Supplements for Arthritis in Dogs


You may be concerned that your dog is getting up more slowly then they used to. Or, they're not as interested in running very fast or far anymore. 

These symptoms could be a sign your dog is suffering from arthritis (osteoarthritis), or degenerative joint disease (DJD), which should be evaluated by your veterinarian.

Supplement for Artritis in Dogs

Your dog likely experiences stiffness and pain associated with arthritis inflammation on a daily basis. And sadly, there are long-term effects as well.

Arthritis causes progressive damage to the affected joints, such as knees, hips, and spine. As the cartilage surrounding your dog’s joints deteriorates over time, bone-on-bone friction occurs. In casual speak: the arthritis joint pain gets worse and worse! 

Thankfully, Vital Pet Sciences’ PCQ Pet may be able to help your dog’s halting and gingerly paced movements. This university-researched, patent pending formula can naturally address symptoms of inflammation and pain.


In January 2020, preliminary data was announced from a landmark study on PCQ Pet™ in older dogs at Texas A&M Veterinary School.

The findings were compelling.

In a clinical study, older dogs taking PCQ Pet experienced the following:

  1. 58% reduction in pain interference

  2. 57% improvement in quality of life

  3. 32% reduction in pain severity

The university findings were considered astonishing by the scientific research team, who stated that the effects were "better than glucosamine". 

The preliminary findings on the effects of PCQ Pet by the university researchers also included:

  • Older dogs taking PCQ Pet™ experience lower inflammation within weeks, as measured by level of physical activity.*

  • Older dogs taking PCQ Pet are active for almost an hour a day.*

  • Older dogs taking PCQ Pet do not experience a decline in activity level over time.*

  • Many dogs taking PCQ Pet show a significant increase in activity after taking PCQ+ Ultra.*

  • Older dogs taking PCQ Pet remained active and healthy, especially through the winter months.*

  • Dogs preferred taking PCQ Pet when sprinkled onto their food.*

After years of research and extensive market trials, the conclusions on the patent-pending formula in PCQ Pet are clear:

  • Dogs taking PCQ Pet™ experienced a significant increase in physical activity and exercise*.
  • Dogs taking PCQ Pet™ were more likely to stay active and healthy through their middle age and golden years*.

Vital Pet Sciences’ PCQ+ Ultra™ anti-inflammatory supplement for dogs is university-researched to quickly reduce inflammation in dogs. 

*Findings based on clinical and in vitro assays finding synergistic reduction in inflammatory markers, including a pilot clinical study on 7 older dogs with osteoarthritis of hip and knee, conducted at Texas A&M University Veterinary School*.

What does PEA do for inflammation?

PEA, or palmitoylethanolamide, is in a class of natural compounds that help to regulate inflammation and pain in joints like the hips or spine. All animals naturally produce PEA, but studies show that they produce less PEA in the affected joints when the problem becomes chronic. Chronic inflammation can reinforce the vicious cycle of cartilage damage that over time, results in bone-on-bone friction. Clinical trials have shown that PEA can reduce inflammation and pain and in some cases interrupt the damage occurring to your dog’s cartilage and joints. If joint inflammation becomes chronic and is allowed to continue uninterrupted, it can progress to degenerative joint disease (DJD).

By taking PCQ Pet over the long-term, your four-legged friend can enjoy the benefits of decreased inflammation and pain.
