Buddha (1969 – 1981)

Dear Reader,

The dog "who looks like a bear" on the front of the Fresh Factors product label is an Akita named "Buddha." He was my dog many years ago. Buddha suffered a broken leg when he was a puppy. By the time he was seven years old, he had developed crippling arthritis in that same leg. Rather than put him down, as recommended by two different vets, I experimented with health foods to try to help him. Feeding him certain natural foods proved to be a miraculous remedy. Not only did he recover, but he regained the power and strength that he had in his prime. He lived five more pain free years before dying at the age of twelve.

Buddha is on the label of Fresh Factors because it is my way of saying, "Thanks friend, you are the reason for Springtime, Inc."

Over the years we have added other ingredients to the formula I had given Buddha and it has evolved into our ultimate, all-around chewable supplement for dogs – Fresh Factors. A few years ago, we developed other chewable products that target specific needs for dogs as well.

More recently, we developed an exciting, powerful product called Longevity, which is a very highly evolved, powdered version of Fresh Factors.

I believe there are millions of dogs who can live longer, happier, and more productive lives for themselves and their loved ones. They give us everything they have. Feeding them the best we possibly can is a way for us to repay them.
