Recently, we heard from a pet parent with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel #GlydeDog. Thankfully, they found Glyde® Mobility Chews when their sweet fur-baby was having joint pain. While most people think of arthritis in dogs as a big-dog issue, it can happen to any sized dogs. Our Cocker Spaniel feature this month showed how this breed is at a medium-risk for arthritis. While most of the toy dog breeds are at low risk, it does not mean they are at no risk for arthritis.
Here is what Lisa said about her #GlydeDog Poppy, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel:
“I have a 10-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel who gets very stiff and sore in the mornings. Since we started using Glyde, she has been in less pain and has been a lot happier.”
— Lisa, Poppy's fur-mum.
What is the difference in Glyde?
We hear what Lisa said often from our customers with all sizes of dogs, but including smaller-sized dogs who needed Glyde Mobility Chews. Some have tried other nutraceuticals, some have not. When you discover how the key ingredients in Glyde helps dog’s joints stay healthy and active, it is clear there is only one choice for your dog. Glyde is the only APVMA registered nutraceutical with proven levels of three key components to relieve the painful signs of arthritis. These proven ingredients are:
- New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (GLM): A powerful anti-inflammatory, the GLM is a nutrient-rich source of contain complex proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, glycosaminoglycans and essential fatty acids such as OMEGA-3.
- Glucosamine: Reduces cartilage degradation, is found in most joint supplements but our levels are higher than most.
- Chondroitin Sulfate: Helps rebuild cartilage, and also has high levels to boost the power.
What is the difference in Spaniels?
What is the difference between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel? They are both in the spaniel group, both have medium-length coats and both are both make very good family dogs. Their main difference is primarily in size. While a Cocker Spaniel is larger and in the sporting group, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is smaller, lighter breed and a member of the Toy group of dogs.
Here are their popularity rankings, according to the AKC, out of the 197 registered dog breeds:
- The American Cocker Spaniel ranks #30
- The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel ranks at #18
- The English Cocker Spaniel ranks #52
No matter the size or popularity of the dog, there are always chances they could be at risk for arthritis. The key is to monitor their activity level and take the dog arthritis quiz to see if your dog could use better joint health. The quiz is free, easy and only takes a few minutes!
We are so glad that Lisa and Poppy use Glyde and have had success!
