Joint pain of any type indicates inflammation. The single best remedy for inflammation is DogtorRx,
followed by a quality Omega 3 fish oil supplement. In addition, we recommend reducing
the amount of grains and starchy carbohydrates in the diet and increasing the amount
of protein. This can be done by feeding a better quality food, by using cannedi nstead
of dry foods, or by adding fresh foods such as eggs and meat to their diet.
Arthritic dogs improve greatly when grains are removed from the diet.
Increasing the protein and reducing the carbohydrates
will also help your dog lose weight.
Glucosamine is thought to promote the formation and repair of cartilage. Chondroitin is a cartilage
component thatis supposed to promote water retention and elasticity and to inhibit the enzymes
that break down cartilage. Side effects from these supplementsinclude gas, loose stools,
and the possibility that Glucosamine may worsen insulin resistance.
Despite the multitude of believers and supporters,
we do not recommend Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplements.
