Long term use of Vetalogica Joint Formula with Glucosamine and Chondroitin may help improve joint health and function in dogs.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS: * Vetalogica's world exclusive GLUCOSAMEND™ technology combining natural ingredients into a tasty powder for pets. * Specially formulated glucosamine and chondroitin in correct ratios for dogs. * Manufactured under GMP standards. * Great tasting powder for dogs. HOW IT WORKS: Perfect dosing everytime! Underdosing and overdosing with human glucosamine products is potentially very dangerous and it is important to dose exact amounts to avoid serious side effects including worsening of asthma symptoms in pets and gastrointestinal disturbances. Randomised double blind trials in 85 dogs over a 6 week period indicated smaller and medium breeds showed a greater reduction in arthritic symptoms than large and giant breeds (57%, 39%) vs (33%, 32%). (Elliott et al 2007). It is essential that a loading dose of at least 88mg/kg of chondroitin and glucosamine combined followed by a reduction in dose after an improvement is seen (4-6 weeks) was found to be ideal in pets (Davidson, 2000). DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Not recommended for use in acute or infectious joint conditions. For a diagnosis to determine these conditions, or in the event of adverse experience (eg diarrhoea) or where response is unsatisfactory, consult your veterinarian. Use with caution in pregnant or lactating animals as safe use in these groups has not been established. Use with caution in animals with bleeding, liver or kidney disorders.
