Dogs are indeed a lot like us humans. This is true not just emotionally, but also in their physical health. They need to be fed the right kind of diet to maintain overall good health. A lot like us, our dogs also develop weakening of their bones, especially as they get old. Arthritis, a condition of weak and brittle bones, is common among dogs, and so are common injuries and bone conditions from general wear and tear. It is indeed equally painful for a dog lover to see the pet suffer from such conditions. Veterinary science has thus seen the development of nutritional supplements to mitigate the conditions of weakness of the bones in dogs.

It is essential that one never substitutes such dog-specific arthritis products with human arthritis treatment products available at the chemist. The human arthritis products simply don't contain active ingredients at the required ratios for dogs. For instance, excessive supplementation of Glucosamine has been suspected to lead to Canine Diabetes.

Joint Guard and Sashas Blend are two popular nutritional supplements given to dogs for strengthening their bones. While some dog owners find them more or less the same, there actually are certain significant differences between the two that make one thing preferred by some dogs over the other. Here we examine what aspects of each are favoured by dogs in general.

To begin with, Joint Guard is a nutritional supplement developed using purified ingredients, and is clinically proven to be effective in the exact dose and ratio as specified. It treats joint problems arising from arthritis, injury and usual wear-and-tear. Joint Guard contains not only highly potent Chondroitin sulfate and Glucosamine hydrochloride, both of which are found in human arthritis products, but also a dose specific to dogs that better suits the efficacy and safety. Joint guard also contains Mesthyl Sulfonyl Methane, or MSM, which is a natural sulphur based ingredient which, when given in the right doses, has been shown to help reduce the pain related to the inflammation of joints. Joint Guard is as cost-effective as human arthritis products, and is available through your pet store, vet and even online. It comes in a 'no taste, no smell powder', being preferable to fussy eaters. A tastier option is the newly medicated Joint Guard Liver Chews, but it contains only 1/4th of Joint Guard powder.

Sashas Blend, like Joint Guard, also isn't mere Chondroitin and Glucosamine, but is also rich in natural compounds. These substances include a full range of GAGs that have been proven to contain joint protective properties. The natural active ingredients allow better lubrication and nourishment of the joint fluid. Sashas Blend 's continual use is also proven to lead to enhanced joint function, and not simply healing, but also regeneration of connective tissue and cartilage in your pet's joints. As Sashas Blend isn't a synthetic drug, there are no proven side effects to it. What's more, it can be given to dogs and cats alike, and even in conjunction with other arthritis medications. Thus, in case of severe symptoms, one can choose Sashas Blend over Joint Guard for its enhanced functions. Finally, some dogs that love the taste of fish prefer Sashas Blend over Joint Guard.

Especially in winter dogs can suffer from joint paid. The above mentioned brands are just two which we would recommend. Sometimes I would buy sashas blend. But if it is cheaper than I would be happy to go for joint guard.
