This study investigated the physiological and potential performance enhancing effects of velvet antler supplementation in men. Thirty-two males between the ages of 18 and 35, with at least four years of weight lifting experience, were randomly assigned using a double-blinded procedure into either a placebo or velvet antler treatment group. The placebo group received sugar pills while the treatment group received 1500 mg of velvet antler once in the morning and immediately prior to bed time. …

Chelsea is an 11 yr. old female English Setter. Prior to her chiropractic consultation, she had been limping for three weeks. Apparently, she had jumped off the porch, started favouring her left hind leg and had to be lifted on to the couch; she was struggling to go up the stairs. Before consulting me, she had been prescribed two aspirin (81 mg. each) per day as well as glucosamine. The limping, listlessness and left knee clicking continued.On examination, Chelsea was “bunny hopping”, lifting and favouring the left hind leg.
She was tender at the lowest low back vertebra (L7) and yelped when pressure was applied. Her reflexes were normal and there was no evidence of a cruciate ligament tear in the knee, (“drawer sign” exhibited normal mobility).
Chiropractic spinal adjustments were administered to relieve the spinal twisting and subsequent nerve pressure to the left hind leg. Activity was partially and temporarily restricted. Two capsules or scoops/day of CanEVA™ Pets was prescribed as Chelsea demonstrated some aging, arthritic symptoms such as clicking sounds and tenderness of the pelvic areas.
Within 6 chiropractic adjustments and two weeks of CanEVA™ Pets (Elk Velvet Antler) she was “limping less, more frisky and clicking less”. Prior to the CanEVA™ Pets and chiropractic care, Chelsea had been taking another popular glucosamine blend with no improvement.
Further improvement is anticipated with reduced frequency of chiropractic care.
Continued use of CanEVA™ Pets is recommended to maintain joint flexibility of the spine and extremities. John and Edie, Chelsea’s owners claim that she is putting more weight on her left hind leg.
“I think it’s great” was Edie’s comment!

I wanted to share an email I received earlier this week.
Our customer wrote in to say she had bought a bottle of CanEVA-K9 “in August for my parent’s Airedale that is suffering extreme muscle atrophy in his hind quarter’s due to his heart medication. …
This week I did another radio program on CFOS 560 AM about CanEVA. The host, Bob Durrant, who is very familiar with the product having used it himself and also for his old golden retriever, Dixie, was quite impressed by the word of mouth advertising we receive from our customers.
When a product works, people like to share the information and we have found that word of mouth is our best advertising. To help us utilize this on our website, we are asking customers to tell their story of how CanEVA has helped them and we will post it under the testimonials. …
