Joint suppliments did wonders for my bad arthritic knees, my mom who was disabled from severe arthritis, my last old dog who started loudly yelping in pain and gave my old horse several more years of comfortable riding.
Advanced Cosequin was great for my last dog. Ideally you want a suppliment that has all four of the ingredients msm, glucosamine, chondroitin and hydraluronic acid (not sure if I spelled that right). Some ingredients make more of a difference for some dogs than others that's why it's best to have all four. Fish oil in addition to the joint suppliments can also be helpful.
Your dog should stay on the suppliments for at least one to two months to see if they're going to help or not, as they can take several weeks to kick in.
Pain meds are also good but all of them have some side effects that eventually risk some major organ. Not the joint suppliments.
