Research Shows Glucosamine Can Potentially Aid in Feline Health Problems


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2014 -- Glucosamine is a widely used natural remedy for human medical conditions, such as arthritis. It is believed to be a safer and more long-term alternative to prescription drugs. Some studies are now suggesting that glucosamine is not only good for humans, but animals too.

Research shows glucosamine can potentially aid in feline health problems. The natural alternative has been considered for use in managing feline arthritis. According to clinical studies, it can help stimulate new growth in the cartilage of cats that have irritated and weak joints.

"Cat owners may notice some positive changes in the symptoms normally experienced by their pets. For instance, cats who take glucosamine may have a higher chance of experiencing decreased pain levels in arthritic joints," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Aside from its impressive effects on cartilage health, glucosamine is also believed to help with feline lower urinary tract disorder. According to experts, glucosamine can aid in feline urinary problems by replenishing the chemical called glycosaminoglycans, also known as GAGs.

GAGs help create a water barrier that provides protection to the cells of the urinary tract. This chemical is normally found in the bladder's mucous lining and it is believed that glucosamine can significantly help replenish it. This replenishment can possibly increase the strength of protection in the bladder lining against the detrimental effects of feline lower urinary tract disorder.

Feline lower urinary tract disease can compel a cat to repeatedly attempt to urinate, but unsuccessfully relieve its bladder. Owners may even see blood in the cat's urine or hear it crying while trying to urinate.

"Some veterinarians recommend the use of glucosamine to help cats find pain relief while urinating. So far there have been quite a number of cat owners who claim that the natural supplements has been beneficial to their pet's health," added O'Sullivan.

Glucosamine is fast becoming a natural supplement that is highly recommended by veterinarians for cats that are suffering from joint or urinary problems. Some suggest consumers look for a supplement that also contains other natural ingredients such as turmeric, MSM and chondroitin
