Many Dog owners suddenly and usually without warning notice visible abnormalities in their animals’ gait or posture, which in most cases are clear signs of joint wear and tear, which can lead to osteoarthritis. But it can also be due to spondylosis, a patellar luxation or hip dysplasia. What they all have in common is that if left untreated, osteoarthritis usually follows. The affected dogs find it difficult to get up tomorrow, often no longer want to go for a walk and strictly refuse to enjoy the sporting activities at the dog park. Climbing stairs and jumping into the car are noticeably more difficult, or are even refused. In such cases, you should act and treat quickly.
How does joint pain in dogs actually occur?
In order to actively treat joint pain in dogs, you first need to know what actually causes these problems. In most cases, the pain in the dog’s joints is due to so-called cartilage wear, in which the dogs’ joint cartilage initially recedes unnoticed. In an advanced stage of such cartilage regression, sooner or later the cartilage can no longer carry out its important task of buffering and smooth mobility of the joints. The cartilage is generally responsible for protecting dogs’ joints from damage caused by the friction, shock and shock that in turn results from the animals’ movements. From a certain degree of cartilage regression, through which the cartilage mass continues to decrease, the dog’s joints are almost completely defenseless against these stresses, bones rub on bones, periosteum and nerves are also damaged. This causes joint pain and, in the worst case, chronic joint diseases such as osteoarthritis.
Other causes of joint wear
Various factors can be considered as further triggers for cartilage loss in dogs. The natural aging process, an unbalanced diet (feeding industrially produced food for years – unfortunately 90% of all food is this) and also genetic deficiencies caused by overbreeding can be seen as other very common triggers for joint wear. But no matter which factor is ultimately responsible, a very good result can be achieved for all dogs by optimally supplying the dog’s joints and vertebral bodies with so-called joint nutrients. But the administration is also recommended as a preventive measure in order to avoid worse things as you get older.
The important joint nutrients
Natural joint nutrients, such as glucosamine, have the property of increasing the flow properties of the synovial fluid (Sovila fluid). Furthermore, glucosamine can inhibit the enzymes and cytokines responsible for cartilage breakdown. It supports the balance between cartilage formation and breakdown and thus inhibits wear and tear of the cartilage tissue. Glucosamine sulfate also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Collagen is a so-called structural protein that gives the connective tissue, fascia, ligaments and tendons stability as well as the articular cartilage and the vertebral soft tissues their pressure resistance. Collagen is essential for cartilage development and regeneration and supports stabilization of the joints.
The MSM (methylsulfonylmethane – sulfur compound) is an all-rounder. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain inhibitor and also supports the formation of synovial fluid. It also has antioxidant, immunomodulatory and antitumor properties. It is able to intercept free radicals in the joint and promote blood circulation in the joint.
