Rf1 canine supplement directions?

Discussion in 'Health & Nutrition' started by Banditdogs, Aug 10, 2018.

  1. Does anyone have the recomended feed dosage for RF1? The bag that I ordered was mislabeled and I don't have an old bag to look at.

    1 scoop for maintenance, 2 scoops for keep. Should be given within half an hour after workout with feed. Make sure you cool the dog down. You will start to see recovery time drop pretty quickly.

    Thanks for replying but I had them just send a picture of the label. FYI.. it's not just 1 scoop or two scoops for all dogs, it's actually different portions depending on how much the dog weighs.

    Read the label and buy those ingredients separately. Use a chicken broth to mix it in......fat content goes up some, moisture goes up some, and it will be way cheaper.

    I haven’t used it, but based on the ingredients stuff appears to be on a level with high end, high protein/fat no grain kibble, like Orijen tundra formula for example - except even more pricey per pound. Last time I looked at RF-1 online, it was from the Tom Garner enterprise I believe. The product seems more directed now toward bully fanciers. Just observations, no criticism of this product or the company which offers it. IMO raw meat plus raw unpasteurized goat’s milk would be just at least as nutritious, processed faster, and less costly.

    Dosage in my experience depends on the individual dog, even if similar in size. Less is better than what’s suggested when introducing a new product to a dog’s system. I don’t feed anything for at least a 1/2 hour after a workout, after a dog is cooled and settled. Less stress on the digestive system.

    This is true. A well balanced feed program will eliminate the need for most supplementation.

    Supplementation should be reserved for a dog under a heavy, heavy work load. A fit dog with a well balanced diet can perform extraordinarily without anything extra.

    If there is a medical need for a supplement then by all means the dog should get that as needed.

    I was just rattling off the top my head to get him started, i never use recommended dosage on anything really and ive always thought its a good idea to come in low with new substances no matter what they are, it's dependent on each dog and weight is just a good starting point. I go by performance and what i see before, during and after work.

    Just make sure you don't keep feeding this after you're done with whatever you are doing. It can be bad on their Kidneys.
