Her pedigree does not reflect a lack of colour. How much per bottle and for shipping to Australia?Wendy aitken says:Hi. My 2 year old whippet is losing hair on his back legs tummy and armpits. My vet started him on your searliest kelp 3 weeks ago. How long till I see a difference please? Thanks.Ben says:Hi Wendy – we recommend to give our products for at least 4 – 6 weeks in order to start seeing the full effects of the products. This time allows them to build up in the system, often you might see results quicker but it’s always best to give them a longer period just in case as every dog is different. If you don’t get the results you expect please do contact us directly either via phone or email so that we can talk through other options with you.Donnae Gous says:HiPlease let me know how I can get your products here in Johannesburg, South African.Please get back to me ASAPMany thanksDonnaeBen says:Hi Donnae, you can order direct from our website and it will automatically calculate the carriage charge.

Does UV lamp in early stages can assist or can cause any damage to the new born puppy.Ben says:Hello Yoel. Unfortunately we cannot comment on products that are not our own and all of our products cannot be given until the puppy is 8 weeks of age. As it is a pigment issue, it will be linked with genetics so it is therefore advisable to let the puppy grow before starting to think about giving pigmentation supplements. Any other questions do give us a call on 01308 897272.Samantha Bensley says:Hi I was wondering if you could help my 5 month old puppy beagle head is turning white. It was black to tanned now it’s turning white. I’m wondering if he has pigmentation issue. Would any of your products help with keeping the black and tan dark?Ben says:Hi Samantha, if it is a pigmentation issue we would recommend our Elderberry & Nettle Extract or our Kelp Seaweed Tablets but it would be good to get a little bit more information so do give one of our advisors a call on 01308 897272 and they can help you futher- The Dorwest TeamLAURA LONERGAN says:Will the Elderberry & Nettle help improve pigmentation (not replace lost pigmentation)? Looking to adopt a white dog who has quite a bit of pink around the eyes, ears & mouth. Looking to see if there is something to help increase/improve his pigmentation & lessen sensitivity to extreme heat & cold.Thank you.Ben says:Hi Laura, The Elderberry & Nettle Extract is naturally rich in iron and iodine, and so can help to improve pigmentation 🙂 However, as pigmentation is often due to genetics, some pigmentation cannot be changed.Whilst this product can help with poor pigmentation due to a lack of minerals or they have winter nose, it will not be able to change the genetics of the dog 🙁 If this was to be successful, it can take a minimum of 6 weeks to see improvement, following with the skin renewal process. If you would like further advice please do ring us on 01308 897 272 or email email@example.com- The Dorwest Teamramesh says:Ramesh from indiaHi I am interested in the Elberberry and Nettle extract for mouth pigmentation improvements in Rottweilers.My email is firstname.lastname@example.orgPlease kindly advise how we may be able to purchase this product for indiaThankyouBen says:To order the Elderberry & Nettle Extract you can do so directly on our website, this will automatically calculate your postage cost as it takes into account the destination and the weight of the parcel.

She has had a procedure to flush out her tear ducts which has worked. However it is now noticeable that the dark pigmentation which should surround the eye is hardly there on tge eye which was the worst for being blocked. Is it likely for the pigmentation to improve if i administer one if your recommended products?Ben says:Hi Helen, to help with pigmentation we would recommend our Elderberry & Nettle Extract as this is specifically formulated to assist with lack of pigmentation. It is added to the feed daily and can be given at any time of year and with any feeding regime without affecting the dietary balance.Alternatively Kelp Seaweed Tablets, or Kelp Seaweed Powder, may be used as these contain all the minerals and trace elements required by the body, including high iodine and iron content. (Please bare in mind the Kelp Seaweed Tablets are not suitable for those 5kg and under due to the high iodine and iron content)It is necessary to give either product for a minimum of one month to enhance pigmentation that has been lost although it may take two or more months for it to be completely restored. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee restored pigment in all cases, as each individual dog and the circumstances vary.

It will take around 6 weeks of daily use to see an improvement as part of the skin's renewal process.Julie says:I need a product that helps with mouth pigmentation for a Rottweiler. Can this be ordered in the United States ?Ben says:Hi Julie, thanks for your question. We don't have any stockists in the USA but you can order from us in the UK and we can ship to you.
