Are you looking for a natural and holistic way to increase flexibility and
decrease inflammation from arthritis in your dog? Are you aware that natural or
holistic glucosamine supplements for arthritis in dogs have side effects? Would
you like a natural or holistic dog treat for arthritis that does not have wheat,
corn or soy products in them and won't make your dog fat? Try Active Care
Healthy Joint Treats which contain a natural source of glucosamine and
chondroitin sulfate made by Breeder's Choice especially for older dogs with
These treats from Breeder's Choice are very similar to Chondro Chips.
Breeder's Choice is the patent holder on these.
This is a whole food product supplying the chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine
HCl in the form nature intended for our companion animals. Contains NO
carbohydrates (starch fillers), binders, propylene glycol, preservatives or
synthetic ingredients. All-natural treat with no man-made ingredients. Dogs love
the taste of these chewy treats. For older pets with arthritis or hip dysplasia
and for younger pets to help prevent it.
What makes the ACTIVE CARE chews different is natural bovine cartilage and
their patented method of obtaining it. Many pet food companies have taken an
easy leap onto the healthy joint bandwagon by adding varying amounts of
synthetic forms of chondroitin and glucosamine then claiming to promote good
joint health. Natural bovine cartilage provides the all-important GAGs (glycosaminoglycans)
in an all natural stable form so there are no chemical side effects. With
natural bovine cartilage, ACTIVE CARE was specifically created to maintain good
Customer Testimonials for Chondro Chips (same ingredients as Healthy Joint
My dog jumped on the bed after starting on your Chondro Chips. He hasnít
done that in a long while.
Our dogís rear leg limp became less frequent. I put your Chondro Chips on
autoship so I will always have a regular supply.
My elderly German Shepherd acts like a puppy when offered your Chondro
Chips. He sits up, begs and offers his paw just to get your treat.
All ACTIVE CARE products are made with natural cartilage because they provide
complete joint nutrition with substantially more total GAGs and other nutrients
healthy joints need. Natural bovine cartilage provides significantly higher
quantities of all the GAGs including glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and
hyaluronic acid to supply the cartilage cells with the building blocks they need
to help re-build joints.
In their natural unprocessed form, these nutrients are easy for your dogís
system to recognize and absorb. And because they come in chews, biscuits and
food you can easily make good joint health part of your dogís daily routine.
These are all quality treats and foods, low in fat and sodium, that your dog
will love everyday. No pills, no powders, no forgetting. With ACTIVE CARE
healthy joints are a natural.
Dogs of all ages can benefit from these treats. Studies show that glucosamine
supplementation can be even more effective in younger dogs than older. Good
joint nutrition can delay the onset of joint problems for years. For dogs
already experiencing joint problems, Active Care treats can help your dog move
more comfortably, with greater ease and less pain. Some people see results in
just a few weeks.
Taking some supplements is like putting your finger
in the dike to stop the water leak. Yes, the symptoms (water leak) go away but have you
holistically healed the body? By taking isolated supplements what other
imbalances have developed? Did you know?
Glucosamine may impair insulin secretion through competitive inhibition
of glucokinase in pancreatic beta cells and/or alteration of peripheral
glucose uptake. Patients with diabetes should be cautious since glucosamine
may affect insulin sensitivity or glucose tolerance.
(Physicians Desk Reference for Non-Prescription Drugs & Supplements, 2005)
Glucosamine (derivative of glucose) made within your cells typically is
hidden from the areas where yeast and fungi grow. Orally ingested
glucosamine passes through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream
where yeast live then feed on the glucosamine. Thus, glucosamine provides
yeast with a source of energy as well as an important building block for
overgrowth and a flare-up of Candida symptoms.
1 month's supply* for under $20.00 compared to synthetic pills.
* Based upon 40-45 lb. dog.
Best if fed twice per day. These treats are made with natural bovine
cartilage and should be fed liberally with confidence. If your dog weighs 40
pounds, feed 1 chew in the morning and 1 chew in the evening. For smaller dogs
you can moisten each chew in warm water to soften (takes about 5 minutes) and
either mix in with regular food or feed it as a moist treat. Remember: 1 pound a
month feeds an average 40 lb. dog.
*The above analysis for Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine is the guaranteed
minimum/chew. A factory representative told us the actual average measured
values were 4 times (4X) that printed on the label. Remember to think
holistically. It is not the maximum amount (allopathically speaking) of
Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine that makes a better joint treat. It is the
bio-availability and synergistic combination of all of Nature's ingredients
(e.g., GAGs, enzymes, amino acids, trace minerals) that make Active Care Healthy
Joint Treats superior. We feel whole food treats are far better than isolated
liquid supplements or synthetic pills without the long-term side effects. Your
pet will feel the difference.
Holistically, the body needs more than just Chondroitin Sulfate and
Glucosamine to relieve arthritic conditions. In addition to these GAGs, research
has also shown the following nutrients to be beneficial in helping arthritis,
osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis: beta carotene (Vitamin A), Vitamin B1,
B3, B6, B12, C, E, pantothenic acid, zinc, boron, manganese, selenium, copper,
Bromelain, papain, trypsin, chymotrypsin, protease (all enzymes), DLPA & SAM
(amino acids), MSM, and Omega 3 fatty acid.
Testimonial from owner who tried whole food nutrition for arthritis: Our dog
was supposed to have $2,000 worth of surgery for hind legs/arthritis and so far
has been doing better, more demonstration of flexibility, etc. No surgery plans.
Where can one get an animal product with over 4,000 enzymes, the entire
B-complex of vitamins, Vitamin A, C, E and K, essential fatty acids of Omega 3,
6, and 9, all essential minerals and over 92 trace elements, over 20 amino acids
and powerful antioxidants all in one whole food product to help with arthritis,
osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis? Click here to find out:
