The wonderful natural liquid vitamin and mineral supplement known as Anitone was developed by veterinarian; Dr Jenni Ahmat, in early 2001.
Dr Ahmat (BSc BVMS) graduated from Murdoch University in 1984, and spent over 20 years in general mixed veterinary practice, before diversifying into livestock nutrition. During the late 80’s and early 90’s, Dr Ahmat specialized in horse performance, and was a pioneer of equine acupuncture and chiropractics. During the course of training her own horses, Dr Ahmat became aware of the problems that hard working horses encountered suffering from stress, ulcers and depressed appetites.
|Western Australia has ancient soils weathered into bare sands, and is profoundly deficient in minerals and organic matter. Farming WA soils profitably presents a great challenge for farmers, and raising robust livestock in WA is another challenge. Meanwhile back in the stables at home, Dr Ahmat needed to come up with an alternative to adding copious amounts of powdered supplements to the feeds of the family’s racehorses in training, who generally refused to eat them. She researched old fashioned veterinary remedies, and found an old draft horse remedy which was brewed like beer.
From this concept, she then developed Anitone - The Animal Tonic, a rich, chocolate sweet smelling fermentation of various plant extracts and humates - a complex carbon source that is a fundamental component of highly fertile soils, and almost non existent in WA sandy soils.
