We are happy to report that we succeeded on all of our goals. To learn more about each of the incredible ingredients in each serving of Goodness Gravy, please click on the ingredients below.

Glucosamine HCI 600 mg

Glucosamine helps with joint health and is a natural way to ease pain and discomfort in a dog’s joints. If your dog is showing signs of slowness or you sense pain and discomfort, s/he may benefit from taking Glucosamine. Signs of joint pain and discomfort in your pet are:

  • Strained walking or running
  • Stumbling when walking
  • Slowness and lethargy
  • Seems painful climbing stairs
  • Laying down or rising appears strained

Glucosamine hydrochloride (HCL) is a natural substance found in the cartilage and joints of the body. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties and is completely safe for dog to take. It is especially helpful in relieving symptoms of osteoarthritic conditions in dogs.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) 400 mg

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a natural sulfur type compound that is derived from ocean kelp. Sulfur is naturally stored in nearly every cell of the body, with concentration in the muscles, bones, joints, hair, nails and skin. MSM is thought to contain antioxidant, joint healing, scar reducing, anti-inflammatory, pain reducing and cell rejuvenating properties. MSM is also considered to enhance the structural integrity of connective tissues and fortify the immune system’s natural barriers against allergens.

MSM has a vitamin-like normalizing function on dogs, helping various joint disorders. It is believed to thwart and treat dogs with arthritis. Sulfur deficiencies can result in joint pain, arthritis, skin problems, dull fur, immune system problems and gastro-intestinal problems. Though MSM cannot cure allergens, it helps reduce the symptoms by removing toxins from the body quickly.

MSM works well with vitamin C as each substance enhances each other. MSM helps the body revitalize its cells to keep a healthy level of cells within the body for proper function. MSM also promotes the repair of damaged skin because it improves tissue flexibility.

Chondroitin 100 mg

Chondroitin used for dogs is growing in popularity as a form of alternative therapy for “canine arthritis” and other progressive joint and bone disorders. Chondroitin is a supple material that occurs naturally in dogs and other animals. It is a key component of cartilage, which is the connective tissue that pads joints during movement.

Chondroitin levels often decline due to cartilage weakening caused by the natural aging process, disease or injury. Many animal care specialists believe Chondroitin supplements may support reduced cartilage loss that adds to the pain and inflammation of dog arthritis, hip dysplasia and other related conditions. Chondroitin is also thought to help create new cartilage in older or ill pets.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids* 600 mg

Omega-3 provides an important source of healthy fatty acids to improve your dog’s skin and coat. Omega-3 also reduces the effects of allergies, improves joint function and helps to control inflammation.

Omega-3 and other fatty acids are important to a healthy diet and are essential for your dog’s biological functions, particularly in the proper function of the immune system. Our Omega-3’s are polyunsaturated fats found in fish, the preferred source of Omega-3. Omega-3 fatty acids supplements are considered necessary because they cannot be created by your dog’s system and thus must be introduced through diet or supplements.

There are many benefits of adding omega-3 fatty acid to your dog’s diet. The benefits include the improvement and maintenance of numerous biological functions and as a treatment for health issues. Here is a list of the benefits:

  • Faster healing time and reduce skin infections
  • Eases symptoms of inflammatory diseases, including ulcerative colitis
  • Foils growth deformities and developmental problems in puppies
  • Mends a dry and dull skin and coat
  • Potential positive effects on the heart by reducing blood pressure
  • Preserves healthy eye sight development
  • Increases joint health
  • Reduces the effects of some cancers
  • May prevent and treat allergies and atopy by reducing the effects of histamines
  • Inhibits recurring ear infections
  • Lessens the effects of arthritis

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)* 100 mg

Omega-3 fatty acids to look for include Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) which is derived from fish sources such as salmon, the preferred fatty acid source. Goodness Gravy contains (EPA) from fish. We do not use Omega-3 ALA which is derived from flaxseed, pumpkin seed and soybean oil and considered less effective, particularly in dogs. Many commercially available dog foods are filled with carbohydrates, preservatives and fillers and do not contain Omega-3 and other essential nutrients.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)* 72 mg

Omega-3 fatty acids to look for include Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) which is derived from fish sources such as salmon, the preferred fatty acid source. Goodness Gravy contains (DHA) from fish. We do not use Omega-3 ALA which is derived from flaxseed, pumpkin seed and soybean oil and considered less effective, particularly in dogs. Many commercially available dog foods are filled with carbohydrates, preservatives and fillers and do not contain Omega-3 and other essential nutrients.

