Glucosamine for Dogs

Anti Inflammatory For Dogs
PetHealth OPC is a food supplement made from a combination of bilberry, grape seed, red wine, pine bark extracts, citrus extract bioflavonoids, and glucosamine, designed to promote healthy joints and provide a strong antioxidant defense. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are bioflavonoids (complex organic plant compounds) found in fruits, vegetables and certain tree barks that provide exceptional nutritional benefits to your pet’s body. Studies have shown OPCs to be more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals. 

PetHealth OPC Formula with Glucosamine offers a unique, great-tasting powder that is sprinkled over your pet’s regular food. It represents the latest technology available today in naturally based pet food supplements. PetHealth OPC Formula is available in a tasty beef flavor that your pets will love – and you’ll love knowing that you’re doing all you can to help your pets stay health and love long, healthy lives.

Pets face many of the same issues as humans. Many pet foods are over processed and have little nutritive value. Dogs and cats breathe in the same pollution as we do, inhaling free radicals. Powerful antioxidants like OPCs help to strengthen your pet’s free radical defenses. Antioxidants promote cardiovascular health, support healthy visual acuity, promote healthy blood vessel dilation and promote healthy platelet activity.

Your Pets and Joint Health

As pets become older, antioxidants become even more important in the fight against free radicals and their associated effects on cells in joints and other tissues. All animals need joint support as they age.  Many factors can affect joint health and the integrity of cartilage, including diet, genetic make-up and activity levels. The cold wintery months can also contribute to a decline in joint comfort. Each animal's genetic code, for example, can influence the thickness and durability of its cartilage and its overall joint health. Proper nutrition, especially antioxidant supplementation, is critical in maintaining healthy joints. Glucosamine has been shown to promote the retention and normal regeneration of cartilage, support normal movement and flexibility of joints and promote joint comfort.

  1. Excellent article! I've actually read about glucosamine as an anti inflammatory for dogs, cats, and other small animals too. I have a senior pet rabbit who I've been giving a glucosamine supplement about 6 months now. I have seen slow improvement in her joint flexibility. It really is a great help for aging pets!

  2. Spot on! My dog fell ill due to joint pain and the vet said this was the only product to use for inflammation. I saw him regain mobility without pain within months.

  3. Wow, so much information to consider. I just got a puppy an it is always good o know all this information in advance. Thanks.

  4. I really like that this pet supplement is a powder that can be sprinkled over my dog’s food. Every other supplement is a huge pill that we have to trick him with by coating it in peanut butter, and sometimes we find that he was able to find it and spit it out! Supplements won’t work if your dog is too smart to take them!

  5. I've been giving this to my dog Earl for some time now. She used to be agitated all the time, but glucosamine seemed to change her around to a lovable dog. She's also lost some weight and gained some muscle, at least from what I can tell.

  6. Very informative post recommended to anybody that has a dog with joint pain. My grandma used this with her dog and she says it's been fine ever since!

  7. Well thanks for such a nice blog. It's precise and to the point. I'm looking for some glucosamine supplements for my dog and I came across a couple of sites which said that human glucosamine could not be given to dogs because it might be harmful to them. I've checked out a new glucosamine chondroitin for dogs but I'm not sure if I can give it to my dog without consulting the vet....can you please help me??
