Introducing Tracy Flower

Tracy has successfully competed in agility for 19 years & also has previously competed in Working Trails with her now departed dog Bronte.  In 2014 she had a fantastic year competing and achieved the goals she set herself at the beginning of the year. (Ed. Goal-setting, something we could all adopt!)


There is definitely a theme to Tracy’s agility dogs.  She currently has three competing merlie girlies with nice girly names beginning with ‘B’ & Tracy herself always wears her trademark pink at shows.

Barbie the 8 year old won her first Champ class in July so qualified for Crufts 2015 & will also appear in the Crufts Singles (Large) class that features the top 16 qualifying dogs in the country. Ballet, now 5 years old, also qualified for the Crufts Singles (Medium) and for the British Open (Medium) at Crufts 2015 against very stiff competition at the KCIF; she also gained her reserve ticket at Champ level at Dogs in Need in August. The baby of the family Bikini is two and gained her first two agility wins in September at Southdowns Show in Grade 3 Jumping and Agility. At Gillingham Bikini gained a second place on a very testing grade 3-5 agility course, I remember running it myself.  As a result of the wins Bikini goes from Grade 3 to Grade 4 & no doubt will soon join her ‘sisters’ at the higher levels.

“I have been giving Ace Canine Flex Granules to my three agility dogs, Barbie, Ballet and Bikini for a few years now. I am really thrilled with how well, fit and healthy they are and also with their agility performances.”

MDR-1 Gene (Multi Drug Resistant-1 Gene)

Some of you may already know that there is a gene disorder that affects many herding breeds such as Border Collies and Shelties which means they shouldn’t have worming tablets containing Ivermectin.

If you have a herding breed dog you may think that you will just avoid those wormers and perhaps use something different. However, what you may not realise, is that there are many other drugs (including anaesthetic drugs) that are also a problem in dogs affected by or carriers of the mutant gene.  

It is possible, through an easy cheek swab DNA test, to find out if your dog is Clear, a Carrier or Affected by the gene mutation.  I recently did this for my youngest collie, Bikini after one of her litter mates died at 2 years old after a routine spay. My vet suggested I have her tested in case this was a factor in what happened

Bikini tested Clear and I’m very relieved about it. I plan on doing the other girls too now.

I used the service provided by Animal Health Trust (AHT). It cost me £60 and I did the ordering of the test kit online and then posted it back to them.  I received the results 6 days later by email.  There are other labs that also provide this service or you can go to your vets for a blood test if you prefer.

Recently the Kennel Club started a database of results of dogs tested for this gene defect. This will help breeders choose a suitable sire/dam for mating so that fewer pups that are affected or carriers are born in the future.

There is lots more information available on the Internet on this subject, I’ve just given a brief out-line  here.

Great company very helpful and knowledgeable. After a long chat on the phone I placed an order just before Christmas and it arrived next day. My 2 labradors love the Flex sprinkle and are showing signs of the benefits by moving more freely. Just placed my second order.

You can't beat the best.
My little papillon has been on the Flex Jointcare for a number of years due to various life-long joint and ligament problems. Just recently it was really to prove its worth to me all over again! Buddy has been pretty poorly over a number of months and despite a CT scan nothing conclusive could be found. He was on pretty heavy drugs which I have now weaned him off and onto a natural oil. He was doing really well but then out of the blue started to show signs of distress! Realised that due to him not wanting to eat when he was poorly he had missed out on his Flex Sprinkle for nearly a month! Immediately started him back on a half dose to restart the routine he has been on for a number of years, and to which I have no doubts I owe the fact he is now approaching his 11th birthday and is still with me. Literally within 3 days my little Buddy started to perk up again, and now a week down the line and now back on his full dose of Flex Sprinkle, I have my adored bouncing Buddy back to his old self. I honestly cannot thank Ace-Canine enough for producing this miracle in a tub. I have recommended to so many friends, I have lost count.

I've used Ace-Canine's Flex Sprinkle for my Goldie for years; ensuring she stays as supple and mobile as possible.
From ordering to delivery, within 24 hrs!!! Excellent service.

Instant relief for our dog
Our 11 years old Keeshond started having joint issues and has an early stage of cataract. I contacted Ace Canine through their social media, asked for more information on which medication was best for our dog. Not only were they very helpful, I also got a discount code.
Our dog is relieving through her medication although if it's not given on time, she can relapse with fatigue and limping.
I've been giving her Clarifye for her cataract 4 times a day for a month, I think it helps but can't really tell for sure, also no changes on her eyes discolouration.
She's also taking Trimega as a multivitamin, Flex Celadrin and Flex Sprinkle Joincare. Now this combo has made a huge change on her overall health. She's back to being playful, even runs, seems more happy and has good appetite.
I used to give her as well Plaque Away, that definitely worked especially with foul breath but I stopped it as I didn't want to overload her with supplements.
All in all, would highly recommend Ace Canine products, it sure works on our dog.

Flex Celadrin
I bought the Flex Celadrin capsules as one of my older dogs was suffering with his back legs. Have to say it seems to have made a great difference in his walking now. Much better to use this then the injection he was getting every 6 months. I will definitely continue to use these capsules. Thank you.

Flex Sprinkle Jointcare
Literally a miracle in a pot, our 16 year old staffy has a spring in his step and is moving about a lot more easier. Fantastic results, the loading dose has literally given him a new lease of life within 48 hours. We will be putting our 8 year old on it next. Amazing product that I wish we had known about sooner.

Clarifye Eye Drops
Excellent product - Clarifye. Has made an amazing improvement in my jack russells cataracts already even when she is 16 years old. It has given her a quality of life back and she is much happier in herself and enjoying her walks again. She can now see much longer distances and manages well in the dark.Product arrived promptly and well packaged. Thank you Ace Canine!!
