Glucosamine, A naturally occurring compound, is one of the more popular over-the-counter arthritis remedies. It is one of several natural substances, or nutraceuticals, that are known as chondroprotective agents, used in the treatment of arthritis in dogs. Glucosamine is also often used to alleviate pain and joint wear caused by hip dysplasia or other structural changes, aid in the treatment of spinal disc injury and to ease recovery from joint surgery.
Glucosamine enhances the repair of damaged cartilage, specifically articular cartilage, the moist, spongy material that forms a cushion between joints. Glucosamine is one nutraceutical often used as an early intervention and throughout the progression of arthritis, and is safe for long-term use.Top of FormBottom of Form
Banana Powder is loaded with nutrients and is a great source of potassium, an essential nutrient. Banana powder is rich in vitamin B6, vitamin C, and manganese. Banana powder may help support the cardiovascular system, provide energy, boost metabolism and maintain healthy nervous system function. Banana Powder is also high in fiber, which can help if your dog is having gastrointestinal problems, and magnesium, which promotes bone growth and helps the body produce protein.
Hydrolyzed Chicken Collagen - One of the hardest parts of aging for dogs is diminished mobility due to joint pain. Introducing supplements with collagen to a dog’s diet can help regenerate joint health and ease common age-related conditions like arthritis. Adding collagen into a dog’s diet while they’re young will help keep their joints and soft tissues strong so they can play hard well into their senior years.
Collagen plays a vital role in ensuring that dogs’ connective tissues stay flexible. In fact, it makes up 70-90% of their ligaments, muscles, and tendons! When collagen is depleted in a dog’s body, injuries like hip dysplasia and torn cruciate ligaments are more likely to occur. Collagen for dogs can help improve and maintain the integrity of their joint health even as they begin to age.
Collagen is full of amino acids like glycine, which helps keep their digestive systems balanced and healthy. Collagen aids in breaking down nutrients like proteins and soothing any agitated areas within the gastrointestinal tract. Having a healthy stomach is important for dogs of any age!
On top of the many internal health benefits of collagen for dogs, several external improvements can happen as well. For example, if a dog has itchy skin or split nails, collagen supplements will help keep their dermis properly moisturized and their nails strong. Their coat may become softer and shinier as well, which will keep old dogs looking young and young dogs feeling itch-free.
Pineapple Powder – Is a nutrient-dense supplement for dogs. Pineapple powder is rich in antioxidants, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and contains an enzyme known as bromelain, which has many purported health benefits.

Shark cartilage gives your dog the best of both worlds in one natural supplement.
Boswellia Serrata - This tree extract is said to have an NSAID-like effect. A 2004 study showed statistically significant reduction of severity and resolution of the signs of osteoarthritis in dogs, such as intermittent lameness, local pain and stiff gait, after six weeks of treatment with Boswellia serrata.
Hawthorne Berry - Hawthorn is an herb that has been used for centuries to improve cardiac function and output. Hawthorn helps support the heart and cardiovascular system in ways that no food or drug can. Hundreds of scientific studies have validated hawthorn’s usefulness for the heart. It is well known that hawthorn dilates both coronary vessels and vessels of the brain, helping to increase circulation and the transport of nutrients and oxygen throughout the body.
Another well-documented benefit of hawthorn is its ability to steady and strengthen a weak or erratic heartbeat, such as that of elderly or energetically challenged dogs.
Phosphatidylserine - Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a lipid compound called a phospholipid that covers and protects cells. PS promotes brain health and cell function. Studies have shown that supplementation with this natural phospholipid can improve cognition and memory in older dogs. It has also has properties that could impact dogs with Cushing’s disease.

Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate - is especially vital for dogs. This vitamin is responsible for glucose generation, red blood cell and nervous system function, hormone regulation, immune response, niacin synthesis, and gene activation.
Manganese - This mineral is especially important. Manganese helps ensure quality bone and cartilage. It also helps with the mitochondria function, or the cell's energy source.
