WITH SHORT LEG LONG-BODIED BREEDS, SHOULD WE GIVE THE SENIOR HEALTH SUPPLEMENT TO PREVENT JOINT DETERIORATION

June 10, 2014

With short leg/long-bodied breeds, should we give the Senior Health supplement to prevent joint
deterioration? My dog is 3 years old now.

Hi Adan:

Thank you for the interesting question. I would think such a dog would have extra pressure on his back and spine, and could use the Healthy Joint supplement. Glucosamine does provide extra joint fluid for lubrication. Yes, I would feed the Glucosamine plus formulation. Hope your dog enjoys the supplement.
