Flexadin Chewable Tablets For Joint Support

As our pets age, their mobility can decrease due to natural wear and tear in the joints and cartilage. Just like with joint wear and tear in humans, joint wear and tear in pets can make it more difficult for them to run, jump and walk. Joint supplements can help improve your pet’s quality of life by supporting normal joint function and stimulating joint cartilage. Our Winnipeg veterinarian recommends Flexadin chewable tablets to support joint health and overall pet wellness. Flexadin tablets contain unique active ingredients that help to support normal joint function, including Glucosamine, chondroitin. These ingredients help prevent further bone and joint damage in your pet and also relieve join stress so your pet can get back to living a healthy, active life.

Protect Your Pet’s Joints with Flexadin Chewable Tablets

Our Winnipeg veterinarian recommends Flexadin chewable joint supplement tablets for health joint and cartilage support in both cats and dogs. Flexadin tablets combine Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin sulphate, complementary ingredients that support healthy joint function and may reduce further joint damage. Glucosamine may help to promote the production of collagen in cartilage, strengthening your pet’s remaining cartilage structure. Chondroitin fights against white blood cell enzymes that damage cartilage, which helps protect the cartilage structure that remains. Flexadin tablets also contain Manganese and Harpagophytum procumbens (Devil’s claw) for enhanced whole body health. This combination of ingredients can improve the quality of life for your pet in the early stages of joint deterioration and may reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medications.

Just like with humans, many pets develop joint disease at some point in their lives. While joint disease may initially be very mild and even imperceptible to pet owners, as deterioration worsens over time, joint disease can be truly debilitating. Joint disease can have a profound impact on a pet’s quality of life, resulting in significant pain and possible lameness. Common signs of joint disease include stiffness, limping, difficulty rising after sleeping or laying on the ground, and the reluctance to jump or even walk up stairs. As joint deterioration worsens, you may notice your pet favoring one limb over another.

Thanks to advancements in veterinary medicine, our Winnipeg veterinarian is now able to do more than ever before to help manage joint pain in your pet. Our treatment goals are to relieve your pet’s pain, improve mobility, and preserve existing cartilage. Joint supplements like Flexadin chewable tablets play an important role in achieving all three of these goals. By preserving existing cartilage and reducing additional damage, joint supplements help to slow the decline of your pet’s joint problems. This is especially important in the early stages of the disease when prompt, proactive intervention can make a significant difference for your pet’s quality of life.

Our Winnipeg veterinarian recommends that your pet receive a comprehensive exam prior to starting any nutritional supplement. To learn more about the benefits of Flexadin Chewablet tablets, or to schedule your pet’s diagnostic exam, call us at 204.452.9010.
