Joint nutrition and your dog

As a dog ages the natural occurring glucosamine production slows down. You should start introducing joint supplements anywhere from the age of 3-5 years.

Here at Poochie Moochie Edmonton we have a few options for your dog to keep living their best life without aches.

Tri Acta is an easy to give powdered supplement. It contains, Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Methlylsulfonylmethane (MSM).

Glucosamine works by

  • Suppressing inflammation in the arthritic joint, inhibiting cartilage degradation and boosting the repair of damaged cartilage

Chondroitin is another natural substance aimed at stimulating cartilage repair. It works by

  • Reducing pain
  • Improving joint function and mobility
  • Reducing arthritic progression

MSM works to

  • Decrease chronic pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Eliminates harmful parasites in the intestines
  • Reduces allergy symptoms

Green lipped mussels are also something you can add to your dogs bowl, GLM have been researched and proven to be as affective at pain management non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs but with no damage to your dog. NSAIDS can cause ulcers, damage liver and kidneys and can cause more damage to your dogs hips and joints. 

In addition GLM can

  • Improve joint lubrication
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce stiffness and joint pain
  • Improve mobility and range of motion

Another vital thing to include in your dog's diet are Omega 3 oils, if you do not supply Omega 3 oils chances are your dogs diet is too high in Omega 6, which can lead to chronic inflammation and arthritis. For more information on different omega oils and their benefits read our article here
