I started using Nutra Thrive a little over a month ago and am on my second can, also using the Omega 3 brain booster powder and the juviflex vitamins. My dog has been very tired all day, maybe less energy than normal. Not sure if it’s the rainy cold weather. But also I have noticed that since he has been sleeping next to me on the couch or when he’s on the bed, he is having seizures in his sleep and I have to nudge him to wake up to stop the sleep seizures. I am not sure if the Nutra Thrive is giving my dog seizures. He has had some small short seizures before the product, but that was like years ago once in a blue moon, not recently. I’ve noticed he’s been having a lot more frequent seizures every time he sleeps next to me. Also, I researched online what causes seizures in dogs and its either a deficiency or an “excess” of potassium,caclcium,ect some of the ingredients used in the Nutra Thrive. So too much of it can actually be bad and cause the seizures in dogs as well. That’s very risky. Also not sure if crominex C+ which is supposed to extend a dogs life has side affects. Not sure if that can cause cancer like the human diet loss supplemt Chromium. Can Silica ingredient in the Nutra Thrive cause cancer? There are a ton of ingredients that seem like the ingredients put into the Whey Protein Powders you buy at the gym that have Chromium and tons of ingredients that cause cancer and liver and lung cancer and death. Not sure if all of these ingredients in the Nutra Thrive are completely natural or not, or if there are some compounds that cause liver lung or cancer. Initally my dog would not touch the food, like Christophers dog. And I had to throw out tons of canned food because eh would not eat the green stuff mixed in with the canned food probably because of the bad overpowering smell like fish food that the dog did not recognize the meaty smells in the can food anymore. Then he started finally eating it, maybe because he was desperate and hungry. But for the hard food, it looked like it had molded over the hard food and got green gunky on the bottem of the bowl, like it could mold, even the soft food. When I tried adding water to the mixture and the food, the hard food sticks together and hardens altogether like a rock which is harder for the dog to eat. With adding the water to the food and green mixture of nutra thrive, all the food sticks together and hardens and gets soggy and could mold more easily, it doesn’t stay separated and hard if you want to leave the food in the bowl for the dog all week. Also the Juviflex vitamins are hard for the dog to eat whole, so I would have to chop them up in tiny pieces and mix it into the wet food. If I did not use the nutra thrive in the soft food, it would last for another day to eat. If I did use the Nutra thrive, it would green up and smell bad and kind of mold over and be inedible for the next morning or day. And I would have to throw all the food out. Also, I think like everyone’s concern is that it’s too expensive to afford and spend a few months supply for like $400, which I did. There should be a whole bag of Nutra Thrive for $50, not a tine can. Now my dog is having seizures after the first can and I taking him to the vet for a checkup, and am wary to try the remaining cans and juviflex vitamins.
