What Makes a Good Pet Joint Supplement?
With the seemingly overwhelming variety of pet joint supplements on the market today, it is important to take your time, do your research and choose the best product available. There are many things we can do to aid in extending our pets lives. We should always monitor their diet and keep them at a healthy weight, give them daily exercise to make sure our pets are physically active, and consider a supplement to keep their joints healthy because we want our four-legged friends to receive the proper care they need.
A common problem pets suffer from as they age is joint discomfort. This ailment is basically an inflammation of the joints, and this common problem we also suffer from affects dogs and cats as well. The same supplement ingredients known to promote healthy joints for us – glucosamine, MSM, Collagen and others are also good for cats and dogs joint health.
Joint supplements used routinely and correctly have benefits in aiding mobility, reducing inflammation, and allowing our pets to lead a comfortable life. These supplements may also reduce or even eliminate the need for NSAIDs, which often have negative side effects and don’t repair the joints, only mask the pain. We always recommend consulting your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s routine, even if you are just adding supplements to their diet.
How to Choose the Right Supplement
How is the Product Rated? – Read the reviews. Are there a large number of reviews and is the source credible? Are the reviews written by verified users? Many times there are review sites that are just paid advertisements and “click-bait”. Take a look at the reviews found on well known and high volume sites such as, Walmart or Amazon. Also, take a look at reviews on social media sites like Facebook.
What do Veterinarians Say? – A reputable pet supplement will have the endorsement of a good veterinarian, and will often be available from them as well. Furthermore, making changes to your pet’s routine should be discussed with your vet as well. Talk to your vet and consider what they say regarding your pet’s health.
What’s Inside? – Take a look at the ingredients on the label. Glucosamine is a very popular ingredient in joint supplement for pets. But did you know there are different forms? And, not all of them are the most beneficial or effective for relief from joint discomfort. Make sure the supplement you choose uses Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium for maximum effectiveness. Look for a comprehensive product with no fillers, is an appropriate, safe and effective strength, and made with human grade ingredients.
Where is It Made? – Find a product that is produced in the USA and also uses raw materials from the USA. The guidelines for quality and safety are much stricter in the USA. And, the USA is the accepted leader when it comes to the best and safest ingredients in the world.
Is the Company Reputable? – Are they a member of the Better Business Bureau? Have they been in business for a long time, or did they just pop up overnight? Choosing a company with a history and a good reputation is imperative to making sure you are really getting what is advertised.
Is the Product Guaranteed? – Does the manufacturer stand behind their product? Any company that is truly confident in their supplement will honor their product and respect your purchase. A reputable provider of pet supplements will offer a guarantee or offer your money back if not satisfied with the results of the product.
Is it Worth It? – Many breeds of dogs are predisposed and heavily impacted by joint conditions. By being proactive and keeping our pets healthier with supplements we may be able to reduce the number of times they need to see the veterinarian. Therefore saving money in the long run.

All-Natural Flexpet Joint Supplement
Flexpet is a safe and all-natural way to help improve your dog’s joint function and quality of life. It is designed to help with joint discomfort and inflammation in pets – without the use of prescription medication. Flexpet has been on the market for nearly 20 years and is recommended by veterinarians. Flexpet has over 100 reviews on Amazon from verified purchasers. And furthermore, Flexpet is made from all natural human-grade ingredients, and it is made in the USA.
It is available in two forms – as a delicious maximum-strength soft chew treat and as a chewable tablet. Both forms are tasty treats to our pets so they won’t even know they’re taking a supplement.
Flexpet is the only pet product on the market to use CM8 (Cetyl Myristoleate), which was discovered by a researcher at the National Institutes for Health and gives joint discomfort relief. It is a cetylated fatty acid that occurs naturally in certain mammals. This ingredient helps lubricate the joints and reduced inflammation. It also helps stimulate the growth of cartilage and lubricating fluids in the joints, increasing overall mobility. Cetyl myristoleate has several patents for the treatment of arthritis. Flexpet soft chews contain 500mg of CM8, and the tablets 150mg. In order to bring short term relief as well as long term joint support, we combine CM8 with:
Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium (270 mg) – an amino sugar that helps support the structure and function of joints. It occurs naturally in the body and plays a key role in cartilage construction and the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage.
MSM (500 mg) – a sulfur compound that occurs naturally in plants and animals. It is needed by the body to form connective tissue. Studies show it helps reduce inflammation and pain.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II (150 mg) – this ingredient is used in an effort to protect and rebuild joint cartilage. Since collagen is the most common structural protein in the body, hydrolyzed collagen helps stimulate collagen production, decrease joint pain, and increase bone mass density.
Bromelain (83 mg) – found naturally in pineapple stems, it reduces inflammation for arthritis, and alleviates muscle stiffness and soreness.
Vitamin C (65 mg) – has many functions, including tissue repair, and can help reduce the degeneration of cells in articular cartilage. Vitamin C also strengthens the immune system and enhances resistance against viruses.
Enzyme Blend (10 mg) – aids in digesting and allowing the body to absorb the larger molecules like cetyl myristoleate. Enzymes improve your pet’s digestive process and reduce likelihood of soft stools.
