Joint and Muscle Support
Natural Dog & Cat Arthritis Medication - Canine and Feline Hip, Knee and Joint Herbal Treatment
What are the symptoms of muscle and joint conditions?
There are a number of reasons why your pet could develop joint or muscle problems. Sprains and strains are fairly common in many active animals and certain animals may be more prone to this than others.
Cats especially may have nine lives but their constant leaping from roofs and trees can put stress and strain on their joints, especially if they are overweight.
There are also a certain number of medical conditions such as arthritis (an inflammation of the joints which is most common in older pets, especially dogs); spinal diseases such as spondylosis and spondylitis (also more common in older pets and particular in dogs) and hip dysplasia (a malformation of the hipís ball and socket which is more common in dogs but may affect certain breeds of cats).
Certain breeds of dogs and cats may be genetically more prone to developing conditions such as hip dysplasia and spinal problems.
For many conditions, conventional treatment is largely symptomatic, aimed primarily at reducing pain and inflammation and keeping the animal as comfortable as possible.
Splinting, casting or surgery may be also be necessary. While prescription anti-inflammatory medication may help to ease the pain, it can also play havoc with your pet's stomach lining, sometimes leading to ulcers and digestive problems with chronic use.
Prescription medication may ease the pain and inflammation, but would have little healing effect.
How can natural remedies help?
Nutrition is a key element in the treatment and prevention of many muscle and joint problems.
As part of a holistic approach to treating your pet, natural remedies can help to build and strengthen your petís immune system, encourage the elimination of toxins, strengthen and protect his skeletal system and generally improve the overall health of your animal Ė in addition to alleviating and treating the specific problems associated with muscle and joint problems.
Other components of a holistic approach to therapy, especially in relation to alleviating and treating the symptoms associated with muscle and joint problems, include aromatherapy, acupuncture and chiropractic.
PetAlive Muscle and Joint Support contains the following herbal, homeopathic and nutritional ingredients.
(Contains no gluten, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives)
Harpagophytum procumbens (Devil's Claw): is found in the Kalahari Desert and is exclusive to Africa. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, Devil's Claw is used world-wide for osteo-arthritis, fibrositis, rheumatism, small joint disease and lower backache. Scientific research in the West has confirmed the anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic properties of this medicinal herb. Research has demonstrated that consistent use of Devil's Claw for at least 6 weeks can significantly improve the movement of arthritic joints and reduce swelling. It is also well known as a digestive tonic and is beneficial in the treatment of liver and gall bladder disorders.
Arthrospira platenis (Spirulina): is a single celled micro-organism found in the sea and is widely used as a source of chlorophyll. Widely used for its nutritive properties, Spirulina contains high concentrations of protein, vitamins (including B12 and folic acid) and carotenoids. This sea algae has been medicinally used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years as a tonic to boost energy, relieve arthritis, enhance liver functioning, improve resistance to disease and all around systemic health.
Calcium Fluoride (6cH) (Calc. Flour.): is a biochemic tissue salt which helps to strengthen, tone and restore elasticity to all cells and body tissues. It can help to restore tone and elasticity to muscles and tendons and improve ease of movement in the body. Calc. Flour. is also useful in the treatment of bladder problems and enlarged prostate glands.
Natrium Phosphoricum (6cH) (Nat. Phos.): acts as a biochemical antacid, acid neutralizer and PH balancer. By helping to control acidity in the system, Nat. Phos. is invaluable in the treatment of all inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism and joint stiffness. Regular use will help to improve mobility and reduce the pain.
Natrium Sulphate (6cH) (Nat. Sulph.) : is a biochemic tissue salt also known as the 'cell cleanser' and also helps to regulate and balance all body fluids. It is invaluable for a range of conditions, and helps to promote the health of the liver, pancreas, urinary tract system, respiratory system and digestive system. Nat. Sulph is also particularly useful in all bone related complaints, also helping to ease pain and stiffness associated with old injuries.
Lecithin: This is a fatty substance found in different foods including liver, eggs and wheat germ and is essential for many body functions, helping to build strong and healthy cell membranes and maintain optimum liver functioning.
Glucosamine Sulphate: is a crucial element in the building and maintenance of healthy cartilage, which provides 'cushioning' at the end of the bones and between joints. Due to promising results in a number of clinical trials, this nutritional substance has been approved for the treatment of arthritis in more than 70 countries. Regular use has been shown to ease pain and inflammation, increase mobility and assist in the repair of aging and damaged joints and the treatment of age-related degenerative joint disease. Studies have also demonstrated that this supplement is as effective in animals as it is in humans.

"I am happy to report that since taking your Muscle and Joint Support, our Great Dane is much more comfortable and is again starting to chase the cat! " - Nancy.
"We first noticed that our family dog was limping and favoring the right side last winter and since then she has also become very sensitive to being touched on the back. Our vet recommended your Joint Support Caps and we have seen a big change. She means so much to us and we are very grateful to PetAlive for this great product!" - Jeff R.
"Our old cat was really in pain with arthritis and is much better after using your product. We can pick her up and stroke her and she is less crabby which means she must be feeling comfortable again. Thank you very much for helping her" - Sheila.
PetAlive Muscle and Joint Support comes in convenient capsule form. Capsules may be swallowed whole by larger dogs. However, most owners find that it is easier and more convenient to open the capsule and mix the contents with wet food or a small treat.
This prevents stress to both pet and owner! Cats, especially, hate to have medicine forced down their throats and will happily eat the dried herb when it is mixed with a little fish or meat.
Caution: Safety during pregnancy and nursing has not been established. Do not use together with prescription anti-inflammatory medication.
Tip: Avoiding toxin and acid build up is essential in the ongoing treatment and prevention of all joint and muscle conditions.
How long will a bottle last?
Depending on the size of your pet, one bottle of Muscle and Joint Support capsules should last from 15 - 60 days.
A 45-90 day supply of 3 bottles is offered at a discount see the Buy 2 Get 1 FREE special below.
How long until we see results?
Results will vary depending on factors like diet, exercise as well as the health of your pet. With consistent use, you should be seeing improvement within 6 - 8 weeks, although some animals will respond sooner.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet (see below) will further enhance your pet's health, as well as the effectiveness of PetAlive Muscle and Joint Support.
What else can help?
Our pets are exposed to a variety of toxins on a daily basis. These can weaken their immune systems and damage the bodyís natural ability to fight off disease. Eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed (preferably organic) food and avoiding exposure to common everyday toxins will help to keep your pet healthy. Also remember:
