What Is Purrfect Pet CoQ10?
Purrfect Pet CoQ10 is a pure, natural antioxidant supplement that can support your pet on a cellular level. It may seem impossible, but one CoQ10 supplement can have big benefits in keeping your dog or cat happy and healthy for years. Coenzyme Q10 (which contains ubiquinol for cats and dogs) is a powerful antioxidant found in all cells. It helps to facilitate enzyme activity and energy production. As your dog or cat ages, they lose CoQ10 and the ability to convert it. Fortunately, you can resupply your pet with this vital antioxidant by adding Purrfect Pet CoQ10 supplements into their daily diet.
Purrfect Pet CoQ10 is made with Kaneka Ubiquinol™ - the reduced, active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Numerous clinical studies have reported the superior efficacy of Ubiquinol™ over regular Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) in terms of efficacy and absorption. Your pet’s body must convert regular Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) into its active form (ubiquinol) before being able to utilize it. Kaneka Ubiquinol™ is pre-converted for maximum benefit and highest absorption. It’s third-party tested, guaranteeing that you receive a pure product that is exactly as advertised.

- Supports Circulation, Cardiovascular & Heart Health
Coenzyme Q10 for dogs and cats is a powerful nutrient that is found in every cell of the body. It is responsible for providing energy for cell growth and it facilitates the activities of enzymes (the catalysts for all chemical reactions, e.g. energy production). The heart, brain, liver, kidneys and pancreas are high energy organs that require the largest amount of cellular energy to function.
CoQ10 (ubiquinone) fuels energy production in all muscle cells. Your pet’s body must first reduce the oxidized ubiquinone to its active ubiquinol form. Pets with heart or cardiovascular conditions, as well as aging pets, produce less CoQ10 and are less efficient in converting it to ubiquinol. 95% of the cellular energy in your pet’s heart depends upon CoQ10. Supplementation may increase the energy available for cardiac muscle contraction. These contractions ensure normal healthy circulation and improved blood oxygenation. Research suggests that CoQ10 can help enhance blood flow, protect blood vessels and promote healthy heart function.
CoQ10 helps to improve circulation and blood flow by preserving the nitric oxide that dilates blood vessels. By expanding the vessels, blood flow increases and tissues remain oxygenated and healthy. Studies also report that CoQ10 can help to prevent damage to cell walls. CoQ10 has also been shown to protect the heart against damage caused by certain types of chemotherapy drugs.
CoQ10 is essential for cats and dogs with congestive heart failure and other heart diseases, including degenerative mitral valve disease (DMVD), collapsed trachea, hypertension (high blood pressure), endocarditis, cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and heartworm infections. Studies* have shown that CoQ10 supplementation did appear to attenuate the hypertrophic response associated with CHF.
*Reference: Research study: The role of coenzyme Q10 in the pathophysiology and therapy of experimental congestive heart failure in the dog.Journal of Cardiac Failure. 2000;6(3):233‐242. doi:10.1054/jcaf.2000.8839.
While any pet can develop heart conditions, certain breeds have a genetic predisposition. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed has the highest rate of mitral valve disease in canines, while a Dachshund is genetically likely to develop leaky heart valves, and the Doberman Pinscher, Irish Wolfhound and Boxer breeds tend to develop dilated cardiomyopathy. Several feline breeds are also predisposed to some types of heart disease. Maine Coon cats have a genetic abnormality related to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, while Persian cats, American Shorthair and British Shorthair have a proclivity to develop a less serious form of HCM. Both dilated cardiomyopathy and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are more common in Siamese than in other breeds. Purrfect Pet CoQ10 can help to strengthen the heart muscle and enhance immunity. Clients have reported increased energy, decreased coughing, and an improved heart murmur auscultation with our CoQ10 supplement.
"I love the new CoQ10 formula for our dog, Bella. These capsules are easy to handle and administer. The outside is firmer, yet squeezable, making it easier to divide than other CoQ10 options. Thank you for providing this supplement to support Bella’s heart health. Even with a Grade IV heart murmur at age 15, she is happy, healthy, and active." - Brenda, California
- Maximum Benefit & Highest Absorption With Genuine Kaneka Ubiquinol™
The benefits of coenzyme Q10 supplementation have been researched in the scientific community for decades. Kaneka Nutrients began researching and manufacturing CoQ10 in 1977. Many CoQ10 products are derived from bacteria or tobacco, but Kaneka CoQ10 is fermented from yeast and is bio-identical to the coenzyme Q10 naturally produced by the body. With over 30 years of experience and research Kaneka developed Ubiquinol™ - one of the strongest lipid-soluble antioxidants available. It provides defense against oxidative damage to the body’s cells, including lipids, proteins and DNA. It also plays an essential role in cellular ATP (energy) production.*
*Reference: Kaneka Ubiquinol. https://www.kanekanutrients.com/kaneka-ubiquinol
Kaneka Ubiquinol™ is the reduced, active antioxidant form of coenzyme Q10. It does not need to be converted for use – it is in its active form and ready to be used by the body. Ubiquinol is up to 8 times more absorbable than conventional coenzyme Q10 making the efficacy superior to other products with standard CoQ10 - backed by over 18 clinical studies. It provides excellent support for cardiovascular health, energy, muscle function, immune health and more.

