Which pets can benefit from a joint supplement and why?
Sometimes your pet’s joints may need a bit of support to maintain their flexibility and mobility, particularly those with an active lifestyle, older animals or ones with stiff joints. Time, exercise and previous problems in the joint can affect the cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the bones in a joint, and the synovial fluid which lubricates a joint – both are important to keep joints functioning well. Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets help the body to manufacture the necessary building blocks of cartilage and the synovial membrane (which produces synovial fluid) to help support joint health.

Why is the correct ratio of Glucosamine & Chondroitin important?
Glucosamine and chondroitin are the perfect partners when combined in a joint supplement for dogs and cats as they have a synergistic effect, meaning they have more effect when given together than alone. However, it is important that they are given in the correct ratio to be most beneficial - there needs to be twice the amount of glucosamine to chondroitin. Dorwest's Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets each contain 400mg of glucosamine and 200mg of chondroitin.

What type of Glucosamine is used and why?
There are two types of glucosamine you may see in supplements; glucosamine sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride. Glucosamine sulphate is more commonly used in human supplements, but Dorwest use glucosamine hydrochloride as hydrochlorides are quickly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract (within 15–30 minutes). So, for dogs and cats who have a short digestive tract and therefore a short transit time for nutrients to be absorbed, this is particularly important.

Are the ingredients used in Dorwest Glucosamine & Chondroitin tablets for Dogs and Cats from sustainable sources?
Because our impact on the environment is so important, both ingredients are from sustainable sources, from shellfish such as crabs and crustaceans and most definitely not from sharks.  Dorwest use glucosamine hydrochloride obtained from the shells of crustaceans, usually a mixture of shrimp, oyster and crab shells, making use of something that would otherwise be discarded. The chondroitin they use is sourced from squid cartilage as another by-product of the food industry.

Is Dorwest Glucosamine & Chondroitin tablets for Dogs and Cats natural?
Dorwest does not add an array of ‘extra’ ingredients to make their joint supplement sound more impressive.  They are confident that the good quality ingredients at the right levels make their Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets the perfect product for supporting your pet’s joints naturally.
