Invigorate XL 40g 
Millpledge Veterinary 
INVIGORATE XL™ is used as a food supplement to supply the animal with the required building blocks to help rebuild joint cartilage and maintain suppleness from within the joint matrix.

Supplementing your animals with a combination of both Glucosamine & Chondroitin has a synergistic effect on maintaining the body’s ability to support and maintain healthy joint function.

It is vanilla flavoured and extremely palatable. Use one or two pinches per rat in wet food daily. For diabetic rats, divide the daily amount and administer as three equal quantities throughout the day. 40g bag for rats, photo for illustrative purposes only

  • Proven formulation.
  • No side-effects with long-term use.
  • Extremely Palatable.
  • Recommended by veterinary hospitals and veterinary teaching schools throughout Europe.

Amount of active ingredients per 5g
Glucosamine HCL 120mg
Chondroitin 48mg
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) 50mg
HA (Hyaluronic Acid) 0.2mg
Vitamin E 0.4mg
Manganese 0.5mg
Super Oxide Dismutase 0.1mg

What is Glucosamine and what does it do?
Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is the starting point for the production of new cartilage. Cartilage is fundamental to maintaining joint function. Cartilage lines the joint bone surface helping the bone surfaces to articulate properly.

What is Chondroitin and what does it do?
Chondroitin is a major component of cartilage. The key function of chondroitin is to attract fluid into cartilage which, is essential to absorb shock, nourish and lubricate the joints and maintain its spongy texture. Chondroitin is a polysaccharide. INVIGORATE XL™ provides the optimum level of Chondroitin for key animal joint structures. The greater resilience needed in weight bearing areas of the joint is provided by a higher polysaccharide content within cartilage.

Supplementing your animals with a combination of both Glucosamine & Chondroitin has a synergistic effect on maintaining the body’s ability to support and maintain healthy joint function.

What is Superoxide Dismutase and what does it do?
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that neutralises molecules of superoxide, a common and prohibitive free radical. By mopping up superoxide allows for normal joint function, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) therefore remains integral to maintaining normal tissue mass.

Superoxide Dismutase also protects Hyaluronic Acid (HA) a component of the synovial fluid lubricating the joint, from being denatured by the body. All of which enables the synovial fluid surrounding the joint to maintain its ability to absorb shock.

What is HA and what is its function?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA), included in the soluble form as the sodium salt, is a large readily absorbable glucosminoglycan and is a component of the synovial fluid surrounding a joint, providing lubrication and maintaining the ability of the joint to absorb shock by maintaining optimal viscosity of the synovial fluid. HA protects the chondrocyte cells (Cartilage) by forming a protective layer around them allowing the Cartilage to maintain its ability to perform its resistance to the stresses endured during joint movement.
