How it Works: One of the active ingredients in ProMotion is glucosamine, which is a natural compound that is found in healthy cartilage in both humans and pets. It helps hydrate healthy joints by increasing the production of molecules that bind and hold water in the cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides cushioning which helps protect a pets joints while exercising. Many believe that it provides clinical benefit in the synovial fluid by strengthening cartilage and aiding glycosaminoglycan synthesis. Further research on the effectiveness of glucosamine is still needed, but many of our customers find it to be very beneficial to their pets. ProMotion also contains manganese, which helps maintain adequate levels of nutrients required to build and repair connective tissue. Another ingredient, cysteine, helps the body detoxify and protects cells from free radical damage.

I currently own a 10-11yo rescue large working breed who does therapy work and travels in a friend's truck to get to the places she visits. She has had years of doing sheep herding and had become a bit 'stiff'. To her 'embarrassment' - or so it appeared - my dog could no longer get into the back seat of the truck on her own. After a week on ProMotion she was once again getting into the truck on her own.
I also have a 14yo medium breed that continues to leap into vehicles after 11 years on the agility circuit. He has been on ProMotion for 3 years so far. :)
Another 'plus' is that, at least so far, every dog ProMotion is offered to will take the tablets right out of your hand. No "pilling" required.
I absolutely recommend this product and indeed I have started several friends on using it for their older dogs.
You know, I sometimes feel like taking it myself to help MY aching joints - LOL!
