Cat Joint Supplements Buyer's Guide

Share this  

Degenerative joint disease, more commonly known as arthritis, is a major health concern for older cats as well as for any pet that has suffered a joint injury. Treating arthritis in cats can be difficult. Many of the options available for dogs are either dangerous or difficult to use in cats, but joint supplements almost always play a central role in treating feline arthritis.

Many different types of joint supplements are available, but in truth, no one joint supplement is best in all circumstances. Some individuals will respond better to Product A, while others experience the greatest improvement with Product B. If you try one joint supplement and are not pleased with the results, there is nothing to lose and potentially much to gain from trying another.

The following table compares the active ingredients of some popular joint supplements. This is not a comprehensive list of everything that is included in each product or of all of the products that are available, but it does provide a good overview.
