What Is Collagen for dogs?
Collagen is a type of protein. We usually associate proteins with muscle but it’s the most abundant protein in your pet’s body. You’ll find it in his skin, bones, muscles, tendons and cartilage. Collagen holds everything together and gives structure and support to the whole body.
There are many different types of collagen and it makes up an important part of your pet’s body. Adding it to his diet as a supplement can support his health.
Why Is Collagen Important?
Without collagen, there would be no structure or stability in any part of the body. It forms a layer around internal organs to keep them protected. Collagen supports healthy skin, aids the development of bones, supports joint health and helps to maintain a healthy, shiny coat.
Collagen in produced naturally in the body but, as we get older, it’s production slows down. Things like being exposed to toxins in the environment, smoke, or excess sunlight can negatively affect collagen production. It’s impossible to protect your pet from these factors so adding collagen to the diet is really important.
Collage can support your dog’s mobility.
Healthy joints and muscles are the main factors associated with your dog’s mobility. Collagen is a critical factor in both of these
Collagen Supports Strong Bones
As your pet ages, bone mass and density is also reduced. Taking a Collagen supplement may offer extra support to maintain skeletal health.

Wrinkles may not be such a concern for your dog but taking care of their skin and hair is definitely a good thing.

Can you use Human collagen supplements for your dog?
While the actual collagen may be the same for both humans and pets, there are likely to be additional additives in human products which may not be suitable for your dog. It’s recommended to only use products which are specifically produced for animals.
