Animal Science Glucosamine Plus
GLUCOSAMINE PLUS CHEWABLES provides 500mg of glucosamine, 250mg of chondroitin, 100mg of MSM, and green-lipped mussel 100mg to help maintain healthy canine joint function and connective tissue. This product is formulated especially for large and elderly dogs with long-standing or severe joint problems.
Healthy joints are not only important in the ability and willingness of dogs to perform well, but also for comfort in walking, climbing, and getting up and down. Joints consist of a joint cavity filled with synovial fluid that serves as both a lubricant and source of nutrition, a joint membrane, and articular cartilage that acts as a shock absorber. These components are continually being "rebuilt" to maintain strength and resilience. If any of the building blocks of these components are not available in adequate amounts, stiffness and soreness result in conditions commonly seen in large breeds and active or elderly dogs.
GLUCOSAMINE HCL is the key building block for making cartilage. Recent reports in veterinary journals have validated the benefits of glucosamine (and chondroitin) in maintaining joint health and supporting mobility and activity in dogs of all ages and sizes.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE protects existing cartilage and slows its breakdown
METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE (MSM) is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that provides sulfur essential in the formation of cartilage.
GREEN LIPPED MUSSEL strengthens the bones and supports nerve cell functioning while improving muscle, tissue, and organ stimulation.
MANGANESE ASCORBATE is essential in biochemical reactions that help form cartilage.
