To play devil's advocate - there is no research that proves early supplements prevent problems or arthritis, but thinking about, and finally agreeing with, Lisa's theory, I started mine on glucosamine when they were just about 5 years old in just that case of undetected problems. They are not toxic, so if further research eventually proves otherwise, my guys will have a headstart.

Sorry. I would really like to use the affiliate link, but if you are watching pennies a I do, it is cheaper at Springtime.

On the link it is $39.98. At Springtime it is $45 but I always buy 2 at a time and get a 3rd one free. So at Springtime $90 buys three and on the link it is $80 fr just 2.

Sorry for the hijack.

I 'think' Max cannot take Longetivity - it has "beef or pork liver." I think Lisa said he cannot have that, but I could be confusing him with someone else.

Of their supplements for joints, only their Joint Health Formula in powder form does not have liver and it does look like a good product-

I've had excellent results with Dasuquin w/MSM. Mac's on it now and not doing bad for his age. My last group of old guys (Ringer, Honey & Kelly) also took it and it seemed to help them too.

Dasuquin with MSM is what Riley is taking and what both our vets highly recommended. I would really like to try the soft chews but after reading the ingredients - nooooo way. The soft chews have BHA and BHT preservatives in them, the chewable tabs do not -- at least according to the ingredients on the bottle I have. Darn the luck!

After reading Lisa's post I'm probably going to put Nissa on them, too.

Thank you for remembering! Yes, the pork *and* carrot are on his allergy list (luckily I've been able to feed beef lately).

Great input from everyone!

I have a friend using Synovi3 (?) and says it's not doing much - he's using a low dose, but wondering if anyone has had any experience with that one?

In researching joint supplements, I learned that it works on a building block system...each supplement being one building block in joint health. I use Dasuquin, Vit E, Fish oil....and Moj gets Vit C from his NuVets Plus and from the Cranberry he takes for his bladder.

Depending why you're using supplements you do need to add additional C. It works very well in high doses as an anti-inflammatory.

ok I"m going to throw out something completely off the charts:)

I wear magnetic bracelets for my tennis elbow, have a rotten ankle, and wear one on my ankle as well, I swear by them...Lisa, ever thought about a magnetic collar for Max?

If your interested in trying one, let me know, I"d be glad to make one for him, (I make them as well), let me know his neck measurement, (you don't want it tight, but not real loose)..we can experiment:)))

Diane - that is an excellent idea! It sure wouldn't hurt to try - and no side effects!
