Client handout: The gist of joint supplements in dogs with osteoarthritis
Let's start with an excerpt from this client handout, developed by veterinary orthopedic surgeon David Dycus, DVM, MS, CCRP, DACVS:
"It’s easy to become overwhelmed by all the joint supplement choices available through drug stores, pet stores and online. And it’s important to understand that oral joint supplements are considered nutraceuticals (foods that provide health benefits), not pharmaceuticals (medicinal drugs). Because of this there is minimal to no federal regulation on supplements’ production and manufacturing. A startling majority of companies may not meet the claims made on their product labels, so it’s a 'buyer beware' joint supplement market."
Here's your invitation to step in as the expert in this buyer beware market—an opportunity that makes this client handout gold for you and your veterinary clinic when it comes to discussing the added benefits of joint supplements in dogs with osteoarthritis.
