WHEN TO USE:
KEY FUNCTIONAL COMPONENTS:
K9 Natu-Joint was formulated to maintain and support joint function, mobility and health. Using a combination of ingredients proven to play an important role in joint health, K9 Natu-Joint brings together in one product, a host of benefits typically found in multiple products.
K9 Natu-Joint is an all-natural product that uses only pharmaceutical-quality ingredients. In an industry filled with so-called joint products, it is vitally important to choose a company whose ingredients you can trust. With more than 30 years of experience in advancing animal health, TechMix has built a reputation with products you can trust. In addition, our unique liquid formula allows you to offer it to your dog with food, in water or as a treat. This makes it possible to give it to even the most finicky dog.
CANINE JOINT HEALTH
Every movement and activity your dog performs is possible due to the wonders and dynamics of the body’s joints. These joints are a combination of bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and joint fluid. The cartilage surface, and lubricating fluid in these joints, are the meeting points for this process, and if they are not maintained at an optimum level, the cascade of events that are set in motion can be devastating and can range from temporary pain and discomfort to a lifelong battle with arthritis that could eventually lead to immobility and, for some pets, an unacceptable quality of life.
The key to maintaining healthy joints is to provide your dog with the building blocks and components of the joints. K9 Natu-Joint contains a specially designed matrix of ingredients to address this issue from many angles.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – An exciting, newer component in the battle for healthy joints, HA is an important component of the thick liquid in the joint called synovial fluid. It plays a number of roles in the joint, such as acting as a buffer zone, providing support, hydration and nutrition, as well as playing an important role in inflammation.
Glucosamine – Our highly-purified source helps in maintaining healthy joints, as well as works to repair and renew damaged joints. Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, which are major components of cartilage, the tissue in joints between the bones. In addition it has an anti-inflammatory effect, which may help in controlling joint pain and inflammation.
Chondroitin – A naturally occurring molecule in the body much like glucosamine, it is an important component of cartilage and also has anti-inflammatory effects.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) – An important source of sulfur, it helps in reducing inflammation occurring in the joints and muscles.
Bromelain –An extract from the pineapple plant, bromelain has been shown to block the inflammatory process.
Ascorbic Acid – Also known more commonly as Vitamin C, ascorbic acid is a very potent antioxidant. The body is constantly in a cycle of damage and repair from day-to-day living. Antioxidants, such as ascorbic acid, serve as a “clean-up crew” to help prevent and repair this damage.
LIQUID FORM FOR INCREASED ABSORPTION
According to the Physician’s Desk Reference, “only 10-20% of vitamins and minerals in any pill form are absorbed by the human body.” In addition, for components like Hyaluronic Acid, the most effective form of the product is in a liquid. Combine these facts with the ease of administration and highly-palatable taste, and you have a joint supplement your dog will use and benefit from in one convenient form.

Q: What causes joint pain in dogs?
A: For many dogs, especially medium and large sporting dog breeds, joint inflammation and arthritis are commonly encountered as a dog ages. As a dog grows older, the cartilage and synovial fluid that provides joint fluidity and comfort wears down, causing pain and inflammation in the joint. The pain that a dog feels combined with the reduction in range of motion as joint inflammation sets in can cause a formerly active dog to not be able to be active as long or effectively as in previous years.
Q: How do I know if my dog has joint pain?
A: Dogs that have joint inflammation or arthritis are likely to show signs of joint pain in less dynamic movement, stiffness, a reluctance to exercise, difficulty after rising from rest, or an abnormal gait.
Q: Is joint pain in dogs more common in some breeds than others?
A: Joint pain and inflammation is most common in medium-large pure bred dogs such as German Shepherds, Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Rottweilers and Mastiffs. However, while certain breeds have an increased incidence of hereditary arthritis issues, every breed is susceptible when including environmental factors such as developmental nutrition, activity level and injuries.
