Do you care about your dog’s joint health? Are you being proactive in your dog’s health regimen to include a natural joint support? Well, I think you should. I feel that as a Dog Mom with a focus on preventive health care, a natural joint support supplement for dogs is a must. Dogs and people both benefit from having healthy joints and bones.
I am always looking for natural and healthy ways to improve Dexter‘s health and hopefully prevent, postpone, or at least minimize the effects of common diseases or ailments. A healthy, species-appropriate diet is one of the most important things you can provide to help your pet thrive. Healthy dog supplements are high on my radar, and joint health is a must. The friendly team at Pet Wellbeing reached out to me about their natural pet product line, and we thought Nupro Dietary Supplement would be a great product for Dexter.
Nupro Joint Support Supplement for Dogs is comprised of ingredients that are human-grade, not animal-grade. This dog joint supplement contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and essential fatty acids in their natural raw forms. Glucosamine, MSM, and Ester-C provide healthy joint support.
Glucosamine has been successfully used to treat osteoarthritis in both pets and people. It is considered to be one of the safest treatments for aging pets. Glucosamine can relieve pain associated with joint disease, arthritis, and even hip dysplasia. When a dog ages or has joint disease, their cartilage breaks down, and they are not able to build new cartilage quickly enough. Glucosamine helps rebuild a dog’s cartilage, which decreases a dog’s pain and increases mobility. Glucosamine complex helps promote the synovial fluid that lubricates the joints.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of bioavailable sulfur, essential for the growth and repair of tendons, cartilage, and other connective tissues. MSM is an anti-inflammatory agent and helps maintain healthy fluid pressure of soft tissues.
Ester-C Chelated Mineral Blend provides dogs with extra Vitamin C to support a strong immune system and healthy joints by boosting absorption of Glucosamine Complex and MSM and promoting collagen formation.
Glucosamine, MSM, and Ester-C are great supplements for dog’s joint health. But remember, what do we need to do before giving something to our pet? We need to flip over the jar and read the entire ingredient panel. Every ingredient is important to our dog’s well-being and good health.
Nupro Dietary Supplement Ingredients: Organic While Ground Flaxseed, Norwegian Kelp, Proprietary Blend (Bee Pollen, Lactobacillus acidophilus), Glucosamine Sulfate KCI (Shellfish), MSM, Vitamin C, Shark Cartilage, Calcium Citrate, Desiccated Liver, Garlic, Lecithin, Yeast Cultures (Vegetable Source)
All the ingredients are pretty impressive; however, I did need to do a little digging on the “liver.” Why? Because the species is not stated. I want to know what kind of liver. I don’t want it to be whatever scraps are found on the cutting room floor. This also goes for things like “fish” and “meat.” I want to know what and where. Good news. The liver is pork liver, and it is also human-grade, which means it was not on the cutting room floor to get moldy.
If you do an internet search for “is garlic safe for dogs” you will come up with a lot of different answers. But don’t worry, in proper doses, garlic is beneficial to most dogs! If you are concerned, or your dog is on medications or has health issues, I urge you to contact a holistic veterinary food therapist prior to using.
The other ingredient that can be questionable is yeast cultures. Yeast can have many health benefits for dogs, including providing vitamins and maintaining healthy skin and coat. However, some dogs have allergic reactions to yeast, so it is important to keep an eye out for scratching.
So my verdict? Dexter is now using Nupro Dietary Supplement. As with any supplement or new food, we are starting slowly to ensure Dexter’s gut tolerates the change. I have been giving Dexter 1/3 of the dose in his breakfast. It’s been a week without any change in his bowels or gut. He isn’t doing any extra scratching (we are dealing with seasonal allergies right now). I will increase his dose to 2/3 for a week, then the full dose. I am happy so far with the product and plan on continuing to use it.
If you have a dog with mobility limitations, a senior dog, or a dog breed that is predisposed to joint disease, please get them on a healthy diet full of real food and then check out Nupro Dietary Supplement sold at Pet Wellbeing. Remember, your dog is counting on you for his good health.
