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.
