Like a young dog... This description represents agility and a zest for life. To make sure that this is still the same for older dogs, it is important to plan in advance and give our furry friends natural supplements where possible.
Especially for large breeds, prophylactic joint support is advisable. But even if a dog already shows signs of discomfort such as a limping gait, sensitivity to pain or even swelling and joint stiffness, the healing power of nature can help.
Hyaluronic acid is important when it comes to joint pain. The substance is made by the body itself. But the concentration in the body drops with age – in dogs just as in humans. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of synovial (joint fluid) and acts as a lubricant for all joint movements. It is also contained in the articular cartilage and provides its shock-absorbing effect there, for example when jumping, running or walking. In acute arthrosis, hyaluronic acid is therefore often injected directly into the joint. Food supplements with hyaluronic acid are suitable to provide support before the issues even comes up – especially in combination with glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and gelatine hydrolysate, the cartilage can be strengthened and the entire joint system stabilised. Dr.Clauder's Mobil & Fit Joint Serum contains these components. The included devil's claw additionally has an anti-inflammatory effect. When added to food, the pleasant taste of the serum ensures empty bowls and happy dogs.
Dr.Clauder's Mobil & Fit Joint Tablets also use the active ingredient complex of chondroitin, glucosamine sulphate and gelatine hydrolysate. All three ingredients are found naturally in cartilage and joints and help to improve their stability and to retain moisture. This protects tendons and joints. In order for these components to be optimally absorbed and metabolised by the body, the tablets contain the enzymes bromelain from pineapple and papain, which is obtained from papaya. This additionally stimulates the production of cartilage mass.
Joints and bones are particularly stressed during the growth phase. In this case, you can also support your four-legged friend by providing chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine sulphate. To promote the formation of bone substance, a high calcium content is recommended. This special mineral combination can be found in Dr.Clauder's Ca/P Strengthening Powder. For the optimal supply of puppies and young dogs in the growth stage, but also for canine mothers or older dogs, the powder can be added to food and help to maintain existing bone or form new bone.
Large and heavy dogs also tend to have joint problems. Dr.Clauder's has developed the Mobil & Fit joint powder and Mobil & Fit joint pellets for this reason. With green-lipped mussel meat meal, the food supplement can be very beneficial for maintaining joint function. In combination with gelatine hydrolysate and the amino acids lysine and methionine, green-lipped mussels have traditionally supported the formation of cartilage mass and joint fluid. Due to their shape, the pellets can easily be added to dry food. If you use wet food, you can benefit from the Mobil & Fit joint powder. Cartilage and synovial fluid can be supported with green-lipped mussel meat meal and cartilage protein made from gelatine hydrolysate. With a balanced diet and targeted food supplements, our dogs can be in just as good a shape as younger dogs. No matter what age.
