Arthritis supplements

Post by NancyH »

Everyone,

It has been ages since I have been on the boards. So busy with on-line college and a teen age daughter. :roll:

I received an e-mail today from the people that adopted my first foster. He is having quite a time of it with his arthritis. I know there is a supplement from Grizzly that people have been raving about. Can someone tell me the name of it?

I have already suggested glucosamine and Missing Link.

Thanks!

Hi Nancy...I give Orion (13, still wants to go up to 3 miles a day and a pox on the heart murmur and arthritis) MSM and 1200 mg/fish oil (plain old Target house brand) and glucosamine/chondroiten with hyalonic (sp) acid. He also gets acupressure and I give him Zeel ( a homeopathic remedy). Hope this helps. 8)

Hello,
I'm the owner of Nancy's first foster, Beau. He is now 10 years old. He has very bad arthritis in his hips. The past two days he doesn't bear weight on his left hip. he has been on Missing Link, Glucosamine, and Synovial-flex. He gets the anti-inflammatories Metacam (as needed, but now daily), and Adequan shots monthly. Yesterday he started a two week period of Tramadol for pain. Otherwise he is very healthy, and a fun-loving dog. I welcome any suggestions you all might have for his care.

I gave Casey CortaFlx. They make a horse and dog version but the horse version is much cheaper because you feed so much less. It's a powder you sprinkle on their food. As with all of these supplements, some work better than others so you might need to experiment. If you decided to try this, it's available at most farm/feed stores or online. SmartPak (http://www.smartpakequine.com/ProductCo ... ?catid=593) Will send you free samples for horses, not sure about dogs.

I don't think we'll be at the picnic this year. Hoping to, but don't know yet.
Thank to all for suggestions. Have ordered Jointoats.
