BioSKIN&COAT is a natural, bioflavonoid based antihistamine that targets histamine receptors—where the central allergy response takes place. BioSKIN&COAT is developed to promote skin and coat health by supporting normal immune system and histamine response to allergens. Added to an organic, whole food, seed-cake to optimize palatability and nutrient bioavailability,
GMO-Free BioSKIN&COAT was designed specifically for the canine and feline metabolism and gastrointestinal tract, with biologically active ingredients that have not been exposed to oxidation.

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 BioSKIN&COAT it is the Quercetin 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.

NN.G0S0 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 BioSKIN&COAT 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 BioSKIN&COAT formula to begin to work in a very short time.
