Probios® Dog Treats - Hip & Joint w/Glucosamine - 1lb Pouch 70%OFF
Today, we’re seeing glucosamine being added to everything for our dogs, from treats and dog foods to even dental chews and toys.
Glucosamine dog treats contain a substance that has been shown to increase the production of proteins that help to repair worn and painfulcartilage. Glucosamine is already present in the body, but decreases inproduction as a dog begins to age. Studies indicate that supplementing with this natural ingredient increases joint health for dogs with arthritis or hip dysplasia. It provides anti-inflammatory benefits and can even help to regenerate cartilage, therefore decreasing pain and preventing further damage.
There are many different brands of glucosamine dog treats on the market. Of these, there are different flavors and ingredients included in each. You may want to experiment to see if your dog prefers a peanut-butter flavored treat over something like beef or chicken flavors. You may also find that certain brands of glucosamine dog treatsinclude additional vitamins and minerals that may be of benefit. Chondroitin is one such ingredient that has also been shown to assist dogs with relief of pain and other symptoms caused by aging joints.

There seems to be a lot of confusion when it comes to baking with glucosamine on whether its potency or composition degrades when exposed to heat. There are a few things to consider when baking with glucosamine, but you can rest assured that if you add it to your next batch of dog treats, you will be helping your dog maintain healthy joints.Studies have shown that glucosamine begins to degrade at temperatures of 375° F (190° C) and above1. Most dog treat recipes call for oven temperatures of 350°, so you should have no problem finding a recipe where you can safely add glucosamine and keep your dog's joints healthy.Glucosamine is usually formulated along with chondroitin, another component of cartilage. The supplement can be found in most food and drug stores, and is most widely available in tablet form. However, if you plan to add the supplement to your next batch of dog treats, you need to look for it in liquid form. You can find a GNC glucosamine / chondroitin formula for dogs at PetSmart.The recommended daily dosage is approximately 750 mg of glucosamine for every 50 pounds of body weight.2 That equates to 3 tsp of most liquid glucosamine/chondroitin supplements. Assuming that the typical dog treat recipe will make about 20 large treats, and you feed your dog one per day, you'll want to add 30 - 60 tsp (1/2 cup - 1 cup) to the batch.
