Why the Partnership?

To increase people’s attention to the welfare of aging or retired working dogs, Antinol® joined hands with HKGDA to collaborate on a partnership that makes people aware that supplements are essential for the mobility and wellness of these service animals as they age.

Our Partnership

Established in 2011, Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association (HKGDA) aims to introduce guide dogs and Animal-Assisted Intervention (AAI) dogs to the public. In partnership with Antinol®, we hope to increase public awareness of the welfare of working dogs.

Antinol® proudly partnered with Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association since we believe service dogs deserve the best care possible to their joints so as to keep happiness in motion while helping human beings even after retirement.

Our partnership with Antinol® will help raise people’s awareness on the animal welfare of working dogs, as well as both the organizations: HKGDA and Antinol®. We hope to build support so that dogs in our associations can use Antinol® continuously for improving mobility. We plan the partnership with Antinol® to be long lasting. Moreover, we hope not just the services dogs from HKGDA can be benefit from Antinol®, but also advocate to our supporters on how much advantage in using Antinol®.

HKGDA’s experience with Antinol

Representative of Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association (HKGDA)

Under multiple vets' recommendations, more than 7 of our service dogs have been using Antinol® since 2021. In less than 9 months, there are already significant differences, especially on two of our retired guide dogs, Rally and Nera. The two old dogs have shown remarkable changes and they are more willing to walk and play after just using Antinol® for only 2 months. In addition, two of our serving guide dogs, Memory and Delta, as well as our three AAI (Animal Assisted Intervention) dogs who have clinical symptoms of mobility problems have also shown improvements and enjoy their daily duties more joyfully.
