Bones and joints benefit from a properly balanced diet. Although we think of bones and joints as static, or completely developed once adulthood is reached, they are constantly restructuring themselves. Therefore, to stay healthy, they need a constant supply of nutrients including protein, water, and minerals like calcium and phosphorous.
Signs of Healthy Joints and Bones
Here are some signs that may help identify bone and joint health:
- Normal range of motion and flexibility.
- Ability to perform routine tasks or movements, i.e. climb stairs, jump up or down, or play.
- Dog exhibits the proper posture or stance.
- Continued ability and interest in play and/or exercise.
