Vetri Disc is a supplement designed to support canine spinal connective tissue health. It combines cartilage from bovine tracheal system cartilage with minerals, amino acids, vitamins, pepsin, and natural sources of the mineral silicon. Chondroitin sulfates, found in cartilage, comprise the structure of connective tissue. This compound is especially found in tissues of the spinal column and in invertebrate disc tissues.
Taurine is an important amino acid and antioxidant which is used by the body for regeneration and elimination of worn-out cell tissue. Horsetail (equisetum arvense) is a rich provider of silicon and also is used by the body for tissue, especially connective tissue synthesis. Calcium and magnesium support growth and maintainance of bone structure. Zinc supports the natural healing process and is needed for the cell energy production process (tissue respiratio). Other amino acids like serine connect the structure of large molecules of sugars (glycosaminoglycans) proteins in connective tissue and thus support connective tissue health. Vitamins C supports collagen production and vitamin D supports absorption of calcium.
