Preventive and Support for Arthritis and Joints
The number of so-called natural supplement products claiming to help joint discomfort is growing rapidly. You can’t avoid the ads claiming that this product or that one will “help joint problems” or “cure arthritis”.
When choosing a joint supplement, the first thing you should decide is if you just want to make the joints temporarily feel better or if you want to help solve the actual problems that are causing the pain in the first place. The ingredients most commonly added to joint supplements are there either to mask or cover symptoms (pain or inflammation). Drugs (which includes most herbs) can quiet pain fairly quickly and effectively. However, for a body to use the building blocks provided through good nutrition to rebuild tissues, it usually takes 4-8 weeks for enough new fluid and tissue to be present for the inflammation and pain to ease and cease.
Lubri-Ease contains ingredients that are naturally sourced and designed to work as a supplement to boost the immune system as well as lubricate and build healthy joints.
The natural healing process in the body actually causes inflammation and swelling. You may want to read my article on a natural/naturopathic approach to Canine Arthritis
In traditional medicine, immediate masking of pain is accomplished through the use of drugs that are placed in the body either orally or by injection. These drugs (often including herbal ingredients, which are plant drugs) change the way the body normally functions so that pain is not recognized and/or the immune system stops the inflammatory response (and slows the healing process). The main types of drugs used are steroids (such as Cortisone or Prednisone), NSAID’s – non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – (such as Banamine, Phenylbutazone, Ibuprofen, Ketofen, or Aspirin), or other drugs that alter the recognition of pain or interfere with the immune response. Steroids and NSAID’s may cause joints to deteriorate faster than if these drugs had not been used.
These chemicals interfere with how tissues are made and how they heal. Since the pain is masked, they play a role in how the workload is divided among the joints, slowing the healing and increasing the risk of further injury.
Nutritional supplements can help the body fight back and heal itself by increasing the production of new tissues.
Choosing the right joint support product for your canine companion can be challenging. Often, getting a head start on supporting your dog’s joint health is far better than waiting until you notice signs of joint discomfort. And dogs with clear signs of aches or discomfort usually show improvement soon after a joint support regimen has begun. But with so many products available, how do you know which ingredients will benefit your pet the most? Do you really need those extra ingredients when you are giving a joint-support product as a supportive measure?
Only Natural Pet Lubri-Ease products have the answers for you. These natural joint support formulas offer the key joint support ingredients your pet really needs to stay active and maintain joint health, whether you are supplementing to maintain healthy joints or are administering to support joint health.
The three key factors for a good joint support product are:
Joint-building compounds, like Glucosamine Sulphate and Chondroitin to supply joints with materials for maintenance of healthy joint tissues. Glucosamine Sulphate is the basic building block of connective tissues and fluids.
Antioxidants, to reduce the joint-damaging effects of free radicals.
Healthy inflammatory response supported with ingredients like Turmeric. Curcumin, a component of Turmeric, has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent that can modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells.
Lubri-Ease formulas have all three factors and all the ingredients listed above and more, to support connective tissue health, maintain healthy joints and boost the immune system.
Which Lubri-Ease formula is right for your companion?
Lubri-Ease Tablets offer the convenience of tablet delivery (regular aspirin-sized), and added joint support with the inclusion of Green Lipped Mussel (Perna Canaliculus) for extra glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), chondroitin sulfates, amino acids, omega 3 fatty acids and trace minerals. The standard formula tablets are great for all pets with mild to moderate joint support needs. Each bottle contains 250 chewable tablets.
The Lubri-Ease Plus formula provides maximum support and includes Green Liped Mussel, hyaluronic acid (another powerful joint-building and lubricating component), and zinc for extra antioxidant action. Best of all, Lubri-Ease Plus contains a high potency dose of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), a naturally occurring sulfur compound that helps support connective tissue health throughout the body.
Lubri-Ease Plus is ideal for pets needing extra joint health support, and for aging pets needing extra care to retain flexibility and mobility.
These large (5 gram) tablets are easy to break into smaller pieces for small dogs or to crush into powder for administering in your pet’s food. Each bottle contains 90 chewable tablets.
Only Natural Pet brand products are 100% Guaranteed!

My 15 yr old Chi has torn ACL/CCL ligament and luxation patella in the same knee. We decided a non-surgical approach to healing. We must carry him so he can use the bathroom. I give him Lubri-Ease dissolved in water in the AM with a syringe. It is easy to administer, no side effects. He can now hop a little and his pain is diminishing. We will continue with this recovery plan. I wish we had started this years ago.
My new Border Collie rescue was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her front right little toe. Frisbee is her favorite, but always had to stop as she would start limping. Her vet suggested amputation. Of course I don’t want her to be in any pain, but I wanted to investigate my options before making such a drastic decision. I tried this product, and started to see improvement is about 3 weeks. She is loving her Frisbee and no longer limping. My Lab rescue is on this product for maintenance. I have two very happy dogs!!
We own a 165+ French Mastiff who has some joint issues. We have done some therapy for the past couple years. He is 4 years old and because of his Giant Size, we noticed him having trouble trying to use his back legs to itch himself. We have been using this product for two weeks and noticed a significant improvement on his mobility. We plan to continue use. It is all natural and safe.
