What are chondrocytes, and what role do they play in the health of your animal’s joints?
For decades, people, horses, dogs and cats have been taking supplements to support cartilage for aging or injured joints and to help slow down the onset of osteoarthritis. Products Like glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen and hyaluronic acid have been very widely used and are important components when it comes to strengthening and repairing healthy cartilage. Think of these nutrients hypothetically as the materials for building a house.
A factor that’s often overlooked, however, is how these components actually help new cartilage form.
