What is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that is found in skin and connective tissues like joints, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. But not only is it massively important to our bodies, it also makes up a whopping 30% of all the protein in your dog’s body, so it’s pretty important stuff. Collagen has an extremely positive effect on the strength of their bones, teeth and claws.
However, just like our bodies, as time goes by collagen production is slowed and can leave them more prone to injuries and conditions affecting their bones and joints. You may also notice a change in their skin and coat health.
The loss of collagen as our dogs age is natural, but there’s no need to say goodbye to the collagen levels that have been built up and just “accept” that once the collagen is gone, it’s gone. Luckily you can help rebuild your dog’s collagen levels with ‘Collar-gen’ by Pawable, our blend of collagen for dogs.
So, why should you add collagen to your dog’s diet?
As you can probably already tell, collagen is a pretty important protein for your dog, so there are many reasons you should add it to your dog's diet. Our unique mix of 5 different types of collagen helps support: Bones & Joints, Digestion, Skin & Coat and Claws.
Bones & Joints
As we mentioned earlier, collagen is the main protein and the building block of bones, joints, cartilage and connective tissues. It can lead to better mobility and decrease the chances of arthritis and joint breakdown later in your dog's life.
Adding collagen to your dog’s diet can help soothe and repair tissues in your dog's digestive tract that can contribute to poor digestion and nutrient absorption.
Skin & Coat
If you’re looking to keep your dog’s skin and coat Crufts ready, you’ll be happy to know collagen is what gives your dog's skin it's healthy elasticity, strength and suppleness. Plus, as well as keeping fur healthy, collagen can stimulate new hair growth and reduce hair shedding (so put that hoover away!)
Another important benefit of adding collagen to your dog’s diet is not only for keeping their claws strong and healthy, it'll also help keep their teeth healthy too.
