Healthy joint fluid and cartilage contains glucosamine. A glucosamine supplement can help restore the damaged fluid and tissue when injury or wear and tear degrades joint fluid.
Glucosamine supplements are frequently used as a “first line” dog arthritis treatment.
Glucosamine is available in both oral and injectable preparations.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant benefitting pets’ immune systems.
Vitamin C also maintains healthy collagen levels, aiding dogs with degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis and hip dysplasia.
Green Lipped Mussel
Green lipped mussel (Perna Canaliculus) is a mollusc harvested from the beaches of New Zealand used to reduce osteoarthritis, asthma, and inflammation.
A high concentration of mucopolysaccharides, which are as important in nutrition as amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, comprise the edible shellfish.
In studies, mucopolysaccharides show anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory effects on connective tissue diseases.
A study by The American Society for Nutritional Sciences shows green lipped mussel may be particularly beneficial to dogs with symptoms of arthritis.
Some call green lipped mussel a “superfood” due to the amount of nutrients it contains.
MSM, short for methylsulfonylmethane, is a non-toxic, odorless chemical.
In nature, MSM exists in animals, plants, and humans.
In the body, MSM helps the body efficiently use vitamins and nutrients.
Supplementing MSM is beneficial for amino acids in skin. MSM decreases pressure inside cells, allowing water and nutrients to flow better inside cells. This process more effectively nourishes the body and improves skin elasticity.
Manganese is a trace mineral needed for nutrient absorption, bone development and immune-system defenses.
Manganese aids the formation of bone mass and helps balance levels of calcium and phosphorus.
Manganese can also help reduce joint inflammation.
Vitamin E is an important addition to the other vitamins and minerals.
High doses of vitamin E have an anti-inflammatory effect and may help with pain and swelling.
Aging dogs with stiff joints may benefit from vitamin E supplements for improved mobility.
For dogs 2 years or older.
