Vertex Canine Essentials is an excellent daily-use supplement that can increase energy, endurance, muscle growth, heat tolerance, and recovery time. It is specifically designed to provide nutritional support for working and performance dogs, but it is also a highly digestable and palatable source of calories for aging or convalescing dogs.

Vertex uses premium, predigested meat, whey, and egg proteins to ensure unequalled taste and nearly 100% digestibility and absorption. Combined with pharmaceutical-grade amino acids, you can expect better performance from your dog, improved stamina, and less physical discomfort after hard workouts. Vertex also uses powerful anti-oxidants (Vitamins C and E) to help protect your dog from free radicals that injure the body and can cause sickness or disease. This supplement also provides a food-grade complex carbohydrate source and contains pharmaceutical-grade glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and MSM.

Vertex is great for:
  • Canine athletes (agility, flyball, hunting, schutzhund, racing, weight pulling, etc.)
  • Pregnant or lactating females
  • Finicky eaters (add water to make Vertex into an irresistible gravy)
  • Dogs recovering from illness or surgery
  • Dogs that are hard to keep weight on
  • Dogs with low energy levels
  • Stud dogs and brood females

    100% satisfaction guaranteed with all CPN products.

    Miracle product! by K9 Recon01/11/2012

    I have tried just about every product there is on the market for my working dogs back pain. Some products helped a little or for a short period of time, but then I tried Vertex. I havent looked back since. This stuff works unbelievably well. It is highly palatable, I just mix it into her kibble with some water and she gobbles it up. Since I started her on this she has had no back pain and she gets up from laying down quickly like a puppy again. This stuff WORKS!

    Vertex by sportdog222 from California08/31/2010

    I am a k9 handler and bought the vertex on a recommendation from another dept. More energy, stamina and muscle gain quick. Also less stiffness after working. Very happy.

    vertex by search4u1663 from Illinois07/21/2011

    I do search and rescue for cook county illinois with my German shepherd and labrador. Both dogs were getting fatigued after 2-3 day searches and would take 3-5 days to recover. Especially in hot weather. I started them both on this product vertex and was absolutely amazed at how quickly it worked to keep my dogs stamina up and decreased recovery time to barely a day even after long deployments. Makes them eat more though. :-)

    Great Supplement by Dog mom from Washington DC06/24/2012

    I used this to add some supplements for my working dog. It was difficult for him to keep the weight on. After a thorough vet check for any medical/parasite issues, we added Vertex as a supplement to his food. It helped him with glycogen replacement after hours of searching. The glucosamine/chondroitin is an added bonus and the ingredients are easy on his stomach. I love that it is powder formula for travel and space.
