Client testimonial: FLY REPEL

RE: DONATION OF FLY REPEL SPRAY
Many thanks for your kind donation of 3 litres of Fly Repel and 3 spray bottles to the Johannesburg Zoo. It is much appreciated and will be used by our hoof-stock section. As discussed with you telephonically, we are experiencing a terrible fly problem after all the rains, and Fly Repel is the only product that seems to be working to keep the flies away from the animals!Kind regardsSR VANESSA ANDERSON
Johannesburg Zoo Client testimonial: MEDICOTE and BIO-VITA

Jurie Kruger emailed us to say that he was impressed with the way these two products, when used together, helped to get rid of a skin condition that his bullterrier had been suffering from since it was a puppy.

I would like to thank you (Medpet) for the research, and eventual introduction of Medimune tablets, which is truly the answer to my question i.e. how to improve immunity in small animals.After Ringworm was diagnosed on my dogs on 27 July 2005, I urgently had to get help for these 5 week old puppies, whose new owners were anxiously waiting for them. In addition to the usual medical treatment, I also administered extra vitamins, of which there are many available in the market.Veterinarians were probably tired of all my questions regarding immunity, until an efficient nurse at Sinoville Animal Clinic gave me the answer on 12 August 2005 – Medimune Tablets from Medpet. I immediately started giving it to my puppies at an increased dosage of 1 tablet per day for a small Yorkshire Terrier puppy, many of whom at that stage are not even 500 grams.Well…. it is with great appreciation that I can today confirm that the puppies’ immunity system has improved so much that their systems are successfully combating the lesions. If they even appear at all, lesions now disappear within 1- 2 days. These puppies had poor immune systems due to various historic problems with their mother.The administration of Medimune Tablets to each dog, will from now on, be part of each day’s routine.With sincere thanks and appreciation Elma Roos
Client testimonials: ARTHRITIS CARE

Please allow me to offer my sincere thanks for the trouble you went through in delivering one bottle of Arthritis Care to my residence in Keurboom Street, Roodepoort.When I first read about this product I thought “yeah right another sales gimmicklike this stuff is going to cure my 12 year old cat of arthritis!” Nevertheless, out of desperation I contacted about eight different veterinary practices on the West Rand who all informed me they do not stock this product. This made me even more suspicious. To cut a long story short I decided to risk R100 and you delivered this product to my house.After I’ve been using this product for a month I can now testify that Arthritis Care really does work. My cat has never been in better condition and he is acting like a six-month old kitten with a real zest for life.In closing I can recommend this product to any pet lover who has a need to use it and I would like to place an order for a further two bottles of Arthritis Care to be delivered to my residence if possible at all. If this is not possible please advise me of the closest stockist of Arthritis Care in the Roodepoort area. Thank you very much for making this product available to pets suffering for arthritis. Trusting you find the above in order I await your favourable reply.

My 10 year old German Shepherd battled to get up in the morning and he could not climb the stairs. After taking the pills (Arthritis Care) for 2 weeks I saw a vast difference and he seemed more mobile and started running around the garden as he use to.Yours sincerely”Satisfied customer”, Durbanville (see picture of the happy dog below)

Client testimonial: OROZYME
Orozyme has been a great addition to the weaponry that I have available to wage the war against plaque, calculus, gingivitis and periodontitis in dogs and cats.
The eight enzymes contained in Orozyme have very specific physiological effects in the mouth.
The Lacto peroxidise / glucose oxidase enzymes convert the complex starches and sugars in food which will form plaque on teeth, into glucose, immediately post prandially. This, together with the abrasive action of the Orozyme gel with brushing, helps remove the plaque.
The Glucoamylase and Amylase further helps in the conversion of starches to glucose which is absorbed by the animal’s mucous membrane, thus starving the bacteria present in dental tartar.
Potassium thiocyanate is bacteriocydal. Superoxide Dismutase is a free radical scavenger which reduces inflammation of gums, preventing gingivitis and periodontitis.
Lactoferrine and Lysozyme are antiseptic, further helping prevent gingivitis, periodontitis and halitosis.
I found clinically, that Orozyme is well accepted by both dogs and cats. It stimulates saliva flow and licking improves the mechanical action of the tongue, further helping to remove plaque. The reduction in halitosis is dramatic.
The chronic lymphocytic / plasmacytic gingivitis in cats is kept under control together with the other mainstay treatments.
In addition, my veterinary nurse uses Orozyme to polish the teeth after dental scaling. A small quantity applied to the polishing instruments cup gives a very smooth finish to the dental enamel (and leaves enzymes behind to perform their task). I recommend it on the invoice on discharge. It is a nice practice builder, especially if your whole staff is Orozyming.
