Supplements for Puppies

Maximum Health for Injured & Recovering Dogs

Dr. Bill’s Supplement Recommendations

Dr. Bill examining dog

“Often dogs who are sick, injured or recovering from surgery will reduce their intake of food or stop eating all together. We veterinarians call this appetite change anorexia. What this really means is that the dog is not getting the nutrition their bodies need in order to properly function. Because dogs are carnivores, a single day without the essential amino acids that must come from ingesting high-quality protein will cause the dog to enter into negative nitrogen balance (losing muscle tissue faster than rebuilding it). Another way of describing this serious condition is that tissue breakdown now exceeds tissue repair – just the opposite of what you want if rapid recovery is your goal.”

“So, what is the best way to deal with anorexia? Whether recovering from illness, injury, or surgery all three conditions require rest as an important part of the recovery process. This inactivity means nutritionally they will need fewer calories yet more protein on a daily basis – a kind of balance that is not found in any of today’s dog foods.”

—Dr. Bill Barnett

Canine Ultimate Fitness & Health

The answer is Canine Ultimate Fitness & Health. One scoop contains 53% high biological value protein with all ten essential amino acids, all vitamins & minerals, 31 specialty nutrients, and only 25 calories. This combination was shown to maintain nitrogen equilibrium, eliminate muscle loss, and shorten recovery time following a major surgical operation. For this scientific study conducted at Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine, Ultimate Fitness & Health was mixed with water and tube fed. At home you can feed your recovering dog by mixing this delicious powder with warm water to make a tasty broth and syringing it directly into the dog’s mouth. If the dog is drinking freely, simply mix the dose into the drinking water. If eating, this delicious powder can be sprinkled onto whatever food the dog will eat.

Here are two more products to consider adding to the Ultimate Fitness & Health to help your recovering dog.

Canine Health Defense

Because illness, injury, and recovery result in an unbelievable number of free radicals capable of destroying millions of healthy cells – I recommend adding my Canine Health Defense. It adds a proprietary blend of Phytonutrients to your dog’s nutrition intake that is capable of triggering the production of millions of extra antioxidants that will neutralize the onslaught of free radicals that proliferate due to injury or disease. Prolonged illness can also wear down the immune system leaving a dog more susceptible to additional threats from yeast, mold, fungi, bacteria, viruses, or parasites.

Canine Immune Support

Canine Immune Support can also be very beneficial to sick or recovering dogs. It provides a highly patented, long-chain Beta Glucan that revs up the innate immune system, the dog’s first line of defense against all disease-causing organisms.

More Injured & Recovering Dog Supplements We Recommend

Canine Digestive Support

Like puppies, adult dogs also like to eat all kinds of things like poisonous plants, snails, rocks, sticks, toys, even garbage. This often results in stomach or intestinal problems such as vomiting and diarrhea. One product you might want to keep on hand is my Canine Digestive Support. It can sooth those stomach problems and the billions of helpful pre and probiotic cultures can repopulate the lost micro-flora stabilizing the intestinal tract once again for optimum gut health.

Canine Cognitive Support

If your ill or recovering dog is a senior dog, the stresses of illness or injury can bring on behaviors that could indicate the beginning of cognitive decline. Should any signs of dementia be present, I recommend starting my Canine Cognitive Support as soon as possible. Proactive supplementation is always faster and cheaper than trying to recover after a more serious decline has already started.

Made all the difference!

“I was dog sitting my son’s mixed-breed rescue while he was out of town. It was pretty evident when he got him that he had been abused, but he was doing much better over time. Pare hadn’t been to my condo before and he was so scared it hurt my heart. Cowering and afraid if I left the room. My sister-in-law uses Behavior Support on her rescue with great success, so she gave me some to try. Made all the difference! He didn’t act drugged; was just way less anxious and no more cowering.”

We've noticed HUGE improvements in her joints, health, and happiness

“We have a 9 year old chocolate lab and she had a major hip injury and surgery a few years back and her joints have never been the same. We have started giving her Dr. Bill’s Canine Complete Joint Care and have noticed HUGE improvements in her joints, health and happiness. She hasn’t been able to jump on our bed to snuggle for years and since taking this we have woken up with her snuggling up right next to us in the mornings!”

-Kelsey J., Pet Parent & Satisfied Dr. Bill’s Customer

Truly a miracle product!

“I’m actually astonished at how effective this product has been! It has made an ENORMOUS difference for our dog, Indie. We started administering the supplement to Indie, and then left on a trip to London for a week. Our dog sitters fed Indie the supplement each day, according to the instructions on the label. When we returned from our trip, Indie’s coat was glistening! It’s so much more lustrous and smooth, with less shedding. What’s more — Indie LOVES the taste of this stuff! I can’t believe the improvement we’ve seen in only a week! Truly a miracle product! So glad we found this hidden gem, and I’m excited to see how Indie’s coat looks in a month from now! Thank you, Dr. BIll! We’ll be using your products for life! (P.S. Another bonus is that the serving scoop is actually quite small, so this product will last you a long time!)”

I was shocked at how thick and smooth her coat had become!

“My dog, Lola, has suffered from itchy, dry skin her whole life. Her coat always felt a little dry and wiry. I started her on Dr. Bill’s Skin & Coat formula with few expectations, hoping it may at least help her itch just a little less. Then I went out of town for a week and when I returned, I was shocked at how thick and smooth her coat had become. I didn’t think it was possible. Not to mention, the powder smells so good, I feel like I am serving her a gourmet meal each time I sprinkle it over her dry food. Lola is a happy girl!”

-Michelle S., Pet Parent & Satisfied Dr. Bill’s Customer

Her health has taken a 180 degree turn

“I’ve been giving Lily Dr. Bill’s Digestive Support for about 4 months now and it has helped her SOOOOO much! We had been battling her digestive issues off and on for a few years now (vomiting, diarrhea, and skin reactions to food) resulting in some pretty significant vet bills. What we learned was that she was not processing her food properly. Through adjusting her diet and supplementing with Dr. Bill’s probiotics and enzymes, her health has taken a 180 degree turn. She’s feeling so good! She’s so much healthier and happier, and honestly even nicer. I think having digestive issues was just making her cranky a lot of the time. And she loves the taste of Dr. Bill’s powder, so that makes it super easy to give to her regularly. We love Dr. Bill’s!”
