Dog Joint Pain Challenges
Does your dog suffer from joint pain?
Aging or overweight dogs frequently suffer from osteoarthritis.
The common joint disease causes deterioration of joint cartilage, resulting in a loss of lubrication between the joints.
When joints lose lubrication, the body tries to produce more synovial fluid resulting in joint swelling.
When left untreated, joints break down causing small fractures and bone spurs to develop.
The friction and bone spurs cause pain as the joint capsule stretches and rubs against nerves and bone.
Traditional veterinarians may recommend Western remedies such as NSAIDs to treat the pain associated with arthritis.
A veterinarian practicing Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) may recommend alternative options to strong pharmaceuticals, such as Eastern and Western herbs or supplements.
What is in the Harmonize Joint Supplement?
PET | TAO Harmonize Joint is a holistic supplement combining:
- Glucosamine Sulfate (Shellfish source)
- Calcium Ascorbate (Vitamin C)
- Green lipped mussel (Perna Canaliculus)
- Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
- Sea Cucumber
- Angelica sinensis
- Alfalfa powder

PET | TAO Harmonize Joint also contains the following inactive ingredients:
- Dicalcium Phosphate
- Distilled Monoglycerides
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Natural Flavoring
- Silicon Dioxide
MSM, short for methylsulfonylmethane, is a non-toxic, odorless chemical.
In nature, MSM exists in animals, plants, and humans.
In the body, MSM helps the body efficiently use vitamins and nutrients.
Supplementing MSM is beneficial for amino acids in the skin. MSM decreases pressure inside cells, allowing water and nutrients to flow better inside cells. This process more effectively nourishes the body and improves skin elasticity.
Healthy joint fluid and cartilage contain glucosamine. A glucosamine supplement can help restore the damaged fluid and tissue when injury or wear and tear degrades joint fluid.
Glucosamine supplements are frequently used as a“first line”dog arthritis treatment.
Glucosamine is available in both oral and injectable preparations.
Green Lipped Mussel
Green-lipped mussel (Perna Canaliculus) is a mollusk harvested from the beaches of New Zealand used to reduce osteoarthritis, asthma, and inflammation.
A high concentration of mucopolysaccharides, which are as important in nutrition as amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, comprise the edible shellfish.
In studies, mucopolysaccharides show anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory effects on connective tissue diseases.
A study by The American Society for Nutritional Sciences shows green-lipped mussel may be particularly beneficial to dogs with symptoms of arthritis.
Some call green-lipped mussel a “superfood” due to the number of nutrients it contains.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant benefiting pets’ immune systems.
In addition, Vitamin C also maintains healthy collagen levels, aiding dogs with degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis and hip dysplasia.
Manganese is a trace mineral needed for nutrient absorption, bone development, and immune-system defenses.
In addition, Manganese aids the formation of bone mass and helps balance levels of calcium and phosphorus.
Manganese can also help reduce joint inflammation.
Vitamin E is an important addition to the other vitamins and minerals.
High doses of vitamin E have an anti-inflammatory effect and may help with pain and swelling.
Aging dogs with stiff joints may benefit from vitamin E supplements for improved mobility.
