Young Dog Viscosity is a glucosamine-based formula that aids in joint support by maintaining the normal viscosity of joint fluid. Young Dog Viscosity also contains hyaluronic acid and MSM to better address joint health in young dogs. Overall, it provides the building blocks for synovial fluid, cartilage, and connective tissues of the joint.
Glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid help to maintain synovial fluid that lubricates joints and may help to stimulate the production of proteoglycans which help maintain the health and resilience of joints and connective tissue.
A very well-known element in the joint supplement market, glucosamine helps to maintain thick and viscous joint fluid. Hydrolyzing enzymes enter the scene every day, breaking down joint fluid little by little. The thinner the joint fluid, the harder each movement is on the joints. Dog glucosamine chews counteract this process, helping to thicken the ever-thinning joint fluid.
Chondroitin is often found alongside glucosamine in many joint supplements. It's an element of connective tissue found in cartilage and bones. Carnivores would often get their daily dose of chondroitin through the raw bones and ligaments of their prey, which would help strengthen their own bones and cartilage.
To help boost the body's natural process of forming connective tissue, among its many other benefits, veterinarians recommend MSM. It's also been shown to help accelerate the healing & recovery process and speeding up the rebuilding of new muscle and connective tissue. In addition, MSM can assist in decreasing inflammation around joints, providing some relief for swelling and stiffness for overall joint care for dogs.
Often taken as a supplement to address stiffness and joint pain, hyaluronic acid is a component naturally found in the body. It can also contribute to proper joint lubrication as it is a foundational component of synovial fluid and cartilage.
