HOW DO WE DETEMIINE HOW MUCH OF ANY OF THE INGREDIENTS THE ANIMAL IS GETTING

June 10, 2014

Dear Dr:

One of my customers has a GSD (spayed) just diagnosed with mild dysplasia. Now, I know that we have the Healthy Joint supplement and she has been feeding that to her dog for over a month now. The jar states that the formula has Glucosamine, Chrondrotin, and several other ingredients. Those are listed on the front of the jar, however, in the list of ingredients, those do not show up, nor does the amounts of any of the ingredients that are listed. How do we determine how much of any of the ingredients the animal is getting?

Hi Arlene,

The four herbal ingredients are 500mgm of each, Gluc...179mgm, chondroitin 125 mgm, Vit E 600 ius, and there are Vitamins, trace minerals, Lactobacillus, and enzymes are also included. There are new labels and the american??? had certain regulations that the company had to follow. The dosage of the Joint formula can be doubled if necessary. Hope this helps. My best,
