Good joint health is crucial to your companion animal’s wellbeing. The ability to walk, run, jump, to move … these physical activities represent a large part of companion animals’ lives, including their unique ability to express themselves. Unfortunately, aching and/or stiff joints are just as much a part of aging for them as it is for humans. Here are some common symptoms of joint and/or flexibility problems:
  • Reluctance to use stairs
  • Difficulty getting up from a prone position
  • Joints that pop or crack
  • Stiffness in the morning or immediately after a long nap
  • Unwillingness to jump, either on or off of furniture

It is always advisable that you consult with your veterinarian when you suspect that your pet may be suffering in any way.

With dogs that are at-risk for hip dysplasia, it’s important that they get exercise to help slow the progression of the condition, but avoid taking them for very long or fast walks. Additionally, providing them with an orthopedic bed may help to make them more comfortable when resting.

So, what is the best way to address joint health issues? Dr. Jane suggests two complimentary products to help both reduce body weight and improve joint health – using an appropriate food, like Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula, in tandem with a supplement like Agility for Dogs and Cats. We’ll provide more details about HealthyPetNet’s Weight-Loss food on page 3 of this newsletter.

At present, there are several joint formulas marketed for companion animals. Unfortunately, most of these products treat the joint as an isolated goal; it is for this reason that they do not work as well as they could. Agility for Dogs and Cats is a holistic formula, which means that it takes into account the needs of the whole body and all the parts that work with the joints.

This formula contains optimal levels of the nutrients necessary to help maintain healthy joint cartilage and connective tissue, and to aid in the production of healthy synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints. This supplement features Glucosamine and MSM, and is a natural, holistic, multi-action joint support formula containing scientifically-tested ingredients.

Glucosamine helps maintain and promote joint and connective tissue health. It has been shown to be essential in the healthy development and ongoing maintenance of connective tissue and synovial fluid. Research studies indicate that Glucosamine may promote joint flexibility, mobility and lubrication, and may even play a role in rebuilding cartilage.
