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.

    We have been using this for about 4 months and I love what it is doing for my dogs. They are building great muscle on this product. Highly recommended for any working or sport dog.

    Use this as an extra energy boost for active performance dog 10+ years old. Does not upset his stomach or give him diarrhea, as many products like this can. He has multiple agility and herding titles, and is starting a new career in Rally Obedience. Keep large cannister in freezer for freshness and take out about a week's worth at a time.

    I have used vertex in past and currently for some of my dogs that are in training. I needed little more weight for one of my dogs as she is burning her calories fast when she is training for competition daily. This was a lifesaver. She is maintaining normal healthy weight and she looks amazing.

    I do agility with a Border Collie and he really depletes himself after a hard day of training and or at trials. After getting this Vertex and using it for 4 days Flash is a completely new dog after workouts. I even asked if there were steroids in it because it is so effective. Lifelong customer now!

    I can really tell an increase of enery and stamina not to mention added bulk to both my Shepherds but specifically my male who is currently eating everything in sight and just getting taller. This has really helped both my working dogs to gain better muscle tone and they are really excelling in their bitework, I swear they are even hitting the sleeve harder and they are moving faster. This is a great product and I can tell it is making a big difference in my dogs performance.

    works fast
    July 26, 2017
    I have 2 dogs, a working german shepherd in IPO and a border collie in agility. Border collie was taking long to recoup after hard workouts,,,,,2 days on Vertex and WOW it's pretty unbelievable how fast she recovers. Better overall muscles also. The german shepherd has 1 bad hip and for some reason shows no lameness on the Vertex. Excellent product! Nice to find a product in this day and age and actually works.

    Great for overall health and condition

    Great product for all of the K9's in our program at K9 Officers. They are all healthy, in peak condition with shiny, healthy coats. The K9's all love the taste.

    Bought this product on a recommendation from a fellow k9 handler. Well worth the money! Does what it says it will.

    Superb for building muscle!
    March 23, 2017
    My GSD has had very little muscle in his rear legs since he was a puppy. He is 3 years old now. After less than 2 weeks, he can jump in the car without help.

    CPN Vertex ROCKS
    December 3, 2015
    I am a musher with a small team of Siberian Huskies. We are extremely active, and I ask a lot of these dogs. The CPN Vertex is my GO TO supplement for working dogs on a daily basis, and to add to water for "baiting" pre exercise. This supplement is not only fantastic in nutrients and joint protection, but the dogs LOVE IT too.

    Best Supplement out there!
    July 2, 2014
    I mix the vertex to my retired dogs and current working dogs kibble with a little water for their breakfast and dinner. It was difficult for me to keep weight on them as they are all very active. Now I feed less kibble along with the vertex. The glucosamine/chondroitin is an added bonus and the ingredients are easy on their stomachs.I have tried just about every product there is on the market for my senior dogs joints and stiffness. Some products helped a little, but then I tried Vertex. This stuff works unbelievably well. Since I started all of my dogs on it I find that my younger dogs maintain a healthy weight, have softer coats, shed less and higher energy (not that they need more energy). My older dogs are less stiff and move around much easier as well! This is the best product!

    My dog loves it. She is in flyball and we use it after each race and after a hard training session.

    Best canine supplement out there...did'nt really want to write a review on it, so the competition does'nt try and use this product but I have to give it its props.
    Timing is everything when you give supplements...I offer it as a shake seaprate from his daily feed.

    Great Supplement
    June 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.

    Miracle product!

    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!

    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. :-)

    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.
