We have tried to formulate products either in capsule form, liquids, gels or pastes with tasty flavourings to help with compliance. 

Do the products require any particular storage conditions?

We advise our products are stored in a safe dry place out of direct sunlight and kept sealed once a product has been opened to exclude moisture. All best before and batch numbers are printed usually on the base of all products.

How long will products last once opened?

Our Products have long shelf life’s with all the best before and batch numbers usually printed on the base, providing the product is stored in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.


Are the pots and tubs recyclable?

All of our plastic pots and lids can be recycled without any special consideration (their plastic-type number will be on the base/underside of lid), as long as they are clean.

You may also need to check with your local recycling centre or curbside collection service, as they may require labels to be removed, but most do not.

Are the syringes recyclable?

The syringes are five assembled components; featuring HDPE and LDPE plastics, as a result they will need cleaning and separating before recycling.

To find more about which type of plastics can be recycled in your area contact your local council. 

How can I tell which type of plastic the packaging is?

A good tip for checking to see if you can recycle any veterinary packaging is to look out for the plastic type number which is in a triangle, this number corresponds to a type of plastic. For example, a number 2 is HDPE, high-density polyethylene.

Using this information you can then determine if your council collect the plastic via curbside or local recycling centres.  

Joint Pro

How long does it take for Joint Pro to work?

With Joint Pro it tends to show results in as little as 2 weeks but gradual improvements can be noticeable after a few days,  but it can take longer depending on your animal, so we would advise allowing for at least 60 days to see benefits.

This is based on scientific studies which have been carried out to assess the amount of Joint Pro needed to achieve maximum efficacy for all active ingredients. Once the loading period has finished the number of Joint Pro tablets your pet receives daily can be halved. This is sufficient to maintain beneficial levels of Joint Pro’s active ingredients long term. 

I have already completed a loading period of my current joint supplement, do I still need to complete a loading period of Joint Pro?

Does lysine help cats with colds?

It thought that L-lysine won’t cure, but it may help prevent or reduce the severity of respiratory conditions in cats.

Why is L-Lysine beneficial for cats?

As an amino acid, Lysine serves as a building block for protein, which plays a key role in carrying out many different bodily functions.

It is important to note that a cat’s body does not make Lysine on its own. Because Lysine for cats is essential for overall health, cats should receive outside sources of this amino acid through food and supplements.  Administration of Lysine to cats that are infected with FHV-1 is associated with a significant reduction in the severity of clinical signs and basal viral shedding. It is believed that Lysine halts the replication of the virus by interfering with another amino acid called arginine, which the virus needs in order to replicate.

How long does it take for the product to take effect?

We recommend that the product is given directly either on a cat’s paw or on food, for one week before periods of stress and for at least 2 weeks afterwards.

Can I take lysine and vitamin C together?

No interactions were found between L-Lysine and Vitamin C. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. However it is always best to speak to a Veterinary Surgeon if you are unsure.

Can you get lysine over the counter?

Yes L-Lysine can be purchased over the counter without a prescription even if your pet is not registered at that practice. However we believe vets are best placed to advise the right course of actions for your pet. Whether your cat has had respiratory problems in the past or is showing signs the first time, speak to your vet for advice.

How much lysine can I give my cat?

Our product contains 500g of L-Lysine per 2ml pump which is recommended once daily for cats.

Cats may remain on L-lysine indefinitely.

Is L Lysine good for immune system in cats?

There are various benefits of Lysine for cats as it serves as a building block for protein. It is important to note that the cat’s body does not naturally product lysine.

During respiratory infections L-lysine could help support the immune system by reducing the reproduction and replication of the virus.

What flavour does the product come in?

The product is a poultry flavour gel which can be applied directly to food or placed on the paw.
