My mom has rhumatoid arthritis and she was doing research on adding holistic remedies to her treatment. The Arthritis Foundation has bee pollen on their list, so she tried it. It's worked miracles for her. After seeing how much it helped her, I looked into giving it to my oldest dog. I am trying to put off NSAIDs as long as possible, and this was my last shot at holistic before moving on to them. Within one week of starting it (in addition to her mobility supplement) she went from barely being able to go up 3 steps, to running around the yard like she is 6 years younger. She is feeling well enough I can put off meds for a bit longer. It's also helped my Chi with the stiffness from her luxating patellas. It's cheap too. I get it at the local farmers market, and it's $15 for a 6 month supply for all 3 of my dogs. You can find it online too through Dr. Harvey's ($15 for 1# though I'm sure that would last less than 6 mths). It's not ment to replace meds that are working, it just adds to them.
Adequin also rocks. It's worth the cost if the dog really needs it.

I found it works a ton better. I buy the 2# size and it lasts my Lucy (50#) just under 5 months.
She has been also taking the bee pollen in addition to the Mobility for about a month now, and the difference is amazing! It seems like she has reversed age 5 years. She has no problem with stairs anymore, and has actually been playing again.
My mom, whom has RA, has been taking it for about 2 months now. She has been able to almost completely stop her pain meds! She went from having to use a cane to walk around the house and a scooter to walk the dogs, to being able to start back in agility classes with her dogs.
