Red Cell

Discussion in 'Beagle Health' started by Curry Branch Beagles, Aug 14, 2020.

  1. When I first started beagling there was a guy told me that Red Cell was a good supplement. Any of you fellas use this or have any experience? Just wondering I saw it online the other day and thought of what he told me.

    I used it way back when I field trialed hounds in 2 and 3 day events along with the Ensure milk supplement. Really helped them bounce back the second and third day. My granddaddy used it a lot with his race horses too.

    Red cell is good for the dogs. Gives them the vitamin and minerals they need to perform well. I've used it for years. Also good to give to the males before breeding.

    Yes just pour a little over feed and mix it up. Make sure to keep plenty water available.

    I use the canine red cell during hunting season. Helps them bounce back on those multi all day hunts. Its just vitamins. I also will use Bounce Back electrolytes sometimes.
    Red Cell I just pour a cap full over their food.

    I still feed Mackeral if I’m hunting consecutive days. Or if I hunt every other day I give each dog 1/2 can on top of 2 cups feed. They keep their energy up and hold weight consistently.

    I use it during hunting season and also everyday for a month on a male before breeding. I have seen it help with the sperm count on older dogs that start getting a lower sperm count.

    Hey Mr LT, a bottle is about $9-10, and when I used to buy it by the gallon it was between $20-25, depending on where I got it.
