Most of my dogs are older and suffered from joint pain. I lost my lab, Little Man because of kidney failure after years of being on medication that took a toll on his organs. Much later I had read about glucosamine and decided to try it on myself and my dogs. At first I started purchasing joint juices and joint pills and some of them worked pretty well, however they were so expensive and it was myself and 2 dogs taking it. While searching at Walmart I found this unflavored powder that combine gelatin and glucosamine. It works great! You simple put a scoop in your baby’s dog food once a day. It takes about 2 months before you start to see a difference but you will. It works great for humans too suffering from joint pain and Arthritis.
You can buy this at Walmart, however I found it the cheapest (12 buck!) here online and you can set up automatic delivery making it super easy! CLICK HERE
I also give my dogs one fish oil caplet per day which I think not only helps with over-all bone health but great for their skin and Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain heart and vascular health. You can spend a lot of money for the exact same thing. I found it HERE 5.19 for 173 softgels. You can poke it with a pin and squeeze the smelling fish oil on their food which they LOVE or most dogs will just eat the pill mixed right in their food.
Joint help requires a good health system for you and your dog. Supplements alone will not work as well. Get out and move around with your dog. Take a daily walk. Even 20 min a day is great and will do you both a world of good. Go down to the riverwalk at Dan River, its lovely, a few times a week, enjoy nature, walk and meet new friends! If you need a walking buddy email me and I’ll let you know the days we are down there walking.
