The joint supplements can be particularly beneficial for older animals or animals with a genetic predisposition to joint problems. They can help to keep joints supple, reduce stiffness and improve mobility.

In addition to the use of food supplements, it is also important to consider a balanced diet and adequate exercise for the joint health of pets. With a holistic approach, pets' quality of life can be improved and their freedom of movement supported into old age.

Fortan Glykan Compact: Ergänzungsfutter für Hunde und Katzen - 400 g Dose
Glykan® Compact Tabletten
FORTAN Glykan Compact for dogs and cats - green-lipped mussel extract for healthy joints The anti-inflammatory properties of the mussel Perna canaliculus, which only grows in the waters of New Zealand, were only discovered in the mid-70s. Since then, the mussel has been used in food supplements for humans and animals. Animal studies have further underlined the beneficial effects of the green-lipped mussel's components. Mussel extract from New Zealand Strengthens cartilage, tendons and ligaments Three important ingredients Green lipped mussel extract contains three important components that are necessary for healthy joints: Glycosaminoglycans (GAG), Omega-3 fatty acids (especially DHA, EPA and alpha-linolenic acid) and a unique phosphorylated glycogen molecule. Each substance on its own has been shown to be an important element in promoting healthy joints. In combination, these three substances exhibit a synergistic effect that accounts for the anti-inflammatory phenomenon, exceeding the sum of the effects of the individual substances. Green-lipped mussel powder is also an excellent supplement to glucosamine and chondroitin for joint problems. Mussel flesh extract with unique building substances The many building materials (vital substances) contained in mussel flesh extract are unique. In addition to the GAG (glycosaminoglycans), the mussel extract contains 10 different minerals, 18 L-amino acids that are extremely important for the organism, omega-3 fatty acids, enzymes and trace elements for the nutrition of connective tissue and cartilage. Since neither cartilage nor connective tissue are supplied with blood, these tissues must be nourished in a different way. This is done by diffusion, a movement of fluids, between synovia (synovial fluid), cartilage and connective tissue. A prerequisite for this is that sufficient synovia is available and sufficient water is stored in cartilage and connective tissue. Glycosaminoglycans serve as water reservoirs in cartilage and connective tissue, are thus responsible for the shock-absorbing function of the joints and help to form new synovia. They also rebuild missing cartilage and stabilise the ligaments and joint capsule.

Fortan Glykan: Ergänzungsfutter für Hunde und Katzen - 300 g Dose
Glykan® Pulver
FORTAN Glycan for dogs and cats - For smooth functioning of the musculoskeletal system In dogs, the connective tissue is the largest interconnected organ unit. Dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages need valuable nutrients for smooth functioning of the musculoskeletal system and joints. Intact connective tissue = better performance Performance and other factors depend on the intact condition of the connective tissue. The essential substance of connective tissue and cartilage mass consists of glycosaminoglycans. These must be constantly replenished by the organism through the food chain. They give elasticity to the tissue and ensure the formation of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, intervertebral discs and synovial fluid. Cartilage in particular consists of collagen fibres and a gel that is very similar to the substance of glycosaminoglycans. Therefore, the provision of these building blocks, which promote and stabilise connective tissue metabolism, is essential. Mussel extract from New Zealand FORTAN Glycan consists of 20 % mussel extract from the New Zealand farmed mussel (Perna canaliculus) with glycosaminoglycans, collagen hydrolysate as well as herbs and minerals. These glycans are concentrated in the New Zealand mussel. They therefore provide an important basic ingredient in the production of FORTAN Glycan. Especially recommended for young dogs of large breeds The glycosaminoglycan requirement and consumption of such glycans is significantly increased, especially in young dogs of large breeds. The same applies to performance dogs and especially to older dogs, which lose their joy of movement with increasing age. The mobility of the joints, the resilience of the connective and supporting tissue and the joy of movement are preserved for longer.

CATFORTAN® Tabletten für Katzen
CATFORTAN for Cats - Biologically Active Vitamins contains the widest range of fully effective substances specially adapted to the cat's physiology: essential vitaminsessential taurineMineralsTrace elements10 essential amino acids The natural balance of ingredients has a mutually supporting, sometimes potentiating effect. This dietary supplement specifically for cats helps prevent nutrient deficiencies A varied, needs-based and balanced diet for cats forms the basis for optimal development, health, well-being and performance into old age. That is why it is so important to feed the cat correctly. Especially our cat is very much alienated from its original food. This was the only food that gave the cat all the biological active substances that are vital for it and which are no longer fully contained even in the very best, fresh muscle meat of slaughtered animals. In industrial feed production - even in premium complete feeds - many of these important, natural nutrients are lost. Regular supplementation of the feed, adapted to the respective age and needs, is recommended Helps to reduce diseases and irreparable signs of wear and tear caused by inadequate feed.For the supply of vital substances in the case of a reduction in feed that is necessary for health reasons, in order to avoid the resulting deficiencies.Supports the overall development of bones and muscle formation in kittens. Cats have an unusually high need for taurine for their numerous for their numerous metabolic functions. Only regular supplementary feeding of taurine will ensure a minimum basic supply. Cats that temporarily have an increased need for biological agents (dams during gestation and lactation, studs as well as sick and convalescing cats) should be given twice the daily dose. Likewise older cats, which often have absolute deficiencies in the biological organ supply (age-related resorption disorders).

Fortan Plu-Fortan Protect: Ergänzungsfutter für Hunde und Katzen - 350 g Dose
Plu-Fortan® Protect Tabletten
Plu-Fortan Protect for dogs and cats - regulation and stabilisation of the joint metabolism In dogs, the connective tissue represents the largest interconnected organ unit. Dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages need valuable nutrients for smooth functioning of the musculoskeletal system and joints. Relieves joint pain and inflammation Glucosamine not only stimulates cartilage production, but also relieves joint pain and inflammation. It strengthens the body's natural repair mechanisms. Cartilage and joints are supplied with important anabolic nutrients. This promotes joint movement, mobility, flexibility and elasticity of the cartilage, while building a layer of cartilage for long-lasting well-being. For pain-free, smooth and supple movement Chondroitin prevents cartilage-damaging substances and enzymes from extracting water from the cartilage, and at the same time it stimulates the production of glucosamine and collagen. The lubrication of the joints is significantly improved. MSM - Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane MSM is a natural sulphur compound that is vital to every metabolism with its all-encompassing functionality. Sulphur is necessary to form collagen, the primary component of cartilage, connective tissue and tendons All the ingredients contained in Plu-Fortan® Protect provide a nutritive supply of all the building blocks necessary for natural mobility and elasticity.
