ProMotion For Cats & Small Dogs
ProMotion is a palatable supplement with potent
antioxidants and joint nutrients to maintain your pet's joint health. Healthy
joints facilitate mobility and healthy cartilage provides shock absorption.
Joint health has a tremendous impact on the activity level and quality of life
of any dog or cat.
Possible causes for joint damage include injury, excess
body weight, aging, free radical damage, and genetic predisposition are all
possible causes for joint damage.
Free radicals are unstable molecules
produced during biological processes such as breathing and digestion. Free
radicals are also the result of environmental factors including injury or
infection. Once active, the free radical steals electrons from molecules in many
body tissues and cells. Free radical damage has been linked to many diseases
including arthritis. Joint tissue cells may be damaged by free radicals as your
pet gets older, which often explains the stiffness associated with aging.
Antioxidants remove or neutralize the
reactive free radical. Antioxidants benefit the joint tissues by providing
greater flexibility, strength and endurance. They may improve the immune
response and healing and may also reduce inflammation caused by free radicals.
Signs of joint damage include pain,
stiffness, difficulty rising or climbing stairs, and in severe cases, lameness,
are all signs that joint damage may be present.
All pets are at risk for joint disease. As many as 20%
of dogs over ONE year of age are affected. If your dog or cat is overweight or
growing older, they are especially at risk. Several breeds of dogs are
genetically predisposed to joint disease. Consult your veterinarian if you think
your dog or cat may be at risk.
Within the cycle of cartilage degradation,
there are two phases that contribute most to joint pain: 1) inflammation leading
to cartilage loss, and 2) decreased joint lubrication and nutrition. After the
initial insult to the joint, the body tries to fix itself. In the process, white
blood cells from the immune system release free radicals that cause further
damage and inflammation
In arthritic joints, the synovial fluid
and cartilage are broken down by free radicals, enzymes, and other substances.
The synovial fluid loses viscosity and its ability to provide nutrients to
cartilage is reduced. Cartilage then becomes brittle and weak. Undernourished
joint cells (chondrocytes), which make up the cartilage, cluster and die, and
the resulting disruption in joint cell activity initiates degeneration and
inflammation. The affected animal experiences pain, stiffness, and eventually
ProMotion can be used as a preventative in breeds that
are predisposed to joint problems or in pets that are becoming older. ProMotion
can also be used to support recovery after an injury or surgery. Any pet
experiencing joint discomfort may benefit from the effects of ProMotion, and
it's safe for long-term use when used as directed. Your veterinarian can
diagnose your pet's problems and advise you if ProMotion can help.
According to a study of dogs, 50% showed signs of
improvement within just 10 days of taking ProMotion. In some cases, significant
improvement may not be seen for 3-4 weeks.
Adverse Reactions: 2% or fewer
dogs experience mild gastrointestinal upset from glucosamine supplementation,
one of the ingredients in ProMotion. In these dogs, Proanthozone is a good
