About canine joint issues

Just like with humans, the cushioning (cartilage) between your dog’s bones can wear down at their joints, causing the bones to rub against each other. This condition, known as canine arthritis, is typically caused by age, disease or trauma. Symptoms that your pooch may be experiencing joint or hip problems include:
  • Limping
  • Favoring one leg
  • Lifting a leg in the air
  • Audible cracking or popping of hips
  • Swollen joints
  • Trouble trying to sit or stand
  • Refusing to climb stairs
  • Difficulty jumping into a car
  • Reluctance to take walks
  • General inactivity
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abnormal weight gain

Glucosamine supplements to the rescue!

Glucosamine is a compound that occurs naturally in the body, but its production wears down over time (along with your dog’s cartilage). “Glucosamine joint supplements are said to alleviate the symptoms of joint damage by boosting the repair of damaged cartilage, specifically articular cartilage, or the moist, spongy material that forms a cushion between joints,” according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). The AKC relays that glucosamine supplements may also offer the following benefits:
  • Reducing joint wear and pain stemming from hip dysplasia and other structural issues
  • Helping to treat spinal disc injuries
  • Aiding in joint surgery recovery
  • Helping performance dogs remain in peak condition

More about glucosamine for dogs

First identified in 1876, glucosamine has been used in U.S. and European veterinary practices for approximately 20 years. It is often paired with another substance called chondroitin sulfate, which also aids in cartilage repair. In addition, it may be used in conjunction with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which boasts anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and stimulates the production of collagen. Glucosamine supplements for dogs are typically available in liquid, powder, pill or tablet form. They are usually sourced from shrimp, oysters or crab shells, but can also be synthesized from plants. Most dogs experience few side effects, if any, when taking glucosamine supplements, but you should always consult a veterinarian before introducing a new supplement or medication to your four-legged family member.
