Joint disorders in Dogs
Joint disorders are relatively common in dogs. Benefits of special nutrients can help manage health and joint mobility.
Nutrients a key to good health
Nutrients such as chondroitin sulphate, glucosamine; minerals such as copper, manganese and zinc protect the joint cartilage and also play a role in the repair process. The anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties of EPA/DHA (Omega-3 fatty acids) help to ease joint complaints. A combination of antioxidants (vitamin E, vitamin C, lutein and taurine) helps protect the body against the harmful effects of free radicals. The Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) is a special mussel harvested in New Zealand. GLM is a natural source of chondroitin sulphate, EPA/DHA (Omega-3 fatty acids.) GLM also contains amino acids, vitamins (E and C) and minerals (zinc, copper and manganese).
