Details

Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula is for osteoarthritis and hip dysplasia in dogs. Senior dogs take it to help restore flexibility in their joints.

How does Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula help a dog's damaged hips and joints?

It supplies the nutrients that joints need to build cartilage damaged by Osteoarthritis. There are three primary supplements used.

1) The main supplement in Osteo-Pet® is glucosamine. Glucosamine for dogs is a nutrient that cartilage uses to renew itself. It is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG).  GAGs are used to build the framework that supports cartilage1.

2) Chondroitin is the next ingredient in Osteo-Pet®. Chondroitin helps slow the breakdown of joint cartilage from enzymes that remove worn and damaged cartilage.

Randomized double-blind trials on glucosamine chondroitin for dogs have shown a positive effect in dogs with osteoarthritis2.  These proven nutrients can help rebuild worn and damaged cartilage.*

3) The last significant element in Osteo-Pet Professional Joint Formula is MSM.  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.

Rheumatoid Arthritis causes joints to become swollen.  This inflammation occurs when your dog's immune system is not working properly, and the immune system begins to "attack" healthy tissues.  

The Centers for Disease Contol and Prevention define Osteoarthritis as “a disease of the entire joint involving the cartilage, joint lining, and underlying bone”.  Osteoarthritis is when the cartilage has worn out or down.  Since dogs mature faster than people do, a dog that is 6-9 years old may be past middle age. If it is limping, it may already be suffering from early onset Osteoarthritis.

The movable joints found in animals are called synovial  joints.  If a dog has Osteoarthritis, the ends of the bones begin to lose cartilage and synovium.  Synovium is a very slippery membrane inside of synovial joints.  Loss of cartilage and synovium leads to bone rubbing against bone.  This bone rubbing against bone is painful.  Joint stiffness, slowness in getting up or down, limping or not wanting to play as much can all be symptoms of dog arthritis.

What is Hip Dysplasia and what are it's 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.

These abnormalities may be a genetic anomaly present from birth and may have worsened as the dog was still in its developmental stage. Congenital hip dysplasia usually occurs in larger breeds of dogs like German Shepards, Mastiffs, Pit Bulls, and Rottweilers, but can also occur in smaller breeds like basset hounds and bulldogs.  It can even occur in toy breeds, specifically pugs.

Hip Dysplasia symptoms are similar to osteoarthritis in dogs but involve the hip area versus the knee, elbow or ankle.

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 dog 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.
