A look at the world’s only three-part, Integrated Nutrition System for dogs battling cancer, and how your practice can become a partner.
Jeff Sutherland became involved in canine nutrition when his dog of 14 years, Shadow, began exhibiting severe digestive reactions to commercial pet food at age 5. He researched and successfully developed a diet that got to the root of Shadow’s health challenges and permanently relieved her symptoms. Motivated to develop his findings further, Jeff began conferring with a team of PhD scientists and veterinarians with backgrounds in veterinary oncology, nutrition, biochemistry and endocrinology. They reached the conclusion that an integrated and evidence-based approach to nutrition is the key to supporting dogs with critical care diagnoses, including the most feared diagnosis of all – cancer.
Along with his team, Jeff oversaw the development of the Canine Biologics Integrated Nutrition System — the only nutrition system designed to support dogs fighting cancer. This unique three-part system (see sidebar) combines, food, salmon oil and a proprietary supplement mix comprised of plant extracts, amino acids, vitamins and minerals chosen specifically for their evidence-based, positive impacts on dogs’ digestive, immune, integumentary and other physiologic systems.
“Our products are based on over 60 peer-reviewed studies and clinical trials, and our human-grade ingredients are carefully integrated to achieve an optimal outcome,” says Jeff. “To reduce oxidation and maintain peak potency of all three Integrated Nutrition System components, they are separately packaged and home delivered where they’re combined at the time of feeding.” The system’s components are packaged in state-of-the-art, personalized portions which ensure delivery to homes at peak ingredient potency and easy preparation by the pet parent.
Because of the careful formulation and balance of the diet and its ability to support canine health, this unique system is ideal for dogs fighting cancer, as well as other dogs in need of additional nutritional support. An online Nutrition Plan Builder lets pet parents input their dog’s information so that an individual diet can be created for them, and then a 30-day supply – shipped once or on a subscription-basis – is delivered directly to their door. “They can cancel their subscription plan at any time, for any reason, and receive a full refund for any unopened food, oil or supplements returned to Canine Biologics,” says Jeff.
Canine cancer patients can still run, play and love – but the more natural support we can offer them, the better. The Canine Biologics Veterinary Partner Program offers practicing veterinarians the opportunity to offer evidence-based nutritional support to dogs fighting cancer. Partnering practices can earn a substantial referral fee for every client purchase, including all subscription transactions. Visit caninebiologics.com/pages/veterinary-partner to learn more.
