May 13, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

K9 Joint Relief has recently announced the reasoning behind adding glucosamine as a main component of their dog joint supplements. This ingredient has long been utilized as a joint health-promoting supplement, although there are a variety of reasons why it was chosen by this manufacturer as a component of K9 Joint Relief, including the fact that it can be used on both young and old dogs.

Dog glucosamine is basically a sort of amino sugar that is naturally produced by the animal’s body. This supplement is scientifically known to play an integral role in the formation and repair of cartilage, which aids in healthy functioning. Cartilage is the tissue that protects and cushions the joints when they move, and glucosamine is known to provide the body with the raw materials that strengthen the cartilage.

As dogs begin to age, their bodies produce enzymes that begin to break down the cartilage, and this eventually causes pain and difficulties in moving around. Glucosamine works to inhibit these enzymes from doing just that, according to the experts.

Aging in dogs can lead to stiff joints, and over time they could find it difficult to walk. When their bodies stop producing as much glucosamine as required, the experts believe that this ends up contributing to arthritis and other associated conditions. Injuries can also have a negative impact on the joints and this also applies to surgeries that are sometimes necessary to preserve the health of the animal.

Glucosamine is a natural supplement that is produced within the body of the animal, so the side effects associated with the product are minimal. For this reason, the manufacturers of K9 Joint Relief believe that the product is beneficial for animals of all descriptions, including those who are aging and those who are still young and healthy.

Pet owners who are considering supplementing the diets of their pets with glucosamine will first need to consult with their veterinarian. This is because, firstly, the supplement can increase insulin resistance in diabetic dogs. The supplement should also not be used, as the experts state, on animals that are on blood thinning supplements. In instances where the animal is taking the supplement and their lameness persists, it is recommended by the experts that pet owners contact their vet.

The maximum strength formula advertised by K9 Joint Relief currently contains 1500 mg of glucosamine, as well as chondroitin, MSM for dogs, proline, horsetail herb, manganese, grape seed extract and boron.

K9 Joint Relief has just announced the reasoning behind adding glucosamine as the main ingredient to their dog supplement and this revolves around the benefits they believe the ingredient has on joints within the animals’ bodies, including those that are young and old.
