Wow 2 tablets a day for a small dog? I was going to ask how much I give.

I have been thinking it can only help with the minor occasional pain Summer has. The vet prescribed some pain meds and she has to take one maybe every couple of weeks. I'd rather see if raw diet plus supplements helps her.

It's not actually. Dogs don't utilize Glucosamine Sulfate well, so you want to make sure what you're giving is Glucosamine HCl. And not all *supplements* are created equal, human or otherwise. What they say on the label may or may not be what's actually in them. So you need to buy from a reputable manufacturer.

I really like Wapiti Mobility - we sell it at work, and I've heard amazing reviews.

I have Missy and Jack on Pet Naturals Hip & Joint right now, and I really like it. They also get fish oil (either Alaska Naturals or Natures Logic), kelp (Solid Gold or Pet Kelp), and digestive enzymes (ProZyme or Optagest).
