The fact is, pets that stay active live longer. And nothing will slow your pet down like stiff, aching joints. Regrettably, many owners miss the signs of decreased joint mobility, because most dogs instinctively conceal their discomfort for as long as they can.
And if you don’t know what to look for, your pet could end up suffering in silence for years before it occurs to you to seek help for your dear furry friend.
7 Signs Your Pet Is Suffering From Joint Problems
- Difficulty sitting or standing
- Hesitancy to jump, run or climb stairs
- Favoring one limb over others
- Stiffness or swelling of joints
- Decreased range of motion
- Disinterest in play or other activities
- Weight gain due to lack of activity
Unfortunately, this problem is becoming more widespread. Diagnosed joint discomfort has increased 38% in dogs since 2007, according to one national study. And, vet-prescribed drugs for joint discomfort should be used only as a last resort, because they merely mask symptoms instead of actually fixing the problem.
The good news is…
New Natural Solutions Can Help Keep Your Pets Healthy and Active for Years
I’m Joshua Corn, and that’s me with Charlie, the “big fella” who accompanies me to the office nearly every day. He’s a rescue dog who has blessed us with his presence in our home. My wife, two sons and I consider him a member of our family, just as I’m sure you view your own beloved pets.
We want Charlie to stay healthy for years to come, because nothing warms our hearts like his unconditional love and loyalty. The last thing we want to see is for Charlie to suffer needlessly as he gets older or, even worse, die before his time.
As Editor-in-Chief of Live in the Now, one of America’s fastest-growing newsletters dedicated to natural health solutions, I research the amazing benefits of advanced nutritional supplements every day, and I share the good news with my readers.
And guess what…
The Right Nutrients Can Work Wonders for Dogs
The more I have learned about pet nutrition, the more I have discovered that extra support is as beneficial for them as it is for us, particularly in the area of joint health. In fact, for a big dog like our Charlie, additional help may be absolutely essential to fight off the joint problems that so often come with age.
Most people think that large breed dogs are the only pets susceptible to joint issues, but this is simply not true. The fact is almost any type of dog can develop painful joints as they age, especially if they’re overweight. Even mild obesity is a big risk factor for joint issues, and our pet population is growing heavier and heavier — just like our human population.
Overall it’s important to remember that it’s never too early to start caring for your pet’s joints. Dogs of all weights and all ages can significantly benefit from extra, targeted nutrition for healthy joints.
So What Can You Do to Prevent or Relieve Joint Problems?
In a moment, I’ll tell you about two breakthrough nutrients that can have a dramatic impact on joint health for dogs of any age. My friend Dr. Katy Nelson, who was recently named one of America’s top veterinarians, introduced me to these two nutrients, and the more I’ve researched them, the more I’ve realized how superior they are to the standard (and often ineffective) glucosamine supplements most people give to their pets.
But first, let me explain what you’re up against when it comes to supporting your pet’s lifelong joint health and comfort.
Owner Alert #1: Pet Food That Falls Short on Joint-Supporting Nutrition
Experts agree that good nutrition helps prevent the onset of joint problems as your pet ages. But far too often, pet food labeled as “balanced nutrition” turns out to be “barely adequate nutrition” instead. Dogs are carnivores, so good nutrition for them means protein, and plenty of it. The first several ingredients listed on the label should be meat — not grains, soy or other fillers that can ruin your pet’s health over time.
What’s more, many pet food manufacturers import ingredients from China — more than 85 million pounds a year and growing. You probably remember the pet-food recall a few years back when tainted gluten from China led to thousands of pet deaths. As a result, I advise my readers to purchase natural, grain-free pet food that’s made in the USA and to examine the list of ingredients carefully.
Owner Alert #2: Dog Treats and Supplements That Can Turn Deadly
This tainted Chinese gluten disaster should’ve been a wake-up call for all pet food manufacturers, but it wasn’t. Too many still don’t properly test their ingredients, which recently caused another tragic scandal.
This time it involved poisoned jerky treats for dogs, some of which were marketed as joint health boosters, with “glucosamine and chondroitin” featured prominently on their labels. As a result, thousands of dog owners thought they were “doing good” for their pet only to find out otherwise, with tragic consequences. According to the FDA, these contaminated treats have killed over 1,000 dogs and made more than 5,800 seriously ill.[3,4]
Contamination aside, many of these products contain only a fraction of the ingredients like glucosamine and chondroitin they say they do… if any at all. The solution is simple: I recommend that you don’t buy any dog treat that isn’t manufactured in the USA by a high-quality and trusted brand.
