Hudson asks friends to try Nu-Vet!

Poodle Supplements?  We all want healthy immune systems & beautiful coats!

Having shown Siberian Huskies for decades, I have tried many coat supplements through the years, as we all want gorgeous coats on our show dogs. With Poodles, often the supplements I have purchased have been more geared towards general health---something to stop allergies, itching and ear infections. Lovely coats were just a plus, since I didn't show my Poodles. But now that I have "Hudson" (Prodigy's Content of Character) who is being shown UKC, a lovely coat is also important!

Siberian Huskies of the show lines I have owned, will eat anything you put on top of their food. NOT so with Poodles. So when Heather Bryan of Prodigy Poodles told me about Nu-Vet, and how their regular formula would be great for Hudson, and their NuJoint Plus would help my older Standard Poodle, the first thing I thought was "I have spent so much on supplements that I could not get Poodles to eat!"  Right now I have huge containers in my refrigerator of another brand that requires me to add cottage cheese in order to get the dogs to touch their food if I add even half a teaspoon to their food!  And quality supplements are NOT inexpensive, so it is frustrating to invest in something you cannot get in to your dog!

We have 7 dogs here at the moment, including two young show dogs (a two year old Siberian Husky and our lovely parti-colored Poodle boy who is almost a year old now).  We also have some senior citizens with special health needs. The care, nutrition and training of our dogs is an important part of our life. When Heather of Prodigy Poodles said NuVet supplements were the best, we knew we had to at least try them.

We were thrilled to find out that they come not only in powder form, but also in a tasty chewable tablet that dogs gobble down like a treat!  And yes, ALL SEVEN of our dogs, including the elderly picky Poodle who is on the joint formula, are all tail wags when I pick up the NuVet bottle and shake it!  Hasn't even been quite a month, but coat seems to be regrowing on the elderly Dachshund whose skin made her an unhappy camper, no matter what type of diet she was on.

We are expecting everything that NuVet and our Poodle mentor have told us about Nu-Vet products, which is beautiful, shiny coats, strong clean teeth, healthy vision and strong immune systems. NuVet Plus is designed to combat free radicals and assist in providing your pet with vitamins, minerals, herbas and antioxidants needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle into old age. And after all, isn't that what we want for our dogs, a healthy life and longevity? And no more working hard to get the healthy ingredients into my dogs, beause the dogs LOVE the tablets, they think they are treats!  But they are not treats, they are full of goodness, take a look at the ingredents in Nu-Vet Plus:

Alfalfa -- Helps to increase appetite and aids in poor digestion.
Alpha Amylase -- Aids in the absorption of NuVet Plus into your pet's cellular network as efficiently as possible.
Beta Carotene -- A form of Vitamin A production, which is required for skeletal growth, embryonic function, and reduces cancerous tumors in animals.
Blue Green Algae -- Strengthens the immune system, promotes intestinal regularity, purifies the blood and assists in the smooth operation of the brain and nervous system.
Brewers Yeast -- A balanced natural source of the B-Complex Vitamins that has been proven to reduce the number of fleas in our companion pets.
Cats Claw -- An herb that has amazing healing properties, it aids in treating cancer, viral and respiratory infections, allergies, arthritis and rheumatism.
Desiccated Liver -- A rich source of B-Complex Vitamins.  It strengthens the nervous system, aids in digestion, tissue formation and production of red blood cells.
Evening Primrose Oil -- Digestive stimulant, aids in management of arthritis and rheumatism, decreases blood clotting.
L Methionine -- Improves skin and coat, reduces fatigue, prevents excess fat buildup in the liver.
Oyster Shell -- Rich source of calcium required by the structural framework of the bones.  It also aids in the proper functioning of the heart, nerves and muscles.
Papain -- Aids in protein digestion, and helps to cleanse the tissues and intestinal walls of all waste matter.
Pine Bark -- The most powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidativec damage to the cells and vital tissues.  It reduces cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis and helps prevent premature aging.
Potassium -- Required for the proper function of the muscles and regulates the amount of water in the cells.
Selenium -- Studies have shown it to help protect cancers of the lungs, colon, rectum and prostate.
Shark Cartilage -- Anti-inflammatory healing agent that has also been shown to be effective in hip dysplasia, arthritis and may shrink tumors by impeding the formation of blood vessels to the tumor.
Taurine -- An amino acid that promotes healthy hearts and is needed for normal vision. (Note from Melanie:  Also I have founr taurine is an amino acid that has calming properties for nervous dogs)
Vitamin C -- A key factor in the immune system, including white blood cell function and interferon levels.  It combats the effects of frree radicals and promotes growth and tissue repair.  Many breeders use Vitamin C and Vitamin E to help in prevention of cataracts caused by environmental components.
Vitamin E -- The most effective chain-breaking lipid-soluble antioxidant.  It protects the cell structure against free radicals.  It significantly improves the immune system and reduces heart disease, anemia, nutritional "muscular dystrophy" and neurological abnormalities.
Whey Protein -- Builds and maintains muscle mass.  Boosts the immune system which protects against viruses and bacteria.  We all want good muscle tone on our show dogs and our pets!
Zinc -- A component of over 1200 enzymes that work with the red blood cells to move carbon dioxide from t he tisseus to the lungs.  It promotes normal growth and aids in wound healing, cell division and maintains normal levels of Vitamin A. (Another note from Melanie---many breeds, such as Siberian Huskies, are prone to zinc deficency syndromes, so they need additional zinc to prevent this condition)

