Kauffman's Success Stories

Indie's Story - Coat & Skin Enhancing Formula

Dear Kauffman's Animal Health,

I wanted to let you know how happy your Kauffmans Canine Skin & Coat formula has made us.  We rescued a 7 week old puppy pitbull from an abandoned house in Philadelphia.  She was left to eat her own feces and garbage in the house.  When we found her, she was severely malnourished and underweight.  We took her home and because her system was not adjusted to eating anything normal she would throw up everything.  After trying for a about a week, it got worse.  The stress set in and she had mange that spread over her entire body.  She lost every hair on her body and caught an infection.  We spent a lot of money and emergency trips to the vet to hydrate her and put her on medication.  It was quite a scary situation. 

After we stabilized her system, we wondered if her hair would ever come back.  We tried a lot of different pro-biotic formulas, vitamins and anything we could find.  My girlfriends father , John Marchezak, is a distributor for you.  He told us to throw away the other junk we had and get her on Kauffman's Canine Coat and Skin.  We were desperate and would try anything.  It was amazing what happened.  Our completely hairless dog started to grow hair within 2 weeks time.  By a months time of using Kauffman's Canine Coat & Skin she was well on her way to a full coat.  We took her back to the vet and they were shocked.  They weren't expecting her to ever grow her hair back. We also have another dog that gets ear infections a lot.  We have tried a lot of medicine to cure it but nothing worked.  We figured we would start to give it to him too.  Within 1 week his ears were clear and we have never had a problem since.  This stuff is amazing.  We are now clients for life.  Thanks Kauffman's and John Marchezak!

I think these before and after pictures tell the story the best.


I just wanted the folks at Kauffman’s to know that your Integri-Hoof is the only product I have found that really works on my horse – a large paint with four white legs and four really bad feet.  He was neglected when I got him and has flat, brittle hooves. I tried several other products, but yours is the only one that made a difference.  My farrier told me to “keep using it!”, he could really see the difference.  Even though Random won’t be with us long (he has cancer), I want him to be the best he can and your product definitely has helped him.  Thank you.

Tiki's Story - Coat & Skin Enhancing Formula

I would like to tell you a success story I have had using Kauffman’s Canine Coat and Skin Supplement with my 5 year old Labrador Retriever Tiki. I know this before picture isn't the greatest but you can see that there is a big patch of Tiki’s coat that looks as if big chunks of hair are missing. There are also lots of scales and dandruff in his coat. There was literally hair, all over my house - not tufts, but chunks that had fallen out and were held together with some kind of dried, yellow, crust. Totally gross. 
Now, as you can see- his coat is totally beautiful- shiny and black as it was when he was a pup : ) His coat is completely full, no blotches or incomplete areas at all. He first began really losing his hair about 1 1/2 years ago and it started with his tail. There was suddenly a huge bald spot. Although most of his hair grew back at some point before he lost it again, this particular patch on his tail never grew back - until he started taking the supplement you provided. 
He was diagnosed through a biopsy with sebaceous adenitis. He is not taking any meds at this time and hasn't been since he began taking the Coat and Skin supplement. He HAS been eating a grain free food which I think has been helpful as well. However, while on the ultra expensive prescription grain free food only, his coat was better- but not nearly as nice as it is now. Every day I look at him and can't believe he looks so gorgeous again!


Thank you for such a wonderful product!

Digestive Health Formula is a miracle!  I tried it for my horse who occasionally had unexplained chronic issues with soft manure and then suffered from sudden colitis.  He recovered after 2 weeks in the hospital but continued to have chronic diarrhea for 8 months.  I tried everything, including gastroguard, Biosponge, probiotics, Smartgut, and other products the vets recommended and those I tried on my own.  Nothing made a difference.  Within ONE DOSE of Digestive Health Formula my horse’s manure started to look more normal and within days his manure continued to improve, within weeks it is 90% better.  It is magic. 

