Duralactin® contains MicroLactin®, which is a patented dried milk protein. MicroLactin® is derived from the milk of cows that are hyperimmunized. This means that the cows possess this specific antibody in very large quantities. The antibody contains factors that work to block cytokines, substances that are produced during inflammatory reactions and allergies, that modify the functions of cells and increase the inflammation. Blocking the cytokines both reduces inflammation and the white blood cell participation in the response to the inflammation, thereby helping to prevent subsequent tissue damage that can be caused by excess neutrophil accumulation. Neutrophils,the most abundant kind of white blood cells found in mammals, are found in tissues and form an essential part of the immune system. They respond to a wide variety of substances that are released at the locations of inflammatory reactions. Duralactin® helps stop chronic inflammation at the cellular level, and also avoids inhibiting protective prostaglandin activity.
Duralactin® has been shown to be a highly effective anti-inflammatory, regardless of the origin of the inflammation, and it also seems to work without irritation of the gastro-intestinal system. Many laboratory animal models that have been given partially purified preparations have shown decreased inflammation. This supplement is the perfect choice for cats who need management of chronic inflammation, and also for acute inflammation, particularly as a result of bacterial infections, environmental exposure, and some cancers. Duralactin® does not suppress the immune system and supports normal activity and wellness.
Results can be seen in four to seven days, peaking in ten days to two weeks.
A brand new cat
I adopted a cat that had been hit by a car. Her back leg was broken, and she had a lot of other injuries, but we nursed her through. She seemed wholly better, except that it was clear that her leg hurt her sometimes. Some days she wouldn't even jump onto the couch. We started this supplement about a month ago, and she is like a different cat. She has no problems getting onto the couch now. I would recommend this product to anyone with pets who have problems with their legs. I also like the fact that it can be given with other treatments from the vet, if necessary, so I don't worry that this is my last option already because she is so young.
