1 in 5 Dogs Will Suffer from Arthritis

Is your dog one of them?
Joint and hip problems can stop an active dog in his tracks. Studies show that 1 in every 5 dogs will develop painful arthritis causing joint and hip problems, lameness, swollen joints and muscle atrophy.

And if you have a Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, Newfoundland or St. Bernard the risk for arthritis skyrockets to 70 or 80 percent – that's 4 out of every 5 dogs!

Nutri-Vet If your dog seems to be "slowing down," don't assume it's just because he's getting older. There's a good chance it could be arthritis. And if your dog has arthritis, he's probably in a lot of pain – even if he doesn't show it.

Arthritis pain will make your dog less active. He'll slow down and stop doing the things that make him happy. But a good glucosamine supplement like Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint can make a world of difference – and the sooner he starts taking it, the better.

Dogs are good at "hiding" their pain

Nutri-Vet
When dogs are ill or injured, they are very good at hiding their pain. It’s a survival mechanism. In the wild, a sick dog becomes easy prey for other predatory animals. So dogs have become quite skilled at masking their pain.

If your dog has painful arthritis, he may show it … but chances are he may not. It’s up to you to be on the lookout for symptoms and to also understand your dog’s risk factors so this disease can be diagnosed as early as possible.

If your dog is symptomatic, you may notice that he is less active. He may move slower. He may have trouble climbing, jumping or running. Maybe he can’t jump up on the sofa or get into the car as easily as he did before. You may also notice a dry crackling sound when your dog’s joints move.

Risk factors for arthritis and joint problems

Certain risk factors increase a dog's likelihood for painful joint conditions. They include: Nutri-Vet
  • Genetics / breed
  • Obesity
  • Joint abnormalities like hip dysplasia
  • Trauma / injury
  • Excessive joint stress in highly active dogs
  • Infection
  • Age (problems develop from years of wear and tear on cartilage and joints)
  • Diet (Dogs eat primarily red meat. It is high in uric acid, which has been shown to cause arthritic-type conditions.)



If your dog is at risk for arthritis, a good glucosamine supplement can make a world of difference. Glucosamine is a natural compound found in healthy cartilage. Recent studies prove that glucosamine supplements have an anti-inflammatory effect and can be a very beneficial treatment for arthritic conditions in humans and animals. This daily supplement can help keep your dog’s joints and bones healthy and strong.

Even if your dog is not symptomatic, if he has any of the risk factors for arthritis, he could already have the disease or he is quite likely to develop it. The sooner he begins taking glucosamine the better. It will give his bones and joints the healthy support they need to stay healthy longer so he can enjoy a full active life without pain and mobility problems.

Veterinarians recommend Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint Chewables. They have the tasty liver flavor dogs love and they give your dog the healthy joint support he needs to live a happy, active pain-free life.

Painful arthritis ... what you can do to help

Nutri-Vet Extra weight puts extra stress on your dog's bones and joints. If your dog is overweight, put him on a healthy weight loss program. Cut back on food portions or switch to a food that is designed for weight management. Cut out unhealthy treats. Help your dog burn more calories by making sure he gets plenty of healthy exercise.

If your dog's weight, age or breed put him at risk for developing arthritis, be on the lookout for the earliest sign of problems.

If your dog has arthritis, get him a soft comfy bed. If you have slippery tile or wood floors,

cover them with carpet. Ramps and soft modular cubes can help your dog get into the car and climb stairs more easily. A good massage can help increase your dog's flexibility and circulation while helping to relieve the pain of aching joints.

Start your dog on Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint as soon as possible. This healthy glucosamine supplement will support healthy joints and help ease your dog's pain so he can enjoy a full active life.

Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint supplements can help improve your dog's joint function – whether he is at risk for developing arthritis, mildly symptomatic or already suffering from this painful joint condition.

Choose the formula that's right for your dog based on the severity of his symptoms, or ask your veterinarian to recommend the correct dosage for your dog.
