Maintaining Healthy Joints
To keep your friend in great shape, nothing beats physical activity. Not only does it do wonders for your pet’s overall health, it also helps build and maintain muscle, which provides much-needed support to the joints.
Glucosamine and chondroitin
Glucosamine and chondroitin, often added to specialty pet food formulas, may help maintain healthy joints and cartilage.
Omega-3: essential fatty acids
Promoting a glossy coat and healthy skin, omega-3 fatty acids may also help reduce inflammation caused by stiff joints. Flaxseed and fish oils are excellent sources of these essential fats.
Remember that these supplements, when dosed for human consumption, might not be appropriate for animals.
Regular physical activity and a healthy diet are as important to your pet as they are to you!
