As a pet owner you will understand the normal behaviour patterns exhibited by your pet and looking out for signs where your pet needs further support for its natural health.
Maintaining optimum joint health is important for a pet's quality of life, thus supporting your pet with a vet recommended joint supplement such as nutraquin will help to aid and soothe stiff joints, promote flexibility and support your pet's joint structure.
Supplementation is also of benefit because as animals get older, the everyday pressures and stresses on joints can increase. For example the production of glucosamine slows down, which is an essential building block of many parts of an animal's joints, including ligaments, tendons, cartilage and synovial fluid. It helps cartilage to act as a shock absorber thus aiding joints.
What to look for in your pet and when joint support might be useful:
- Stiffness - especially after a period of rest following exercise.
- Slow performing certain tasks (such as jumping into the car or onto a chair).
- Cats not grooming themselves or eating.
- Personality changes.
Talk to your vet if you are concerned about your pet's joint health. Your vet can carry out a thorough clinical examination to assess your pet and decide on an appropriate product and support programme.
