Default Joint Supplements

What do you give? How much, what brand, etc?

My Chocy (100 lbs) was diagnosed with arthritus a few months ago. I knew from past experiences to always give my dogs Glucosamine to avoid joint issues. But apparantly it wasn't enough. The vet gave us Phycox, they are chews and he gets one twice a day. Within a week his limp got better, within a month cleared up. His mom, Dixie was the next to develop it, she started the Phycox and all is well already. I now give it to all my dogs, as a preventative. I don't know the strength I don't believe it comes in different strengths. But I have talked to other vets about it and they also swear by the stuff. Google it, it is amazing.

I give Cali a small scoop of HylaSport Canine each day. I forget the exact measurement, but I estimate that it'll last a good 120 days. It's not cheap, but I don't think it's crazy expensive either.

It's mostly to try and prevent arthritis and other joint issues, since Cali has luxating patellas, but I read many good reviews prior to ordering it.

Cosequin chewable for Logan, one twice a day. Free through IAADP I'll probably switch him to Dasuquin non-chewables (no extra flavorings and crap to set off potential allergies) when my supply runs out, and they will also be free through IAADP.

Gavroche doesn't get one at the moment, but usually he gets generic ones from Kroger, or the one-a-day name brand ones that I can't remember the name of.

Jaia and Cara get:

MSM: 1000 mg per day
Glusosamine: 1500 mg per day
Chondroitin: 1200 mg per day
Ester C: 1000 mg per day

I buy them at the people pharmacy. Cara has had hip dysplasia for 9 years and she's still doing very well.

I use Dasuquin. One delicious chunky square a day for each (which I'm too lazy to go see how much of everything that means).

Dasuquin for Bailey. Buzz can't take anything because of the flavorings.

Auggie gets half a Glyco-Flex II on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Payton gets half a Glyco-Flex I on the same schedule.

Pepper doesn't get anything, though I have thought about giving her some I... but since she isn't a sport dog, nor nearly as intense as the boys in her every day life, I don't have the same concerns about her.

Rylie gets Glycoflex III every morning. Because of her size, she just gets one of the pills for cats.