Owner Alert #3: Pain Relievers Like Rimadyl Are Not a Long-Term Solution
If you take your pet to the veterinarian with any pain-related issues, you’re likely to get a prescription for the pain-killing drug Rimadyl or a similar medication. While these drugs can have some positive immediate benefits, it’s important to remember that, as with all prescription drugs, they come with a long list of side effects.
In fact, according to the FDA’s own records, almost 19,000 dogs have had bad reactions to Rimadyl and, sadly, over 3,000 have died. I advise all of my readers to thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits associated with drugs such as Rimadyl with your vet before giving them to your pet.
Like I said, pain relievers can provide much needed relief to your pet in acute situations. However, their mechanism of action involves merely masking symptoms. They don’t do anything to fix the problem, nor are they a preventative measure by any means. That’s why it’s important to take a proactive approach to caring for your pet’s joints.
Is There a Safe, Natural Joint Health Solution for Pets?
Clearly, a safe alternative for joint discomfort is as important to your pet as it is to you. That’s why I’m happy to say cutting-edge science has proven that there are now safe, effective options that can ease joint discomfort in your pet, or help prevent joint problems from developing in the first place.
In addition to my work with Live in the Now, I’m also CEO of Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium-quality supplements for over 20 years. When I began researching joint health solutions for my dog Charlie, I reached out to my friend Dr. Katy Nelson for expert medical advice.
You may have seen Dr. Nelson on the Today show, Fox & Friends or The Meredith Vieira Show, or heard her on SiriusXM radio. She is a veterinarian at the Belle Haven Animal Medical Centre in Alexandria, VA, as well as the host and producer of The Pet Show with Dr. Katy on Washington DC’s News Channel 8.
Dr. Nelson is also a founding partner of PetsMove.org, a national health and fitness initiative aimed at getting people healthy alongside their dogs. Oh yeah, she’s also a busy mom with two young children and two adorable dogs of her own!
How Purified Omega-7s Are Revolutionizing Pet Health
When Dr. Nelson first told me about her experiences with omega-7s in helping to reduce and even eliminate joint discomfort in dogs and cats, I was very intrigued. When she showed me the scientific research backing up her clinical experiences, I was amazed. Yet using omega-7s to help pets is so new that only cutting-edge vets know about this.
That’s why I’m excited to share this breakthrough with you today. If you have a dog that is suffering from joint discomfort, this is the safe and natural solution you’ve been looking for. Let me explain.
Like the better-known omega-3 fatty acids, omega-7s are found in cold-water ocean fish, so they too are an entirely natural part of the food chain. However, a new, highly purified omega-7 extract offers a powerful, innovative way to improve your pet’s joint comfort and flexibility — safely and quickly. It has been clinically shown to be even more powerful than omega-3s in reducing levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), the most reliable marker of body-wide inflammation.
As you probably know, maintaining a healthy inflammatory response is a major step in easing discomfort and protecting joints and cartilage from damage. According to Dr. Nelson, this new omega-7 healing agent does the job better than any other single nutrient she has ever seen.
Why have omega-7s flown under the radar all these years? Because researchers have only recently determined how to unlock their potent joint-soothing powers. Typically, foods that naturally contain the omega-7 fatty acid palmitoleic acid also contain another omega-7, called palmitic acid. While palmitoleic acid powerfully promotes a healthy inflammatory response, palmitic acid is not so desirable. It is a pro-inflammatory agent that offsets the beneficial effects of palmitoleic acid and robs omega-7-containing foods of their anti-inflammatory benefits.
Experts Are Calling This an Inflammation-Fighting Breakthrough
Only recently have scientists developed a process of extracting omega-7s from fish oil that virtually eliminates the undesirable palmitic acid while maintaining palmitoleic acid at full strength. In this breakthrough purified omega-7 extract, which has been named Provinal® by the scientists who developed it, palmitoleic acid outweighs the palmitic acid by an incredible 50 to 1. The result is a breakthrough inflammation fighter for both humans and pets alike.
In clinical research carried out at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, Provinal® Omega-7 produced a remarkable 50% reduction in the CRP inflammation marker. That means it can douse inflammation discomfort like a fire hose on a blaze, and that can help your dog stay active, playful and healthy for a long time to come.
