Eggshell Membrane Study:
Efficacy & Safety Study of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM) for the Treatment of Joint & Connective Tissue Disorders - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov Eggshell membrane: a possible new natural ... [Clin Interv Aging. 2009] - PubMed - NCBI



Conclusions: Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEMŽ) is a possible new effective and safe therapeutic option for the treatment of pain and inflexibility associated with joint and connective tissue (JCT) disorders. Supplementation with NEMŽ, 500 mg taken once daily, significantly reduced pain, both rapidly (seven days) and continuously (30 days). It also showed clinically meaningful results from a brief responder analysis, demonstrating that significant proportions of treated patients may be helped considerably from NEMŽ supplementation. The Clinical Trial Registration numbers for these trials are: NCT00750230 and NCT00750854.

I think I originally read about eggshell membranes on this board and then did some additional research. Since Rafi gets a raw egg every day and since I eat 4 or 5 eggs a week I save the shells and then peel out the membranes. You can buy them too. They really help Rafi with his joint issues.

I would guess that the eggs should not be cooked though.

SunCzarina Otto's a big boy and he's put on some weight that's got to come off so I just put him on Glucosamine - 750 a day which I don't think is enough but I want to make sure it agrees with his sometimes iffy stomach.

Olive oil for dry skin and shiny coat - but not on the food, I cook vegetables for us in it and let the dogs lick the pan clean. Probably 3 tablespoons a week per dog.

Venus also gets cucumbers and carrots for her anal glands, she's got trouble expressing herself if she doesn't eat a lot of roughage.

BowWowMeow Rafi takes the same probiotics I take. They are the Vitacost brand.

He also gets kefir.

InClover Connectin
Springtime Inc. Longevity
eggshell membranes
Honest Kitchen Perfect Form
probiotics
coconut oil
Tumeric

I think that's it?

Feeding fresh or canned fish is supposedly better because fish oil has a tendency to spoil and lose it's health benefits from sitting for too long. The omega-3 fats in the oil are fragile as the carbon double bonds are easily oxidized. EPA has 5 double bonds and DHA 6 double bonds, so they are the most susceptible of all dietary fats.

Sardines contain a good amount of extra minerals and vitamins. They are very low in mercury, including small mackerel compared to other fish making them one of the safest and healthiest fish for dogs. I would feed them sparingly though, once or twice a week because of their high sodium content.
