The or Maintenance or Green Formula is our all around product for just about any age. Containing all of the ingredients in the Professional strength but at lower concentrations. The ingredients offer numerous benefits to immature animals that need proper nutrition to build a healthy muscular-skeletal system, experience improved response to vaccines, exhibit enhanced ability to fight off routine natural infections and perform at higher levels as an athlete. Mature or more geriatric patients benefit from less aches and pains from arthritis, improved vigor and enhanced surveillance for tumor cells later in life. The lactic acid producing probiotic blend offers a potent time-tested blend of beneficial bacteria known to help modulate the immune response in the intestinal tract.
The Maintenance/Green and Immune Chews formula are great for highly stressed puppies and adults dogs in shelters, boarding facilities or individuals on the show or performance/agility circuits. Our studies documenting cortisol reduction in stressed animals when using our patented products has broad practical applications when it comes to helping prevent stress related disease conditions.
This could be no more important than in animal shelter facilities. More normalized baseline cortisol levels ensures improved ability of the immune system to fight microbial invaders. We advise starting at risk individuals the day that they enter the shelter to help prevent complicated and expensive problems like Kennel Cough and stress diarrheas. In these environments we often start puppies on 1/2 to one of an Immune Chew daily for 2 weeks or 1/4 to 1/8 of the Maintenance/Green Immune Tab daily for 2 weeks. Early intervention is the cornerstone of prevention especially for infectious disease challenges.
Reproductive performance is also enhanced. Our studies in other species documented improved spermatogenesis and ovulation numbers. Also observed and reported by pet owners, breeders and veterinarians is the overall improved level of health in newborns and puppies when given these immune supplements early in their life. Building a strong immune system or as we like to say "Setting the Stages for Wellness" early equates to less health challenges during life and somewhat levels the playing field when it comes to genetic disease predisposition and lessening health care expenses.
Using Ramaekers Immune Formulas early can also help manage troublesome dental infections by keeping the level of immune surveillance in the oral cavity at an optimum level. Studies done on the human side showed in marked increase in salivary Immunoglobulin A (IgA). The immunoglobulin is essential in fighting gingival infections in the oral cavity. It is well known that some 70% to 80% of dogs have some degree of gingivitis. Immune supplements are an important part of any oral hygiene program. Aiding the body in fighting an established oral infection is very important. These supplements are safe and effective when used along with traditional veterinary care for advanced periodontitis.
The base formula of the Maintenance/Green is the same formula that was used in many of our field studies on pigs, goats and cattle showing a dramatically improved antibody production when vaccines were given along with this formula. In our rabies vaccine titer study in baby pigs written up by Dr. Jean Dodds, the average increase in serum antibody levels was 429% greater than the control animals! To our knowledge, no one else has ever produced such a dramatic immune response using either a drug or a natural agent. The importance of this is that this is the same response that will happen on a daily basis when our pets are challenged with natural infection at the day care, boarding kennels, groomers, dog shows, hunting in the field or when traveling.
Most of all, we like to stress that the Maintenance/Green Formula is all about the State of Wellness. It takes much less effort to maintain this state than it does to regain it after sickness develops. Providing the body with what it needs to function at an optimal level in a highly bio-available form is what Dr. Ramaekers focuses on in all of his patented formulas.
Our Veterinary Immune Chews were developed as a convenient and potent daily treat for puppies and toy breeds to support improved immune system response to vaccines when needed, provide the important probiotics to populate the gut and deliver the Wellness building effects from our patented medicinal mushroom/yeast cell wall blend. This is a product developed as a convenient single chew dose for all body sizes of young and healthy dogs . While not near the potency of our other Immune Formulas, this product is design to begin enabling the development of a balanced and vigilant immune system from a very young age. This is the first step in "Setting the Stage for Wellness".
