What is Glucosamine for dogs ?
Glucosamine for dogs is a natural substance produced which aids with the repair of muscles, joints and ensures easy movement. It is especially useful within cartilage and helps to make sure this is built-up and strong.
With age however, this process slows meaning that the body no-longer produces enough glucosamine chondroitin for dogs; which in turn does not allow the body to repair its self quickly enough. This mainly affects cartilage in the joints and makes movement both painful and difficult for the dog.
By choosing to include dog joint supplements into the diet, the levels of the glucosamine chondroitin for dogs can rise and begin to rebuild the cartilage around the joints to ultimately relieve movement pain. Glucosamine tablets, or the liquid replacement, simply replenish what the body used to naturally produce and therefore can regain a dog’s youth to some extent and reduce the signs or aging within the joints. It is important that the correct glucosamine for dogs dosage is given, which is determined by different factors and can be further read about in a passage below. You should also be able to find dosage information within the product information of specific joint supplements for dogs.
