Herbal treatments for natural relief of joint pain, muscle weakness and degenerative conditions in cats and dogs with arthritis.     


The canine and feline musculoskeletal system has many components including bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, tendons, and support organs that include the liver, kidneys, and adrenal glands. Age, injuries, infections and wear and tear can undermine your pet’s joints and connective tissue, causing stiff and aching joints, degenerative disease and trigger inflammatory responses throughout the body.

Arthritis is a progressive disease related to inflammation of the joint. Daily wear and tear and accumulated damage to the cartilage in the joint slowly destroys the thin layer of protective cartilage. In response, the body creates an inflammatory reaction which furthers leads to cartilage destructionBecause of its self-replicating destructive nature, arthritis requires a product that helps to repair and rebuild cartilage and connective tissuecontrols your pet’s inflammatory response and supports a healthy immune system.

Arthritis is an immune-mediated disease and may result from infection, trauma such as a ligament tear or rupture. Some large breed dogs and cats may be genetically predisposed, resulting in malformed limbs such as experienced by bull dogs and dachshunds.

Dogs and cats may have arthritis but present no signs of lameness or discomfort, but as they age, or in the case performance and working dogs, the presence of arthritis can be assumed. Pets with apparent arthritis will present symptoms of lameness, stiffness, discomfort, swollen joints, pain, creaking, clicking, limping, lethargy, inability to get up or climb stairs, difficulty getting up, may experience pain and whelp when jumping and may lose control of front or rear limbs.

A natural or organic food will contains joint supporting glucosamine, MSM, and likely a Probiotic to aid in digestion and nutrient assimilation.
