IS GLUCOSAMINE USED FOR PREVENTION OR TREATMENT?
Both! This food additive can be used to treat existing joint issues like stiffness, immobility, arthritis, and hip dysplasia. It’s also useful for puppies and dog breeds that commonly experience hip and joint problems—including labs, golden retrievers, german shepherds, and other large breeds.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIQUID GLUCOSAMINE AND HIP & JOINT SUPPLEMENTS?
There are two main differences:
Liquid glucosamine has a higher concentration of Glucosamine HCL, making it a stronger, more potent formula than Hip & Joint chews
Some dog parents find that administering a liquid supplement on top of their pup's food is easier than feeding them a chew
WHEN DO YOU RECOMMEND GLUCOSAMINE OVER HIP & JOINT?
Liquid Glucosamine is ideal for dogs with severe and/or chronic joint issues because its formula is slightly stronger than that of our Hip & Joint chews. Liquid Glucosamine is also great for dogs who have trouble with pills and/or chews.
DOES THIS HAVE A FLAVOR?
Our glucosamine formula is not flavored, but it does contain Stevia, which is a safe and sweet way to entice pups.
CAN THIS PRODUCT BE USED WITH OTHER NATURAL DOG COMPANY SUPPLEMENTS AND FOOD ADDITIVES?
Glucosamine can be given concurrently with any of our other supplements, with the exception of Hip & Joint chews.
The ingredients in Liquid Glucosamine are naturally produced by all dogs, but production decreases as dogs age— hence the need to add these important supplements back into Scout's diet.
