Did you know that 1 out of 4 dogs suffers from arthritis?

Arthritis is a progressive degenerative joint issue characterised by degeneration, chronic inflammation and impaired immune response. Visible signs include stiffness, swollen and painful joints, reduced mobility and discomfort which have a major impact on quality of life and expectancy.

Arthritis doesn't just affect older animals. 70% of joint issues results from developmental problems: studies show that 22% of dogs with arthritis are less than 12 months.

There are two main types of joint problems in dogs, so it’s never too early to think about an animal's long-term joint health or administering natural joint support and an arthritis supplement for dogs to help to offset the degenerative effects of ageing.

JOINT PROBLEM

1. Developmental

  • Hip or elbow dysplasia
JOINT PROBLEM

2. Degenerative

  • osteoarthritis

Degenerative joint issues can get worsen as an animal grows older if left untreated.

Both developmental and degenerative joint issues involve inflammation. Swelling and pain are part of an animal's body’s attempt to heal from injury and wear and tear, sending antibodies and white blood cells to promote healing.

Inflammation that goes unchecked can add to a dog’s joint issues:

Joints are lined with a thin layer of cartilage that produces a fluid that lubricates the joint. This helps the joints move and function without any friction or pain.

Over time, antibodies from chronic inflammation begin to attack the joint lining and ironically, exacerbate the joint issues they’re trying to protect against and it becomes a chronic problem.

Factors that can increase the risk of joint disease:

Ageing
Genetic predisposition
Joint over-activity
Poor nutrition and high carbohydrates
Body imbalance
Infection and injury
Excess weight
Environmental toxins and heavy metals
immune dysfunction
Standard Treatment

Pathway inhibitors (anti-inflammatories)

If a dog is suffering from joint mobility issues, Compounds known as cox-2 inhibitors are generally taken. cox-2 inhibitors work by inhibiting the inflammatory process … which happens through something called a cyclooxygenase pathway (COX).

The COX pathways are vitally important for many body functions including:

  • Blood vessel constriction and blood clotting
  • Stomach acid production and mucous lining
  • Blood flow to the kidneys
  • Inflammatory response

Controlling inflammation and its associated discomfort with pathway inhibitors may cause issues in other parts of the body and may be associated with gut, kidney and liver toxicity. Serious adverse reactions can occur without warning and in rare situations can be fatal.

Pathway inhibitors can make a dog’s joint pain worse!

Recent studies show that one of the most serious adverse reactions to pathway inhibitors that are little appreciated is that as a class of compounds they cause the breakdown of articular cartilage, thereby accelerating osteoarthritis, the very problem for which they are most commonly prescribed!

Advanced triple-action joint care (joint, cartilage, bone)

NutraFlex Collagen with Type 2 Collagen, MSM and Vitamin C

NutraFlex Advanced triple-action-joint support (joint, cartilage, bone) is scientifically formulated with naturally occurring, bioactive ingredients backed by science, recommended by vets and animal nutritionists. Nutraflex is a next-generation bioactive " bone-broth" protein supplement, packed with a synergistic source of amino acids, naturally occurring joint nutrients, (glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid) vitamins and minerals

Collagen makes up over 70% of a dog’s muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other joint supporting tissues, but when it breaks down or diminishes with age, the dog’s joints can’t handle movement as well and the muscles and tissues become brittle. This results in inflammation and eventually joint disease, stiffness and discomfort.

Daily supplementation with NutraFlex Advanced (targeted hip and joint care for dogs and cats) can help restore and maintain collagen levels and regenerate natural collagen production for an active, happier and healthier life.

Advanced triple-action joint care (joint, cartilage, bone)

Formulated with Collagen Type II (Sourced from Chicken)

Our unique type II collagen is a naturally occurring source of chondroitin, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid.
Chondroitin is the major glycosaminoglycan in cartilage and when combined with glucosamine it becomes supercharged:

  • inhibits destructive enzymes in joint fluid and cartilage
  • helps the body repair damaged cartilage and
  • restores joint integrity
  • aids shock absorption
  • protects existing cartilage from premature breakdown
  • promotes cartilage tissue hydration

Glucosamine is a combination of glutamine (an amino acid) and glucose (a sugar).

Every dog’s body naturally produces glucosamine which helps create molecules that form the cartilage of a dog’s joints. But natural production declines with age.

Supplementing with naturally derived glucosamine and hyaluronic acid can repair damaged cartilage and tissues, help boost or replace lost joint fluid and relieve joint pain and discomfort.

Hyaluronic acid maintains joint lubrication, cushions joints and keeps them working smoothly.

Advanced triple-action joint care (joint, cartilage, bone)

Formulated with OptiMSM

4X distilled ultra-pure MSM 

MSM is a natural joint protector. It can relieve chronic discomfort and prevent swelling by activating cortisol — a natural hormone produced by the body. NutriFlex is formulated with OptiMSM GRAS designated MSM powder — 4X distilled it's ultra-pure and free from heavy metals. OptiMSM is rich in bioavailable organic sulphur which is vital for essential bodily function and optimal health of soft tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and lean muscle. MSM aids gut health and is shown to offer protection against intestinal worms and can reduce inflammatory markers and oxidative stress.

Advanced triple-action joint care (joint, cartilage, bone)

Formulated with Buffered Vitamin C

— pH neutral — non-acidic — gut-friendly

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and immune booster and promotes improved recovery from illness or injury. Nutriflex is formulated using calcium ascorbate, a buffered form of vitamin C which is more effectively absorbed and more gentle on the gut than regular vitamin C.

3. Maintain a pet's healthy weight

Excess weight increases the pressure on joints which causes premature wear and tear, inflammation and joint disease.
