In this article we describe for the first time in the veterinary field the properties of Chios Mastic for dog and cat is a white resin with an opalescent appearance, produced by cutting the stem and branches of a plant that grows on the island of Chios, the lentisk (Pistacia lentiscus), an evergreen shrub of the family of Anacardiaceae. The Mastic is known in particular for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, for our dogs and cats is a useful supplement in case of stomach ulcers, gastritis IBD and gastroesophageal reflux.

I recommend 2 products
Mastiha: leading company in the production of Chios Mastic
Or if you want a product in drops to be added to the pet-food, here is the hydroenzymatic extract of Chios Mastic.
For dogs and cats, I recommend buying Chios mastic supplements obtained by hydroenzymatic extraction, a technique for processing medicinal plants that aims to obtain a product that is as bioavailable as possible (i.e. assimilable) and contains the entire phytocomplex (active ingredients and complementary ingredients) present in the plant of origin, thus making the most of its synergistic effects. The hydroenzymatic extraction process is solvent-free, exclusive and patented. There are few side effects reported in the scientific literature. It is not recommended for use during pregnancy and lactation or in case of known allergies to the components.
