I have 5 dogs...3 are getting older.... For the last few years I have given them a Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM "Joint Complex" made by Swiss Herbal - available over the counter at the drug store. I cannot believe that you are having such a hard time finding it. I use the human version...it's still all natural so you don't have to find a "dog specific" one. My beagle (who is turning 13) was also having some arthritic pains. When it seemed bad, I used the 81 mg Aspirin that people use to thin their blood. Both these treatments were okay'ed by my vet before I started. After a few month of the Glu/Cho/MSM, she no longer needed the Aspirin at all. I wish you luck! If you want dosage details, e-mail me with the breed/weight of your dog and I'll try to help. Up here in Canada a bottle of the "Joint Complex" sells for about $20 and you get 120 pills.

you mention fish oil which in my opinion is crud- a generic product that that may or may no include the sea's bottom feeders, salmon oil is vastly superior. A mix of glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin will help but will not be an over night fix. I know humans that sy that with out them they feel bad. Contact NaturVet and speak to your vet- they have the widest range of natural joint care products for both dogs and cats. http://www.naturaldogs.co.uk/store/natur... You may additionally need NSAIDs to help with the pain and inflammation- your vet will advise you further. Hope you find some relief ASAP.

Well there are a few things you could do but you need to get it from your vet. The first are in the form of NSAID's such as Rimadyl on such previding her blood work is clean. or you can give her adaquan shots which are givin to race horses to help with arthritis. also any suppliment with Hyluronic acid is very good at helping as well. Talk to your vet and see what her options are.

Don't try to diagnose your dog; you don't know what you're doing. Consult the professional: he went to school for a long time to get that DVM after his name.

There are lots of anti-inflammatory supplements that help with joint pain in dogs, as in people. Among them are turmeric, glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin, sam-E, Wobenzym-N, fish oil gelcaps, flaxseed oil, SODS, green tea extract. Do not expect rapid results - three or more weeks will likely be needed before you notice improvement.
