Dynamite customer Angel Wintrode is the President and founder of a nonprofit organization in Missouri called the Bi-State Wildlife Hotline, Inc. They are a 24-hour public resource hotline that handles wildlife conflicts, concerns, and sick or orphaned wildlife in need of rescue and rehab. She shared with us how incorporating Dyna Pro into daily feedings helps her to save countless precious little furry lives. Often times, these animals are left alone, without their mother’s care, a few days after being born. Their only chance for survival is the love and care of Angel’s team of around-the-clock volunteers. Angel’s work with orphaned wildlife encompasses Dynamite’s mission – caring for the Earth and all that live on it. Without her hard work and dedication, most of these baby animals would never have their fair shot at a healthy life.

To put it simply, we are the 911 for wildlife; except that we are also the fire department (that cuts the patient out of the wreckage), the ambulance (that races them to the hospital), and the hospital (that treats the patient until they are well or old enough to be released back into the wild).
Years and years ago, one of our volunteers (we are 100% volunteers) let us know that her horses were doing really well on a ‘prebiotic’ product called Dyna Pro, and she recommended that we try it on the wildlife that we work with. Many of the wild patients that we care for come into our facilities weighing less than 1 pound, and sometimes [are] only days old when they lose their mothers.
As we all know, there is no replacement for mother’s milk, but we try. Once we start formula feeding we begin to run into gastrointestinal problems and diarrhea. With babies this small that leads to death in a matter of hours. That was before we found Dyna Pro. It might be [labeled] for horses but it works on EVERYTHING–wild and domestic! We know you are aware of the dogs, cats, and horses that your products help save, but I wanted you to know how much Dyna Pro has meant to us in wildlife rehab. It’s the difference in a baby fox surviving after losing his mother and siblings, enduring the stress of that plus captivity, and [having to digest] a new formula that doesn’t compare to mom, ultimately thriving and allowing for his release back to the wild. Many of our babies would have died without your product.
EVERY single species here gets 1cc of Dyna Pro added to 1 cup of their formula. We’ve been doing it that way for years before anyone knew what a prebiotic was. We would never switch to anything else!
Angel told us that this non-profit organization is run entirely by a staff of volunteers that cater to a variety of animals and they are always financially strapped.
