It is safe to say that we all want to protect our dogs. We want to do what is best for them and in a lot of cases that is giving supplements to help protect their joints as they get older and whilst they are competing.

However the use of supplements both in dogs and people have always been disputed about whether they actually work. Research in dogs is lacking but there is more and more research in humans. Obviously you can’t take human research and say that the same is for dogs, they are different animals to us and different drugs will affect them in a way they will not affect us. However using the research that is available for humans can help us get an idea of what could be beneficial for our dogs. At the very least – it can help us!
