OLIVE Leaf Extract for Cats
Both olive leaf and oils are found to have high concentrations of phenolics, tocopherols, flavonoids, antioxidant power, and the leaves also contain chlorophyll and carotenoid concentrations.
The study also concluded that by adding olive leaf to the oil it progressed it’s shelf life thanks to its uber antioxidant properties, “The enrichment of the oils with antioxidant compounds from the leaves also led to a remarkable increase in the nutritional quality of the Oueslati oil…
…In conclusion, the addition of a small percentage of olive leaves could improve the nutraceutical properties of extra virgin olive oil by increasing the phenolic compound content. These compounds, together with tocopherols, play a protective role against oxidative stress, being also able to extend the extra virgin olive oil shelf-life due to their antioxidative properties.” (Tarchoune, Sgherri, Eddouzzi, Zinnai, Quartacci, Zarrouk. U.S. National Library of Medicine, 2019).
So, what does this all mean for our beloved pets?
Olive leaf proves to show its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective, anticancer, antidiabetic, antiparasitic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and neuroprotective properties- just to name a few!
Another study proved that both inflammatory and cancer cell models show that olive leaf polyphenols are anti-inflammatory and protect against DNA damage initiated by free radicals.
Animal studies prove, “It has been associated with numerous health benefits including the ability to: lower blood pressure in rats, decrease plasma glucose concentrations in rats, inhibit the growth of microbes grown on agar plates, inhibit cultured parasitic protozoans and has also shown the ability to induce apoptosis in cancer cell models: colorectal, breast and prostate.” (Boss, Bishop, Marlow, Barnett, Ferguson. U.S National Library of Medicine, 2016).
Another good thing to note is that OLE only kills the harmful bacteria, not the good, and is proven to be a great source to combat yeast (candida) infections (yeast buildup in ears, mouldy ‘cheesy’ smell, greying skin, itching, yeasty paws, etc.)

Olive leaf has been used as a source of plant medicine for over 3,000 years. The olive tree was cultivated by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians for use as medicine and food. Ancient practitioners used olive leaf to fight infection, heal rashes, help with blood conditions, and for general good health. Historically, the olive tree and its branches have been considered a symbol of peace and health.
Olive leaf contains oleuropein, the phenolic compound that is responsible for many of its health benefits. Our Olive Extract for Pets is standardized to contain 20% oleuropein, which means that each capsule is guaranteed to have a significant amount of this powerful compound to ensure its effectiveness. Most comparable pet products contain about 15% oleuropein. Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is also rich in antioxidants – the compounds that can neutralize free radical damage. The leaves contain an antioxidant that is comparable to vitamin E, along with antioxidant flavonoids that help to regulate cellular activity.
Olive Leaf Extract for dogs and cats can help strengthen your pet’s immune response to bacteria, viruses and fungi. It promotes a healthier immune reaction to infections of the skin, ear, respiratory system, and urinary tract and chronic viral conditions. When combined with veterinary prescriptions, it can help your dog or cat to recover faster and prevent chronic infections.
Human-Grade Ingredients, Scientifically Proven To Support Healthy Immune System Function
Olive Leaf Extract for dogs and cats is one of the most useful and diverse natural supplements for pets available. Olive leaf is a potent antimicrobial with antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It contains protective polyphenols to improve immune function and offer powerful antioxidant protection. Olive Leaf Extract for Pet’s active ingredient, oleuropein, helps fight against pathogens while causing no harm to healthy bacteria in your pet’s gut and mucous membranes.
Olive leaves contain many beneficial plant compounds, such as tocopherols, flavonoids, and polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of plant chemicals that have antimicrobial activity against a wide variety of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Scientific research has found that olive leaf extract contains up to 30 different polyphenol compounds that work synergistically to provide exceptional antioxidant and immune-supportive properties. The polyphenol oleuropein has been tested in clinical trials and found to have exceptional combined antibacterial and antifungal action.* It can help to ward off ear infections in dogs and cats, pet urinary tract infections, and dog yeast infections.

