Frequently asked questions


Where can I find reports of clinical trials testing the effectiveness of K9 Critical Care?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not permit us to provide results of treatment for specific disease or present testimonials in which specific diseases were cured or reversed. K9 Critical Care is not approved for the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of any disease.However, the effects of medicinal mushrooms as our key ingredients are well documented. An extensive collection of scholarly material on Coriolus Versicolor, can be found here.

Are there any adverse side effects to K9 Critical Care products?

K9 Critical Care products are natural food based supplements, not drugs, and therefore have no inherent toxicity. In rare cases, dogs may have an allergy to certain mushrooms. If your dog appears sick or vomits soon after consumption, please discontinue use.

My dog has a serious illness. What do you recommend?

We highly recommend that you consult with a veterinarian to discuss all treatment options, both conventional and naturalistic. Our K9 Critical Care power pack provides health benefits over the widest spectrum for the best possible results.

Should I order K9 Critical Care if my dog is not eating?

K9 Critical Care products are food-based supplements with medicinal properties; therefore they must be consumed to be effective. If your dog is not eating, we cannot recommend our products in good faith.However, it is important to know that fasting is an intuitive part of human and animal behavior and a form of instinctive wisdom.

Can I give the K9 Critical Care pack with chemotherapy, Prednisone (steroid to reduce inflammation) and Rimadyl (pain pill)?

Yes, K9 Critical Care is adjunct therapy with no side effects and will not interfere with other medicine.

Once my dog is feeling better, should I continue to use the supplements?

The active ingredients of the K9 Critical Care Power Pack are very potent, but there are no adverse effects. To maintain optimal health after an illness has passed, consider going to the K9 Daily Care which has a 25% potency.

How will I administer K9 Critical Care?

K9 Critical Care products are food-based supplements available in the form of chewable wafers. The wafers are liver flavored and taste like treats.

May I feed the supplements all at once or should I spread them out through the day?

You may feed all the supplements at once without causing harm or reducing their effectiveness.

How should I feed the supplements to my dog?

It is suggested that K9 Critical Care be given with food or as suggested by a veterinarian.

Why are Probiotix included in the K9 Critical Care Power Pack?

The basis for the canine immune system is the lower intestinal track. Healthy bacteria in the Probiotix supplement facilitate the absorption of minerals, regulate storage of body fat and increase T-cell production. K9 Probiotix is especially important to mitigate the harmful effects of antibiotics.

What is the difference with hot water extracts and ethyl alcohol extraction?

Hot water extracts are 50-80 times more potent than mycelium tinctures or mycelium powder. Our K9 Critical Care supplements are always prepared using the hot water extraction method. It is the only method in keeping with traditional medicine and validated by scientific research.

Hot water extracts are the only kind of mushroom supplements ever used or studied in the scientific research and the only method of preparation used in traditional herbal practice.

Other mushroom companies sell mushroom and/or mycelium tinctures preserved in alcohol (a.k.a. "cold water extracts"), or un-extracted mycelium powder (made by growing mushroom mycelium on sterilized rice). These supplemental forms have never been studied, have never been used in traditional herbal practice, and are a fraction of the potency as compared to hot water extracts.
