Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. launches Solliquin™ Behavioral Health Supplement.
LANCASTER,SC (10/20/2015) – Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. (Nutramax) is pleased to introduce Solliquin™ Behavioral Health Supplement. SOLLIQUIN is a supplement for dogs and cats intended to help support normal behavior and facilitate a calming effect. SOLLIQUIN is the first and only veterinary behavior health product that brings together a unique combination of L-theanine, Magnolia and Phellodendron extracts, as well as a select concentrated whey protein, providing the benefits of all four ingredients in a convenient, once-daily soft chew or chewable tablet. This product highlights Nutramax’s continual focus on research and quality and commitment to not only the joint health category, but the overall well-being of pets.
The key ingredients found in SOLLIQUIN have been shown to help pets exhibiting nervousness and discontentment in response to environmentally-induced stress. The effects of theanine have been evaluated in dogs and cats and indicate that theanine may reduce signs of anxiety in cases of noise phobias, travel anxiety, urine marking, and fear of humans. NMXSLQ05&trade is a unique purified milk whey extract containing sources of amino acid precursors necessary for the synthesis of antioxidants and certain neurotransmitters. Finally, the combination of Magnolia and Phellodendron extracts reduced anxiety in a laboratory model of beagles in a placebo-controlled clinical trial of noise-induced anxiety. This unique combination of ingredients provides a one-of-a-kind formulation only available in SOLLIQUIN.
"We are proud of our new SOLLIQUIN behavioral health formula," said Scott Huggins, DVM, MBA, Technical Services Veterinarian at Nutramax. "We understand the many challenges a pet faces in a family environment. Whether that family is just the pet and their owner or a large family with multiple pets, we want to help make every home a 'forever home'."
SOLLIQUIN is available in three different presentations to meet the needs of any sized pet:
- Soft Chews for small dogs and small cats – 60 count
- Soft Chews for small to medium dogs and large cats – 75 count
- Chewable Tablets for medium to large dogs – 45 count
Package sizes are designed to provide more than 30 days of product for an individual pet with patients receiving 45 or more days of product in most weight ranges. These package sizes give the pet and owner a greater opportunity to experience the benefits of SOLLIQUIN. Product/package sizes are aligned with initial administration recommendations by leading veterinary specialists for a behavior health supplement.
