Rose-Hip Vital® Canine 1.5kg Bucket

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 and clinically 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.

Dosage and Administration

Mix with food once daily. One level scoop (included) = 2.5 g

1.5kg Bucket
Body weight (kg)Loading daily dose (3 weeks)Maintenance daily doseFirst bottle (days)Maintenance (days)
Up to 15 kg2 scoops1 scoop579600
15 – 30 kg4 scoops2 scoops279300
Over 30 kg6 scoops3 scoops179200

Results are typically noticed after three weeks. If possible mix with food morning and night. Should your dog suffer from chronic inflammation it is safe to administer the loading dose ongoing. If you are using Rose-Hip Vital® Canine as a preventative there is no need to administer the loading dose.

For dogs weighing less than 7.5kg
Technically you could halve the dose for dogs up to 7.5kg and expect the same results. The recommendation would be to administer the full loading dose until results are noticed and then slowly reduce the dose until a balance between cost and effectiveness can be achieved..

NOTE: The more Rose-Hip Vital® Canine your dog takes, the more effective it will be. While it isn’t possible for your dog to overdose on Rose-Hip Vital® Canine, if your dog has a low tolerance for vitamin C any excess will be excreted. The appropriate dose might also depend on whether Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is being used as a treatment or for prevention.

Tips for fussy eaters
If you already know your dog is a fussy eater, the recommendation is to gradually introduce Rose-Hip Vital® Canine. Start with a small pinch of powder and slowly increase to the recommended dose over time. Other tips to get your fussy dog to eat Rose-Hip Vital® Canine include mixing it with wet food, mince, sardines, tuna, yoghurt, cottage cheese, milk, raw egg, butter or stock.

For dogs with a history of stomach sensitivity
Introduce Rose-Hip Vital® Canine very slowly. Start with a small pinch of powder and gradually increase once tolerance has been established.

NOTE: Part of the APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Association) approval process for Rose-Hip Vital® Canine included a 3 month tolerance study involving the administration of 5 x the recommended loading dose to 5 dogs for 3 months. At the conclusion of the study no adverse reactions or side-effects were detected.

Directions of Use

Use in pregnant and lactating animals is not recommended as safety has not been established.
