If your dog suffers from cancer or arthritis, this supplement is recommended as part of your whole food diet for your pet (see instructions below).
You, like perhaps most pet lovers, may have never even heard of desiccated trachea glandular for dogs. This product, supported with research by Dr. John Prudden, is not necessarily at the top of most people’s to-buy lists. And yet there are many benefits to tracheal glandular capsules that may surprise you.
Dr. John F. Prudden’s Body of Work
Summarizing the life’s work of Dr. Prudden is no easy task and we’ll make no attempts at it here, but his focus is an interesting one. The surgeon and researcher passed away in 1998 and was remembered for his widespread use of cartilage. Dr. Prudden used bovine cartilage to speed the healing of wounds and found a protein in the substance that stimulated the immune system and slowed blood vessel growth.
The Harvard-educated doctor eventually won numerous awards for his work and today the science lives on in products like desiccated trachea glandular for dogs.
Dr. Prudden founded Lescarden Inc., a biotechnology company. This company is perhaps best known for its Catrix wound dressing, a product that uses bovine cartilage to manage chronic lesions and burns. It also sells lip balms and a host of skin products, all with Dr. Prudden’s scientific findings at the core.
Dr. Prudden’s determination that tracheal cartilage could heal wounds quickly and bolster joint health is what goes into every capsule of desiccated trachea glandular. And this science can support your dog’s health as well, with the foundational belief that “likes supports like” when it comes to inherited health.
Benefits of Bovine Cartilage for Your Dog
The great gift of bovine tracheal cartilage is in its usage as a “normalizer” in your dog’s system. It suppresses some function of the immune system but bolsters it in other situations, leading to a balancing effect that helps regulate health. This is because of abundant “molecular biodirectors,” which Dr. Prudden discovered were offering a powerful regulating effect.
Bovine trachea cartilage is rich in glycosaminoglycans, which balance proteins. Glycosaminoglycans also support the lymphatic system, while maintaining collagen and cell elasticity. This may seem like fancy science to some, but the evidence is more than convincing that desiccated trachea glandular for dogs offers incredible immune and joint health support. This makes it a particularly fascinating option for aging dogs, as these furry friends are more prone to joint issues.
Sourcing Bovine Tracheal Cartilage
Available in capsule form, bovine tracheal cartilage is sourced with the super-food liver to provide a top-tier supplement for your dog’s diet. This grass-fed trachea comes from New Zealand cattle and is 100 percent hormone, pesticide and GMO free. There are no fillers and flow agents in these capsules and this product is allergen free, making it safe for your dog.
Capsule dosage may vary, but the typical dosage for humans is six capsules per day. Each capsule contains freeze-dried New Zealand grass-fed bovine tracheal cartilage with liver, as well as glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, chondroitin sulfates, and type-2 collagen derived from beef gelatin.
8-10 pounds of body weight should receive one capsule.
Helpful tip: (1) One bottle will last a seventy pound dog 25 days feeding 7 capsules daily. Can be mixed directly into their wet meal. THIS IS A WHOLE FOOD!
