Joint problems are extremely common and cover a range of conditions – from a little age related stiffness to chronic arthritis, or from a minor strain to a more serious joint problem.
All these conditions can benefit from either our fully licensed herbal medicines to relieve arthritic symptoms or from the addition of high quality dietary supplements to support the joints and maintain flexibility. Remember all our products can be given alone or may be used in conjunction with conventional treatments from your vet.
For joints that just need support to maintain flexible function give our high quality Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets to help regeneration of cartilage and enhance the manufacture of collagen to lubricate joints and sustain mobility and flexibility. This can be given with Cod Liver Oil Capsules, a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins A & D known to assist bone formation and sustain suppleness in the joints.
Always, consult your vet to identify the actual problem and to ensure on-going monitoring of the condition.
Make sure your pet is not overweight as this puts extra strain on the joints; review the diet, as some foods may aggravate the conditions, and remember that exercise should be gentle and limited to what your pet feels able to do comfortably.
For further information see our individual leaflet on this specific condition – Joint and mobility leaflet.
