Hip & Joint Support for your Dog
Whether you have an old senior dog who is running out of steam or a younger dog, you should always take their health and happiness into consideration. One imperative part of your dogs health and happiness that is too often overlooked is their hip and joint health. Like people, when dogs grow older, they loose a spring in their step, because their joints stop working like they used to. Luckily for pet parents, professionals have done the research for you, and have formulated some great products that can bring the bounce back into your dogs step! Some of the products we carry for hip and joint health are below.
Naturvet - This line of natural pet products is a great place to start when looking for some daily hip & joint support! They offer liquid glucosamine DS which also has chondroitin in it, which can help reduce joint swelling. A study by the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences found that combining glucosamine with chondroitin sulfate can help reverse and repair cartilage damage. This brand also offers chewable tablets and soft chew treats as well! Naturvet also has options for cats too!
Connectin - This is one of our newer products, and it gets rave reviews online! Coming in chew and powder form, Connectin uses glucosamine, chondroitin, Hyaluronic acid, and 9 different herbs, which all have health benefits for hips and joints! Connectin has been shown to improve hip and joint health within 15 days in clinical trials.
Liquid Health - This is another brand that offers a liquid hip and joint supplement that has glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid, which are all essential components for maintaining hip and joint health in dogs.
Dogswell - These jerky treats are tasty and functional! Look for the ones that say "hip and joint" and they will have glucosamine in the treats! They come in chicken, beef, duck, and other flavors too! These treats will get your dogs tail wagging and will put a spring in their step in no time!