Olive leaf powder for dogs and cats can help to minimize free-radical damage to the body and decrease inflammation. Antioxidants can neutralize the free radicals that can damage cells and weaken the immune response. Flavonoids have anti-inflammatory benefits. Decreasing inflammation in your pet’s body can help to decrease the symptoms of inflammatory conditions, such as stomatitis or pillow foot, asthma in cats, allergies, skin infections and chronic autoimmune diseases.
Fights Infection: Essential Aid To Manage Skin Conditions & Yeast Infections
Olive Leaf Extract for Dogs and Cats is especially beneficial for cats and dogs with ear infections, skin infections and yeast overgrowth (tear-stained eyes, ear discharge, cheesy smell, licking groin, yeasty paws). Cats and dogs use their skin to help remove toxins from their bodies. The toxins may be environmental, chemical, produced by the metabolic processes of their body (i.e. cats and dogs with kidney disease may have an ammonia-like smell) or yeast overgrowth from the gastrointestinal tract. When pets have a build up of toxins, it can cause red, itchy, smelly skin and continuous scratching that can lead to skin infections. Conventional veterinary treatments are antibiotics and steroids. The antibiotics can upset the microbiome balance in the gastrointestinal tract by killing off the good “friendly bacteria,” which is needed for your pet’s immune system, along with the bad bacteria. Steroid medications calm inflammatory response, but they achieve this by pushing the toxins deeper into the body. If your pet does need an antibiotic or steroid, it is very important to use Power Probiotic in conjunction with those medications.
Candida albicans, which causes yeast infections, is classified as both a yeast and a fungus. It may be an underlying cause of allergies, skin and coat problems, ear infections, and digestive sensitivities. Candida albicans, along with a host of other bacteria and fungi, are found in healthy digestive systems. The good bacteria in your pet’s GI tract keeps it in check, but the overuse of antibiotics or steroids, diets high in carbohydrates (grains and starches), environmental or food allergies, or stress can cause an overgrowth of yeast. Olive leaf is highly effective in treating many kinds of bacteria and fungus. Research* has found that olive leaf extract is effective against Candida albicans. Use Olive Leaf Extract along with K9 Yeast Defense and Power Probiotic for synergistic treatment of yeast infections in dogs.

“Bruiser had chronic yeast and skin problems. We had been to the veterinarian many times but the problem would just come back. We used Ask Ariel’s diet tips and supplements which included Olive Leaf Extract. Bruiser’s yeast finally cleared up and I receive many complements on how nice his coat looks. It was the best money I could have spent.” – Genette, Hawaii
Powerful Anti-Viral For Chronic Respiratory Conditions
Olive Leaf Extract for Cats and Dogs is a natural anti-viral supplement that is helpful for cats and dogs with respiratory conditions including asthma, chronic upper respiratory infections (URIs), allergies, and chronic bronchitis. It’s anti-viral properties make it an ideal supplement for cats with viral conditions such as feline leukemia (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV or feline AIDS), feline herpes (FHV-1), and calicivirus. Olive leaf extract has been researched for its antimicrobial activity against multiple types of bacteria and fungi that can cause respiratory infections. The research* indicates that olive leaf inhibited the growth and spread of all tested pathogens. Olive leaf extract can interfere with the amino acid production that is critical for viral replication. It can penetrate infected cells, prevent spreading and potentially destroy the virus**. Olive leaf extract has been used as an adjunct veterinary treatment for feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline herpes (FHV-1).

Supports Urinary Tract Health
Olive Leaf Extract for Dogs And Cats is effective in treating dog or cat urinary tract infections (UTIs) because of its antibacterial activity against specific pathogens. The urinary tract is naturally resistant to bacteria. As urine passes through, it kills much of the harmful bacteria in the tissue membranes, but there is always the risk of infection. The most common pathogens in pet urinary tract infections are Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Pseudomonas spp. Scientific research studies have shown olive leaf extract to be successful in eliminating Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus pathogens.*
UTIs can be very painful for your pets. They can cause frequent and difficult urination, blood in the urine, smelly urine, and genital licking. Urinary tract infections in cats and dogs may be caused by bacteria from dirt or feces, a weakened immune system, or chronic antibiotic use. Unfortunately, some pets are more susceptible to repeat UTIs. Olive Leaf Extract combined with Power Probiotic can help to prevent the cycle of reinfection.

Helpful For Vaginal Discharge & Vaginitis
Girl dogs can get the same problems “down there” as their moms. Many women can understand how uncomfortable and distracting this can be. Bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections are common forms of vaginitis. Vaginitis in dogs can cause symptoms that may include swelling, redness, itching, strong odors, and white or yellowish discharge. The symptoms for bacterial and yeast infections are similar, but yellowish discharge with an unpleasant smell commonly signals a bacterial infection. Please check with your veterinarian if you think your dog may have a bacterial infection as prescription medication may be needed.
Olive Leaf Extract For Pets can help prevent bacterial and yeast related vaginal discharge and itching. Olive Leaf contains phenolic compounds, such as oleuropein, that exhibit antimicrobial and antibacterial activities and inhibit the growth of yeasts, fungi, viruses, and bacteria* in mucous membranes. The natural properties of Olive Leaf combined with Power Probiotic can help prevent vaginal discharge, vaginal licking and repeat infections for your female dog. Using these products together is especially important if your dog has been on antibiotics for bacterial vaginosis.

Olive Leaf Extract For Pets can be used along with veterinary prescriptions to help support blood sugar and insulin levels in dogs and cats with diabetes. Olive leaf has been used to treat blood sugar issues for hundreds of years. Research has shown that the polyphenols in olive leaf can increase insulin sensitivity and increase insulin production in the pancreas, helping the body to better metabolize sugar. Scientific research* showed that animals treated with olive leaf extract had increased insulin levels and reduced blood glucose levels.

Digestive System Support
Olive Leaf for dogs and cats can help to improve digestion because of it’s antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown it to be effective against Campylobacter jejuni and Helicobacter pylori*. Olive Leaf Extract is not the equivalent of an antibiotic. It can be used in conjunction with treatments from your veterinarian.
