Symptoms of Pain in Pets
Our pets have signs and symptoms of pain, but often this pain is unrecognized, undiagnosed, and not treated.
Some pets may be reluctant to move, to jump up, or have difficulty rising after lying down.
They may tremble, eat or drink less, be generally depressed, or be panting more.
More obvious signs of pain are obvious lameness, pain when touching a specific area of their body, increased heart rate and breathing, and vocalization.
Some pets have strictly behavioral changes, such as being more aggressive or not reacting to being petted and groomed.
Relieving Pain With Supplementation
Good joint health is crucial to your pet’s wellbeing. The ability to walk, run and jump represents a large part of your pet’s unique ability to express emotion. Unfortunately, aching and stiff joints are just as much a part of aging for cats and dogs as it is for humans. In fact, there are an estimated 68 million dogs experiencing hip and joint challenges – that’s nearly 60% of the canine population!
Most joint and arthritis supplements treat the joint as an isolated body part. To successfully relieve aches, pains, and stiffness and bring the body back into a healthy state, a supplement must take into account the needs of the whole body and address the other body parts that work with the joints: the connective tissue; bones; and synovial fluid which lubricates the joints. Agility Supplement does this, and this is what makes Agility so effective.
Our Personal Experience with Agility Supplement
One of our German Shorthaired Pointers had an ineffective knee surgery that left him with debilitating arthritis. He could barely stand and was in much pain. We tried many types of supplements, plus he was given the prescription medication, Rimadyl, which was causing his liver count to increase to a dangerous level. A friend recommended the Agility Supplement, and after about 3-1/2 weeks of taking the Agility, he was moving freely again, actually able to run again and chase rabbits and birds. We were amazed at how well the Agility worked, especially after having tried so many other things. And we were able to take wean him off of the Rimadyl (by slowly decreasing the amount over a 4 week period).
What do the Agility ingredients do?
Agility supplement features Glucosamine, MSM, sea mussels and hyaluronic acid. Agility Formula is a natural, holistic, multi-action joint support formula containing scientifically-tested ingredients.
Glucosamine helps maintain and promote joint and connective tissue health. It hydrates and lubricates your pet’s joints. The added hydration and lubrication will help to prevent arthritis in your dog or cat and help to ensure your pet’s joints work at their optimum ability.
It has been shown to be essential in the healthy development and ongoing maintenance of connective tissue and synovial fluid. Research studies indicate that Glucosamine supports healthy joint flexibility, mobility and lubrication. It helps to rebuild the cartilage and delay further cartilage breakdown. It also appears to have some anti-inflammatory properties.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a natural source of organic sulfur that is found naturally in some raw fruits and vengetables.. Sulfer allows cartilage to rebuild, so it is vital to the maintenance of healthy joints, bones, ligaments and tendons. MSM is essential for normal cell function, and it decreases inflammation and pain and acts as an antioxidant. There is also evidence suggesting that it increases the effectiveness of glucosamine.
Sea mussels also contain Chondroitin Sulfate, which works in tandem with Glucosamine. And hyaluronic acid helps to keep cartilage strong and flexible to better cushion joints.
Boswellia supports many parts of the body including bone, lung and liver. Many holistic doctors agree that a healthy liver is paramount in supporting the health of any portion of the body, including the joints. Its frame for joint support is probably through its enhancement of blood flow to the joints and its remarkable ability to soothe.
Alfalfa is a grass rich in minerals and antioxidants, used by herbalists for generations for bone support.
Green Lipped Muscles, also known as edible shellfish, have many of the nutrients that bone and support tissue needs. It is a whole food that contains protein, fats, vitamins, minerals and chondroitin sulfate. It was selected as an ingredient for the Agility supplement because all of its components work together to support the joints. Some of these components are able to provide some of the nutrients the added glucosamine requires for optimum utilization.
These nutrients work synergistically with the other ingredients in Agility (vitamins E and C, chondroitin sulfate, manganese and boron) to supply your companion animal with a comprehensive formula to help maintain the health of the entire musculoskeletal system.
And last but not least, this holistic formula has a delicious meat flavor that pets love! Join thousands of satisfied customers, and help your dog or cat to live a healthier and happier life with Agility Formula.
