Joint and Skin Support incorporates clinically proven dietary nutraceuticals that have been shown to promote healthy joints and connective tissue, and improve skin dryness: natural hydrolyzed collagen, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid. None of these ingredients would survive the high temperatures used to make kibble or canned food. Since our food is lightly cooked, then frozen, we can incorporate these ingredient safely after cooling our food, and before freezing. This recipe is formulated to effectively target many aspects of joint health, including the health of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluid. It is a pork and quinoa based, novel protein, low residue, select ingredient diet formulated to meet the key nutritional factors for the nutritional management of Joint Disease, Atopic Dermatitis, Pruritus, Chronic Gastroenteritis, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease in dogs.

Joint and Skin Ingredient

Pork Tenderloin

USDA Certified Pork Tenderloin is a high quality, complete and lean novel protein. It is loaded with many essential vitamins (thiamin, niacin, B6, Riboflavin and B12) and minerals (phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, calcium, iron and manganese). 

Quinoa

Quinoa, also known as the ancient grain, is actually more of a legume. It is a seed related to beets, chard and spinach, which contains many powerful anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. It is high in protein, fiber, magnesium, folate, phosphorus and manganese.

Kale

Kale is high in antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta-carotene and manganese. It contains anti-inflammatory phytonutrients as well as vitamin K, which also is known to control the inflammatory process. It is high in vitamin A, manganese, copper, calcium, B6, potassium, iron, magnesium, omega 3 fatty acids, B2, B1folate, phosphorus and B3.

Carrots

Carrots  are full of antioxidant compounds and are one of the richest sources of the pro-vitamin A carotenes. The antioxidant compounds help to prevent inflammatory disease. In addition, carrots are a very good source of vitamins C and K, potassium and dietary fiber.

Fuji Apples

Fuji Apples  are palatable and high in antioxidants and fiber. Apples are always cored before including them in our recipes.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil consists of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which have been shown to help increase the liver’s efficiency at metabolizing energy and can promote weight loss in overweight dogs. Many dogs with osteoarthritis are overweight and need to come down to their ideal body condition scores. 

Hydrolyzed Collagen

Collagen is a complex structural protein mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone and skin. Hydrolyzed collagen is a highly bioavailable form of collagen made up of amino acids needed to form collagen. Human research on hydrolyzed collagen has shown favorable effects on joint mobility and skin dryness. 

Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate is considered a promising treatment for osteoarthritis in humans and dogs. Clinical trials in humans and some animals suggest that chondroitin may have significant effects on joint mobility and pain when compared to placebo. .

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural structural component of skin and connective tissue of animals and humans. The key to this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture within the joint. It’s considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural polymer, lubricating joints and providing comfort. 

Olive Oil

Olive Oil is high in essential fatty acids including linoleic and linolenic acids, which have been linked to reports of improvement in coat quality/sheen and anti-inflammatory properties. (National Research Council Ad Hoc Committee on Dog and Cat Nutrition, 2006). It is very low in pro-inflammatory Omega 6 fatty acids. 

Premium EPA/DHA

Icelandic Premium Fish Oil  is sourced direct from the world’s cleanest, purest, and greenest sources. This exclusive supplement is a pure, potent, natural and detoxified anti-inflammatory ingredient, and provides Omega 3 fatty acids in highly biologically available forms of EPA and DHA.
