Billy and Margot Joint Care Treats


Glucosamine is one of the major building blocks utilised in the body’s synthesis of the lubricants and shock absorbing mechanisms necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance.

Glucosamine supplementation enhances the bodys ability to manufacture collagen and proteoglycans, which are essential for rebuilding joints and supporting synovial fluid which lubricates the joints. Collagen is a protein found in fibrous tissues such as tendon, ligament and skin, and is also abundant in the cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral discs.

When considering supplementing a dog with glucosamine, dosage is important. Dosing is determined by body: 500 mg per 25 lbs of weight. Because glucosamine is generally considered safe, there should be little concern of overdose. For acute injuries, glucosamine can be given at a triple dose for one week. For dogs who have been diagnosed with arthritis, many vets advocate a double dose for life.>
