How Does Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula With Glucosamine Chondroitin Work to Restore a Dog's Damaged Hips and Joints?
Dogs can experience cartilage breakdown due to injury, everyday wear and tear, or through a natural disease called Osteoarthritis. Osteo-Pet® provides three natural nutrients that joints need to rebuild cartilage damaged by Osteoarthritis. The supplements provided are Glucosamine HCl, Chondroitin Sulfate, and MSM. Let's discuss what they are and where they come from below.
What Is Glucosamine for Dogs?
Glucosamine (C6H13NO5) is a monosaccharide that is made up of four elements, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, and Oxygen. It is an amino sugar in a crystalline compound that is in the connective tissue in synovial joints. It is a precursor for glycosaminoglycan (GAG), and GAGs are used to build the framework that supports cartilage1. Simply put, it is a primary ingredient of joint cartilage.
What Is Chondroitin for Dogs?
Chondroitin Sulfate is the next ingredient in Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Care. It is made from the elements Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, and Sulfur. Chondroitin Sulfate is a sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG) and a structural component of cartilage4.
What is MSM for dogs?
MSM is short for Methylsulfonylmethane, a natural substance high in sulfur. Disulfide bonds are the bonds between two sulfur atoms. Disulfide bonds link glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) together. MSM helps to strengthen these bonds.
What Is Dog Arthritis? What Are Its Symptoms?
There are two major types of arthritis, namely, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.
What Is Hip Dysplasia And What Are Its Symptoms?
Hip dysplasia is a misalignment of the hip joints due to abnormal bone formation or weak support from muscles and ligaments that keep the joint in place. The misalignment occurs when the ball at the head of the femur bone doesn't smoothly fit into the hip's socket.

Does Glucosamine Have Any Side Effects?What Happens with an Incorrect Dosage or Overdose?
While glucosamine is 100% safe, a tiny percentage of dogs with food allergies may have a reaction to it. Usually, they'll have diarrhea. Fortunately, the toxicity level is very small, and if you follow the recommended dosage and provide the proper amount, your dog will not have any problems.

Some frequently asked questions regarding Glucosamine for dogs.
What can I give my pet for pain? Does glucosamine chondroitin stop joint pain?
Glucosamine is a natural ingredient that is the primary building block of cartilage. However, it is not an NSAID (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). The most common NSAIDs are Rimadyl, Novox, Deramaxx, and Meloxicam. These medicines are painkillers and work as anti-inflammatories on the pain associated with arthritis. While glucosamine is not an NSAID or a painkiller, it does work to help rebuild and repair joint cartilage.
