Wuffes is a relatively new pet supplement company that has seen significant growth since its founding.
Despite this, we have very limited information on its origins or founders at this time. While many new brands like this proudly show and state names and faces, Wuffes has not yet chosen to do so.
The pet supplement space has seen dozens of brands enter in the last few years, and there is now fierce competition to take a slice of a rapidly growing market.
Some of the most popular or well-known supplement companies include Zesty Paws, Dinovite, PetHonesty, and Ultimate Pet Nutrition.
In terms of cost, Wuffes could be considered a pricier option when compared to other brands, but there are some supplements with a higher price point.
For example, Wuffes multivitamins can cost over $1 per chew depending on the quantity purchased, whereas PetHonesty’s multivitamin can cost as little as 30 cents per chew.
While the above shows the pricing available directly from Wuffes, this isn’t the only source available.
Despite many of these newer pet food and supplement brands only selling their products directly from their website, it appears that Wuffes is available on Amazon, which is a bonus for those who regularly purchase from the website or have a Prime membership.
For those of you wondering where Wuffes produces its supplements, they state in the FAQ section of their website that all of their products are made in the USA.
Many dog owners and consumers are wary of products that are produced overseas, especially outside of North America, so this is an important trait.
Many supplement companies have dubious or weak links to qualified veterinarians or industry experts.
However, Wuffes includes several quotes, such as the one below, from Dr. Laura Robinson, DVM, who practices at Antonio Animal Hospital.
We also found a promotional article from the Doctor named Famous Vet reveals her secret to stopping canine joint issues for good.
The exact arrangement between Wuffes and Dr. Laura Robinson isn’t clear, but this could be perceived by some to be a positive indicator.
The opinions and reviews online regarding Wuffes supplements are mixed but generally positive, with negative reviews being in the minority.
On their own website, they have exceptional reviews with their Hip & Joint supplement showing an average score of 4.9 stars, with many reporting improved mobility and reduced pain.
However, reviews and ratings on the brand’s website are rarely reliable and often moderated or manipulated to make them appear favorably.
On a less biased source, their reviews on Amazon for this same product are also positive, and they have an average rating of 4.3 stars, with many customers recommending the supplement and highlighting its success.
The few negative reviews that are available mostly claim the product had little or no effect on their dogs, but in these cases, it is hard to verify or understand if other factors are at play.
Lastly, Wuffes heavily promotes its ‘warranty‘ which allows customers to get a refund on the supplements they purchased within 90 days if they aren’t satisfied.
Many new pet food and supplement brands offer money-back guarantees or warranties like this to give customers the confidence to try their products and see the results without fear of wasting their money.
Wuffes Product Range
As we mentioned above, Wuffes focuses on pet supplements and has a modest range of products available.
They cover most of the major supplement types, including one to improve joint health, a multivitamin, a probiotic, and a supplement to aid dental health.
While there are other types of supplements sold by other companies, this range covers most of the industry’s demand.
Despite this already broad range, we anticipate that Wuffes will expand its offering over time as many of its competitors have.
Given that Wuffes is a supplement company, the nutrition provided by their products is far less critical than if they were a dog food producer.
This means that you should not focus on the protein or fat proportions in their products or whether they are from animal-based sources.
However, while protein and fat may take a backseat, the vitamins and minerals found in their supplements come to the forefront.
For example, their Multivitamin product contains a range of beneficial vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Vitamin A, Manganese, and Iron.
Vitamin B12 can help to facilitate enzyme function, and Vitamin D3 is important to ensure a balance of phosphorous and calcium for bone growth.
Manganese is needed to produce energy, metabolize protein and carbohydrates and make fatty acids, and Iron is a critical component of hemoglobin and myoglobin which carry oxygen in the blood.
While not the case for all dogs, some will struggle to take in sufficient levels of vitamins and minerals from just their normal dog food.
In addition to the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals, Wuffes Hip & Joint Support supplement contains high levels of the Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty acids.
These fatty acids are well-known to have a range of health benefits, including the improvement of a dog’s skin & coat, but Wuffes includes them for their benefits to a dog’s cartilage and cell membranes.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
Given that Wuffes is a dog supplement company, the presence of high-quality meat and fish ingredients is far less critical than if they were a dog food producer.
Despite this, one of their supplements does contain a small portion of Duck Liver which is a high-quality organ meat ingredient.
Organ meat ingredients such as the liver can provide supplementary protein and fat, along with several beneficial vitamins and minerals that are less abundant in typical meat cuts.
We’ve gone into detail about the benefits of organ meat ingredients for dogs in our article Organ Meat Ingredients In Pet Food.
Other Notable Ingredients
One of Wuffes supplements contains a small portion of Yucca Extract, which is a semi-common ingredient in dog food recipes.
Yucca Extract is typically added to dog food recipes in tiny quantities to reduce the odor of their stools, but Wuffes utilize it in their Joint Chews and claim that it improves mobility.
You can learn more about Yucca Extract, including its origins, in our article Yucca Extract In Pet Food.
Flaxseed Oil is probably the most recognizable ingredient found in Wuffes supplements.
While most brands use Flaxseed rather than Flaxseed Oil, they are very similar, and it is extremely common to find one in dog food recipes thanks to its potential health benefits.
Flaxseed is a dense source of beneficial Omega Fatty Acids, which many believe can provide dogs with health benefits such as improvements in the condition of their skin and coat.
However, there are several other health benefits associated with Flaxseed; you can learn more about these in our article Flaxseed In Dog Food.
Wuffes Hip & Joint Support supplement contains a portion of Brewers Yeast as an inactive ingredient.
Brewers Yeast is common in dog food recipes as a minor ingredient and is sourced from the brewing industry as a by-product.
It is rich in several beneficial vitamins and minerals, and some claim that it can also provide health benefits to dogs.
You can read an in-depth discussion on the use of Brewer’s Yeast in our article Brewers Yeast In Dog Food.
Wuffes Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on what type of testing or trials that Wuffes carries out for its supplement products.
It is extremely rare for supplement companies such as Wuffes to provide this, so this does not come as a great surprise.
While it is speculation, we imagine that Wuffes carries out small-scale trials on volunteer animals, such as those owned by company employees.
We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory-style testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which should be eliminated.
Based on our research (FDA, AVMA, DogFoodAdvisor), we can find no evidence that Wuffes has ever issued a recall for any of its products which makes it a recall-free brand.
However, given that Wuffes is a supplement brand, this recall-free record is not a huge surprise. It is very unusual for a pet supplement to be recalled, and there are very few examples.
Regardless, we will always encourage pet owners to be vigilant of any future recalls from Wuffes or any other pet food or supplement brands to ensure their pets remain healthy and safe.
Best of Wuffes
Tens of millions of dog owners take multivitamin supplements every day, and they are now becoming increasingly popular for dogs.
While humans may have varied diets to let them consume a wide range of vitamins and minerals, dogs often have far more repetitive or restrictive diets, and multivitamins like the above from Wuffes help to bridge this gap.
Overall the multivitamin provides 17 different vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Vitamin A, Manganese, and Iron.
These can provide health benefits such as improving a dog’s nervous system, helping bone formulation, improving vision, and improving metabolism.
Joint Chews Review
Another common issue for dogs, especially those who are large breed dogs or older dogs, is hip and joint issues.
This can lead to drastically reduced activity and severe pain for some dogs, which is why so many dog owners are on the lookout for solutions.
The above supplement from Wuffes aims to combat joint issues by including Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM, among others.
These are proven to help alleviate joint issues and reduce inflammation and pain for many dogs.
