Happy Hips which contains glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate and vitamin E aid in the therapy and prevention for Hip Displaysia which frequently affects mainly large breed dogs. However, these nutrients are extremely effective in helping to promote healthy joints in small, medium as well as large breed dogs.
Happy Heart helps promote just that – a happy, healthy heart! Happy Heart contains the herb Sage. Sage is a natural supplement that acts as an energy and cardiovascular tonic, which not only invigorates blood circulation but also nourishes blood while building immunity and raising resistance. In addition, Sage also promotes excretion of toxins through the skin.
