Spanish-bred show champion Golden Retriever, Zampanzar Say It Again Shardanell, or ‘Archie’ as he is known at home, arrived in the UK at the age of 10 months and his owner, Margaret Joy, of Shardanell Goldens, started him on VetSpec Coat & Skin supplement straight away to get him ready for the show season.
VetSpec Coat & Skin is an innovative supplement for dogs. Its unique formula promotes fabulous coats, wonderful skin condition and aids the natural pigmentation process. It is the perfect partner for show dogs that need a heavier and glossier coat to look their best, but is also a great choice for dogs with scurfy coats and itchy skin and those recovering from a variety of skin conditions.
Said Margaret: “When Archie arrived he was out of coat but by the time his first show came up, his coat was coming back and he won ‘Best Puppy.’ He never looked back and had won his Junior Warrant (JW) within four months.”
The Junior Warrant (JW) is an award which a dog can achieve through winning certain awards at Open and Championship shows when the dog is between six and eighteen months of age. The JW also enables the dog to gain a Stud Book Number. Once achieved, owners can enter their dog at shows with the title ‘JW’.
Margaret was so pleased with Archie’s beautiful coat that she has kept him on VetSpec Coat & Skin ever since and he is now almost seven years old.
Said Margaret: “Archie tends to hold his coat for 10 months of the year which I am sure is down to VetSpec Coat & Skin. I am proud to say he currently holds the title of ‘Top Sire All Breeds’ which is quite an achievement for a Golden Retriever. He is also the ‘Top Golden’ and has won in total thirteen Challenge Certificates (CC) and eleven Reserve Challenge Certificates.”
Margaret also has two older show champion Golden Retrievers – 14-year-old Murphy (Shardanell All That Jazz) and 13-year-old Harry (Shardanell Castaspell).
Harry is Archie’s sire and both these older dogs are on VetSpec Joint Mobility – a highly specified canine supplement, ideal for all dogs to support joint flexibility and aid the natural anti-inflammatory process. It is specially formulated by experienced nutritionists with scientifically proven ingredients including glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin and antioxidants.
Said Margaret: “VetSpec Joint Mobility keeps these older boys fit and less stiff. I especially notice the benefits through the winter months. We live in South Wales and get a lot of rain so it can be very damp. I believe VetSpec Joint Mobility definitely helps them deal with it.”
