As I mentioned in a previous post, Artie, Buddy, and Coby have been taking Lloyd & Lucy’s Hip & Joint Supplements for some time for their moving patellas (kneecaps). The key ingredient in preventing joint discomfort and immobility in dogs is glucosamine. Lloyd & Lucy’s Hip & Joint supplements contain 600 mg of glucosamine, but they also contain Chondroitin (250 mg), MSM (300 mg), and Vitamin C (100 mg). It is the combination of these ingredients that helps maximize joint health and mobility.
Today I want to discuss the importance of Chondroitin. As I found out from PetMD, Chondroitin may be beneficial to joint health as well as cartilage health. Research on Chondroitin has shown that it can repair damaged connective tissues, prevent stress injuries to joints, prevent cartilage from breaking down prematurely, slow down disease, keep cartilage tissue hydrated, and reduce join pain.
Chondroitin, naturally produced by the body, decreases with age so supplementation is important for older dogs. Especially those who may be susceptible to arthritis or other joint related diseases. Because my dogs have been diagnosed with a condition already, my hope is that supplementation will slow down further damage. My dogs consider this supplement a treat, so giving it to them each morning is a breeze.
