Does Glucosamine Help Dogs With Hip Dysplasia?

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance in your dog’s body, in your body as well. And the highest concentration of glucosamine is found in healthy cartilage. Glucosamine produces something called glycan, which is used to rebuild cartilage. As a dog ages, the glucosamine levels in the cells go down. And so supplementing your dog if your dog has hip dysplasia with a good quality supplement of glucosamine sulfate. Make sure it’s glucosamine sulfate, helps to replenish levels of glucosamine in the dog’s body which helps to rebuild and support healthy cartilage.
