Healthy Dogma K9 Mobility Hip & Joint Nutritional Additive 8 oz Tub
Dogs’ joints are made of a special connective tissue called cartilage. The collagen fibers in the cartilage can suffer abuse from oxidative stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and the wear and tear of walking on four limbs. As dogs age, the cumulative effect takes its toll on the joints and makes them stiffer, less flexible and sometimes painful. The viscosity of the joint fluid also breaks down as the dog grows older, becoming thinner and less able to cushion the joint cartilage. This leads to increased friction and wear on the cartilage surfaces of the joints, which can consequently interfere with comfortable joint function and optimal flexibility.
Fortunately, there are many natural supplements that you can add to your dog’s diet to improve joint health and reduce joint discomfort associated with age or exercise. A combination of key vitamins, minerals and antioxidants from food and herbs can help maintain your dog’s joint health.
