GLUCOSAMINE (GLUKO/MAX)  for dogs with joint problems

Dogs, like humans, can suffer from osteoarthritis and other joint problems. However, some large breeds of dogs are more likely to develop joint problems such as joint stiffness and osteoarthritis, as well as very active dogs such as hunting dogs and sporting dogs.

Many older dogs have problems with joint stiffness and arthritis, and for relief of joint pain and prevention of joint problems, glucosamine gives very good results.

Glucosamine can be administered to all breeds of dogs, large and small, and to dogs of all ages. Some veterinarians recommend giving dogs glucosamine right from puppyhood. You can always talk to your veterinarian about what would be the best solution for you and your dog.


Unfortunately, active and older dogs can experience joint stiffness and soreness. A daily dose of natural glucosamine can benefit active and elderly dogs, as glucosamine has a proven effect on osteoarthritis and in particular has an analgesic effect on joint pain.
Dogs may not be able to speak or ask to go to the vet or for treatment. You, as a dog owner, must protect your dog and provide a good doggy life.

Some of the typical signs of joint problems such as osteoarthritis:

  • The dog is limping;
  • The dog has an unusually stiff gait;
  • The dog has a reduced activity level and does not enjoy walks and playtime;
  • The dog has difficulty getting up from a basket or sofa if it has been lying still for some time;
  • The dog has difficulty getting in and out of the car;
  • The dog seems depressed.

The above symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, so it’s important to show your dog to the vet to make sure you’re treating properly.

However, if it is osteoarthritis or other joint conditions, glucosamine has proven to be very effective and a product that can really help give your dog back his quality of life.

GLUCOSAMINE (GLUKO/MAX)  is also suitable for cats.


Glucosamine is not only a super product for active and older dogs, but it is also a very good product for cats who, like dogs, can experience stiffness and joint pain.
Glucosamine is not only great for treating joint pain in dogs. You can also use glucosamine for cats.

Cats aren’t as prone to joint problems as dogs, but if your cat is lucky enough to reach old age, age will eventually take its toll on feline joints.

If you notice that your elderly cat has become stiffer in body and no longer jumps up and down on windowsills etc, you can often get very good results by using glucosamine as a cat supplement.

What is glucosamine?

Glucosamine is naturally found in both humans and animals. It is a sugary substance found in the cartilage of a joint.

Healthy cartilage formation is necessary for our joints to function well and without friction, but with age or heavy wear and tear, the natural production of glucosamine decreases.

When this happens, cartilage begins to break down as imperceptibly and so ceases to act as a kind of shock absorber between the joints. Every movement causes friction, which can be very painful.

By giving your dog glucosamine daily in the form of drops, tablets, powder or similar preparations, you can maintain the glucosamine content in your dog’s body and thus slow down the development of osteoarthritis.

Glucosamine is not a miracle drug that can cure osteoarthritis, but glucosamine has been shown to slow osteoarthritis, help prevent osteoarthritis, and relieve pain.
