This supplement promotes healthy skin and coats for dogs and cats. It also relieves scratchy, dry skin.

In case you don't know, I have suffered on-and-off with skin allergies for some time. My first vet said that I was probably allergic to grass since the itchy rash was always on my paws (and also on my tummy and legs). He told Ma to keep me out of the grass.
Huh?!? Um, I'm a dog and the grass is where I do my 'business'...
never mind that the grass is where I do a lot of my lizard and bunny hunting!

Amy sent me the Skin supplement and she was nice enough to toss in the Repair supplement as well.
Repair helps boost the body's immune response and relieves aches, pains and inflammation. It is good for injury recovery and supports the body during illness.
Dog, we were wrong.
Almost immediately the Skin relieved the itching. Ma noticed that I was scratching and chewing a lot less. We followed the directions and sprayed it on my rash as well as on my food and water (since it has no odor, I eat it right up).

Surprised at the efficacy, I asked Amy about the "secret ingredient" in the supplements. She got all Kung Fu Panda on me, told me "there IS no secret ingredient" and said:
Amy: All the supplements are a combination of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc in filtered water with electrolytes, such as Vitamin A, B, C, D, E and oxygen added. The supplements are put on the food, water, and body so that they that they are simultaneously being absorbed by the skin, nasal passages, digestive tract, and body tissues which gets results faster. I believe they are effective because they are diluted like a homeopathic remedy so the body can use them right away and not have to wait for the digestive tract to break down a pill.
So, I'm thinking Amy must be some super-duper vet or chemist, right?! Wrong again. Then how does a Civil Engineer and Holistic Chiropractor begin developing pet supplements?
Amy: It was for the love of my dog! Actually, the first supplement I made was for my best friend’s dog who was in kidney failure. They live 2000 miles away and I wanted to do something so I made him a supplement to help with pain. The dog died before I could mail the supplement, so I gave it to my dog. In less than 24 hours my dog’s arthritis had eased up so much that he was doing laps around my house for 45 minutes at a time. He was obviously feeling a lot better, so I started making supplements for other conditions. The supplements are all human grade and I take them all too.
Wow! When you first started developing these supplements for your dog, did you know right away that they would work?
Amy: I knew they would work if I created the right formula because of his profoundly positive reaction to the pain relief supplement that I first gave him. This is where the civil engineering and chiropractic comes in. I have a good understanding of anatomy, physiology, chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics that I apply when formulating the supplements. Instead of trying to fix one problem I try to help the entire body recover so the immune system is better prepared if the illness or injury occurs again.
What are the most popular supplements?
Amy: Happy is very popular with rescued pets, pets who have lost family members and are grieving, and pets who suffer separation anxiety. A lot of animals have skin and allergy issues, so the Skin and Clear formulas are popular for those issues. Calm is popular for puppies and kittens with more energy than the owner knows what to do with! Calm is very relaxing and relieves stress too. One of my favorite supplements is Repair. It can be used for anything from skin issues, to illness and injury. For chronic problems, Repair works great when paired with other supplements such as Skin. It’s the extra boost the pet needs to get back to normal.
Where can pet parents purchase these supplements?
Amy: The supplements can be purchased on Amazon. (By the way, that Amazon link will take you to all the supplements!)
Amazon and each one targets a specific issue. Skin is the supplement of the month for May which means there is a 15% discount (for those of you with skin itchies like me!).
