I HAVE A 13 YEAR OLD GEMIAN SHEPHERD WHO HAS BEEN TAKING CONSEQUIN FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS

June 10, 2014

I have a 13 year old German shepherd who has been taking Consequin for about 2 years. He takes one AM & PM, containing 500 mg Glucosamine and 400 mg Chondroitin in each pill. How much of your formula should he have and also do you think he is too old for this to be of value? He was at the vet's yesterday and except for his arthritis is very healthy. He Weighs 87 lbs. We want to keep him as comfortable as possible for as long as possible

Hi Helen,

Most certainly my Healthy Joint formula will work well for your dog. The dosage is 1 rounded teaspoon per cup of food. If you feed 3 cups a day, there would be 510 mgm of glucosamine and 375 mgm of chondroitin. There are also other anti-inflammatory herbs that will relieve pain. There are no side effects. Soooo, I do think my supplement would be of great value to your dog.
