#7 Dr. Scott Treadway on formulating and detox

Dr. Scott Treadway has one over arching philosophy when it comes to formulating supplements: they will be most useful when they are wholly made from natural ingredients.

Scott is a friend and partner in our Vital Animal Health sister company that makes our supplement line. I invited him on this week to talk about our latest supplement, Vital Animal Detox.

We discuss the need for detox supplementation in pets and Scott goes into detail on why his formulation, based on highly purified zeolite and several synergistic herbs, is so effective in pulling toxins safely and surely out of your dog’s body. (Cat owners, stay tuned, he’s working on a cat version of VAD).

Our VAD was borne from Scott’s work with war veterans from the war in Iraq, who came back with radiation poisoning (and likely vaccinosis!) and the VA hospitals were just giving them pain killers. His original formula helped detox these soldiers and the idea for Vital Animal Detox came from this work as we began to talk together.

Join Dr. Treadway and I for an interesting journey into the world of natural detox.

    Any chance for the detox to come in larger jars? I have two 80lb Labs, and the small jar does not go very far when feeding two.

      Great idea, Peggy. I’ll be sure the team hears about your concern. We’re planning on different sizes for Canine Immune Complete, so I see no reason we couldn’t do the same for Vital Animal Detox.

    I am concerned that some of your ingredients for the Immune complete is synthetic and sourced from China ( in your own words). Can you comment on this?

      Sure, Gisela, this isn’t Dr. Scott’s formula. It was the best we could do when 4Life left the market suddenly and Canine Complete was no more. So, while this isn’t 100% natural, it was developed by Dr. Joe Ramaekers and gets fantastic results with dog’s immune systems. As we speak, we are winding this down and it will be replaced with Dr. Treadway’s upgrade. Stay tuned.

      Also, to my knowledge, there are zero Chinese ingredients in Canine Immune Complete.
