Prevention Information

Certain breeds of dogs are predisposed to heart disease due to an inablility to create l-carnitine and taurine within the body.

It is strongly recommended that predisposed breeds start preventative supplementation of L-Carnitine and Taurine as early as possible.

Click here to learn more about the importance of supplementation.

The following dose is recommended for prevention of heart disease related to L-Carnitine and Taurine deficiency:

250 mg L-Carnitine per 10 pounds of body weight

125 mg Taurine per 10 pounds of body weight

Divided into two daily servings for best results.

We believe the most beneficial way for your pet to take L-Carnitine and Taurine powder is in a green/algae/superfood drink with Hemp or Flax oil. Divided into two daily doses. Alternately the powders can be sprinkled on or mixed in with your pets food.

It is strongly recommended to supplement dogs and cats that are fed a Vegetarian or Vegan diet as an extra precaution to avoid deficiency.
