Vetri-Disc by Vetri-Science - For Dogs with Back Pain
Vetri-Disc is widely recommended for dogs with back pain or spinal injury, arthritis, slipped discs, and spondylosis. The ingredients have been selected for their positive effects on the connective tissues associated with the spine.
Bovine Tracheal Cartilage is a rich source of chondroitin sulfates which make up the connective tissue matrix and are found in high concentration in the spinal and invertebrate disc tissues.
Amino acids like serine link the glycosaminoglycan structure to connective tissue proteins. Taurine, another amino acid is involved in the synthesis of connective tissue.
Zinc is necessary for tissue respiration and is important in the body's healing process.
Vitamins C supports collagen production and Vitamin D supports calcium absorption.
Each bottle contains 180 capsules.
I have 4 dachsunds, two of which have had back surgery. My oldest one was in terrible pain last September and showed some early signs of paralysis. I thought this time I would have to put him down as a second surgery was not an option. I put him on Vetri Disc Back support, Fish Oil, and Turmeric and after about two weeks I started noticing a difference. The fish oil and turmeric are good for the symptoms, but I believe the Vetri-Disc that did the healing. He is up running around and back to normal. I have all 4 dogs on the Vetri-Disc.Reviewed by: (Verified Buyer) Darin Gilligan from Burleson, TX. on 6/27/2017
Active Ingredients Per Capsule:
Bovine Tracheal Cartilage (Source of Chondroitin-4-and-6-Sulfates) - 200 mg
Bovine tracheal cartilage is rich in chondroitin sulfates which make up the matrix of connective tissue and are found in high concentration in the tissue of the spine and intervertebral discs.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) - 100 mg
Vitamin C supports collagen production and glycosaminoglycan metabolism.
Pectin - 100 mg
L-Taurine - 50 mg
Taurine is a sulfur containing amino acid involved in the synthesis of connective tissue.
Manganese (as Manganese Sulfate) - 30 mg
Manganese is necessary for the activation of enzymes that are vital for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans.
L-Serine - 30 mg
Serine is an amino acid which links the glycosaminoglycans structure to the protein portion of connective tissue.
Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate, Calcium Ascorbate) - 25 mg
Calcium is essential for proper growth and maintenance of bone.
Equisetum arvense - 10 mg
Equisetum arvense is a natural source of silicon which is necessary for the synthesis and integrity of connective tissue.
Magnesium (as Magnesium Sulfate) - 10 mg
Magnesium helps aid bone growth and the assimilation of calcium and potassium. Magnesium also plays an important role in neuromuscular contractions (relaxes the muscles).
Pyridoxine HCl (Vitamin B6) - 10 mg
Vitamin B6 is necessary for the formation of certain proteins and aids in nerve function.
Potassium (as Potassium Citrate) - 9.5 mg
Pepsin - 5 mg
Zinc (as Zinc Sulfate) - 1.8 mg
Zinc is necessary for tissue respiration and is important in the healing process.
Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) - 30 IU
Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract and in the breakdown and assimilation of phosphorous.
Inactive Ingredient: gelatin, rice flour.
