I took both my pugs off several supplements right now (not just Springtime)… I have food & allergy tests run about every 6 months and this time around something I’m giving them triggered for NutraSweet in it as well as some of the normal food allergies I usually see. I’m not sure what it is so I’ve completely scaled back to rotating in a few of these things:
organic coconut oil, mercola krill oil, mercola enzymes and probiotics, braggs apple cider vinegar, and a hypoallergenic phycox joint supplement. I’ve used these over the year… and these have not triggered anything for the pugs. Not sure where the NutraSweet came from but I don’t want it in their diet.
Just when I think I’m wining the battle with their allergies or food choices, something changes…. and Spring is here in CA! My pugs are so different and it is hit and miss with products I try… what works for one, makes the other super itchy…
I have been looking at the Bug Off garlic though… even ordered the granules but they have not arrived yet. I was just at the vets yesterday and they were trying to suggest accuguard which is an oral pill.
Not sure if this helps but I find sometimes you just need to test it out, cross your fingers and see how it goes…
Dawn aka Pugsonraw…
Thanks guys for the responses… I’m going to try some of their products out. Just ordered the Advanced Hip and Joint, C-formula and Fresh Factors.
I was just looking over the Springtime website today and they have some deals again. How did the longevity or advanced joint and hip work out for your dog? Would you order again?
Let me know…..
I haven’t tried Herbsmith products but have heard of them. I’m super excited about the results I’m seeing so far on the Skin-eze as I’ve tried a variety of products (quercetin, Moducare, Chinese herbs from ONP, Skin Balance from ONP) and several other substitutes for Benadryl without much improvement.
It seems to be working with them. They are more alert and not having any stomach upset or diarrhea on it. I’m going to keep using for a while.
The delivery from ONP came today……these nibblets look exactly like VItal Essentials freeze dried. The are hard and the beef is pretty much the same size as the VE beef product . The chicken and the venison are smaller. They are about half the size of the beef nibblets.
I’m trying to decide if I will use as a meal or a treat.
I was once searching for a joint supplement on the ONP website and it was the exact same ingredients/percentages of a brand name one, although I can’t remember what it was.
I’ve placed an order and going to test drive it. The nibblets and packaging almost look very similar to the new NV instinct packaging that I saw at the pet store.
I’ve had both good and back experiences with ONP. I know they let you return their private label items if you are not satisfied and I’ve done this before.
I will have to check out the ONP nude good review. I think I’ve only looked at the Max meat review.
I think I’m going to give it a try for my pugs….I was at the farmers market this morning and found a raw honey booth so I bought a jar. I cracked it open when I got home and did a taste test. I can’t see how the dogs won’t like it! It was delicious!
I’ll start with a small amount and see how it goes…..
I decided to try out the Starwest Botanicals products that HDM suggested in the above thread. I ended up ordering kelp, alfalfa, spirulina and wheatgrass from the Swansons website. They came in the mail and these organic powders are so fresh! I concocted a mix and have been using them foe the past few days for the pugs.
Thanks HDM – this super greens recipe is a keeper!
