Default Question about Dasuquin

So my boy, Avery was neutered today and while he was under I had the vet X-ray his back and hips. They came back showing HD which I figured would be there. The vet recommended giving Avery Dasuquin for the Glucosamine vs. the over the counter stuff because apparently over the counter stuff isn't formulated for dogs. I haven't bought the Dasuquin yet as I wanted some advice from everyone here. Also if this is a good choice where could I find it for a good price?

Thanks!

I use Dasuquin and did see improvement in my dog. It also caused him to itch so I will be switching to Cosequin to see if that helps without causing the itching. You can get it on Amazon and you just have to keep an eye on it for the best price.

Both my older dogs are on Dasuquin, Kiya & Lakota also get the same glucosamine/chondroitin/msm that I use.
Did your vet say if HD was mild, medium or severe?

She didn't say and I didn't think to ask (it's been a long day). I will have to call and ask her tomorrow as its already 8pm Germany time. From what understand from the X-rays is it is probably mild to moderate. She said to X-ray him every few years to keep an eye on it as well.

He is a year old and I know he's not perfect because I did not purchase him from the breeder but from his second owner making me number three. He's my baby and I'd do anything to keep the pain at bay for him. Thanks for the advice I'll check back in tomorrow after I talk with the vet again.

I give Dasuquin w/MSM to Jax and saw improvement over the springtimeinc supplements. Unfortunately, the price has gone up significantly.

The price of dasuquin has gone up? I usually pay about $75 for a large jar not sure of the quantity but I have to get some next week or so what do you pay?

I was using Dasuquin and recently switched to Duralactin. It comes in both a canine and equine version. The canine version is a vanilla flavored tablet and the equine version comes in butter flavored pellets. Since I have four seniors, I purchase the Duralactin Equine Joint Plus and the daily maintenace dose for my dogs is one teaspoon of the butter flavored pellets. My dogs never complain or seem to notice the addition of the pellets in their food since I mix in some warm water and a small spoon of canned food for taste.

The Duralactin Equine Joint Plus has both the glucosamaine and chondroitin as well as the microlactin which is an anti-inflammatory compound. It has worked wonders on my personal dogs and for any rescues that I foster or adopt that are seniors.

The Duralactin Equine Joint Plus also comes in a 3.75 pound bucket and I purchase it from www.probioticsmart.com online. They have the best price that I have found so far - about $60.00 US dollars delivered. For one dog and on the maintenance dose (after four weeks), one bucket will last for about eight months.

The vet said that Dasuquin has avocado in its mix while Cosequin does not. I don't remember what she said the avocado was good for but she recommended the Dasuquin over the Cosequin to me.