Omega-6* 30 mg

Omega-6 fatty acids are excellent for conditions such as allergies, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, high blood pressure and heart disease. These fatty acids keep the skin hydrated and create a protective barrier against allergens. Studies have shown that many dogs with dry skin have a deficiency in Linoleic acid. Omega-6 fatty acids contain Linoleic acid.

Omega-6 essential fatty acid helps with water retention in the skin’s cellular tissue. Water within the cells is able to go into the deepest layers of the skin and remain there longer causing well moisturized, healthy skin.

Lecithin* 225 mg

Lecithin occurs naturally in a dog’s body and is essential for the well-being of all cells, preventing health problems. Supplemental Lecithin provides immune system support and can help when the dog is recovering after a disease or a surgery.

Lecithin is also known to stimulate memory and learning abilities. Lecithin may be administered as a supplement for dogs that are starting or have begun training. Studies have shown that Lecithin improves memory and orientation and should be beneficial when the dog is learning commands. Lecithin may also reduce cholesterol and can help with dogs that have high cholesterol.

Vitamin A (as Beta-Carotene and Palmitate 850 IU

Vitamin A like most other vitamins is essential for proper metabolism in your dog’s body. Vitamins are present in several foods like meats, vegetables and oils. Since they are present in small quantities and are sometimes diminished during the cooking process, it becomes necessary to supplement your dog’s diet with other sources of vitamins. Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin and is stored in the fat cells (lipocytes) in your dog’s body. A Vitamin A deficiency can lead to skin and coat conditions, poor growth, a dull coat and night blindness.

Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol 50 IU

Vitamin D is stored in the fatty tissues of the body and the liver. Vitamin D helps promote bone health as well as muscle and nerve control. It also helps regulate calcium in the kidneys and to keep the calcium level throughout your dog’s entire body at a consistent level.

Vitamin E (as DI-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate) 15 IU

Vitamin E is believed to help circulation, slow down the aging process, prevent cataracts, stimulate the immune system, and help with spinal problems. As your dog ages, all of these issues start to surface. Giving your dog Vitamin E may help prevent these problems from occurring.

Beta-Carotene 0.45 mg

When your dog is given beta-carotene is absorbed by the intestine and then travels to the liver. In the liver, it is combined with fats in the diet, converted to vitamin A, and stored until it is required by the body. When necessary, it is released through the bloodstream traveling to the retina of the eye.

Beta-carotene also works as an antioxidant, helping to prevent disease and infection. Its role as a forerunner of vitamin A makes it significant for healthy skin and hair coat, normal bone development, reproductive health, general eye health, and cancer prevention.

Biotin 15 mcg

Biotin is a vitamin from the B complex, but is more popularly known as Vitamin H. Biotin is recommended for your dog to treat allergic reactions and of conditions that affect the skin. The efficiency of this vitamin when treating allergic reaction is known to be higher if it used in combination with fatty acids.

Biotin (Vitamin H) is not only effective in the treatment of allergic reactions and skin conditions. It also seems to play an important role in digestion, growth and muscle formation.

Folic Acid 10 mcg

Folic acid is also known as Vitamin B9. It is an important vitamin essential for cell replication and growth.

Niacin (as Niacinamide) 7.5 mg

Niacin is a B-vitamin that is essential for dogs. Niacin helps with skin and coat health and is important for a healthy nervous system and skin. It also helps with the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Niacin also supports a healthy gastrointestinal system.

Pantothenic Acid (as Calcium D-Pantothenate) 7.5 mg

Panthoteic Acid is another important vitamin and helps in the transformation of carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy. The lack of Panthotenic Acid can lead to loss of hair, stomach problems, diarrhea and abnormal graying of hair.

Vitamin B1 (as Thiamin HCL) 7.5 mg

Vitamin B1 is also referred to as thiamin. Vitamin B1 will help your pet metabolize fats and proteins, and aids conversion of food and/or carbohydrates into fuel. The fuel creates the energy that runs their body. This critical vitamin is also essential for healthy skin, hair eyes, and the liver.

