Hi Gregory, I’m really sorry to hear that you are not seeing the improvement you expected to see in your pup. It is industry standard to request that our customers consult their pet’s veterinarian before starting any new supplement due to the fact that Ultimate Pet Nutrition’s Customer Service Team is not aware of pre-existing conditions, allergies, or other medications your pup may be taking. We do ask this as a precaution to ensure that Nutra Thrive does not interact with anything I mentioned above. I hope this clears up any confusion. I’d like to issue you a full refund… Just e-mail me at @ultimatepetnutrition.com">Shayne@ultimatepetnutrition.com and I’ll begin the refund process right away.Erin CMember
I also purchased this product for my 8 year old golden retriever. He has severe arthritis and I noticed that he’s been eating grass lately which typically indicates some sort of imbalance in his system. I came across nutra thrive and naturally would do anything to make my dog feel better. He’s been on the supplement for a little over a month and for the most part I didn’t notice any changes at all until recently he’s been itching a lot more, a bit lethargic and yesterday just experienced a seizure. He’s never had a seizure in his entire life. I didn’t change anything else in his diet or routine except for adding this supplement. I contacted customer service about these side affects and asked if they had ever heard about other similar reactions from customers and they told me they have yet to hear and negative side affects of this supplement. Well after reading all of your posts I have a hard time believing they’ve only received positive feedback for this supplement. When I inquired about the 90 day money back guarantee they said I needed each empty container in order to get my money back. I went back to look at my purchase agreement and the money back guarantee didn’t say anything about saving used containers in order to get that refund. My advice, don’t use this product and contact your vet beforehand. If you decide to purchase call customer service before purchasing so they can tell you what they don’t even put in the fine print.

Tried this for the first time with my pup. Seems like it works for my dad’s dog but not mine. My little dachshund is 6 months and I want the best for him. He was perfectly fine and active, pooped and peed normal in the morning. I followed the directions and gave this with his food after. He threw up 3 times couple hours later. So I’m guessing either this is not good for puppies or it’s not for all dogs. This is my input. Will I give this to my dog again, nope. Would I recommend this to others, use at your own risk. I think he is ok, he ate some food and drank a lot of water . I am taking him to the Vet tomorrow just in case.
Hi Landon, I’m Shayne from Ultimate Pet Nutrition. I’mr really sorry to hear that your pup had this reaction to Nutra Thrive. Nutra Thrive is designed for adult dogs but we do have customers who give very small amounts to their puppies at their discretion. So this could be the reason as to why your puppy was not reacting well to it. I would recommend cease giving it to your dachshund until he is an adult, or give it to him at very small amounts with your vet’s recommendation. Please e-mail me at @ultimatepetnutrition.com">Shayne@ultimatepetnutrition.com if you have any other questions or issues at all. I can also issue you a full refund, as well. Just e-mail me at the address above and I can begin the refund process right away.Pat MMember
I received Nutra Thrive in August . Believing the hype that it would enhance my dogs health. He’s only 5 years old a Jack Russel mix happy and energetic. He was on this product for a month within a couple weeks he started with this hacking cough, like something was caught in his throat. I thought he was going to throw up but never did. I did not associate it with NT at the time. Then he started scratching and itching. I started to notice small patches of fur missing on his face and body, not particularly where he was scratching , but in odd places. Then his fur , which is usually smooth started to get a puffy, uneven look. My poor dog was miserable. I took him off it 9 days ago. I can’t believe I gave him this garbage. The cough is gone, he is still itching and lethargic. Instead of the good I thought would do for my dog it did just the opposite. I would not recommend this product to anyone EVER. If he doesn’t improve in a couple days I’m taking him To the vet for blood work hoping he has no liver or kidney damage. I am so heartsick over what I’ve done to my sweet pup. PLEASE ANYONE WHO HAS THIS AND NOT GIVEN IT TO THEIR DOG YET “DON’T. It’ s not worth the upset of seeing your dog deteriorate before your eyes.

YMMV but I personally see too many red flags. I read through the ‘complete ingredient list’ but it was definitely not all ingredients. I do thithink eastern medicine has a place in helping to prevent diseases, but it makes me crazy when herbs are dumped into a ‘proprietary blend’ and the pet should then ingest it every day. Most OD s that use herbal remedies provide a specific formulation for each patient based on symptoms, patient are history etc. And I would expect same for animals. Many herbs are not meant to be taken for long periods of time; some lose efficacy, others can build up. Its also unclear if many of these ingredients are naturally produced or synthetic. Sorry Shane but but I think while this may be okay for some animals, it’s not worth the many negative experiences listed.Dene CMember
I ordered this in July, just after having foot surgery. Before it arrived, I happened upon this page and read about people’s dogs getting sick from having this product. I was so alarmed, that when it arrived I did not even open the package, because if my dog got sick, I would not be able to quickly take her to the vet due to my inability to weight bear or walk.
It wasn’t until early November that I was able to walk and carry my dog if needed to the car to drive to the vet. So I started putting the powder on her food and she liked it. So far so good.
My dog suffers from chronic allergies and has been on a low-dose of prednisone for years. After she had been using this product for several weeks I stopped the prednisone to see if the symptoms would return. I was hoping she would no longer need the prednisone, but unfortunately she began coughing, sneezing, and vomiting bile.
Let me be clear, this was not in any way in reaction to this product, rather this was how she normally behaved when she was not on prednisone. I had hoped that this product would mitigate the need for the prednisone, alas it did not. In fact I saw absolutely no change in my dog’s behavior, other than the fact that she enjoyed the taste of her food with this powder on it, rendering it nothing more than a very expensive ‘spice’.
Shayne, can you help me get a refund, even though it’s past the 90 days?

