The best possible food you could ever want to feed your dog

Posted by Peter Muller - Bsc Health Science (Nutritionist) on 10th Mar 2013

If you love your K9 friend as much as I do, then Augustine Approved is a must for you.

Being a qualified Nutritionist I am fully aware of how important the correct nutrients are and that digestion and absorption of those nutrients are paramount for a healthy functional body wether it be human or K9.

I was extremely lucky to have rescued a 10-week-old Staffy cross Fox Terrier puppy who I named Yvi almost two years ago.

Knowing the importance of a healthy diet I was seeking the best possible food to feed Yvi, but was struggling with the nutritional profile of the majority of pet foods currently available on the market today. I found a few foods that I considered to be the best of an inadequate bunch and began to feed Yvi those foods.

Because Yvi has fare skin and a white coat, plus Staffy’s are prone to irritation she instantly began to develop severe allergy’s to these processed foods. No matter what topical solutions or changes with her diet I made she was constantly irritated by these foods, and I was becoming increasingly concerned.

I was talking to a friend of mine, not knowing she was already friends with Phivo and she told me about Agustine Approved. Given that I am a nutritionist and my passion is super foods I was thrilled to learn about Phivo’s journey, in producing what I think is the best possible food you could ever want to feed to your dog.

The ingredient profile in Augustine’s Super Boost is amazing. It reminds me of the ingredients I mix into my own smoothie’s for breakfast.

I wanted to steer completely away from any commercial dog foods of any sort and so Yvi’s journey eating Augustine Approved foods began.

I purchased Augustine’s SuperBoost and started by using the recipe on the Augustine Approved website for “Augustine’s SuperFood – Adult” and Yvi loved it. She would become so excited whilst I was preparing her food and she ate it with gusto.

Within days her coat became a lot shinier which is hard to see on a white coat, but hers glistened. She was so much more active and became a lot leaner. Her food allergies went away within days as well.

Since becoming aware of how AMAZING Augustine Approved products are, I have recommended them to my k9 loving friends who are all using the products, as well as making as many retailers aware of the amazing benefits of these long awaited products.

Well done Phivo and Augustine, you are a testament to the passion everybody should share with not just dogs but all animals, as they all deserve the same comforts as humans.

Make sure you visit the website, www.augustineapproved.com for all the amazing recipes and other products that can improve the life of your dog.

P.S given how remarkable these products are I would love to work with or become an ambassador for Augustine Approved.


Augustine's SuperBoost

For all the German Shepherd lovers out there...

Posted by Sue Reid & kao on 4th March 2013

Our 6 year old GSD Kao was shedding enormous amount of hair - up to 1/2 a shopping bag full a day after brushing plus a vacuum bag full. 

I couldn’t find solutions for GSD’s shedding anywhere.  I read things on websites like, "They only shed once a year for 365 days!”  

Just last Friday I saw an interesting piece on Better Home & Gardens hosted by Dr. Harry.  It was about a dog that had lost all its hair except on its head. They did a blood test that showed that the dog had an abnormal reading to do with the liver due to eating a beef only diet.  So Dr. Harry bought a heap of supplements to put in the food and the dog’s hair started to grow back eventually.

Kao is now only on to his second 440g tub of Augustine’s SuperBoost and we are excited to reveal the results so far… After finishing the first tub he is hardly shedding any hair at all - less than a handful comes off the brush and his droopy lip jowls have really firmed up. We think he loves the taste too, we can’t recommend it enough!

I tell everyone that comments on Kao's lovely coat how he got it :)

Thank you!


Augustine's SuperBoost

Giving it a try

Posted by Debra on 27th February 2013

I have two older Maltese who are quite fussy but seem happy to eat food to which Augustine's SuperBoost has been added to Whilst they are both quite healthy for their ages (15 & 12), I am looking forward to any improvements this product can make.


Augustine's SuperBoost

Augustine's SuperBoost is a fantastic product!

Posted by Lisa Magna on 26th February 2013

Hi Phivo,
I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I think that Augustine's SuperBoost is a fantastic product!

I won some as a prize from Tony Knight when I attended one of his talks in St Kilda but my daughter who is vegan and is studying naturopathy had been nagging me to get some for ages so she was very happy that I was at last going to be using it.

My dog Albie has skin allergies and I add the Superboost to his food to help keep his skin healthy. My foster dog Valentina was very underweight when she came to live with me. A few months of good food mixed with Augustine's SuperBoost meant that she went to her new home at a healthy weight with a beautifully shiny coat!

