Glucosamine & Chondroitin for Hip Dysplasia & Arthritis in Dogs

In the USA they’ve started to be used recently and dog owners have been extremely happy with the results. These two substances can be found also in many food products and we can freely say that they are in the same class as vitamins. In the beginning, North Americans were skeptical to use these two widely known vitamins for Europeans. Today, American pharmaceutical companies are rushing for making products with Glucosamine and Chondroitin  because they’ve shown tremendous results in healing dogs, cats, horses and people.

Hip Dysplasia affects many dogs and it’s the most common in large dog breeds. This condition is very painful because there comes to the bone to bone contact which is very similar to the pain seen in arthritis. When the cartilage is decreasing as they age, the dog will show signs of arthritis. Aging dogs especially can have problems with arthritis in their elbows, knees, and shoulders. In this case, Glucosamine and Chondroitin will successfully respond to this kind of pains. In any case, they can help animals that have Hip Dysplasia because of the healing effect in cartilage and reducing the pain which is involved in this disease. These two vitamins are also often used as treatments for spinal disc injuries and post operatively in dogs that have undergone joint surgery.

Middle-aged and older medium to large breed dogs can show symptoms of stiffness or limping especially in the morning until they don’t start with moving around and their daily routines. In these cases of osteoarthritis, pains can be effectively relieved by using already told substances. With using Glucosamine and Chondroitin, your aged dog will be step by step returned to normal functioning.

If you weren’t sure about giving your dog the kind of Glucosamine and Chondroitin that are intended for human consumption, it is perfectly safe.  However, you should have in mind that animal products are dosed in the correct size and often flavored so they can easily eat them.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are natural substances of every living animal. The highest concentration is found in cartilage. So, you shouldn’t be worried about using them because there wasn't any side effect in Europe since the beginning of their use (for over 20 years).  They’re well suited for long-term use and once your dog begins with using, after 8 weeks the dose can be reduced.  In some cases they should be taken until the rest of the life, and there aren’t any complications even when they’re combined with other drugs and vitamins .
