Discovering Deer Velvet

James, founder of Imperial Pet Co., spent his childhood and teenage years caring for deer on his family farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. He will personally attest to how much he loves these animals and the careful process through which they create this product speaks to that.

When James’ older brother Sean broke his ankle and was given deer velvet powder, he learned to appreciate its healing effects on the body as he witnessed his brother halve his prescribed recovery time. James decided to try this natural product on his ageing golden retriever, Max, who had been suffering badly from arthritis. James tried Max on a deer velvet mix and the results were incredible! He tried the product on a number of other pets and had comparable results, hence the product concept was born.

What is Deer Velvet?

Male deer, known as stags, are the only mammal who can regenerate an appendage every year. These stags shed their antlers annually after mating season, which means Imperial Pet Co. can harvest deer velvet every year from the same deer without ever harming the animals. There is no other process like this in the world.

Deer velvet specifically refers to the soft, fresh new antler before it hardens and covers the growing bone and cartilage. It has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years.

After the antlers are harvested, they are ground down into a nutrient rich powder. These important nutrients form the building blocks of bones, joints and connective tissues.

Beneficial Ingredients of Deer Velvet

There are over 30 beneficial, naturally active ingredients found in deer velvet. Some of the
key ingredients include:

  • Glucosamine
    • Vital for building, maintaining and repairing joints, bone, ligaments, cartilage,
      joint fluid and tendons.
  • Chondroitin
    • A major component of cartilage, this ingredient is essential to maintain the
      structural integrity of tissue and regulates a diverse group of cellular
      activities for joint mobility.
  • IGF-1
    • This critical ingredient is what causes the antler to rapidly regrow each year,
      influencing cartilage growth. This unique property makes it a game changer
      in the fight against arthritis in senior dogs. IGF-1 aids in tissue growth,
      stimulates muscle growth, organ health, regenerates nerve tissue, maintains
      excellent blood sugar levels and aids in the absorption of Glucosamine and
      Chondroitin Sulphate. It is also responsible for faster recovery times after
      injuries and surgeries.
  • Collagen
    • The most important protein for connective tissue, collagen is also an
      essential protein component of bones, joints, tendons, cartilage and
      ligaments. Collagen offers vital formation for muscle elasticity and is
      essential in combining joint cartilage and repairing tissue damage.
  • Lipids
    • These molecules include hydrocarbons which form the building blocks of
      cells, including structure and function. Lipids are considered essential fatty
      acids and help boost energy, enhance cellular activity and contain a high
      amount of omega-3 and omega-6 – more vital ingredients for senior dogs
      fighting arthritis.
  • Amino Acids
    • Deer velvet includes all twenty standard amino acids, including all 8 essential
      amino acids, which support digestive health, enhance energy levels, support
      healthy sleep cycles and stimulate healthy growth of hair and nails.
  • Proteins
    • These are the main structural parts in cells and the proteins in deer velvet aid
      in tissue growth, muscle and tissue recovery, repair and support.
  • Calcium
    • This is a crucial ingredient in deer velvet as it contributes to healthy bone
      development, teeth maintenance, muscle building and function, a strong
      heart and healthy nervous system.

Deer Velvet also includes iron, copper, phosphorous, magnesium and cobalt. Several of these key ingredients are also vital in the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs. While this degenerative joint disease most often occurs in older dogs, it is estimated that 20% of dogs over the age of one suffer from this condition which causes stiffness, pain and decreased motion. The natural ingredients in deer antler velvet include vital proteins that support muscle tissue and cell repair, as well as several ingredients responsible for joint health and stronger bones. The ingredients help to improve your dog’s mobility and energy levels at any age.

In the form of an oral spray, these ingredients work together to support oral health and are beneficial for several conditions including stomatitis, gingivitis, tooth extractions, ulcers, sore gums, tartar control, bad breath and to help whiten and strengthen teeth.

While it is important to check with your veterinarian before starting any supplement for your dog, there are no known side effects for dogs taking deer antler velvet. Holistic veterinarians often recommend deer velvet.

Why Deer Velvet from New Zealand?

New Zealand is the largest producer of antler velvet in the world. The National Velveting Standards Body (NVSB) governs the antler velvet industry in New Zealand. What that means is that a licensed and specifically trained NVSB veterinarian oversees and monitors all antler processing. New Zealand deer velvet comes from ethically farmed sources where harvesting is done under local anesthesia to be deemed a humane practice.

Where Does Manuka Hydrosol Come From?

Manuka is another naturally sourced ingredient with roots exclusive to New Zealand.

Manuka is a tree native to this island country and is world renowned for its healing properties that are derived from over one hundred organic compounds.

Manuka hydrosol is produced through the process of steam distillation of the fresh branches and leaves from the manuka tree. Hydrosol is the water-soluble acid solution that remains after the steam distillation process, used to make essential oils. Hydrosols share many benefits and properties with essential oils, however, they contain more water which means they are much less concentrated and safer to use. Typically, less than 5% of the oil remains in the hydrosol solution. Hydrosols contain plant essences as well as the water-soluble plant matter that essential oils lack.

Health Benefits of Manuka

Manuka has multiple health benefits, including:

  • A natural anti-inflammatory, its antibacterial and antibiotic properties help to heal bites, cuts, support wound care, help to prevent and treat gingivitis and bacteria.
  • Soothes sunburns, cuts, acne, bites, wounds and various skin disorders.
  • Hydrates, soothes, balances and rejuvenates all skin types.
  • Helps to fight against skin irritations and infections.

For dogs, Manuka honey can help with common infections, including:

  • E. coli, a bacteria found in the lower intestine that can lead to infection.
  • Proteus mirabilis, a culprit in urinary tract infections in dogs.
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa, found in soil, water and decaying organic matter.
  • Salmonella, an infection found in dogs caused by Salmonella bacterium that can lead to disorders in dogs.
  • Oral bacteria, which leads to gingivitis (gum disease) and bad breath

Many oral health issues begin in the gut where 70-80% of immune cells are present.

Manuka honey can effectively boost your dog’s immune system, starting with theirdigestive system.

Manuka honey can help to maintain the balance of beneficial bacteria due to its natural prebiotic properties. Prebiotics help to support the probiotics, also known as the healthy bacteria, which are essential to your dog’s overall good health.

Manuka Healing Honey

Manuka honey is one of the most powerful kinds of honey in the world. Raw, unpasteurized honey contains hydrogen peroxide, which is a strong antiseptic, however, due to the honey production process of Manuka honey, it has longer lasting health benefits than other form of honey and holds the highest number of antibacterial properties. Manuka honey can fight against infections that are resistant to several conventional drugs.

Manuka honey is mono-floral honey, which means only bees in New Zealand and Australia that pollinate the small white flowers of the Manuka tree can make Manuka honey. Ancient settlers used the bark and leaves of this special tree in herbal teas and in Manuka oil, to help relieve stress and other psychological issues. They called Manuka honey “healing honey.” Manuka honey has four times the nutrient content of regular honey.

This Manuka hydrosol also contains propolis, which holds anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of microorganisms. It also contains natural ingredients that help keep your pets’ breath fresh and to fight viruses in the gut, including peppermint oil and cinnamon oil.

Cinnamon oil also helps to decrease inflammation and increases circulation in the body.
