    Mobility: Is your dog more active than before? Does she have less difficulty getting up after resting? Does your dog jump more and climb stairs easier?

    Limping: Is your dog limping less and willing to put more weight on his joints?

    Joint Licking: Some dogs lick their sore joints. If this was the case for your dog, have you observed a decrease in joint licking and chewing?

    Behavioral Changes: Has your dog’s aggression level dropped?

  • Why is glucosamine so important for my dog?

    Glucosamine is a supplement commonly recommended to improve joint health and ease joint discomfort. Studies abound on its effectiveness in helping form and repair joint cartilage, the material between the bones in a joint that cushion and protect. As dogs age, the natural production of glucosamine in their body shows. Ongoing joint wear and tear and slower cartilage repair time can lead to limited joint movement, flexibility and joint discomfort. Glucosamine supplementation can help to support cartilage and joint mobility and maintains muscles.
