For dogs - joints

Unfortunately many dogs, even at a young age, have joint problems (including the spine). Some problems appear in certain breeds, others appear without a clear cause.
In all cases, the results and suffering are the same.

For them to function well, joints need nutrients and cartilage-protecting substances.
The role of cartilage is: to absorb shock, carry weight, transmit loads, be both flexible and elastic, while ensuring bone sliding within the joint. Joint wear is characterized at the cartilage level by a trophic deficit and a disruption of metabolism.
Containing neither nerve nor blood or lymphatic vessel, cartilage is a special tissue. For these reasons, the supply of nutrients is barely sufficient. In addition, after each cartilage damage, the reserves of these substances are quickly exhausted.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to protect a dog from any cause of joint damage, these can be, among others: hereditary conditions, accidents, shocks, malnutrition during growth, too much or not enough movement, etc.

Important nutrients
Cartilage is also made up of chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid.
The latter contributes to the lubrication of the joint and has an anti-inflammatory role. Synovial production is dependent on glucosamine which also plays a very important role in cartilage metabolism, its presence is essential to reform cartilage, it participates in the protection of the joint and the maintenance of its functional capacities.
Chondroitin sulfate ensures the elasticity of cartilage provided it is present in adequate quantities.
In order for chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine to work well, they need sulfur bonds. Sulfur (MSM) is the essential element of cohesion in cartilage; joint flexibility depends largely on these connections. In addition, sulfur has an important anti-inflammatory action.
For the healing of cartilage damage, the body must also have vitamins C and E, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.

Antioxidants play an important role in eliminating joint toxins.
Each joint problem causes significant production of toxins (free radicals). These damage healthy (cartilage) cells and cause even more damage. Antioxidants support tissue protection They are found in Canine Superflex (liquid) or Canine Superflex (tablets) , Canine Relief and Canitonic .
Canine Superflex can be administered in the event of problems such as osteoarthritis, but also in the event of stiffness and even as a preventative measure.
Certain breeds are predisposed to joint problems such as hips, elbows, etc. In this case we can consider administering Canine Superflex, as a maintenance dose, from a very young age, and this permanently.
Canine Relief (harpagophytum), being a very powerful anti-inflammatory, is recommended when the dog is visibly in pain, lame or stiffer than usual. If necessary, it can be combined with Canine Superflex (liquid) or Canine Superflex (tablets) .

Canine Relief is always administered as a treatment and is not recommended for pregnant dogs.

Canitonic and Canine Phytogel are products that also have a beneficial effect on the joints, as well as the Magnetic Dog Collar . See the file: the benefits of magnetism.
