Petifort - Large
Advanced animal joint formula
A leading-edge formulation using the latest scientific research available, Petifort works to increase your pet’s overall mobility and quality of life.
CAT, DOG & ANIMAL JOINT HEALTH
Joint stiffness is not just specific to people. Many cats, dogs and other pets suffer from joint problems too. Joint stiffness and mobility is one of the most common ailments seen in middle-aged to older pets. Even younger pets, under certain circumstances, can suffer from poor joint health.
Joint health often deteriorates slowly, so it can be difficult to notice the changes in your animal over time. Often too, pet owners may associate behaviour changes in their pet with normal aging, when in fact, the animal might be decreasing his/her activity level because of their stiff joints. Signs of joint problems in pets can include limping, difficulty moving, tiredness, irritability, muscle wasting, and the licking, chewing and biting of affected joints. Your pet may also begin to avoid certain things they would normally do such as being hesitant to jump up and down from heights, groom less, be tentative to climb stairs, play less and spend more time sleeping.
Just like people that use dietary supplements to support their joint health, animals too can benefit greatly from the right supplements being included in their diet. The right supplement is from a trusted brand like Puraz that uses scientifically studied ingredients at the right doses.
WHY USE AN ANIMAL JOINT SUPPLEMENT?
Pets like humans also lose collagen as they age, resulting in stiff joints. It makes sense to use a supplement like Puraz Petifort to nourish and lubricate your pet's elderly joints or use as a preventative for younger active pets.

HOW DOES PETIFORT WORK?
Petifort gets to work by supporting your pet’s cartilage and joints. It contains the following ingredients:
Petifort contains specially optimized bioactive collagen peptides to support your pet’s cartilage health. Scientific studies have shown these collagen peptides provide the nutrients the cartilage cells need to produce collagen and proteoglycans. These two substances represent some 90% of the cartilage mass. The collagen nourishes the joints, and healthy cartilage to support strong, healthy joints. It also supports the mobility your pet needs to remain active and enjoy a quality of life.
Petifort contains New Zealand green-lipped mussel extract (GLM). GLM is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chondroitin and glycosaminoglycans, which act as a lubricant and shock absorber within the joint. These nutrients make up 95% of the proteoglycans required for connective tissue such as tendons and cartilage. There is a multitude of studies showing GLM’s effectiveness in supporting joint health in animals. The specific extract used in Petifort contains the very best New Zealand GLM. It is processed from selected live green-shell mussel meat and freeze dried at low temperatures to ensure bio-activity is optimized.
Petifort also contains a special form of hyaluronic acid (HA) to support joint lubrication and cartilage hydration. HA is essential for the health of the synovial fluid which supports the bones and joints. HA helps to cushion nerves and ends of bones. Research shows that healthy cartilage has high levels of HA. Although your pet naturally produces its own HA, it also breaks down with age and gradually becomes unable to cushion the joint cartilage. This triggers depletion of the cartilage around the joints and may lead to stiffness and joint immobility. Petifort works to support your pet’s joint lubrication, mobility and cartilage health by providing the recommended daily dose of HA.
Vitamin C is necessary for cartilage formation and maintenance and also acts as an antioxidant. Although dogs and cats do produce their own vitamin C, this ability diminishes as they age. Vitamin C is not only an essential nutrient for overall health and wellbeing, it is vital for collagen synthesis. It supports optimum collagen absorption, and without it the body cannot make collagen.
Manganese is a trace mineral that has an important role in bone and cartilage development. It has the ability to support essential enzymes that build cartilage. These enzymes are essential for cartilage formation.
Boron helps to build and maintain healthy bones. Found in highest concentrations in bones, boron is a trace mineral that acts as a coordinator for the other major bone-builders.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is widely regarded in scientific communities as a potentially powerful antioxidant. Easily absorbed and a mineral that is low in New Zealand soils, selenium helps to support and protect cartilage whilst also providing your pet with an overall powerful antioxidant to maintain positive joint health.
