WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
Flex 2500 Soft Chews are formulated with Glucosamine, MSM, Creatine, Perna Canaliculus, Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamins, Minerals and Antioxidants. These multiple supporting elements supply nutrients to joints, preventing fluid and cartilage breakdown.
The joints within the body of equine and canines alike, aid in basic everyday movements. There are four joint types in the bodies of dogs. First, the Hinge joint are joints such as the knee, while allows abductions and adduction movements. Second, the Pivot joint which allow the head and neck to turn to right and left directions. Third, the ball and socket joint which is the joint located in the hip, allowing rotation. Fourth, the gliding joint allows rotation of the ankles. Every joint is supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to provide power to each joint. The joints are also cushioned with cartilage and synovial fluids to prevent bone-on-bone grinding.
Over time synovial fluids wear down, causing the bones to wear down together, this condition is known as acute or chronic joint disease. A pet which has developed acute joint disease will show signs of lameness and maybe painful to the touch. The joint itself may appear swollen and warm when felt. Chronic joint disease will cause the pet a great deal or pain and reduce the motion of their once flexible joints. As the condition progresses, the pet will become unwilling to move about, to travel, and will have daily lameness. A pet in this condition will be unable to perform as he/she once had and may become depressed. Secondary problems can arise from joint disease as pets will have difficulties standing.