I have just ordered some more and it is now a very firm part of my dog's diet. Thanks for doing what you do and good luck for the future.


Augustine's SuperBoost

Truly a super food!

Our 5y.o Jack Russell Terrier "Cino" has experienced greater energy, enthusiasm and elevated moods since her diet has been supplemented with Augustine's SuperBoost combined with a drizzle of your Virgin Cold Pressed-Coconut Oil.


Augustine's SuperBoost

Hi there Phivo & Augustine

Posted by Susie and Chikita on 13th February 2013

Everything seems to be going well so far, I'm adding a spoon of your coconut oil to Augustine's SuperBoost and Chikita is very happy to eat it.

Thanks for all your support and good service. Oh yeah, I gave her a bath in the Calendula Flowers which you sent me, thanks, that went well too!

Augustine's SuperBoost = Super Healthy Dog!

Posted by richard on 12th February 2013

Thank you for such a great product, I have already noticed the energy difference my dog has only after a few days on Augustine's Super Boost.

More importantly knowing that he will enjoy a healthier and longer life is good to know as well.

All the best.


Augustine's SuperBoost

Thank you again for making such a wonderful product.

Hi Phivo and Augustine!

Just thought I would give you an update on Rocky, our once very itchy German Shepherd.

Since we started Rocky on Augustine's SuperBoost his allergies have completely disappeared. This time last year he had bald patches all over his body from where he'd ripped his hair out and the poor dog couldn't move without having to scratch. Now Rocky is so much happier, his hair is thick and healthy and he doesn't scratch at all anymore! It is just amazing to see the difference.

We also have a new addition to our family, a Golden Retriever puppy named Scully. After seeing what Augustine's SuperBoost did for Rocky we started giving it to Scully from the first day we got her. Although, unlike Rocky, there is obviously no dramatic 'before' and 'after' story, we know it is having a very positive influence on her health.

On a side note I would also like to add that your packaging/delivery/customer service has been outstanding.

Thank you again for making such a wonderful product.

Augustine's SuperBoost

We LOVE Augustine Approved!!

Rachael M. & Harper, 23rd Jan 2013

My dog Harper is a Border Collie x Cattle dog who is now five years old and has suffered skin problems and irritations from an early age. It seemed as though no matter what I did she would always scratch herself constantly, leaving red rashes and sometimes even small open cuts.

Working in the pet industry means that I have been fortunate enough to try multiple products that were recommended for relieving her symptoms of inflamed, irritated skin. I have tried a majority of the super-premium foods and trialled at least 10 different diets in the course of three years. I have also tried multiple shampoos, conditioners and treatments to relieve her itchiness, with some of them only providing temporary relief.

I began thinking about everything I put into my dogs body and what effects this had on the outside. I then decided to try Augustine's SuperBoost and it has been the best thing I have ever added to my dogs diet.

I add some to Harper's breakfast and dinner each day and her skin irritation is rarely a problem anymore. She has stopped scratching and her coat has never looked so shiny and healthy.

I have also tried the Augustine's SuperFood diet and it is definitely the diet for Harper as she has thrived on it. I am so happy I have found products that I believe in 100% and can recommend to customers at the store, truly knowing that is makes a wonderful difference to the health and wellbeing of dogs.

Thank you!

Thank you!

Buckley has been having Augustine's SuperBoost in his food for almost three weeks. In this time his coat has been much more glossier than it has been in a while, and his 'poop' is so much better!


Augustine's SuperBoost

Arthritis relief!

Prue, Carolyn and Nelson, 6th Jan 2013

Hi Phivo and Augustine!

Thank you for sending our family's 12 year old Golden Retriever Nelson the gift of Augustine's SuperBoost.

We have been adding it to Nelson's diet for a few weeks and can legitimately attest to the difference it has made in his level of comfort and happiness!

Nelson has arthritis in his hips largely due to old age. A course of cartrophin injections administered by our vet didn't seem to make a lot of difference until your magic powder came along!

About a month ago Nelson was pretty miserable, unable to even get up to say hello and that is unlike him (think major slobberfest all over you whenever you get home).

We are so happy with the difference it has made to Nelson! Whilst he is still a bit slow, he is so much brighter and more active! We even had a bit of a go at an old favourite - tug of war with his teddy!

Thank you for taking the time to send out Augustine's SuperBoost, you have really made a positive impact on our old boys quality of life!

Lots of love and doggy slobber,
Prue, Carolyn and Nelson!


