I was introduced to this by my holistic vet friend . The active ingredient is microLactin -- dried milk protein from super immunized dairy cattle. Back of label says "canine tablets contain MicroLactin a patented dried milk protein concentrate derived from hyperimmunized cows that contains factors that appear to block cytokines and inhibit neutrophil participation in the inflammatory response.
Duralactin canine tablets do not share the mechanisms of action of any known drug and are not cyclooxygenase (Cox 1 or Cox 2) inhibitors .
For canines only.

I think it is very good . I gave some to my old boy Simon , 12 years , and even though he was was in good "young for his age" condition , I see him just that little bit better

huntergreen i agree with others who say the vet is giving the best treatment. i would also add human grade glucosimine and msm. check with your vet about the dosage.

Heidigsd I agree with the Adequan, it helped my Heidi a lot.

I would also check on some laser therapy since there are no drugs involved and I hear people have good results with it.

asja I've also used Dog Gone Pain (DGP) with good results. It's several herbs that help with inflammation and pain. But if your dog is in alot of pain, I'd go for Adequan.

Waldi My 12 yo golden has arthritis and she has been struggling sometime with walking. I did some research on supplements and fount “Sierra Sil 14” and decided to try it. I was amazed with results on my dog, where after 3 days of treatment she would start running again. I only give her this treatment when she is visibly in pain and cannot walk. After she is fine for few months. She just had an episode where we could not walk with her and had to split walking with my gs puppy and golden into separate walks. I sprinkle Sierra Sill over her food (she hates the taste of it but will eat anything LOL) in two day she was like new. I will add that I used the same specific on my shoulder injury and had similar results.

Got my oldies a few more comfy years.

asja I give my dog Dasuqin with MSM, and I think it's good. My dog is 9 and doesn't appear to have arthritis, so that's good.

gnet158 We are and will continue to make the best choices for Toby, no doubt. The thing I didn't like was the way he was willie nille, when I started to question him it was only then that he suggested the pain killers. We just want the best for our boy (as do we all).

Well said.
