Heidigsd 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.

Jax08 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.

kiya 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.

Jax08 that's a powder that can easily be mixed with food.

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.

Jax08 Bone Broth....

These are interesting reads
Naturopathic Physician on Her Career Choice (Feb/Mar 2005)

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

Olivers mama 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.

Dasuquin has
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, has gone up $20 to about $100 for 150 chewables.

I think Dasuquin also has pain reliever in it. I take the same glucosamine chondroitin msm suppliement I give to the dogs.
I know a lot of horse/dog/human products are similar, ask your vet for a second opinion on the product or better yet contact the manufacturer.
