Biohacking for Pets: Supercharge Pet Health & Longevity – Dr. Gary Richter | 1084 | Dave Asprey

You’ve heard lots on this show about biohacking, longevity, and how to help your brain and body perform better. But what if you could do the same things for your pet? I’ve spent most of my life with pets and/or farm animals so I’m thrilled to have my longtime friend, Dr. Gary Richter, America’s favorite veterinarian, here to tell you all you need to know about biohacking for your pets.

Dr. Gary Richter, DVM, is a distinguished veterinarian, international bestselling author of The Ultimate Pet Health Guide, and founder of Ultimate Pet Nutrition. He’s also the author of two new books, Longevity for Dogs and Longevity for Cats. Dr. Richter is certified in veterinary acupuncture, as well as veterinary chiropractic, understanding the benefits of both conventional and holistic treatment methods. He also places great emphasis on the well-being of the pet owner, knowing that a sick pet can cause great strain on a person’s life.

Today, we talk about what supplements your pet should be consuming, how you can regenerate their health, genetic testing for pets, what’s coming in the future, the things a lot of people believe about pet diets that are absolutely not true, and a bunch of other stuff from a top expert in the field.

All the studies show that having a pet raises your oxytocin. It makes you live longer. It increases heart rate variability. It makes your kids have healthier gut biomes, on and on. Tune in to start learning how to support your pets as well as they support you.

  1. Ha ha Dave teasing me as a vegan cat lover 😂 Thank you so much for this talk! Gary is awesome, I give my cats supplements from Ultimate Pet Nutrition! They are so important to me. They eat raw food, collagen peptides, probiotics, organ meat, goat milk and other supplements! My Cthulu is 17 and not on any medications, I want him to reach 26 too!! I've been trying to find krill oil for them. I have not really given enough attention to vitamin D in my boys, so thank you!!
