"Thank you Summit for the gift of love!"

I use Summit for my 11 year old Cocker Spaniel Maggie. Maggie is a rescue who, thanks to Summit is living her best life. Maggie can still walk 2 miles a day, plays like a puppy and goes everywhere with me.

"The relief my dog got was so fast!"

We have older dogs that were having trouble playing, running, jumping and enjoying their senior years. I was interested in trying Summit from reviews I read about. I'm so excited to write that my dogs can run and play again! You have to try it and believe it by watching your fur baby feel so much better. Thank you for a great product.

"This product saved my dog!"

At the age of 5 I thought my boy would have to end his life way too early due to hip issues. I gave summit a shot and it saved his life! He moves like a puppy now and is almost 8 years old. I recommend Summit to anyone who's dog has joint and mobility issues. It has given my dog new life!

"This product is included on the monthly budget."

This product is included on the monthly budget. My dog Marshall Mckiddo knows what day is his injection day and jumps on the bed by himself looks at me lays for the shot- kisses me when it's done as he knows that works. It is brought new life back into my nine-year-old companion. I was concerned when he was slowing down on our hikes and horseback rides but now he's running through the trees like a puppy!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the injection protocol for the loading dose of Summit Equine/Canine?

    Give one IM (intra-muscular) shot every 4 days for 16 days. After the loading dose, most horses and/or dogs will be able to switch to a once or twice-per-month dosing schedule. High performance horses in heavy competition can benefit from using Summit more often. Many top-level horses on a Summit regimen use it once a week.

  • Are there any negative side effects?

    As with any injection, there is always a slight risk of an injection site reaction. The occurrences of an injection site reaction with Summit has been less than 1 in 10,000. It has not however been tested in pregnant animals.

  • What are the differences between SummitMax Equine, Canine and Flex?

    SummitMax Equine 5ml (200mg of C4S) is for any size horse or large sized mammals. SummitMax Flex 1ml (100mg of C4S) is for large breed dogs exceeding 100lbs and can also be used on mini horses and mid-sized mammals. SummitMax Canine 1ml (80mg C4S) is for canines up to 100lbs.

  • Can SummitMax be given with other medications and/or supplements?

    The product is naturally derived and due to C4S naturally occurring in the body there are no contraindications or negative effects with Summit and any other supplements, drugs, or conditions. However, it is advised by our veterinarian to wait one week after giving Oshpos before your next dose of SummitMax.

  • Do I administer the whole vial?

    Yes. Each vial is a single dose. To ensure sterility, we do not make multi-dose vials of the SummitMax products.

  • What can SummitMax be used for?

    Impacts comfort, athletic performance, mobility, flexibility, recovery, circulation, stamina, and joint health. If a horse has a chip in a joint, typically surgery is needed. Please consult your veterinarian.

  • Can I give the SummitMax equine product to my dog?

    Dosing your dog 5ml of the SummitMax Equine solution could be painful. SummitMax Equine is formulated for horses and the concentration of C4S is different in the Equine and Canine products. The Equine product is 5ml and contains 200mg of C4S. While our SummitMax Canine product is 1ml and contains 80mg of C4S.

  • Why do I have 2 needles with my SummitMax Flex order?

    Specific instructions for each product are included in each package. The SummitMax Flex solution is very concentrated. It is best to draw out the thicker solution with the provided 20-gauge needle. For an xl dog, use the smaller 25-gauge needle for comfort and administer.  For a pony or horse, you may proceed with the 20-gauge needle to administer.
