One of the most important parts of our bodies is the connective tissue and joints that hold us together and afford us movement.

Unsurprisingly, your pets are no different.

As with anything else in the body, as years go by things tend to age and maybe not work as well as they once did when we were younger and spryer. A combination of Father Time and neglecting to look after our bodies on a preventative level when we’re younger can end up manifesting as joint and tissue disorders, constant pain, and inflexibility as we age.

This is something that is observed in our animal friends as they age all too easily. Poor flexibility, hip and joint problems, decreases in energy, and arthritis are afflictions that befall our furry friends all too often because we often don’t even think about these problems until they become something that needs to be treated.

‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ as the old adage goes, and that’s why Totally Raw Pet Foods offers a product that will keep your pets healthier and more energetic throughout their lifetime; Joint Rescue 4 in 1 Joint & Connective Tissue Support.

Many joint supplements on the market contain one or two active ingredients to help with joint and connective tissue health, but we have taken the 4 most powerful and effective supplements available and combined them into one easy to use product that will benefit your pets in ways that no single supplement could.

Containing Glucosamine HCL, Perna Canaliculus (More commonly known as green-lipped mussel), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and Chondroitin Sulfate – as well as Rosemary – our Joint Rescue 4 in 1 is a super serum for your pets.

Glucosamine HCL

Glucosamine is a natural substance produced in both humans and animals. It’s found in the fluid around our joints and it’s used to repair connective tissue, like cartilage, in our bodies. As we age, our bodies produce less Glucosamine and our connective tissues begin to get thinner. Thinning cartilage combined with less of the substance used to maintain it is a bad combination, and it manifests itself as joint pain and stiffness, as well as arthritis.

Benefits of Glucosamine HCL

– It’s all natural and naturally produced by the body.
– It’s safe. Glucosamine HCL is a very safe supplement with no commonly known side-effects.
– It’s a NATURAL pain reliever that may reduce reliance on prescription medication. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) are temporary pain relievers for your dog, but they may come at a high cost. The possible side-effects of NSAIDs may include internal bleeding, stomach or intestinal ulcers, or even kidney and liver failure. There is no such worry with Glucosamine HCL.
– It’s a natural joint lubricant that attracts and holds water in its molecules, providing natural joint cushioning!
– It creates an incredibly powerful combo when paired with Chondroitin, the next ingredient in our 4 in 1 Joint Rescue.

Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin is another substance found in cartilage. It promotes elasticity and water retention in cartilage and, like Glucosamine, inhibits the production of inflammatory elements that may damage joints and tissues. When combined with Glucosamine HCL, it is part of a potent pair that has many beneficial effects for your pet.

Benefits of Chondroitin Sulfate

– It’s a safe supplement with no commonly known side-effects.
– It’s an incredible treatment for pets suffering from Arthritis, as it provides significant pain reduction and allows the animal to stay more active – strengthening muscle and tissues in the process.
– When administered with Glucosamine, it works in tandem to reduce inflammation and inhibit enzymes that can destroy cartilage in your pets.

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

MSM is a joint healer, antioxidant, and cell rejuvenator. It’s a naturally forming sulfur compound and is stored in almost every cell in the body. As the body ages, the levels of MSM in the body decrease and this deficiency may manifest itself in the form of fatigue and organ and tissue malfunction.  Specifically, in dogs, MSM deficiency may result in fur or skin problems, poor gastrointestinal systems and joint pain and arthritis.

Benefits of MSM

– A safe supplement with no known side-effects.
– Joint and connective tissue support
– Pain relief from joint problems like arthritis and hip dysplasia
– A supplement for healthy skin and fur
– Anti-parasitic effect against intestinal worms when consumed

Perna Canaliculus (Green-lipped mussel)

This miracle from the sea is an incredibly powerful substance rich in Omega 3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA, which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Found only in New Zealand, these mussels are a superfood that has several measurable benefits for your furry friends.

Benefits of Green-lipped Mussel

– A safe supplement, however, pets with shellfish allergies should steer clear of GLM.
– Scientifically proven pain relief from conditions like osteoarthritis
– Offers boosts to circulatory and immune systems
– Powerful anti-inflammatory and natural pain reliever which may decrease reliance on prescription medications

Summary

Our 4 in 1 Joint Rescue improves your dog’s joint function and physical performance. Ideal candidates are puppies, adult and senior dogs, large breeds and sport and working breeds. Another valuable use for this product is for dogs who are pre and post orthopedic surgery.

A client recently sent us this review after her Labrador Retriever underwent major knee surgery only 2 weeks prior:

“The Joint Rescue seems to be working well – almost too well. We have to stop him now from running and jumping! We saw a huge difference after only a week’s use!”
