Hip & Joint Care for Dogs

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.

Delores loves the flavor of Goodness Gravy.  For me, it's easy to use.  It was hard to get Delores to take her vitamins until now!
My energetic vizsla was a picky eater. Her food sat there all day and got hard. Once I add Goodness Gravy, she licks the bowl clean!
