Nearly 80% of dogs over the age of eight are affected by osteoarthritis, a multifactorial disease causing the joints to deteriorate. Including certain probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants in your dog’s diet has a significant role in helping prevent excess cartilage damage. We explain why.
Did you know dogs are living longer than ever? In fact,
a dog’s lifespan has increased by about 10% between 2002 and 2012. Many age-related issues dogs experience are associated with oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between antioxidants and oxidants in the body. In this article we explain how nutraceuticals for dogs containing antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins with immunomodulatory properties have been shown in many studies to benefit age-related health issues in senior dogs, particularly canine cognitive dysfunction, heart disease, and some forms of cancer.
