Formula Origin

“Before moving from California to our New Mexico ranch, where we have lots of room for our dogs to run, we had to take them to the local dog park for exercise. Observing the dogs at the park I noticed many, regardless of breed, fell into three groups. There were the older dogs that didn’t run around and play much as they had obvious hip issues and joint pain in general. Then there were the dogs that were constantly stopping to scratch, licking their paws and chewing on themselves. You could see their red, irritated bellies, hot spots and bald patches. Still a third group were the nervous dogs, hiding behind their people. Like most community dog parks, before too long everyone knew each other, where they lived and what they did. Knowing about my bioformulas for people, pet parents came up to me asking if it would be okay to use Joint Health for their dog, or Anxiety Relief, Enviro Defense or Skin Health. I knew they were safe and they were just as effective for dogs as they were for people. When my circumstances finally allowed me to develop formulas specifically for dogs, it was a no brainer which ones to start with. That was the birth of Maxwell Pet Calm & Happy, Hip & Joint and Skin & Allergy.” Dr. Garber, D.C., Ph.D.

Black Currant buds (Ribes nigrum)

These buds act as a potent adrenal drainer (the adrenals sit just above the kidneys, which help regulate a dog’s metabolism and immune system, as well as the body’s stress response). They have long been used to treat a depleted nervous system, lack of energy and to treat various inflammatory diseases. Black Currants are probably the best anti-inflammatory. They are also an amazing adrenal stimulator, which strengthens the immune system, and they help decrease the cortisol levels in the body.

European Grapevine buds (Vitis vinifera):


European Grape Wine buds (Vitis vinifera)

European Grape Wine buds act on the deformative processes such as osteophyte formation (essentially bone spurs—the bony lumps that grow on the bones in the spine or around joints, especially when that bone or joint has been damaged) and allows for a fuller range of motion.

Mountain Pine buds (Pinus montana)

These buds act on bony articulations anywhere in a dog’s body, and have a regenerative effect on bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Mountain Pine buds also help relieve joint pain.

Wild Woodvine shoots (Ampelopsis weitchii

These shoots will regenerate cartilage and repair and reconstruct damaged joints. They also help stimulate flexibility and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

Calcaire de Versaille

This Litho makes calcium more available for assimilation and easier to absorb into the bones.

Quadratic Feldspar

Quadratic Feldspar acts effectively on most canine inflammatory processes that affect joints and related structures.

Cartilage: © Pet Club Dogs Lounge


Cartilage extract 

This tissue extract normalizes the cellular processes of hyaline-based connective tissue. The hyaline cartilage is the most common type of cartilage and lines the joints and caps at the ends of a dog’s bones. Alone, this cartilage has no direct blood supply and has limited capacity to repair itself, so this potentized extract helps repair the connective tissue in the bones and cartilage.

Parathyroid: © VCA Animal Hospitals


Parathyroid gland extract 

Parathyroid glands produce parathyroid hormones, which play a key role in the regulation of calcium levels in the blood. This Organotherapy is used for its ability to maintain blood levels of ionized calcium by stimulating the release of parathormone and calcitonin as needed by the body. This extract is what really moves calcium in and out of the bones for use in the body when it needs calcium for muscle contraction and functionality. If there’s not enough calcium in the blood, this extract releases a hormone that pulls it out of the bone.
