Joint Supplement

732 viewsMedication


Hope you can help 😊 I have a nine year old black lab and he’s a big boy. I want to start him on a joint supplement as he gets a bit stiff after long walks.

We have always kept his weight perfect and fed him a premium food.

Do you have any recommendations?

I agree with all that Catie and Kathryn have said. As well as Omega 3 oils, 2 other supplement types with evidence behind them are avocado soybean unsaponifiables (found in Dasuquin) and Undenatured Type II collagen (found in Kruuse Vitalchews and Flexadin advance).

Trial a supplement for 3 months to see if it is helping, and use tools such as keeping a daily diary (this can also help you to identify any pain patterns). The downloads and resources page on the CAM website has a good day/bad day diary and a chronic pain indicator chart that are useful

Also, make sure he is of an ideal bodyweight for his size. If he is overweight in any way then helping him to lose weight will have a far more beneficial effect than any supplement could. We will be bringing out a nutrition and supplements booklet in the near future that will have lots more information.

Take care,

Warm wishes,
