Anyone have suggestions for a Gluc/Chond supplement (powder, tablet, etc) that tastes good?

My pup has been taking Baytril, which can inhibit joint and cartilage development in puppies. I want to give her glucosamine and chondroitin supplements (together or separately), but would prefer not to give her more big icky pills.

Most of the treats that have these as ingredients are made in China. So I haven't found any snacks that I can use for this purpose.

Suggestions?

Trader Joe's used to make a liver flavored pill with both that my girl loved. Pretty cheep too- last time I looked for/found them was a year ago.

My guys LOVE getting their suppliments with yogurt, pumpkin or cottage cheese. Lakota has been doing the "suppliment dance" (night time version of the dinner dance) the last several nights since we changed our routine. She LOVES her "blue yoggie" blueberry yogurt with her suppliments.

my older guy and girl chew up their cosequin ds chewables, and they are a bit picky. however, if i dont break them in half, they wont touch them.(they are scored, so its just a quick snap.)

I give Mas Syn-flex (made in the USA) just squirt it on his food and he eats it right up. It has glucosamine a bunchg of other stuff in it. When I was giving him the gluc/chon pills I used a pill crusher and just sprinkled it on his food as well.

My mom's lab mix loves her glyco flex soft chews. My cat goes crazy for the soft chews made for cats and small dogs. She's a very passive gentle cat but when she sees the bag she goes for it!

We've been using the SynoviMax Soft Chews and they rate as "treats" in our household. Abby will gladly work to get one as a reward. (I feed them before filling her bowl in the morning, usually making her sit/down or any command we may be working on - at the moment it's "through" for going through my legs and then sitting on my left.)

I use the Springtime joint health formula (in powder form). I pour some water in with my dog's kibble, then add the powder and mix. It turns it into a gravy sort of mix that she loves. Their formula has glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, and a few other things.

I just drop all of my dogs supplements right in their food and they eat it all. Glucosamine/chondroitin from WalMart or Sam's, MSM, vit. c, vit. e, fish oil, prozyme. We put a little water on the food, soak a few minutes and all three GSD's eat it right up. I am so fortunate to not have picky eaters.

Most of my dogs, think anything tastes good, including their poop


I give Cosequin DS chewables though..But I've been looking into some cheaper alternatives for my labs, and other 2 dogs that don't have actual bone or joint issues..Max does way too good on Cosequin to pull him off (severe HD)...
