The Missing Link Superfood Supplements: Helping Our Pets Live Healthier Happy Lives!

Us pups have sure been enjoyin’ the cooler weather! We get to go out for what my Lady calls ‘exercise time’ a couple of times a day. And, boy howdy, do we make the most of it! We rip and roar and burn off all that energy we stored up nappin in the house! My Lady says exercise is very important for us, but we just think it’s fun WOOF! To be honest with ya, my Lady is a stickler ’bout what is good for us, kinda like this new stuff we’ve been gettin’ in our food called The Missing Link.

The Missing Link Superfood Supplements, Helping Our Pets Live Healthier Happy Lives

The Missing Link Superfood Supplements help keep our coats all shiny and lookin’ good, while keepin’ our bones and joints healthy. I’m s’posin’ I can’t much argue with that! I gotta stay strong to keep up with them brothers and sisters of mine and, of course, what girl don’t wanna look purdy and shiny? I also love when folks tell me my golden eyes sure are purdy WOOF! Oh, ‘scuse me. Got a little caught up in myself there! Let me round up my Lady so she can tell ya all about our new superfood supplements!

Here’s what my Lady says about The Missing Link Superfood Supplements

As most of you already know, my pups mean the world to me. My life revolves around them, literally! I have always done everything within my power to keep them at their healthiest. For starters, their food! Good nutritional dog food is THE number one necessity! Nutritional food lays the ground work for the rest of their health. After saying that, most of you know, I also do a rotational dog food diet. Why? Simply because I don’t trust any certain dog food to give them all the nutritional requirements they may need. Well, as it turns out, most dog foods do not give them enough of all nutrients needed to be their absolute healthiest! That is where superfood supplements like these from The Missing Link come into play!

After saying that, I will also say that I do not give supplements lightly! Before agreeing to start them on The Missing Link Superfood Supplements for pets, I did run the ingredient list past my vet. Some may say I am paranoid, but for me it is called peace of mind. I want to know that what I give my furbabies is good for them and that there is a purpose for giving it to them. I don’t like giving my dogs something just because it is the latest fad to come around. Perhaps I am a bit paranoid, but when it comes to my furbabies health, I am very on guard!

However, when I heard of The Missing Link, I was very impressed and with a go-ahead from my vet, I decided to try them out. Let me introduce you to The Missing Link and then we will look at the formulas the pack has been enjoying and why.

About The Missing Link

The Missing Link Superfood Supplements are available for Birds, Dogs, Cats, Horses and Small Animals. The Missing Link with glucosamine was added in 2001 to address joint health issues in senior animals. In 2009, the company launched a new Puppy Health Formula to promote and support healthy growth and development.

All Designing Health products are formulated using only premium quality ingredients from whole foods and food concentrates. The patented, proprietary packaging, manufacturing and handling methods ensure the freshest, most stable delivery of Omega 3 fatty acids with all vital nutrients intact.

The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Skin and Coat

The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Skin & Coat Formula

When it comes to my dog’s skin and coats, I need all the help I can get! I have a couple with severe skin allergies and, of course, I want their coats to be as healthy as possible. While I feed them the best foods possible, sometimes that just isn’t enough. The only way I can explain it is to compare it to us humans. We may eat healthy, and do all the right things, but sometimes we need to supplement with vitamins and minerals to get what we need. That is where The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Skin & Coat formula comes in for our pets. It targets the nutritional gap between what nature provides and what is available in commercial foods. I also like that they use a cold-processing method. This ensures the freshest delivery of precious Omega 3 fatty acids.

The Ultimate Canine Skin & Coat not only covers their skin and coats, but also helps give them a healthy immune system, digestive system, and sustained energy levels. In addition, it helps support soft tissue, muscle, tendon and ligament function. In other words, it works WITH their normal nutrition by giving them essential Omega 3 & 6 and Omega fatty acids.

The Ultimate Canine Skin & Coat Formula combines:

  • Balanced Omega 3 & 6 to maintain healthy skin & coat.
  • Omega fatty acids to support intercellular health, for absorption of fat soluble vitamins, and to maintain energy levels.
  • Dietary fiber to promote a healthy digestive system.
  • Phyto (plant) nutrients to support general health and nutrition.

