Inspired by our first Rottweiler named Boulder. He was a big Rottie who started developing hip and elbow issues around 8 years old.

These treats are baked low and slow at 225 degrees to preserve the integrity of our ingredients and supplements for the well-being of your beloved dog.
Glucosamine hydrochloride is an amino sugar, but it’s not involved in the glucose pathway. It’s a building block of the cartilage matrix and stimulates growth of cartilage cells.
Does it work? A randomized, double-blind, positive-controlled, multicenter trial assessed 35 dogs with confirmed osteoarthritis of the hip or elbow for their response to orally administered glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate. Carprofen was used as the control. Although onset of efficacy was slower than carprofen, dogs treated with glucosamine-chondroitin showed statistically significant improvements in pain scores, severity and weightbearing by day 70.
Chondroitin sulfate works by inhibiting cartilage-destroying enzymes. When given with glucosamine, chondroitin has a synergistic effect and has been shown to lessen inflammation if given before a joint injury in dogs, Dr. Brunke says.
Boswellia resin has been evaluated in 24 dogs in an open multi-center study. Improvement in clinical signs, lameness, and pain was found in 17 of 24 dogs.
A six-week long study involving 45 dogs found that the modern stabilized and freeze-dried GLM is more effective than the placebo in treating chronic pain due to moderate to severe osteoarthritis and that it has no side-effects.