And with Provinal® Omega-7 you don’t have to worry about mercury or other toxins sometimes associated with fish oil products. Provinal® Omega-7 is extracted from anchovies, a fish with such a low concentration of mercury according to the FDA that it is widely considered safe to consume by pregnant women.[8,9] In addition, Provinal® Omega-7 is subjected to a state-of-the-art purification process as well as rigorous safety testing.
According to Dr. Nelson, Provinal® is the only type of omega-7 she recommends, and the only one proven by gold-standard scientific research to safely and rapidly relieve your pet’s joint discomfort.
Now let me tell you about a second nutrient recommended by Dr. Nelson that will help your pets enjoy easier, more comfortable movement because it actually improves the lubrication in their joints.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) — Nature’s Ultimate Joint Lubricant
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is what makes cartilage such a friction-free substance. It keeps cartilage firm and supple, instead of dried-up and brittle, so that weight-bearing joints can absorb the stresses of daily use. HA is also a major component of synovial fluid, the viscous liquid inside your joints that lubricates every moving part of the joint.
One reason that aging joints become so uncomfortable is that they lose synovial fluid. You can think of synovial fluid as the joint equivalent of the motor oil in your car. As this oil breaks down over time due to wear and tear, it needs to be replaced to keep your engine running smoothly. The problem is, as pets age, their ability to produce HA drops significantly, which in turn affects their levels of synovial fluid.
So, as you can imagine, any drop-off in hyaluronic acid can become a big issue for joints. When cartilage and synovial fluid soak up all the HA they need, your dog will enjoy improved cushioning and lubrication. It’s as simple as that, and it really works. And the best way to replace the missing lubrication that HA provides is with a natural supplement.
With its ability to support both cartilage and synovial fluid, hyaluronic acid helps your pet’s knees, hips, shoulders, and ankles absorb the stresses of daily life. It works safely and naturally to promote comfort and flexibility in all activities — whether it’s jumping into the car, playing in the park, climbing stairs, leaping onto your lap or just taking a walk with you around the block.
When You Combine Provinal® with Hyaluronic Acid, You Get Unmatched Benefits for Your Pets
Provinal® is such a new, cutting-edge ingredient it’s difficult to find a pet supplement on the market that contains it. And we couldn’t find any pet supplement that includes both of the two top joint-soothing nutrients that Dr. Nelson recommends: Provinal® Omega-7 and hyaluronic acid.
So Dr. Nelson and I went to work. We developed a 100% natural daily treat for dogs that delivers an optimal blend of these two nutrients — and it’s a healthy, safe, effective and affordable way to give your pets the joint support they need.
It’s called Charlie’s Choice™ ProJoint PLUS™. Each delicious chewy treat includes a clinical dose of 105 mg of Provinal® Omega-7 plus a potent 15 mg dose of hyaluronic acid (HA), standardized to the highest level of 90% purity. This is far superior to the 12% pure HA found in most supplements, even those for humans. So you can give it to your pets with total confidence in its safety and effectiveness.
You may have given a glucosamine-chondroitin supplement to your pet before and not noticed any results. This doesn’t surprise me as many of these supplements don’t have the “right stuff” to make them effective for your pet. ProJoint PLUS, on the other hand, has been formulated to be far more beneficial for your pet than any glucosamine-chondroitin supplement on the market.
Why ProJoint PLUS Is the Very Best Vet-Approved Choice
Here’s what makes ProJoint PLUS the very best vet-approved choice:
Made with Human-Grade Ingredients: ProJoint PLUS is made to the same specifications as human supplements and human pharmaceutical drugs, and is produced in a state-of-the-art FDA-inspected facility. You simply won’t find a higher quality pet supplement in the world. It has no artificial ingredients or unnecessary fillers.
No Side Effects or Interactions: Unlike prescription pain drugs that can result in serious gastrointestinal and liver damage to your dog or cat as well as other unwanted side effects, ProJoint PLUS is safe, 100% natural, and features premium, non-toxic nutrients that can be taken on a daily basis to promote a healthy inflammatory response and improve joint comfort.
Scientifically Formulated by a Vet, with an Optimal Daily Serving Size: Many other pet supplement makers cut corners, but we provide vet-recommended amounts of Provinal® and highly absorbable, 90% pure hyaluronic acid because we want you and your pets to enjoy each other’s company for a long, long time. It’s also convenient because just one small chew per day (which is about the size of a blueberry) is suitable for most dogs. And it’s so delicious, your pet will gobble it up without hesitation.
