Watching your once playful puppy grow into a lethargic dog is extremely difficult. They lose mobility and are no longer energetic some even suffer from arthritis, but most dogs lose mobility before they can even be considered old. According to the American Animal Hospital Association, 1 in 5 dogs suffers from joint pain and mobility issues. Mobility issues add to the snowball effect that joint pain causes, resulting in a less active dog.
The issue is that active dogs cause a lot of wear and tear on their joints, this happens because cartilage, the cushioning between the bones, begins to thin and wear away. As a result, the ends of the bones start to rub against each other causing pain and discomfort for your dog’s hips and joints. No owner wants their pet to be uncomfortable or in pain, especially their once active pet.
The solution to this common problem is a simple one, glucosamine. Glucosamine is a natural supplement made up of amino sugar that helps relieve hip and joint pain. Typically this supplement that helps treat mild discomfort for pets suffering from arthritis so we know it works. How it works is it develops cartilage and maintains it, because when cartilage is worn away it can heal or repair itself. This supplement can be the solution to swollen joints and joint discomfort for your pet, healing your once wounded dog and reviving the active dog you know and love.
Glucosamine can be found in our 10 in 1 Multivitamin and then in our upcoming Agility + Hip and Joint supplement.
