Suitable for dogs aged 6 months and over.
- Turkey Tail is a mushroom that grows on dead logs all around the world. Its Latin name is Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor. Versicolor means of many colors. And that’s because Turkey Tail has colored rings that look a lot like the tail of a turkey. In Japan, Turkey Tail is called kawaratake, which means cloud mushroom. There are quite a few strains of Trametes, but Turkey Tail in particular is of interest to scientists and herbalists. Turkey Tail has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to reduce phlegm, clear dampness, increase energy and support the immune system. In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s called Yun Zhi.
- Chaga grows naturally on birch trees. That's why they grow their Chaga mushrooms sustainably, on native materials. Research suggests Chaga may be able to help regulate and support the production of cytokines, which are essential to the immune system ... and a good immune system can help fight off infection and disease.
- Cordyceps are full of antioxidants. Cordyceps are known to help support physical performance and may support a healthy heart.
- Phellinus Korea has done a lot of research showing Phellinus is a potent immune modulating mushroom. It is used to stimulate the immune system and protect against illness.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are most mushroom products not really mushrooms? Mushrooms contain what's called the "fruiting body" (the part of the mushroom most people would recognize) and "mycelium", the part that grows underground or inside the plant. Mycelium is like the the roots of the mushroom. Nearly all mushroom products are mycelium and not the actual mushroom. They're grown in a lab on sterilized grains (such as rice, sorghum or oats) and ground into a powder. Mycelium products are not rich in beta-glucans like real mushrooms are. Beta-gulcans are the active compounds in mushrooms. Fruiting bodies are full spectrum and also offer more vitamins and minerals. If you're not getting a real mushroom product then your dog is not getting all of the health benefits.
How are Four Leaf Rover Mushrooms grown?: All of our mushrooms are grown on wood, the way nature intended. This ensures that the important medicinal compounds are in the mushrooms. Grown in greenhouses, our mushrooms receive a constant flow of fresh air and water, along with natural sunlight. Every mushroom is tested for chemicals or contamination.
Why are your mushrooms water extracted and not dried: Fruiting bodies require hot water extraction to break down the chitin in the cell walls. Dogs and humans lack the enzyme to do this, so extraction is necessary to get all the nutrients from the fruiting body. Extraction pulls out the beta-glucans. The extraction is then purified and dried into a powder with all the beneficial mushroom parts intact.
Can I give my dog mushrooms more than once a day? If your dog doesn't have any health challenges, once a day should be enough. But if your dog is fighting an illness, you can give mushrooms twice daily.
Can I give Turkey Tail with the Immunity mushroom blend?: While the Immunity 7 mushroom blend contains Turkey Tail mushroom, you can add Turkey Tail once or twice daily for additional immune benefits.
How you you ensure the mushrooms are high quality: Every batch of mushrooms is checked for bacteria, heavy metals and pesticides. The mushroom extracts are then tested for beta-glucan content to make sure the mushrooms are truly medicinal. Four Leaf Rover mushrooms are certified organic, and free from heavy metals and pesticides. No mycelium, no grains and no starch ever.
