What are the best hip and joint chews for dogs?
Any pet owner in the market for supplements is going to want to find the best hip and joint supplement available for their dog. If you're taking the extra step of seeking out a way to supplement your pet's diet, then you're not going to want to settle for anything less than the best option.
Given that we sell hip and joint supplements, we're going to avoid weighing in on what brand is the best since we'll have an obvious bias. That said, we can speak to the ingredients and process that you should look for when buying a joint supplement for your dog.
The best ingredients
Glucosamine - This is the best and most important ingredient that you want included in any supplement you give your dog to support hip and joint health. Glucosamine is the most popular ingredient that is found in many joint supplements. Glucosamine is said to help support healthy cartilage. Since glucosamine levels diminish as humans and dogs age, this is a very important supplement for both.
Chondroitin - This is likely the 2nd most popular supplement used in dog joint health chews. Chondroitin sulfate is a sulfated glycosaminoglycan made up of a chain of alternating sugars. Often paired with glucosamine, Chondroitin is said to promote healthy joint function as well.
Hemp - A new ingredient that has been included within dog join supplements, hemp is said to promote comfortable joints. Helping the joints to feel better and allow your dog to have better days.
While these 3 are likely the most important ingredients, the full list of ingredients goes on, Aside from what should be included, it's also important to consider the best process and formula when buying joint chews.
The best process for joint supplements
Aside from picking the right ingredients, you want to make sure you're selecting a brand that's using the correct type of those ingredients and following the best process.
It's best if the hip and joint chews are made from as many natural ingredients as possible. Lower priced soft chews are at a higher risk of including genetically modified ingredients and unnecessary fillers. While the low price tag may be intriguing, you typically get what you pay for.
