Did you know that lamb knuckles contain Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is a natural compound found in the building blocks of cartilage. When dogs suffer from arthritis or bone and joint pain, glucosamine can help to cushion the area between joints where cartilage is missing, thin, or damaged.  Because glucosamine is a natural supplement, it can also be found in foods your dog will love. There are some excellent sources of glucosamine found naturally in foods your dog can eat every day (see below for the list of foods). And what better way to offer a supplement to your dog than in their meals or treats.

What other foods contain Glucosamine

  • Chicken feet
  • Ox or pig tails
  • Knuckle bones
  • Shellfish shells (shrimp, prawns)
  • Green lipped muscles (These can be purchased in-store)
  • Bone broth
