You can use Gluclasomine or MSM - Walmart has them in big amounts... human pills are cheaper then what you can get from the pet supply cataloges...

GLC Direct has supplements for horse, humans, and dogs! They are good supplements.

We have used the GLC5500 for horses and love it as well.. it is a no load supplement with no ill effects that we can see.. The best part is it works.

And keep him/her in good weight - do not let him/her get pudgy - much harder on them. Muscle tone will also help - if you have someplace for him/her to swim that of course is best, but even walking will help keep them toned and the rest of their rear muscles working at their strongest.

I use these jerky strips, made by ark naturals. You can get them at Sutherlands or Petco (much more pricey)

They have all the recommended Glucosamine/Chondroitin and msm. Plus they have Sea cucumber powder which is supposed to be really good for the hips/joints. They cost about $15/bag and a bag will last you almost a month.

My dogs love them and they're actually made right here in Naples, FL!!

Here's the web site www.arknaturals.com

cetyl M is what we used for our dane and it worked the best out of anything we tried it is pricey but you get what you pay for. she lived to be 14 and that is pretty long for a dane.

I've heard a lot about that stuff. See it advertised on RFD TV all the time. Might have to try it. Do you give it more than once daily? Seems like a low dose of Glucosamine.

I use missing link with the glucosamine in it. It is good for a lot of things.
