I have been using Advanced Protection Formula (APF Pro) from Auburn Labs for quite some time, I have always really liked it and through the years, I have used it on and off. Early last year I started using it with all my dogs consistently and I saw an amazing difference in my dogs as soon as a week after I started feeding it.
For Try, at almost 13 years old, she started moving better, running around like a 4 year old puppy again. And not only that, her hair coat got shinier and her eyes brighter.
Nargles was the biggest difference, she has always had lots of anxiety, and tends to always be nervous. She also can be hyper and over reactive at agility trials, she would get so over the top that she couldn’t process anything while we were running.
After APF Pro for about 2 weeks she completely turned around, she calmed down, she became less nervous and anxious while traveling. Her performance in the ring improved ten fold, she could focus and lost much of her hyperactive tendencies.
What made me a firm believer in how much APF Pro helped Nargles was at an agility trial last summer. I forgot to bring an extra bottle with me, and I ran out of APF Pro on Saturday of the trial. During Friday and Saturday, Nargles was amazing. During Sunday she started getting overreactive and lost all focus. Once I got home and started her back on APF Pro, she was 100% focused and “On” for the next trial on the following weekend.
I am a huge believer of APF Pro and all four of my dogs get it every day, even my young dogs. During a trial weekend, I will usually give them a bit more, a dose in the morning and another at night.
So what is APF Pro?
APF Pro is the most advanced adaptogenic herbal formula for use in canine athletes. APF Pro combines the proven nutritional technology of the original APF (Advanced Protection Formula) with the muscle-building power of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E). 20E is a safe and natural plant extract found in Rhaponticum carthamoides. 20E is one of the most widely researched nutrients used by top athletes and body builders for its remarkable ability to safely increase lean muscle mass during strength training. None of the adverse effects of anabolic steroids are found with 20E.
APF Pro is unequalled in its protection of both the immune system and cellular metabolism. APF Pro gives your dog all the stress protection unique to our original formula, plus the added gastric health benefit of Aralia mandschurica. Veterinary researchers have found Aralia can have important protective benefits against stomach upset caused by stress.
APF Pro combines APF – the only natural herbal formula backed by university-level research- with advanced muscle-building and gastric health benefits to deliver the most effective nutritional formula to support your dog’s health and performance.
