Description

Glucosamine & Chondroitin:

 

Treating and preventing conditions in your dog is easier than ever with the advent of quality veterinary medication and the growing movement of safe and effective herbal supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin. Renowned for its efficacy in reducing pain and inflammation while serving as an effective arthritis treatment, glucosamine chondroitin is widely accepted by both mainstream and holistic veterinarians.

 

Facts

 

In healthy, living animals you can find both glucosamine and chondroitin stored in cartilage. Your dog's body manufactures glucosamine in an effort to keep their joints healthy. Just like humans, your dog's ability to create glucosamine is reduced as they age, resulting in arthritic symptoms and discomfort. Supplementing with glucosamine (or a glucosamine/chondroitin combination) can maintain the health of your dog's joints, alleviate discomfort and facilitate easier movement.

 

Why Give Glucosamine & Chondroitin to My Dog?

 

As many as 30 percent of dogs suffer from osteoarthritis. If you are concerned you're your pet is suffering from this condition or is at risk of developing the condition, you may want to consider supplementation before turning to prescription medications (which can cause unwanted side effects). Glucosamine is a natural supplement with a positive track record in soothing the symptoms of hip dysplasia and arthritis while restoring and regenerating damage in the joints. It also is useful in preventing arthritis in elderly or at-risk dogs. The supplement is generally effective within 14 to 30 days of beginning treatment. A University of Illinois study yielded positive results indicated that glucosamine chondroitin actually reduces enzymes which can destroy cartilage (which is how it can slow arthritis) while reducing inflammation and enhancing the activity of the cells which work to rebuild cartilage. Studies show that adding chondroitin enhances the effects of glucosamine and they work synergistically to achieve maximum results.

 

The glucosamine chondroitin combination is predominantly used as an arthritis treatment, both in humans and dogs. 

 

Some signs that your dog may be suffering from osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia include: 

• lethargy

• difficulty going up stairs

• playing or walking

• limping

• pain when touched

• aversion to being petted

• falling behind you while on a walk

• difficulty getting up

• difficulty lying down

• suddenly lying on cool floors or in shady areas (often a sign of trying to soothe joint inflammation)
