Human Glucosamine Supplement for my 12 yr old with HD

Hi All,

This is my first post on this forum. I am from India and have a 12yr old GSD with Hyp issues ( has problem getting up and walking )

I request your opinion on giving him Human Glucosamine Supplement available in my local market.

This particular one from Healthviva dot com under products / vitamins and minerals / joints

Is this inline with the ones available in the USA

kindly provide your inputs for me to make an informed decision.

Best Regards
Manoj

You can give him human supplements! My vet told me only half a pill a day though, not a whole pill.

at this age you are not going fix the problem.

I use pure MSM , pure glucosamine, and would use pure chondroitin

not crazy about seeing talcum powder -- starches and lactose binders.

you would do just as well if you used pure MSM and turmeric --- add some amla !

coconut oil , turmeric and a pinch of black pepper - better yet , warm the coconut oil and put in the pepper to infuse the oil then add turmeric -- helps absorption .
Slamdunc and Momto2GSDs like this.

coconut oil is a good idea - because turmeric is not water soluble so difficult to absorb.

Feed-Sentials does have organic turmeric in it AND it has oily seeds , or are fed with a nutritional
oil blend partner.

you are in India. You have one of the most powerful pain killer anti arthritic , anti inflammatory natural substances . This plant is native to your country and is known in ancient and modern
ayurvedic treatments.

Boswellia goes hand in hand with turmeric as well. And is suggested for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers
You could also look into Cats claw and Devils claw

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
