Frequently Asked Questions

Dosage

Q: How much should I give my pet?

A: The recommended maintenance dosage of NuVet PlusŪ for a pet that weighs less than 5 lbs. is a half wafer/serving daily. Pets from 5-100 lbs. require one wafer/serving per day, and dogs over 100 lbs. should be given two wafers/servings daily. For pets with health conditions, we typically recommend to initially increase the standard maintenance dosage listed on the bottle, since doing so should provide an extra boost to the immune system and speed the healing process. The initial loading dosage we recommend is dependent upon your pet's weight, as well as on the type and severity of the particular ailment he or she is experiencing. Please contact our Customer Service department to obtain specific dosage recommendations for pets with ailments.

Q: How many wafers do you feed a dog that is over 100 lbs?

A: For dogs over 100 lbs., we recommend a minimum of two wafers per day.

Q: Why can a 6 lb dog and 90 lb dog take the same dosage?

A: NuVet PlusŪ is not weight specific. Similar to human supplements, it supplies a recommend amount of nutrients if taken daily. The concept of one wafer per day is stating the recommended maintenance dosage for an average dog. A larger pet can take more than one per day. Any pet undergoing stress, extreme training, or experiencing health issues should increase the recommended dosage. NuVet PlusŪ is a bio-digestible supplement, which means that it is easily processed by your pet's digestive system. There is no threat of over supplementation.

Q: Is it okay to increase the maintenance dosage for more than a few weeks?

A: Yes. For pets with health conditions, we typically recommend to temporarily increase the standard maintenance dosage listed on the bottle until significant improvement is apparent, since doing so should provide an extra boost to the immune system and speed the healing process. The recommended initial loading dosage is dependent upon your pet's weight, as well as on the type and severity of the particular ailment he or she is experiencing. Please contact our Customer Service department to obtain specific dosage recommendations for pets with ailments.

Q: If the pet eats too many/whole bottle will they be ok? Is there a danger of overdose?

A: Your pet will be fine. Our products are natural (containing no synthetic ingredients) and water soluble, so there is no threat of over supplementing. This prevents overdose, since your dog or cat will digest the proper amount of each ingredient that is needed for their body weight (the equivalent of 1-2 wafers) and the rest will simply pass through their system. If they did eat to much, they may experience some diarrhea (especially if they have ingested the majority of a bottle), and it is advisable to provide them with some extra water and put them outside for the day. Please note that they will not experience negative side effects either short or long term from eating the entire bottle of wafers.
