The Missing Link Giveaway!

I am really excited about this giveaway.

Recently, I was contacted by Missing Link and asked to try out their product on my two dogs and cat. I jumped at the chance. What an opportunity!

I have been hearing about Missing Link for some time now. As a regular listener of Katie K9, I have often heard her recommending it to owners with dog(s) and/or cat(s) with compromised immune systems. I have also heard other pet owners mention that it has helped their dog’s allergies or made their dog’s coat look amazing. You can read a few stories here, and here and here.

Missing link contains Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9, flaxseed lignans, and phytochemicals (phytochemicals have anti-rheumatic, anti-allergenic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-carcinogenic properties. They are recognized for their disease fighting properties.) In other words, if you’ve got a dog who is suffering from allergies, or has a weakened immune system or is getting older and needs a supplement to help build up their immune system, Missing Link should be something you consider trying. And, here was my chance to try it out!

However, I’ve decided to do something a little different. I am going to share this generous gift with two of my readers and buy my own bags of missing link for my dogs and cat. I am giving away one 1 lb. bag of Canine Formula with Joint Support and one 6oz. bag of Feline Formula.

Here are the rules for the giveaway:

1. “Like” No Dog About It’s Facebook fan page (on the right).

2. Post a picture of your dog or cat on our Facebook page (Don’t forget to include you pet’s name!). This is your “before” picture.

3. If you win, agree to post another picture (the “after” picture) of your cat or dog on our Facebook fan page 40 days from now and share your dog or cat’s results after taking Missing Link.

The contest will run until midnight (12:00 AM Central Time), October 12, 2011. Two winners will be selected at random using, and will be notified via Facebook. Only those who post a picture of their cat or dog on our Facebook fan page between now and and 12:00 AM Central Time, October 12, 2011, will be eligible to win. Winners will have three days to claim their prize, or another winner will be drawn from the entry pool. I will post the winners on my blog on October 13th. Good luck!

In the fairness of full disclosure, I have chosen to share the third bag of Canine Formula with my client Kelly, and her dog, Clover (see pictures below). Clover has been suffering from severe allergies and has been on Prednisone to help control the itching. She will join the two winners, and my own dogs and cat, in this little experiment. I will share updates about all of the pets in about 40 days.

    Clover is quite beautiful. I hope your generous gift will help ease her suffering. Now that I have been through food issues of my own with my dog, I know how hard it can be. Thanks for putting together this great giveaway!

      I think she is too. You should have seen the wounds she had on her head and body from scratching though. It was awful.
      I hope you’ll try to win for Shiva. 🙂

    Thank you for telling us about this, Mel! Our dog, Chester, suffers horribly from allergies. I can imagine what Kelly experiences with Clover. I’m going to have to try this!

      Thanks Rumpy. I have heard great things about Missing Link. I can’t wait to try it. Hope you’ll post your picture so you can have a chance to win!

    I’m going to leave the contest to those who might need the prize more, but Mel, you know I “like” you on Facebook and off! 🙂

    Interesting product that I’ll have to check out. I’d love to see you link up your giveaways like this one to our Fido’s Freebie Friday. Hopefully it would bring in some new readers.

    Thanks for stopping by All Things Dog Blog. It’s always good to see you. Tanner did finally have moderate success. He managed to bring me 2 of the 4 toys in the pool. Yay! Progress.

    When I chose to treat Agatha’s Cushing’s disease naturopathically, Missing Link was the supplement our vet recommended. I can’t say exactly what part it played, but Agatha had a much higher quality of life than her sister Christie who had been treated conventionally for her Cushings. I hope you see good results from using it.

      How interesting Pamela. I didn’t know that Agatha and Christie had Cushings. How awful. 😦

      Hilary said she uses Missing Link for her dogs now. I started the dogs and cat on it yesterday. They seem to like it.
      I’m looking forward to seeing the results. Thanks for sharing your own experience with others.

    I have heard great things about this product before, but have no had the chance to try it out yet!
    I would love to see if this would help with Sherman’s SLO, a condition where his nails just break and fall off. He doesn’t happen all the time, it seems as though he goes through bouts of it.
    Thanks for this great giveaway!

      You’re welcome! I look forward to seeing a picture of Sherman on No DOg About It’s FB fan page!

    Love the missing link, we’ve used their products for over a decade and can’t say enough positive things about them. And Smartpak makes the individual packs for them which is even awesomer.
