Senior Dog Care: How Glucosamine Supports Joint Health

Table of Contents
As our furry friends age, their joints can become stiff and creaky, making every step a struggle. But there's hope! Glucosamine, a natural compound found in joint fluid, has been shown to be a game-changer for senior dogs, supporting their mobility and comfort.
The Benefits of Glucosamine
Glucosamine supplements have been widely used to support joint health in humans and animals alike. In senior dogs, glucosamine has been shown to:
  • Reduce joint pain and inflammation
  • Improve mobility and flexibility
  • Support healthy joint fluid and cartilage
  • Slow down the progression of arthritis
How Glucosamine Works
Glucosamine works by stimulating the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are essential for healthy joint fluid and cartilage. As dogs age, their GAG production slows down, leading to joint stiffness and pain. Glucosamine supplements help to replenish GAGs, supporting healthy joints and mobility.
