Help Choosing a Dog Joint Supplement
Have you noticed your best pooch pal slowing down on walks, or less excited when you utter the word “walkies”? Just like a human joint supplement, there are various forms, ingredients, and ways in which you can try a joint supplement for your dog...so...
What is a supplement for your dog’s joints?
Typically, they will be glucosamine based and this is often combined with chondroitin. These two ingredients are the building blocks of cartilage, the material found covering the surface of bones, cushioning the joint. There are several ways in ways you can buy a joint supplement - liquid, granules, tablets, or chews and this can dictate the quality of ingredients found. Tablets, chews, or granules tend to be of better quality as a liquid-based product results in further breakdown of the beneficial ingredients, removing some of their effectiveness.
Depending on the type of product you buy, other ingredients added to the product include green lipped mussel, manganese, msm and vitamins C & E. These are added to provide further support, soothe stiffness, and help encourage better flexibility. Each of these ingredients will differ across different joint care supplements and vary in amount added to the product. It is best to do your research on the quality of ingredients, the levels of ingredients and the type of ingredients

When to use a dog joint supplement
There are various signs of joint stiffness in your dog, which can easily be missed or simply put down to old age. If you have noticed any of the below your dog, then joint support will likely help -
Is your dog sleeping more?
Dogs certainly love a snooze (up to 14 hours a day) especially after a long walk, or tearing around the local park. However, if you’ve spotted your dog sleeping a lot more it could be a sign that their joints are stiff.
Are those “shorter” walks taking longer?
Without the obvious looking like they are stiff, you might have noticed that the normal nip round the block is gradually taking longer. It could be that your stopping and waiting whilst you wait for them to catch up too. This suggests that walking is becoming more difficult for your dog – they could be in need of a joint supplement.
Is your dog finding it difficult to get up after resting?
Have you begun to notice that when your dog gets up in the morning they’ve lost their spring out of bed and when they get to follow you to door to the back garden they need more that one attempt to get up off the floor? They could even be slower to stand and this could suggest they would benefit from the use of a joint supplement.
