Nutritional Supplement Gives Dogs a New Lease on Life


A hot dog joint supplement is allowing dogs to regain an active, pain-free lifestyle.

Denver, CO – Have you noticed your dog slowing down? Signs of joint issues and hip dysplasia include limping or lameness, stiff or awkward movements, whimpering when joints are touched, difficulty climbing stairs or jumping up into the car, and sleeping longer.

As dogs get older, the cartilage in the joints becomes less flexible and the amount of cushioning fluid between the joint surfaces decreases. This allows the joint surfaces to come in contact and cause friction, which in turn causes pain and inflammation. This pain and swelling affect the dog’s mobility, because he or she chooses to reduce movement to avoid the pain. Arthritis in dogs and hip dysplasia are two of the most common causes of loss of mobility.

But you can help reduce the symptoms of dog joint pain. With the use of proven natural joint supplements to support and nourish the joints and hips, the cartilage can be made more pliable and the amount of cushioning fluid in the joints increased to reduce the friction and provide better mobility and reduced pain and swelling.

Many commercially available joint supplements for dogs–both non-prescription and prescription–contain pain relievers and anti-inflammatory ingredients that treat the symptoms of joint pain rather than the conditions that cause it.

Since 2003, ProPet Sciences has offered a revolutionary new joint supplement and hip supplement for dogs called Flavocin™. This product contains no drugs or painkillers and acts on the causes of the joint pain rather than the symptoms by providing natural nutritional support important for joint health and mobility. Flavocin also contains powerful antioxidant ingredients that may help improve circulation, fight damaging free radicals and cell oxidation, and aid in the fight against aging in dogs.

The Science behind Flavocin

Several research studies have shown beneficial results for dogs with joint problems. Flavocin’s unique formula is a therapeutic agent for the management of osteoarthritis and the healing and protective effects of the ingredients in Flavocin are well documented.

Flavocin may act in two ways to nutritionally support hip and joint health; by supporting joint function and also providing antioxidant support to aging cells tissues.

Unlike drugs, the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate ingredients in Flavocin have been shown to be effective in helping both symptoms AND causes of joint problems in dogs and hip dysplasia in dogs . Glucosamine for dogs has been widely available for years as a dog arthritis treatment, but it is much more effective when used in conjunction with chondroitin. This is commonly referred to as a ”synergistic effect”, i.e. the effect of the two ingredients combined is more effective than their use individually. Known in the medical world as “chondroprotectives”, research has shown that these active ingredients carry out a remarkable process that may help with dog arthritis or hip dysplasia in dogs by:

  • Reducing joint pain and inflammation
  • Protecting cartilage from further damage
  • Repairing and restoring damaged cartilage and joint tissue in older dogs
  • Stimulating the growth of new cartilage in dogs with joint problems

More than two decades of research studies, publications and abstracts have reported on the health benefits of its key ingredient… a naturally occurring plant compound extracted from the seeds of the vitis vinifera. This powerful antioxidant, known by several trade names such as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), or bioflavanol, or flavan-3-ol, this active ingredient in Flavocin has been awarded United States Patent 4,963,527.

These powerful antioxidant ingredients may help to:

  • Improve circulation
  • Benefit skin and coat
  • Help support resistance to allergies
  • Support healing, energy and endurance
  • Promote healthy immune system function

The Gold Standard in Dog Joint Supplements

Flavocin has set a high standard for research and manufacture of the highest quality dog joint supplements for nearly a decade, helping tens of thousands of dogs lead happier, more mobile lives with less pain.

Will you continue to let your dog’s joint health decline or will you take this opportunity to turn back the clock and get back to hiking, playing, and exploring with your dog?
