Osteo 3 Nutritional Supplement
OsteO-3 Nutritional Supplements
OsteO-3 is a nutritional supplement that is prescribed to dogs and cats who suffer from health conditions that affect their joints such as arthritis. As these animals age, they suffer from joint pain and stiffness as the cartilage between their bones gets worn out. And as they get older, their bodies start producing less fluid that cushions their joints. This then interferes with their ability to move around easily; hence, it is important for you to provide your dog and cat with supplements that will support healthy joints and prevent joint problems as they get older.
This supplement not only improves the health of the joints, but also increases their overall energy, mobility, and their strength as well.
OsteO-3 is available for purchase online at Canada Pharmacy.
The main ingredients present in these nutritional supplements include:
- MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane)

OsteO-3 nutritional supplement for dogs is available in the form of chewable tablets and granules; you can either add them to your dog’s meal or can give it alone. There is a recommended dosage that you must know for the initial period that is from 4 to 6 weeks. The dosage depends on your dog's weight.

If your pet is hypersensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients present in the supplement, it may lead to other adverse reactions. If your dog or cat starts showing signs of any unusual symptoms, then make sure to consult your veterinarian.
This is because the vet might reduce the dosage or might prescribe you an alternative medication instead. Once the dosage is reduced, or alternative medicine is prescribed, you will then notice that the side effects will slowly start to disappear.
The side effects include:
- Insulin resistance
Other side effects not mentioned in this list may also be present.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
