Help Your Senior Dog's Joints Become More Agile

Your grandmother or grandfather may be battling arthritis in their fingers or knees, but your dog can also suffer from the same ailment. A dog that appears to limp or walk stiffly, or even refuse to get up at times may have arthritis. As a trusted partner in pet care, TriCOX has created a comprehensive joint support supplement that is designed for a dog's body chemistry. Consider your dog's needs to see if this supplement is right for your best friend.

What Causes Joint Problems in Dogs?

As a dog ages, their body starts to wear down. Although you may provide excellent exercise and nutrition for your dog, their bodies do not harness the nutrients as well as they did in the past. Hardworking joints begin to deteriorate. Protective cartilage in the joint breaks down over time, forcing bone on bone joint grinding. The area becomes inflamed, causing pain and onset of osteoarthritis. The leg joints are the most common area to be affected because of the dog's weight and running habits.

Using Collagen as Main Support
TriCOX created their joint supplement on the basis of undentured collagen benefits. Also referred to as patented UC-II, collagen is a basic protein typically found in the dog's body. Connective tissue uses collagen as a strong, yet flexible, substance to bind bones and other body parts together. TriCOX's supplements offer valuable UC-II to the dog's body, effectively reducing inflammation at joints for osteoarthritis relief. In essence, the supplement calms the dog's immune system from overreacting to the joint's deterioration.

Results Can Be Startling
Along with reduced immune system inflammation at the joints, these soft chews provide critical antioxidants to encourage normal cartilage and muscle growth. Strong cartilage at the joint reduces osteoarthritis occurrences, making your dog run and walk normally without pain. Increased muscle growth also helps the joints by supporting them through stressful movements, from bending the legs to running down a hill. Your dog will feel and act years younger than normal with successful soft chew treatments.

Keep It Consistent

TriCOX recommends each dog consumes between one-half to three chews each day, based on pet weight. Regular supplements working inside the dog's body allows the joints to remain healthy and supported. Luckily, TriCOX makes the supplements palatable so you can hide them in the dog's food. However, you must also keep the dog on a healthy diet with plenty of exercise. Combining supplements, exercise and good food contributes to a healthy best friend.

Managing Your Pet’s Plaque & Oral Health with ProDen PlaqueOff

Proper oral hygiene has been a point of emphasis for both human dentists and veterinarians for years now. Not only does consistent oral care improve the look and smell of your pet’s mouth but will reduce the risk associated with more serious health issues later on in life. It’s estimated by veterinarians that 85% of dogs over the age of 5 are afflicted with periodontal disease, which advances over time as food particles and bacteria harden into tartar then inflaming the gums. If the tartar is not removed the bacteria will continue to thrive and your pet may be at risk of losing teeth, forming mouth abscesses or contracting a bacterial blood infection that may spread to a pet’s vital organs.

The best way to protect your pet from gum disease is routine oral hygiene maintenance with a pet toothbrush and pet toothpaste. Brushing your pet’s teeth once a day washes food particles and cleans bacteria from the mouth. It is recommended you begin teeth brushing when your dog or cat is younger so they become accustomed with the feeling. Investing time and staying on top of teeth brushing will save you hundreds of dollars and your pet the unnecessary stress that comes with a teeth scaling procedure.

If you are unable to commit to a daily teeth brushing schedule or your furry friend already has plaque and tartar buildup, ProDen PlaqueOff natural supplement for dogs and cats may be the answer. ProDen PlaqueOff Animal is formulated with specially selected seaweed to improve pet teeth and gums when added to wet or dry food. The natural granules are the only pet oral care product that works through the pet’s bloodstream to disrupt biofile, effectively reducing plaque levels and improving your dog or cat’s breath. This pet oral health product has no known side effects, contains no artificial colors, preservatives, gluten or sugar making it the perfect answer for pets with allergic reactions.

Improvement in your pet’s breath, teeth and gum appearance will not be seen immediately as the PlaqueOff supplement takes anywhere from 3-8 weeks to take effect. Remember that your pet’s oral health will not be drastically improved or worsened within a day or two; it takes routine brushing, regular visits to the vet and sometimes an extra supplement like ProDen PlaqueOff to manage pet gum and periodontal disease.
