K9-Rx is the highest quality, most innovative and complete nutrient dense based dog food available today, BAR NONE!. It is the product of years of research into canine physiology, together with a close scrutiny of the pet food industry today. I looked at how food choices benefit you and your pet, and more importantly, how critical needs are not being met. Along the way we discovered the difference between giving our dogs an ordinary life vs. the opportunity for a long, incredible life experience. As you will see, we took a giant step ahead by taking a small step back.
We dog owners tend to buy and feed our pets the same food day in and day out. Many dog foods are made from low quality ingredients. Protein often comes from rendered animals and slaughter house remnants. "Rendered" (meaning dead and processed) is a common term used in the dog food manufacturing process. Other ingredients can include grains considered "unfit for human consumption." These remnants are a questionable source of nourishment.
Relying on the same source of protein and other
nutrients provides an incredibly narrow scope of nutrition that can’t
possibly meet your dog’s ever-changing needs. Plus, it deprives them of beneficial nutrients they’ve been exposed to over the course of evolutionary history.The
sheer volume of name brands makes it tough to determine what food best
suits the needs of your pet, especially since within brands there are
all manner of choices targeting age, weight loss, protein source,
allergies and more. Labeling requirements differ significantly from
human food, so there is very little basis for comparison.
Generations of domestication and in-breeding have created particular challenges specific to breeds. Some dogs are more sensitive then others.
K9-Rx is the one simple solution to meeting these tough challenges!
If your canine companion could suddenly speak, what do you think are some of the things you might hear? Of course you expect us to say that every dog would ask for K9-Rx, but in fact that’s the last thing they would do. Surprised?
Don’t be. Dogs don’t know fact from fiction when it comes to brand names. A Rolls-Royce versus a 1978 Dodge Dart… they’re both just a chance to feel the rushing wind, and inhale a tapestry of new and different smells. Designer accessories… A collar is a collar, isn’t it? And what about premium dog food? Premium-shremium…. Just make it taste good and serve it on time!
So what exactly are some of the valuable things your furry friend could tell you? How he or she feels, of course! Too bad most of us have little clue as to how our dog companions are really doing from day to day. Sure we look for signs: a wet nose, lagging appetite, lethargy, irregularity, itching… but that’s as scientific as we get. Imagine where our society would be if a wet nose was a major indicator of human health!
Good Health Depends On Proper Nutrition
Nutrition has a direct effect on a dog’s health. In fact, much more so then exercise. For example, did you know that an overweight dog will experience much better weight loss results from eating less food, then from exercising more? Differing sharply from human physiology, where increased exercise can address the problem of obesity all by itself, canine health is substantially more dependant on nutrition. When it comes to feeding our canine friends, nutrition is king. Why then, do we pay so little attention to it?
From the Stone Age to the Space Age
The notion that one pet food can provide all the nutrition your companion animal will ever need over the course of its entire life is an absolute myth.
The key to nourishing your dog in the present can be found in understanding how dogs have eaten in the past. In general, canine ancestors evolved on a diet of unprocessed meats and whole grains. They thrived on high protein foods rich in healthy fats and a wide spectrum of nutrients. Often scavengers, dogs controlled what they ate and when, enjoying a variety of food choices.
In stark contrast, most of today’s commercial pet food is made from high carbohydrate cereal grains, not protein. The switch from quality protein to processed carbohydrates is a complete about-face. It’s no wonder veterinary clinics deal with so many cases of frequent illness, bowel disease, digestive problems and more.
It is now possible to feed your dog the healthier diet of the past, hassle free. Applying space-age technology to what has been proven throughout history to work best, K9-Rx bridges the gap between nutrition and peak health.
K9-Rx changes all the rules! Regardless of food choice, K9-Rx can make a dramatic difference in your dog’s appearance, performance and behavior. Such is the sad state of the American canine’s diet, that we routinely see significant improvements in seven days or less simply by using K9-Rx!
