Chicken feet are abundant in naturally occurring glucosamine.
Glucosamine is a natural anti-inflammatory. This makes it a very popular supplement dogs/cats with joint pain or stiffness. It can help improve mobility and range of motion and help slow the ageing process in your dog’s joints.
Glucosamine is naturally produced within the joints, where it combines with collagen to produce and repair cartilage. Healthy cartilage is naturally flexible and spongy, so it acts as a shock absorber in the joints. Synovial fluid naturally lubricates the joints. Glucosamine can help maintain its viscous consistency.
With the ageing process, your dog’s body makes less glucosamine. This means their cartilage deteriorates causing less cushioning to the joints. There’s also less lubricating synovial fluid … which is why your dog’s joints might be getting a bit “creaky” as they age.
They make a delicious crunchy & chewy snack for dogs & puppies of all sizes. Some dogs like eating them still frozen. And don’t worry about the toenails – they’re safe to eat! Just don’t cook them.
They’re also great for making bone broth for senior dogs or dogs with joint issues. Just remove the cooked bones before feeding the broth.
How much glucosamine does a dog need?
Dogs need about 500mg of glucosamine per day per 10kg of body weight.
But don’t bother adding up the grams of glucosamine your dog gets through their food. Just feed some of these foods regularly and they’ll get plenty of natural glucosamine. Just one chicken foot contains approx. 400mg of glucosamine.
