Introducing Occulus+! Enhanced lens protection.

30 de October de 2023 by Dr+Vet0

One of our two new Fall releases from Dr+Vet: the new and improved Occulus+.

This new version incorporates alpha lipoic acid and has been designed to achieve greater efficacy in lens nutrition and better protection of the visual health of dogs and cats at risk of developing geriatric, diabetic or hypocalcemia cataracts.

What is alpha lipoic acid?
Alpha lipoic acid, present in Occulus+, is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in the body and is also found in food. It is used to break down carbohydrates and generate energy. Alpha lipoic acid acts as an aldose reductase inhibitor and in combination with its ability to regenerate glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and vitamins C and E to their reduced forms, make it a potent weapon against lipid oxidation.

Its benefits for vision
Studies have shown that topical use of an aldose reductase inhibitor can prevent cataracts in diabetic dogs. Also, oral administration of alpha lipoic acid along with other antioxidants has been shown to delay the onset of cataracts in dogs, and has even shown improvement in cases where cataracts had already developed.

The usual components
We would like to remind you of the ingredients that were already part of the formula, and that continue to be essential to provide eye care:
Lutein and Zeaxanthin: These carotenoids from the Marigold flower, naturally present in the lens, have the ability to filter and absorb potentially harmful short wavelength light, reducing oxidative stress.
Minerals (Zinc and Copper): Zinc, with its antioxidant effect, and its relationship with copper, play an important role in maintaining normal ocular function and reducing oxidative stress.
Mineral (Calcium): As an essential component of aqueous humor, calcium influences ocular health and contributes to the prevention of cataracts due to hypocalcemia.
Vitamins A, C, E, D3 and K: These vitamins can protect the lens against the development and progression of cataracts, thanks to their antioxidant properties. Vitamins K and D3 have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
B vitamins: Vitamins B2, B3, B6 and B12 play a role in the prevention of nuclear and cortical opacities in the lens through their ability to maintain the cellular response to oxidative stress.

New 4-part divisible tablet format
With the new 4-part divisible format, we offer the possibility to adjust the dosage of Occulus+ according to the individual needs of each pet. This new format makes dosing more personalized and precise than with the old format.

Why Occulus+:
With Occulus+, we are redefining eye care for your pets. Administering eye drops directly into the eyes can be a challenge for both owners and pets. Discomfort and resistance to application can create a stressful experience for both. In contrast, with oral administration of vitamins in tablet form, the stress and anxiety associated with the process is significantly reduced. Oral administration is generally more acceptable to pets than the application of eye drops. Tablets, in the case of Occulus+, are generally easier to administer due to their format and palatability ensuring consistency and compliance with treatment.

How to get Occulus+?
To purchase Occulus+, you can obtain it exclusively through veterinary distributors in specialized clinics. This guarantees that you receive the product under the guidance and supervision of animal health professionals.

At Dr+Vet, our commitment is clear: to offer cutting-edge solutions for the well-being of your furry companions.
