Product Content Tab 2 - Joints - Hidden Changes
Age related degenerative joint changes typically begin in many dogs from 6 years of age onwards (often earlier in medium and large breeds).
- loss of elasticity of the articular cartilage (which over time can become brittle and develop fissures / splits)
- thinning of lubricating joint fluid (which becomes more like water than engine oil)
- stiffening of supporting ligaments
- weakening of surrounding muscles and bones
Although in the early stages these deteriorations in joint structures can’t be seen, they will inevitably impact mobility, activity and quality of life over time.
Fortunately, early supplementation with Joints helps the body to maintain mobile and flexible joints, far better than it would be able to without.
And this is highly beneficial for any dog approaching middle age.
