Glucosamine & Chondroitin for Hip & joint care
Hip & Joint Care for Dogs
Many dogs develop some form of joint disease during their lifetime. There is a wide range of symptoms from mild to severe debilitation that can greatly affect the dog’s quality of life. The signs of joint disease are limping, stiffness, restless sleeping and reluctance to jump.
Veterinarians in the United States have been prescribing Glucosamine and Chondroitin to their pet patients for several years and are pleased with the results.
Glucosamine is the major sugar found in glycosaminoglycans and hyaluronate, which are important building blocks in the synthesis and maintenance of cartilage in the joint. Glucosamine is a 2-amino derivative of glucose which is obtained through the hydrolysis of chitin, a polysaccharide found in the shell of crustaceans.
Chondroitin enhances the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and inhibits damaging enzymes in the joint. Chondroitin is a naturally occurring product found in animal cartilage. Supplemental chondroitin is derived primarily from bovine (cow) cartilage, particularly the cartilage rings of the trachea.
Glucosamine and chondroitin have become widely used in treating both animals osteoarthritis. Due to the success in treating pet patients with osteoarthritis, Glucosamine and Chondroitin have come to the vanguard of therapy and are becoming the most popular products for managing arthritis.

Skin & Coat Care
Omega fish oils for a healthy skin & shiny coat
Veterinarians have discovered that fatty acids in a dog’s diet are important in promoting a healthy skin and coat. More recently, Vets have seen improvements in allergies, joint health, inflammation control, cardiovascular health and the function of body organs. Most of your dog’s essential fatty acids are obtained through their diet as they cannot produce all of the fatty acids they need.
Goodness Gravy is infused with Omega-3 that helps with important body functions in your dog. Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) marine fish oil that helps with atopy, arthritis, autoimmune disease, retinoid therapy, seborrhea, decrease cholesterol. Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic (DHA) is also a marine fish oil that helps with atopy, retinoid therapy. Omega-6 helps with dry skin, dull hair coat and seborrhea. We included Vitamin E that assists the efficacy of Omega-3 and Omega-6 to promote a healthy shiny coat.
Fatty acid supplements affect several of your dog’s systems and conditions. Fatty acids can help:
• Allergies and autoimmune conditions – when the immune system over-reacts, your dog can develop an allergies or autoimmune conditions. Fatty acids can reduce the harmful effect of these diseases with your dog
• Arthritis – Omega-3 fatty acids may be helpful in reducing arthritic inflammation. Other related inflammation diseases including colitis, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis may respond to fatty acids.
• Skin and Coat – Dull, dry and weak coats can respond to essential fatty acid supplements.
• Yeast Infections – it has been shown that the growth of some common yeast infections in dogs has been slowed with the introduction of fatty acids.
• Preventing atopy – atopy is an allergy to inhaled substances that include pollens and mold. Some research has shown that fatty acid supplements can act to prevent atopy in developing dogs.
• Cardiovascular Support – Some evidence suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may prevent certain cardiovascular problems as well in dogs.
• Eyes – omega-3 fatty acids are vital for the development of the retina and visual cortex.

Have a Picky Eater or Non-drinker?
We’ve been told that the number one reason a dog owner is called by a kennel is lack of eating and/or drinking. For some dogs, the kennel can be a very stressful transition from the comforts of home.

Don’t forget to include enough Goodness Gravy servings to spread over meals to keep food delicious. The easy to serve individual packets will make it simple for kennel staff to manage.
According to the ASPCA a dog needs at least one ounce of water for each pound of body weight per day. Make sure your dog always has a clean bowl of water. When you travel or exercise, don’t forget to bring plenty of water to maintain hydration. Adding a flavor to water is an excellent way to encourage hydration. If you don’t think your dog is getting enough water, then try adding some Goodness Gravy to the water. The delicious flavor might be the solution.
