What does Hyaluronic Acid do for my pet’s joints?
The HA in HyaFlex™ and the Complete Care tablets assists in improving joint movement and cushioning. If we compare the joints of your pet’s body to an automobile engine – the joint fluid in their body mimics the oil in a car engine. At regular intervals we replace the oil in our car engines because the heat and friction breaks down the oil’s viscosity. The oil becomes thinner and less able to protect the metal surfaces from excessive wear. HyaFlex™ acts the same way in our joints. As your pet ages, the viscosity of their joint fluid breaks down and becomes thin and is unable to cushion the joint cartilage. This leads to increased friction on the cartilage surfaces of their joints. Taking HyaFlex™ or Complete Care Tabs assists in maintaining the normal viscosity of the joint fluid.
