We have been using 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE since it was first launched in both horses and dogs. A major advantage over other nutraceuticals is the rapid onset of action; generally improvement is seen in the first week.
Main indications are:
Chronic arthritis – the dogs are usually on intermittent anti-inflammatory drugs and we try to reduce their use with 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE. They generally respond well and, if the 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE is stopped, they regress. One of my assistants has an older working kelpie with arthritis and he is able to work comfortably on 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE.
Client feedback is generally positive and we have many dogs on it full time.
We do Tibial tuberosity advancement for cruciate repair in larger dogs and de angelis lateral sutures in small dogs. All these cases go home with 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE and are encouraged to stay on the supplement full time. Any other surgery involving joints are also sent home on 4CYTE™ EPIITALIS®️ FORTE.
Interestingly, I have had clients — after seeing how well the dogs go — ask if there is a human equivalent.
