Joint Complete for Dogs & Cats. Helps maintain joint health and flexibility
Ingredients include glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and vitamin C.
This product is specifically formulated for dogs and cats and is vet recommended. The product contains:
HYALURONIC ACID(HA), also known as hyaluronan, is an important disaccharide found in every tissue of the human body, but in particular as an essential lubricant of healthy joints not only for humans but animals too. It is part of a group of macromolecules labeled as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are primarily in cell membranes and in the intercellular matrix of connective tissue. Along with water, HA's unique property of high viscosity, and therefore low compressibility, provides vital shock absorption and lubrication properties. In the intercellular matrix, HA essentially operates with water to "bathe" cells.
Widely used in the animal industry in powder form in feed glucosamine deficiency is common among all animals. Which form is best? Glucosamine is available in several forms. The glucosamine sulfate (GS) form (stabilized with a mineral salt) is the only form clearly shown in clinical trials to be effective for osteoarthritis. Liquid delivery sytems appear to give the best results due to it's maximum absorption properties. Are there any side effects or interactions? At the amount most frequently recommended by vets and animal professionals effects have been limited to mild reversible gastrointestinal side effects.
Animal research has raised the possibility that glucosamine could contribute to insulin resistance. This effect might theoretically result from the ability of glucosamine to interfere with an enzyme needed to regulate blood sugar levels. However, available evidence does not suggest that taking glucosamine supplements will trigger or aggravate insulin resistance or high blood sugar.
Allergic reactions to this supplement appear to be rare.
The theory that Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate work synergistically in the treatment of osteoarthritis remains unproven. At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with glucosamine.
Chondroitin sulfate may be reduced in joint cartilage affected by osteoarthritis and possibly other forms of arthritis.
Approximately 12% of chondroitin sulfate taken by mouth becomes available to the joint tissues from the blood. Are there any side effects or interactions? No adverse effects have been reported. It is not known whether taking glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate in combination is a more effective treatment for osteoarthritis than taking either one by itself. At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with chondroitin sulfate.
MSM is a well known anti-inflammatory and is used to help reduce pain. Are there any side effects or interactions?
According to some anecdotal reports, MSM has been used in human research for many years in amounts above 2000 mg per day with no significant adverse effects. The affects on animals is still under scientific review.
At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with methylsulfonylmethane.
Aids in the absorption of the nutrients in the product and is vital in the over-al delivery of the ingredients. Are there any drug interactions? Certain medicines may interact with vitamin C. Refer to drug interactions for a list of those medicines.
