(I hope this is in the right forum!)

I just ordered a bottle of this for Kamahi since he's beginning to show some early signs of HD, but before I give it to him, I was wondering if it looks safe? I know some human supplements aren't necessarily the best for dogs, so I wanted to check to be sure!

Supplement Facts
Serving Size 1 Tablet
Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCl(from shellfish)500 mg *
Chondroitin Sulfate USP 400 mg *
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) 200 mg *
*Daily Value not established.

Other ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose (plant fiber), croscarmellose sodium, crospovidone, hydroxypropyl cellulose, calcium palmitate, silica, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, glycerin.

There's no such thing as a bad dog. It's the owner behind the dog.

That's pretty much what I used to give, I probably gave two a day for the GSD, but some may need more. I also found that finding the right joint supplement was trial and error, and as the dog aged, needed a combination of treatments.

I have been using SynoviG4, I get it pretty cheap off ebay. Masi has been on it for a couple years now and I'm happy with the results..I was seeing some stiffness in a rear leg, even tho her xrays are clear, happy with this stuff..I find every dog I've given anything chondroitan in upsets their stomache

Supplements are so confusing to me! I just checked and Swanson is out of those right now. I've always given Sammy Glycoflex III. As a maintenance, it says to give 1/2 tablet per day, but I've always given 1 tablet per day.

Ingredients are:
Glucosamine HCI (Shrimp and Crab) 1000 mg
MSM 1000 mg
Perna Canaliculus (Green Lipped Mussel) 600 mg
N-Dimenthylglycine HCI (DMG) 100 mg
dl-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vit E) 50 IU
Calcium Ascorbate (Vit C) 30 mg
Manganese 10 mg
Grape Seed Extract 5 mg
L-Glutathion 2 mg
Selenium (as Sodium Selenite) 0.002 mg

He had TPLO surgery in July and turned 9 last October. He's doing great, but he is starting to be a little slower when getting up. Am I giving him enough? Can you give them too much? I know it wouldn't hurt them probably, but does it really help?
