In researching joint supplements, I learned that it works on a building block system...each supplement being one building block in joint health. I use Dasuquin, Vit E, Fish oil....and Moj gets Vit C from his NuVets Plus and from the Cranberry he takes for his bladder.

Depending why you're using supplements you do need to add additional C. It works very well in high doses as an anti-inflammatory.

ok I"m going to throw out something completely off the charts:)

I wear magnetic bracelets for my tennis elbow, have a rotten ankle, and wear one on my ankle as well, I swear by them...Lisa, ever thought about a magnetic collar for Max?

If your interested in trying one, let me know, I"d be glad to make one for him, (I make them as well), let me know his neck measurement, (you don't want it tight, but not real loose)..we can experiment:)))

Diane - that is an excellent idea! It sure wouldn't hurt to try - and no side effects!

Diane, that is so thoughtful!!

And coincidentally, just the other day I dug out the magnetic collar I have for him, I had taken it off, and forgot to put it back on.

He wears the large size here: http://www.magnetictherapymagnets.com/magnetic-collar-lg.html

I do believe that it helps, I had one for Indy too.

A couple days ago a friend gave me this huge jar of Cetyl-M for Mac gsdsit along with a big jar of Dasuquin w/MSM. He's already taking the Dasuquin w/MSM but can he take the Cetyl-M along with the Dasuquin? I know Ringer used to take Cetyl-M but I can't recall if he was taking other supplements with it or not!!!

I used to give CM along with the regular joint supps, but the product that I used didn't have any other glucosamine in it. I don't recall if Cetyl-M has extra "stuff" in it. In general, it isn't going to hurt, but every dog is different!

I was tempted to say that Max didn't have one, since I'm thinking that yours look cooler laugh

Thanks Lisa ... I'll have to check to see what's in the Cetyl-M!!!

I definitely missed something here. Diane, where can I see one of yours?

Do these work as a preventative or just aid an existing problem?

Diane, you are soo cool! I will have to measure his collar!

Jan, I notice a lot freer "head tilts" when Max wears his collar. He does have chronic neck issues. I know with my magnetic mattress pad, it gives me a lot more energy, and if I wear my bracelet if my wrist is sore, it makes it unnoticeable.
