Every morning I drag myself out of bed, cold nose nudging me along, for my morning run. My running partner and motivation is Floyd, a rescued Golden Retriever who will reward a good ear rub with a huge grin and loves everything about our early adventure. He is a morning dog and is anxious to get out his ya ya’s before going to work. We usually see 7 or 8 other dogs along the way. Shockingly, statistics suggest that 2 of these dogs have a need for joint support. They will have difficulty getting up, jumping into the car, finishing a walk. Because there are no nerve endings in the joint, the damage will be significant before they will communicate the signs of discomfort. Some safe and gentle ways to support healthy joint function in an active or aging dog include supplementation with:
- Joint Building Blocks: Glucosamine, Mucopolysaccharides, (Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfate, Hyaluronic Acid)
- Herbs: Yucca, Black Cohosh, Cayenne, MSM
- Anti-oxidant: Turmeric, Ginger, Devil’s Claw, Alfalfa, Vitamin C
- Circulatory stimulant: Nettle, Celery Seed
Additionally, supplements with the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) quality seal ensure extra quality standards are followed.
