Perfect for active dogs and cats or those with stiff or sore joints, our Glucosamine and Chondroitin Tablets help maintain healthy joints. We use the most concentrated and easy-to-absorb form of glucosamine hydrochloride, which helps to protect cartilage and promotes synovial fluid production (the fluid that lubricates joints). Chondroitin works alongside the glucosamine to help maintain flexibility and mobility, keeping your pet doing what they love best!
Which pets can benefit from a joint supplement and why?
Sometimes your pet’s joints may need a bit of support to maintain their flexibility and mobility, particularly those with an active lifestyle, older animals or ones with stiff joints. Time, exercise and previous problems in the joint can affect the cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the bones in a joint, and the synovial fluid which lubricates a joint. Both of these are important to keep joints functioning well. Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets help the body to manufacture the necessary building blocks of cartilage and the synovial membrane to help support joint health.
Why Dorwest Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets?
*The correct ratio*
Glucosamine and chondroitin are the perfect partners when combined in a join supplement for dogs and cats as they have a synergistic effect, meaning they have more effect when given together than alone. However, it is important that they are given in the correct ratio to be most beneficial – there needs to be twice the amount of glucosamine to chondroitin. Our tablets each contain 400mg of glucosamine and 200mg of chondroitin.
We use glucosamine hydrochlorides as this is more easily absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract than glucosamine sulphate (within 15-30 minutes). This is particularly important for dogs and cats who have a short digestive tract and therefore a short transit time for nutrients to be absorbed.
Our impact on the environment is very important to us here at Dorwest, so both ingredients are from sustainable and ethical marine sources. They come from shellfish such as crabs and crustaceans, and most definitely not from sharks. We use glucosamine hydrochloride obtained from the shells of crustaceans, making use of something that would otherwise have been discarded. Our chondroitin is sourced from squid cartilage as another by-product of the food industry.
