Joints are specialised structures all dogs depend upon. When joints are healthy and functioning as they should, they facilitate free and easy movement, allowing dogs to manoeuvre their bodies without pain. For active dogs, joint health influences life quality and mechanical problems can have a huge impact on a dog’s physical and mental well-being, whether it is a young, old, active or sedentary animal.
While not all joint problems are preventable, involving supplements is a sensible investment for the future, as these contain the key ingredients needed for joint tissue repair and renewal. In fact, many people now include joint supplements as a staple part of their dog's diet, whether or not there is an existing problem to treat.
