Achy Jounts? # Chewy Influencer

My pack is growing old. Fudge is almost 13 and his pups are eleven. Sebastian is 7 and the two monster girls are 5.  Just like their peeps they feel some aches and pains on cold winter mornings. I learned a lot from Bentley and Morgan about dealing with arthritic joints and all my current dogs get glucosamine chondroitin, tumeric and fish oil daily to keep their aches at bay. I've recently added moringa which has been a big success.

This month Chewy offered us the chance to try a new product.  NaturVet Glucosamine DS Plus, Level 2 for Moderate Care is a chewable tablet that helps maintain healthy joints.
These tablets contain glucosamine from shellfish, MSM, yucca, chondroitin, calcium, vitamin E and omega fatty acids. The inactive ingredients are even impressive including brewers yeast, fish oil, and flaxseed.
I haven't stopped their regular supplements, but the girls tell me that these are a very tasty addition. My dogs all take medicines, both pills and liquids, nicely, but if you have a stubborn pet who doesn't like the idea of taking a pill for any reason, this could be an excellent way to administer some help with little or no fuss.
 As I understand it, glucosamine helps lubricate the joints so that they move more freely with less pain. This makes it not only a good help for arthritic dogs but as a preventive measure for active dogs that aren't showing signs of pain. I noticed on Chewy's web site that Glucosamine DS comes in different levels for different needs. The one we have is level 2 for moderate care. There is  a level 1 for maintenance and there is also one for cats.
Chewy sent us this Glucosamine DS Plus at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review.

It seems that a lot of bloggers are showing their Christmas Cacti lately, so here's a current photo of one of mine.
 It started flowering at the end of October and will probably go on until May.

Getting older is not easy some days. This looks like a great supplement and we do trust NaturVet.
Your Christmas cactus had lots of blooms. Hopefully, ours will have something next Christmas.

Roxy has the chewable type because she won't take tablets.

That is good to know. River has the same aches and pains.
