I think Dasuquin also has pain reliever in it.
Dasuquin has
Glucosamine
Chondroitin
ASU (Avocado/soybean)

I get the Dasuquin w/ MSM

There is no pain reliever. These products seem to work better than other joint supplements, possibly because of the quality of the ingredients.

Dasuquin w/ MSM, on Amazon.com, has gone up $20 to about $100 for 150 chewables.

I'd watch the soybean. For all who push this plant ingredient, it also can cause thyroid problems in both humans 7 dogs.

Glucosamine + yucca has been proven (but I an't find the darn article) to be a superior product to chondroitin. I worked for a vet that also added natural aloe to that. Have no idea if it really worked, but I know the dogs liked the aloe & their fur got more shiney.

Bone Broth....

These are interesting reads

It doesn't look like there is really that much phosphorus in the bone broth, at least for stage 1 CRF.

I assume you would be using liquid, right? It would be too much of a pain to draw it up and try to get it down the dog (for me). Originally, Dakota was on liquid medication for his seizures. It was a disaster. He would NOT take it unless it was in something delicious like peanut butter. It just helped make him fat, which didn't help his poor joints.

If you think you can manage the liquid, or it isn't liquid (it would be difficult to cut a horse sized pill down to a dog sized?) you could try it and if the lower amount of chondroitin is a problem, you could switch. But then you would likely be wasting product.

I picked up the Dasuquin saturday, still $73.
Thinking back the vet probably said Apache "needed a pain reliever" with the dasuquin rather than there was a pain reliever in it.

Dasuquin w/ MSM on Amazon has gone up. I don't know about regular Dasuquin.

I bought a years worth for Jax and Banshee at a good price this weekend.

Monica carries a joint supplement, not sure how it compares to the price of the Dasuquin? Joint Complex

Shipping cost will be more since it comes from Canada.
