Hello
My 12 years old labrador is on a Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplement, her food is also supplemented with elements to help manage arthritis but we still struggle to reduce pain.
I found a natural anti-inflammatory (Inflavet) that I would like to try whose components are Baicalina (Scutellaria baicalensis), Trans-Resveratrol (Polygonum cuspidatum) and Boswélics acids (Boswellia serrata). But I cannot find information about if it is safe to use it alone or in combination with Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplement.
Does anyone know where can I find this type of informantion.
Thank you in advance
Best Regards

Thank you very much for your help Hannah!
My Labrador is already being followed by two vets that only prescribed glucosamine and condroitine and tramadol in SOS.
That is why I started looking for other options.
She is going to start physiotherapy in the summer but only if the pain is reduced by then.

From a CAM clinical research adviser
I look forward to hearing what Veerle has to say. I just don’t know enough about this and can’t really find much on it. My concerns include 1) it being a combination supplement, presumably without quality assurance testing, 2) individual components (resveratrol and boswellia) may have some suggestion of clinical efficacy, but nothing convincing that I can find, and 3) side effects and/or drug interactions do not appear to be well elucidated (resveratrol and boswellia, at least, appear to have GI side effects and metabolism via CP450). I wonder why her Lab is only on GC if pain is problematic. Seems in their best interest to refer them to their vet for evaluation and treatment.

From Veerle Dejonckheere a veterinary herbalist…
I would suggest approaching a recognised herbalist when combining herbs and NSAIDs
Scutellaria baicalensis and Boswellia I use a lot with arthritis. Be carefull with the stomach!
Polygonum is not a herb a lot of u in the UK use routinely but I took resveratrol when I had acute Lyme, if I remember well it is great for connective tissue stuff. I could never find any article that made me comfortable using it on dogs with several medication. My mentor, Barbara Fougere siad it is used a lot in the USA
. I would want to mellow this out with some stomach herbs/liver herbs/ circulatory herbs and if this dog is already on NSAID I would thread carefully!  combining with glucosamine and chondroitin no problem.

Hi Hanna
Thank you very much!
I also thought about contacting the company but I was hoping I could find more information online. Maybe I should do it anyway.
Best regards
