The Antinol experience is all about helping make petz great again, here's Monty's story.
It's a common misconception that osteoarthritis is just a gray coat problem. However, referral data suggests that approximately 1 in 5 dogs (regardless of age) are affected by OA.
“At about the age of 4, Monty began limping for no apparent reason. He hadn't suffered any injury, the limp was coming on slowly and getting worse and nothing seemed to work. Eventually he was referred to a specialist. At 7 years old it was so bad that a possible elbow replacement was suggested. By the age of 8 he was so stiff that we had no choice but to proceed with the procedure. "
Total elbow replacement (TER) is a procedure for animals that have failed to respond to standard comfort management and therapies. Therefore, it is not generally a first reaction to OA. TER is an advanced surgical procedure and should only be performed by experienced orthopedic surgeons.
“Monty's prosthetic elbow recovery took over 6 months with a combination of rehabilitation treatments including heat therapy. Immediately after the operation he could not walk and even 6 months after the operation he was still quite weak. So it was suggested adding Antinol to his recovery routine."
Antinol® is a natural joint support dietary supplement containing PCSO-524®. The concentrated formula supports the natural anti-inflammatory effect of the body's metabolism and thus contributes to keeping the joints healthy and mobility. When taken daily, it can help a dog maintain an active lifestyle and support joint metabolism.
"Monty turned 12 in March, we are watching his movements as he gets older. But I'm amazed at how much Antinol has helped my Monty and these days he's walking much better than he was 8 years ago! Monty is a very sociable dog, we live on the coast and he loves nothing more than walking on the beach and sunbathing in his favorite spot while waiting for people to come by and say 'hello' He was always a good boy but these days he's got that Drang to chase after a girl occasionally - totally normal! Last week he ran all the way to the Walmer Flats to pursue a romance; that's a good walk from where we live!"
