HOW IT WORKS
Perfect dosing everytime!
Underdosing and overdosing with human glucosamine products is potentially very dangerous and it is important to dose exact amounts to avoid serious side effects including worsening of asthma symptoms in pets and gastrointestinal disturbances.
Randomised double blind trials in 85 dogs over a 6 week period indicated smaller and medium breeds showed a greater reduction in arthritic symptoms than large and giant breeds (57%, 39%) vs (33%, 32%). (Elliott et al 2007).
It is essential that a loading dose of at least 88mg/kg of chondroitin and glucosamine combined followed by a reduction in dose after an improvement is seen (4-6 weeks) was found to be ideal in pets (Davidson, 2000).
