Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets

Healthy animals produce enough glucosamine themselves to keep their cartilage healthy, however in older animals where wear and tear is starting or following injury or damage they do require a little bit more to keep their joints healthy. Chondroitin has a number of functions but ultimately works synergistically with the glucosamine.

Many pet foods claim to include Glucosamine & Chondroitin but, as these are expensive ingredients, this inclusion could simply be the outcome of a marketing descision rather than actually providing a therapeutic dose. You should check the actual amount included.

Ingredients (Per Tablet): Glucosamine 400mg, Chondroitin Sulphate (Marine source) 200mg

A very interesting set of calculations have been carried out based on prices at 3rd March 2011 for a labrador with knee displasia:
Using Royal Canin Mobility Support + Omnicondro would cost approximately 90€ per month
Using Burns High Oats + Dorwest Glucosamine & Chondroitin would cost approximatley 50€ per month

Milk Thistle
A dietary supplement, to be used at times when the liver needs extra support. Milk Thistle fruit contains the well documented active ingredient Silymarin, which has hepatoprotective properties. It supports the liver in several ways, most importantly by scavenging free radicals that are associated with cell damage and transforming them into less harmful compounds. Milk Thistle is more beneficial when not directly combined with other herbs, and this product stays true to the core principles of herbalism by using Milk Thistle fruit in its entirety, this ensures that as well as gaining the benefits from Silymarin it also retains the ‘balancing’ effects of the other constituents. The extract in this tablet is the highest quality available which places it in the forefront of natural hepatoprotective products. Pot of 100 Tablets
