Dog Supplements And Joint Health – What You Need To Know
Joints in dogs just like humans are prone to suffering from severe conditions such as arthritis, and certain dogs are more at risk, such as the bigger breeds and overweight dogs.
It has been estimated that at any one time around 12 million dogs in the US will be suffering from arthritis which adds up to about 20% of the US canine population.
Because of this there are a large number of medications and supplements that you can give your dog, and in this article I will be explaining the dog supplements that have been clinically proven to stop and reverse arthritis.
Arthritis in dog joints is caused by the breakdown of the cartilage at the ends of the bones that meet together to make a joint. The purpose of this cartilage is to protect the delicate ends of the bones and also aid the lubrication of the joint to make movement within your dogs joint easy.
So when this cartilage wears down in many cases the ends of the bones become exposed meaning that bone is rubbing on bare bone in a joint, which can often result in great pain and inflammation of the joint. So below we have summarised the substances within supplements that have been proven to treat and reverse the main causes of arthritis in dogs.
CM8 – CM8 or Cetyl Myristoleate as it also known was discovered in the 1960’s at the National Institute of Health. It was discovered while testing mice for their immunity to arthritis. This substance appears to have a number of functions which include acting as an immune system regulator, stopping inflammation, and acting as a natural pain reliever within joints.
Glucosamine – Glucosamine is one of the major building blocks that are bought together to make cartilage in the body. If there is a lack of it available this can lead to thinning of cartilage and also a slow down in the regeneration of damaged cartilage in your dogs joints.
Chondroitin – Chondroitin can be thought of as the foundations of the structure of cartilage. The substance provides a structure around which all of the substances within the cartilage are made. Because of this Chondroitin provides rigidity within the cartilage stopping it from being squashed and compressed. So if there is a lack of it, the cartilage can be broken down a lot easier and is much easier to compress within your dogs joints.
The substances above are the 3 major substances that can be found in supplements that contribute to healthy joint function and help to regenerate damaged joints in dogs. It is advisable to look for a supplement that contains all or a number of these substances as it has been clinically proven that they more effectively treat and prevent joint conditions when used together as a pose to an individual supplement like glucosamine. It makes sense as they all have different functions within the cartilage and around the joint.
I would also advise you to only use a supplement that is currently being used by veterinary professionals and has been clinically proven to work because dog joint supplements are not regulated as strictly as dog prescriptions drugs, so the manufacturer is often as important as the supplement itself. family guy free
What to Give a Dog With Arthritis – All You Need to Know
Arthritis is a cruel and common disease in dogs. Recent estimates have suggested that in the region of 20% of all of the dogs in the U.S suffer from the condition. Fortunately vets and doctors have been treating the condition for some time there are a lot of effective treatments that are available from your vets prescriptions and over the counter to treat dog arthritis.
Arthritis in dogs is caused by the breakdown of cartilage on the ends of the bones in a dogs joints. This in many cases leaves bone rubbing on bone if all of the cartilage has worn away. This makes the joint a lot less lubricated an free moving, which is what causes the great pain and inflammation that comes with arthritis. So the majority of the supplements that are on the market are targeted at solving the problem of cartilage breakdown, and are aimed at aiding it’s regeneration.
So in this article I will talk about the supplement’s that have been clinically proven to slow down and reverse arthritis in dogs, to answer effectively the question of what you should a give dog with arthritis.
Chondroitin – Chondroitin has an important function within cartilage. It provides the stability within the cartilage, stopping it from being squashed and compressed. Its function is to act as a biological scaffolding for all of the other parts to be built around. So if there is a lack of chondroitin available, the cartilage becomes a lot easier to squash and breakdown, and it breaksdown a lot easier.
Glucosamine – Glucosamine is one of the major building blocks of cartilage within a joint. A very good proportion of the cartilage is made up from substances that are made up from glucosamine. So if there is a lack of glucosamine this can often lead to a thinning of the cartilage and a slowing down in the speed of regeneration of the cartilage when it is damaged.
Cetyl Myristoleate – This substance was discovered by a chemist testing mice for their immunity to arthritis at the National Institute of Health in the 1960’s. It roles include acting as a natural pain reliever, regulating the immune system response and stopping inflammation of joints that is thought to be caused by an immune system response around the joint with arthritis.
So in the long term to help regenerate and reverse the cartilage breakdown a good supplement is advised with the substances discussed above included. It has been clinically proven many times that using a mixture of the substances above will be more effective at treating arthritis, as a pose to using just one substance such as glucosamine.This makes sense as all of the vital substances have different functions within the cartilage, and the joint’s of your dog.
It is also wise to only use supplements that are currently been used by vets and have been clinically proven to work because arthritis supplement’s are not regulated by the FDA, so it is as much about finding a good manufacturer, as it is about finding a good supplement. English Football
