Where can I purchase Vivamune Health Chews?
Vivamune Health Chews are available for purchase directly from Avivagen Animal Health, via this website. Stay tuned to this site for our upcoming launch of our new range of Vivamune Health Supplements.
What are the ingredients?
Vivamune Health Chews are manufactured to the highest quality standards and contain no added wheat products. Each chew contains the following active ingredients:
- OxC-beta™ Compound
Inactive ingredients include:
Arabic Gum, an emulsifying and stabilizing agent commonly used in producing food products.
Maltodextrin, a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless. It is commonly used as a thickener or often times as filler or bulking agent. It has been used for many years with no adverse effects reported. Part of being NASC members is that we have extensive resources including working closely with other companies who that continue to develop safe and effective supplements for pets. All adverse events are reported to one database that is kept nationally so that companies like our’selves have access to this essential, extensive safety data. This allows us to be sure that we are taking steps to make quality and safe products for pets. Read more about how NASC- approved members’ products are monitored: www.nasc.cc
Brewer’s Yeast, Oat Flour, Oat Meal, Rye Flour, and Soy Lecithin. There are basically two categories of yeast: baker’s and brewer’s. If an animal is allergic to baker’s yeast that does not mean it is allergic to brewer’s yeast.
It is baker’s yeast that typically causes candidiasis or other yeast-related problems. Therefore an owner is advised that the pet must not have any yeast or products containing yeast, like breads, for example. Also typically recommended is the elimination of sugars, starches, and gluten because candida feeds off them.
Our formulas contain brewer’s yeast. However it is of the utmost importance that you check with your veterinarian on the specific allergy your pet has. Is it baker’s yeast or brewers yeast? Until that is ascertained, we do not recommend using any of our formulas that contain brewer’s yeast.
If an animal has allergies to soy or other grains listed they should avoid the product. Like almost all supplements, we cannot rule out every allergen to meet the needs of all pets with allergies.
