Spark Daily Nutritional Supplement caught my eye when I was searching the Internet for aquarium fish supplements. I quickly decided it wasn’t suitable for fish, but I was impressed by the exceptional quality and their choice of natural ingredients included in it.
Being educated in natural pet care, I’ve spotted many companies trying to take advantage of pet parents who are looking for natural supplements and remedies. The resulting products range from virtually useless for the targeted pet species, to alarmingly dangerous. By contrast, Spark has obviously done some serious research and seem determined to manufacture an excellent product. I decided to purchase a supply for testing. This review is not sponsored by the manufacturer.
Great First Impression
- Spark Daily Nutritional Supplement is produced in the US by Rocky & Bella.
- It is approved by the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC).
- The ingredients are processed at low temperatures, which makes a huge difference in the nutritional content and medicinal properties. Many products contain natural ingredients, but if high temperatures are used those ingredients might as well be sawdust.
- This supplement is formulated to provide a wide range of benefits to dogs from head to toe. Anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, immune support, cardiovascular system support, digestive system support, tissue regeneration, metabolic function, blood sugar stability, liver support, brain function, energy, muscular structure, bones & joints, and even detoxification.
- There is a full compliment of naturally-sourced vitamins and minerals.
- The natural nutrients in this pet supplement are complimented by plenty of antioxidants and omega 3.
- The product is enhanced with key ingredients that promote healthy canine digestion, including the prebiotic, Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), four probiotics, digestive enzymes and ginger root.
- This natural dog supplement contains several species of algae and seaweed. Experts recommend ingesting a mix of seaweeds/algae for a full spectrum of nutritional and medicinal benefits. Spark contains Spirulina, Blue-green Algae, Dulse and Bladderwrack.
- Besides seaweed and algae, Spark Daily Nutritional Supplement boasts several other superfoods and nutraceuticals, such as Chlorella, Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Alfalfa Juice, Parsley, Broccoli, Spinach, Beet Root, Carrot, Blueberry, Flaxseed, Turmeric, and just a touch of Cayenne fruit.
- Essential Amino Acids, including L-Arginine, L-Histadine, L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, L-Lysine, L-Methionine, L-Tryptophan and L-Valine.
- Fido-friendly fiber sources, namely Brown Rice and soluable Beta 1 3-D Glucan.
- Additions like Vitamin D3 and Lecithin from vegetable sources rounds out this exceptional supplement for dogs.
- But will they eat it? The freeze-dried liver and natural bacon flavor have that covered. It can be mixed into food or homemade pet treats.
Honestly, my first thought was I wish I could find this in human-grade for myself. The only negative point I would make is it’s promoted for dogs or cats but I don’t think it’s as suitable for our feline friends. It wouldn’t hurt cats and they may benefit from it to a certain degree, but it really isn’t formulated or balanced for an obligate carnivore. A little mixed seaweed/algae is more than enough vegetable-based supplement for cats, in my opinion. Cats can also benefit from a bit of other vegetation if there is a need (like pumpkin), but their digestive system limits absorption from anything that takes time to digest (such as fiber).
Putting it to the Test
I sent this pet supplement to a friend of mine, Dianna-Lee Lawson. Dianna-Lee is a breeder and trainer of champion herding dogs, so she is already familiar with optimal health and performance. She also volunteers as a trainer for her local shelter, which provided the opportunity to test Spark on dogs in serious need of the boost. Three full months later, she sent the following report.
As we predicted I didn’t notice a big change in my dogs because we already practice natural health. They had no problem eating Spark. The most significant change is there has been NO vomiting for the entire three months! In a house of 4 breeding dogs and their growing offspring it’s unheard of to go a month without cleaning up a mess!
It’s not a surprise that the shelter dogs showed significant improvement with the supplement. Their overall health, energy, healing and even their concentration improved. Other improvements could have been the supplements or just the better diet and conditions but I’m pretty sure Spark was responsible for a good part of it. Gleaming coats, bright eyes, and healthier dogs overall. I’m pretty sure of that because the shelter just feeds dogs and cats whatever is donated and it’s nothing special. We’re going to add Spark to our donation wish list!
Thanks for including us in your test! I hope we can do it again soon.
Thank YOU, Dianna-Lee, we truly appreciate your participation and greatly respect your opinion.
Spark isn’t cheap because all of those high quality ingredients are expensive to source, but you won’t need to use more than a generous sprinkle a few times/week to see the benefits. It’s always less expensive to buy quality than to throw money away on synthetic, over-processed dog supplements and you’ll save big on Vet bills.
