Young Dog Viscosity is a glucosamine-based formula that aids in joint support by maintaining the normal viscosity of joint fluid. Young Dog Viscosity also contains hyaluronic acid and MSM to better address joint health in young dogs.

Glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid help to maintain synovial fluid that lubricates joints and may help to stimulate the production of proteoglycans which help maintain the health and resilience of joints and connective tissue. Young Dog Viscosity provides the building blocks for synovial fluid, cartilage, and connective tissues of the joint.

MSM helps to maintain and support a healthy, normal inflammatory response and may help to reduce inflammation associated with normal daily exercise and activity, training, and competition.

Use Young Dog Viscosity with Herbsmith Comfort Aches in times of additional musculoskeletal stress. For dogs that need more advanced joint support of for dogs over three to five years of age, we recommend using Sound Dog Viscosity.
