Knowing which joint supplement is best recommended for your patients can feel overwhelming. There is so much information out there about any dietary supplement - and lots of misinformation to boot.
So how do you choose?
Understanding the pros and cons of each supplement is critical to your decision-making process—as is access to studies that support it.
As a brand, we take a stand against misinformation and pseudoscience. We want to educate pet owners, veterinarians, and animal health professionals so you can make the best decisions for your pets and patients.
But what is Antinol® and how is it different from other joint supplements on the market?
What is Antinol®?
Antinol® is a super-potent, natural joint supplement that is life-changing for dogs and cats.
Each tiny capsule is made from a proprietary blend of marine lipid oils containing a unique ingredient, PCSO-524. PCSO-524 is fully traceable and sustainably sourced. It is extracted from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) and contains 91 fatty acids, including EPA, DHA, ETA and OTA.
Up to 90% of pet owners noticed a difference in their pet's mobility when using Antinol®.
But what makes it different from other pet supplements?
Let's find out!
When a dietary supplement has rigorous, product- and species-specific clinical evidence behind it, you should assume that the brand is able to produce it for you to read.
While local regulations may affect how a nutritional supplement company can make clinical claims or share information, published and peer-reviewed information is publicly available. That means the company should be able to get you the references that support their product, or at least direct you to a scientific search engine like Pubmed forward so that you can find yourself.
For many dietary supplements, studies are not readily available and are often kept as "data on file" with no peer-reviewed evidence or species-specific safety studies available. Ask your supplier for their reference list - there is no stopping them from providing you with their evidence-based research.
Antinol® has over 15 peer-reviewed, featured and public studies, over 30 case studies and species-specific safety studies. All are publicly available at www.antinolstudies.com .
Clinical evidence supporting many ingredients in joint supplements shows mixed results. Glucosamine and chondroitin are popular, but there is very little evidence that they are clinically effective. Others have very low bioavailability, making them ineffective in the body.
Antinol® contains PCSO-524, a clinically proven, stabilized marine lipid from green-lipped mussels. It is a highly bioavailable, potent blend of fatty acids produced using a unique extraction process. Green lipped mussel powder is a waste product of this extraction process with a very low lipid content and is sold as a good source of protein for various pet food products. It can even be used as a base ingredient for other GLM-based supplements.
Most mobility supplements require doubling the continuous feeding amount for the first few weeks. This is important for the nutrients in the supplement to accumulate in the body and be effective. Convincing your customers (and their pets) to do this can be a challenge, especially when the initial feeding period is 4-6 weeks. It can be logistically difficult if the patient is unenthusiastic and potentially very expensive.
The concentrated Antinol® formula only requires your customers to feed twice as much in the first two weeks. Not only that, a starter pack will help you along the way. Easy.
Plus, it's a tiny capsule and tasty too, so your pets will happily eat it as a treat or in their food.
Canine Kidney Disease
Many supplements are contraindicated in the case of canine kidney disease, making supplement choice difficult for your elderly patients. Antinol®, on the other hand, is a safe dietary supplement for dogs with kidney disease.
support of the veterinary clinic
It's frustrating to recommend a product to your customers when you know they'll leave the clinic and buy it elsewhere, as the brand operates a dual strategy for veterinary clinics and retail. You lose to the retailers.
Here at VetzPetz we understand how frustrating that is. Instead, we have a dedicated business model that recognizes the expertise and. You'll be backed with a 'Mobility Fund' for every online purchase at de.antinol.eu, plus we offer exclusive promotions and CPD opportunities to support you as a professional.
