Worried about Hip & joint Care for Dogs?
Glucosamine & Chondroitin can Help!Hip and joint care for dogs is a big concern we all have, especially as your dog ages. Unfortunately, many dogs develop some form of joint disease during their lifetime. There is a wide range of symptoms from mild to severe debilitation that can greatly affect the dog’s quality of life. The signs of joint disease are limping, stiffness, restless sleeping and reluctance to jump. Veterinarians in the United States have been prescribing Glucosamine and Chondroitin to their pet patients for several years and are pleased with the results.
Glucosamine is the major sugar found in glycosaminoglycans and hyaluronate, which are important building blocks in the synthesis and maintenance of cartilage in the joint. Glucosamine is a 2-amino derivative of glucose which is obtained through the hydrolysis of chitin, a polysaccharide found in the shell of crustaceans.
Chondroitin enhances the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and inhibits damaging enzymes in the joint. Chondroitin is a naturally occurring product found in animal cartilage. Supplemental chondroitin is derived primarily from bovine (cow) cartilage, particularly the cartilage rings of the trachea.
Glucosamine and chondroitin have become widely used in treating both animals osteoarthritis. Due to the success in treating pet patients with osteoarthritis, Glucosamine and Chondroitin have come to the vanguard of therapy and are becoming the most popular products for managing arthritis.

Looking for Vitamins & Nutrients for Your Dog?
Our Gravy is packed with the essentialsGoodness Gravy is a scientifically formulated complete multivitamin containing antioxidants, digestive enzymes and essential minerals to maintain health in dogs. Vitamins and nutrients for your dog can improve the quality of your pet's life. They help regulate body processes, protect the body from environmental toxins, and break down nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats so the body can utilize them.
Vitamins and nutrients work with minerals and enzymes for digestion, reproduction, muscle and bone growth, joint care, immune system support and maintenance of healthy skin and haircoat.
Vitamins and nutrients for dogs are important because they combine important benefits essential for your dog’s health that are lacking in dog food and treats. Goodness Gravy combines 37 essential vitamins, nutrients, enzymes and minerals to help maintain a dog’s healthy system.
Vitamins - both water and fat-soluble including vitamin A, D3, E, B1, B12, B2, B6, B9, C, K1, Niacin, Panththenic Acid, Biotin. Vitamins are necessary for tens of thousands of different chemical reactions in the body. They work in conjunction with minerals and enzymes to promote normal digestion, reproduction, muscle and bone growth and function, healthy skin and hair, clotting of blood, and the use of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates by the body.
Digestive Enzymes - including Inulin, Alpha Amylase, Cellulase, Lipase, Lactase, Neutral Protease. Digestive Enzymes help safeguard and ensure that the digestive system efficiently processes ingredients allowing them to reach the small intestine supporting absorption and deployment of nutrients in your dog’s diet.
Antioxidants – Vitamins A, C, E, Beta-carotene. Antioxidants slow down damage from free radicals and prevent further cell damage. They allow the immune system to function without interference from free radicals. Antioxidants support the immune system and can reduce inflammation and can also help aging dogs with memory problems.
Minerals - Copper, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc Choline, Calcium and Taurine. Minerals are an essential class of nutrients that must be included in a healthy, balanced diet.

Fatty Acid Fish Oils - Omega-3, Omega-6, Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Fatty acids can help coats look better. Fish oil supplements also can reduce inflammation, according to a study published in the American Journal of Veterinary Research.

Support a dog's cardiovascular system?
Goodness Gravy does several ways!With so many dogs at risk of developing heart disease as they age, it makes sense to consider how nutrition may play a role in keeping a dog's cardiovascular system as healthy and functioning during the aging process. There are several ingredients in Goodness Gravy that help support good cardiovascular function. Omega-3 fatty acids have a number of potential benefits including help with heart disease. Omega-3 reduces inflammation and can help protect against abnormal heart rhythms. Our Omega-3’s are polyunsaturated fats found in fish, the preferred source of Omega-3. Flaxseed/flaxseed oil also is high in omega-3 fatty acids but is ineffective for providing omega-3 fatty acids and should be avoided. We don't use flaxseed oil in our product. Antioxidant supplements are enzymes, minerals and vitamins that play an important role in fighting free radicals in a dog’s system. Free radicals are atoms of molecules that cause the body to age. Antioxidants slow the aging process and help fight a variety of medical disorders associated with aging including cardiovascular disease. The most common and efficient antioxidants are Vitamin A, C and E, Beta-Carotene and Selenium. All of these supplements are present in Goodness Gravy. Amino acids are essential to life. Amino Acids act as the building blocks for proteins and are critical to the proper functioning of the body. One important amino acid is Taurine which is found in heart wall muscles, in the retina and brain. A deficiency of Taurine can lead to heart disease.
Important Digestive Enzymes for Dogs?
Yes, Goodness Gravy has them too!Digestive enzymes for dogs have a dual purpose with their internal system. Enzymes can greatly improve a dog's digestion as well as aiding in the absorption of nutrients (see the connection?). We include:
- Alpha Amylase - helps with starch digestion
- Cellulase - helps with fiber digestion
- Lipase - helps with fat digestion
- Lactase - helps with dairy digestion
- Neutral Protease - helps with protein digestion