Amazingly Affordable Price: ProJoint PLUS costs as low as $14.95 per bottle, which is lower than many discount, low-quality brands of ineffective glucosamine supplements. Plus, it ships to you free. Each bottle contains a one-month supply for most dogs. This is an extraordinary value!
365-Day Guarantee of Satisfaction: Dr. Nelson and I are sure that ProJoint PLUS will help your pets feel the best they have in years, just like it is doing for my dog Charlie, Dr. Nelson’s two dogs and so many of her patients’ pets. So I’m happy to back it with our “any reason” 365-day guarantee. That’s right, use it for a full year, and I’ll gladly provide a full refund if you don’t see for yourself the difference it is making for your pet.
And, ProJoint PLUS can provide another big benefit for their health and longevity, because…
It Promotes Cardiovascular Health, Too
Heart health is another concern with many dogs and cats, and it can be almost impossible to detect with the naked eye. What’s more, diagnosing and treating a heart problem in your pet can require costly X-rays, ECGs or ultrasound tests, followed by expensive long-term treatment. It’s no walk in the park for your dog or cat, either. Heart problems are costly and life-threatening, and ProJoint PLUS will do its part to help your pet avoid them.
You see, dangerous inflammatory markers contribute to heart issues in pets as well as in humans. That’s where Provinal® goes the extra mile for your pet. A healthy inflammatory response means healthier joints and a healthier cardiovascular system, so you can tackle two big worries with a single solution. The very same studies that have shown Provinal® lowers levels of inflammatory markers also show that it supports healthy cholesterol balance.[7,8]
And promising research continues to emerge showing omega-7’s potential benefits for heart health. In a 12-week study conducted at the Cleveland Clinic, researchers found that levels of HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind) were 75% higher in mice whose diets were supplemented with omega-7. The mice given omega-7 also had visibly healthier arteries at the end of the study than the other group. Just think what the implication of these findings could be for the heart health of your dog!
Vet-Approved Nutritional Support Like This Can Help You Avoid Big Vet Bills Down the Road
There’s no mistaking the increased activity levels and greater comfort and flexibility that you’ll see in your dog if you decide to give ProJoint PLUS a try. Nonetheless, I urge you to do your own research on pet supplements before you decide. Here’s a quick buyer’s guide so you know what to look for to ensure you’re keeping your pet out of harm’s way:
Is it made under strict manufacturing standards? Many experts urge pet owners to avoid all treats or supplements made in China, and that makes up a major portion of what’s on shelves today. Some of these treats have turned out to be dangerous and even deadly, so be careful.
Does it provide human-grade nutrients? The market is flooded with low-grade nutrients that won’t provide optimal results, if any at all. The Provinal® Omega-7 and 90% pure hyaluronic acid in ProJoint PLUS are human-grade nutrients that will ease joint aches and pains for your pet.
Do ingredient quantities measure up? Pet treats and supplements are largely unregulated, so anything goes. Typical treats may provide only a fraction of the ingredients needed to provide genuine help. In order to get the benefits proven by science, you need to use the same amounts used in the research studies. This is just common sense. It pays to compare their serving size with the vet-recommended levels found in ProJoint PLUS.
Does it guarantee results? Typical supplements may offer a 30-day “satisfaction guarantee,” but few products will promise results for your pets like we do. ProJoint PLUS is guaranteed for a full year because we’re convinced that you’ll love this formula and the clearly visible benefits it provides. That’s right, up to one full year after purchase, and even if every last chewy treat is gone, you can still get 100% of your money back. It ships for free and is tax free so there is truly no risk.
You’ll See the Difference Very Quickly
With this fast-absorbing formula for inflammation control and joint-lubricating comfort, your pet could begin experiencing the benefits almost immediately. You can quickly expect to see:
- More playfulness and eagerness to engage in activity
- Greater ability to jump up, run around and play
- Less stiffness or difficulty getting up and down stairs
- More enthusiasm to leap into the car or onto your lap
- More tail wagging, purring and other signs of contentment
- Better overall cardiovascular health and balanced cholesterol
If you have read this far, then you certainly take your pets’ health seriously, and you want to do everything you can to help them enjoy a long, healthy and active life. And you never want to see them struggling with joint discomfort.
And while joint problems are more common in dogs, ProJoint PLUS works great for cats’ issues as well.
