Re: Glucosamine supplements
I was just wondering how much glucosamine you were giving to your 6 yo GSD? I have a 5 yo who doesn't have any problems yet, but I'm starting glucosamine supps as a preventive measure. I orginially got the supps for my 10 yo border collie/lab who had extremely bad arthritis. I was told it would be a good idea to start giving them to my shepherd too as a preventive measure. I've been giving Speedy 500 mg of glucosamine a day. The package says to give a dog weighing Speedy's weight, 80 lbs, 1000 mg a day. Since he is not having any problems now, I didn't know if I should go ahead and give him the full amount or not. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
