The combination of rosehip and devil’s claw is excellent for treating arthritis.
The Jenny Morris Rosehip and Devil’s Claw Biscuits are great for your adult or ageing companion. Supplementing their diet with enriched natural minerals and vitamins is well advised. This is especially true for dogs and cats that are likely to experience arthritic and hip dysphasia problems, which is very common with large breed dogs and almost all ageing animals.
For thousands of years, the Khoisan people have used devil’s claw root in remedies to treat pain, inflammation and many other medical ailments. It is used for degenerative joint diseases, such as arthritis, for back pain, and as an appetite stimulant and digestive tonic. Scientific evidence supports the use of devil’s claw root to help relieve pain and inflammation in people with arthritis and other painful disorders. The same applies for our pets.
Meanwhile, rosehip has pain relieving properties and it has also been linked to reduced inflammation in osteoarthritis. Scientists have found that powder made from a wild variety of rosehip, Rosa canina, is better at reducing pain in patients than glucosamine, a treatment prescribed by many vets.
The Daily Telegraph in its headline claimed that Rosehip was “better than painkillers” for arthritis. “Researchers have found that it is three times more effective than standard paracetamol at relieving pain and 40% more effective than Glucosamine.”
