About Dr. Marty ProPower Plus

If you have a dog, there’s a good chance that you treat him like he is a member of your family. From where he sleeps to what he eats, you probably put a lot of thought into how you care for him.

That’s why it’s so important to invest in dog food that you trust and to make sure that food contains everything your dog needs in order to be healthy.

But are you giving him everything you possibly can? Dr. Martin Goldstein doesn't think so, which is why he created Dr. Marty ProPower Plus, also known as “the canine code”.

How Does Dr. Marty ProPower Plus Work?

Canine Code was developed by Dr. Martin Goldstein, one of the country’s top veterinarians and a graduate of Cornell University. Goldstein also authored a book titled The Nature of Animal Healing: The Definitive Holistic Medicine Guide to Caring for Your Dog and Cat. Goldstein combines his experiences as a veterinarian with his knowledge of Western medicine, blending the two to offer unique nutritional therapy.

He argues that dogs, in particular, are at an increased risk of developing cancer. If you know the warning signs and can stop its progression with a specific supplement, wouldn’t you want to give it a try? You don’t have to change your dog’s food - you just need to add a simple supplement.

Dr. Marty ProPower Plus is a dog food supplement that contains a unique probiotic enzyme blend along with healthy ingredients like bromelain. It works for all breeds of dogs at roughly the same dosage (with a variation of a half scoop to two scoops depending on weight) to boost their digestive function, improving their gut health, making their coats shinier, and even creating scratch-free skin.

The ingredients are packed into a powder that can be sprinkled over your dog’s food or a snack. With fourteen health-boosting ingredients and more than 2 billion CFUs, the product can help keep your dog healthy no matter its size, age, or breed - at least, according to Dr. Goldstein, that is.

But does Dr. Marty’s ProPower Plus supplement work - and is Pro Power Plus good for dogs? The jury’s still out.

Cost and Price Plans

Before we talk about the advantages - and some of the concerns - related to Canine Code, it’s important to look at the cost first. A jar of Dr. Marty’s won’t come cheap in fact, you’ll need to pay $134.85 for three bottles! While shipping is free and this includes enough doses for quite a period of time, it can still be cost-prohibitive for some people. To qualify for the low three- or six-bottle purchase price (a discount of 10%), you will need to sign up for a subscription plan, too.

Competitors and Alternatives

There are plenty of other supplements out there for you to choose from. Purina Pro Plan is a recognized dog food brand that offers a supplement known as FortiFlora. Like Canine Code, this supplement contains probiotics and contains 100 million CFUs. It’s affordable, coming in at close to half the price of Canine Code, too.

Another option is Nusentia Probiotic Miracle. Also more affordable than Canine Code, it is in the form of a powder and has more than 360 billion CFUs - much more than Dr. Marty’s blend.

You might also compare ProPower Plus vs. Dinovite. Dinovite is a similar supplement that can address digestive issues as well as odors, skin problems, shedding, and itching. You can buy it in a shampoo form as well as in a dog or cat treat form.

These aren’t the only probiotic supplements on the market - there are countless others. However, like Dr. Marty’s product, none of these are backed by solid veterinary research.

Online Customer Reviews/Complaints

Be cautious when investing in ProPower Plus. Although there aren’t many negative reviews or complaints out there, there also aren’t very many positive ones. The supplement contains relatively natural ingredients, including probiotics, kelp thallus powder, and Champignon mushroom extract.

These ingredients are healthy, for sure, but there is no information or research anywhere indicating that these are safe or even beneficial for dogs. Although mushrooms are known to be high in protein and fiber, there are some that can be toxic to dogs.

The bottom line is that it is important to do your research before investing in ProPower Plus. Although it seems to be safe, the company is so new - and there is so little information related to it as a result - that you should definitely be cautious when buying. And if you plan on using the supplement for off-label use (such as for cats), you definitely need to contact your veterinarian to get the all-clear first.

Customer Service

Canine Code has a mailing address in Woodland Hills, CA. Owned by California Pet Partners and Dr. Marty Goldstein,  you can get in touch with customer service at the company by calling 1-800-670-1839. The company has a 100% hassle-free guarantee that will allow you to send the jars back for a full refund - even if they are empty.

Where to Buy?

You can purchase this supplement directly from the manufacturer.

Is ProPower Plus Worth It?

If your dog already eats a balanced, complete diet, there aren’t a lot of reasons to add a supplement to the nutritional lineup. In fact, there’s a chance that your dog is getting all the nutrients he needs with the dog food that you give him.

It’s also unclear whether dogs, like humans, actually need probiotics. While it’s not unsafe for your dog to consume them, it’s definitely worth consulting with your veterinarian to make sure that this is a smart choice for your pup in particular.

Scared the heck out of me when I saw what my husky was going through after I only served Pharaoh 1/4 of what was suggested. NON-STOP PURGING FOR 10 HOURS. PURGING FROM BOTH ENDS. I ended up bringing Pharaoh into his Vet immediately. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE WHAT IS TRULY IN THIS POWDER??? I want to have this powder broken down and diagnosed. UNBELIEVABLE.

Unsure if it hasn't caused some issues

June3, 2020

Our happily active and curious 7 yr old Shepherd mix started with a little scoop of powder each morning with her am meal. A month later she is sleeping more and seems down. Her legs have been hurting also. I think there is something to the review that noted mushrooms might be toxic for some dogs. She diesnt seem attracted to poo anymore and bad breath is gone, but shes a different dog now. We are taking her off it immediately.

Made my dog sick

April7, 2020

I have 2 long haired male Chihuahuas. One is almost 7 years and the other one is almost 3 years. I was a little concerned about giving this ProPowerPlus product to my doggies. The almost 3 year old has a sensitive stomach. Gave 1/4 scoop yo each dog. Directed dosage is 1/2 scoop for their size. Both are 5 lbs 7 oz. Both dogs sleep in our bed at night. In the middle of the night the younger dog vomited a large amount. He’s ok now that the product is out of his system. Now I have to pay for the returns ( they don’t tell you that when you buy it!!!) and pay yo have the comforter cover and comforter cleaned !!!!

Should have known better than to buy something from a fast talking New York veterinarian who is peddling his product from California.

I bought the ProPowerPlus to give to my 2 long haired chihuahua males. One male almost 7 years didn’t have any problems. But the younger doggie ( almost 3 years ) vomited a large amount in the middle of the night. He’s ok this morning. I was concerned about starting my dogs on this product. As they have sensitive stomachs ji stayed them on 1/4 a scoop instead of the directed 1/2 scoop. Don’t know what would have happened if I did the directed dosage. Also both dogs sleep in our bed, Now I have the added expense of getting the comforter cover and comforter cleaned. Be careful when buying this product. Returning

Im extremely upset and worried sick about my Chihuahua Bootsy I bought it because I wanted to do everything I could to make him as healthy as possible and since we have been using it he throws up like Everytime he eats now. I don't understand why you did not mention this in your long online infomercial because I would not have been so quick to use it .I'm so upset I praised you when I bought it to go to such great lengths for our dogs now I'm afraid and I didn't think I should have to pay for a expensive vet bill bet he got sick from using your product I'm stopping it immediately and calling your company tommorow in how to get a full refund and if he's ok after I stop it I'll be relieved if he's not I'm going to be highly upset and you will definitely hear back from me very upset and worried

Hi everyone, I'm Kat from Dr. Marty Pets and I wanted to check in to see how your pets were doing since leaving these reviews. I do my best to make sure I address all customer reviews on the internet in a timely manner so I do apologize for the delay in my response as I'm just seeing this website now. I'm very sorry to hear that you did not experience the results you were expecting to see in your dogs. Vomiting and diarrhea are not common side effects of ProPower Plus. As with all products, we do recommend that our customers their pet's veterinarian before starting them on any new product to ensure it's right for them. While we have hundreds of happy customers, we do understand that ProPower Plus may not be for all dogs, and this is why we honor our 90-Day Money Back Guarantee. Please reach out to me directly at [email protected] if you haven't received a full refund yet. Again, I'm so sorry about this frustrating experience. I look forward to assisting you.

I am in the same boat as you are Cathy and Kim. I did not know what to do except bring my husky into Dr Lupo . Pharaoh's Vet in Malibu. I purged non-stop. And THANK GOD I STARTED PHARAOH OFF ON ONLY 1/4 OF THE SUGGESTED INTAKE. Scared the heck out of me.

June 15, 2020

My dog have changed drastically. Before she would eat and vomit right after. She would be lethargic most of the time. Now she has so much energy and wants to eat everything. Her fur has also changed now it has a healthier appearance. I am so glad I bought this for my dog. Never stop making this. Thank you.
10/10 recommend

Totally cured my dog's constant farting. Haven't noticed any negative effects. On my third jar right now. He is an Australian Cattle Dog, if it makes any difference.

It appears that using your product has made our dog's life longer. Emma has kidney disease and an enlarged heart. Vet said she had weeks to live. We are going on 7 weeks since that diagnosis and she is acting like there are no problems.
