Should Your Dog Be Taking Joint Supplements?

Should Your Dog Be Taking Joint Supplements?


One of the most important yet often overlooked aspects of dog health is joint care.

Here’s why incorporating joint supplements into your dog's routine, regardless of age, is a wise decision.

As we all know, dogs are naturally active creatures! From fetching a ball, to going up and down stairs, to simply trotting around the house, their joints are constantly in use. Over time, this repeated motion causes wear and tear, leading to discomfort and mobility issues. That’s why a preventative supplement is crucial for ensuring that your dog remains agile and pain-free throughout their life.

Remember, taking proactive health measures will ensure our beloved four legged friends enjoy long, active, and fulfilled lives!

When should I start giving my dog Joint Supplements?

It’s a common misconception that joint supplements are only for older dogs, or those already experiencing joint issues. Actually, it’s beneficial to start these supplements early on as a preventative measure.

For young, energetic dogs, joint supplements provide the necessary support to handle their high activity levels, preventing early wear and tear on their joints. Starting joint supplements early can help protect the joints from the strain of growth spurts and vigorous play, creating a solid foundation for healthy joints for years to come.

For adult and older dogs, regular use of joint supplements can slow the progression of degenerative joint diseases which unfortunately are all too common.  If you are the proud owner of a senior pooch, joint supplements are key in managing the symptoms of arthritis and other age-related joint issues, significantly improving their quality of life.

How can I ensure I choose the right Joint supplement for my dog?

Not all joint supplements are created equal! When selecting a joint supplement for your dog, consider the following:

- Quality: Look for supplements that use high-quality, natural ingredients.

-Ease of administration: If getting your dog to swallow a pill involves a battle and the need to disguise the pills in ham, cheese or treats everyday, consider a liquid supplement, which doubles as a hydrating, refreshing drink.

-Veterinary approval: We reccommend consulting your vet before starting any new supplement to ensure it’s appropriate for your dog’s specific needs.

 Have confidence in knowing that by incorporating joint supplements into your dog’s daily routine, you’re taking a proactive step in protecting their joint health for years to come!
