Land Art’s Formula for Pets
Did you know that collagen is indispensable for every structure in our body? Collagen is a protein that is found in large quantities, that is, 35% of all proteins present in human and animal bodies. It is considered to be the most important protein in the body because it is essential for skin health, connective tissues, muscles (tendons, ligaments) and other articulations (cartilage).
Collagen has multiple functions that include ensuring elasticity and regeneration through its reproductive process. Also, it plays an important role in energy levels, strength, endurance and vitality.
The word collagen comes from the Latin words “’colla” and “’gemen” that mean ‘produce glue’. This is why it has been popularly represented as being the ‘body’s glue’. It is therefore used to bind components together and create resistance to ensure the integrity of tissues.
In animals, 75% of the skin is made up of collagen. For both humans and animals, as we grow older, collagen production decreases, which causes tissue aging, but even deeper than that, the organs also lose tonus, the muscles loosen up and cartilage repairs in articulations become slower. This is why we call it Indispensable!
An added feature for cats and dogs, Land Art’s Collagen for Pets gives cats and dogs a beautiful coat, it improves the quality of their fur.
Collagen is recommended for :
- Arthritis, osteoarthritis (joint degeneration, injuries, genetic malformations, etc.)

We also recommend it for use on a regular basis as prevention to maintain the integrity of skin and tissues, articulations, organ and eye health.
