Advice on herbal treatment for my dogs oesteoarthritis

Hi i have a beautiful border collie bitch named Skye, she is nearly 8 years old. I March i noticed she was sometimes a little stiff getting up from the laying down position, but once up still ran around and looked completely fine. I took Skye to our local vet who diagnoised Skye with Oesteoarthritis in her right hip. Skye was prescribed a variety of NSAIDS over a couple of months but none of these suited her as she had diarrohea. She has now been taking Winstons jont system for 6 weeks. Last week i thought great she is looking much better very little stiffness however, the last few days she has been stiff again in her right hind leg. Has anyone found a herbal treatment that really helps? also has anyone else used Winstons joint system and had the same experience? Many Thanks Amanda.

Sounds like a lot of ingredients that a dog on a quality dog food don't need. I would buy something like this. I have had good results from glucosamine/chondroitin and the green mussel is supposed to be even better so aded together should be great.

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.

I have an older arthritic foster that I just got a couple weeks ago. I heard good things about Zeel. It's a bunch of homeopathic things rolled into one. I just started him on it yesterday so no idea if it is working yet. The reviews say that once it is in his system, in the long run it is more effective than rimadyl.
