Glucosamine Is One of the Top Ten Pet Supplements Today


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2014 -- Dietary supplements are a multi-billion dollar industry and even the veterinary supplement business is rapidly growing. Many pet owners today are using supplements to take care of their furry family member’s health.

There is a wide variety of supplements for pets available in the market and they are usually marketed for treating specific diseases, health maintenance, retarding aging, and boosting the immune system. Many of these supplements can be used by both humans and animals.

According to research, glucosamine is one of the top ten pet supplements today. Glucosamine is often sold alone or with a combination of other natural ingredients such as chondroitin or MSM. The supplement is available over-the-counter and in veterinary clinics.

In a pet product review, it was found that glucosamine is on top of the best pet supplements today. Other pet supplements following glucosamine are fish oil, probiotics, multivitamins, lysine, milk thistle, and digestive enzyme supplements.

“The efficacy of glucosamine supplements is not only supported by research and people who have experienced the therapeutic benefits of using the product, but also by veterinarians. Pet healthcare professionals believe that glucosamine is an effective treatment for arthritis in dogs and cats,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Animals also become prone to arthritis as they age, and it can significantly increase their risk for injuries. It is believed that glucosamine can help prevent lameness caused by osteoarthritis. It helps maintain the health of cartilage that plays a major role in a dog’s mobility.

Dr. Chris Bessent, a veterinarian that specializes in natural treatment methods for dogs and horses believes that dogs who are active should use glucosamine. There are many other veterinarians who believe that glucosamine can significantly help dogs maintain the health of their joints and prevent damage.

Several studies have also found that glucosamine can significantly help improve the overall joint health in dogs. These studies have encouraged many veterinarians to promote the use of glucosamine.

Due to the increasing number of veterinarians and pet owners who believe in the therapeutic effects of glucosamine, more companies have also sprouted in the market that are selling glucosamine. However, supplements formulated especially for dogs seem to come at a premium. Many veterinarians suggest that pet owners choose glucosamine supplements formulated for human consumption, as these are equally as effective for most family pets.
