    Default8 Year old now getting Novox (Doggie Ibuprofen) and Glucosamine and Chondroitin

    Hello-

    Happy to be here in the forum, this is my first post.

    My dog's name is Seamus. He''s 8 and I am just finishing his first bottle of Novox and glucosamine for sore joints, for an increasing unwillingness to jump up and down. He is a 100 pounder, so I can understand. I am trying to keep him a loose and as comfortable as possible and it seems to have helped. That said, the doctor originally started me on a chewable that cost hundreds of dollars. After doing some research, I found a non-chewable that I mix into his food. It goes down every time without a problem. The bottle of pills I have are Novox 100mg caplets in a quantity of 180. The Glucosamine/Chondroitin I have are called Dasuquin made by Nutramax. I'm wondering what, if any, info or experience others have that may be of use; namely types of comparable products and where people are getting them for the best price. I bought my last batch of the pills at a site called valleyvet.com, and they were about $100 mailed to my front door (as opposed to the $300 the vet was selling for the same in chewable). As far as the Glucosamine/Chondroitin, I haven't run out yet but it is also a prescription only, and would drove input from other prior to buying more.
    Best wishes to you and your best buddy.
    -Matt

    Hi,
    My dog takes Dasuquin.. keep up with that. Unfortunately, one of my labs had to stop taking Novox 100 mg due to having liver disease as a side effect from this med for about 2 years. I have also stopped it with my other lab for I fear he will get liver disease. I'm still reading and learning more about Novox and other meds for joint/pain. I buy it from Wag.com and 1800 Pet Med. I watch for their prices and determine the cheapest price. I believe you're on the right track with Dasuquin.
