Pets Own Vita-Bics with Glucosamine are unlike any other dog biscuit – in fact they are more than just a biscuit. It is not uncommon for dogs to suffer hip and joint pain associated with osteoarthritis as they get older (and dogs with advanced nutrition are living longer than ever before). Certain breeds may even be prone to these conditions earlier on in life as well. Glucosamine has long been used as an aid for these conditions, so we have added effective levels of glucosamine to help fight the causes of these painful conditions and ultimately to help provide relief from the effects of them. Glucosamine is not an anti- inflammatory, but rather it is thought to help with the restoration of cartilage and rebuilding of joints. So the benefits may not be seen instantly but will hopefully begin within 3 to 4 weeks and ongoing with continued use.
Each biscuit contains 130mg of glucosamine sulphate, which is considered sufficient to achieve the desired results. We suggest you give your dog the number of biscuits appropriate for its size as per the table below. Leading edge nutrition in recent years has established certain needs in a dog’s diet that contributes to a healthier, more active and longer life. These nutrient needs are not quick fixes, but should be part of the diet long term to achieve full benefits. One or a few biscuits a day as a snack, treat or training device ensures that your dog is obtaining what it needs for life. Each biscuit contains: Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids which are required in the diet of dogs. These are responsible for healthy skin and coat, minor wound healing, heart and circulation, healthy retina, and liver health.
Tocopherol which is a powerful antioxidant and in combination with selenium present in the garlic it is a potent immune system stimulator. Antioxidants are also important in reducing the ageing process by removing free radicals that are responsible for damaging cell membranes, cell DNA and other cellular components.
Methionine which is an essential amino acid required in the diet that helps the liver process fats and provides sulphur and other compounds required for normal metabolism.
Vitamins and Minerals: A blend of essential vitamins and minerals that may be lacking in the diet or simply required as a backup for maintaining good health and vitality.
Vitabics with glucosamine makes no claim to be a cure. The active ingredient – glucosamine that we add is commonly used for helping relieve the symptoms of osteo-arthritis and joint pain and this is the purpose of these biscuits.
