Collagen is a protein that is found abundantly in the body. It’s also a common ingredient found in pet supplements. Collagen can help support mobility and skin and coat. PetHonesty has several supplements that contain collagen.
Utilizing collagen may help a dog’s joint health because collagen makes up part of muscles, tendons, ligaments etc. It can promote cartilage development and joint health. Collagen is also a protein in pet’s skin so it may be used to promote a healthy skin and coat.
The PetHonesty supplements that contain collagen are PureMobility and Hemp Allergy SkinHealth just to name a couple. The PureMobility chews contain Balanced Kollagen which is a patented form of collagen from eggshells that promotes cartilage development and joint health. The Hemp Allergy SkinHealth chews contain collagen types I and III which supports connective tissues and bones for optimum skin health. Ask your veterinarian if PetHonesty supplements are right for your pet.