Miss Molly is a happy healthy girl, with visible shiny coat and clear bright eyes. My goal in using The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Skin & Coat is to keep her that way – from her skin and coat to her general health and energy level. Did I really just say that? These pups sometimes have too much amazing energy! But honestly, I would not trade it for the world!

The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Hip and Joint

The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Hip & Joint Formula

When it comes to hips and joints, I could probably go on and on! Most folks know that with certain breeds such as German Shepherds, Labs, Rotteilers, etc, hip and joint problems are almost a given. Unfortunately, my pack is made up of all those breeds, or mixes thereof. And, true to word, we are living the life of canine arthritis and joint problems with a few of them.

My senior girl, Sallie age 12, has severe arthritis symptoms, as you have heard me speak of in the past. And, Seager is experiencing back hip pain also. He is overweight, which doesn’t help the matter. On an opposite note, my young 4-year old Ozzy has knee joint pain. From the best we have gathered from our vet, he grew so fast that he had something similar to growing pains when he was younger. These days, he no longer has the pains that caused him to cry out as a young puppy, but he has arthritis in his knees.

I was extremely excited to try The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Hip & Joint formula supplement, especially for the ailing members of my pack! This formula is designed to help with joints and hips! It aids in flexibility and helps with soft tissue, muscle, tendon and ligament function. It targets the nutritional gap between what nature provides and what is available in commercial foods. Take a look at the chart below:

The Ultimate Canine Hip & Joint Formula combines:

  • Glucosamine to support healthy joints and flexibility.
  • Omega fatty acids to support intercellular health, for absorption of fat soluble vitamins, and to maintain energy levels.
  • Dietary fiber to promote a healthy digestive system.
  • Phyto (plant) nutrients to support general health and nutrition.

The Missing Link Benefits Senior pets!

Sallie, the senior girl, loves hanging out on the porch on sunny afternoons to watch as the other pups play. She can’t join in the play any longer and, unfortunately, she can no longer navigate the steps. If you notice, in the background, we have had a special ramp built her.  Sallie is also the main reason I am so excited about The Missing Link Ultimate Canine Hip & Joint formula. Relieving even a bit of my sweet girl’s pain is a high priority to me. The hip and joint formula is great for senior pets!

Benefits Younger Pets too!

As you can see, Ozzy can run and play with the best of them. My pups are very active and play very hard every day! With dogs this size, it is important they get to run off steam and stay active. However, knowing they are all prone to hip and joint problems, I want to be proactive in helping them and have been very comfortable in adding The Missing Link superfood supplements into their daily regimen. Even at ages 4-5-6 years old, it benefits them in getting ahead of the known hip and joint problems for their breeds that may come. It also gives them nutrients that may not be available in their regular kibble!

Our Thoughts on The Missing Link Superfood Supplements for Pets

My pack has only been on the supplement powder a short time, however I feel good about it. They have accepted it well. I mix it with their supper each day and no has complained yet. I did start slowly because of the fiber content – very important. You don’t want to upset their tummies! I was also a bit concerned they may refuse their food. However, no such problems on that front! I also need to mention that once you open The Missing Line Superfood Supplements package, it will need to be refrigerated.

I am anxious to see how it goes further down the road. With supplements and powders, it takes a few weeks to see real improvement or changes. However, I don’t see a problem, as it provides so many nutritional benefits, how can you go wrong?! I also need to note that supplement powders will not cure a problem. However, it will help alleviate symptoms and improve their quality of life. I am happy, the pups are happy, and for Miss Molly and the pack – we say all paws up here!

One of our dogs does take glucosamine and the other does have some allergies that I'm working on. I saw the 'skin and coat' supplements before but never really gave it much thought. I thought they wouldn't do much... after readying this..I never really thought about how omegas and other goodies we even need could be in those supplements. Seems silly but I literally never even looked at the ingredients because I figured it was a marketing trend. I'll look more into this now!

Love these woofs?