- Essential For Energy Production & Powerful Antioxidant
What’s so important about coenzyme Q10 for cats and dogs? Purrfect Pet CoQ10 can help optimize the energy production needed for healthy cells and muscle function, helping your pet to live an active, energetic life. Pets use coenzyme Q10 for cellular energy production throughout their lives, but the natural production of and ability to convert ubiquinone (the oxidized form) to ubiquinol (the active form) can lessen as pets age. Furthermore, normal aging and certain health conditions or medications can deplete levels of this important nutrient.This is one of the best CoQ10 vitamins/supplements for senior dogs.
How does cellular energy production work? Oxygen is converted to cellular energy in the mitochondria. Hundreds of mitochondria are present in each cell and CoQ10 is an essential component. It enhances the formation of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the basic energy molecule used by every cell. The demand for CoQ10 is highest in the heart, liver and immune system cells. Enhanced energy production can help these vital organs maintain optimal function and support a healthy immune response.
Ubiquinol binds to oxygen and other oxidizing compounds and serves as a critical antioxidant - essential for feline kidney disease and canine kidney disease, cancer, respiratory issues, heart disease, diabetes, liver function and overall good health. Conventional CoQ10 (ubiquinone) is not an antioxidant, so many supplements are lacking this important benefit. Kaneka Ubiquinol™ helps to protect cells, tissues and organs from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Your pet’s free radical production can be influenced by diet and environment. Poor diet and stress can cause your dog or cat to create free radicals faster and age more rapidly. Free radicals damage cell membranes and are commonly associated with chronic inflammation, cancer development, the progression of aging and chronic degenerative diseases. According to the National Cancer Institute, animal studies found that CoQ10 boosts the immune system and helps the body fight certain infections and types of cancer.
Purrfect Pet CoQ10 can help to keep senior pets feeling at their best. Therefore, this is one of the best CoQ10 vitamins/supplements for senior dogs. Numerous research studies on this vital nutrient have found it to be especially beneficial for diseases such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, gum problems, diabetes and more.
- Reduces Oxidative Damage & Inflammation In The Lungs
The lungs contain the lowest level of naturally occurring CoQ10 in the body. Every cell depends on the lungs to carry oxygen through the bloodstream. The lungs also come into contact with the highest concentration of oxygen, making them more susceptible to oxidative damage.
CoQ10 can increase tissue oxygenation and help to ease lung inflammation. Pets with asthma, coughing, wheezing, bronchitis or chronic respiratory issues can benefit from CoQ10. The National Emphysema Foundation* notes that experts recommend CoQ10 for lung health supplementation, as it has been known to improve cell activity and ease inflammation in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A second scientific study** confirmed similar results, finding that supplementation with CoQ10 reduced inflammation and the need to take steroid medications in patients with asthma.

- Helps To Repair & Regenerate Liver Tissue
The liver is the largest organ in the body. It performs over 1,500 essential functions such as the digestion & conversion of nutrients and the removal of toxins from the blood. It is one of the few organs that can regenerate new tissue after injury or disease. Supplemental CoQ10 can help to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the liver and improve mitochondrial respiration.
Studies* have shown that the antioxidant CoQ10 can destroy free radicals before they cause damage to mitochondrial cells in the liver. The mitochondria use oxygen to produce energy necessary to sustain liver function and low oxygen levels in the blood or tissue can lead to fatty deposits or damaged tissue. Studies also indicate that the improved cellular respiration can help to regenerate the liver and may help to reverse tissue damage due to liver disease.

- Helps Protect Retinal Cells From Oxidative Damage
The eye is one of the most metabolically active tissues in your pet's body. Oxidative stress plays a huge role in the damage of mitochondria, the cellular energy producers that help to keep the eye healthy. Many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, dry eye, cataracts, and macular degeneration have been linked to a decline in cellular energy production. CoQ10 can help to reduce the effects of oxidative stress relating to eye conditions.
Studies* have shown that coenzyme Q10 acts as a neuroprotective agent in glaucoma, potentially slowing or reversing pathological changes typical of the disease. CoQ10 helps to protect lipids, proteins, and DNA from the damage of oxidative stress. Supplementing with CoQ10 increases energy production which helps to improve mitochondrial function in eye conditions.
