Joint Pain & Arthritis in Dogs and Cats
As our canine and feline friends age, they can experience the same discomforts that we as humans suffer in our senior years. There’s no sure fire cure for osteoarthritis. Most often our pets (like us) are prescribed life-long medication to reduce the inflammation and lessen the discomfort, but this can lead to problems in other parts of the body.
Dogs and Humans – more alike than you know…
It has been estimated that more than half of all dogs over eight years will develop discomfort in one or more joints. Most often it is in the hips, knees and elbows and can make movement of any sort very uncomfortable. NZ Pure Pets Green Lipped Mussel powder is made from a natural food source and may be the answer. And best of all, unless your pet is allergic to shellfish, there are no negative side effects.
It’s a sad reality that dogs, cats and other mammals can develop osteoarthritis just like humans, but loving your pet doesn’t have to mean spending lots of money on expensive drugs.
We all know how expensive prescription medicine can be, but when the side effects make your pet sick, it can be heart breaking! The fact is that the use of anti-inflammatory drugs may have adverse and distressing side effects including irritation, anorexia, vomiting and even ulcers in some animals.
NZ Pure Pets Green Lipped Mussel powder is a completely natural supplement that can reduce the pain and inflammation in joints of your beloved pet, while providing the nutrients necessary for healing and repair.
