Canine Hip Dysplasia and Arthritis Can Be Affected By Digestive Enzymes

In an earlier blog, I discussed digestive enzymes and how those additives make overall health of dogs better but I wanted to tell you a little more about why and how. There are four digestive enzymes that are added to Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog to improve overall health, lower feeding requirements, and yes, reduce hip joint pain and inflammation that is frequently described as dysplasia.


Those four ingredients each do unique things to enhance digestion:


  1. Amylase- Breaks down sugars and enables starches to be hydrolyzed into sugars and then converted into energy. Amylase is present in saliva and begins the digestive process in the mouth so when this enzyme is added, digestion begins and increases earlier.

  2. Protease-Involved in digesting long protein chains into shorter ones by breaking the peptide bonds that connect different amino acids and isolate those amino acids into digestible forms.

  3. Betaglucanase-Helps break down linked glucose polymers often associated with grains such as barley, wheat, oats and soybeans.

  4. Hemicellulase-Hydrolyzes and breaks down fiber in the gut.


So, you have four enzymes that improve the digestion of starches, proteins, sugars, and fiber, almost covering everything in the broad spectrum of nutrients that is eaten by a dog. It is worthwhile to remember that when you enhance gut performance, you have an effect on many things including the response of the immune system of which approximately 80% of that function occurs in the digestive system and you increase the metabolism of most nutrients which makes for healthier tissue.


Both of those things work in your dog to reduce inflammation and kill bacterial infections which is going on right now in your dogs joints.
