At it’s very foundation, a joint consists of 2 bone endings, a joint capsule, and thick, viscous joint fluid. The joint capsule is a membrane which keeps the joint fluid in place around the bone ending. Keep in mind that healthy joint fluid is like a thick syrup and is made up of components such as chondroitin and hyaluronic acid. If the synovial tissue of the joint capsule becomes inflamed, released degrading enzymes that break down the thickness of the joint fluid.
Directly protecting the bone endings is cartilage – a smooth, porcelain-like surface that contains nerve endings and allows uninhibited motion. When the cartilage breaks down and the surface becomes rough, joint movement can create a firing of nerve endings and your dog will experience pain.
When mechanical force continues to come into contact with a weakened joint, that normally thick joint fluid things, leaving the cartilage less protected. This causes the cartilage to break down more quickly, and, in worse cases, fracture.

"Our English Bulldog, Baby Howard is 7 years young. Lots of people say that Bulldogs have a shorter lifespan of usually only 10 years. They also come with multiple health issues... joints, pulmonary, digestive, allergy, eye, etc....and we were on a mission to change that.
We started him on a raw diet from a puppy. We began researching supplements to compliment his healthy diet and were thrilled to find the Herbsmith line.Baby Howard tore his ACL when he was 2 years old and required surgery. We added a joint supplement but never felt it was doing much for him. Since switching to Sound Dog Viscosity, he has become like a big Puppy Boy again. We are so grateful to have found something that makes a huge difference for him!"
