If you wait until the point that your dog is showing the signs of injury or deficiency, it’s too late. The damage is already done. The key is to provide these nutrients to your dog before something happens that is either irreversible or at the very least costly to repair. Dogs are getting injured at an alarming rate. Whether it’s a back or neck injury from that extra little enthusiasm of wanting that Frabo, turning the corner around the blind quicker or speeding around that agility course in hopes of shaving a second or 2 off their all time best. Dogs need nutritional help.
If we could recommend 1 product to you for any breed of dog or any activity, it would be Vertex®
delivers a protein and amino acid profile that causes even the human supplement maker’s jaws drop. Predigested liver, whey and egg! Unequalled and unmatched for PER, BCAA’s and absorbable protein content. What’s even better is that because of the nature of these proteins and their nearly 100% digestibility and absorption, you don’t have to break the bank feeding it. 1-4 tablespoons per day for most breeds and activities.
Compare that to our competitors. You’ll need to feed CUPS of theirs. Let’s talk glycogen for a minute. Ever heard of it? Probably not but believe me, your dog and maybe even you have felt the effects of depleted glycogen stores. It’s like going to your bodies’ energy reserve account and the account is overdrawn. Glycogen is the body’s first choice for quick energy and the only choice for brain fuel. It is produced by the liver and stored there and also in muscle tissue. Glycogen production takes time and when those stores are gone, they’re gone. Dog’s bodies are much more effective at converting food to glycogen stores, that act as money in the bank, fuel wise, but even with the increased efficiency, they tend to use the stores so rapidly in these unnatural sports that we do with our dogs that they are often running on empty tanks. In order to replace glycogen stores rapidly and without upset to the system, there is only 1 answer. Glucose polymers.
Glucose polymers in the form of maltodextrin are complex carbohydrates that when fed at the correct time, convert to glycogen relatively quick. The absolute finest glucose polymers are used in Vertex®
. They are also pre solubulized so that they dissolve instantly in water. Cold or warm. Do you know anyone taking glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate or even MSM? If you feed Vertex®
, your dog will be taking it. Quite a lot of it too. All three nutrients are now recognized by several health organizations for their effectiveness against pain and inflammation, especially and most specifically in the joints and connective tissue. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are components of normal cartilage. They are the building blocks for proteoglycans and stimulate chondrocytes to make new collagen and proteoglycans. Because these supplements stimulate the production of new cartilage components, the supplements may be able to help the body repair damaged cartilage. There is evidence from patients that Glucosamine and Chondroitin can reduce pain from osteoarthritis, usually within several weeks to months after initiating therapy. MSM has shown benefits for a range of health problems including arthritis, muscle and joint pain. MSM has shown promise in the inhibition of pain impulses along nerve fibers, (analgesia), lessening of inflammation, increasing blood supply, reducing muscle spasms, and softening of scar tissue. Vertex®
contains pharmaceutical grade Glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and MSM in just the right ratio to give your dog enough but not too much.
If we sound like an infomercial, we apologize but sometimes it takes a huge description so that people understand what Vertex®
is about. What we’re about. That is to help you take better care of your dog, whether it’s in the show ring, on the field or on the couch. Any dog can and will benefit from Vertex®
of we’ll make it right with you.
