Today we are sharing a guest post by Wag Lifetime Joint Care. Joint supplements are a hot topic around our household, with two active seniors (one with arthritis) and one young pup with knee issues (you can read about Luke’s luxating patella by clicking here). Next week we will be sharing our own review of this product, along with a giveaway!
What Age Should I Start My Dog on a Joint Supplement?
This is an excellent question that we at Pet Research receive regularly. Each dog has different needs, but one need that most dogs have is the need for joint support and care. As a dog ages, their body’s ability to produce natural glucosamine reduces, leaving them at risk for canine arthritis and joint pain.
Don’t wait until your dog is limping or slowing down…
It’s tempting to invest in a joint supplement when our dog begins exhibiting the symptoms of canine arthritis like…
- slowing down, difficulty standing
- limping, not putting weight on a leg
- licking at joints (to alleviate pain)
Dogs instinctually mask their pain and by the time we see evidence of their pain, they’ve been hurting for a long period of time and their pain has reached a point where it can’t be masked.
Should I add a joint supplement to my puppy’s diet?
Although dogs of all ages and sizes can enjoy the benefits of Wag Lifetime Joint Care, a healthy puppy is still producing glucosamine for their growing bones and joints and may not need the support of a joint supplement. However, some breeds are prone to canine arthritis, hip dysplasia, or elbow dysplasia. A quality joint supplement not only helps to repair joint damage, it will help prevent damage too.
If a puppy begins displaying symptoms of joint pain, seek care and advice from your veterinarian and discuss the use and benefits of a joint supplement.
