Joint health for dogs

Had  a power outtage the other day then computer issues so have been behind in my blog posts this week.


Since I was told that Cici had a bit of arthritis, I have tried different supplements for her. When given the opportunity to try these Blue Label Glucosamine and Chondroitin treats, thought it would be a good idea. Cici LOVES the  soft chewable INhancer Hip & Joint Supplements.  She thinks that they are cookies and scarfs them up which is nice since they are supplements that are good for her.  Just use the nuggets as you would regular treats. No muss, no fuss, no disguising or having to put in a hot dog or a piece of cheese.

·  Vitamin A, an antioxidant, is a prime necessity for the immune system and overall pet health.

·  Vitamin B5  is necessary to produce coenzyme-A and helps dogs to metabolize proteins,carbohydrates and fats.
·  Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) helps produce antibodies and red blood cells.
·  Vitamin B12 is essential for proper functioning of the brain and nervous system.
·  Calcium helps build bones and aids normal blood clotting.
·  Phosphorous is critical for the growth and maintenance of the skeleton.
·  Choline is sourced from lecithin, and helps build cells and nerve tissue.
·  Folic Acid helps produce red blood cells, build antibodies, and helps the growth and division of cells.
·  Iron promotes the utilization of oxygen 
·  Manganese improves the utilization of the B-complex vitamins and vitamin E.
·  Omega Fatty Acids produce healthy cell membranes, contribute to healthy brain and nerve cell development, fortify the immune system and are specifically helpful with skin disorders.

IN supplements are never cooked. Through their unique cold process, ALC INovators has found a way to produce supplements that maintain the integrity of their ingredients while also taking the form of a soft nugget that dogs take as a treat.
