What Research Has Been Conducted on the Impact of Fortetropin® on Muscle Health in Dogs? 

 

•    100 dogs participated in a clinical study at Kansas State University to determine the impact of Fortetropin® on recovery following surgery to repair torn ligaments in their limbs.

•    50 dogs received Fortetropin® on a daily basis for 12 weeks.

    50 dogs received a placebo on a daily basis for 12 weeks.

•    Following surgery, the operated limb needs to be immobilized for several weeks       and this typically leads to significant muscle loss.

Eight weeks after surgery, dogs that received Fortetropin® experienced:

  1. Minimal loss in thigh circumference compared to the placebo group which experienced a significant decrease in thigh circumference.

  2. Improved weight-bearing capacity on the operated limb.

  3. Minimal change in myostatin levels while dogs in the placebo group experienced an increase in myostatin levels of ~10%. Myostatin is a protein that “puts the brakes” on the growth and development of muscle tissue.

   

 A new research study that will examine the impact of Fortetropin® on the quality of life and activity levels in geriatric dogs has recently been initiated.
