The following checklist may help you identify the need for additional nutritional support to assist with repair and maintenance for healthy hips and joints:

Limps after exercise

Reluctant to climb stairs

Reluctant to jump into vehicle

Stiff for awhile after getting up from rest

Tires easily while exercising

Reluctant to engage in exercise

Rests more often than usual

Bites or licks at certain joints on legs

Is uncomfortable when touched on hips or tail and other joints

Does not seem comfortable when squatting to eliminate waste

Doesn’t want to sit or stand; prefers to lie down

Liquid Formula for Enhanced Absorption:It is important to find a pet supplement offering the advantage of a LIQUID formula that contains high-potency glucosamine and chondroitin as well as other liquid antioxidants and nutrients. Any specialized liquid formula should NOT contain binders, fillers and coatings needed in solid tablets and capsules which can cause allergies and sensitivity, and which slow down the absorption process.

Pet Supplements should have these high-potency impact ingredients:

Glucosamine HCL/Sulfate – Building block for cartilage and joint repair

Chondroitin – Support for synovium fluid and lubrication

MSM – Protein synthesis and enzyme function for tendons and cartilage

Type II Collagen – Formation of cartilage and anti-inflammatory support

L-Proline – Synthesis of collagen (protein) for formation of connective tissue

Vitamin C – Collagen support for ligaments, bones and joint repair

Manganese, Boron, Calcium and Magnesium – Healthy bone formation and joint flexibiliy

These Active Ingredients have been used effectively to support the formation and maintenance of new cartilage, tendons and ligaments in humans and animals. The inclusion of Type II Collagen and L-Proline is hard to find in the marketplace but it is extremely vital plus it aids in cartilage, connective tissue and anti-inflammatory support. Vitamin C and Grape Seed Extract as well are other key minerals which assist muscle and bone repair and maintenance of healthy hips and joints.

Middle-aged and Older Dogs: These ingredients have been shown effective in supporting cartilage formation for dogs showing the effects of osteoarthritis (bone density/strength challenges). The nutritional support also assists with joint mobility, comfort and bone/tendon strength. As dogs age, the maintenance of healthy joints is essential since constant wearing down of cartilage needs repair.

Young Dogs: Veterinarians recommend glucosamine in younger animals as it delays the onset of joint damage while dogs participate in daily activities of running and jumping. These ingredients are effective in maintaining healthy joint function especially for dogs who experience cartilage reduction due to physical stress from strenuous physical activity and nutrient deficiencies. In addition, chondroitin promotes synovium fluid health to promote joint flexibility.

In conclusion, you should make sure that the pet supplement you select provides veterinarian recommended, ultra pure and high-potency nutrients to support healthy hip and joint mobility for active dogs and delivered in an all-liquid design is formulated for enhanced absorption and performance for:

Joint Mobility

Cartilage Health

Joint Comfort
