Cholodin® is the original choline-loading supplement formulated for geriatric canine and feline patients. Cholodin® contains choline, amino acids, vitamins and minerals in a chewable tablet or powder formulation. Cholodin® FEL offers the same dependable performance as Cholodin®, plus taurine and an enhanced flavor base for cats.
Cholodin® contains sources of choline and phosphatidylcholine, two of the most common phospholipids. When present in sufficient dietary quantities, these components act as neurotransmitter precursors, which are chemicals manufactured and released by nerve cells that initiate the sending of “messages” from those cells.
Choline has four major functions:
1-Significant dietary factor in preventing fatty liver syndrome in diabetic dogs
2-Can ‘donate’ methyl groups (CH3) needed to synthesize other metabolic compounds
3-Necessary for acetylcholine formation
4-Component of the phospolipid, lecithin along with being a constituent of plasmalogens, which are abundant in mitochondria and sphingomyelin, bound particularly in the brain
Other key ingredients include: lecithin, methionine, inositol, vitamin B12, thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, niacinamide, pantothenic acid, selenium, vitamin E, zinc.
Occasionally, geriatric dogs and cats display clinical signs unexplainable by a specific pathological diagnosis.
These include: Lethargy and reduced awareness of surroundings Poor coat; excessive shedding or thin, dry coat Chronic constipation or fecal incontinence Inappropriate urination Poor appetite; animal eats too little to maintain an adequate body weight Poor mental acuity For animals displaying one or more of these conditions, choline supplementation with CHOLODIN® may be considered as an appropriate dietary supplement. Essentially, through dietary supplementation, Cholodin® can help the older pet regain some physical characteristics lost to aging. Veterinary consultation is important to maximize your results.
