Our top 3 supplements for senior dogs October 8, 2021 – Posted in: dogs, supplements

Most dogs begin to show signs of aging around 8 years old. However, this doesn’t mean that your dog can’t continue living a happy & healthy life. As dogs age, their needs change; therefore, our methods of caring for them must also change.

One of the most important things we can do for senior dogs is to provide dietary supplements. You may not realize that many dry dog foods are subjected to high temperatures. Heating and processing the kibble depletes many of the nutrients in the food.

Supplements for Senior Dogs:

  • Glucosamine & Chondroitin
    • Both glucosamine and chondroitin protect joint cartilage. Essential for dogs suffering from arthritis.
  • Omega-3s
    • Omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect. They can improve cognition and reduce joint pain.
  • Probiotics
    • Support digestion and boost the immune system.
