Duralactin is another good one to look at. I add this to my two older dogs diet and it seems to help. It's an anti-inflammatory and I've heard that in some cases with regular use, it has been able to replace NSAID's.
I personally bought the 3 pound horse pail of Duralactin Plus. It's also got glucosamine and other stuff to help with joints. It's a lot cheaper than the dog version, and the proportion of active ingredients is the same. I weighed it all out and just scaled down. I give my big, 75 pound dog 4 teaspoons a day, 2 in the AM and 2 in the evening. My small breed gets 1 tsp in the AM and 1 in evening.
Also, I've heard that chicken feet is a good, natural source of glucosamine. You can usually get them from Mexican markets pretty cheap. It's sort of creepy, but it might make a good treat! My dogs love them.
