Stimulfos Pet Line:
a boost to the immune system and metabolism

stimulfos famiglia 1 - Teknofarma

In the course of their lives, dogs and cats can experience various stressful situations of both physiological and pathological origin. In such cases it is useful, if not necessary, to support the body’s ability to react with a complementary feed suited to the specific needs of that moment.

One of the solutions offered by Teknofarma is Stimulfos Pet Line.

WHAT IS Stimulfos Pet Line?

Stimulfos Pet Line is a specific complementary feed for dogs and cats, specially designed to support the body’s ability to react under stressful conditions:

  • it supports the immune system of dogs and cats
  • it counteracts catabolism and loss of muscle mass
  • it maintains the proper functioning and full efficiency of all cellular processes.
WHAT DOES Stimulfos Pet Line CONTAIN?

Stimulfos Pet Line contains:

  • Beta-glucans
  • Phosphatidic acid
  • B vitamins.

Beta-glucans “friends” of the immune system


Beta-glucans are polysaccharides with immunomodulation properties: they induce a chain of reactions leading to the activation of the immune system (increased phagocytosis, production of B and T lymphocytes, activation of humoral and cell-mediated immunity).

Numerous scientific evidences show that the dietary supplementation of beta-glucans can:

  • favourably influence the immune system of dogs and cats and the antibody response following vaccination
  • contribute to the treatment and prevention of bacterial, viral and fungal diseases.

In particular, recent clinical studies have shown that, following vaccination, higher antibody levels were detected in the serum of animals that had previously and/or simultaneously received an oral administration of Beta-glucans, compared with the serum of vaccinated animals that had not received Beta-glucan supplementation (Altug, Haladovà and Vojtek et al.).

Beta-glucans are found in nature in a variety of sources (fungi, yeasts, bacteria, algae and cereals) with different immunomodulation properties.

Several scientific studies have shown that the beta-1.3/1.6-glucan form present in yeast (particularly Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is the most bioactive.

Stimulfos Pet Line only contains highly pure Beta-glucans extracted from a selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Furthermore, in addition to their immunomodulating action, Beta-glucans help to limit the cytotoxic action of chemotherapeutic agents used against cancer and to control certain side effects of chemotherapy (e.g. leukopenia).

Beta-glucans are therefore particularly suitable for supporting the immune system, particularly during debilitating diseases and chemotherapy treatments, during vaccination prophylaxis and under stressful conditions.


Phosphatidic acid

Phosphatidic acid is the simplest phospholipid in cell membranes and is the precursor of many glycerophospholipids, such as phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylethanolamine, which are involved in the correct transduction of cellular signals, in protein, cholesterol and lipid metabolism and in nerve impulse conduction.

By binding to specific receptors, phosphatidic acid also regulates several important cellular functions, including ribosomal biogenesis and protein synthesis, and promotes cell growth, proliferation and survival.

Thanks to these properties, Phosphatidic acid is able to counteract the increased catabolism observed in elderly subjects or during debilitating diseases and to promote anabolic processes, favouring optimal development and growth, prompt recovery in convalescent animals and providing valuable support in physiological ageing.


B vitamins

B vitamins are water-soluble vitamins involved in multiple cellular processes in the body:

  • glucose metabolism
  • lipid metabolism
  • protein metabolism
  • energy production.

For this reason, their proper intake should never be neglected.

In situations of stress or more or less intense work (e.g. in sporting, hunting and working dogs), the need for B vitamins can increase by two to five times.

In these cases, a decrease of the level of these vitamins in the blood can lead to a weaker immune system, as all B vitamins are involved in immunological processes.

Furthermore, as they cannot be stored as reserves, it is essential that their intake is constant and in the right quantities.

WHEN SHOULD I USE Stimulfos Pet Line?

Stimulfos Pet Line can be useful in the following situations:

  • states of immunodepression as a result of disease or treatment with antibiotics, parasiticides and chemotherapeutics
  • vaccinations (e.g. in puppies, in preparation for their vaccination course)
  • chronic and debilitating illnesses (infectious diseases, parasite infestations, etc.)
  • convalescence and immobility following trauma or surgery
  • anorexic dogs and cats
  • ageing
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • physical activity and intense exertion, e.g. sporting dogs (agility dog, canicross, dog dance), hunting dogs, working dogs (sled dogs, rescue dogs, sniffer dogs)
  • growing individuals.
HOW SHOULD I USE Stimulfos Pet Line?

Stimulfos Pet Line can be used before, during or after stressful situations for the animal, also in conjunction with pharmacological treatments.

For best results, continuous intake for at least two weeks is always recommended.

Depending on the animal’s conditions, needs and the advice of the veterinary surgeon, the daily amount can be doubled.

Stimulfos Pet Line comes in the form of palatable tablets eaten by most animals as they are, or broken into some food that the animal appreciates. In particularly difficult subjects who do not accept tablets, these can be powdered, mixed with a small amount of water and administered by syringe.

Stimulfos Pet Line is available in two distinct formulations, for dogs and cats. They are designed to meet the specific and unique needs of the two species.

WHERE CAN I BUY Stimulfos Pet Line?

Stimulfos Pet Line can be purchased in pharmacies, drugstores, pet shops and online on specialised pet product websites.

As a complementary feed, it is a free-sale product and does not require a veterinary prescription.
