I want my dog to live as long as I do. I want my dog never to lose his mojo and zest for life.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve uttered those words to myself. As much as I wanted my precious Cocker Spaniel, Brandy Noel, to age with me into my twilight years, I knew deep inside my heart, this would never be possible. A great writer once penned, ““Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” (Agnes Sligh Turnbull)
Well, we can extend their lives as much as possible and keep dogs healthy, fit, pain free, and living happy into their golden years thanks to veterinary and medicinal advancements. We now know better, so we do better.
Products claiming to help a pet live a longer and perhaps more pain-free life seem to cross our Fidose desks frequently these days. So it is with great pleasure when one crosses our desks, we investigate it, try it, and it delivers on its promises.
Such is the case with SomaPet.
First and foremost, SomaLife, the parent company of SomaPet, has been around since 1998. Back then, SomaLife, an internationally renowned nutraceutical company was formed. They began creating some of the finest quality products for people to improve brain health, athletic performance, and more. So basically, people were the guinea pigs: yay!
SomaPet is a specific combination of amino acids for pets. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and constitute an essential part of an animal’s diet.
Since our dog, Dexter, is on some new supplements for his joint health and recovering from a torn ACL (ligament) and surgery, we wanted to try this product on one of Dexter’s canine besties.
Meet Zola: She is a rescue dog who came from a shelter in northeastern Pennsylvania. One of our friends adopted her years ago in a chance meeting. Zola’s DNA tests state she is part Rottweiler, part Akita, part Labrador Retriever, and part Chow. Zola’s mom says Zola is all lovebug.
Zola is now 10 years young, has a very sensitive stomach and some allergies, but is in overall very good health. Her mom credits that to frequent walks, good diet, and keeping her dog’s body and mind stimulated. She agreed to try SomaPet on Zola and see how it worked out for a month.

How We Tested SomaPet
Zola is a very fussy eater and she has been since she was rescued from the shelter. Not knowing her back story, we just know she loves duck dog food and we worried she may turn her nose up at the SomaPet.
SomaPet is in a powder form and can be easily mixed with your dog’s usual meal, which is what Zola’s mom did, as you can see in the video below.
A little scooper comes with each jar of SomaPet, so Zola’s mom used one scoop per day on Zola’s evening meal. The folks at SomaPet state your pet should take one scoop per day if up to 50 pounds and 2 scoops per day if over 50 pounds.
Thirty Day Analysis
Zola never got sick once, adjusted immediately to the powder being mixed on her food, and she showed no signs of refusing her food.
Her mom tells us that Zola actually seems to be napping less and she seems to have more energy, so those are the types of comments we enjoy sharing. She plans to continue using SomaPet on Zola.
Of course, we cannot guarantee the same for everyone’s pet, but this is a product we found success in using.
