Synoquin EFA

Nothing says more about Synoquin EFA than the testimonials from dog owners and dogs living rich and fulfilled lives. Synoquin EFA has also been featured in publications, as well as on the BBC’s The One Show.

Read some of their stories in their own words.


Suki came into my life in 2005 when she was just 2 years old. As a veterinary nurse, it is compulsory to obtain a companion in need of more than just a forever home. Suki had been involved in a Road Traffic Accident, in which she had sustained 3 fractured metatarsals of her right hind foot. After ground breaking surgery and intensive nursing, her leg was saved.

In 2007 Suki was then diagnosed with elbow dysplasia. She has since gone through bilateral partial elbow replacements. Without doubt, the combination of weight and exercise control as well as the use of Synoquin since 2006 has prolonged her life and allowed me to own the most amazing dog over the past 9 years

Tilly is nearly 13 years and months old. She was diagnosed with severe arthritis at the age of 8 years. The Vet suggested that we give her one synoquin tablet per day. Despite her age Synoquin as helped her do what she loves best, chasing and catching her ball, swimming, running through muddy puddles and rolling down hills. She is one happy and content Golden retriever who can still live life to the full despite her condition and age.

This is Piglet. For three winters he became very lame and needed months of painkillers until he recovered each spring. Last year he was so bad that even very high doses of medication weren’t helping and he was screaming in pain; we thought we would have to make the ghastly decision to put him to sleep. In a miraculous but slow recovery we put him on Synoquin full-time and this year he has stayed sound, and at the age of 14½ is still enjoying long daily walks. It’s wonderful to see him so active – and no prescription drugs!

I am Tessa, rescued from Wales when I was 5 months old.

I was quite a challenge so my mum trained me to do agility which I love. I was diagnosed with arthritis when I was only 2 and had an operation on my shoulder. 2 years later I was diagnosed with arthritis in my other shoulder. I started taking Synoquin and soon after was in no pain and able to do agility again. I am nearly 13 now and still enjoying life to the full as you can see! Thank you so much. I am a very happy, lucky dog.
P.S. I am the dog in the air!!!

My name is Archie. I am a Staffie/Westie cross Battersea rescue dog. I have been with my adoptive parents 13 years now.
Six years ago I was diagnosed with a cruciate ligament problem in my back leg. My owners decided not to have the operation but instead, on the vets advice, started me on a course of Synoquin. I have had no problems since. I am now 15 years old, still enjoy my daily walk in the park and chase the odd squirrel if he is unfortunate to cross my path. Archie xxx

P.S. I got my owner to write this as I am not yet able to work a computer.

Hello (Woof), I’m Mila, bouncy black Labrador.

Once upon a time I had lost my bounciness and although my daddy used to try and make me feel better things weren’t quite as fun as they used to be. Getting up in the morning and tackling stairs were both a struggle.

One day though daddy sniffed out something called Synoquin and before long I was back to my young self. Walks are now the same fun as they used to be and afterwards I can go upstairs and roll around on daddy’s duvet again. Synoquin… Brilliantly bouncy stuff!

Cassie came late to agility, beginning training at 10 years old. A few months later she began competing at shows. She loved it so much. When it became obvious that age was taking its toll, we started her on Synoquin and she never looked back. If we ever forgot her Synoquin eg if we were away for a few days, it was noticeable.

It was only a month before she died that I finally had to retire her from Veteran agility classes, when, due to being deaf, she became very disorientated. However she continued to come to club and our determined little fighter enjoyed a bit of agility on training nights right up until she was put to sleep aged 14. I am in no doubt that the Synoquin helped Cassie to be able to enjoy her life right up until the end.

My Miniature Wired Haired Dachshund “Boris” will be 15 years old in April 2014, and has been taking Synoquin since he was a puppy. He became lame when examined by an over enthusiastic vet. Another vet gave Boris an anti-inflammatory injection, and recommended that Ii should give him Synoquin. He has been taking Synoquin all his life, which has kept his joints supple. He is an amazing little dog. In his younger days he was always stepping it out with his friend Chezzie, a beautiful golden labrador.

Mobility was becoming more difficult for Murray, our Newfoundland, as he was getting older and our vet suggested Synoquin would help. I believe that Synoquin proved a great help in Murray’s improvement as after taking Synoquin for a short time he never struggled to get up and wasn’t sluggish any more which gave him a better attitude to life. Sadly, Murray is no longer with us, but a Newfoundland dog achieving over 12 years, is proof that Synoquin Chewable Tablets helped without which he wouldn’t have enjoyed his twilight years.

Duff developed arthritis in his right paw at the age of eight – possibly as the result of an injury, soon after which he was prescribed Synoquin. The results/improvement were almost immediate and he was able to resume his normal activities which as you will see from the attached photos included showing and gundog work. He remained fit, healthy, happy and active and retired from the show ring after Crufts 2009, aged thirteen.

Increasing his Synoquin dosage gave him three plus more pain free years with us and his three sons – during which he was as happy chasing balls, gundog training, or providing a pillow for grandchildren. He died in the summer of 2012, in his seventeenth year.

We rescued Baloo at 6 months. He is a very large dog and had been kept on a small veranda without exercise which was the cause of his Dysplasia. Synoquin is excellent, it worked very quickly to help my dogs hip Dysplasia.

– J Ashby




My dog was diagnosed with hip displacia at around 3 years old. Last year we also found he also has arthritis in his front leg and these tablets have made a world of difference to his lifestyle. We wouldn’t be without them now.

Synoquin EFA has given both my dogs a better quality of life. It enables them to run and play with a lot less pain and stiffness.

We love Synoquin EFA Cat. We started using it with Hugo just over a year ago after starting rehabilitation treatment for probable arthritis in his left hip. Alongside his acupuncture treatment since starting Synoquin, we have noticed such a difference in his mobility.

Emi was born in October 2005 and is a very shy Pekingese dog. In 2006 after being sterilised, she started loosing her fur around her neck and on her belly. Ms Nandia tried several veterinarians around Limassol and several treatments after doing analysis after analysis for Emi.

The diagnosis she received was that Emi’s problem was hormonal and psychological and this was causing her hair loss. Emi had also developed rashes and dry skin in many areas during the hot summer months. No treatment worked very well until around 2014 when she started using Coatex together with the thyroxine tablets that she was already taking. The results since then have been phenomenal. Emi’s coat has finally grown back completely and is shiny.

It certainly takes the edge off Rosie’s anxieties.  Calmex is a cheaper alternative to other products that weren’t working and was recommended to us by our vet.  Rosie is a 12 year old crossbreed and has been using Calmex for 15 months.

Before I started using Calmex I had tried just about every calming supplement on the market for Wilson for thunder and fireworks, but nothing worked.

– Jo from Aberdeenshire


Calmex works really well. It’s very calming during firework season and in stressful situations.

– Maxi from Rotherham



Lypex has my highest recommendation and thank you to VetPlus from Wills also!
