Did you know?
- Exercise helps improve and increase your dog's joints health, flexibility, endurance and also helps strengthens muscles around your dog's joints.
- Healthy joints have cartilage that cushions and protects the portions of bone within a joint.
- Obesity is reported to be the most common nutritional disorder in dogs. In fact, approximately 55%* of dogs weigh too much – a known cause of reduced mobility.
- 15% of dog owners don’t exercise with their pets.
In addition to helping your dog's joint health, exercising your pet can also lead to a stronger heart, lower blood pressure, more energy and denser bones — not to mention it can lower your dog's risk of depression (yep, dogs get sad, too). Exercise is a great first step, but there are other ways to help keep your dog's joints healthy. Treat her with GREENIES® JointCare Canine Treats
