What is it?

Chondroitin is a naturally occurring sugar found in cartilage.

What does it do?

Chondroitin is what gives your dog’s cartilage the soft, spongy texture it needs to cushion and protect their joints.

Why we chose it

It plays an integral role in repairing cartilage tissue while also blocking the enzymes that cause it to degrade in the first place.

Why not a generic chondroitin?

Our chondroitin is the most extensively researched on the market with over 40 clinical studies behind it.
