Yucca for dogs, which is also known as Yucca Intensive, is a supplement that can improve the joints and skin of dogs, according to PetMed Express. Yucca can also help dogs with digestion.
Yucca Intensive can be given with other pet medications that are used to treat arthritis, including Metacam and Deramaxx. Yucca can also relieve allergic itching in dogs and eliminate the need for steroid allergy medications. The supplement contains anti-inflammatory steroidal saponins, but without the typical side effects of steroids. Yucca has a bitter taste and should be mixed with pet food, water or apple juice before it is administered.
