Difference between Elk and Deer Antler

Deer and Elk Velvet Antler are very similar in many ways.  Elk (Cervus canadensis) is the largest of the deer species.    The weight and size of an Elk antler can be up to 1/3 larger than their deer cousin.  The velvet from both animals is similar in active ingredients and mineral content and both have been recognized in traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years for vitality, energy and inflammation.  Regardless of whether the supplement you chose is sourced from Elk or Deer, the vital information is in the processing of the velvet and quality of the final product.  CanEVA elk velvet antler is freeze-dried to GMP standards, all batch and lots are tested to certificate of analysis and all Elk herds processed under CanEVA are controlled, registered and under the care of veterinarians.   

We encourage you stay informed on the supply chain, quality and manufacturing of any natural supplement you take.  We stand behind our purity and our potency.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  As we sit down to dinner with the family to celebrate this holiday it is important to recognize, that even though our four legged family friends love to join in on all things family, inviting them to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is not the bet thing for them!

Pet Wellness Month!

So much is going on in October regarding pets and the people who love them!  This month is recognized as pet wellness month.  The health of your pets is important not just for your dog or cat, but also for you!  The primary two things you can do for your pet’s health is diet and exercise.  A recognized nutritious diet with the required nutrients goes a long way to keeping your pet healthy.  Read the labels and look for the calories, proteins and grain content.  Your pet can’t read…but you can!  The more exercise you and your pet get, the better you will be.  No matter what size of dog you have, a good walk, ball chasing, playing games and agility are all important.  Don’t forget that house cats need exercise too.  Spend time with a feather, a lure on a stick or a catnip toy and get your cat moving.  For older pets who are having difficulty with mobility due to joint pain or injury try CanEVA Pet to keep your 4-legged friends in step with nature.

Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and we encourage anyone looking to add a 4-legged family member to consider adopting a dog or cat from your local humane society or shelter.  There are many benefits to adopting a dog or cat versus buying a kitten or puppy.  These include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Animals tend to be older and therefore house trained, socialized and mature in size
  • Often they are already spayed or neutered – a great benefit to you, and a saved expense further down the line
  • The dog or cat has more often then not, already reached their full size – this is often why some dogs end up in a shelter in the first place.  All puppies are adorable when they are little, and people often don’t realize how big and how boisterous a puppy may get as an adult.
  • Experienced workers at the shelter have a grasp on the animal’s personality and who would best fit in with your family.  This is a great bonus, as you get an idea of how this pet will fit with your lifestyle, your family and your time commitment.  Shelter workers know if the dog likes children, gets along with other pets, level of exercise and physical needs.

CanEVA supports the tireless and energetic efforts of all the staff, trainers and vets who work at shelters and dog rescues.  Check out the science behind CanEVA to see how our product can help your rescue dog or cat maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.

Can I Give this Product to My Pets?

by Clinton Balok, DVM

The following article appears in Velvet Antler – A Gift From Nature by Cindy Ewashkiw & Marion Allen Ph.D., R.N.

In today’s society, pets have become an integral part of the family structure. Because of the importance of pets, owners have become very conscientious about the health and quality of life of those pets. With the average person far outliving their pets, the want for health and longevity of the family pet is certainly understandable.

Canada Day / Independence Day Caneva Sale


More pets disappear during this week-end then any other time of the year!  People may love the visual and audio celebration of fireworks but cats and dogs have no idea what is going on and instinctively run and hide from loud noise and vibrant lights in the sky.  If you think your dog is going to enjoy a BBQ sausage and a twilight display…think again!  The best thing you can do for your pets on the eve of July 1 or July 4th is ensure they are safely secured in an area they are familiar and happy with,  all windows and doors securely locked.  If you are home with your dog and his anxiety increases try shutting the curtains, turning up the music and act calm as if nothing is happening.  If the condition increases try a Thundershirt.  www.thundershirt.com

Happy Birthday Garfield!!!

If you are over 40 you remember the antics of Garfield the cat, his human Jon Arbuckle and Odie the dog.  Jim Davis created this iconic cat in 1978 and held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip. Common themes in the strip include Garfield’s laziness, obsessive eating, coffee, and disdain of Mondays and diets. Cat lovers all over the world fell in love with the orange tabby with the bad attitude so much so, that June 19th is Garfield Day!
