What joint supplements do you use..

My boy is doing just fine in the joint department so far, but I would like to help him stay that way the best I can--obviously genetics will have anyone beat, but I just want to do this as a precautionary type thing. What types of supplements do you guys use for your dogs for their joints? I would love to hear some brands that are not incredibly pricey, but still high quality.

Thanks!

Laura

Re: What joint supplements do you use..

For a great price, you can get them at CVS. Last week, they had a buy-one-get-one-free sale on CVS brand joint supplements, so I was able to get two bottles for $50, which is nearly a year's supply for one dog.

CVS Brand
Glucosamine & Chondroitin Triple Strength
180 tablets for $49.99

Contains (per 2 tablets):

Vit C 60 mg (100% daily value)
Magnesium Sulfate 2 mg (100% daily value)

Glucosamine HCL 1500 mg
Chondroitin Sulfate 1200 mg

**Contains NO yeast, wheat, milk products, lactose, sugar, soy, preservatives, or artificial flavoring

I ran it by another member on this forum who is very knowledgeable about this kind of stuff and she approved it. I give one pill per day for supplementation/prevention.

I also use Nupro Joint Formula -- GREAT for all around health support, with added glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. You can get a good deal at online pet supply places (couple months' supply for like $35-40). It's a yummy liver flavored powder you put on the food that makes a gravy when mixed with water.

Ruger and Sasha get the Nupro with one meal, then one joint pill with the other meal, so they don't get tired of the same liver flavor all the time. I also give the pills occasionally to Nico (who has excellent hips on x-ray) because he can't have the Nupro, as he's allergic to the beef liver.

You'll get more for your money with these: http://www.springtimeinc.com/product/94/2

They normally have a buy two, get one free plan but right now they also have 20% off on the joint supplements.

Plus they're liver flavored and the dogs eat them like treats.

Man, I wish I could get those! Why does it have to be "beef OR pork" liver? Nico can't have beef

I alternate between Cosequin and Arthrimaxx. SynoviG3 and a pure perna mussel supplement did not work for Simon.
