Q: How is Steadfast® Canine different from other joint supplements?
A: Where other joint supplements contain manufactured ingredients, Steadfast Canine is formulated with Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM) and TelaFIRM. NEM, the thin membrane found on the inside of an eggshell, is a naturally occurring matrix of common joint support ingredients like glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Because it's a natural protein source, these ingredients found in NEM are able to be optimally used by your dog, making it the most effective source of these necessary joint health components. TelaFIRM provides your dog with the most research backed, organic trace mineral blend available. Most canine supplements and foods contain the common minerals we associate with joint health like selenium, manganese, copper and zinc. Sadly, most of these minerals are inorganic and bound to a salt, making it difficult for them to survive the acidity of the stomach and reach the intestines for absorption. Organic, or chelated, minerals are carbon bound which protects the mineral from the stomach’s acidic environment and ensures safe passage to the intestines for absorption. TelaFIRM’s proprietary formula uses only this type of organic mineral for maximum health benefits. The combination of these two ingredients coupled with the available research on both Steadfast’s finished formulation and its individual ingredients, ensures you that your dog is receiving the very best supplement that science has to offer.
Q: Why does it matter that Steadfast® Canine is patented?
A: There are many options for dog supplements on the market. This means you need to be careful when selecting one for your beloved dog to find a supplement that actually works. Research products thoroughly and value those that offer finished-product research and credentials. In addition to being a member of the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC), Arenus has taken its credentialing process one step further and gained U.S. patented or patent-pending status on all Arenus Supplements. Steadfast Canine is fully patented. Rest assured that our labels are accurate and our products will work as indicated for your dog.
Q: Will I need to keep my dog on Steadfast® Canine forever?
A: While Steadfast Canine can certainly be used to address acute pain and inflammation associated with injury or osteoarthritis, the formulation is designed as a maintenance program to support your dog through daily wear and tear. Our customers are typically so pleased with the quick improvement in their dog that they opt to add Steadfast Canine to their dog’s daily regimen.
Q: Is Steadfast® Canine palatable?
A: Yes. Steadfast Canine comes in a convenient, chewable tablet which dogs love. You can give this liver-flavored tablet as a treat or add it to their meals. If you find your dog doesn’t care for Steadfast Canine, try breaking it into smaller pieces and adding it to their meal. Disguising the tablet in peanut butter, cheese or other soft treat has also proven helpful.
