Dog Treats That Aid Joint Pain and Arthritis
Joints and Arthritis: Arthritis and joint problems are on the increase to almost epidemic proportions in our dogs.
Research regarding arthritis and joint pain suggests that certain foods, treats, and additives can help alleviate the pain and stop the onset of these crippling diseases.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are the main building blocks for healthy joints and are natural compounds found in cartilage. They are the connective tissue that cushions the joints.
These two compounds also have anti-inflammatory properties. They have excellent cartilage protecting effects through a variety of different mechanisms.
Supplements you can buy for humans and pets are manufactured from the cartilage of animals such as cows, pigs, and chickens and are sold in a number of forms that includes vaccine, powder and tablet form.
However, I believe that we should get these amazing joint and arthritis treatments straight from where the labs get them from, which is the animal parts themselves.
All sizes of dogs from puppy to senior will benefit from these totally Natural Air Dried Dog Treats that are extremely high in Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin: These are naturally found in cartilage.
When dogs suffer from arthritis or bone and joint pain, these compounds can help to cushion and repair the area between joints where cartilage is missing, thin, or damaged.
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate are the primary triggers for glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues.
Similar to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, glucosamine sulphate has been shown to have unique anti-inflammatory effects.
Additionally, in some laboratory tests, the glucosamine supplement demonstrated a protective effect on the cartilage as well. These studies suggest that these two compounds may inhibit the breakdown of cartilage associated with osteoarthritis and may have the potential to help build up damaged cartilage.
This is the natural way to treat joint and arthritic pain and help build healthy joints in all stages of a dog’s life.
However, these treats should not be cooked they should be either raw or preferably air dried.
Cooking, especially at high temperatures can nullify the benefits and make the treats break into shards.
Think chicken bones. You can give raw chicken carcasses to dogs, but as soon as you cook them they become dangerous.
All the treats I sell are air dried and totally natural with no additives, colourants, preservatives they are also free range and free of any chemicals including antibiotics and growth hormones.
My research into healthy, sustainable, and more importantly natural dog treats has made me aware of the amazing amount of natural glucosamine and chondroitin there are in some of the many types of natural treats that I produce.
This has also made me realise that it would make sense to create a specific pack of treats that are very high in glucosamine and chondroitin, in both half kilo and kilo packets.
You can buy all these treats separately from my store but now you can also buy a variety pack of these special treats to aid both arthritic and healthy joints alike. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are recommended for growing puppies as well and dogs right through their lifetimes.
These are the range of my treats that have high concentrations of both Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
- Beef Gullet (Trachea)
- Beef Oxtail
- Chicken Feet
- Duck Feet
- Chicken Necks
- Chicken Wingtips
- Pig Tails
- Pigs Auricles (Inner Ear)
- Wild Boar Trotters
The Joint Health Variety Pack will include the above products depending on the ones that are in stock at the time of making up the packs.
There are further health benefits to these treats, and that is in teeth cleaning and satisfying a dog’s natural instinct and urge to chew and gnaw. Products such as dentastix are just a toxic chemical soup. I never ever feed my dogs anything that is laden with chemicals and this is especially the case for many dental chews.
