Benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin for Dogs
It is just as important for dogs to maintain healthy joints as it is for humans. Like humans, dog’s joints weaken and eventually break down completely with age. Many dog owners do not realize that a decrease in a dog’s activity often correlates to already weak joints or developing osteoarthritis. For both growing and mature dogs, consistent intake of the naturally occurring sources of Chondroitin and Glucosamine helps maintain healthy joints and prevents osteoarthritis, which is particularly important for large dog breeds that are prone to Hip Dysplasia. Chondroitin and Glucosamine synthesize in the dog’s body and help heal joint cartilage throughout the body, which eases the pain already experienced by arthritic dogs and allows middle-aged dogs to remain active and vibrant.
Regular use of all-natural dog chews containing Chondroitin and Glucosamine is widely accepted and a variety of such products are becoming more readily available in the U.S. market. Unfortunately, most pet owners are either unaware that these products exist or are uninformed of where to acquire them.
BestBullySticks.com recently began carrying two treats, The Trachea Dog Chew and Stuffed Gullets, both of which are high in Chondroitin and Glucosamine. These naturally occurring sources are most commonly found in two areas of a cow – the trachea or windpipe and the esophagus or food pipe. The Beef Trachea Dog Chew closely resembles the Bully Stick, in that it is consumed over a long period of time and is not your traditional “quick treat”. If given on a regular basis, the Trachea Dog Chew also helps clean teeth and keeps gums healthy! The Stuffed Gullets, on the other hand, resemble the traditional dog treat because they are consumed quickly. Like all of its products, BestBullySticks.com carries both The Trachea Dog Chew and Stuffed Gullets in multiple sizes. As always, owners should use discretion when selecting the length and size of each product.
