Helping osteoarthritis through Diet
September 08, 2012 at 8:40 AM
Arthritis in dogs is a very common problem, it has been estimated that 90% of older dogs have osteoarthritis
in one or more joints. In some dogs it is obvious they are in pain and struggling but for many
others it is a lot less obvious. They may simply be a little slower getting up or struggle to get in the
car when they once bounded in.
For a long time we have known the benefits of compounds like Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Fish Oil
in helping arthritis. Did you know however that it is important to have these compounds in certain rations
to be effective and it is even possible to cause damage with excessive levels of compounds like
Omega 3 fatty acids.
Eukanuba has created a food called JOINT/MOBILITY that is designed to nutritionally help manage
joint health and age related issues.
