I have used the Nikken CM with Mas and I swear it is a miracle suppliment. I saw a change in his back end so quickly, that I would not have believed it if I had see it myself. He has been on it for over a year. I am currently giving it to him every few days now.

Are you considering it for one of your sheps?

Nikken is the company that makes the suppliment with the Cetyl myristoleate "miracle ingredient" in it, which I use with my gsd Mas


I recommend it. Not the brand neccesarily, but the product. Did your vet suggest it?

No, I just ran across it on the internet. Right now Casey gets Cosequin DS and Arthrimaxx, but i will switch to this stuff and not give her the Cosequin anymore.
I will continue on with the Arthrimaxx still.
I don't think it would hurt to give her both do you?

I just looked up Arthrimaxx, it looks alot like the Synflex I give Mas in addition to the Nikken CM. Check with your vet next time you are in to make sure for sure.

Honey & Kelly's rehab therapist vet had me order the Cetyl M and I just got it. I'll post in a couple weeks and let you know what I think of it. Right now I've seen a lot of improvement with Kel with the increase of his Tramadol to 100mg 3x a day and the addition of the anabolic steroid.

Do be sure to get one that is from an animal source. Real CM isn't supposed to come from a vegetable source, though some products are just that.

How much do you give your dog? Casey is about 73 pounds.

Could I still give the Cosequin DS and the Arthrimaxx with it?

Thanks

YES....I use it for Gretchen who has DM and also serious arthritis issues. My friends mother was using it for her white GSD with great results and recommended it to me.

Gretchen has been on the CetylM for about a year. I truly believe that it has slowed the progress of the DM and helped with the arthritis issues. She also gets SynoviG3, immune support supplements and additional Glu-Chondroitin.

From the Vet she gets a small dose of Deramaxx.....no problems with that and the supplements.

Which brand of Cetyl-M do you buy, and how much do you give her? How much does she weigh?

Thanks

I buy from http://www.JointActionFormula.com
They give recommendations on the website and on the container for dosage. There is an initial period and then a maintenance dosage.

Gretchen is 75 pounds. For the first six weeks I gave her six tablets per day. She is now on a maintenance dosage of 3 tablets per day. I just break them up in her food.

SynoviG3 Soft Chews is another great product....I think I buy that from Valley Vet....would have to look it up.

I used Cetyl M with Ris, the same one Lisa uses (since she recommended it to me). I gave it to Risa 2x a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. She weighs about 45 lbs.

The vet who told me to put Honey and Kel on Cetyl-M knew what medications both dogs were taking including Dasuquin, Tramadol and Kel also takes Cosequin DS and Stanozolol, an anabolic steriod. She told me it was okay to continue their meds without changing anything.

Why don't you check with your vet to see if you should change anything?

CetylM comes in tablet form. I break it up in her food and she eats it without any problem. She will also eat them out of my hand.....they're flavored.

Jean, Mas just takes the Nikken Formula pill as is. I sometimes give it to him with a few small cookies or I throw it on top of his food. He is not one for pills and has been know to spit them out, but this stuff he takes from my hand no problem.
