Arthritis is a common problem as pets grow older. In the disease’s earliest stages, owners may notice nothing more than a little stiffness that a dog quickly works through or a cat that doesn’t want to jump up on the counters any more. As arthritis progresses however, the symptoms become more severe and debilitating. Limping, reluctance to exercise, loss of muscle mass, and a lack of self-grooming in cats can all be signs of more advanced arthritis.
Joint supplements play a major role in the treatment of arthritis, but because no two individuals are the same and because arthritis tends to get worse over time, no single joint supplement is right under all circumstances. This is why the product line offered by Joint Max is such a welcome addition to the array of joint supplements that are currently available.
Joint Max Regular Strength is available in both capsule and chewable tablet form. It contains moderate amounts of glucosamine, chondroitin and other ingredients that help cartilage heal and joints protect themselves from damage. Joint Max RS is an excellent choice for small dogs and cats or for larger dogs when used to help prevent or delay the development of arthritis.
Joint Max Double Strength is also available as both a capsule and chewable tablet. It is very similar to Joint Max Regular Strength except that it contains about twice the amount of glucosamine and chondroitin. This makes it an excellent choice for medium to large breed dogs with moderate arthritis. Lower doses of Joint Max DC can also be used as a preventative.
Joint Max Triple Strength is the “big gun” in this group. Not only does it offer very high levels of glucosamine but it also contains chondroitin, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), creatine, fatty acids, and other ingredients which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity and promote joint health. Joint Max Triple Strength is ideal for large dogs with advanced arthritis and is available as a soft chew, chewable tablet, granule, or even a hypoallergenic granule that contains no protein wheat, corn, or other commonly allergenic ingredients.
For owners who prefer products that can be easily mixed with their pet’s food, try Joint Max Triple Strength Granules for large dogs with severe arthritis or use Joint Max Liquid for Dogs or Joint Max Liquid for Cats in cases of moderate arthritis. Joint Max Joint treats are also a tasty option for dogs with mild arthritis or for use as a preventative. They are all natural, low calorie, and available as both a mini and standard-sized soft chews.
