I recd my order today. Simon weighs 100 lbs and finished his 6th chemo session yesterday. Instructions say to give 3 for stable dogs and 7 for immunocompromised dogs,,, the price is $1.90 a day for 3 wafers and $3.80 for 6 a day.  what are others giving ?  which qty should I be feeding and does an osteo dog ever drop down to the low dose of  3 per day?

Clyde is about 65 pounds and I give him 2-4 tablets a day. When he first had his surgery and probably for the first year, I was really careful to give him the max dosage. I’m a little more lax now; he usually gets 2 a day.

I see the  company also promotes armor  up. Is anyone using this in addition to the immunity plus? Should I get this ad well? Or spend money elsewhere for better value?

Hey Luke, why did you log-in as a guest? Did you lose your password? Let us know if you need help.

To answer your question….You don’t need both products. Armor-Up is an immune support supplement made by K9 Medicinals, whereas K9 Immunity is an immune support supplement made by Aloha Medicinals. They are both great products but the advantage to Armor-Up is that it is a tasty powder that gets sprinkled on food, making it much easier to give than pills or chews. It’s also certified organic, which K9 Immunity is not I believe.

Sorry you were having issues. Looks like things are going OK now.

K9 Medicinals sells K9 Immunity , but they do not manufacture the product. They do, however, manufacture Armor-Up themselves. The products do the same thing, but the ingredients and the costs are slightly different as you can see on the K9 Medicinals website.

They are both about equal in terms of how they provide immune system support. I’d say whatever is in your budget and whatever Simon likes best is the way to go. If he starts turning his nose up at one, you can always switch back to the other.