Now you and your dog can enjoy three major benefits unavailable from pet food alone:
1.) Using K9-Rx for Uncompromising Nutrition and Peak Performance. Amidst all the confusion is K9-Rx, the only way to ensure a daily delivery of the highest quality protein, amino acids, essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that may be deficient from, or could enhance your pet’s diet. Forget the fillers, rendered by-products, artificial flavors, and chemical sweeteners and preservatives. K9-Rx is loaded with nutrients not found in typical dog food, including support for: Muscular strength, energy, bones, teeth, mood, eyesight, joints, skin, coat, immunity and overall health.
2.) Using K9-Rx for Improved Diet Control. Years ago, feeding your pet was more about survival then anything else. Now it’s a chance to give your companion the opportunity to enjoy full and productive years. Simply providing the lowest cost food day after day falls far short of what you could accomplish by utilizing K9-Rx in your dog’s diet with the healthy, life sustaining nutrition of K9-Rx. For the first time ever, you do not have to rely exclusively on store-bought, processed food. K9-Rx gives you unprecedented control over the health of your most trusted friend.
3.) Using K9-Rx for Maximum Flexibility in Food Choices. Utilizing K9-Rx in your dog’s current source of nutrition, not changing it, is the best and easiest way to make a lasting improvement in his or her life. K9-Rx is not a participant in the pet food battle, but a source of support for all. As a protein-rich, nutrient dense supplement that can be added to any brand, any meal, K9-Rx gives you the flexibility to enhance whatever food you prefer. It also rewards your dog with a delicious taste treat that proves how much you love and care.
Don't take my word for it, This is what people who have given K9-Rx to their dogs say, and if you want to see more just go to our website - k9rx.com
There are millions of unwanted and discarded pets throughout the United States and the World. These poor animals have little or no chance for survival if not for the thousands of caring individuals who help rescue and take care of them. It is my hope that by getting this project funded we will be able to support local and national no kill shelters by donating a portion of all future sales and providing K9-Rx to help get these neglected pets healthy and find them caring homes.
If our project goal is reached, it will mean K9-Rx is in business! It will allow us the foundation to build future business and provide dog owners with the absolute best nutrition available for their pet - BAR NONE! I will utilize these funds mainly for inventory and the production of K9-Rx. This means purchasing the raw materials for blending and co-packing that will be necessary to fulfill our perk commitments. It will also help to satisfy a small amount of any future purchases. It will also allow me to be able to design and fine tune a customer friendly K9-Rx website as well as beginning to support the aforementioned no kill shelters.
Q. Why does my dog need K9-Rx?
A. Because proper nutrition plays an important role in the health and longevity of every family member, including your pet companion.
Q. Should I supplement my current dog food with K9-Rx?
A. Yes. K9-Rx is most often used to supplement regular dog food in order to provide additional high quality protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals, and important nutrients like creatine, glucosamine and chondroitin, MSM, lutein, L-carnitine and taurine.
Q. I feed my dog super premium dog food. Does he still need K9-Rx?
A. Don’t confuse "premium" with "complete." While price does serve as a general indicator of quality, super premium is made primarily the same way as regular dog food. Premium is better then regular, inexpensive foods, but still lacks the comprehensive nutritional profile, control and flexibility advantages afforded by K9-Rx.
Q. I know that adding protein to my own diet has tremendous benefits, but how much protein is too much for my dog?
A. Not all protein is the same. While traditional dog foods contain protein, it is generally of inferior quality, and difficult for your pet to digest and absorb. Therefore it takes a smaller amount of the high quality protein in K9-Rx to make a significant difference. Protein intake varies greatly between dog breeds and sizes, so it important to follow the feeding instructions provided.
Q. My current dog food includes "crude" protein and other ingredients. What does the term "crude" mean?
A. The term crude is a catch all phrase which means anything left on the slaughterhouse floor - or worse! With crude ingredients you never really know what is in your dogs food.
Q. If I feed my dog K9-Rx do I still feed him his regular food in the same way, and in the same amount?
A. K9-Rx is a complete and nutrient dense supplement to regular food. Add it to any meal. Make sure you follow the Feeding Guidelines provided.
Q. I have a healthy dog. Do I still need K9-Rx?
A. Your dog may be as healthy as he or she can be, given the food you currently serve. As we have seen, traditional dog foods often lack high quality protein, and are void of certain important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that canines have thrived on over the centuries. Make sure your dog gets the nutrition it needs and may currently be missing out on, with K9-Rx.
