Horse Glucosamine

Postby Tigerbeck » Fri Jan 01, 2010 9:54 pm

Hello-

I would like to get my dog back on glucosamine, but the good stuff can get pretty expensive. I bought a liquid bottle of dog stuff and on the back it mentioned dosage for a horse. I was wondering if I could purchase horse glucosamine for my dog. If so which brands are best.

The glucosamine/MSM supplement I use is geared towards horses. I used the PureForm Glucosamine Plus and have used it for years without issue.

and have you both seen good results? It seems when I start my dog on it she actually limps more. I had her on synovi for 3 months with no change, but I have heard others get good results from it.

Well, I do notice a difference when I have taken them off of it. It's definitely helping although my ''pet store guy'' lol said he's got a new product in that he found he liked better for his crew so I might try out something new next time.

I've got Roscoe on Glycoflex II, and do think it's helping him. I got almost a year's worth from healthypets.com for I think it was $63.

I use human supplement for it, which is what my vet recommended.

Khan takes OSteo Bi-Flex 1 pill twice a day.

What exactly does glucosamine do for your dogs?

I like Next level for horses. It has a dog dosage on the back.

I give Liquid Health, it has a dosage for dogs and horses on it. I am very pleased with the results. Cherry is a lot less stiff going up and down the stairs now.
