Description

VetriScience Laboratories’ Vetri-Disc combines bovine tracheal cartilage with amino acids, mineral sulfates, vitamins, pepsin, and natural silicon sources all necessary for the support and maintenance of connective tissue. Bovine tracheal cartilage is a rich source of chondroitin sulfates which make up the connective tissue matrix and are found in an especially high concentration in the spinal and invertebrate disc tissues.

Other nutrients like taurine and equisetum arvense are necessary for the synthesis of connective tissue, while minerals like calcium and magnesium support bone growth and maintenance. Zinc is necessary for tissue respiration and is also important in the body’s healing process. Amino acids like serine link the glycosaminoglycan structure to connective tissue proteins, and vitamins C and D support collagen production and calcium absorption, respectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your products made?

VetriScience® products are manufactured in the United States. However, we source the raw material for our products from both inside and outside the United States. Our raw material suppliers acquire high quality ingredients from all over the world. Depending on our needs and current market supplies, a particular raw material may be from one country in one batch, and from another country in another batch. For our raw materials, we require a Certificate of Analysis, which documents the quality, purity, and potency. This qualifies each raw material before accepting it for production. Our parent company - FoodScience® Corporation - is certified to operate under current Good Manufacturing Processes (cGMP) protocols. Under these protocols, we require that each ingredient in a formula be supplied with the respective Certificate of Analysis. This means that the supplier is required to test the ingredient for contaminants, such as heavy metals, microorganisms, and other physical or chemical parameters unique to the ingredient, before the ingredient is shipped. Any raw materials that do not meet our specifications are sent back to the supplier. Upon receipt of a raw material, it is tested for potency and other parameters outlined in the ingredient's specification sheet. Test results are compared against the established specifications.

Is it ok the double the recommended dose if I feel that my animal needs stronger/better support?

Please follow all dosing instructions stated on our packaging. VetriScience® calculates our dosing strength according to the animal's weight. Never increase dosing on a nutritional supplement without discussing it with your vet first.

Do VetriScience® products require refrigeration?

Refrigeration of our products is not recommended due to the fact that refrigeration produces moisture, which can degrade nutrients, change smell, and reduce the shelf life on nutritional supplements. Please follow the storage instructions on our labels.

  • Highly Recommend

    By on

    I started using this product several years ago when my dachshund had some very scary episodes with his back. We (including our vet) thought for sure that it was only a matter of time before he would need surgery. He is now 10 and has had no further issues. Obviously I cannot say with certainty that it is due to this product. But given the low cost, I highly recommend trying it. We also have 2 other dachshunds and all of them get 1 capsule per day. We put it in their food and have no problem getting them to eat it.

  • Great Stuff

    Especially if you have an older dog, this supplement works great to help with pain and fortify his food.

  • Was skeptical but not now. Good product.

    By on

    We have 2 very old dogs and one older Great Dane. After giving this product for 3 weeks, I have seen a noticeable difference in all 3 dogs stiffness, walking ability and ability to get up. The collagen production has helped the Dane's skin tremendously. I highly recommend this product and Chewy for the excellent pricing. Really good results for the limited amount of time they have been on this product.

    I'm so amazed with this. My daschund had been slow moving in the a.m. Been on this over a week and is moving a lot better.

  • This product is the preventative I was looking for.

    By on

    I'd been looking for a "preventative" to give both of my I.V.D.D. dachshunds and through rescue friends and research I came across this product which is highly recommend in I.V.D.D. support groups. Haven't been on it a month yet and I'm not sure I'd see a difference, other than not going down. I'll continue to purchase.

  • Great combination of joint supplements in one!

    By on

    I have an 11 year old Cavalier King Charles that has extremely severe heart disease. Due to his age, he is now experiencing arthritis and possible IVDD. Because of his heart medications, long-term use of NSAID is not possible due to them interfering with the cardiac meds. I selected this product due to the different ingredients in one pill. He's been on it for about five days, he's not in pain nor does he walk with a limp.

  • This product is good for dachshunds.

    By on

    My brother has a doxie with severe back problems. This product has helped his dog and he continues to have no pain. I have a doxie that is very active and seeing how well his doxie is doing on it, I am also putting my doxies on it. It is well tolerated and easy to administer.

  • Almost Instant Improvement

    By on

    Could not be happier with this supplement. I have a 11 year old Dachshund that stopped going up stairs suddenly. The vet gave us pain pills and Prednizone which didn't help much. I sprinkle 1 capsule of VetriScience on Nugget's food each morning and he is good to go. He seems to have more energy and overall feel better. Could not recommend this product more. Stairs are no longer an issue at all.
