Because we digest food relatively fast, human supplements are ground to affine powder, making it easier for our stomachs to absorb the active ingredients. However, the digestive tract of dogs is very different. They don’t chew their food; they swallow it. Since the food reaches their stomach in fairly large pieces, it takes longer for them to digest it and absorb the vitamins and minerals. When a pet is given a supplement manufactured for humans, it usually doesn’t stay in the pet’s system long enough for the ingredients to be fully absorbed.

Better absorption means a more effective treatment for your pet

What dogs need is a high-quality supplement designed specifically for their digestive tracts. That’s the idea behind Longlife Pet Supplements. While they are safe enough for human consumption, they’re designed to permit maximum absorption of such anti-inflammatory natural ingredients as mucopolysaccharides and the chondroitin sulfates A, B, and C, which are vital for the health of your pet’s cartilage, connective tissue, and tendons.
