Did you know that the “Blue Spot” is the principal site in the brain for synthesis of norepinephrine, the neurotransmitter responsible for concentration? It’s ok if you don’t, what matters is that Blue Spot Pets does.
Blue Spot Pets is changing the way we think about pet health care. What started out as a trial on their own two King Charles Spaniels, spurred founders, Lutie and Bob Butler, to create a revolutionary business that is unlike all others in the field.
Essentially, Blue Spot Pets tests and analyzes dogs’ neurotransmitter levels to safely gauge a dog’s brain activity and hormone balance. The results of these tests help Blue Spot Pets recommend a dietary supplement that will balance the dog’s neurotransmitter levels.
In case you are unfamiliar with neurotransmitters, they’re chemicals in the brain that signal the body what to do and feel. Chemicals such as Dopamine, Serotonin, Gaba, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine all influence the brain and subsequently, the way you behave, act and feel. This is where the supplements come in.
These supplements are amino acids—American-made, all-natural nutrients—that help to balance your dog’s brain activity. They are produced to meet FDA approved standards and have proven to help behavioral issues such as:
- separation anxiety
- mood issues
- excessive chewing
- disrupted sleep
- eating disorders
- excessive barking
- other behavior problems
Blue Spot Pets’ Brain Wellness Program for dogs is so profound because it is currently the only way to safely test the brain balance of your dog and to do it in the luxury of your own home.
The inspiration for the business began at home, in Austin, Texas, when the Butlers’ King Charles Spaniel, Bo, normally an even-tempered, sweet dog started to have severe issues with separation anxiety.
Knowing they had to do something to help their fur-child, the Butlers had his brain activity tested.
Once they got their results back, they were able to put Bo on a recommended supplement program turning the once nervous dog back into his normal, fun-loving, tail-wagging self.
That’s how you know this program is credible, the Butlers put their own fur-child through it and they did it first. The duo saw a need for an at-home testing and treatment plan for busy pet-parents, thus Blue Spot Pets was born.
Blue Spot Pets is practitioner owned and operated. They take the utmost care in providing a positive patient experience. They truly do care for your and your dog’s welfare because they have been in the shoes of worried pet-parents before.
Lutie and Bob Butler state, “knowing we are providing our customers the basis for a fulfilling life with their furry companion is what gets us out of bed each day.”
They know what it’s like to be a busy pet-parent, therefore they created a home treatment wellness program with American-made, all-natural supplements and solutions that work; providing a peace of mind to their customers and a more relaxed, positive life for their dogs.
Their number one goal is to help you achieve a healthy neurotransmitter/hormone balance for your dog through testing and supplements without any expensive gimmicks.
So How Does The Program Work?
To begin, you must first take their “Free Pet Test,” which can be found on the Blue Spot Pets website.
From there, you order a test kit (packaged with participating in the Brain Wellness Program). This test kit contains a cup, vial, packaging and instructions for urine collection and sample preparation and shipping.
These samples are then sent to the lab where they use the most advanced and reliable technology in the field to ensure quality and detailed results.
Once the tests are analyzed supplement recommendations based on your dog’s results are ready in seven-ten days.
The Brain Wellness Program works in three phases:
Phase I: Conditioning
Lasting between two-six weeks, the goal is to enhance the inhibitory neurotransmitter system so that a foundation can be built.
Phase II: Excitatory
Lasting between three-six months depending on the dog, this is the supplemental phase where dogs will receive their amino acid supplements to balance their brain.
Phase III: Maintenance
The dog is weaned from its dosage of supplements, in which they typically begin to display proper neurotransmitter levels.
Or, for a simpler understanding just think D.O.G.S:
Diagnosis & Testing/Retesting: this is where Blue Spot Pets conducts testing and analyses for your dog (or retesting after the eight-week treatment cycle).
Order: the supplements you order for your dog to get them back on track (or order to replenish supplements as needed).
Gain insight: after your dog has been on our customized supplement plan for a while, this is where you will start to notice a difference in their behavior and gain insight on how the supplements are working.
Sustain: Follow-up testing and assessment are completed in timed eight-week intervals and your supplement recommendation will be adjusted and tweaked over time to ensure your dog is always on track.
After the two testing phases most dogs move to a maintenance level of supplements. Now it’s the time to sustain the health and happiness of your dog, where you’ll move to annual testing to maintain your dog’s health, and, your peace of mind.
While Blue Spot Pets currently only treats dogs, they do envision an expansion in their future. Blue Spot Pets plans to develop different tests and treatment programs for dogs, as well as other animals.
There’s a wide-need for at-home treatments; Blue Spot Pets plans to fill that need.