Vitamin B1 is also extremely helpful assisting the nervous system to function properly as well as helping your dog cope with stressful situations as it improves the immune system.

Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin) 3 mcg

Folic acid and Vitamin B12 are closely related. Bone marrow can’t produce red blood cells without these vitamins. Their deficiency can lead to a severe anemia.

Vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin) 5 mg

Riboflavin is also known as Vitamin B2. Riboflavin is responsible for the muscle strength, normal growth of the bones the hair. A dog with riboflavin deficiency will have an impaired growth, vision problems, limb weakness, fainting and may even be at a higher risk of developing a heart attack.

Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) 5 mg

Pyridoxine, or Vitamin B6, is essential in the function of the amino acids. The lack of pyridoxine can cause skin lesions, tooth cavities, anemia, poor growth or kidney stones.

Glucose levels, the function of red blood cells, your dog’s immunity, hormones and nervous system are all affected by the level of B6 in a dog’s body.

Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 25 mg

Giving your dog Vitamin C will help some of the problems associated with diabetes. It helps bolster low tissue levels, prevents cataracts, protects kidneys, normalizes sorbitol levels, controls blood sugar and increases insulin efficacy.

Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory properties that have improved the conditions of dog’s suffering from a sports injury or joint and muscle pain associated with old age.

Vitamin K1 (as Phyonadione) 1 mcg

Vitamin K1 is important because it ensures that the blood coagulates properly. When vitamin K1 is in deficit, your dog can develop a bleeding disorder, as his blood will no longer coagulate normally.

Copper (as Copper Gluconate) 10 mcg

Copper is necessary for a number of body processes in your dog. It helps in the formation of bone and connective tissue and collagen. It also aids in the absorption of iron and the development and maturation of red blood cells. Copper participates in the synthesis of melanin, which ultimately gives your pet his or her hair color.

Iodine (as Potassium Iodide) 40 mcg

While only a minor metal, Iodine plays a significant role in your pet’s digestive system. It also helps with the synthesis of thyroid hormones that regulate your pet’s metabolism.

Iron (as Ferrous Fumarate) 3 mg

Your dog needs only trace amounts of Iron, placing it in the category of a trace mineral. However, Iron is still vital for bodily function, helping provide oxygen to both organs and muscles.

Manganese (as Manganese Sulfate) 0.125 mg

Manganese helps ensure quality bone and cartilage. It also helps with the mitochondria function or the cell’s energy source. Manganese is essential for the correct use of protein and carbohydrate by the body.

Selenium (as Sodium Selenite) 5 mcg

Similar to other antioxidants, Selenium helps fight against oxidative stress, like aging, pollution, cancer, or inflammatory diseases. In your dog’s body, this trace mineral acts in tandem with vitamin E to protect cell membranes from free radicals.

Zinc (as Zinc Sulfate) 1.5 mg

Zinc is an essential mineral that should be present in your dog’s healthy diet. Zinc deficiency causes the condition called Zinc responsive dermatosis. Certain dog breeds are more predisposed to this disease.

Zinc also controls certain physiological processes and many aspects of the immune system. Some metabolic functions, including the thyroid metabolism, can’t function properly without zinc.

Choline (as Choline Bitartrate) 7 mg

Choline is a vitamin supplement that dogs require in small amounts. Choline is accountable for a large number of different body organs and functions in your dog. It helps the liver and brain in their day to day functions. It aids the liver in producing bile and processing different vitamins and minerals that are in your dog’s system. Choline helps the brain in general cognitive functions.

Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) 50 mg

Calcium intake is particularly important during the growth and puppy stages. Nearly all of the body’s calcium is stored in your dog’s bones. Calcium it is responsible for making a strong skeletal structure and supports the transfer of information between cells and sensory impulses.

Taurine 125 mg

Taurine is an important supplement for your dog’s cardio vascular health. Studies have shown that a Taurine deficiency may be responsible for heart disease in dogs.

Inulin (Prebiotic) 30 mg

Inulin is primarily used as a prebiotic to aid in your dog’s digestion. Inulin is a low calorie carbohydrate and fiber source. Inulin can increase calcium absorption and is characterized as a prebiotic, which is a substance that feeds the healthy bacteria in your dog’s intestinal system
