Shark cartilage for dogs is a SUPER food dog treat, NO FILLER.
Shark cartilage, more than a treat
If you want to give your dog an organic, low fat, low energy dog treat, that will clean their teeth and prevent lameness and future arthritis issues – then Shark cartilage is the only LOW-COST option.
For those I the know … Shark cartilage is a daily staple of their dogs’ diet – NOT a treat. So, lets look at why it is one of the most exceptional highest value treats available ANYWHERE.
NOTE we have THREE / FOUR (depending on availability) versions of shark cartilage for you
Shark Cartilage – Occupier and Teeth cleaning option
Let’s start with the basics and why shark cartilage is the go-to treat for ANY dog, regardless of if they have any medical conditions or not.
People often don’t like giving treats because they think that it will add weight to their dog, or they will have to give much less dog food. And if you give a regular treat in large quantities that is true.
The exceptional point about shark cartilage as a dog treat, is that because it is a cartilage and not a muscle meat or offal, it has very low kilojoules (or calories) per gram. Instead it is packed with active ingredients that are vital to the prevention of JOINT PAIN.
If you have a small dog, our regular shark cartilage packs mostly have smaller width sticks in them, that they can just gnaw on. Chew to their hearts content satisfying them while ALSO giving them a great dose of contrition and glucosamine – the two major active ingredients in any good joint support compound (dogs or humans).
If you have a medium or large dog with much higher chewing capacity, a lot of customer opt for the Shark Cartilage WIDE option that we provide.
Beside occupying your dog while not adding excessive energy levels, the treats are also cleaning their teeth and gums. They are doing this relatively gently without the fear that some people have in giving their dogs dog treat bones.
Shark Cartilage: NATURAL, Organic and ZERO CARBS
With everyone interested in removing additives and colourings anything ARTIFICIAL from their dog’s diet … this also fits the bill.
You will also notice that ANIMAL products have ZERO carbs (SUGAR). They get enough of that in their kibble anyway …
Shark cartilage was once considered as the waste product from gummy shark catches after the fillers were made for the human restaurant market. The shark cartilage comes from the fin of the shark, and unless used for dog treats would either be highly refined and sold at much higher amounts for human medicine or wasted.
This is a true SINGLE INGREDIENT dog treat, that is ORGANIC (the ocean not farmed) and as natural as they come.
Shark cartilage for dogs as a joint support compound
We have written several articles previously and included dog trails on shark cartilage to show how it is proven to prevent lameness and sure up the cartilage of the dogs own bones.
It can be used as a PREVENTION medicine as well as reducing the pain and walking issues in dogs that already have arthritis.
But why would you be interested in something that just helps rebuild the joint cartilage? Well because it does far more than that. Shark cartilage also has a part to play in increasing the viscosity of the fluid between the joints (preventing further wear). Yes, it literally is the miracle treat.
If a dog’s joint does fall prey to cartilage degradation, the dog will adjust its gait to compensate for the painful movement. They will not play as much; they will be irritable and even aggressive. Adapting their gate unnaturally will also potentially cause pain in their other legs and hips as their body compensates its movement to provide the least pain.
This means that whole body movement of your dog is adjusted and spirals out of control causing wear in other parts of their body. If you take too long to notice this, you can end up with a lot of wear and other complications than you ever dreamed possible.
THE More economical option
But why would you choose a natural compound when you can just buy a jar of highly refined product from the vet?
As the articles will explain in detail, there are around EIGHT active compounds found in shark cartilage that can assist in resolving dog joint issues. MOST vet products only filter and use TWO of these eight. The glucosamine and chondroitin.
BUT for all that refining (and removing or not caring about the other six chemicals that can be of benefit) you might be paying five times the price per gram. And that is ONLY for the powdered version, so there is no added value in teeth cleaning or occupying the dog at all. A wasted opportunity.
The OTHER dog arthritis reducing options
If your dog’s pain gets too much, some people will move over to giving Green Lipped mussels to boost their dogs joint support (and yes we also sell that here: GLM ). But in really bad cases they will finally end up with very costly monthly pharmaceutical injections at their vets.
What if regular use of shark cartilage could prevent your dogs joints getting to that point, or significantly (years) delay their pain?
A few years ago, my own dog Archie wonder spoodle starting gong lame on the walks. It was a process of over a few weeks that other people noticed this and told me. It was such a gradual process, but as you know, dogs don’t like to let on that they are in pain, they have a natural instinct to hide it so that they are not disadvantaged in the pack.
This is what prompted me to revisit the science papers on the use of shark cartilage with dogs. I had been told anecdotally by some vets about shark cartilage, but it wasn’t in their best interested from me to buy the natural product from elsewhere. I had to really have a deep need to do the research myself.
It took only a few weeks from giving a daily dosage of a few medium shark cartilage sticks to bring my dog back to completely pain free lame free walking. And at twelves years old, he is still going strong.
