Celadrin for Dogs

Celadrin helps cell membranes and lubricates joints to help restore their flexibility and elasticity. It acts as an antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties. Celadrin has several applications in human medicine, but proved very useful in veterinary medicine as well. In dogs, Celadrin is mainly used as a treatment for arthritis. It helps relief dogs of back, joint or ligament pain. It is also efficient in the treatment of injuries or stiff joints.

Celadrin is also efficient in treating arthritis because it lubricates the joins and restores the cell membranes.

How Celadrin Treats Arthritis in Dogs

Arthritis is a common disease affecting mainly older dogs. Arthritis is a degenerative disease caused by joint degeneration due mainly to improper lubrication and insufficient membrane fluidity. Traditional treatments for arthritis in dogs include anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS or acetaminophen). These drugs can have serious side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting or gastric ulcers.

Studies have shown that celadrin and glucosamine make a very efficient remedy for arthritis (osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis). Celadrin reduces the inflammation in the joints while glucosamine restores the damaged cartilage. Celadrin prevents the inflammation of the endothelial cells. It also controls the production of immune factors involved in the inflammatory response of the body. Celadrin restores joint flexibility due to its lubricating properties and allows the cell membranes to recover by providing the necessary lipids.

Celadrin in conjunction with glucosamine are used to:

  • Alleviate inflammation
  • Build new cartilage
  • Restore the functionality of the joints
  • Relief the joints from pain

Studies showed that the condition of the dogs with arthritis improved within 30 days after starting the Celadrin treatment. The dogs under this type of treatment become more active, move faster and are able to climb stairs.
