Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Pain Inflammation Hip & Joint Care soft chews contain Glucosamine Hydrochloride (Glucosamine HCl)
which is often used to alleviate pain and joint wear caused by hip dysplasia or other structural changes and can aid in the treatment of spinal disc injury. Glucosamine is a natural cartilage building block that, as dogs age, is depleted by the body much faster than it can be produced. Canine joint supplements containing glucosamine help replenish these depleting levels to provide relief from arthritis aches and pains. Glucosamine and chondroitin are commonly recommended by veterinarians as an alternative for treating osteoarthritis in canines
unable to tolerate the adverse effects of NSAIDs, or as add-on therapy. Glucosamine Hydrochloride is a building block of the cartilage matrix and stimulates growth of cartilage cells. Glucosamine can be given safely to diabetic patients. A randomized, double-blind, positive-controlled, multicenter trial assessed 35 dogs with confirmed osteoarthritis of the hip or elbow for their response to orally administered glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate.
Carprofen was used as the control. Although onset of efficacy was slower than carprofen, dogs treated with glucosamine-chondroitin showed statistically significant improvements in pain scores, severity and weightbearing by day 70.1.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Pain Inflammation Hip & Joint Care soft chews contain Certified Organic hemp oil and flour which are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids with a near perfect 3:1 ratio of alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) and linoleic acid (omega-6). Research shows that substances found in the hemp plant have an anti-tumor effect. It has even been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and increase tumor cell death. Hemp oil is an all-natural dietary supplement that increases cognitive function, promotes digestive health, and works to keep dogs limber. Substances in the hemp plant have been shown to relieve pain, help manage seizures, help with inflammatory bowel disease, reduce chronic inflammation and autoimmune disease, protect the nervous system and help with neurodegenerative diseases, increase appetite and help with nausea, help with heart health by reducing by reducing damaged blood vessels and reducing heart rate and blood pressure associated with stress and anxiety. Hemp oil supports healthy looking skin and soft, shiny coats. "Certified Organic" status of the hemp oil and flour ingredients ensure they are free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, toxins, and other contaminants. Hemp is a plant that absorbs toxins from the ground and it is important to ensure that hemp ingredients are always "CERTIFIED Organic" not just "organic" as there are no regulations on these hemp ingredients. Brad Pattison Pet Wellness always uses Certified Organic hemp in all products.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Pain Inflammation Hip & Joint Care soft chews contain Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid). The most important and best-known characteristic of hyaluronic acid is its ability to bind water. However, it is also capable of much more. Hyaluronic acid is most often used in the treatment of joint diseases and in wound healing. It is one of the two main components of joint fluid, with physical properties similar to rubber. The viscosity of synovial fluid is inversely dependent on the water content. Less water makes it more viscous. This effect is put to work in the joint – pressure on the joint expels water, concentrates the joint solution and thereby lessens the pressure. It also has a significant analgesic (pain-relieving) effect. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide occurring commonly in the skin, eyes, joint fluid and cartilage. Its molecule can be thought of as a long chain, whose properties and effect on the body depend on its length (molecular weight). Long chains of hyaluronic acid, because they are endogenous, do not cause inflammatory reactions, and could be considered anti-inflammatory agents. For this reason, since the 1970s it has been used in the treatment of arthritic conditions and other joint diseases in animals, particularly horses and dogs. Initially, injections were applied directly into the affected joint, mainly as a substitute for corticosteroids. A problem was that, in a small but significant percentage of cases, this form of administration caused joint infections or cartilage damage because of the needle. In response, from the 1990s the intravenous administration of hyaluronic acid became increasingly common. Although this method was initially received with scepticism, scientific studies demonstrated the efficacy of intravenous administration. It came to light only recently that, in response to joint problems, specially modified hyaluronan (hyaluronic acid or HA) may also be administered orally. It's ability to attract water and promote the natural healing process is mainly used with poorly healing wounds. Hyaluronic acid actively attracts water from tissues surrounding the wound and thus entrains healing precursors into the damaged tissue. This significantly accelerates the entire natural healing process. At the same time, HA influences the deposition of collagen in the skin and thereby reduces the size and extent of scarring. This capability is welcome, especially where it is necessary to maintain the elasticity of the skin after wound healing – this is typically required with fetlock joints. HA is also used with ophthalmological problems or inflammatory diseases of the muscles and tendons of horses. Research studies have shown that using hyaluronic acid for dogs can be effective in supporting healthy joint function and mobility.
