All About NEO-K9
NEO-K9® provides natural, clinically proven support for the entire canine skeletal system.
NEO-K9 is the only product of this kind available for dogs, and uses a patented delivery mechanism to facilitate the uptake of bone minerals and bone co-factors contained in the product and essential for a healthy skeleton.
NEO-K9 is based on a supplement for humans, which you can find more information about here.
NEO-K9 is a nutritional supplement for dogs bones and joints. Unlike most joint supplements, which act as cushioning agents for the joint, NEO-K9 works differently, it provides effective structural support to the bones and joints from the inside out, supporting the dog's entire skeletal system.
It is effective in dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, and we receive a lot of positive feedback from owners whose dogs have been showing signs of needing bone and joint support before they started taking the product.
Each tablet contains over 325 mg of active ingredients:
|Neo-Portin® complex contains RNase-Enriched Lactoferrin, Coenzyme Q10 and Beta-Glucan. It is patented formulation which facilitates nutrient delivery within the bone. In brief helps the nutrients in NEO-K9 reach the right parts of your dogs' body so that they can get to work maintaining healthy bone and joint tissue. It’s powerful stuff and contains lactoferrin which is made using a lactose-free milk protein.|
How well nutrients work depends on the amount of other vitamins and minerals available in the body, our bone health experts call these bone co-factors. During the product formulation process they carefully calculate just the right balance of co-factors so your dog’s body can make maximum use of all those brilliant bone nutrients.
|Vitamin C is important for bone formation. It is also critical in the repair and maintenance of scar tissue, blood vessels and cartilage and can help in preventing osteoporosis.|
|Vitamin D is an extremely important co-factor for bone formation, and nerve and muscle control because it helps to regulate calcium and phosphorous levels in the blood.|
|Vitamin E is an important antioxidant. It protects cell membranes from oxidative damage. Several studies have also demonstrated the effects of vitamin E on building stronger bone and cartilage tissues.|
|Vitamin K1 has positive impact on bone mineral density. Along with vitamin C, calcium and zinc, vitamin K helps to reduce bone loss. Vitamin K is also a vital co-factor for calcium uptake and bone mineralization.|
The minerals included in NEO-K9® are all essential for maintaining strong bones and joints. They include calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese and selenium.
|Calcium is essential for maintaining healthy bones, helping muscles contract, blood coagulate, and for nerve impulses to be transmitted throughout the body. In order to be used by the body calcium needs to be eaten with the right quantities of vitamin D and magnesium.|
|Magnesium has two key functions in bone health: it helps bones stay more flexible so that they don’t break as easily and it helps to maintain bone mineral density keeping bones strong. It is also important elsewhere throughout your dog’s body and is required for almost every biological process.|
|Zinc is required for calcium to be properly deposited in bones and for healthy bones to be maintained throughout your dog’s lifetime. Zinc is also an important supplement for keeping your dog’s coat and skin healthy.|
|Manganese is essential for healthy joint cartilage. It is also important for bone structure, bone metabolism, and in helping to create essential enzymes for building bones.|
The antioxidants in the complex work together to neutralise excessive numbers of free radicals that can cause oxidative stress in the body.
|Quercetin is an antioxidant which helps modulate the natural bone breakdown process, among other things, helping maintain a healthy bone density.|
|Selenium is also a trace mineral which is essential for your dog’s bone health. It is an antioxidant and acts together with vitamins E and C, to prevent damage to cells.|

Who developed NEO-K9®?
HOW DOES NEO-K9® WORK?
NEO-K9® is a natural lactoferrin-based supplement that supports strong bones and healthy joints in dogs.
This all-in-one supplement uses the science from six US patents and is based on a powerful complex containing ribonuclease-enriched lactoferrin (R-ELF).
R-ELF is a high quality, natural, lactose-free, milk-derived protein that has been clinically shown to help maintain strong bones by supporting healthy bone turnover and by providing structural support to the bones and joints. R-ELF also offers similar benefits to many traditional joint supplements by promoting mobility, flexibility, and healthy joint function. For comprehensive support NEO-K9® also contains well-balanced ratios of the key bone and joint vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants required by your dog’s skeletal system.
WHY DOES MY DOG NEED NEO-K9®?
NEO-K9® is safe and effective for dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. The formula is glucosamine-free and can serve as a multifunctional alternative for dogs with glucosamine sensitivities.
NEO-K9® Maintenance Formula is particularly beneficial for large breed puppies during their rapid growth phases, small dogs with fragile bones and joints, agile or active dogs with aches and pains, and senior dogs so they can continue to enjoy their favourite activities.
NEO-K9® Clinical Formula delivers powerful bone and joint support to dogs with advanced needs. This maximum strength formula is available exclusively through veterinarians.
IF I GIVE MY DOG NEO-K9®, DO I NEED TO GIVE HIM OR HER ANY ADDITIONAL JOINT SUPPLEMENTS?
NEO-K9® is designed as an ALL-IN-ONE supplement that supports both your dog's joints (collagen synthesis, lubrication, mobility, and comfort) as well as their bones (turnover, density, etc). While it is usually unnecessary to give your dog any additional joint supplement while taking NEO-K9®, the product can be added to an existing supplement programme. For your dog’s specific needs, please ask your veterinarian.
HOW MANY TABLETS SHOULD I BE GIVING MY DOG?
Each bottle of NEO-K9® contains 90 chewable liver and sausage flavoured tablets and lasts for 30-90 days depending on your dog’s weight. Give your dog the recommended amount daily. Check the table on the side of the bottle, or see reverse for exact quantities.