Using NuVet Plus helps our dogs to build a strong immune system and they market the product as one that greatly reduces the onset of these all too common problems:

� Scratching                 
� Itching
� Hot Spots
� Allergies
� Arthritis
� Premature Aging
� Low Energy Levels
� Cataracts
� Digestive Problems
� Heart Disease
� Tumors

Allergies, skin and coat problems, arthritis, tumors, cancer, cataracts, strokes and heart disease are just a few of the 50 major diseases caused by free radicals.  Unfortunately these diseases lead to suffering and premature death in our pets.  The Veterinarians, Physicians, Pharmacists, and Nutritional Scientists of NuVet Labs have blended a precise combination of human grade, natural vitamins, minerals, herbs and antioxidants proven to combat the ravages of free radicals. This is a supplement that benefits dogs throughout their lifetime, from pups to senior dogs, so all of my guys are getting this to keep their immune systems healthy and their coats beautiful.  After all, when my Poodle mentor sent me a dog with a gorgeous coat like this, what could be a better advertisement?

NuJoint Plus
Natural Anti-Inflammatory Hip and Joint TherapyAvailable for Dogs
Hip Dysplasia, Osteoarthritis and Joint Damage

NuJoint Plus contains the finest pharmaceutical, human quality ingredients including precise percentages of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Methysulfonymethane (MSM) and Vitamin C which will help to quickly and effectively reverse and heal the devastating effects of osteoarthritis.  Major considerations in formulating NuJoint Plus were the pharmaceutical grade quality of ingredients and their healing values, as well as the bio-digestability and utilization into the cellular framework. This supplement is great not only for older dogs, but also for performance dogs that are always at risk for orthopedic problems due to jumping, etc Also, if you have a dog healing from an injury like an ACL surgery, please consider this supplement. And just like Nu-Vet Plus, my older dogs gobble these up just like a treat!    Here are the ingredients:

MSM supplies biologically active sulfur to animals joints which has been shown to reduce the rigidity of cells in the soft tissues of the body.  By increasing flexibility, fluids are able to pass more freely from the cell and this helps to reduce cell pressure and in turn reduce flammation and pain.
Glucosamine provides the joints with the building blocks needed for repair of damage caused by osteoarthritis.  Acting as a catalyst it aids in the production of new cartilage to replace damaged cartilage.  Hip dysplasia occurs when normal wear and tear break down cartilage.
Chondroitin attacts and hold fluids within cartilage helping to lubricate joints, increase mobility and reduce discomfort caused by hip dysplasia.  It also reduces the destructive enzymes which break down cartilage.
Vitamin C promotes cartilage growth and tissue repair and is a key factor in the immune factor.
