The Perfect Healthful Treat

Your Pet Will Love!

KnuGroup is your Pet’s choice!

KnuGroup is a group of supplements disguised as yummy treats for dogs and cats. The KnuGroup products were formulated to be a rich source of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids, which prevents inflammation among other things. Dr. Richard K. Baird, VMD is a small animal veterinarian who started experimenting with the use of O3EFAs in 1988. Through clinical observations, not through lab research Dr. Baird with the help of Dr. Ray Heinicke, respected biochemist and pet nutritionist developed the KnuGroup products.

All KnuGroup products follow the same three principles: 100% All Natural Ingredients, Veterinarian Approved, and Made in the USA

The KnuGroup products are All-Natural Daily Pet Supplements that
Promote Healthy Joints, Inflammation reduction, and Pain management 

It is universally believed by veterinary nutritionists that pets receive plenty of O6s in their normal daily diets. Therefore, as the first commandant, any meaningful supplement must contain not only more O3s than O6s, but also must contain a clinically significant amount of O3s. O3s always sufficiently outnumber the amounts of O6s in both KnuBar and KnuBoost Bar. The continued demand of pet owners for both KnuBar and KnuBoost Bar administered under the direction of their veterinarian continually reaffirms the success of KnuBar and KnuBoost Bar in the clinical veterinary medical environment.

KnuBar™ was originally invented as a healthy treat to help Dr. Baird’s patents with seasonal allergies. Through clinical studies, Dr. Baird found overwhelming success using this product to help relieve symptoms of not only allergies, but also joint pain, mobility, skin, and coat issues in dogs and cats. The secret is all in the ingredients: Omega 3 Fatty Acids and Zinc.

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids have been proven to support the health of the skin, coat, joints, kidneys, heart and immune system of dogs and cats.
  • Zinc deficiencies in your pet can lead to Zinc-Responsive Dermatosis, an issue which can cause dermatology issues like dry skin and dark circles around the eyes.

KnuBoost™ Bar was created through several reformulations of KnuBar™ from the clinical studies run by Dr. Baird. KnuBoost™ Bar contains all of the same healthy ingredients that your pets love from KnuBar™, with the added strength of high-grade glucosamine. This treat is also a supplement that will give your pet the nutrients they need for healthy joints and mobility. The secret is all in the added glucosamine.

  • Glucosamine production begins to slow as your pet ages. As a result, the natural repair process in the body slows, eventually leading to joint pain and stiffness. Added glucosamine to your pet’s diet will aid them in a quicker recovery time for their joints
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids have been proven to support the health of the skin, coat, joints, kidneys, heart and immune system of dogs and cats.
  • Zinc deficiencies in your pet can lead to Zinc-Responsive Dermatosis, an issue which can cause dermatology issues like dry skin and dark circles around the eyes.

KnuLease™ is the only pet supplement for joint pain on the market that is created from 100% BiovaFlex®. This water-soluble egg membrane is designed by nature to protect the incubating chick and supply the nutrients needed for healthy development. These same nutrients makeup 100% of the ingredients in KnuLease™,  in the same ratios that nature intended. These ingredients are proven to support joint health and increased mobility.

  • Collagen – protein located in muscles and tissues that act as the glue holding everything together. Collagen production begins to slow with age.
  • Elastin – located in the cardiovascular system, cartilage, and spinal column; Elastin allows muscular tissue to stretch and resume its shape.
  • Desmosine & Isodesmosine – two unique amino acids that aid in elastin’s flexibility and resiliency, while also stimulating collagen production
  • Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – similar to collagen in that they act as the structure holding critical tissues together.
  • Transforming Growth Factor Proteins these proteins aid your pet’s joints and muscles with recovery
Omega 3 Fatty Acids are the main combatants used in KnuBar™ to manage joint inflammation, mobility issues, and other benefits.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids are an essential part of your dog’s diet because like humans, dogs cannot produce Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 6s and 3s are both susceptible to damage from heat and when it is added to food it often gets destroyed during a kibbling process. During production, KnuBar™ is precisely monitored and the Omega 3 Fatty Acids are added at the optimal time to ensure they retain the highest possible quality. The best part about it is that the amounts of Omega 3 Fatty Acids in KnuBar™ products are approximately 10 times the amount that any other manufacturer has produced to date!

KnuBar™ is a daily nutraceutical supplement disguised as a treat. KnuBar™ provides the missing nutrients that can be used to help manage the pain caused by many disorders. If your dog presents any of these conditions, KnuBar™ can help:

 

✅ Swollen Joints

✅ Licking of the joint area

✅ Unwillingness to walk, jump, or climb stairs, Lameness

✅ Difficulty when rising from a resting position

✅ Popping and cracking when the joint moves

KnuGroup was founded by Dr. Richard K. Baird, a practicing veterinarian in Uniontown PA with over 40 years of experience. Dr. Baird’s vision for KnuGroup was to help pets that suffer from seasonal allergies with a healthy treat that could provide therapeutic levels of specific Omega 3 Fatty Acids. This idea led to the very first creation of KnuBar™, which has since been continuously improved to provide the best possible relief to pets suffering from seasonal allergies. With this success, Dr. Baird began to search for other ways that supplements could benefit his four-legged patients.

Through clinical studies, Dr. Baird found that KnuBar was not only helping to alleviate allergy symptoms, but also led to greater mobility and a decreased need for pain management. This discovery led him to begin using KnuBar’s high-quality Omega 3 Fatty Acids to help his patients’ issues with mobility and joint pain. Through these tests, Dr. Richard Baird has become confident in the benefits that come from the premium grade of Omega 3 Fatty Acids that KnuBar™ offers. He is so confident in fact, that he dispenses this product to his patients every single day through his veterinary practice.

