Hyvitality™ - Info on Dietary Supplement for Shar-Pei Health

posted: by: Wurtsboro Veterinary Clinic Tags: "Clinic Specials" "News" 

HyVitality™:  contains a mixture of specifically selected vitamins, minerals, and plant derivatives formulated by Dr. Tintle and recommended:
1) as an aid in supporting health of Shar-Pei dogs with hyaluronosis (excess mucin and wrinkles), particularly in dogs with the autoinflammatory condition Familial Shar-Pei Fever (FSF)
2) as an aid in supporting health in dogs with chronic inflammation including chronic skin disease, musculoskeletal joint pain, and/or immune-mediated diseases
3) to aid in supporting the treatment of cutaneous vesicular mucinosis, swollen hock syndrome, lymphangitis and lymphedema
4) to aid in supporting the treatment of early stage reactive systemic amyloidosis

HyVitality contains magnesium, methylcobalamin, antioxidant and many other hyaluronan (HA) health promoting effects.  Magnesium is integral to stabilizing HA in its high molecular form and magnesium deficiency is a very common finding in the breed.  Severe cobalamin (Vitamin B12) deficiency is also common in Shar-Pei.  HyVitality is a formulation of recommended vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals. It had proved difficult for clients to purchase the correct canine dosages using OTC human supplement products and working with a trusted manufacturer has allowed Dr. Linda Tintle to be assured of purity and quality. HyVitality is dosed by weight. (Average Shar-Pei dose contains 50-80mg Alpha Lipoic Acid,  60mg Coenzyme Q10, 100-200mg Magnesium citrate, 1000 mcg Methylcobalamin, 25mcg Vitamin K2, and a proprietary blend of curcumin, Diosmin, Boswellia Serrata, and trans-Resveratrol).

The HyVitality website should be open soon for online ordering but until then, the product is available by calling 845-888-4884 for pricing and shipping information.

A consultation and examination by a veterinarian is recommended prior to using this product.  Product should be used in diabetic dogs or those with advanced kidney disease only under the close supervision of a veterinarian with careful monitoring.  HyVitality may decrease the need for other anti-inflammatory medications.  Do not stop medication abruptly without consultation with your veterinarian.
