There are a variety of fatigue related conditions in small pets that could be improved with Corpet supplementation:
Age Related Fatigue - After a certain age, the immune system in dogs and cats do require assistance. For this reason, Coriolus versicolor is recommended as a "tonic" to assist the immune system in small animals over 10 years old.
Prior / Post Surgery - Three weeks prior to surgery, an animal´s immune system should be supported in order to assist the healing process. For four weeks after surgery the immune system should be supported to accelerate the healing process. For this reason, Coriolus versicolor supplementation is recommended to assist the immune system in animals undergoing surgery.
Viral Challenges - Certain viruses (Epstein Barr Virus and FEVL ) have been linked to rheumatism, chronic fatigue syndrome and feline leukaemia. When such viruses are detected, one should consider the use of Coriolus versicolor to support the animal´s immune system to eliminate and/ or limit the fatigue provoked by the respective virus.
Prior and During Chemotherapy - The use of chemotherapy deplete an animal´s immune system. For this reason, the use of Coriolus versicolor supplementation should be considered to support the immune system.
Palliative Cancer Care - Cancer depletes an animals´s immune system and leads to a increase in telomerase activity and decrease in interleukin 12 activity. In a recent clinical trial in 30 Stage III and Stage IV cancer patients, Coriolus versicolor supplementation demonstrated an ability to decrease telomerase activity and increase interleukin 12 activity over a 120 day period (2) . For animals in terminal phase of cancer care, Coriolus versicolor supplementation reduces fatigue and improves appetite; leading to an improvement in quality of life.
