Glutamine for dogs


Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a major role in protein synthesis. It is absorbed from a number of food products such as beef, chicken, fish and eggs and is generally part of an everyday diet for dogs.


Glutamine is found in skeletal muscles and circulating in the blood. It is required for numerous metabolic functions within the body including the regulation of cell growth, synthesis of protein chains, movement of nitrogen in the body and kidney cell function.


Glutamine is commonly supplemented to a dog to aid repair of muscle and bone tissue increasing overall healing time. It has positive effects on seriously ill patients and older dogs by helping to restore immune system functionality and prevent or aid control of infection.


The benefits of supplementing with glutamine include maintaining a general level of this amino acid to stave off muscular retraction as well as treating gastrointestinal problems.


Barker and Wags LeapDOG combines glutamine, glucosamine and chondroitin alongside several further active ingredients in a formula designed to promote healthy joints, skin, bones and overall good health. It is delivered via an oats-based complementary food that aids digestion and absorption into the body.
