Joint Guard

see joint guard for dogs in the shop hereJoint Guard for Dogs is a nutritional supplement that has been developed using purified ingredients clinically proven at this exact dose and ratio to be effective in the treatment of joint problems due to arthritic conditions, injury or general wear and tear.

Joint Guard for Dogs is formulated for regular, in-feed administration. Research trials on combinations of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Manganese and Vitamin C report a significant synergy between these components, and a chondroprotective effect, as well as a mild anti-inflammatory effect following regular administration. The essential components in Joint Guard serve to both reduce cartilage degeneration, and stimulate production of healthy cartilage matrix:

Glucosamine hydrochloride – a key nutrient that acts as the building block of cartilage to help reconstruct the damaged joints, as well as keeping the remaining cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. The glucosamine found in Joint Guard is guaranteed to be 99% pure, so you can be assured your dog is getting the best possible human-grade source.

Chondroitin sulphate – a major component of normal cartilage and also blocks the enzymes that break down cartilage cells. This is a unique easy-to-absorb form of Chondroitin sulphate so your dog gets the maximum available dose. Without the correct dose of Chondroitin sulfate the arthritic enzymes will continue to destroy the cartilage, making it essential to only purchase a product for your dog that contains the proven ratio.

MSM - is used during soft connective tissue synthesis e.g. in the joint capsule.

In summary, Joint Guard for Dogs:

- provides essential components required for joint cartilage repair and maintenance
