Anyone here giving it to their dog as a supplement? Any good or bad effects from it?

I have no personal experience with it but know it's been mentioned multiple times in Whole Dog Journal when discussing arthritis and joint injuries and supplements that are beneficial.

Thanks, the benefits of Boswellia when it comes to joint problems is the main reason I'm considering using it for my Brina. I will probably just have to try it and see if it changes anything. She doesn't really have major problems, just some occasional stiffness and weakness due to getting older.

Doing a google search with "whole dog journal boswellia" returned a fair number of articles published by Whole Dog Journal (and I always find them to be a very educational source of information) and I think you'll find them useful to you. :)

Yup. The supplements I use for Jack are a combo of glucosamine and boswellia. Boswellia functions as a natural anti-inflammatory, and conveniently enough for us (from what I've read, anyway) seems to be particularly effective for spinal issues.

Cool so I could use it together with glucosamine. Brina has been on glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM supplement for years, but her occasional weakness lately makes me think she needs something more than that. I'll try Boswellia and see how it goes. Thanks :thumbsup:
