Frequently asked questions about PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinaat
What is FORTIGEL®
PrimeVal Gelatinaat® is now even more effective. New studies have led to a product with a better absorbability of the peptide chains. This bio-active form of FORTIGEL® is now used in all our Gelatinaat® products. FORTIGEL® is more rapidly absorbed from the digestive tract into the bloodstream. The peptide chains now remain even better intact upon absorption. FORTIGEL® is almost completely absorbed. Within 12 hours, 95% of the gelatinate ingested is absorbed. The effect of FORTIGEL® has been extensively studied and documented. The beneficial effect of FORTIGEL® on the joints has been confirmed in several randomized and placebo-controlled studies. PrimeVal is the exclusive provider of this high-quality FORTIGEL GELATINAT®.
Why Primeval Puppy Gelatinaat?
PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinaat is derived from the successful PrimeVal Gelatinaat for adult dogs. It has a special composition to which no calcium has been added. Growing young dogs are not yet able to properly regulate the calcium absorption in the intestine, so that an unwanted excess can be absorbed into the body.
How does Primeval Puppy Gelatinate work?
PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinaat is a unique food supplement for the joints of your growing puppy up to at least one year. PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinate has a special composition to which no calcium has been added. PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinate ensures that sufficient essential nutrients are present during growth for good bone and cartilage development, but also for the construction of strong joint capsules, ligaments and tendons.
Does Primeval Puppy Gelatinaat still make sense if my growing puppy already suffers from complaints?
Yes, PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinate is both preventive and indicative, it is a unique food supplement for the joints of your growing puppy. PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinate ensures that sufficient essential nutrients are present during growth for good bone and cartilage development, but also for the construction of strong joint capsules, ligaments and tendons. So even if there are already complaints, PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinaat offers a solution.
Can I give my puppy the same Gelatinaat as my older dog?
No, for puppies there is a special composition without calcium and magnesium.
From what age should I switch to Primeval Gelatinaat?
PrimeVal Puppy Gelatinate should in any case be used during the growth phase of the puppy. We therefore recommend using this product for at least one year before switching to the regular version. For the large, fast-growing varieties, this may even be better than two years. The product cannot be used "for too long". The active ingredient collagen hydrolyzate is the same in both products. Only calcium and magnesium have not been added to the variant for the puppy.
