Our Key Ingredients

Joy Dog Food has 6 key ingredients in each product that benefits your dog’s overall health and performance. These ingredients, along with other minerals and vitamins we include in our food, are why Joy has been the leading dog food brand for high-performance dogs since 1945 without any recalls. Read more to learn about these key ingredients. 

Glucosamine and Chondroitin 

We include Glucosamine and Chondroitin in all our products to help support healthy joints and bones. Although these two ingredients alone do not fight diseases such as arthritis; they will help prevent these diseases when fed a high glucosamine and chondroitin diet at an early age and help with pain relief at an older age. You should always speak with a vet if your dog has a disease that impairs their movement and supplements to be pain-free. 

Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 & 6 Fatty acids are necessary for a balanced diet; that is why it is included in each of our products. Omega 3 & 6 are commonly known for their beneficial effects on skin and coat health- however, there is much more to them than just a shiny coat and healthy skin.

Omega 3 benefits:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Prevents irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia)
  • Assists in treating heart disease, chronic kidney disease and arthritis
  • Improves brain function
  • Slows down canine cognitive dysfunction in older dogs

Omega 6 benefits:

  • Improves the body’s ability to produce and repair skeletal and muscular tissue
  • Stimulates growth of your dog’s skin and fur
  • Promotes good bone health
  • Regulates metabolism

Zinc & Vitamin E 

The last two ingredients we will be discussing are Zinc and Vitamin E. Zinc supports a healthy metabolism, immune system, and even supports a stable and functional thyroid. Vitamin E keeps the immune system in peak performance and also produces antioxidants that ward away free radicals that can harm your dog. Together, these two give your dog a strong and healthy immune system; keeping them in the best possible shape.
