How Does Glucosamine for Dogs Work
Glucosamine supplements for dogs work pretty much the same way glucosamine for humans does! Your dog’s body naturally produces glucosamine, which in turn helps produce a substance called glycosaminoglycan — which helps create and repair cartilage and other tissues in the body.
But as dogs age, their bodies create less and less glucosamine… which means less glycosaminoglycan available to repair wear and tear in the joints. Major joints like the hips, shoulders, knees, and even the spine can become stiff and uncomfortable as pups gradually lose the cushioning cartilage between their bones.
Normal joint wear and tear, aging, and joint trauma in dogs can lead to arthritis (an inflammatory joint condition that your vet may diagnose). Signs of arthritis in dogs include stiffness, unwillingness to move or play, and limping — all of which are truly heartbreaking when you know your dog would give anything just to enjoy a game of fetch pain-free!
Luckily, there’s a simple way to improve your pet’s comfort and joint mobility. By giving a high-quality hip and joint supplement like glucosamine-chondroitin with MSM, you can give your dog the glucosamine they need to help repair and restore damaged cartilage.
Active Ingredients in Our Hip and Joint Supplements for Dogs
After reviewing the scientific and veterinary research available, not to mention reading the experiences of loving dog owners all over the world, we’ve created a line of glucosamine supplements for dogs that balances three crucial ingredients for optimal joint support.
Not familiar with each ingredient? No problem. Keep reading for an easy-to-understand explanation of Paramount Pet Health glucosamine for dogs:
ACTIVE INGREDIENT #1: GLUCOSAMINE
As mentioned above, dogs’ bodies naturally create glucosamine to support healthy, joint-cushioning cartilage. But as dogs age or get sick, their ability to produce their own glucosamine slows. Giving them pure glucosamine in an easy-to-dose liquid formula is a simple, stress-free way to give your dog the nutrients they need for improved joint health.
Chondroitin is another substance that the body creates on its own. It plays an important role in helping cartilage retain water, which gives joints a thicker cushion. Just like glucosamine, you can derive chondroitin from multiple natural sources. Our Paramount Pet Health Glucosamine for Dogs includes chondroitin derived from either cow or pig cartilage. But don’t worry! If you have a sensitive or allergic pup, the chondroitin in our Vegetarian Glucosamine for Dogs is free of common allergens.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT #3: METHYL-SULFONYL METHANE (MSM)
Another ingredient that helps the body absorb the nutrients it needs from the glucosamine-chondroitin mix, MSM is a purified form of sulfur.
Liquid Glucosamine for Dogs — Our most popular formula
Don’t get us wrong: your dog is special.
But unless your pup is particularly big, particularly small, or particularly sensitive, chances are you don’t need to look further than our original Liquid Glucosamine for Dogs supplement.
Vegetarian Glucosamine for Dogs — Shellfish Free Formula
Looking for shellfish-free glucosamine for dogs? We’ll do you one better. Not only is Paramount Pet Health Vegetarian Glucosamine for Dogs not derived from shellfish, it’s 100% free of other animal-derived ingredients — making it ideal for allergic or sensitive dogs.
