Willy is starting to stiffen up a tiny tiny bit. We're really only noticing it when he first gets up after laying down for awhile. But, it's there. He's an almost 7 year old Golden Retriever, who weighs 70 lbs. He prolly could lose 2 or 3 pounds, but since he's down from 78 lbs (oops), we're feeling pretty good about the 70 lbs!
I've ordered glucosamine chews for him, that contain (per tab - one tab daily for his weight):
Glucosamine HCl 750 mg
Methylsulfonylmethane 400 mg
Chondroitin Sulfate 400 mg
Vitamin C (as Calcium Ascorbate) 100 mg
Manganese (as Manganese Proteinate) 5 mg
allspice, brewers yeast, chicken liver flavor, nutmeg, silicon dioxide, stearic acid.
They're called Hip & Joint Extra Strength by Pet Naturals of Vermont.
Anybody else using glucosamine/chondroitin in their dogs? I take it for my knees and can really feel a difference!
