PSCPets Hip and Joint Plus contains a powerful blend of ingredients that have been proven to help support healthy bones, joints, and surrounding tissues. It contains glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, perna mussel, MSM, manganese, Vitamins C and E, and ginseng. This formula also includes four species of naturally occurring, live bacteria.
Glucosamine is a natural supplement that may help treat arthritis and prevent cartilage degeneration. It is easily absorbed and may also stimulate the production of substances that help maintain the health and resiliency of joints and their connective tissues. Glucosamine is used in the body to create the cushion that surrounds joints, so taking glucosamine as a supplement might help supply the materials needed to rebuild it for treatment of osteoarthritis, a condition where the cushion that surrounds the joints becomes thinner and stiff. Oftentimes Chondroitin is given along with glucosamine because it may increase the efficacy of the glucosamine. Hip and Joint Plus also contains extract of Perna Mussel because it contains compounds, including additional glucosamine, that help maintain joint function and mobility. MSM helps to maintain synovial fluid that lubricates joints and also supports healthy connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons, and muscle.
Hip and Joints Plus was formulated to support the whole dog, and contains several extra ingredients that are beneficial for total health. Vitamin C is important for the healing of wounds and is also an antioxidant used in many metabolic reactions. Vitamin E, also an important antioxidant, is involved in immune function. Manganese is a necessary factor of many enzymes that are necessary in detoxification of damaging free radicals.
This supplement also helps to improve overall health by promoting the breakdown and assimilation of nutrients in the gut. Hip and Joints Plus contains four species of naturally occurring, live bacteria: Enterococcus faecium and Lactobacillus acidophilus, plantarum, and casei.`

The last time I purchased this I was able to get 2 bottles for $13.99 each. Now to get a discount I have to buy 3 bottles and they're $17.99 each! I like this product for my dog, but I'm not at all happy about this crazy price increase! I'll be looking for better pricing elsewhere if they don't go back down!
I'm so glad to have found this products. It's so much easier to give my chocolate lab one tablet; as compared to sprinkling a probiotic powder on his food, while hiding a glucosamine pill in cheese. He eats these just like a treat! Although, after he eats one, he makes funny licking motions and sounds for a few seconds... I'm guessing there's an aftertaste... he still takes them from me without a problem though. The best part... he doesn't gas us out of the room anymore... not as often or as badly, at least. I'm off to buy another bottle!!!
Love this Product
My dog has always had digestive issues, possibly related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome or the like. Also I like to give my dogs joint support. This product is the only one of many I have tried, which, with also controlling the fat in her diet, and providing a small amount of extra fiber, has controlled her condition. Diet alone has not worked, and she would have bouts of vomitting and then not eating. With this product, she does not have those bouts, eats regularly, and has not been sick. Thank you for Hip & Joint Plus with Probiotics!
great & dog loves too!
This product works & my dog loves it also! No snubbing his food as with liquids I've tried! Thank You Pets Plus!
