Cat, Dog and Arthritis
Updated: May 25, 2022
The growth process for cats and dogs is the fastest during the first few years of their life. And activities and motions often cause cartilage degeneration in joints quickly, which results in Arthritis.
Arthritis commonly affects cats and dogs aged 6 years and above. It can also happen earlier if there’s joint injury or for very active cats and dogs. Your pet’s joints will be inflamed and the cartilage will wear off; the bone responds by making new bone, which is why arthritic joints become knobby.
You can prevent the permanent loss of cartilage by intervening early.
Reduce weight if your pet is overweight and is putting too much pressure on your pet's joints
Encourage low impact exercises to avoid further damage eg: walk & swim
Feed supplements that protect cartilage and reduce inflammation - CAHO Agility+
WHY CHOOSE CAHO Agility+?
CAHO Agility+ contains green-lipped mussel which is one of the key active ingredients. According to a study conducted by the American Society for Nutritional Sciences, green-lipped mussel contains nutrients like:
Omega-3 fatty acids
Glucosamine and chondroitin
Vitamins and minerals such as zinc, copper, iodine & manganese
While fish oil is commonly known for its omega-3 fatty acids, it has only two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), while green-lipped mussels have a third one called ETA. ETA is a unique chain of omega-3 fatty acids which lowers the production of cyclooxygenase, an enzyme which causes inflammation. Hence, it results in less pain, less inflammation, and improved joint health for your pet.
Some studies by veterinarians and pet owners see improvements in mobility after incorporating green-lipped mussels into pets’ diets; such as the ability to rise from rest and increment in walking distance.
CAHO Agility+ contains the right dosage of green-lipped mussels goodness that will maintain and aid your pet’s mobility and joint health. You can start feeding your pets CAHO Agility+ before the onset of Arthritis as prevention!
CAHO Agility+ is available in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
