How To Help Your Arthritic Dog

As a dog gets older arthritis can set in and make life a little bit more difficult for him or her. Fortunately a high spec canine joint supplement can make a huge difference.

When you first get your puppy, you think about all the things you’re going to do with them. Trips to the pub, the beach, the local park, long walks in the woods, splashing in streams and playing fetch. You think about how to train them, buy beds, leads, toys, bowls, travel crates and so much more. You meet other dog owners who, because of your common interest, become friends (even if you only know them as “Max’s mum”) and develop your social circle.

You somehow get through the destructiveness, the sleepless nights, the toilet training accidents, the total loss of recall and adolescent “I know best” attitude and your puppy grows into a mature dog. He becomes your best friend and shadow, with you through good times and bad, a listening ear, a permanent companion and someone you can’t imagine being without.

Then your dog starts to get old. For some it happens late in life. For others, arthritis develops far too soon. Your dog starts to slow down and things they used to enjoy and find easy become more difficult. Going up and down stairs, getting in and out of the car and sometimes even getting up after a nap can prove challenging. It’s heartbreaking to see your dog getting old and starting to struggle and naturally you start to research what you can do to help.

Some turn to hydrotherapy, massage therapy and prescription painkillers to help their dog feel more like themselves. Others prefer to save prescription medication for later in life to avoid the side effects, such as kidney and liver issues and look at finding the best canine joint supplement instead. 

Canine Premier Flex Plus is for those people. It’s a very high spec joint supplement for dogs, specifically designed for older dogs. It is specially formulated and includes super-strength Glucosamine HCL, MSM, Chondroitin and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which work together to support the health of cartilage and synovial fluid as well as Devils Claw Extract which is a natural anti-inflammatory. Canine Premier Flex Plus is a very palatable supplement which is easy to add to your dog’s regular feed and because it’s so powerful, you need to feed less, making it highly cost-effective too.

All of the ingredients in Canine Premier Flex Plus are there for a reason. Glucosamine HCL is used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid which works together with Hyaluronic Acid to help the body’s joints to maintain their natural shock-absorbing properties, particularly as the natural synovial fluid becomes thinner as a dog ages. Chondroitin Sulphate is a constituent of cartilage and works in synergy with glucosamine and Hyaluronic Acid to help maintain cartilage composition. MSM is essential for all connective tissue health and when combined with the other ingredients in this product, has a synergistic effect. Finally, and very importantly Devils Claw Extract which is the strongest form of devils claw. This is a natural pain-killer and anti-inflammatory which can make a huge difference to a dog's mobility and is what sets Canine Premier Flex Plus apart from the other canine joint supplements on the market.

So if your canine companion deserves the best, Canine Premier Flex Plus is it!

Yes, it's a very high spec joint supplement for dogs, specifically older arthritic dogs.
