Glucosamine for the dog
Glucosamine is an amino sugar. It is a natural component of cartilage, connective tissue and synovial fluid in dogs (as well as humans).
Use of glucosamine
Glucosamine is used in various dietary supplements for dogs. The manufacturers promise positive effects for the joint health by the use of such a preparation above all. Glucosamine is intended to supply cartilage, tendons, ligaments and synovial fluid and help with mobility problems.
There are both food supplements containing only glucosamine and preparations in which the amino sugar is combined with other active ingredients such as chondroitin and MSM.
Effect of glucosamine
Glucosamine is undoubtedly an important nutrient that should not be missing in the joints of dogs. On its own, however, its effect is manageable. It is therefore more advisable to use a preparation with other nutrients that are important for joint health.
Because above all if it concerns a dog with existing joint illnesses, a clearly better effectiveness can be obtained with the correct active substance combination.
Bellfor joints & bones with glucosamine
One preparation that does not rely solely on glucosamine for its effect is Bellfor Joints & Bones, for example. This natural food supplement contains Ovopet. Ovopet is derived from the egg shell membrane of chicken eggs and can be given to dogs as capsules or in the form of biscuits.
Ovopet contains a total of more than 500 different active ingredients, of which the following are particularly important for joint health:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Chondroitin sulphate
This well-tolerated dietary supplement is suitable for older animals as well as for sports dogs whose joints are exposed to particular stress and dogs with joint diseases such as osteoarthritis or elbow dysplasia.
In dogs with joint problems, the dietary supplement Bellfor Joints & Bones often already after about 20 days first successes.
Auxilium Salutis as supplementary pain therapy
If your dog suffers from joint problems, this is usually associated with severe pain. If you want to counteract this pain in a natural way, we recommend the administration of Auxilium Salutis in addition to Bellfor Joints & Bones.
Auxilium Salutis is one of our five percent CBD oils for dogs. The abbreviation CBD stands for Cannabidiol, an active ingredient naturally found in hemp plants, which is used with great success in pain therapy.
Since CBD has no significant side effects, it may also be a digestible alternative to classic painkillers for your dog, which you can try out without worrying about his health.
Glucosamine for dogs - our conclusion
Glucosamine is undoubtedly suitable as an active ingredient in dietary supplements for joint health. However, amino sugar only develops its full effectiveness in combination with other active ingredients such as Bellfor Joints & Bones.
But convince yourself and test Bellfor Joints & Bones with Glucosamine and our Auxilium Elixir on your dog. We are sure that the effect will also inspire you.
