Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula

Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula is our hip and joint supplement for dogs. Joints contain cartilage, a spongy material between bones. If cartilage degrades or becomes worn, the bones rub against each other, causing pain.

However, supplementing with glucosamine chondroitin can help rebuild and renew damaged cartilage.

We are so confident that you and your dog will love this that we offer a 60 day, 100% money-back guarantee. Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Formula is our original formula and continues to be our best selling one.

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?

Four elements make Glucosamine (C6H13NO5). It contains four elements, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, and Oxygen. It is a monosaccharide, 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 Are the Different Forms of Glucosamine?

    Glucosamine binds to salts for stability and ease of delivery. The most common forms are Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl), Glucosamine Sulfate and N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG).

  • Which Is the Most Effective Form of Glucosamine?

    Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) and Glucosamine Sulfate or Sulphate receive the most research. Both salts have tested favorably in studies. However, the active ingredient in any glucosamine salt is the glucosamine, and the hydrochloride or sulfate provides stability and delivery. Both forms have undergone rigid testing, but the HCl form is in demand in both human and pet supplements due to its success with consumers.

  • Where Does Glucosamine Come From?

    Glucosamine is a natural material from the exoskeleton of shellfish like lobsters or crabs2. Their shells contain chitin. Chitin is a complex polysaccharide and chemicals break it down into the monosaccharide, glucosamine. Shellfish is the source of most glucosamine, so manufacturers place warnings on the packaging for those who are allergic. Mushrooms and corn are other sources of glucosamine.

  • Is Glucosamine Safe for Dogs?

    Yes. It has an outstanding safety record. It is safe for dogs and is a veterinarian favorite. Most vets sell it in their practice and have for the last twenty years. Europe licenses glucosamine as a medical drug for humans.3

What Is Chondroitin for Dogs?

Chondroitin is the 2nd ingredient in Osteo-Pet® Professional Joint Care. Chondroitin consists of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. Chondroitin is a sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG) and a structural component of cartilage. It's full name is chondroitin sulfate.4

  • Where Does Chondroitin Sulfate Come From?

    Chondroitin sulfate comes from bovine (cow) trachea. Or it can come from sharks or pigs.5

  • Why Are Glucosamine and Chondroitin Combined?

    Because they have been tested together for many years. Randomized double-blind trials show a positive outcome in dogs with osteoarthritis.6 Together, these two proven nutrients rebuild worn and damaged cartilage.*

What is MSM for dogs?

MSM is short for Methylsulfonylmethane. It's 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 the Symptoms?

The two major types of arthritis are Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis causes joints to become swollen. This inflammation occurs when your dog's immune system doesn't work properly. The immune system begins to "attack" healthy tissues.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define Osteoarthritis as "a disease of the entire joint involving the cartilage, joint lining, and underlying bone." Osteoarthritis occurs as cartilage wears out or down. Dogs mature faster than people. A dog that is 6-9 years old may be past middle age, on its way to becoming a senior dog. If your dog limps, it may suffer from early onset Osteoarthritis.

The joints most prone to osteoarthritis are synovial [si-noh-vee-al] joints. Dogs with osteoarthritis lose cartilage and synovium at the ends of their bones. Synovium is a slippery membrane inside of synovial joints. The 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 Its Symptoms?

Hip dysplasia is a misalignment of the hip joints. It is due to an 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 fit smoothly into the hip's socket.

These flaws may be a genetic anomaly present from birth. They may have worsened as the dog was in its formative stage. Congenital Hip Dysplasia occurs in larger breeds of dogs like German Shepards, Mastiffs, Pit Bulls, and Rottweilers. It can also occur in smaller breeds like Basset Hounds and Bulldogs. It can even happen in toy breeds, like 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?

Glucosamine is 100% safe. A tiny percentage of dogs with food allergies may have a reaction to it. Usually, they'll have diarrhea. 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 a NSAID (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). The most common NSAIDs are Rimadyl, Novox, Deramaxx, and Meloxicam. These medicines are painkillers. They work as anti-inflammatories on the pain linked with arthritis. While glucosamine is not an NSAID or a painkiller, it works to rebuild and repair joint cartilage.

Is this the most powerful Osteo-Pet® formula available?

Our strongest joint supplement for dogs is our Osteo-Pet® Total Joint Care Formula.  It is available in a 60ct, 180ct or 720ct tablet (red label).
