There are many factors that can cause joint pain in dogs including excessive inflammation and oxidative stress, degradative enzymes, overuse and injury. A very common implication is the normal wear and degeneration of a dog’s ligaments as he ages, leading to arthritis and the excessive inflammation and discomfort associated with this common condition.
Proactive care through proper diet and supplementation is key to joint health and longevity. Platinum Performance® Canine CJ provides joint-specific nutrients that are well-researched and have been shown to decrease inflammation, such as omega-3 fatty acids, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and cetyl myristoleate. Antioxidants, like vitamins C and E, can neutralize free radicals, preventing oxidative distress and providing support for compromised joints. Additionally, botanical extracts such as berberine HCl, available in Platinum Comfort, may help naturally ease aches and reduce inflammation associated with exercise and activity.