Augustine's SuperBoost

Our aging dogs now have the energy of puppies again

Marnie G., 10th Nov 2012

I was recommended to try Augustine's SuperBoost by Animal Options (a holistic veterinary clinic) when they thought my nearly 12 and nearly 11 year old dogs weren't in top condition.

Initially I thought this was a bit cruel given their ages however after 1 week on Augustine's SuperBoost I began to notice a difference in my dogs. They have now been taking it for over 2 months and have new found energy much like that of puppies. I am astounded to say the least that dogs of their age can be so mischievious and playful. I am so happy and grateful that my "babies" will now have many more years of quality life to spend with my husband and I.

The only down side is that we don't feel like we have enough energy to keep up with them. Perhaps we should try Augustine's SuperBoost!


Augustine's SuperBoost

Quick and positive results

Sandra Wood, 7th Nov 2012

Scruffa is a 12 year old Westie x Maltese rescue dog that we have had for about 5 years. He came to us with a multitude of health complaints the worst being gum disease and rotten teeth. We had his teeth cleaned and the worst teeth removed but unfortunately he contracted endocarditis, which has lead to congestive heart failure.

After two days of Scruffa being on Augustine's SuperFood that I prepared using your recipes and Augustine's SuperBoost he was bright as a button! It's been a week now and I have noticed a remarkable difference in his coat and skin, with his fur being all soft and shiny and the hot spots behind his ears and head all but gone! He used to have a really strong yeasty smell around his head and ears but that isn't there any more either.

He has more awake time during the day and we have even managed to walk around the block on a lead a couple of times, which is something he hasn't done for the best part of this year.

I'm about to make another two weeks worth of Augustine's SuperFood now and the good news is he HE LOVES IT! I didn't have to transition him at all - he just wolfed it down.

Thank you so much for your concern with Scruff, he means everything to us and if this helps us hang on to him for a little longer and he can be well while he is here then we are very, very grateful to you!

Kindest thoughts from Scruff and us, to you and your pack :)


Augustine's SuperBoost

Great product

Cassie Brooks, 11th Oct 2012

My GSD has a lot of allergies, and in spring and summer his allergies get so bad that he is constantly ripping his hair out.

Up until now the only effective treatment has been steroids, but after adding Augustine's SuperBoost to his diet I've noticed a dramatic improvement. Within a week he stopped itching completely and his coat has never looked better!

Thank you so much for a great product!


Augustine's SuperBoost

SuperBoost

Steve, 10th Sep 2012

Tried SuperBoost after being told about it by a friend and have become a fan.

My two GSP's have been having SuperBoost mixed with the meals and the benefits were seen straight away.

They both now have shiney thick soft coats and seem happier overall.


Augustine's SuperBoost

A Big Thank You and hello to Augustine

S. Towler - Western Australia, 26th Aug 2012

Very much love Superboost and so do the dogs. Bee bee is fussy as to what she eats and i didn't think she would eat food with Augustine's SuperBoost in it but she ate it all so was pleased with that.

I can already see a difference in their coats they are a lot shinier and softer. I have not tried the shampoo and conditioner as yet but love the smell.


Augustine's SuperBoost

A true winner!

Fan's Beck & Chloe, 21st Aug 2012

I was surprised at how easy it was to add Augustine's SuperBoost to Chloe's food.

The first thing I noticed was a change in Chloe's behavior. Being a Maltese / Shih Tzu, she tends to be quite an anxious dog. It was almost as though I had given her a magic potion as she seems to be a lot more relaxed.

Another added bonus was the reduction of gas! And that is as much a relief to Chloe as it is to me haha.

Thank you Augustine Approved for producing such a wonderful supplement that is not only healthy for my dog but also makes a visible difference!


Augustine's SuperFood Starter Kits

Give Augustine big hugs and kisses from me and my baby!

Rebecca P., 18th Nov 2012

Thank you so much for making the recipes for Augustine's SuperFood. Today was Nuka's first day trying it and she devoured the lot. I've never seen her so excited about her food and knowing its so good for her makes me so happy that I'm doing the right thing by her!

I plan to just feed her Augustine's SuperFood for a few days to see how she goes. To also be able to use it as treats is great, I can't believe how fast she gulps it down!

By the way, 10 out of 5 stars for service! I ordered it early afternoon Thursday and I got it at 8am on the Friday.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, I honestly don't think I can thank you enough! Xxx
Boxer kisses from Nuka!
