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 would guess that the eggs should not be cooked though.

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.

|kjdreyer||Eggshell membranes? I haven't heard of this! Just the membrane? Is it a supplement that you purchase, or do you just peel the eggs? And what's the benefit? I give Jedda soft boiled eggs, and usually the membrane comes off with the shell, but am I taking away a beneficial part of the egg? Thanks!|

Rafi takes the same probiotics I take. They are the Vitacost brand.
He also gets kefir.

Let's see if I can get the prize for giving the most supplements!
Rafi has lots of joint problems and some digestive issues. He is on a raw diet (and doing great).
Omega 3-6-9 Fish Oil capsules
Springtime Inc. Longevity
Honest Kitchen Perfect Form
I think that's it?

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.
