Fortetropin is an advanced nutrition product marketed by MYOS that has been shown to accelerate gains in muscle tissue in multiple clinical studies involving humans.

This most recent study completed at Kansas State University involved supplementing geriatric dogs with a nutrition product, with half of the dogs enrolled receiving Fortetropin and the other half of the dogs enrolled receiving a macronutrient-matched placebo. Dog owners were required to complete a standardized questionnaire called LOAD (Liverpool Osteoarthritis in Dogs). The LOAD questionnaire was developed and validated by veterinarians and veterinary researchers at the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, and has been used extensively in clinical studies on canine osteoarthritis published in the peer-reviewed literature. The LOAD questionnaire is comprised of 13 questions that relate to general mobility in addition to the capability to perform exercise. Each question is assigned a score from 0 to 4 with higher scores corresponding to increased severity of osteoarthritis.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
