What is The Missing Link for Dogs?

It's no secret . . . Good health starts from within! Missing Links products are formulated from whole foods and food concentrates to deliver nutrients that are bio-active, the way Mother Nature made them. Missing Links proprietary, patented cold-processing method ensures the freshest delivery of precious omega 3 fatty acids in combination with a broad spectrum of natural fiber, flax lignans and phyto (plant) nutrients. We use ingredients that are nutrient rich to address the problems of marginal or empty calories and "missing" nutrients that often are characteristic of companion animal diets. These nutrients synergistically provide support to the digestive, nervous, and immune systems. The result is sustained energy, healthy skin and coat, and much more.
For: Dogs
 
Benefits:
Omega 3 also helps with your pet’s heart, skin and hair, decreasing shedding
With healthy joints, your pet can enjoy a long, healthy, and active life
May help a weak immune system, so your pet will be sick less
Whole foods encourage better digestion, including less diarrhea
Can be sprinkled on food
No reported side effects
All natural human edible quality
Addresses “empty” calories
Easy to give

How it works:
Simply sprinkle and mix The Missing Link granular powder over your pet’s normal food on a daily basis. Your dog or cat may need to be introduced to the supplement gradually, due to its high fiber content. The Missing Link’s formula includes a whole slew of natural food nutrition, which is a great way to ensure that your pet’s meals are complete. The Missing Link reintroduces unprocessed, nutrient rich foods into your dog’s diet that are missing in many dog foods.

Cautions:
After opening, store in the refrigerator and use within 90 days.

Excellent Product I have no scientific proof about how this product works, but my Westie lived to be 17.5 years old taking this every day. All of our other Westies never made it past 15. While care and medications have gotten much better too, I believe that taking this every day made a huge difference. He actually didn't start even acting old until he was beyond 15 and our 9 year old Cairns are still very active. A great benefit of this is that it really helps their skin and hair. 02/25/2013
Only product that has worked for my dog! I have a horribly allergic bull mastiff and with this product I have seen the best results! He no longer breaks out in hives or gets acne on his chin! He also started having adverse effects from his allergies; the skin on his belly went from bright and pink to a dark brown (no he wasn't dirty, his skin literally got darker) and bumpy...three weeks later his belly is going back to being pink!!! 06/13/2012
Amazing product! I have a beautiful black lab, Sasha who is four years old. Her shedding was driving me crazy. Being something of a neat freak it seems like I spent most of my time sweeping up black hair all over my house. I had tried everything, special brushes, vitamin supplements, you name it nothing helped. While doing research on shedding I came across an article on Missing Link and figured I had nothing to lose. It did take a while to start working (about 6 weeks) but the change has been amazing. Her coat is healthy and shiny and best of all the shedding has decreased dramatically. Highly recommend this product. 09/22/2010
Awesome stuff! I foster Yorkshire Terriers and often get strays or puppy mill survivors with bad skin conditions, mange, etc., from poor nutrition. As soon as they arrive in my home I start giving them food mixed with Missing Link. For their size, the recommended amount is 1 tsp per day but you should start slowly so I go with 1/4 tsp for the first couple of days, 1/2 for a couple of days, 3/4 tsp and so on. A female I recently fostered came to our rescue right after treatment for sarcoptic mange. Her skin was waxy and scaly and she had developed a yeast infection. With the help of the right medications and Missing Link supplement, her hair was growing out in no time and she was adopted two weeks after arriving in foster care! 08/02/2010
Love this product! My terrier mix was itching and scratching very frequently, after 5 days of eating "The Missing Link" as part of his daily diet, the itching and scratching are OVER! His furr feels softer and healthier, plus he loves the taste of this awesome supplement. I highly recommend this product, you won't be dissapointed. 07/26/2010

After starting to add this to my dog's food, how many days/weeks can I expect to see results? My dog has a thin coat and the vet recommended this to help with that so when can I expect her to grow more hair?

Follow Up to my question: I bought Thuja at a health supplement store and gave it to our dog in his water.
Very good results - over half of his wart/bumps are gone all over his back!
Thuja is an excellent product for treating this.