Thank you Kauffman’s, I’m sure he feels a LOT better!

Below is my story that you may find interesting about your product...

I have been using your Integri-hoof supplement for several years on my old thoroughbred.  He had terrible hooves, thin soles and walls with a flakey texture. But after a year on Integri-Hoof, Skeeter's hooves changed for the better dramatically.

I remember having a chat concerning the use of supplements for hoof problems with my farrier who has worked on my horses for over twenty years.  In his opinion, supplements did not have much to do with hoof quality, "it's environment, feed and genetics," he said, " so don't waste your money."  He always found trimming Skeeter to be interesting.  He'd think out loud saying 'so what've we got this time.'  In fact, he asked me to remind him every time he went to work on Skeeter, that 'this is the horse you don't take any sole off of or he's sore for a couple weeks."  

We live at 7200 ft. elevation at the base of the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming.  This climate is NOT conducive to even good hooves. It's a dry climate with lots of sun but extremely long, cold and snowy winters plus flood irrigation of our pastures in the summers.  Tough horses are needed in Wyoming!  I bought Skeeter in Arizona 23 years ago where he did not have any hoof problems.  But I was just so impressed with his big heart and beautiful eye, I never gave up on him....we traveled many steep and rocky trails here in beautiful Wyoming but have had a number of layoffs due to hoof problems

After reading the reviews in Horse Journal, I started feeding Integri-Hoof to my aging handsome thoroughbred.  Unfortunately, it was kind of a last ditch effort to make him more comfortable or face that inevitable decision about quality of life, he'd been retired for several years.  Finally, the farrier said, "wow, is this the same horse with those terrible hooves?"  I said 'Yeah' now you can see the difference a high-quality hoof supplement makes, can't you?!...........He said Yeah, where did you find that?!



I decided to find a farrier to barefoot trim our horses and make it a little easier on ourselves. I found someone who came well recommended and we had our first appointment yesterday. I had explained to him that I wanted to leave my horses barefoot as they have been this way for years and I have not experienced any negative aspects of keeping them this way even though I do some tough trail riding over some very rocky areas. Before he trimmed the boys he talked to me about using hoof boots if the boys seemed to be wearing their feet excessively or become tender. I didn’t really comment because I have never really had to use them due to not having any issues.

He trimmed Tenacious then Chic. He got half way through trimming Hank when he looked up and said, “ All three of your horses have incredible feet. Really healthy, tough feet that are pliable and strong. I can understand now why you don’t use shoes or boots.” At that point I had to tell him why I think my horse’s feet are so healthy- KA-HI, Integri-Hoof, and Flex Steps. 



Dreyfus's Story - FORTITUDE® Canine Joint

FORTITUDE® CANINE products have no chemical preservatives, no wheat or soy derivatives and have proven palatability and results. "We had excellent results in our palatability studies," said Melissa Giordano, "but the proof for me is how well my own dog has done on the FORTITUDE® CANINE JOINT supplement. My 10 year old St. Bernard loves the taste.  He gets excited about eating his meals and is showing a marked improvement in mobility; he's even playing with our other dog, an energetic two year-old.


Kauffman's Integri-Hoof - It's Amazing!

I wanted to share before and after pics of my horses hooves:

C Eldridge hoof before    

Above: September 17 his hooves were bad -I ordered and started him on Integri-Hoof.

c eldridge hoof after    

Above: October 14- the farrier came out and you can see the results!

It's amazing!

Thank you so much.

He had never had a problem until this summer (very wet) - I am so happy with the increased strength in hoof and his frog. His hooves are very hard and have had great growth since being on your product! 


My horse is on Hay 24/7- 1st cut Timothy and a handful of grain - I looked a about 6 - hoof products and picked the one with supplements that would assist as I know he gets little if any nutrition from such a small amount of grain and I did not want to purchase multiple products and give too much of anything. Your product was cost effective and supplied everything he needed to recover quickly.

Thank you!
