Chipper, my twelve year-old cocker spaniel, has more energy when we go for walks than he did
this spring. He often leads the way as we walk around our neighborhood (as long as interesting scents don’t distract him), and he now chases squirrels—something he hasn’t done in years.
Although he had been on glucosamine for years, it hadn’t seemed to make much difference to his arthritic joints. But a few months ago, I started using Welly Tails Senior Dog Care, and all I know, is that shortly afterwards, I noticed that he had more energy.
It has glucosamine and MSM for arthritis, but it also has several forms of Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA, EPA & ALA, these boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and promote a healthy coat) and probiotics (which promote good digestion), plus digestive enzymes. Here’s what the label says:
- Strong joint health support
- Brain and Eye health support
- 8 Powerful Digestive Enzymes
- 7 Immunity supporting probiotics
- Cranberry fruit powder
- Phytonutrients and Antioxidants
- L-carnitine for energy management
Why Give Supplements?
Many dog foods do not provide all the essential nutrients needed by senior dogs to remain active and healthy. Dr. Marty Becker from Vet Street recommends the following supplements for senior dogs:
- Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) which include (Omega-3 and Omega-6 which occur in oils that help promote brain health, boost immunity, and promote a shiny coat.
- Glucosamine with Chondroitin Sulfate for arthritis and works in conjunction with EFAs
- Probiotics – the “good” bacteria that aides with digestion and fighting off disease and stress
- Many times when my dogs develop severe diarrhea my vet will prescribe powerful probiotics – and they really do help.
Welly Tails Senior Dog Care is a powder that forms gravy when mixed with your dog’s food. Both my dogs ate it up. I highly recommend it.
