program, including pre- and post-market oversight of VHPs imported and sold in Canada, Health Canada considers it unlikely that a product satisfying all applicable requirements could present a risk to the safety of animals or humans, including food safety. Health Canada takes a risk-based approach when a regulatory non-compliance is identified.
Changes made to the Food and Drug Regulations in 2017 permit the importation and sale of Veterinary Health Products (VHPs) in Canada provided the following rules are met:
- Manufacturers are required to follow the Part 3 – Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) in the Natural Health Products Regulations;
- All active, homeopathic and traditional medicine substances used to make a VHP (in accordance with any applicable conditions) are as described on List C: Veterinary Health Products [Note: under this Program, this is called the List of Permitted Substances]
Product labels must:
Include the statement “Veterinary Health Product / Produit de santé animale”
Follow the labelling rules of the Food and Drug Regulations
Include any applicable mandatory label statements as described on List C
Companies are required to notify their VHPs to Health Canada:
At least 30 days before selling a VHP in Canada
At least 30 days before making a change to a VHP that is already notified in Canada
Before importing a VHP into Canada
Companies are required to report any serious adverse drug reactions to Health Canada
The Program is in effect as of November 13, 2017.
BioFIBRE Delivery System—Nutrition Facts
The delivery system of BioSENIOR is a certified organic blend of defatted flax, sunflower and sesame seed providing the good bacteria in the intestinal tract of the dog or cat a valuble prebiotic food source to improve their immune system. This fibre also supplies plant estrogens called lignans that the good bacteria convert into mammalian estrogens balancing hormone function in the dog and cat especially when they have been spayed or neutered.
Each scoop (1 tbsp) will provide at minimum 20 mg of lignans, enough for the Vet recommended amount of 1 mg of lignan per lb of pet weight. By improving the intestinal tract function, immune system, and hormonal function of the dog or cat there is better absorption of the nutrients from the formula as well as from the food they are eating allowing the BioSENIOR formula to begin to work in a very short time.
