Laser with new approach to dosing
Companion Animal Health unveiled the new CTX Therapy Laser at the Western Veterinary Conference in February. The CTX combines advanced features with a redesigned approach to dosing that gives the user an unmatched level of versatility and control over treatments. It features 0.5 to 15 watts of therapeutic power, and long-life battery operation for maximum flexibility in both treatment applications and locations.
It also features three different dosing solutions, making it an appropriate tool for the new, intermediate and advanced laser user. These dosing solutions include detailed, species-specific, built-in pre-programmed protocols. Also new in the CTX platform is the addition of a comprehensive set of exotic animal protocols.

Product study has positive results
UPenn Veterinary Medicine researchers recently studied I’MYUNITY ®, a proprietary medicinal mushroom extract to help reduce pain and fatigue, and improve energy levels, mobility, appetite and quality of life in canine cancer patients. The results show it significantly slows metastases and affords the longest survival times for dogs with hemangiosarcoma. Many vets recommend the product for nutritional and immune support, as complementary treatment with chemo post-surgery, or for when surgery is not an option or owners decline chemo.

Keeps Omega-3s fresh
DHA and EPA Omega-3s from fresh fish oils provide many health benefits to pets. But it’s very important to keep air from mixing with the oils. Oxygen reacts with these sensitive essential fatty acids, oxidizing them and turning them rancid. Rancid oxidized fish oils may be harmful to cats and dogs because they can introduce harmful free radical events to the body – some researchers claim they can be a cause of some cancers.
WellyTails Fortified Wild Ocean Fish Oil Omega-3 Blends are packaged in a special airless medical metered dose pump system that keeps air from mixing with the oils. The revolutionary Stay Ever Fresh Pump System ensures that only fresh Omega-3 oils are fed to your patients. A special cat/kitten version and a dog version of fish oil and coconut oil are also available. WellyTails.com
