Whenbestiewas a little under a year old, I found myself in the first cohort of theCSIRO's Innovate to Growprogram. One of the things I saw there, was data that showed a correlation between business growth and R&D activity.
Leaving the litter, moving into a new home, weaning, growing, training: there’s a lot to stress out puppies! The early developmental period lays the foundation for health later in life and longer term behaviours may start here.
The Chill-Pup is an immune-boosting and calming health jelly that helps reduce reactivity and the impact of stress.
Chronic inflammation and stress can actually suppress the immune system, and have a long term impact on health. In fact, anxiety is a form of stress but there are others and the knock-on health impacts can be wide-ranging and serious
Adaptogens and other foods and herbs can support the immune system and help it return to normal function; adaptogens are also 'stress-protective'. They're ingredients in The Pep-Up, an anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting health jelly is designed to support your dog’s immune function and put a pep back in their step!
Stinky breath is not just yuck! It can also be a sign of oral bacteria, or even gum disease. Stinky breath or halitosis is also a common problem. In fact, 4 in 5 dogs over the age of 3, has some sort of dental disease. We explain how The Smooch, our anti-bacterial and immune-boosting health jelly helps reduce stinky breath, and support your dog’s oral health.
Anxiety manifests in a variety of behaviours - some of which may be a surprise. We explain a range of the behaviours here and also outline the link with stress and the health impact.
Dogs are commonly treated with either training interventions or medicines, but research shows that an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant supplement was found to reduce both clinical and behavioural symptoms after 10 days.
As dogs age, their brains age too, especially in learning and memory. Their decline mimics human cognitive decline and age-related deteriorations are unlikely to improve without treatment. In fact, over 11 years old, 1 in 3 dogs will show signs of ‘ageing brain’ and over 15 years, that number will be 2 in 3.
Here we outline research that shows how a specific antioxidant-rich supplement was effective in delaying the decline and the addition of gingko was also effective.
