What is Old Friend? Old Friend is the ultimate daily herbal tonic for the senior dog. As our canines advance in years, we do our best to adapt and meet their needs at every stage of life. We spend considerable time and energy to make sure they have healthy food, exercise and stimulation. Above all, we tend to their health needs and to their comfort.

Promotes a stronger immune system and joint mobility in older dogs

Optimal health for senior dogs:

  • Helps maintain good cognitive ability
  • Good energy levels
  • Supports joint mobility
  • Strong immune system support
  • 2 oz (59 ml) is a 1-month supply for most dogs (up to 50 lbs)

Old Friend was designed by a holistic veterinarian to support and maintain great health for your dog as he or she ages. Common to the aging process are the degradation of connective tissue and joints, cardiovascular, adrenal, liver, pancreatic and cognitive function. All animals, even those having lived healthy and vibrant lives, can experience changes in these common areas. In general, energy, movement or vitality may decline, either slightly or broadly. By supporting key body systems and decreasing general inflammation, your pet has a huge advantage to live life to the fullest.

    What is Old Friend Used For?
    With youth comes the innate qualities of vigor, enthusiasm and spark. As our canine friends age, their energy and sharpness may lose the edge they used to have.

    Old Friend can be administered alone or added to an existing health regime. Old Friend provides an additional boost, suited to the needs of dogs in their golden years. If your dog could use support in these areas, consider this product for your old friend:

    - Better energy levels
    - Joint mobility, jumping & running
    - Strong immune system
    - Mental sharpness & good cognitive function
    - Stable blood sugar levels
    - Healthy liver

    Why Choose Old Friend for Your Canine?
    - Certified Organic and Selectively Sourced: This formula is entirely prepared from herbs that are: organically grown, cultivated in the U.S., or selectively imported from trusted sources.
    - Full Spectrum Extract: The full biochemical spectrum of the herbs is preserved to ensure the potency of the extract. All raw materials are tested for identification and purity.
    - Every Batch Tested: Every batch of Old Friend is tested to ensure the highest quality and potency. Every single batch.

    Manufactured in the United States.

    Old Friend is designed to make a noticeable difference in the vitality of the senior canine. It nourishes the body systems that can weaken with age. While some of the ingredients take longer to work on health issues such as joint stiffness, your pet will most likely feel an overall sense of wellbeing within the first one to two weeks of taking this product. Energy levels increase and stabilize. Mental alertness is heightened, allowing better focus and ability to play and have fun.

    Old Friend is Formulated With:

    - Alfalfa herb (Medicago sativa): This nutrient-dense herb provides they body with calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, trace minerals, beta carotene, Vitamin B6, C, D and E. By weight, it contains high levels of Vitamin K. It is rich in enzymes that help to break down starch, protein and fat. Alfalfa helps support connective tissue and collagen and helps maintain respiratory health and normal insulin production.
    - Guggul gum (Commiphora mukul): Found in India and Africa, Guggul has a long history of medicinal application in Ayurveda, used for the support of joint mobility, normal cardiovascular function and blood lipid levels.
    - Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum): A truly versatile and sought after botanical, red Reishi (or Ling Zhi) helps maintain good energy, without being stimulating. It assists the body with stress, supports the immune system and healthy liver and vascular function. Of particular note, Reishi helps maintain good mental focus and concentration. Reishi contains antioxidant compounds that assist with scavenging free radicals.
    - Astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceous): Extracts of Astragalus have been studied in relation to positive affects on the immune system and the cellular changes of the aging process. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus has also become a fairly common herb in the west for its adaptogenic (supports stress and immune responses) properties.
    - American Ginseng root (Panax quinquefolium): Not to be mistaken for the hotter, more stimulating Asian Ginseng varieties, American Ginseng's properties have shown promising clinical results for helping with neurocognitive function and memory. Panaxosides are a group of active constituents available in all of the Ginseng species, said to increase the body's "qi" or vital energy.
    - Eleuthero root (Eleutherococcus senticosus): Eleuthero is a woody shrub native to parts of Asia and southeastern Russia. It has extensive history in traditional medicine as an immune protector, supporting cognitive function and maintaining balanced energy levels in stressful or physically demanding situations.
    - Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale): Dandelion's uses extend from supporting joint health to helping maintain a healthy liver and pancreas. Research has been conducted that shows promising results for inflammation, normal blood sugar levels, healthy digestion (including liver/gallbladder function) and maintaining appetite.
    - Ginger rhizome (Zingiber officinale): This species of Ginger contains an oleoresin and is often compounded with other herbs for digestive, circulatory and inflammatory conditions. Studies show its effectiveness for nausea and vomiting from various causes. It is used sparingly in this formulation to prevent an overly spicy taste.

    About Pet Wellbeing

    Pet Wellbeing was founded in 2001. Our goal? To provide pet owners with options and good information. When faced with decisions about the best health strategies for our beloved pets, we all want what is best for our furry companions. We want the assurance that we will make our pets feel better, not worse; additionally, we don't want to throw away our money on something that doesn't work.

    To fulfill our vision, our on-staff, holistic veterinarians develop products using data from multiple streams: time-honored, traditional uses of herbs and foods, current scientific research, hands-on, clinical experience between veterinarians and their dog or cat patients.

    Our products and formulas are continually under review. Formulas are analyzed individually, in turn. During a review, our Board of Advisors team integrates information in a "think tank" fashion, looking at the latest studies & research, and real-life results of the dogs and cats within their veterinary practices. Ideas are shared and improvements are discussed and tested. This is our commitment to putting leading-edge science and concrete results into our products.

    Amazing product! It literally resolved the kidney disease in our senior Yorkie and saved our other senior pup, Frankie! Frankie has severe mitral valve disease, was on Max doses of cardiac medications at levels toxic to his kidneys. He had several trips to icu before we tried this product! Within 1 week, we saw a dramatic improvement and few weeks were able to decrease his cardiac medication doses!

    Kitty is feeling better, thank you!
    Our cat has been on this product for 5 weeks, no sign of asthma or breathing problems since coming off steroids (from vet). He is tolerating it well and likes the taste when mixed in with his soft food. So far so good, we will be ordering again. His energy and personality have returned.

    Hi my girl was diagnosed with adrenal tumors last Jan. 2020 She's 15. I started giving her both Life Gold and Adrenal care. Didn't think she would still be here with us. It's over a year now and she is. She's eating, drinking and all bodily functions are working perfectly. Not in any pain, I'm grateful for this product I would recommend these to everyone.

    Thank you for saving my baby.
    My 13 years old Yorkshire has pancreatitis since 2 years and he had flare up every 2 weeks and now he is perfect. He hasn’t been sick since 3 months now. The last time he was sick I taught of having him putting to sleep because he was so sick. Thank you Pet Wellbeing you save my old boy.

    My little dog Timothy was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He was having a really hard time breathing and he had no energy. After just 3 days he was breathing easier. It is not a cure but just making his life easier makes me feel like he at least has a better quality of life.
