Meet Frasier! Frasier is an eight year old German Shorthaired Pointer, a dual Canadian and American conformation champion, and a runner by trade. Two years ago, Frasier was overcome by joint disease. He was immobile and in significant pain. With the assistance of our friends at the University of Guelph Veterinary College, Frasier was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Arthritis. His issues stem from a serious injury he sustained as a puppy during an encounter with a deer in the bush. Frasier’s spinal column is inflamed and, without management, leads to swelling that impinges his nerves and makes for a level of pain that would break your heart. Thankfully, we have been able to get Frasier back on his feet and are happy to share a little of what has helped him in his recovery.
Green lipped mussels are a superfood! When GLM are harvested at their peak, the powdered extract contains high concentrations of omega-3’s, and a powerful combination of additional fatty acids that, working together with naturally occurring glucosamine and chondroitin, provide a level of joint and cartilage support. Reduction in inflammation and swelling and the natural rebuilding of joint components leads to less pain and increased mobility in pets suffering from degenerative joint disease. It works!
BioJoint provides an additional source of both glucosamine and chondroitin, as well as a series of ingredients that promote the absorption of nutrients to assist in building a natural anti-inflammatory response in the body. When inflammation is reduced, your pet’s body can begin to rebuild healthy cartilage and connective tissue.
Combined with good fats like high quality fish oil, these two products have delivered for Frasier! With meaningful rest between activities, Frasier still runs like a boss and is a joy to watch in the field. We would love to hear about your joint support regimen. Let’s keep our pets active and living the lifestyle they love.
