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.

Lime Tree buds (Tilia tomentosa)

Lime Tree buds have often been used as a sedative, and studies have shown that the tomentosa buds mimic the effects of GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid), the neurotransmitter in the brain that inhibits excitability and acts as an anxiolytic (a drug that reduces anxiety).

Organotherapy

Cortico-Hypothalamic Axis extract

This extract keeps an animal’s Autonomic Nervous System in balance, thereby regulating their emotional responses to the outside world as well as situational stress.

Hypothalamus: © St Albert Animal Clinic

Organotherapy

Hypothalamus extract

The Hypothalamus controls the body’s hormones. In technical terms, the hypothalamus releases a hormone known as the corticotropin-releasing hormone, which then stimulates the anterior pituitary to release the adrenocorticotropic hormone—which essentially determines how a canine responds to stress.
