These heart shaped gummies are not only easy to make, but are super healthy for your furry bff. What makes this giggly substance so good for your dog? Well, gelatin contains collagen, which is used by the body to manufacture cartilage and bone. Studies have shown that it improves flexibility and can relieve joint pain. Great for dogs suffering from arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other inflammatory conditions. Along with joint health, this super food has amino acids in it that are beneficial for your dog's skin, coat and digestive system. Some studies have even found it to be a good supplement for dogs suffering from epilepsy.
