Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs
Dogs… Who doesn’t love them! No matter how bad their day has been – they’re ready to play, go for a walk, cuddle, or sit by our sides on a moment’s notice. And to keep them by our sides, we need to keep them healthy. That’s where Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs comes in.
What Does Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs Do
Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs helps to repair, rebuild and renew your dog’s cartilage. All dogs - no matter what their size - tend to lose the natural flexibility in their joints as they age. They get stiff, they get arthritis, and they get hip dysplasia – along with all the discomfort these can bring. Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs has been shown to reduce and eliminate this discomfort. It is one of the primary building blocks of cartilage and has shown to work in three ways by:
1. Neutralizing destructive enzymes found within all joint cartilage
2. Providing the natural building blocks to synthesize new cartilage and
3. Increasing the uptake of fluid into the joints to improve joint lubrication.
What Is It Made Of
Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs is a natural ingredient that falls into the same category as vitamins. It is not a pain killer. And this is a very good thing for your dog. Pain killers - such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and Rimadyl - can upset your dog’s stomach, inflame your dog’s liver and even become addictive. Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs produces none of these side-effects and complications.
Why Get Glucosamine Specifically Formulated for Dogs
Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs differs from the glucosamine produced for humans. It is bound with ascorbic acid which helps improve the uptake of the glucosamine in dogs. It may also contain natural enhancements that work with the glucosamine chondroitin to improve the rate of healing and the reduction of pain. It is also properly dosed for dogs – dispensed based upon their weight. While the glucosamine in your local drug store will not harm your dog, it will never be as effective as that produced specifically for canines.
When and How to Use Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs
The best candidate for glucosamine chondroitin is a dog that is showing symptoms of limping or stiffness – especially in the morning or during cold weather. The stiffness tends to go away as the dog moves around and gets moderate exercise. Sometimes these dogs will have difficulty climbing stairs or getting into the car. They often moan or yip when sore spots are touched. If they have been placed on pain medications, the stiffness and other symptoms return as soon as the medication is stopped.
While these dogs are generally middle-aged and older, medium-sized to large, glucosamine chondroitin helps most dogs showing these symptoms – regardless of age or size. Relief is generally seen between 14 and 30 days. Once treatment with Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs has begun, you can expect to keep your dog on it for the rest of his or her life. Studies have shown that joint degeneration returns within four months of discontinuing Glucosamine Chondroitin for Dogs. The only exception to this rule is in very young dogs that have used glucosamine after joint surgery – usually for less than six months. In this situation, once the glucosamine chondroitin is stopped degeneration generally does not return.
