      Working on the gut-joint connection

      Joint pain is common

      While not all joint pain is osteoarthritis, OA is a common degenerative disease that affects the joints, leading to cartilage breakdown, inflammation, pain, and disability.

      One study estimated about 20% of dogs over 1 year had OA.)

      Research suggests that a dysbiotic gut microbiome, characterised by an imbalance in the types and numbers of bacteria, is associated with the development and progression of osteoarthritis.

      How the gut affects joints

      There are a few mechanisms by which the gut microbiota contributes:

      1. Inflammation: The gut microbiota can influence the immune system and promote inflammation, which can contribute to the development and progression of osteoarthritis.
      2. Metabolite production:The gut microbiota produces various metabolites, such as short-chain fatty acids, which can have both positive and negative effects on joint health. Imbalances in these metabolites may contribute to osteoarthritis.
      3. Gut permeability: Disruption of the gut barrier, also known as gut permeability, can allow harmful substances to enter the bloodstream. This can trigger an immune response and potentially contribute to joint inflammation and damage.
      4. Systemic effects: The gut microbiota can influence systemic processes, including metabolism and immune function. These systemic effects may indirectly impact the development and progression of osteoarthritis.

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: Starting to show signs of arthritis.
      Great idea to keep my mate comfortable

      Bestie treats are a fabulous idea to help keep your best friend in top shape and comfortable at the appropriate moments when they need it. Sadly my dog is just not interested in eating them :( I offer them to him as a treat and he sniffs then walks away :(( He just does not seem to like the taste. I tried wrapping a treat in a soft cheese slice but he ate the cheese and left the treat.

      Oh! Thanks for the feedback...maybe that strong green lipped mussel flavour doesn't does to lots but not all. Stay tuned for an update on this chew.

      Bestie gummy chews

      Great product! Our Maltese Shih Tzu Teddy is almost 15yo, but took to the chews straight away. They certainly encourage vigorous, healthy chewing and will be a great asset to Teddy's dental health going forward.

      Many thanks for that feedback and video!

      The Groove joints chew

      Got the trial pack for my pups to try as part of their joint support maintenance. Love that is all natural

      Excellent to hear!

      Always happy with bestie products

      My friend’s greyhound loved them
      My dachshund cross jack russell couldn’t chew them as they were very hard. I tried cutting them up but it was virtually impossible

      Thanks for your feedback. That's great about the greyhounds, not so much about the Dachsie. That said, these were trial packs and the reason we were still trialling is because that batch was a little harder than we were aiming for...

      What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: To take the guesswork out of meal prep and balance our diy raw meals.

      Thank you so much for the sample pack. The dogs loved their gummy treats. Will definitely be ordering some more soon. They also love the bestie balancer which we use to balance their daily meals. Shiny coats, healthy and happy pooches.

      That's great to hear and thanks for the video!
