Time wears down our pets and their joints, just like it does with us. Sometimes the symptoms of aging are the same in both humans and canine, but not always. Dogs are susceptible to conditions like arthritis and osteoarthritis too, although it may be harder to determine when these ailments begin. Joint health care is not only important in the ability of dogs to perform well, but also for the comfort of dogs in routine movements such as walking, climbing stairs, and rising. If you notice difficulties in these areas, it may be wise to head to your vetinarian.
Top vets know the importance of Glucosamine and chondroitin for joint pain and inflammation relief. These ingredients work together as two major building blocks to improve the health of joint cartilage. Since the joint depends on the lubrication and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage, this is very important. Not all products work, however. The same rules apply to pet labels as they do to human labels when it comes to quality and efficacy. A supplement is only as good as the raw materials used to manufacture them with. The conditions in which they’re made also affect quality. Herbal supplements are trickier because they tend to be imported from Asia and can interact with other medications. Ask your vet to recommend what is best for your pet.

Many pet ailments are triggered by nutritional deficiencies. While good health and behavior begin with what you feed your pet – it’s the level of food nutrients their body is absorbing that matters most. Adding an enzyme to your pet’s diet helps them to receive the maximum nutrition possible. ProZyme is bio-engineering to survive the stomachs acids and works to release nutrients in the small intestine. It contains no added vitamins or herbs that could potentially be harmful. Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., author of 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, says “I highly recommend, especially for older dogs, an enzyme supplement called ProZyme which aids digestion and increases absorption of nutrients”.
So in the end, use good judgment when buying nutritional supplements for your pets just as you would for yourself. Read labels. Know the ingredients you’re looking for and don’t be fooled by sound-alikes. Be wary of statements claiming to cure diseases.
