Cartilage is a tissue found at the joint areas, providing the necessary smooth surface and cushion for the movement of articulating bones. Maintaining healthy joint cartilage is essential for mobility and proper joint function, and aids in injury prevention and recovery.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin work together as building blocks of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that assists with cartilage formation and repair. Chondroitin is part of a protein molecule that gives cartilage its elasticity and cushioning.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are not only for senior dogs. Wear and tear on cartilage occurs over a lifetime, starting as a puppy. A diet including Glucosamine and Chondroitin will help to support your dog's lifetime joint health.
Please also remember that maintaining the ideal weight for your dog is essential for good joint and skeletal health.
As your dog ages they can experience health problems, and their bones and hips will become more susceptible to breaks and injury. Cartilage building blocks, such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin help reduce the deterioration of the bones and hip joints and help build healthy joints and cartilage.
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine HCl is an integral building block of joints. Glucosamine is composed of glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is a substance that the body uses to build up cartilage and keep joints hydrated and flexible. Glucosamine HCl provides the raw material your dog's body needs to produce glycosaminoglycans, which are required to produce healthy new cartilage.
What is canine arthritis?
Canine arthritis is caused in part by the breakdown of joint cartilage. Cartilage is the spongy, cushiony, material found between joints and bones. When this cushion breaks down, the bones begin to rub against each other, causing stiffness and pain. It is known that canine arthritis occurs in part because not enough cartilage is produced to counteract the cartilage breakdown. The result is a thinner and thinner cushion between bones and joints.
How does glucosamine help canine arthritis and hip displasia?
Glucosamine stimulates cartilage cells (chondrocytes) to synthesize glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans which in combination with collagen, and water make up the large part of cartilage. Glucosamine also helps retain water in the joints, this acts like a lubricant which keeps bones floating in the joint without actually making contact. Taking extra Glucosamine HCl helps your dog's body restore cartilage production and results in more flexible, nourished joints. Your dog will notice the difference. When taken in combination with an additive like Chondroitin, the effects can be remarkable!
