MycoDog Mushrooms for Dog Health
How MycoDog Helped Angela’s Dogs
clarity for daisie & potato
Clarity was designed to support your dog’s cognitive disorder, nervous system, mental and emotional health, formulated with a proprietary water extract of Lion’s Mane, Reishi and Cordyceps, with Bacopa Monnieri and Ashwagandha.
“I lost two of my dogs, Potato and Daisie, to dementia, to CCD, canine cognitive dysfunction, which is Alzheimer’s for dogs. So knowing the power of Lion’s Mane and Reishi mushrooms for dogs, I knew what they could do for these geriatric dogs. Odie, my senior mini-schnauzer, was turning 16 soon and I wanted to be able to support him as best as I could. I have literally watched Odie, my senior dog, go from having no interest in eating to taking his mushrooms and eating like a monster the next day.”
Breathe for Odie
Breathe was designed to help your dog’s respiratory and cardiovascular systems, formulated with proprietary water extract of Cordyceps, Reishi, Artist Conk and Chaga, with Ashwagandha.
“I also created Breathe for Odie because in his old age he suffers from collapsing trachea, a heart murmur, and CHF, according to his last integrative vet. I just see him getting old and needing extra cardiovascular and respiratory support. After formulating my MycoDog mushroom blends for dogs, I literally can see a difference in my dog’s behavior and health by giving them these mushrooms.”
vitality for nina
Vitality was formulated as a mushroom supplement for dogs dealing with Cancer, Autoimmune Disease, Liver issues and Respiratory issues. Vitality is formulated with a proprietary water extract of Turkey Tail, Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake, Chaga, Artist Conk and Red Belted Conk, with Astragalus Root and Ashwagandha.
“If you’ve been following me, you’ve heard about Nina, my doberman who beat all odds against bone cancer by surviving 26 months past her prognosis. When Nina was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, I researched the best medicinal mushrooms for dogs to help Nina’s body fight the cancer, and I formulated Vitality with other adaptogenic herbs that make this tincture even more powerful!”

Angela knew that pet parents deserve to be offered mushroom supplements for dogs that contain a combination of the most beneficial medicinal mushroom extracts and complementary adaptogens. Medicinal mushrooms for dogs that can help with common but severe pet ailments like cancer, autoimmune disease, IVDD, CCD, respiratory issues, cardiovascular issues, kidney and liver support, and immune support.

Mushrooms are bio-accumulators (which absorb toxins from polluted air and environment), so Angela made sure to search for mushrooms grown in their natural habitat, in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. It is important to source the best mushrooms for dogs from an area that is least likely to be impacted by environmental toxins which might be absorbed by the mushrooms.
