When was the last time you really took note of your dog and the way he is feeling?
Today with busy lives, sometimes we can overlook the small stuff. Reality is we are all busy, pushed for time and some things with our pets can be overlooked or ignored. This is where we come in. Vetcare Kaikoura can take care of one thing you don’t need to think about – your dog!
As winter fast approaches your trustee pooch could well be “slowing down”. To get him back on track and assessed by us is key. Let’s assess his arthritic changes, demeanour, gait and overall health.
Osteoarthritis is common in 1 of 5 dogs and most larger dogs over the age of 8 will be starting to show arthritic changes of some type. Not always can we see these with our own eyes as a dog owner.
If you suspect your dog is in intermittent pain from over exercise, slow to rise from resting or is starting to form a slight limp or gait change ask us about how 4CYTE Canine might be able to get him back on track.
What is 4CYTE Canine?
4CYTE is a daily oral granule containing Epiitalis, abalone, green lipped mussel and marine cartilage. The Epiitalis is a unique ingredient that stimulates (chondrocyte) cell proliferation in the synovial membrane. This is important because a healthy synovial inside the joint will improve weight bearing or reduce lameness and will ultimately assist the production of healthy cartilage slowing the degeneration of the joint. It also supresses the chemicals responsible for inflammation in the joint. This way, on a daily basis, your dog will be happier and pain free.
Prophylactic use of 4CYTE can also benefit your dog. 4CYTE may assist in the joints ability to function better under stress and may help symptoms associated with ageing joints in dogs.
4CYTE canine is a daily joint health program designed to:
· Address stiffness and lack of willingness to run, play, jump
· Support joint conditions in conjunction with other prescription pain medications
· Support healing following joint surgery or joint injury
· Improve and maintain healthy joints at any stage of life
· Boost the body’s ability to meet performance and recuperation demands on athletic or working dogs
· Targets the cause, not just the symptoms
Here at the clinic we can work with you to establish the best management program to ensure your dog is pain free over the winter months. Come in and see us about 4CYTE Canine for dogs today.
