Do you know the importance of collagen for your dogs and canine friends? You may have heard of collagen and its benefits, but do you know how it can affect your pet and why? Today, we’re putting the spotlight on The Missing Link’s Collagen Care Soft Chews and how we formulated them to target specific health and wellness needs for canines. But first, let’s get to know collagen and its many attributes…
What is collagen and why is it so important?
Collagen is a primary protein that is present in a dog’s connective tissues, skin, and bones. It provides 18 of the 20 amino acids in their bodies to create protein, and makes up 30% of the total protein in their bodies too. Pretty important, right?
Can dogs lose the collagen they naturally produce?
Yes, they can. Their ability to produce collagen decreases as they age, which can make them prone to injuries and poor skin and coat health.
What can I do to supplement my dog’s collagen levels as they age?
Good question. You can use a supplement, like our Collagen Care Soft Chews. Our soft chews come in three different formulas, created to target three pet health needs: Hips & Joints, Skin & Coat, and Calm & Focus.
Designed to supplement collagen in your dog’s body, our Hips & Joints Soft Chews provide amino acids for bone strength and joint flexibility.
In addition to helping replace lost collagen with Type II collagen, Hips & Joints also supports mobility, healthy joint function and cartilage development with added glucosamine, chondroitin, and turmeric.
Did you know that collagen makes up 70% of a dog’s skin & coat? Our Skin & Coat Health Soft Chews have a blend of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9, coconut oil, and fish oil to promote a glossy coat, maintain moisture levels, and overall healthy skin.
Our Calm & Focus Soft Chews are designed to help calm your dog from external stressors or everyday anxiety. With a blend of chamomile, L-Theanine, probiotics, collagen, and broad-spectrum hemp, the Calm & Focus Soft Chews promote healthy skin and coat, relaxation, and focus. Please note that our broad-spectrum is a non-psychoactive ingredient.
Collagen is an incredibly important ingredient and protein that can truly affect your dog’s health and wellness.
