I was looking for an affordable joint alternative for my 75lb American Bulldog and these fit the bill! He usually would wake up with morning stiffness so my vet prescribed Dasuquin which was very pricy. After doing some research, Frolic basically has the exact same active ingredients for a third of the price! My dog takes them like treats due to their bacon scent. Highly recommend. No morning stiffness for him!
After four months of twice daily joint support with Frolic, my senior, giant-breed rescue dog was noticeably less stiff and enjoying increased range and mobility. His vet was so impressed that I was able to cut his arthritis medication dosage in half while still maintaining the improvements.
My dog enjoys the taste so no need to bury in food. Maybe too soon to see full benefits but seems to be helping her with hip weakness.
I love these products! They are much cheaper than my previous supplements. My dogs happily eat the joint supplements like a treat so there is no fussing, creative pill hiding, or shoving pills into their mouth.
DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE: A GUIDE TO JOINT HEALTH IN DOGS AND CATS
Recognizing and treating degenerative joint disease (DJD) in pets is essential to keeping our companions comfortable and active as they age. One of the most common causes of pain in animals, DJD is due to chronic wear and tear on the joints resulting in loss of the joint’s protective cartilage “cushion”. There are a number of causes that can contribute to DJD -- including trauma, genetics, conformation and nutrition -- and successful treatment likewise requires more than one approach.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY DOG HAS DJD?
With their natural exuberance and eagerness to please, it can be difficult to recognize when a pet is in pain. DJD is often subtle, with owners first noticing that their pet just seems to be “slowing down”. Specific signs to watch for include:
- Increased difficulty getting up or laying down
- Limping, especially just after getting up
- Reluctance to jump up or down from previously well-loved furniture
- Less enthusiasm for play sessions, walks or games of fetch
- Irritability in a previously good-natured animal
Once DJD is suspected, there are a number of steps you can take to help protect your pet’s joints and ensure as many happy years of pain-free mobility together.
High quality joint supplements containing glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and MSM are one of the first lines of defense against emerging DJD. With ingredients that help to protect and rebuild cartilage, supplements such as Frolic help ensure your dog’s body has the building blocks it needs to maintain optimal joint health.
No one enjoys a diet, but one of the best things you can do for your arthritic pet is to help them achieve their optimal weight. Extra pounds mean extra stress on joints, and shedding even a little extra weight can make your pet feel years younger.
When supplements are not enough, your veterinarian will likely recommend adding a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) or other pain medication to your pet’s treatment regimen. These can either be used as needed or on a daily basis, depending on your pet’s degree of discomfort.
EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL THERAPY
Moderate, low-impact exercise can help maintain range of motion and prevent loss of muscle mass in the arthritic pet. In addition to traditional leash walks, some exercises that may be particularly beneficial include:
- Walking over uneven terrain like sand, gravel or cushions
- Repeated sit-to-stands to help build core strength
- Helping your pet balance on 3 legs in order to build muscle in limbs they may be favoring
During all exercise, remember to follow your pet’s lead. If they show signs of fatigue or distress, it’s time for a rest.
Alternative medicine is no longer just for people. Acupuncture and laser therapy are increasingly available at vet clinics and pet rehabilitation centers, and can be an excellent addition to your pet’s healthcare regimen.
