- Shark Cartilage
Shark Cartilage (Chondroitin sulfate) helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. Shark cartilage, which is primarily composed of chondroitin sulfate, is best known for its anti-angiogenesis properties. Without inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in the joints, calcification occurs and the body becomes unable to heal damaged joint tissues. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it. Our shark cartilage is obtained exclusively from legalized fishing methods.

I believe in this!
- We rescued (what we believe to be a Golden Retriever/Bernese Mountain dog cross) at one year old. Six months later we discovered he had one of the rarest forms of cancer a dog can get - thyroid cancer. They removed the tumour but the margins were not clean. Meaning there was a chance the cancer had spread. So we started him on what was supposed to be 4-6 treatments of chemotherapy. However, his system is very sensitive and he could not tolerate the chemo at all. So we stopped treatment after 2 sessions. Shortly thereafter I ran into a neighbor, who said he had a dog that looked just like mine. He told me that at 8 years old his dog was diagnosed with cancer, and had two surgeries to remove the tumours. He said he read up on canine cancer and put him on shark cartilage daily (and nothing else) after his surgery & kept him on it for the rest of his life. He didn't do anything different other than giving him the shark cartilage daily. No diet or other supplement changes. He told me his beloved dog lived to be 18 1/2!!! And when he died he didn't die of cancer! That was all the testimonial I needed! I read up on it too, and have had my dog on wholistic shark cartilage ever since. He just turned four and has been completely cancer free since. I should mention I also give him K-9 immunity plus supplements to keep his immune system strong too! So I hope with continuing him on shark cartilage, I will be lucky enough to be celebrating my dogs 18th birthday too! I also love how this is sustainably harvested. I won't use any other shark cartilage! So I'm very happy with this product, and being its a canine supplement with dosage guidelines specifically for dogs - is very helpful too! Love this prouduct!!!
As a supplement alone, I did not see *too* much improvement in my arthritic Labrador. However, when used in conjunction with Joint Mobility Complete w/ Green Lipped Mussel - there was a significant amount of improvement compared to when each supplement was used alone.
Expensive, but great to have a product like this.
