For most dogs, yes. Glucosamine can be one of the best joint supplements for dogs. Cartilage is an essential part of any joint in your dog’s body—it acts as a cushion, allowing your dog to move freely and without pain. Just like humans, when dogs age, cartilage can break down from continued wear and tear.

Glucosamine Hydrochloride can help encourage cartilage growth and help maintain existing cartilage. This helps to avoid painful rubbing of bone-on-bone, along with arthritis, hip dysplasia and inflammation.

Yes, in most cases. It’s important to read the labels of the joint supplements closely and make sure you pick a product that fits your dog’s needs. There are many different formulas—size-specific, age-specific, severity of condition—so make sure you choose carefully. Many joint support products are intended for dogs at least 1 year of age. It’s best to consult your veterinarian before starting your pet on any new regimen.
