Have you heard about the amazing health benefits of rosehips, and are wondering whether you can share those benefits with your best mate?

The good news is that rosehip powder is perfectly safe for dogs, and provides a wide range of mobility, coat, digestion and wellness benefits.

What is Rose Hip Powder for Dogs?

Rosehip powder is the finely ground form of small, nutrient-rich buds that grow on the rosehip bush. This powder is taken medicinally to boost vitamin and mineral, antioxidant and natural anti-inflammatory intake.

For dogs, rose hip powder can be sprinkled in with their regular food. No variation is needed to their existing routine, making it a simple but effective way to boost their mobility, coat-health and overall wellbeing.

Rosehips have been harvested and used in herbal medicine for centuries, thanks to their rich content of natural vitamin C, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.


What’s Different about Rose-Hip Vital Canine?

Rose-Hip Vital Canine contains the exclusive anti-inflammatory compound, GOPO®, making it the only rose hip powder for dogs with scientifically-proven joint and wellness benefits.

GOPO® is a galactolipid that’s isolated and then activated during our patented drying and manufacturing processes. GOPO inhibits the accumulation of excessive white blood cells at sites of joint pain and swelling, preventing them from spreading inflammation.

Rose-Hip Vital is also incredibly rich in natural vitamin C, making it a powerful antihistamine and antioxidant. Unlike the synthetic vitamin C used by many other brands on the market, our vitamin C is naturally-occurring and therefore highly bioavailable. High bioavailability ensures effective and efficient absorption and distribution of benefits.


How Will Rose-Hip Vital Canine Help my Dog?

Rose-Hip Vital is a powerful anti-inflammatory, meaning that your dog will benefit from improved joint health and greater flexibility, for as long as possible. Our exclusive anti-inflammatory compound, GOPO®, ensures they’re better able to repair from injury and illness, meaning fewer trips to the vet.

46mg of naturally-occurring vitamin C in every dose supercharges their immune response, helping to protect them against immune-mediated illnesses.

Antioxidants and antihistamines help to repair skin allergies and prevent future breakouts of allergic dermatitis.

Overwhelmingly, the most important benefit of Rose-Hip Vital Canine is that your dog will be in less pain. Many dogs suffer in silence from inflammatory joint discomfort. Adding a preventative anti-inflammatory supplement into their routine will ensure this doesn’t happen to your dog.

Being in less pain, they’ll be better rested, better behaved and more excited about being an active member of your family.


How Does it Work?

Nothing but pure and natural rosehips go into our canine Rose Hip Vital Powder. These rosehips are harvested from farms in Denmark using patent-protected drying and manufacturing processes, which isolate and activate GOPO®, our exclusive anti-inflammatory compound.

Our unique powder contains over 31 essential vitamins and minerals which are naturally cultivated within the rosehip berry, making them much more bioavailable than synthetic variations. These include iron, zinc, magnesium, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants like vitamins C and E, manganese and selenium.

These rich components work together to deliver essential nutrients, minimize inflammation and supercharge your dog’s immune response.


Is Canine Rosehip Powder Safe?  

Yes! Rose-Hip Vital is a 100% natural, plant-based powder that has been found to have no side effects or contraindications. Each of our powder ranges are packaged in a food-grade facility, making them perfectly safe for human consumption.

Rose-Hip Vital’s patented rosehip powder has even been included in over 30 clinical studies, including 9 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials.

Does Canine Rose Hip Vital Powder Interact with Other Medications?

No. Rose-Hip Vital has been found to have no contraindications, making it safe to take alongside existing medications.


What is the dosage of rose hip for dogs?

Your dog’s daily dose is calculated by their weight. We have a helpful chart on our website that breaks down how many scoops they’ll need each day, and even lets you know how much coverage you’ll get out of every tub. You can check that out here.

We recommend all new dogs starting on Rose-Hip Vital take a loading dose for the first three weeks. This is double their regular dose, and we’ve found it’s a great way to see results as soon as possible. Upping your dog’s daily dose to the loading dose is another trick to keep up your sleeve, for whenever you feel they could do with a bit of extra support. For example, when they’re recovering from an injury, or if they seem to be displaying signs of impaired mobility.

You can easily mix your Rose-Hip Vital powder in with your dog’s regular food, so there’s no need to change their regular routine. Please note that it’s important to mix Rose-Hip Vital in with something room temperature or cooler, because hot liquids or foods will undermine the effectiveness of the powder.


Tips for Sensitive Stomachs and Fussy Eaters

We’ve found that dogs love the taste of Rose-Hip Vital, but just in case your dog has a sensitive stomach, or is a fussy eater, we have a few tips.

To start with mix just a pinch of powder in with their regular food. Slowly build up this amount each day, gradually increasing until they reach the loading dose. From this point, you can officially begin the loading dose period of three weeks.
