Here are some facts you may not have known about osteoarthritis:
Get informed now, integrate better.
Wear and tear put an important strain on joints. When cartilage begins to deteriorate due to strain or injury, pain occurs and can make dogs reluctant to move. At this point we see the first signs like
Osteoarthrosis or arthritis or osteoarthritis is a DEGENERATIVE DISEASE, that affects the JOINTS.
In veterinary medicine it is also known as Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD).
It is a PROGRESSIVE AND IRREVERSIBLE PATHOLOGY, characterized by degeneration of joint cartilages, changes in the subchondral bone, formation of osteophytes and inflammation and fibrosis of the joint capsule.
It is not possible to reverse joint disease, but it is possible to slow its progression.
There are several complementary foods formulated to support dog joint health.
A specific complementary feed can:
The diet must be balanced and must be suitable for the dog/cat, its life stage and its needs. It will change often throughout the pet’s life to provide the right nutrients and in the right quantities.
Suitable nutrition is also important for maintaining proper weight. Maintaining a correct weight throughout the pet’s life and preventing obesity phenomena that place excessive load on the joints is therefore very important.
Movement is life and life is movement. Exercise should be an essential component of the daily routine as it is extremely important for an animal’s health and well-being.
It is very important to personalize the exercise based on the needs of the animal, its age, breed…
Puppies need controlled movement, adult and more active dogs and cats may require more intense activities. While senior dogs/cats need moderate walks which help keep their joints flexible. An elderly animal may have pain when moving. Less exercise could cause weight gain, which increases stress on its joints. Gentle exercise keeps the joints limber and healthy and helps the animal to feel better.
Osteoarthritis almost always develops following an injury, even when the animal is still a puppy. Excessive exercise, jumping too high, and running too hard before your puppy’s bones and joints are mature can damage the joints, so monitor your young pet’s exercise routine.
In the case of a suspected injury it is essential to treat it as soon as possible to reduce or prevent joint problems as the animal ages.
Diagnostic investigations carried out by your trusted veterinarian can help identify the signs of osteoarthritis early.
It is an innovative dietary complementary feed* (special food intended for particular nutritional purposes, useful for supporting joint metabolism in case of osteoarthritis, enriched with fish oil and enhanced thanks to the presence within it of the exclusive Dogoteka blend called ProTriXan, a true booster (or wellness injection) for joints, tendons and ligaments.
* Dietary feeds are able to satisfy a particular nutritional purpose of animals, whose functions (in this case osteoarticular metabolism) risk being temporarily altered or are temporarily altered in an irreversible form. The animals benefit from taking this type of feed because it responds to the needs of their health.
All particular nutritional purposes and the provisions that regulate them regarding labeling and their nature are authorized by the European Commission through specific community acts (Dir. 2008/38/EC and subsequent amendments).
It is important to distinguish between a complementary feed and a dietary complementary feed/PARNUTS.
Dogoteka has created two complementary feeds for joint health that provide the necessary substances to meet your pet’s needs.
