Ok, so call me a big loser, but I am so excited. Does anyone else know who he is? :scratch: He is a naturally holistic vet. Here is his website: www.petcarenaturally.com

He has a weekly show on Martha Stewart's Sirius radio channel and I listen when I can. He talks about some great things. I got really interested when I heard a replay of his show with the author of the book, Food Pets Die For. It was a great segment. All you NV raw peeps will be happy to know that Nature's Variety was one of the recommended brands.

Anyway, as most of you know I am a freak about the boys backs. Researched supplement after supplement...I was curious to know exactly what HE thought...I knew he recommended the Vetri-Science products.

I went to his site and I sent him an email and he got back to me SO fast!!!

I currently give B&R these supplements with their food in the morning:
Multi-Source Glucosamine
Vetri-Disk
(those are both Vetri-Science products)
Multi-Vitamin

His suggestion was that only ONE of the Vetri-Science products was necessary, we didn't need both. Stick with the vitamin and add this:

He said it's great for skin, immune system, and back/joints.

For you guys with older dogs he said if they were over 7 to use this:
Cholodin Flex


I know I'm a geek, I just thought I'd share. :D

Thats great-I always do some sort of research for my pups. Gunner and Petunia have been on vitamins and supplements since they are 6 and 7 months old. I got a lot of good advice from Dodgerslist.

Did Dr. Shawn tell you what the ingredients in these are? The website didn't seem to list ingredients. :scratch: I find that very strange.

You are speaking of Dr. Shawn Messionier right? He practices in the DFW area and I'm sorry to disappoint but he's known as a bit of a quack, capitalizing on fads just to make a buck. Like he advocated raw feeding, but I know people who have gone in there, and he has no advice and pushes kibble now. Stuff like that. And he's very expensive and doesn't spend a lot of time with patients. Lots of bad stories going round about him. I'd be very wary of what he is selling/recommending. :(

:thanx: for sharing. Trixie is on Vetri-Disc and has been for 2 yrs, recommended by my vet. I don't know about the rest of your vitamins etc but I do know that Vetri-Science has good products because I used it on our horses with good results.
