Designing Health The Missing Link Canine Formula is a dry granular powder, nitrogen flushed and vacuum-packed for freshness to protect its precious nutrients. It is a formulation for building and maintaining robust health in your canine friend. It is recommended that you use The Missing Link Canine Formula for puppies after weaning and dogs throughout their mature years.
In nature, animals consume foods that are whole, raw and fresh, while domestic animals generally have a diet of processed foods only. The Missing Link Canine Formula was developed to target the nutritional gap between what nature provides and what is available in commercial foods. Formulated with natural, quality whole foods and food concentrates, The Missing Link Canine Formula reintroduces unprocessed, nutrient-rich foods into your animal's diet.
Veterinarians and pet owners have added The Missing Link Canine Formula to commercial foods for many years to promote:
- Healthy Skin and Coat
- Sustained Energy Levels
- Healthy Digestive System
- Normal Weight
Dogs need balanced nutrition, just like us. Adding The Missing Link Canine Formula to their food ensures your companion receives vital nutrients such as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, dietary fiber, and phyto (plant) nutrients that promote optimal health and well-being. Dogs love the taste of The Missing Link . . . and you'll love that each formula contains only the highest-quality, natural ingredients.
An all-in-one superfood supplement - The Missing Link targets the nutritional gap between what nature provides and what's available in commercial foods.
- No fillers
- No preservatives
- No artificial colorings or flavors
The primary focus of The Missing Link Canine formula is the benefit that your dogs can derive from the omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. These products are not a pet food per se nor are they vitamin/mineral supplements. They are wonderful all-natural dietary supplements that are an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fiber as well as the essential fatty acids. These essential fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and 9) are necessary for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins. Along with the other nutrients in these supplements, they help increase energy and strongly support the digestive and the immune systems. As you are probably already aware, it is necessary that the digestive system be healthy, otherwise no matter what doses of vitamins, minerals, or medications are given, they will not be absorbed effectively. The enzymes in The Missing Link products are also naturally occurring. The combination of the all-natural ingredients in these formulas, including dietary fiber, works to clean the animal's digestive system and helps it to work more efficiently and effectively. To receive the maximum benefits from The Missing Link, it is recommended that you supplement your dog's daily diet with products in their original forms, and in the doses suggested on the package label.
The Designing Health Story
Dr. Robert M. Collett, founder of Designing Health, grew up in Colorado where his love of animals started at a very young age. His passion for animals and their health led him to study veterinary medicine at Colorado State University. After graduation, Dr. Collett moved to Southern California and over the next 40 plus years he developed one of the most successful practices in the Western States.
In the early 1990s, Dr. Collett began research into the degenerative disease processes observed in his patients. These loving companions had the same medical conditions and sufferings that humans struggle within their lifetime. His research uncovered a number of nutritional deficiencies caused by the highly processed modern pet food diet. He discovered modern pet foods were completely void of omega-3 fatty acid. The omega-6 fatty acid in pet foods was of such poor quality from processing that it did more harm than good. The quality of these important fatty acids can either promote health or cause it to deteriorate.
Further studies convinced Dr. Collett that there was a nutritional gap from what animals fed on in the wild, nutritionally dense, whole, raw and fresh foods, and the modern commercially processed pet foods. Dr. Collett developed and patented cold processing methods and supplement formulas for pets targeting this nutritional gap. He gave these formulations to his patients with health issues and recorded the remarkable results over the course of several months. Dr. Collett donated his time and expertise working with the city of Los Angeles animal shelters and zoos around the country to improve animal health for which he earned a number of commendations.
Word of these remarkable supplements spread like wildfire and The Missing Link Superfood Supplements were launched! Business grew fast at the Collett Veterinary Clinic because Dr. Collett was treating the root cause of major health concerns along with treating the symptoms.
Desigining Health incorporated in 1994 to manufacture and market The Missing Link line of pet supplements worldwide. The Missing Link Superfood Supplements are available for Birds, Dogs, Cats and Horses. The Missing Link Plus was added in 2001 to address joint health issues in senior animals. In 2009, the company launched a new Puppy Health Formula to promote and support healthy growth and development.
All Designing Health products are formulated using only the highest-quality human grade ingredients from whole foods and food concentrates. The patented, proprietary packaging, manufacturing and handling methods ensure the freshest, most stable delivery of Omega 3 fatty acids with all vital nutrients intact.
