Glucosamine for dogs with Essential Fatty Acids and MSM
Osteo-Pet® Glucosamine for dogs joint complex is our simplest formula, and it's also our cheapest. It is an inexpensive alternative to some of the pricier glucosamine formulas you'll find in pet stores and veterinarian's offices.
It uses glucosamine as its primary ingredient. Glucosamine is the "workhorse" of any dog joint formula. It assists by providing the framework needed to build cartilage.
Osteo-Pet® also has the antioxidants vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C. This antioxidant complex works to protect synovial joints from free radicals and oxidants that accelerate the breakdown of cartilage and joint tissues.
Because joints can sometimes become inflamed, we've added essential fatty acids (EFAs) to this formula. Essential fatty acids, specifically Omega 3 fish oils, have been studied for their anti-inflammatory action. Studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids are used to create anti-inflammatory prostaglandins that can help fight inflammation and joint pain.
The primary benefits of Osteo-Pet® are the following:
One last issue to consider: Since canine arthritis, hip dysplasia and other forms of joint cartilage breakdown can occur during your dog's younger years, it's important to source glucosamine supplement for your dogs in their youth. It can help maintain the joints of your pet today and in the future.
Osteo-Pet® products are proudly made in the USA.

Some frequently asked questions regarding Glucosamine for dogs.
Can dogs take human glucosamine? Yes, dogs can take human glucosamine. However, be aware that humans can ingest and process certain ingredients that pets cannot take. Some examples - High levels of aspirin can be toxic to cats, and some joint formulas have white willow bark that is similar in composition to aspirin. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is poisonous to dogs, yet we have heard of owners giving their pets calcium supplements in a chocolate base. Please be careful what you give to your pet
Is it ok to give Sundown's Osteo Bi-Flex® glucosamine chondroitin to my dog? Some of our customers have previously fed their dog glucosamine products like Osteo Bi-Flex®, Schiff Move Free® or other brands of glucosamine found here at Marvelous Products or in health food stores with no negative effects and positive comments on how well their dog is moving freely again. However, Nutra Paws Osteo-Pet® Glucosamine for dogs is specially formulated for dogs, and has the following benefits:
What is the difference in quality between human glucosamine and dog glucosamine? Glucosamine is bought and sold as a powder and does not have a separate category for humans or dogs. Other manufacturers may use a lower strength of glucosamine, typically 90% vs. the 99% that Osteo-Pet® uses. Osteo-Pet® uses the 99% Glucosamine hydrochloride, which is what veterinarians and pet owners prefer.
What is the difference between Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Glucosamine Sulfate? Both are great forms of glucosamine, however, the studies that have been conducted on glucosamine show that glucosamine hydrochloride is absorbed by the body faster. There have also been many more clinical studies on the hydrochloride form. All Osteo-Pet® Glucosamine for dogs formulas use glucosamine hydrochloride.
What is the difference between a liquid glucosamine and glucosamine in a treat? While both methods are absorbed by the body quickly, we prefer tablets or chewables because they are easy to give to our dogs. Many customers find it convenient to offer Osteo-Pet® by handing it to their dog as a treat whenever they want. However, some dogs are pickier than others and want a liquid that goes over their food. Liquids can help mask the smell of many of the ingredients that picker dogs may avoid. Learn more about our Osteo-Pet liquid glucosamine for dogs and its benefits.
