All Natural Dog Vitamins : Supplements for Dogs: Glucosamine for Dogs – VitaLife Show Episode 147


Welcome to the VitaLife show. I’m doctor Janine Bowring and today I’ll be talking all about glucosamine for your dog so usually I talk about human health today I’m talking about dogs because I
think it’s really important that people realize that a lot of the supplements
out there for pets contain a lot of the fillers and the
flow agents and the things that they put in human supplements that we of course
here at VitaTree we don’t agree with but now of course there in the dog
supplements as well which if it’s not good for humans it also of
course not good for your pets and for your dog so it’s a you know a bit of a learning
curve for a lot of people to really start paying attention to what they’re
giving their pets so be sure you stay tuned to the end of the video and
make sure that you subscribed as well because we’re always uploading new an informative information all about how to get healthy from the
inside out using natural remedies things that are really easy you know tips and tricks of the trade
too help to be your healthiest you for both your family and your pets as well so in terms of dog
food and looking at dog supplements as well
glucosamine is one of those things that’s great for joint health for dogs and unfortunately if you look at the
supplements for dogs they have a lot of these fillers so things like cellulose microcrystalline
cellulose magnesium stearate which is a flow agent and it’s not one of the
things that I recommend because it actually what it does is speeds up the manufacturing process so it
becomes much more affordable for the company’s to use magnesium stearate in their formulas however magnesium stearate can cause a
lot of gastric distress a lot of stomach issues for your pets but also decreases the absorption of
whatever it’s mixed with so I mean go figure is that really good
thing of course not so here at VitaTree with our supplements
we don’t use any magnesium stearate and were probably one of the only companies
out there doesn’t use magnesium stearate so that’s
really you know something that you have to be you know informed about and really check
your labels on your supplements whether its for yourself or for your pets so in terms of dog health what we do for
joints we actually use our VitaJoints which is made for humans but you can certainly gives to your
pet to your dog and especially in a larger breeds they tend
to have a lot of hip problems as their aging and the VitaJoints
is absolutely remarkable so depending on
the size of your dog if you have questions you know as to how much to
give your dog of the VitaJoints please leave your questions and your
comments below and we do get back to everyone and we
can help to guide you on that but absolutely remarkable and what it can do
for keeping your dog young and youthful and able to be more