Omega 3 fatty acids and Glucosamine are the two main combatants used in KnuBoost™ Bars to manage joint inflammation and other benefits

Glucosamine, When Glucosamine is paired with the compound chondrite which is naturally present in your pet’s cartilage, begins to repair damaged cartilage, Glucosamine is also naturally present in your pet’s cartilage, however, the production slows as your pet ages. The added glucosamine in KnuBoost™ Bars will allow your pet to have a much quicker recovery time for their joints over the introduction of just Omega 3 Fatty Acids.

Still Have Questions?

Pain Management
One size does not fit all. For best results, that decision of when to start should be best answered by the pet owner in consultation with the family veterinarian.  Rule of Thumb: sooner rather than later for O3EFA supplementation for the best chance of maximizing the family’s time with the canine members of the family. 

Pain management not only treats what can be readily observed… but it is a known fact that low-grade pain significantly increases oxidative stress, and oxidative stress compounds the clinical effects of diseases and illnesses. Ultimately, oxidative stress can even kill patients!

Kidney Disease: Are O3EFAS Helpful?
Kidney disease is a stealth-like disease that affects many older dogs. Unfortunately, clinical signs almost never show up until the pathological process has damaged at least 90% of the kidney mass. While O3EFAs do not prevent kidney disease, O3EFAs naturally lower blood pressure. This naturally lowering of the patient’s blood pressure supports the patient’s natural fight against the self-induced progression of kidney disease.

O3EFA’s also fight the progression of physical devastation of the patient’s muscle mass. In almost all cases supplementation with O3EFAs make pets with renal disease feel better, move better, retain muscle mass better, act less in pain and remain more interactive with the family.

Why use pet health supplements?
Having a good ratio of Omega 3s and 6s is essential to a healthy diet. When evolving Human beings were eating a diet that consisted of about a 1:1 ratio. Modern diets can range from a ratio of 15:1 to 17:1. The heavy reliance upon corn as a staple in our diets has led to the disproportion of the Omega ratios, and this is now effecting our pets as well. Pet food is also being made using corn and as a result your pets dietary needs have shifted.

KnuGroup products are unique compared to other Omega fatty acid supplements because instead of providing Omega 3s and 6s, KnuGroup products only contain Omega 3s. When both Omega 3s and 6s are provided it does not sway the ratio at all.

What are KnuGroup Products?
KnuGroup products do three things: measurably increases joint flexibility and overall mobility of the user, significantly reduces or completely relieves the aches and pain associated with both aging and past injuries, and greatly reduces the recovery time for aches and pains
What makes KnuGroup products special or unique?
Chemical make-up, purity and excellent bioavailability above all else makes KnuGroup products special and unique to all other joint health products. The nutrient makeup is what Mother Nature offers in the eggshell membrane. Knugroup products do not undergo any extraction process that damages the native ingredients thus guaranteeing that KnuGroup products contain absolutely no chemical residue remnants from harsh manufacturing processes. And, while most joint health products have some of the nutrients and building blocks in their formulations, they do not have them all.

Purity is another important aspect of KnuGroup products. The original intent for the hen’s eggshell membrane is to supply all of the ingredients of KnuBar, plus calcium for developing bones to the un-hatched baby chick. While calcium may be great for bones, its residual presence in KnuBar would only dilute the active ingredients involved with enhancing joint health. So, when we speak of “purity” we are referencing that the calcium has been 94% removed from our sourced eggshell membrane powder resulting in purity that mg for mg contains maximum active ingredients for maintaining joint health.

Finally, all eggshell membrane-containing products contain some glycosaminoglycans that are concentrated by an extraction process. As previously stated, KnuGroup products do not undergo any extraction process that damages the native ingredients; therefore the active ingredients found in KnuGroup products are delivered as they occur naturally and are immediately ready to work — which translates into excellent bioavailability.

What are the benefits of eggshell membrane powder?
I never heard of eggshell membrane powder. Why all the excitement and what is driving all the attention?

The excitement at KnuGroup (the parent company of KnuBar) is driven by the results of the clinical trial done on dogs by Dr. Richard Baird, a practicing veterinarian who runs a Pain Management Program in his Uniontown PA veterinary practice. Dr. Baird was certain that a clinical trial using dogs in a real veterinary practice environment would demonstrate the efficacy of KnuBar in real life by real patients closer to the truth than some group of laboratory animals.

Dr. Baird states:  “Animals do not lie and they are not subject to the placebo affect! Therefore, when testing the efficacy of a product relative to increasing joint flexibility and patient mobility, no group of subjects produce an answer closer to the truth than actual patients in a veterinary practice environment. My conclusion from the clinical trial is that KnuBar relieves pain faster and more completely than any other supplement on the market including all the usual suspects as well as the exotics like reindeer antlers, shark fin, algae, crustaceans, etc.”

Have any clinical trials been done in humans?
Yes. The clinical trial done in humans after the original clinical trial done on dogs by Dr. Baird vividly reaffirms the findings of the original dog-trials.
Are their side effects of KnuGroup Products?
Usually, a better quality of life. There are no known or recognized negative side effects.
Can Overdosing on KnuGroup Products Occur?
No.
Is this product safe to be used long-term?
Yes. While no long-term studies for any eggshell membrane related products have been done, animals and humans have been ingesting the contents of EMP [eggshell membrane powder] for centuries without any problems arising. What makes KnuLease [100% hydrolyzed eggshell membrane powder] safe is the purification and the virtual elimination of collateral non-active ingredients.
