Collagen is a naturally occurring protein and is most concentrated in the cartilage.
It is known as dense fibrous (connective) tissue as its main function is to support
connective tissue repair.
Dense connective tissue forms rope-like structures such as tendons and ligaments.
Tendons attach muscles to bones and ligaments connect bones to bones at joints.
Collagen acts as the dog’s body glue to adhere cartilage to bones and teeth to gums.
It contains amino acids needed for bone and joint health and nutritional support
to combat pain caused by inflammation.
Collagen supports muscle growth, increases metabolism and provides the structural
material and nutrients needed for the repair of injuries (cartilage, ligaments, tendons,
bones and discs).
Barker and Wags LeapDOG contains collagen in combination with other active ingredients
including glucosamine and chondroitin to support healthy joints and aid general recovery
