Glucosamine and chondroitin are both found in supplements that have become widely used in treating both animals and humans for osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine is important in the maintenance of cartilage in the joint.
Chondrotin improves the synthesis of glycosamine and inhibits damaging enzymes in the joint. Glucosamine and chondroitin together essentially help to rebuild and lubricate joints.
When a dog has hip dysplasia or other osteoarthritis, the joint wears away and the bone-to-bone contact creates pain. Glucosamine and chondroitin give the cartilage-forming cells what they need to build new cartilage and to repair the existing damaged cartilage.
