Collagen for my Dog! - NeoCell ArthroPet Review



For almost three months now I have been religiously taking Neocell's Beauty Bursts. In a couple of years I will be turning 30 and I want to make sure that my skin stays in tip top shape. I originally found out about the company on Instagram and on Twitter. I've recently become a fitness fanatic the past year and have really been taking care of my body, inside and out.

I guess that this company is getting quite popular because on my last two visits to the Vitamin Shoppe they were sold out of the Beauty Bursts. I saw someone that I followed on Instagram tweet about her recent purchase and I commented that they were sold out by me. Well to my very pleasant surprise, Neocell's marketing team caught my comment and followed the link to my blog and to my twitter. Not only did she send me a bag of Beauty Bursts, but she also sent me their Keratin Hair Volumizer, which I was so crazy excited to try because my aim for summer of 2014 is long mermaid hair and a fit body. I've already started taking it in addition to my Biotin capsules and my hair is significantly softer and shinier. The only thing that I have done differently was starting to take these capsules in my daily vitamin regimen so I know it's working!

Now guess what else Neocell offers that I had absolutely no idea about? Arthropet! "ArthroPet is an innovative formula that provides chicken cartilage (a natural source of collagen type II, glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid), Plus MSM, CMO and Manganese." Those supplements are important in helping with healthy joints, healthy skin and coat, and eye health.
Not sure what MSM and CMO are? Don't worry I didn't know either so I researched it on the internet!

CMO stands for Cetyl myristoleate and is a dietary supplement that contains a concentrated extract of the fatty acid cerasomal-cis-9-acetyl-myristoleate from natural bovine source. CMO is not found in vegetable oils or other common foods but is found in low amounts in animal connective tissue. (hence, the chicken cartilage!) This product is often used by those who wish to treat arthritic symptoms. 

MSM stands for METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE and is used for chronic pain, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, musculoskeletal pain, muscle cramps, scleroderma, scar tissue, stretch marks, hair loss, wrinkles, protection against sun/wind burn, eye inflammation, oral hygiene, periodontal disease, wounds, cuts, and abrasions/accelerated wound healing.

I was especially excited to read about these wonderful benefits in the supplement because as some of you may already know both my dogs are seniors. One is 7 years old and the other one is turning 11 in just two short weeks. My older dog, Bebe suffers from a floating kneecap, also known as a fluxating patella. She's had steroid injections and even cold laser therapy treatments done. I wrote a blog post about which you can check out here. Bebe jumps as if she were a gazelle and even though she's over a decade old, her energy levels are that of a puppy. The vet charged me a small fortune to administer steroids and laser treatments, all of which I was stuck paying off for months. I am so happy to have been introduced to Arthropet. I gave it to my pups for the first time and they ate it without being wrapped in anything which was a surprise because Yorkies are such fussy eaters. Here's a video of how it all went down!
The bottle comes with 60 pills. Perfect for a one month supply for my two little girls. The suggested use is as follows: As a dietary supplement give one (1) wafer for pets under 50 lbs, two (2) for pets over 50 lbs preferably in the morning on an empty stomach. Allow 20 minutes before feeding.


I am really very pleasantly surprised with the results, but don't take it just from me, read some reviews from other people as well!
