    DefaultGlucosimine dosage

    Diesel is starting to get a little stiff and it's time to start adding glucosimine to his day. How much/how often for an 85# dog? TIA!
    Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.

    Condrotin sulfate......400 mg
    MSM.......................100mg
    ascorbic acid............33mg
    Mn (ascorbate)........5 mg

    I give her one tablet once a day with food.

    To get any benefits at all....1500mg Gluc/1000 mg Chondroitin.
    Anything lower than that and it's pointless.

    Thanks! I gave him one 500 mg this morning and thought that more was probably in order. I appreciate the guidance.

    I give the same dose to my boys. Glad to hear that's what everyone else is doing too.

    ABSOLUTELY. Otherwise you are just throwing your money away. Consider 1000 mg of MSM too.

    Are you giving him Chondroitin as well?
    Gluc & Chond together give the best results.
    Gluc alone is not the most beneficial.

    Also...consider giving him MSM. I give Java 6000 mg per day (standard dog dosage is 1500 mg per day...but with all her ortho issues ortho surgeon recommended a higher dose). It is naturally occurring in the body, so no side effects or overdose issues. It is a great natural anti-inflammatory. I buy 4 lbs of powder MSM at a feed store for $18. Lasts 6 months....and Java had incredible results after upping the dose.

    1500 mg would be standard for his size...so just a little higher dose!!!
