Cholodin is Help at Hand for your Geriatric Pets.

Jul 19, 2008
There is nothing more tragic than to see your animals aging, and to see them become frailer. Because cats and dogs live a lot shorter life than humans, it is likely you will see see least one or two or your pets die.

You might be able to tell that your pet is feeling the effects of his age when he becomes confused or slow, or starts using strange areas of the house as a toilet, has some problems with his digestion, starts looking a bit moth eaten, loses weight and stops eating.

If you find your cat or dog behaving in this odd manner and he or she is of senior years, it's probably due to age. Hiding or avoiding humans, confusion and reverting back to pre house training habits are all signs of age catching up with your pet.

Help is at hand in the form of Cholodin, a choline supplement. Scientific research has shown that choline lessens the risk of heart disease.

Choline supplements are also taken as a way to increase mental acuity as the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which carries out many roles in various cognition systems within the brain.

Memory loss and Alzheimer's are two conditions Choline can help with. It's quite obvious that many of these "human" symptoms are also what your pet suffers from in old age.

MVP Labs make Cholodin for Cats and Dogs. They come in packets of 50 chewables, and the cat variety also contains taurine, as cats do not make this compound themselves; a lack of it can cause blindness and tooth decay. The dog version also comes in packs of 50 chewables.

One tablet by hand or over food is the appropriate dose for a medium dog. Tear a tab in two for a small dog and give two for a large dog. Cats generally make do with one, but the rule is one per ten pounds of weight.

Greater liveliness, a reversion back to a more usual temperament and less confusion should be apparent within a few days. If you continue with the dose, the effects should also continue.

In some cases, animals on a choline supplement may at the beginning of their course, show signs of an increase in neurological activity, and display signs such as hyperactivity, social agitation, muscle twitching and so on. Usually ceasing the regime immediately will stop these symptoms and owners can usually resume the course after three of four days without the reappearance of these signs.

It is wonderful to see your old friend restored back to 'normal behavior', both for you and your pet. With the use of this inexpensive supplement, combined with a good diet, you should be able to give your pet a golden and healthy old age.
