Pet Product Review – INhancer Hip & Joint Supplement Treats for dogs
Nutritional supplements are a staple in our house: Joey, our 12 year old Lab, needs glucosamine supplements to relieve pain and rebuild his joints damaged by arthritis; Shakespeare, our 18 month old Great Dane, must have glucosamine daily to ward off hip dysplasia, a hereditary condition common to Danes.
AIC INovators,Inc. has been in business for more than 25 years, specializing in nutritional supplements for both dogs and cats. What caught my eye is the form their supplements come in; semi-soft nuggets, which in dog-language translates to ‘treats!’ A welcome alternative to the mess and inconvenience of grinding-up glucosamine tablets to sprinkle on their kibble.
The dogs love them! The INhancer Hip & Joint Formula – Blue Label supplements we sampled include chicken liver as an ingredient, a flavor the hounds find quite enticing. And, to accommodate dogs with food allergies or sensitive stomachs, the Blue Label formula contains no corn or wheat. Each nugget contains approximately 100mg of glucosamine and 32 mg of chondroitin and the instructions advise you give your dog 1 nugget daily for every 10 pounds of his or her weight.
