Goodness for Golden Oldies

No matter what stage in our lives, we all know the importance of looking after our bodies. From caring for teeth to keeping our joints healthy, ensuring we stay in tip top shape can lead to longer and much happier lives. As we all grow older and joints and muscles show signs of ageing, many of us begin increasing those vital vitamins and minerals to ensure our bodies keep on keeping on each and every day. 

Just like us, our pet’s bodies age and as they get older, our dogs show signs that they aren’t as young as they used to be. From aching muscles to painful joints, supplementing our dog’s diets with a little extra TLC can really make the difference and improve both the health and wellbeing of our golden oldies. From pawfect paste to our tasty range, our products can provide everything you to need to keep your older dogs tails wagging all day long.

Joy for Joints

Here at Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we stand by the power of supplementing our pet’s diets with a little extra nutrition now and again. From glucosamine to turmeric, our supplements are created to keep your older dog’s bodies in tip top shape, keeping arthritis at bay and their joints moving so they can enjoy staying active without feeling aches or pains. 

Golden Paste

With many herbalists highlighting the wondrous effects of turmeric for our health, it’s no wonder The Golden Paste Company ventured out of human supplements and created a great product for dogs too! 

With notable benefits for improving joint aches and pains, this complimentary dog food can be given to all those furry friends out there who are in need of a little extra love and care. Containing ingredients such as coconut oil and turmeric serving as a natural anti-inflammatory and detoxifier, this incredible paste can be added to your pet’s food or given orally alone to help combat those ageing aches. 

Begin by feeding an eighth of a teaspoon twice a day for the first week with food. The following week increase the quantity and feed one quarter of a teaspoon twice a day with food. Each week you can increase until desired effects are noticed.

Dorwest Glucosamine & Chondroitin Tablets

Created with maintaining joint flexibility and mobility in mind, Dorwest supplements use the most concentrated and easy to absorb form of high grade glucosamine hydrochloride, which provides the best possible joint care for our furry friends. It works by developing a dog’s building blocks to manufacture collagen and proteoglycans in the joint cartilage and the synovial membrane which produces the fluid lubricating the joints – keeping them happily playing fetch each and every day. 

With a combination of sustainably sourced Chondroitin and Glucosamine, this oral supplement helps to maintain flexibility and mobility, meaning you get a natural product with a tonne of health benefits.
