Benji, Yorkshire Terrier

"My name is Benji. I am 14 year old Yorkshire Terrier and a few years ago I started have episodes where I couldn't catch my breath. My owners took me to the vet and were told it was a collapsing trachea. My owners do not like pharmaceutical medications so they did a web search and found you. They ordered for me the Ultra-Flex Collagen For Pets. After about a month my symptoms were gone. I have only had a couple of episodes and that has been on very cold days. Thank you for providing this wonderful product because I was very scared when not being able to catch my breath."

Piper, Morkie

"I just wanted to take time to thank you for your wonderful products. My 6 year old Morkie, Piper, was starting to suffer from several symptoms of collapsed trachea and I was getting really nervous. One night I researched online and found your products and client testimonials so I purchased the Ultra-Flex Collagen and Power Probiotic. Within just a couple of the days of use almost all of her symptoms had subsided. I plan to purchase some additional products you recommend for collapsed trachea but wanted to let you know that I am amazed and truly grateful for your products - they work!!!"

Zoe, Pom Mix

"My beautiful, sweet, soon-to-be 13 year old "baby" girl Zoe is thriving thanks to Ask Ariel supplements. She was diagnosed with a kidney issue over a year ago and today her numbers improved and she is enjoying life. She is my fierce loyal companion. Thanks to Ask Ariel I am sure we will have many more years of memories together. Thank you for giving us both renewed hope!"

Products used: Power Probiotic, Kidney Health Protein Support, Ultra-Flex, Purrfect Pet CoQ10.

"This is Buster, adopted from my local shelter 6 years ago. He has a collapsing trachea, so I’ve been giving him Ultra-Flex Collagen, Soothing Digestive Relief, Gastro-ULC and Power Probiotic for about the last 6 months. He has had great relief from his symptoms and the vet said his breathing sounds better than it did 6 months ago! His intermittent diarrhea is no longer a problem either...I’m very pleased with how well these products are supporting Buster’s health. Buster also uses Ultra-flex Collagen, Power Probiotic and Lypozyme for his digestion and collapsing trachea; he is doing so much better since we started with these products!"

Chip and Princess, Italian Greyhounds

"Here is a picture of our two Italian Greyhounds Chip (on the left) and Princess who are nearly 12 years old. Chip has collapsed trachea but we have been giving him Ultraflex Collagen Support consistently for over a year which has helped calm the horrible, honking cough he had previously. He still has days when he coughs but it is no longer the coughing that sounds like a goose."

Sharon, VA


"I am very happy with your products. In 2016, Bianca had her teeth cleaned and it caused partial damage to her trachea. It was so bad that the medicine they put her on wasn't helping. That's when someone from Facebook told me about your company and your Ultraflex Collagen Product. It worked miracles for Bianca and she was able to get off the other medicine. In 2018, she developed kidney disease. I purchased your Kidney Health and Bianca was tested again and her kidney function has improved. That is amazing! I am so grateful for your company and knowledge."

Beau, Yorkie Mix

"Beau is a Yorkie mix rescue, who came into our family one year ago. He was half blind, with dry skin issues, and recently tore his ACL. We put him on Amazing Omegas and Ultra Flex joint supplements. Beau's skin is 100 percent better, with the shiniest of coats, and he is recovering nicely from his ACL tear without surgery! We swear by your products, and you have a loyal customer for life!"

13 Yr. Old Maltese Collapsed Trachea

My 13 yr old maltese has been struggling with a dry cough and passing out due to her collapsing trachea. I got UltraFlex, and I can not believe it, 3rd day, no coughing or passing out. It is truly a miracle, and I am a customer for the rest of her life. Thank you so much, she is my fur baby."

Tango, Yorkie

"I just wanted to thank you for your help and tell you that Ultraflex is a real winner. I noticed my 10 year old Yorkie Tango was breathing differently like he was congested, particularly when he slept at night (and he sleeps with us, so I can hear him). I read about how older Yorkies have a tendency towards trachea issues. I started Tango on the Ultraflex Collagen Support and the whole breathing situation has COMPLETELY cleared up and he is breathing very comfortably. Also, Tango will be 10 years old this October, and he is showing signs of arthritis … a little limping, resisting exercise, not that enthused about walks….. the Ultraflex has significantly helped with the limping too. He has more energy and limps less and throws his ball and engages and plays more. Now, glucosamine has not always agreed with Tango. He often reacts with soft stool and intolerance. So the Ultraflex is a good option for him in terms of joint support. Finally, another benefit of the Ultraflex is I believe it helped to firm up his stools, so collagen helps IBS in some way too."

Sprocket, Pomeranian

"When she was four years old, Sprocket was diagnosed with Microvascular Liver Dysplasia which was not correctable through surgery, and we were told she would only live maybe two more years. We were very concerned about how to give her a good quality of life. We wanted to use natural treatments as much as possible and found Ask Ariel. Ask Ariel provided us with a diet suggestion and supplements that have kept Sprocket going strong. It is now 8 years that we have been following this regimen for Sprocket and it has been wonderful to see how well she is doing. The Ask Ariel supplements we have given her for liver support are: Kidney Health (as well as another liver support supplement from the vet) and fish oil. As she got older and started limping, we started her on Curcumin for Pets, Arthrosoothe and Ultra-Flex for her collapsing trachea. Sprocket is feeling well and we are so happy we took this holistic approach. We sincerely believe that Sprocket has the looks and life that she does due to her diet and supplements from Ask Ariel."

UPDATE: "A few years after we’d been giving Sprocket her supplements from Ask Ariel, Sprocket found, and ate, some rat poison at a ranch. The vet said that her diet helped push it through her system and that no doubt, the supplements that she was taking, helped. Although she did have to take medication for the poison, I am certain that her supplement regimen was helpful in keeping her healthy and safe from the medication. A few months later when she had her liver enzymes tested, after the results came in, her vet said: 'If I didn’t know otherwise, I would say that this is a normal healthy dog.' You can only imagine our relief and happiness at hearing that news, and we have Ask Ariel to thank for helping Sprocket live a healthy life."

Daisy and Precious

“My dog Holly passed on from a collapsed trachea. I heard about your supplement (for collapsed trachea) about two weeks after she died to my dismay. She had a full blood work done when she started coughing and it came back wonderful due to the supplements she was on (for liver disease). They were amazed! Well my other dog Daisy... has always gagged after drinking and recently started coughing occasionally when she lies down. It shook me up because that is how Holly started a year ago. I immediately purchased your ultra-flex collagen. She has been taking it for a few weeks now and I noticed she doesn't gag anymore. Listen she has been gagging each time she drank for 2 1/2 years and now she isn't. It is very hard for me not to think I could have saved Holly if I had only known, but I am happy I've found ultra-flex collagen for Daisy. I want to thank you again for another great product!”
