Nutriflex South Africa. Holistic Pet Health For Dogs Cats And Horses

Hector Chief Inspiration Officer
Sharon Milani Director, SmartPack PTY Ltd

Meet Hector, the furry inspiration and guiding light behind NutriFlex – your pet's passport to premium holistic health care. Hector, our remarkable mini schnauzer, enjoyed nearly 18 orbits around the sun and left an indelible mark on our journey.

My story begins with a move to South Africa in 2004, accompanied by my beloved Giant Schnauzer, Riley, and a school of 36 Koi Carp. My passion for animals and wildlife photography fueled this life-changing adventure. I vividly recall the flight to Cape Town, where the reassuring sounds of Riley's barking from the cargo hold filled my heart with joy.

Tragically, only two weeks into our new life, and despite the best efforts of hospitalisation Riley's life was cut short due to a severe reaction and seizures in response to mandatory vaccinations. Riley was just two years old, and his loss left our dream shattered.

As I grieved for Riley and tended to my recovering Koi Carp, fate introduced me to Hector from Roodewall Kennels. Hector, despite his early dismissal from puppy school for apparently being "untrainable," quickly won the hearts of everyone with his larger-than-life personality.

I made a promise to Hector – to provide him with the best of everything and to hope for a lifetime together.

Recognising the pivotal role that nutrition plays in longevity, I embarked on a journey to ensure Hector's well-being. Despite a rocky start, Hector continued to lead an active and joyful life, relishing runs on his favourite beach and dipping his face into the waves.

Shortly before his twelfth birthday, Hector began relentlessly chewing on his feet. Further investigations revealed advanced age-related joint issues, with several vertebrae already fused. Despite our vet's best efforts, Hector's condition worsened, leading to a dire situation where he could barely lift his head. It was then suggested that, as an "older" dog, it might be time to say our goodbyes and let him cross the rainbow bridge.

However, I refused to accept this fate without seeking a second opinion. Hector was hospitalised, receiving a vital drip and undergoing an emergency procedure to clear bladder stones that had formed a dangerous blockage. Miraculously, within just 24 hours, Hector made an incredible recovery, and it was clear that he had more life left to live.

As a small local company, we have already witnessed incredible transformations in people suffering from chronic joint issues using pure collagen powder for humans. This sparked our light bulb moment, and the idea for NutriFlex was born. Hector began receiving a daily scoop of NutriFlex Advanced, which brought an end to his stiffness, crying, and struggles to get up. Best of all, it eliminated the need for frequent veterinary visits.

Six more glorious years were ours with Hector, and he was on the cusp of his 18th orbit around the sun. Despite his selective hearing, we continued to relish our early morning beach walks.

At SmartPack, our research and development team dedicated months to perfecting NutriFlex Advanced Collagen for Dogs, collaborating with animal nutritionists and holistic practitioners. We went through the rigorous process of obtaining approval and registration with DAFF (Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries – South Africa).

Today, we are immensely proud to share NutriFlex with the world. It's a South African first – a next-generation natural anti-ageing, collagen "bone broth" protein powder joint care that animals adore.

Hector's daily scoop of NutriFlex Advanced Complex (the orange tub) was specifically developed for senior animals and those grappling with joint and mobility issues. His brother from another mother, Ralph, a mini schnauzer just nine months old, enjoys NutriFlex Maintenance Complex (the green tub) to promote daily vitality and offset the effects of ageing, potentially averting joint and mobility issues often associated with an animal's golden years.

NutriFlex products are backed by science and are trusted by veterinarians. It's our way of helping your cherished furry friend stay active for life, for longer.

Join us in this journey towards better pet health and well-being.

NutriFlex – where love, passion, and knowledge converge to enhance your pet's life.

What makes NutriFlex Joint Health Supplements for Pets different?

1. Anti-ageing collagen replenishment AND triple-action joint support

NutriFlex products are vet-recommended natural alternative joint health supplements for dogs, cats and horses. Formulated with human-grade ingredients sourced from nature, they are a great way to keep dogs, cats, horses and ponies active for life without the damaging side effects associated with traditional medications.

2. Eliminates protein deficiencies

NutriFlex sets itself apart from other joint-support and mobility supplements with its high protein content (up to 90%) and essential amino acids. As a crucial component of healthy and balanced nutrition, protein and amino acids are vital in maintaining your animal companions' body function, health, and immunity. Lack of adequate protein can lead to premature ageing, weakness, fatigue, and health issues. Ensure your best furry friend receives the necessary daily protein intake with a scoop of NutriFlex.

3. Does not contain synthetic vitamins

Unlike traditional mobility solutions and joint health supplements, our anti-ageing collagen supplements contain only naturally occurring sources of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, minerals, and essential amino acids. These synergistic nutrients are shown to provide superior absorption and efficacy compared to synthetic alternatives, ensuring your pet's joint health is in good hands.

4. No heavy metal toxicity

Formulated with OptiMSM, the only GRAS-certified MSM (organic sulphur) powder in the world. Ultra-pure OptiMSM has been distilled four times to eliminate all traces of toxins and heavy metals.

5. Non-acidic

NutriFlex is formulated with Vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate. Calcium Ascorbate is a powerful immune booster, a non-acidic form of vitamin C that is much more gentle on the gut than regular vitamin C.

6. Guaranteed Quality

Our guarantee is simple: 100% human-grade ingredients, produced in a human food facility, and never any fillers or artificial ingredients. Your pet deserves only the best, and that's exactly what we deliver. With superior, pure ingredients sourced from nature, you can trust that your furry friend is getting the support they need for a long, happy, and active life. You can trust us to provide your beloved companion with the highest quality and safety standards.
