Default Joint Health

Hello, we've been giving our dogs Glyco-Flex III bite size chews with very positive results. The issue is cost. Anyone recommend something just as good but maybe more economical? Thanks!

Hi, I give Kaden (in pill form) Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM to promote healthy muscles, joints, tissue, cartliage, and bones; Enhances strength and mobility. I buy it at Walmart, not expensive at all (human grade) and spoke to my Vet as well as other people who use this same combination for their dogs. I've noticed a huge improvement. The dosage you'd have to verify but I think it's 10 mg per 10 lbs.

That's what I did with Riley after the vet wanted to put him on Rimadyl indefinitely. I tried the Rimadyl for a month or so while researching a more natural route. I feel he did better with the natural supplements than he did on Rimadyl. I also gave him fish oil and vit E.

I used to give Gouda this product:
Hip And Joint Support Dog Extra Strength, Advanced Formula Containing Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM

HIP+JOINT EXTRA STRENGTH is a potent combination of joint support factors including Glucosamine, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). These naturally occurring substances provide the building blocks for supporting healthy joint and connective tissue functions. The results combine to support mobility, exercise tolerance and comfort. Available in a chicken-liver flavored chewable tablet dogs love.
Active Ingredients Per Chewable Tablet:
Glucosamine HCI . . . . . . . . . 750 mg
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) . . . 400 mg
Chondroitin Sulfate (Porcine). . .400 mg
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) . . . . 100 mg
Manganese (as Manganese Proteinate) 5 mg
Inactive Ingredients: allspice, brewers yeast, chicken liver flavor, nutmeg, silicon dioxide, stearic acid.
Directions For Use:
Up to 25 lbs: Give 1/2 tablet daily.
25 - 75 lbs: Give 1 or 2 tablets daily.
Over 75 lbs: Give 2 or 3 tablets daily.
When giving more than one tablet, divide between AM and PM.
For quicker results, double the above recommended number of tablets daily for the first six weeks.
