Sometime Others Agree On Canine Arthritis And Hip Dysplasia

Having other websites strike a like theory on canine arthritis and hip dysplasia is only partially satisfying because so few out there are saying the same thing but you get your pleasure where you find it. This is taken from The Hollistic and Organix Pet Shoppe website in a posting “How Canine Arthritis And Diet Are Connected”

On the site, it says this, “Most all pet foods today have potatoes in them. Potatoes aren't good for arthritis and joints. That goes along with your nightshade family food group as well as all grains. IF you are feeding kibble, start today by getting your dog (if they are not already) on a joint support. Add in some vitamins and minerals, probiotics and enzymes, . . .” which coincides with what I have written except that I consider those minerals and enzymes to be joint support, not glucosamine and chondroitin, MSN, and other conventional, over the counter remedies.

Minerals, if they are chelated for improved absorption, provide more nutrients to be metabolized in the skeletal system thus making the bones stronger and increasing mineral bone density(MBD) and reducing damage at the critical joints. The probiotics also increase digestion and bring other nutrients to the bones in higher quantities and, at the same time, heighten immune system response thereby both benefits work in combination to reduce inflammation and infection.

Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog incorporates amino acid chelates, raw mineral molecules bonded to amino acids, that greatly reduce and repair the damage that is done to a dog's joints from conventional nutrition and just plain wear and tear.

Canine Hip Dysplasia Can Be Affected By Digestive Enzymes

In an earlier blog, I discussed digestive enzymes and how those additives make overall health of dogs better but I wanted to tell you a little more about why and how. . . . . .

Bone Mineral Density Plays A Part In Canine Hip Dysplasia

Minerals play an unmistakable vital role in canine hip dysplasia . . . . .

The Natural Therapy Centre for Animals Comments On Canine Hip Dysplasia

The Natural Therapy Centre for Animals had these things to note on their website:

Diseases of the musculoskeletal system in dogs have been a considerable veterinary problem for decades. Statistics compiled by the canine science associations indicate that 70-75% of the entire canine population are affected. 
More than half of the dogs of all breeds exhibit canine hip dysplasia (CHD).
Marc Torel and Klaus Dieter Kammerer - a veterinarian and a scientific journalist with medical training - believe
  • CHD is not heritable
  • existing dog food is the original cause of CHD.
In these authors' view, canine hip dysplasia is induced solely by malnutrition.”

These current dog food formulations cause dogs to grow fast and have a good pounds of feed to pounds of weight gained ratio, much to the delight of commercial breeders. This improved ratio results from bones and tissue growing fast from the higher levels of protein and grain based carbohydrates but, the bones did not develop into a hard, sound system and the stress on the shoulder and leg joints is proving the undoing of many dogs.

If your dog is now grown and is displaying signs of arthritis and/or hip/elbow dysplasia, you may think it is a lost cause but, it really isn't. Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog is a chelated mineral and yeast, probiotic, and digestive enzyme treatment that will put some solid structure back in those inflamed joints and increase immune response so that there will be reduced infection in the same areas.

We have numerous field trials where dogs have literally been put back on their paws and now walk and run normally. They also show better energy levels, improved coat quality, and reduced feed maintenance costs.

Mannan Oligosacharrides Protect Your Dogs Health

Mannan Oligosacharrides or MOS are substances extracted from yeasts with a process called hydrolyzing. The yeasts are saturated in water and the MOS can then be harvested from the yeasts.

You may not have heard of MOS but they have been around for a while and they provide significant health advantages for your dogs. First off, when female dogs have puppies, it has been shown that there are lowered mortality rates and heavier birth rates of newborns.

There are also levels of protection in the gut that seems to coat the gut lining and prevent pathogens from attaching to the wall of the digestive system and colonizing and growing in number. This is important because bacteria like salmonella is present almost everywhere but is a levels low enough that they do no harm and this stops them from growing in numbers in the digestive tract and preventing dangerous breaks.

The third benefit is that when salmonella is present in a dog food, MOS acts as a binder to salmonella bacteria as it ties it up and does not do the level of harm that it could. Some dog food companies put a type of clay in dog food to serve as a binder for bacteria but this is not very effective because the clay has limited absorptive surfaces and is non-nutritional, that is, it has no food value.

MOS has much better absorptive qualities and carries some nutritional benefits with it.

Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog contains MOS and this is a key benefit that you will not find in almost any other canine supplement or food product.

Probiotics Can Help Bring Relief For Canine Arthritis

There has been a tremendous increase in the popularity of probiotics in our diet and also for our companion animals. The reasons are numerous as the treatment brings benefits to many areas including better and more efficient digestion, weight gain and conditioning, increased immune system response, defense against gut pathogens, and improved nutrient utilization.

Our dogs experience the same benefits and is added to to some dog foods and is fed as a supplement to a regular diet. Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog does just that and goes even further. Triad contains five sources of probiotics, four sources of digestive enzymes, and two sources of yeasts. All these ingredients work together to maximize the performance of direct fed microbials and provide the best health benefits

One of the areas that has not been connected to probiotics is in an area that screams for help in the canine world. That is pain relief from the inflammation that results from arthritis and hip dysplasia.

The increased immune system activity that results is due to the fact that approximately 80% of immune activity is generated in the digestive system and that is where Triad's eleven digestive ingredients work in combination to greatly multiply the beneficial outcome.

The enhanced nutrient availability also works to improve the soundness and flexibility of connec-
tive tissue. Those tendons and ligaments become sources of pain due to inflammation and infection. Better nutrition fights the infection and reduces the inflammation and increases your dog's comfort and ease of motion.

TriadPerformance Supplement also matches their digestive aids with chelated minerals to form a team of health benefits that is unmatched in the canine industry and a particularly effective treatment for canine arthritis and hip dysplasia.

Joint Problems in Dogs Can Be Resolved With Nutrition

If you have a large dog that is over 6 to 8 years old, there seems to be a terrible plague that can be categorized as joint problems. It may be canine arthritis or hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia but, it all seems to come back to not just a common problem but an almost dominant problem.

To associate this problem with genetics seems to be a stretch to say the least. Think about it, all the large breed dogs with many thousands of family trees and as many thousands of breeders and in about twenty years, we have come from a place where these joint problems were non-existent in the 1930's to a place where three dogs in four have the affliction.

There are and have always been good breeders, bad breeders, those that breed for traits, those that in-breed, those that don't, those that love dogs, those that love money, and those that just plain don't give a damn. With all that said, three fourths of the large dogs during a twenty year span developed conditions that are diagnosed as dysplasia and arthritis. It really sounds like a fairy tale when it comes to the feasibility department or at least a stretch that will give a lot of humans hip dysplasia.

A good alternative theory is the introduction of high carbohydrate and high protein formulations that were and are grain based and have a minimum of 20 to 28 percent protein and over 1200 carbohydrate calories per pound. These diets caused dogs to grow bigger and faster, much to the approval of many breeders, but it also made bones grow fast but not hard. The emergence of joint problems in dogs and the marketing of just such canine feeding programs came on fairly identical time lines and coincidences are just too numerous to ignore.

The assimilation and storage of minerals in the skeletal system can help bring mass and hardness back into those softened bones and the quickest way to increase that density is with chelated trace minerals as a supplement to your regular feeding program and Triad Performance Supplement is formulated to do just that. Manufactured and marketed by Build ABetter Dog, the product has shown to be instrumental in getting senior dogs back on their paws and increasing their activity by reducing joint pain and increasing energy levels.
