Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2016 -- Both glucosamine and chondroitin, whether used separately or jointly, are popular natural ingredients of nutritional supplements. People who suffer from joint pain and other symptoms of arthritis often rely on the use of these supplements. However, it appears that these ingredients are not only beneficial for humans, but also for animals.
The combination of glucosamine, MSM, and chondroitin is believed to be helpful for dogs with hip dysplasia. Glucosamine and chondroitin are well-recognized natural remedies in fighting osteoarthritis, and many people even believe that it is as effective but a safer alternative to pain relief drugs.
Unfortunately, osteoarthritis does not only affect humans, but animals too. In the United States, there are millions of dogs believed to be crippled by the condition.
"Glucosamine is a natural occurring substance in the body. It is believed to help regain joint cartilage health," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
There are many health benefits associated with the use of glucosamine. It is believed to help individuals who suffer from skin wounds, stomach problems, and joint pain. Both glucosamine and chondroitin are highly recommended by some veterinarians in treating not just dogs, but also horses, rabbits, and cats.
In dogs, hip dysplasia is the most common form of osteoarthritis. This condition typically develops among larger breeds of dogs. The smooth cartilage protects the bony surface and when it's exposed to wear and tear, the condition worsens. When the cartilage gets damaged, it results in friction between bones.
Aside from the larger breeds, aging dogs are also susceptible to hip dysplasia. The condition typically affects their elbows, shoulders, and knees. Both glucosamine and chondroitin are believed to help dogs with spinal disc injuries or have undergone joint surgery.
Hip dysplasia often results in limping or stiffness, especially during cold weather. Affected dogs may also have difficulties climbing the stairs. Glucosamine is believed to help repair the cartilage damage, and promote its regeneration. Chondroitin, on the other hand, is believed to help destroy the destructive enzymes present in the joint. The combination of the ingredients is believed to help dog with the condition.
Glucosamine supplements are not only for human sufferers of osteoarthritis, but also for dogs. There is an enormous number of glucosamine supplements available in the market today, and they can be found at health stores or online. The best supplements are those that do not only contain glucosamine but also other ingredients such as chondroitin and MSM. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a natural ingredient that is also believed to help improve joint health (amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
