Dog Joint Health FAQs
What are joint health supplements for dogs?
Joint health supplements for dogs are nutritional supplements that are specifically formulated to maintain & repair joint health in dogs. These supplements typically contain ingredients such as glucosamine, chondroitin, green-lipped mussel, and omega-3, which are known to help reduce inflammation, support cartilage health, and improve joint mobility.
When should I start giving my dog joint health supplements?
Joint health supplements can be given to dogs of all ages, but they are most commonly used for senior dogs or dogs that are predisposed to joint issues. If you have a breed that is known to be prone to joint problems, such as a Labrador Retriever or a German Shepherd, you may want to consider starting your dog on joint supplements at a younger age to help prevent problems from developing.
Are joint health supplements safe for dogs?
Yes, joint health supplements are generally safe for dogs. Some dogs may experience mild digestive upset, such as diarrhoea or vomiting, when first starting on a joint supplement. Although joint supplements do not commonly have side effects, if you notice any adverse reactions, it is best to speak with your veterinarian.
How long does it take for joint health supplements to work?
The length of time it takes for joint supplements to work can vary depending on the individual dog and the severity of their joint issues. Some dogs may experience improvement within a couple of weeks, while others may take several months to show improvement. It is important to be patient and consistent with supplementation, as it can take time for the body to absorb and utilise the nutrients in the supplement. You will find that most joint supplements will recommend a stronger dose for the first month to kick-start the process of repairing the joints to get them to a place that they can be maintained.
Can I give my dog human joint supplements?
While some human joint supplements may contain similar ingredients to those found in dog joint supplements, it is not recommended to give your dog human supplements. Human supplements may contain different doses or forms of the ingredients that could be harmful to dogs. It is always best to use a supplement that is specifically formulated for dogs.
About Dog Joint Supplements
It is very common for dogs to have joint, hip and arthritic problems as they grow older. In particular, the colder months can be harsh on dogs, as these problems are made worse with the low temperatures. The good news it that there are many things you can do to make your pet more comfortable. You can use a joint supplement or a mixture of different supplements to relief the pain and then strengthen the joints. You can also use heat mats, which help to improve comfort, especially in winter.
All types of dogs can get arthritis, however it is more common in larger breed dogs, as their joints have more weight to handle. Some of the most likely breeds of dogs to have joint issues are Saint Bernard's, Dachshunds, German Shepard’s, Golden Retrievers, Great Danes, Mastiffs, Newfoundlands, Old English Sheep Dogs and Rottweilers.
