In 1996, Veterinarian Eva Skiöldebrand started a collaboration with veterinarians Scott & Pierce from Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, USA. The aim was to develop products that promote normal joint function in horses and dogs. Rood & Riddle had conducted extensive clinical studies on the effect of hyaluronic acid in equine joints. In addition, as it was shown that hyaluronic acid could be absorbed through the horse's intestine, the first hyaluronic acid product for oral use was developed.
Products containing hyaluronic acid
Products Chondrogen, Conquer & Conquest on horseback, and Complete for dogs, is now sold in most veterinary clinics in Sweden and in selected shops. The original EvaVet brand has now been rebranded as Healthy Joints and includes the products in HA series for people.
Eva Skiöldebrand developed the very first hyaluronic acid products for oral use in horses in Sweden. Today the products are well established in the market and although there are many competing products, we are proud to be responsible for the distribution of the product group ?by EvaVet? All products in the group have solid research with proven clinical efficacy behind them. We are confident that the products have a documented correct molecular weight and high concentration.
