Kenny Wilder: We started giving our dogs Glucosamine supplements for dogs years ago. I could tell you dozens of miracles about glucosamine for dogs. Dickens our little 7 pound Yorkie started limping about 5 years ago, and our Vet said that it was most likely genetic. Anybody that knows me the word impossible is not an option. We started him immediately on the Glucosamine and in about 2 months he only limped a few times a week. After 6 months all limping disappeared and after 5 years on glucosamine Dickens is totally healed. I'm sure many of you know Barbara, one of our favorite servers at the Waffle House. One day she was real sad about her little dog Boss. She said that he could not walk anymore, and that for several months she had to carry Boss outside so that he could relieve himself. She was considering putting Boss down. We told Barbara about Glucosamine. She tried it and after 1 to 2 months Boss was much better. It’s been about 7 months since she started Boss on Glucosamine and she says that he is running all over the back yard, and jumping up and off of the couch. I could go on with more good reports, but I think you get my message. Don’t wait until your dog shows a problem. Start them on Glucosamine TODAY!

Pro Sense Senior Daily Vitamin for Dogs
90 Tablets

Directions & Dosage: Dogs Under 10 Lbs - 1/2 Tablet Daily; Dogs 11-50 Lbs - 1 Tablet Daily; Dogs Over 50 Lbs - 2 Tablets Daily; For Sick, Convalescing, Pregnant Or Nursing Dogs - 2 Tablets Daily. May Be Given With Other Supplements Including Skin and Coat and Joint Care Supplements.
Kenny Wilder: All our dogs get a dog vitamin supplement every day.

Spring Valley Fish Oil 1000 mg, Omega-3 for Humans and Dogs
100 Softgels
Kenny Wilder: Our Vet 13 years ago recommended Omega-3 Fish Oil for one of our dogs that had severe skin allergies. It worked. All of our 5 dogs receive the fish oil softgels with their morning feeding. Folks always wonder why our dogs have shinny-soft fur and bright eyes...it's the Omega-3 Fish Oil. Another miracle supplement for your dog.

In a few days my message above will be lost because of new topics being posted. Therefore, I will copy and paste the above 3 supplements for dogs as a new topic on the Pet's forum.

You are right, Kenny - glucosamine is great for dogs (and can help people too!).

After one of my dogs, Dakota, blew out her ACL last year and had TPLO surgery, the physical therapist recommended both dogs start on the supplement, specifically recommending Dasuquin with MSM because of some of the other ingredients in it. They are almost six, and hopefully this will keep them active for a long time, and help with any arthritis, which will most likely affect Dakota more than Tess, her sister, due to the surgery.

My friend's older yorkie was limping and having some problems moving around (arthritis) - I gave her a bottle of the Dasuquin, and after a few months, he was running around without any problems. Good stuff, and good for people to know! Thanks for bringing the subject up, Kenny. :D

Tried fish oil a few years ago - Tess tolerates it, but Dakota did not. May have to try again.....

Well, I took Kenny's advice and went to get the supplements for Boudreaux. Got the Glucosimine/Condroitin with MSM, etc. and the Fish Oil pills.

Keep in mind that due to moving my daughter to college, we boarded him over the last two days (prior to last night and we picked him up yesterday) and he is a very nervous big dog and does not like the groomers or being boarded. He likes being here at the house at my feet. So, he probably did not eat yesterday. I gave him two pills of the Glucosimine supplement and he seconds later, threw up.

Today, this morning, I feed him first and (hid the fish oil pill in his food) and then gave him two supplements and he was fine. So, on an empty stomach, it may not take very well.

Also, is it possible that ProSense was purchased by GNC Animal Health? I tried Walgreens, Pet Depot and Pet Smart and none of them carry the brand as was originally indicated. I got the GNC brand with everything Kenny listed. The same GNC that humans use.

I will report back the findings on him.

I would first consult with your dog’s veterinarian about using Human instead of Dog MSM & glucosamine/chondroitin. They are the same except the human grade is a better quality. You don't want to over dose your dog though. Roughly, the human dose is for an average weight of a person, about 150 lbs. So you would need to break down the medication to meet the weight of your dog. Again, I would highly recommend your consulting your veterinarian.

Wal-Mart and Walgreens sell the Pro-Sense Dog MSM & glucosamine/chondroitin nationwide at it's stores and online. I buy mine at both stores here in Navarre.

Nope...got this at Pet Smart and it is the animal version of GNC. This is not human supplements, they are indeed animal pills.

Walgreen's by my house does not carry this brand.
