Dosage and Administration

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

Body weight (kg)Loading daily dose (3 weeks)Maintenance daily doseFirst bottle (days)Maintenance (days)
Up to 15 kg2 scoops1 scoop179200
15 – 30 kg4 scoops2 scoops79100
Over 30 kg6 scoops3 scoops4667

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.

Watch Now - A Rose-Hip Vital Canine Success Story

Summer's Story by Bernard Toh

When Summer was diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia at 1 year old, our hearts dropped upon hearing the news from the vet. Though we had read up more and were mentally prepared, it was still sad and we had to learn to accept it. Slowly, with advice and research on the net, we sent Summer for weekly therapy swims at Canine Wellness to strengthen his leg muscles and slowly we saw his improvement.

To maintain the quality of life for Summer, he was on monthly Cartefen jabs, weekly swims at Sun Pegamart and daily glucosamine. As we were always on the lookout for the best for Summer, we chanced upon Rose-Hip Vital® Canine when we were at Pet Asia in May 2015. With an open mind to try anything for Summer, we bought 2 big tubs of Rose-Hip Vital® Canine 500g Powder home and started him on daily loading dosage.

Since then, we have not looked back. Summer’s monthly Cartefen jabs is now reduced to bi-annually and is fully on Rose-Hip Vital® Canine Powder daily. We see him now enjoying the quality of life that we wanted him to have and hope he continues to do so!
