Arthritis is a painful condition that occurs when a dog’s cartilage—the tissue between bones that acts as a buffer to absorb shock—breaks down due to age or injury. This can cause stiffness and pain in your dog’s joints. 

Arthritic dogs need to stay active and maintain a healthy weight. Unfortunately, this can be difficult for them because of their limited mobility. 

In this article, we will explore available joint supplements that have been shown to help with arthritis in dogs.

Ingredients to Look Out For

Chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine, and collagen can provide a host of benefits for dogs with arthritis, including:

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Cartilage protection
  • Improved bone and joint health

We recommend that you consult with your veterinarian about what supplement and dosing amounts are best for your dog. Bring your dog in regularly for checkups so your vet can track the progress of the arthritis and provide effective treatment options.

Best Dog Treats for Dogs With Arthritis

Dealing with arthritis can be incredibly difficult for dogs. Below, we've listed the best treats that can help your dog live a happier and healthier life despite its condition.

1. Trachea

Beef Trachea Dog Chews have been used to treat various ailments in dogs, including joint pain and arthritis. Trachea is made of a cartilage called chondroitin sulfate. Dogs can benefit from this supplement as it protects their joints from chronic damage. 

The ideal serving for each dog will vary depending on its age and size. The recommended amount based on your dog’s weight is printed on the product packaging.

Natural Farm Beef Trachea Dog Chews are chock-full of all-natural nutrients. Our products are as pure as possible, so owners won't have to worry about additives and preservatives in our treats!

2. Gullet Sticks

Natural Farm Gullet Sticks are an excellent option if you want to introduce your pet to a unique flavor profile. They're softer than bully sticks, making them ideal for senior dogs or young pups that cannot handle hard treats.

Like Trachea chews, gullet sticks are naturally rich in chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine. Studies have shown that this particular cartilage product helps maintain joint health and may help reduce pain caused by arthritis.

Natural Farm Gullet Sticks are made with 100% grass-fed beef that's entirely free from chemicals. They're easily digestible, delicious treats for your dog.

3. Beef Jerky

Jerky is a tasty snack for humans that dogs love too. Natural Farm Beef Jerky is the perfect dog snack because it has been sliced from human-grade beef esophagus. It is very easy for dogs to chew on and makes for an excellent treat for active dogs.

Since they’re a bit tough, they’re a real treat for many dogs who love to chew things.

The meat used by Natural Farm Beef Jerky is loaded with nutrients. That means your dogs will have stronger muscles, healthier joints, and better overall health. Furthermore, Natural Farms Beef Jerky doesn't contain any additives, preservatives, or hormones—just the natural good stuff.

Packed with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine, these beef jerky sticks can help reduce inflammation and protect your dog's cartilage.

4. Collagen Sticks

Collagen is an essential protein found in dogs’ bones, cartilage, and connective tissue. It protects and supports these vital body parts by providing elasticity and cushioning.

Natural Farm Beef Skin Collagen Dog Sticks are made from 100% natural beef skin with no additives or preservatives. These sticks are odor-free and last around 20% longer than bully sticks of the same size. 

Collagen sticks provide your dog with a protein-rich snack that may help improve joint health and fight off arthritis pain.

Giving Back to Mother Nature

Making sure your dog has the best and healthiest treats is essential. And it's just as important to make sure you choose retailers with hearts in the right place. 

Natural Farm has partnered with One Tree Planted to give back to the environment for every item sold.

With each purchase, one tree is planted to help combat deforestation. So when you buy the best treats for your dog, you’re contributing to Mother Nature!
