    8 is the new 5 I’m so Hot Still @Arknaturals Treats

    …better crib, better food better automobiles…!  Jacob just turned 8 this year but he is still often mistaken for a puppy by people we meet. His energy level, health and attitude is still playful and happy and I attribute this to his diet and also some great supplements and all natural human-grade food we feed him!

    If 60 is the new 40 in human years, then why shouldn’t 15 be the new 10 in dog years.

    Recognizing that dogs – like their human companions – are indeed living longer and more fulfilling lives than ever before, a new brand of delicious vet-recommended soft chews called Gray Muzzle has just been introduced specifically to enable senior dogs to retain or recapture levels of heart, joint and cognitive health which they enjoyed in their youth.

    The most comprehensive senior-specific remedy products of their kind on the market, Gray Muzzle is the result of years of research into the specific formulations best able to help turn the canine clock back on the physical and mental effects of aging among all breeds and sizes.

    Unlike other products labeled “for senior dogs” that in reality feature re-purposed and re-branded non-senior formulations, Gray Muzzle very specifically addresses such vital age-related concerns as joint discomfort, heart function, cellular metabolism, blood flow, and canine cognitive dysfunction (CCD).

    A standalone brand created by all-natural pet product leader Ark Naturals, Gray Muzzle is sold exclusively at independent pet and natural product stores, as well as via select etailers, at a MSRP of $13.50. Manufactured entirely in the U.S. in USDA-APHIS approved facilities, all Gray Muzzle products are free of wheat, corn, yeast, and soy, as well as artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

    • Old Dogs! Happy Joints!for improved mobility and flexibility. Ingredients includeGlucosamine HCL (a shellfish source) to help build synovial fluid that creates space between the joints and keep cartilage from rubbing bone on bone; Fish Oil (Omega-3) components to help reduce joint discomfort; and Turmeric, an Ayurvedic herb from India used for thousands of years to help reduce the pain caused by sore joints. Contains 90 bite-size soft chews.

    Jacob loved this one!  The chewy pieces were easy for him to eat and he was excited as soon as the package opened. The ingredients make this product great and since we live in a walk-up apartment and duplex, Jacob’s joint health is very important for all the stairs he has to climb up and down everyday!

    • Heart Healthy! Wags Plenty!for improved heart health. Ingredients include Taurine, an amino acid that has beneficial effects on the heart and cardiovascular system; L-Carnitine, another amino acid that benefits the heart and has been shown to have a remarkable effect in the cellular metabolism of dogs; and Egg Albumin, which contains excellent sources of vitamin B6, B12 and riboflavin and helps regulate blood volume. Contains 60 bite-size soft chews.

    This heart one he chewed, spit out and ate again. He was not quite sure about this one but I told him it’s yummy you should eat it and he ate it anyway!  Heart health is important for dogs, especially when living in an exciting city like New York 😉

    • Brain’s Best Friend!for improved cognitive function in older dogs evidencing signs of CCD such as confusion, pacing, anxiety, staring into space, or inability to recognize family members. Ingredients include Fish Oil (Omega-3), which helps brain function; Vitamin E to protect cells and prevent free radical damage; Resveratrol, containing antioxidant properties that promote healthy brain activity and function; and Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), which plays a significant role in making proteins and neurotransmitters that carry signals between the cells more effective. Contains 90 bite-size soft chews.

    Jacob was really excited about this one. He gobbled them up in 2 seconds no problem and wanted more!  Since the package advise to feed 2-4 a day for a dog 60 lbs he had his samples this morning and will have to wait until tomorrow for more!

    A dog is a forever friend! Make sure you take care of them and give them what they need so they can age gracefully.

    Susan Weiss, President of parent company Ark Naturals (and a founding member of the National Animal Supplement Council), said, “As a result of advances in pet care, many dogs are living well past the average life expectancy for their breed. Gray Muzzle was created to benefit those dogs who may chronologically be considered senior, but who aren’t at the end stages of their lives. The response to the brand among retailers and pet owners has been extraordinary, and we’re very proud to be helping dogs and humans alike get the most out of life every single day they’re together.”

    K9-GH: Anti Aging Supplements for Dogs

    If you have a dog over the age of 8, you will notice that he is not the same as when he was a puppy. Maybe he is less hyper or perhaps their level of GH has just been reduced. GH means Growth Hormone and once your dog reached maturity, it starts to diminish.

    “Behind The Scenes” for canine anti-aging product “K9-GH” from Thomas Ali on Vimeo.

    K9-GH treats are suppose to help with your dogs muscles, sleep, energy, hair, digestion, breathing and even mental improvement.  Too good to be true? You can try it – I am giving 2 a day to Jacob because he is now 7 years old.

    Since the production of GH is directly linked to the health of every bone, organ and cell, we are now able to assist any body (human or animal) in defending itself against the ravages of aging and allow it to get back to a perfect state of health and harmony. Just one chewable K9-Gh wafer each day establishes the foundation for good health and longevity by restoring Nature’s essential nutrients in one great tasting supplement. All of the nutrients work synergistically together to produce optimal results.
