As far as I am aware there is no such product available to purchase for preventing dysplasia (wouldn't it be wonderful if there was). As we all know it is an inherited, polygenic disorder and both genes and the environment play a part in developing HD, my understanding is that the dog has to have the gene in order to develop dysplasia and that environmental factors will play a part in the disease developing, whether there are products available to stop the development - I doubt it.
There are most definitely products that can reduce further wear and tear and in particular help with the pain associated with joints rubbing etc. I tend to switch between glucosamine/chondroitin and green lipped muscle. The Glyde product has all 3 so is very good but expensive.
Imo hip and elbow dysplasia is so rampant in GSDs, that there will always be a dog in your dogs line that presented itself with the disease, how you feed, exercise your dog will also play a part here.
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
