Many dog breeds, especially large ones, are susceptible to joint discomfort, especially as they age.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to identify and address joint discomfort in dogs because they often don’t show symptoms until the problem has become quite severe.
This is one of the reasons that, as your dog ages, it is important to visit your vet regularly.
There are also a few tips that vets recommend owners follow to support joint health and aged-related discomfort for dogs as they get older.
Diet is an important component in supporting your dog’s overall and joint health.
Keeping your dog’s weight within healthy parameters can ease the burden on a dog’s joints. Low sodium diets are also important because excess salt can cause water retention, which further stresses a dog’s joints. Your vet can help with the right diet and nutritional advice for your dog.
Many vets also acknowledge that supplements can play a part in supporting your dog’s health, as they have the benefits of being natural and don’t cause some of the side-effects and problems that some medications can produce.
Vetz Petz Antinol is a healthy supplement that has recently been released in the United States, and that has been scientifically and clinically proven by university-backed studies. It is proven to assist joint health, alleviate discomfort and skin support for dogs throughout their lives.
I recommend Antinol because the unique active ingredient, PCSO-524, has been scientifically researched and proven to work. It works fast, with studies showing that over 90% of dogs respond in 5 to 10 days.
Antinol, the only supplement for dogs containing PCSO-524, that may help healthy joint function and discomfort associated with normal daily exercise and activity, and support healthy skin with benefits for skin conditions associated with seasonal allergies.
Antinol is also 100 percent natural, which means that not only is PCSO-524 natural, but so too are other beneficial ingredients of olive oil and Vitamin E.
During university-conducted studies, researchers have found no negative side-effects associated with Antinol. It is safe for long-term use and in conjunction with other medicines.
I recommend Antinol as part of the daily care for all dogs, as it is proven to support joint and skin health and aged-related discomfort as dogs get older.
What’s more, you don’t have to wait until your dog shows the symptoms of discomfort before you try it. That makes for happy dogs and happy owners.