I looked into this stuff when I went to a completely prey diet for my 16 month old dachshund til I realized it just wasn’t necessary and a waste of money.
No substitute for a proper diet.
Chicken and turkey feet and necks are high in glucosamine for dogs with arthritis, btw.
Hi Jerry, Shayne from Ultimate Pet Nutrition here. Thanks for your feedback. Nutra Thrive is in no way a substitute for a proper diet, rather it is a nutritional addition to a proper diet. Please let me know if you ever change your mind and decide to give our product a try. Feel free to e-mail me at @ultimatepetnutrition.com">Shayne@ultimatepetnutrition.com if you have any other concerns.Todd HParticipant
I have never…repeat NEVER written a review on any product. However, I felt compelled to do so after reading so many negative and/or controversial reviews regarding Nutri Thrive both on this site as well as Reddit.
I have 3 girls, 9,7 and 5. The 9 year old is a 45 lb. mix shepherd and some various other breeds. My 7 year old is what I believe to be a 55 lb. Jindo. My 5 year old is mostly Jack Russell. Our life revolves around our 3 girls. There is nothing we wouldn’t do for them. We feed the Mix and the Jack raw and the Jindo Fresh Pet and a small amount of freeze dried raw as she is a bit more sensitive regarding her tummy.
I bought 3 jars of Nutri Thrive about 5-6 weeks just as a supplement to potentially enhance and ensure overall health and longevity. Our Jack does have occasional bouts of chewing and licking raw spots. Our Jindo has always has had a bit of morning sickness her entire life although it has declined a bit over the last few years. Once to twice weekly she would throw up in the morning. No issues whatsoever with the 9 year old mix.
After 5-6 weeks use, the Jack (almost immediately) ceased chewing and licking. Her raw spots are completely filled in and her coat is the best it has ever been by far. As for the Jindo, I have yet to see her get sick. If she has, we haven’t seen it. As for the 9 year old, I can’t say for sure, because she’s always been a healthy, vibrant girl, but I swear I think she has more energy and playfulness about her.
I will continue using the product unless something changes. As for the one’s having negative side effects, so sorry to hear.
Best to all. A home without a dog isn’t home.
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.

I’m trying to reply to Gregory b so hopefully this isnt just a general reply but anyway I’m confused as to why your vet would say not to use any product that says to consult your vet first. EVERY single supplement and vitamin on earth says to ask your Dr before using it so why would it be different for dogs? The reason youre supposed to check is because every dog and human is different. Just because your dog had an allergic reaction to an ingredient doesnt mean the whole company is a scam. For instance they could be using a simple filler ingredient and just hypothetically lets say the ingredient was harmless blueberry extract. Well my friend is allergic to blueberries so she would have a horrible reaction to any supplement that contained blueberry in any form. That diesnt mean the supplement is unsafe! Everyones health is different and anyone could be allergic to anything and some supplements cant be taken if youre on certain rx meds etc. Like youre not supposed to take beta keratin if youre a smoker because it causes kidney damage or something. You should ALWAYS check with your Dr before taking any vitamins or supplements and thus you should ALWAYS ask your vet before giving your dog any vitamins or supplements. That’s just how it works and I cant believe youve never seen a bottle of vitamin c that says “consult your dr before taking this supplement”. It doesnt mean vitamin c is dangerous for gods sake. Some people posting here are just really ignorant. Lots of people and dogs are allergic to gluten or wheat or corn etc which are totally harmless so before you start calling companies scams and saying their products are dangerous id do a little more research altho I thought the vitamin thing was common knowledge. Also when a person begins a new vitamin regimen with high quality supplements and a lot of them, the body can react badly at first. It happened to my mom. Shes just very sensitive. You really shouldnt be shocking your dogs system and giving them the full doses all at once. I’d reccommend starting off with just a small bit of supplement powder and slowly increasing it. When I start my dogs on new food, if I dont go suoer slowly introducing that new food, my dogs will barf and be sick for a couple of weeks. It doesnt mean the food is poison or generally dangerous. Come on people use your brains! I’m considering buying this product but I’m definitely going to clear it with my vet before actually putting it in either of my dogs food. Are there any updates on the whole ordering problem on the website? Is there still no way to manage your account/shipping type of options? I also read that some of the ingredients are worthless when taken orally so thats the kind of thing id want more info on.
