Fastrack Dog Supplement For Adult and Senior Dogs
Could your pet be in pain without your knowing it? If your pet is having difficulty getting up from rest, having difficulty with stairs, or difficulty walking, chances are your pet has arthritis. Arthritis is generally caused by injury, the daily wear and tear of joints, and aging. Larger canine breeds are predisposed to hip and spine arthritis while smaller breeds often suffer from knee and elbow arthritis. As arthritis progresses, the damaged tissues release compounds that cause inflammation and as inflammation progresses, joints become painful, resulting in lameness of the pet.
Common signs or symptoms of arthritis:
• Getting up from rest more slowly
• Difficulty going up or down stairs
• Difficulty walking or running, or overall slower movement
• Yelping or crying out when jumping or playing
Most people attribute these changes to the natural process of aging and do not realize that their friend is in pain. If your pet lives long enough, joint disease will occur to some degree; if it’s left untreated, your pet’s lifespan will be shortened. Traditional treatment often deals with the symptoms but not the cause. A nutritional and supplemental approach will rejuvenate the joints. Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) actually accelerate joint destruction because they inhibit the process by which the body repairs the diseased joint. They can also result in side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding or liver disease.
Fastrack – Senior Dog New research is revealing that most arthritic pets are deficient in many of the nutrients that are needed to maintain good health:
• Fatty acids. Most dry foods have insufficient fatty acids.
• Vitamins A, D, C, and E. Arthritic pets need extra Vitamins A, C, and E.
These vitamins are antioxidants that speed up tissue repair by neutralizing free radicals that originate from damaged tissues. Benefits of the Fastrack® Senior Dog Supplement:
• Promotes healing.
• Provides a whole body nutritional supplement without the side effects.
• Contains not only extra vitamins and minerals to help your arthritic pet, but also pharmaceutical grade glucosamine and chondroitin Glucosamine is a key component of cartilage repair and the production of joint fluid.
• Gives your pet a longer and better quality of life.
• Can be given safely & in conjunction with prescribed pain medicines.
• Promotes joint health with lifelong use.
You can benefit from incorporating the Fastrack Senior Dog supplement into the care regime for your:
• Breeding operation
• Athletic and working pets
• Animals recovering from an injury.
• Breeds prone to hip and joint issues Healing does take some time.
Most users of Fastrack products usually see major improvements in two to four weeks. Probiotics can assist with not only healing but overall health benefits. The Fastrack Canine microbial powder complements the Senior Dog Supplement. It contains “friendly bacteria” (probiotics) which enable maximum absorption of food and supplements and enhance the immune system. The two products complement each other to provide the overall health benefits your pet needs.
