I give Lady Jane 2,000 mg of Ester-C per day. I didn't think it was working so when I ran out - I didn't buy more. After a few days I noticed that she wasn't as active.

i do the nupro silver on storm and my other 4. it has the ester c. i'm going on the website now to see how many milligrams it contains. might have to boost it up some. Nupro also has the chrondroitin and glucosimine in it too. my lab/shep mix is 11 and i've never given him any supplements until a few years ago, but he's doing great, so who knows. interesting study though. thanx for the share.

Lady Jane takes Springtime Joint Health Chewables along with the Ester-C. This supplement has some Vit C, but not a lot.

Rafi (who has HD) was on 2000mg of Ester C a day plus a double dose of the Springtime Inc. Longevity. I had to cut the Ester C back to 1000mg a day and haven't noticed a difference. If I cut back the Longevity at all I notice a HUGE difference (much more inflammation, etc.). I've had a number of my dogs on high doses of Ester C and I have to admit I'm still on the fence as to whether it really makes a difference...or maybe 2000mg a day is not enough.

This would go in hand with the accusation of a german vet claiming, that HD is caused by malnutrition (through processed food). The Error of the Millennium in Veterinary Medicine

Every breeder should do their own experiments and supplement their pregnant bitch- and later puppies- with high doses of VitC- as recommended by Belfield. Wouldn't it be great if none of those dogs would turn out displastic and HD could actually be erraticated. Question is, if they truly care about their dogs and what they produce, why does nobody do it??
