Pets in our society have assumed a significant role in our culture.  They are trained to care for the basic necessities of those who would, otherwise, struggle to do so.  They serve in both civilian and military protective service units.  And, of course, they are regular members of our families.  We love them!!

An unfortunate part of pets being assimilated into our regular lifestyle, is the prevalence suffering from diseases associated with the “human condition” – diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cancer… you name it.

As part of this, it is no wonder that many people care so deeply for their pets, that they care for them more than they do for themselves.  Just like humans, pets can respond to Nrf2 activation.  And, it is a wonderful thing for a family to know that their family member will be around a little while longer!!
