Maggie who is now 10 years old is definitely considered a senior dog. In fact in human years she would be around 70. And as her owner, I can see that she is not the crazy beagle she was in her younger years. Don’t get me wrong, she is still all beagle, loves to sniff, loves to eat and loves not listening to you.
She is just a wee bit slower, and she really does not like to play as much as she did when she was a puppy.
What I noticed the most thought was after a long walk, she was exhausted and a bit stiff the next day. Now if you are like me, you will want your dog to live a full and active life. The last thing you want is to see your pup suffer.
Helping Older dogs with Flexadin Advance
Did you know Osteoarthritis is very common in dogs, and while there is no cure for it, it is a very manageable condition with the right supplements and diet.
Sometimes we might think that our dogs are slowing down or feeling stiff due to their inevitable old age. I know I have thought about that and I am always describing Maggie as my “little old dog“. The early stages of joint stiffness or decreased mobility in dogs can be subtle and difficult to detect.
Signs of joint pain in dogs
- Shows difficulty when jumping into cars or climbing stairs.
- Become reluctant to get up/ lie down in the morning/ evening, particularly on colder days.
- Whining or crying even when comforted or when a certain area is touched.
- Change their grooming habits, e.g. licking/chewing their joints.
- Change in their eating habits, e.g. decreased appetite.
If you’ve recognised any of the signs listed in your dog, don’t worry. There is plenty you can do to help your dog’s joints and ease their discomfort.Before you do anything: Consult your vet as they will be able to help with the correct diagnosis. From there they will help and work with you to develop a tailored plan to address your dog’s specific problems.
Flexadin chews have four key features:
- Promotes mobility and flexibility by easing stiffness and discomfort
- Supports stiff joints
- Helps to maintain joint structure and function
- Easy to give to your dog
Why I like Flexadin
It’s easy to give! Each dose is a bite size chewy treat. So Maggie get’s all excited when I open the bag. Now I have to admit, whew they stink! But as we all know the stinker the treat, the more your dog will love it. Maggie loves them!
Also it does not matter if your dog is beagle size, Labrador size or somewhere in between. It’s one chew a day regardless of your dog’s weight.
It’s their unique formulation that makes Fexain more convenient and cost effective compared to other join support supplements. A great benefit for larger dogs.
Unlike traditional joint supplements, Flexadin Advanced doesn’t contain glucosamine or chondroitin. Instead, it’s made from 3 unique key ingredients:
- (undenatured type II collagen)
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin E
UC-II® is an undenatured type II collagen, which works with your dog’s body to maintain joint structure and function.
Omega-3 fatty acids helps the natural anti-inflammatory action of your dog’s metabolism to soothe stiff joints.
Vitamin E is a well-recognised antioxidant, which helps to neutralise free radicals and supports the normal structure of your dog’s joints cartilage.
Maggie is still my little old dog, however I am happy that I am helping her feel good in her golden years. While Maggie is thinking she is just getting an extra treat, I know I am helping her feel the best she can be.
