Some dogs are more prone to joint issues than others, particularly in large dogs and in some specific breeds including Bulldogs, Labrador Retrievers, Dachshunds, and German Shepherds. An unfortunate fact of life for dogs is that by the time they hit their senior years, the majority of them will have pain associated with their joints. If your dog is having joint issues, you might notice it in the form of limping, stiffness, or lameness. You might see them become more lethargic, irritable, or having more accidents in the house. They might even be reluctant to jump in the car or walk up the stairs.
The ingredients in Joint Support’s formula have been shown to:
- Help support comfort and activity levels
- Lessens morning stiffness
We’ve created a treat that addresses that problem. Our Joint Support Chicken and Sweet Potato treats support healthy mobility, comfort, and activity levels and lessen morning stiffness. The following is the list of ingredients and descriptions of each.
Glucosamine Sulfate (Shellfish)
Cartilage, which is the tissue that cushions joints, has a natural compound in it called glucosamine. Glucosamine sulfate, sourced from shellfish, is widely used to support joint health. Glucosamine has been used by humans for years to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
You might be familiar with turmeric because it is used in many curry powders, but this common spice is also known for its use in treating many ailments. Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family and contains the chemical curcumin. As an antioxidant, curcumin helps to maintain healthy pain states in the body. Turmeric has been used in Asian medicine for many years to treat a variety of illnesses, mainly because of its antioxidant effects.
Cassava is a starch tuber that is grated to make flour. It’s often used as a substitute for wheat flour and gluten-free foods. Cassava flour is a low-calorie ingredient and is also low in fat and sugar, but is rich in vitamin C, making it a healthful inactive ingredient in our treats.
An ingredient that will make your dog crave our treats is chicken paste. While it might not sound particularly tasty to humans, it’s the ingredient that adds tons of flavor but has the added benefit of protein that all dogs require.
Rich in fiber, protein, and MCTs, coconut flour is a gluten-free ingredient that can help promote stable blood sugar, heart health, and proper digestion. While many coconut products are high in saturated fats (the bad fat), when coconut flour is processed, the saturated fat is removed. Also, this flour contains more fiber and protein than wheat flour.
Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious. They contain fiber, vitamins, and minerals, but they’re really known for their vitamin A content, which is known for benefiting the immune system and eyesight. When dogs are deficient in vitamin A, their skin and coat will not look healthy, but they can also suffer from night blindness if deficient enough.
This chemical additive is widely used as a preservative in food. It is odorless and imparts no taste to food – it’s simply used, in extremely small quantities, as a preservative.
PetSoothe’s Joint Support formula is designed to help support healthy mobility in dogs.
Many pets develop mobility issues that can prevent them from the quality of life they are used to having. Some pets develop health problems later in life that can limit their mobility. We always want the best for our pets and we want them to feel good and to get around the way they want to, and that’s exactly why we embarked on this CBD venture. Our focus is on creating high-quality treats for dogs that add value to their lives and give them a chance at heightened mobility.
