N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine for dogs and cats
N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine for dogs and cats is a key ingredient for urinary tract health.
N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine offers structural support to the bladder lining acting as a natural barrier to protect the underlying urinary tract layers.
It is an amide derivative of the monosaccharide glucose. It is a secondary amide between glucosamine and acetic acid. N-Acetyl D-glucosamine is a chemical that comes from the outer shells of shellfish, but it can also be made in a lab. It’s not to be confused with other forms of glucosamine such as glucosamine hydrochloride or glucosamine sulphate as they may not have the same benefits to your pet.

N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine for urinary tract health in cats and dogs
Urinary tract health in dogs and cats is a common reason for pet owners to visit the vets, but its cause if often unclear. However, changes in their routine or environment can lead to stress which is recognised as a common cause. Many vets now use a more holistic approach to aiding urinary tract health by incorporating the use of dietary, behavioural and nutraceutical products.
A large proportion of the bladder’s protective layer is made up of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These GAGs prevent the bladder walls from the irritating effects of urine and nutritional supplementation. With N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine strengthens this GAG layer and reduces discomfort. The addition of the unique phyto-extract, Quercetin, is designed to support the cat’s natural systems that control inflammation.
