 Give your dog the greatest chance of success on Rose-Hip Vital Canine

Rose-Hip Vital Canine is a natural anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting supplement, packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Supercharging your dog’s diet with this wholly plant-based multivitamin will mean your dog is free to live like a puppy for longer, with better joint health, zest for life and improved overall wellbeing.

Here are some of our tips for getting started on our program with the best paw forward

Deciding on the Best Dosage

Always start your dog on our recommended loading dose. Our loading dose is a kickstarter to our program, and means you see the benefits of this powerhouse multivitamin much sooner. Rose-Hip Vital Canine is a wholly natural product, with no known side effects or contraindications, so there’s no risk of ‘overdosing’ your dog with too much product.

Check out this handy table on our website, but as a quick guide: dogs 15kgs and over should be on our middle loading dose of 4 scoops a day. Dogs 30kgs and over should be on a loading dose of 6 scoops a day.

Hot Top: If your dog tips the scales at the higher end of their weight bracket, it doesn’t hurt to start them on the higher dose. Remember, they’re at no risk of overdose and you can always scale them back.


Incorporating Rose-Hip Vital Canine Alongside Other Medications or Supplements

If you’re hoping to introduce Rose-Hip Vital Canine to use alongside an existing supplement or medication, or perhaps to replace one, it’s always best to do so gradually. We recommend using both products for a three-week period, and then assessing how your dog has responded. If you wish, slowly wean them off the original product after three weeks. Rose-Hip Vital Canine is perfectly safe to use alongside other medications, with no known side effects or contraindications.


Avoid Mixing With Hot Food & Liquids

Research has shown that mixing your Rose-Hip Vital Canine powder with hot food or hot liquid will undermine the effectiveness of the powder. Try to always mix your supplement with something cool to obtain the maximum benefit. Freezing your powder is perfectly safe, just allow it to thaw naturally.


Capsules vs. Powders for Dogs

While Rose-Hip Vital Canine does come in capsule form, we generally recommend our powders, as most families find it more convenient and also more economical. 1 scoop of powder equates to 3 Rose-Hip Vital Joint Health with GOPO 150 capsules. This means that a 20kg dog would need an initial loading dose of 12 capsules a day, and 6 capsules ongoing.

Both products have the same amazing health benefits, so proceed with whichever method you feel more comfortable with. All of our capsules are made with a bovine-gelatine casing.


For Your Fussy Eater

For fussy eaters, we recommend slowly introducing Rose-Hip Vital Canine into their diet, as little as a pinch or two with their food everyday. You can mix our powders with anything cool, so perhaps enticing them with some cooled gravy, an egg or even mince (with Rose-Hip Vital Canine carefully mixed in!) might be a good way to introduce them to the taste.

For a fussy eater, your loading dose won’t begin until you’ve worked them up to the full recommended daily dose.


For a Sensitive Stomach

While most dogs have no problem whoofing down their food mixed with a daily dose of Rose-Hip Vital Canine, occasionally we hear of dogs who have a low tolerance or a sensitive stomach. In this instance, slowly introduce our powder with just one or two pinches a day added to their usual meal, to gradually build up their tolerance. When you have reached their daily recommended dose, start counting their loading dose and consider this the start of the program.


For Dogs with Severe or Advanced Conditions

If you don’t see a change after the loading dose, or you’re only just starting to notice an improvement at the end of the three week period, it’s perfectly safe to continue with the loading dose for another few weeks before you reassess. Remember, you can’t overdose your dog on Rose-Hip Vital Canine.

For Larger Breeds Over 30kgs

Generally, larger breed dogs will see great results on the highest dose, but just in case you notice a slip backwards after dropping down to the maintenance dose, you can always keep your larger-breed dog on the loading dose indefinitely.


For Smaller Breeds Under 7.5kgs

If you have a tiny best friend, it’s important to remember that you can’t overdose your dog on Rose-Hip Vital Canine, so don’t be afraid to start them on our lowest recommended dose. If you feel like this is still too much, or you’re noticing excess powder in their excretions, we would recommend a loading dose of 1 scoop a day for the first 3 weeks, followed by a maintenance dose of 1/2 scoop a day ongoing.

Improve your dog’s joint health and wellbeing

Reduce inflammation, protect cartilage and boost immunity

Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is a plant-based anti-inflammatory and immune system support for your dog's joint health and general wellbeing. Made from Rosehips manufactured with patented processes, Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, protect cartilage, improve general health and improve performance.

Patented extraction and drying processes isolate and activate the compound GOPO® which has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. GOPO® works by stopping excess white blood cells from gathering around inflamed tissue, thereby helping to break the cycle of inflammation and protect cartilage. Rosehip products that do not contain GOPO® have not been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
