What's It Good For?

Young Dogs
(From 3 months - 2 years)
Maintaining thickness of joint fluid
Supporting the Long-Term Joint Health
Proactive Care

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. Overall, it provides the building blocks for synovial fluid, cartilage, and connective tissues of the joint.

What's In It?

Glucosamine
Chondroitin
MSM
Hyaluronic Acid

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.

Glucosamine

A very well-known element in the joint supplement market, glucosamine helps to maintain thick and viscous joint fluid. Hydrolyzing enzymes enter the scene every day, breaking down joint fluid little by little. The thinner the joint fluid, the harder each movement is on the joints. Dog glucosamine chews counteract this process, helping to thicken the ever-thinning joint fluid.

Chondroitin

Chondroitin is often found alongside glucosamine in many joint supplements. It's an element of connective tissue found in cartilage and bones. Carnivores would often get their daily dose of chondroitin through the raw bones and ligaments of their prey, which would help strengthen their own bones and cartilage.

MSM

To help boost the body's natural process of forming connective tissue, among its many other benefits, veterinarians recommend MSM. It's also been shown to help accelerate the healing & recovery process and speeding up the rebuilding of new muscle and connective tissue. In addition, MSM can assist in decreasing inflammation around joints, providing some relief for swelling and stiffness for overall joint care for dogs.

Hyaluronic Acid

Often taken as a supplement to address stiffness and joint pain, hyaluronic acid is a component naturally found in the body. It can also contribute to proper joint lubrication as it is a foundational component of synovial fluid and cartilage.

The Point of a Joint

Joints serve two (very opposite) purposes: flexibility & rigidness. Like push puppets that collapse when you press their buttons but stiffen when released. As various joints move in concert, the body is able to move forward. To maintain that synergy, you need a joint supplement that provides more than just glucosamine.

Mechanics of Joint Damage

Though the joints seem very protected, they can actually degenerate very quickly if not properly cared for. Damage to cartilage can often take forever to heal because it doesn't get to take very many breaks. Take a proactive stance and give your dog glucosamine to provide ample joint support.

Is Your Dog Getting Enough Glucosamine?

It can be tricky to find the best glucosamine supplement! Many joint care supplements for dogs are deceiving. Right now, it's up to the informed pet owner to discern if a glucosamine supplement actually has helpful levels of glucosamine. Nobody regulates the gap between "some" and "enough".
