Joints

For pet-owners developing a joint care routine is essential, so stocking a comprehensive range of joint products is a must for retailers. To be sure you’re offering the best products to customers, look out for ingredients such as Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Green Lipped Mussel and Hyaluronic Acid, all of which are key components for optimum joint health. 

Just like us, our pets’ joints go through a lot, but unlike us cats and dogs can’t tell us when their joints need a little extra support. For a pet-owner, nothing is worse than seeing their beloved pet struggle, but fortunately when it comes to joint care there are high-quality, vet strength supplements available for retailers to stock.

One of the biggest causes of joint problems in pets is obesity. The extra weight puts additional and unnecessary strain on the joints, so keeping pets at a healthy weight is the first step. But that on its own is not enough – as pets age their joints will start to wear out, just like they do in humans, which can cause pain and restricted movement.

Giving cats and dogs a joint supplement as part of their daily lifestyle can help to prevent age related degeneration and keep joints healthy.
