Version - I don't know the levels of Gluco/Chond/etc. in the supplement we use off hand but I do know it's one that suggests three tablets per day for an adult and we give one tab AM/PM per dog. I believe it has Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and HA as well as other stuff in it. I'd have to check to see what's actually in it as I don't remember off hand.

Our vet has cautioned that Rimadyl should be a last resort as a long term "supplement" because of how hard it is on the kidneys and liver. She'll prescribe it for stuff like after a hard day hunting or for the 17 year old Lab at the kennel but would rather find a different form of pain management for the long term unless the owner is 100% into monitering the dogs liver every few months.
