Hi, I’ve seen questions about collagen supplements surface recently and I’d like to know what the general consensus is on incorporating collagen into a senior dog’s supplement regimen to treat hip dysplasia.
My dog already gets healthy doses of Ark Natural’s Joint Rescue, CBD, and some other hip and joint supplements on rotation.
I know my dog gets some collagen from our homemade bone broth, but it isn’t as highly concentrated as what’s available in supplement form.
The tricky part with some of these collagen types is they are often packaged as protein supplements and I’d rather not add more protein to his diet, I just want the collagen.
Then I’m trying to isolate it to the type of collagen. Type 1, 2, 3 or some combination of them?
There seems to be a lot of hype building up for type 3, egg shell membranes.
Anybody here have any success incorporating a collagen supplement into their senior dog’s diet?Gwen LParticipant
There’s quite a few case studies on collagen here: https://pawable.co.uk/blogs/news/pawsitivity-tracey-and-nellieYorkiLover4Participant
We have been giving collagen to our elderly yorkie Beau and it has really helped his collapsed trachea. He was coughing and gagging all the time and it was like he was going to pass out. You have to give it a little time, but the collagen does work. It really improved his symptoms. The one we are using is called Ultra-Flex Collagen https://www.askariel.com/Collagen-for-Pets-p/154.htm It contains NEM natural eggshell membrane which is a form of food-based collagen.
